Wonder Woman
Director: Patty Jenkins
Screenplay: Geoff Johns, Allan Heinberg
Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: June 2, 2017

Given that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad received such poor reviews (including from me), it’s easy to believe that WB could not put out anything remotely entertaining within the DCEU. Their constant meddling and the films’ lack of care certainly proved that they were not up to the task of competing with their rivals at Marvel Studios. But then came Wonder Woman. And this isn’t just about her own standalone film, which opens this weekend — we’ll get to that later — this is about her literally carrying the weight of the DCEU on her shoulders. For it was her who saved Batman v Superman from being a complete abomination. Her wit, her mystery, her power, and her inspiration that carried on throughout that film that had many asking when is Wonder Woman going to get her own feature.

Now that time has come. After years of standing on comic book shelves, the character has finally gotten her own film, simply titled Wonder Woman. Her own story to tell, with no assistance from the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel. Through stunning grace, incredible power, and mighty courage, not only is Wonder Woman what a superhero film should be, it showcases an empowering figure who should be an inspiration to anyone, but most importantly to females who have waited for a character they could look up to.

‘Wonder Woman’ Trailer: Gal Gadot Puts A Stop To The Wrath Of Evil
  |  @   |  

After three DCEU films failed to live up to expectations, it’s easy to see why everything about DC’s shared film universe rides on the success of Wonder Woman. Based on what we’ve seen so far, it looks like the film will not disappoint. Of course, the character, played by Gal Gadot, had a little bit of a head start when she appeared alongside Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where she practically stole the show with her heroics.

The title film will be the first major female superhero film to hit theaters, and now Warner Bros. has dropped a new trailer to give us another taste of what is to come. Check it out here below.

Will Harry Potter’s David Thewlis Play Ares In ‘Wonder Woman’?
  |  @   |  

While Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) has been performing her heroic duties in most of the marketing campaign for her upcoming solo film Wonder Woman, there has been no sign of a villain yet. TV spots and trailers seem to indicate that there wouldn’t be a super-powered villain, and the film would just be a battle over the Mother Box McGuffin. However, there is a new rumor that says David Thewlis (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) will be playing the role of Ares, the Greek god of war. More on the story below.
