In a few months, we will receive the fourth DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film, Wonder Woman. The period film focuses on the Amazon princess (Gal Gadot) as she meets Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), the first man she has ever seen, when he washes ashore the island of Themyscira.

Although actor Danny Huston has been cast as an antagonist of some kind, it’s unclear whether or not he and Ares, one of her primary antagonists from the comic books, will be one and the same or perhaps one working in service of the other.

There’s a new International trailer out for director Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot. While most won’t understand the Russian, there’s no misunderstanding the action in the film that is being promoted heavily overseas and that is just the way things should be. There’s no trying to tie this movie into a larger DC Cinematic Universe, this movie is about strangely enough, Wonder Woman. Imagine that. Hopefully Patty Jenkins will continue to be able to fend off all the studio executive’s notes trying to shoehorn anything and everything Justice League into the movie. (more…)
