I know. Marvel’s kicking DC’s @$$, Warners is grapsing desperately to catch up, Zack Snyder is a hollow, talentless hack; all the talking points for why Man of Steel 2 (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) will be handing its lunch money to Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016. But let’s put all that aside for the moment and talk about expectations. Not yours or mine, but the director’s. Snyder is talking about his own ideas, how he struck upon the notion that led to the movie known to all Batman Vs Superman, and he’s also talking about those initial screen tests for the costumes on the holy trinity: Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman. (Sadly, the above image is as close as you’ll get to seeing it for yourself… For nooooooowwwwwwww…) (more…)
With CinemaCon officially wrapped up there seems to be a few dangling threads. Late last week, twitter was abuzz with the possibility that there might be a few reveals trickling out of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel sequel; most notably the big reveal on Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit in celebration of DC’s launch of Batman’s 75th anniversary celebration. Those fires were kicked up a notch when Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara told the New York Times that announcements (note the plural) on a unified DC cinematic universe were imminent.
Well, the weekend has come and gone, and so far we haven’t see any sign of those announcements (save for those Green Lantern rumblings.) But, that might not be entirely true. The folks over at SpoilerShoot.com have posted a handful of pictures late last night from what was reported to be the abandoned launch for DC’s foray into the joined comic book universe market.

Zack Snyder- who recently sat down with Hero Complex to discuss a variety of Batman Vs. Superman topics, such as fan reaction to casting and when shooting will begin- gave something of an explanation of why we are all so confused over the news coming out of the pre-production. “What explanation could he have for Ben Affleck as Batman, or Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor?!” I hear you scream at your computer screen in a violent fit of rage. Well, because the Man of Steel sequel plans of “explode” the universes that we know and love, and create something new entirely. (more…)
Thank you for clicking this article. I know that the subject of Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel is a sensitive one, and is somehow more sensitive than when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for the movie. Anyway, despite Gadot’s somewhat public appeal to convince over-anxious fanboys that she’s working hard to work out, I suspect she’s not going to win anyone over till the credits roll on Batman Vs Superman, or whatever it’s called.
But now time for a serious question: what is Wonder Woman going to wear? Oscar-nominated costume designer Michael Wilkinson (American Hustle) took time out of his Oscar weekend to talk about his work on the upcoming superhero movie, particularly in regard to Wonder Woman’s outfit. (more…)
When Gal Gadot was cast as our first big screen Wonder Woman, saying that it was met with some criticism would be an understatement. Blind fan-being rage and consternation (mixed with weird body image issues in some instances,) even seems to fall a bit short. The leading complaint seemed to be that she was ‘too skinny’ and ‘didn’t have the right body type’ (meaning breasts apparently) and that she lacked the physicality that a fictitious amazonian princess should have (you’re still talking about breasts, aren’t you?)
Well, after initially (and a tad sarcastically) responding to the criticism with her words, she’s put her money where her mouth is… that is she’s posted some shots of her working out on her facebook. (more…)
A short while back, actress Gal Gadot confirmed that she had been signed up to play the iconic character of Wonder Woman in more films than just the 2016 Batman vs. Superman flick. And while she avoided detailing the exact scope of her contract, it has now come to our attention that there are very specific films that Warner Bros. is looking towards with regards to her involvement. Apparently, after Batman vs. Superman is over, she shall, if the studio continues to pursue its super hero movie barrage, be getting a spot in the Justice League film as well as a solo Wonder Woman flick. Read on for more. (more…)
The announcement Israeli actress, Gal Gadot was cast as Wonder Woman for DC and Warner Bros.’ burgeoning cinematic universe was met with a mixed response at best. Since then, the actress has responded to her critics and proven she’s got the determination and sense of humor needed to handle the harassment that comes along with being cast as an iconic superhero. In her most recent interview with Israel’s leading entertainment show, Good Evening with Gai Pines, Gadot shares even more about her upcoming role as the Amazon princess. (more…)
Wonder Woman’s been getting a lot of press lately, and unfortunately, not always for the best reasons. The casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel was met with a mixed response at best. Then there were those rumors of Diana no longer being an Amazon but another Kryptonian descendent, which thankfully turned out to be false. Oh! And then the CW scrapped their plans for a Wonder Woman television show. With all the recent bad news for Wondy, it’s nice to have a clip where she simply does what she does best: kicks butt. (more…)
Before we all got bogged down in this Gal Gadot and “Are her boobs big enough to play Wonder Woman?” nonsense, there was an idea to get Wonder Woman back on our TV’s and I’m not referring to the Adrianne Palicki version. When Arrow became a hit last fall, The CW wondered (hehe) what other superhero characters they could give the “Year One” treatment, and they liked one pitch called Amazon. Although it wasn’t ready for this past fall, many believed that the netlet would give it another go, but today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, CW bosses said for the record that Amazon is no more.

It’s simply one unfounded rumor after another when it comes to Batman vs. Superman, isn’t it? Welcome to the internet, where a comment made in passing, innocently speculating about an upcoming film can quickly turn in to solid, hard “fact”. That’s precisely what happened yesterday when the internet was besieged by reports Wonder Woman was now a descendent of Kryptonians. Initiate head asplode. (more…)
