Some of the internet was abuzz yesterday about a supposed lack of promotion for Wonder Woman at this time with a little over a month to go until the film arrives on June 2. The logic behind this is that the official Warner Bros. YouTube channel for Wonder Woman has significantly less videos promoting the movie than Suicide Squad when the movie was at the same point in its marketing cycle. Forget the fact that Suicide Squad had a much larger roster of lesser known main characters they had to introduce as opposed to one of the most well known superheroes of all time. Clearly, there’s a conspiracy afoot here!
Anyway, it seems like Warner Bros. Pictures’ ears must have been burning yesterday, because they’ve released two new Wonder Woman TV spots, including one that gives a sneak peek at the villain Ares facing off with Gal Gadot. Plus, for all you dedicated Wonder Woman fans out there, there’s an Ultimate Ticket you can pick up that will let you see the movie as many times as you want. This is just the beginning of the onslaught of marketing we’ll see over the next month for Wonder Woman.

Gal Gadot came pretty close to actually becoming a real Wonder Woman when she returned to Leavesden Studios outside London to finish some reshoots for Wonder Woman.
It was November of last year, and Gadot was five months pregnant with her second child, her baby bump conspicuously showing. But through some movie magic and some plain old female badassery, Gadot filmed the reshoots without a hitch, showing us all up.
Find out how Gal Gadot shot Wonder Woman pregnant after the jump.

It’s a very quiet week in entertainment news, as the movie studios are all seemingly stepping aside to allow Disney to do their thing at Star Wars Celebration over the next few days. But the Warner Bros. marketing team isn’t letting this week go by without throwing a tiny bone to fans of the DC Extended Universe, so they’ve released a teaser poster for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. This poster, though…there’s something strange about it.

The release of Wonder Woman is a little under two months away, but box office analysts are already paying close attention to the next installment of the DC Expanded Universe. Following hotly debated movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, all eyes are on Wonder Woman to help course correct a comic book universe that has disappointed as many audiences as they’ve pleased.
Therefore, it’s a little disappointing to hear that right now, Wonder Woman is currently tracking to have the lowest opening of any movie in the DC Expanded Universe. Find out more about the Wonder Woman box office tracking below. Read More »
Following a barrage of new posters and trailer teasers, the new Justice League trailer is finally here.
Zack Snyder is back as director to bring DC Comics’ biggest superheroes together as a team for the first time on the big screen. Though Superman (Henry Cavill) is still in the ground, we know at some point he’ll be back to join the rest of the superhero squad. In the meantime, Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) are left to face threats to the world themselves, and according to Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare vision from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, eventually that will include Superman himself.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Watch the new Justice League trailer after the jump. Read More »

In our Wonder Woman trailer breakdown below, we take a much closer look at the new footage on display. So let’s see what this first adventure for the Goddess of Truth has in store for us. But beware of possible spoilers if you want to go into the movie completely blind. Read More »
Gal Gadot effectively stole Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice away from The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel when she debuted as Wonder Woman last year. But this summer, she won’t have to vie for attention, because the super-powered Amazon warrior is finally getting her own movie.
Wonder Woman begins in modern day, following the events of Batman v Superman, but when Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) receives a package from Bruce Wayne contianing the old photograph she was trying to recover from Lex Luthor, she’s overwhelmed with the memories of her past. From there, we flashback to the early days of Diana’s life and how she first became entangled with mankind. Now a new Wonder Woman trailer reveals more about the origins of the hero and the discovery of her destiny. Read More »
Having seen 16 minutes of Wonder Woman, as well as a presentation of the events in the first act of the film, we finally have a good idea of what all the key players in the film are doing. Obviously there’s our superheroine Diana Prince, but there are also the Amazons who raised her, a few villains, some helpful heroes, and more.
We’ve put together a Wonder Woman character breakdown based on what we’ve learned about the movie so far, including some speculation on what might be in store for a couple of the characters. Read More »

One of the biggest mysteries in Wonder Woman has been who the real villain of the film could be. We know that Danny Huston is playing a rogue German general named Erich Ludendorff, and Elena Anaya is playing his right-hand woman Doctor Maru. But as we’ve heard recently, Ares the god of war, may be the ultimate villain in Wonder Woman. But the question is, who is playing him?
A rumor from not too long ago pegged Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban co-star David Thewlis as playing Ares, indicating that he would be brought to life with practical and digital effects and that he was in pursuit of some kind of poisonous gas to unleash upon the frontlines of the war.
Since then, we’ve learned that David Thewlis is playing a character named Sir Patrick Morgan, a character who is on the war council for the Allied forces, an advocate of peace. However, that doesn’t necessarily debunk the rumor that he’s playing Ares, and a revelation that came from the 16 minutes of footage we watched at the Warner Bros. post-production facility for Wonder Woman in London may be the key in sorting this out.
Let’s talk about our theory concerning who is playing Ares in Wonder Woman. Read More »
Wonder Woman is coming to theaters this summer, with Gal Gadot starring in the DC Comics superhero’s first solo outing after debuting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With the exception of a photo revealing Diana Prince posing with some soldiers in World War I, her life remains shrouded in mystery in that film. But that’s about to change.
Director Patty Jenkins is giving us Wonder Woman’s origin story. While comic book movie fans may be tired of finding out about how these superheroes began, Wonder Woman has never been given this treatment on the big screen before. It helps that she has one of the more unique origin stories in comic book lore, so this won’t feel like we’re treading familiar territory.
Warner Bros. invited /Film to their post-production facility in London, England for a story presentation (as well as a preview of footage) that laid out some new Wonder Woman plot details, explaining what the first act of the film will entail.
If you want to go into Wonder Woman fresh, then stop reading! There may be some spoilers below, depending on what you don’t want to know about the movie. Read More »
