One of the most common criticisms of the DC expanded universe so far (from fans and critics alike) has been the consistently, overtly dark tone of the movies. Both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just seem dour for the sake of being dour, and while Suicide Squad had a little more fun with the comic book world, many are hoping future movies will lighten up a bit. The tone of Justice League certainly indicates a change in tone, at least if the sizzle reel from Comic-Con is any indicator, but it sounds like Wonder Woman will be the one that really stands out.
Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, producer Deborah Snyder and director Patty Jenkins recently opened up a bit about what to expect from Wonder Woman, specifically with regards to how it will be different from the previous DC movies, especially with regards to a lighter tone.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H. Thankfully for fans at home, every single piece of footage they showed at the convention ended up online, from the Justice League sizzle reel to The LEGO Batman Movie trailer. But honestly, the best thing to come out of the panel was the first trailer for Wonder Woman. You’ve probably watched it plenty of times by now, but we wanted to do a little breakdown of the footage we see in the tease for the first solo adventure of the DC Comics superhero.

When Warner Bros announced their Hall H line-up for San Diego Comic Con International 2016, Justice League was mysteriously absent. So its not shocking that Zack Snyder brought his still-in-production film to San Diego — its more like an expected surprise. They revealed a new piece of Justice League concept art, giving you a better look at the Aquaman and Flash costumes. We also got a sizzle reel, which you can watch below.

The Warner Bros. Pictures panel at Comic-Con isn’t happening until Saturday morning into the afternoon, but that doesn’t mean the studio still doesn’t have some reveals they can dish out beforehand. Today the studio unveiled the first official teaser poster for Wonder Woman, the superhero’s first solo big screen adventure following her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. Even though we don’t see much of Gal Gadot‘s face in the poster, it does shine a light on her costume and weapon of choice.

Next week brings the annual madness of Comic-Con in San Diego, and with it comes a sneak peeks of what’s to come from our favorite TV shows and upcoming blockbusters. As usual, Warner Bros. Pictures has their own panel and they’re bringing plenty of good stuff with them for Suicide Squad, The LEGO Batman Movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Kong: Skull Island and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. But perhaps the most exciting tease we’ll get will be for Wonder Woman.
We’re expecting some brand new footage from Wonder Woman to be revealed in Hall H at Comic-Con, maybe even the first official trailer that everyone will get to see regardless of whether or not they’re at the convention. In the meantime, some new Wonder Woman photos have arrived online featuring Gal Gadot ready for battle. Plus, we get another glimpse at Chris Pine in the movie as well. Read More »
Standing before me in black tactical gear, hair combed back but just a bit unruly, Jon Hamm looks exactly like Sterling Archer. He’s not wearing a tactleneck, but aside from that detail the illusion is perfect. As seemingly everyone did, I watched Hamm on Mad Men for years, so the timbre of his voice and his patterns of speech are intimately familiar. But in this getup I expect — I want — him to sound like Archer.
Jon Hamm knows this. He’s voiced a character on the show, after all. And would you be shy if knew you were the living incarnation of TV’s greatest/most irritating spy? Probably not. “Lanaaaaaaa!” he bellows before anyone can ask him to do so.
We’re outside the Atlanta set of Keeping Up With the Joneses, a 20th Century Fox movie in which Hamm plays half of a super-spy couple living undercover in the suburbs. His character Tim Jones is partnered with Natalie Jones, played by Gal Gadot, in life and work. We see the glamorous, ultra-capable pair through the eyes of a much more mundane couple, who are more than slightly agog as the spies-in-disguise set up stakes in their quiet, tree-lined neighborhood.

Between the Fast and Furious movies and her ongoing role as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ DC universe, Gal Gadot has plenty of action-hero cred. What she hasn’t really had a chance to do is show off her comedy chops. But that changes now, thanks to director Greg Mottola (of Superbad and Paul).
Gadot and Jon Hamm star as the Joneses, a glamorous, sophisticated, picture-perfect couple who move into a perfectly ordinary suburb. They dazzle their new neighbors, especially Jeff (Zach Galifianakis) and Karen (Isla Fisher). What Jeff and Karen don’t realize right away is that the Joneses are spies. Watch the Keeping Up With the Joneses trailer below. Read More »

Thunder crashes in the distance as lightning flashes on a gothic-looking rooftop. The iconic Bat Signal shoots a beam of light into the sky as Commissioner Gordon looks out over Gotham City. On the other side of the rooftop, Batman appears, flanked by Wonder Woman and the Flash.
“How many of you are there?” asks Gordon.
Batman dryly responds, “Not enough.”

Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, bringing a fresh and unpredictable energy to the grim third-act battle sequence. For fans who felt that the film (and Man of Steel before it) was too damn dark, she was a shining beacon of light, an uncomplicated hero who actually had the audacity to smile while battling a giant monster from another world.
But the DC Extended Universe is still the DC Extended Universe. And so it should not surprise you to hear that Wonder Woman’s standalone movie, due out next year, is going to be… also pretty dark. Although, Gadot hastens to assure fans, that doesn’t mean it’ll be without moments of levity. Read More »
