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.
Check out the first Wonder Woman movie poster after the jump. Read More »
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.”
I’m on the set of Justice League watching a scene be filmed for Zack Snyder’s follow-up to the divisive Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

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 »
If the box office numbers are any indication, then all of you saw director Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice over the weekend. And why not? Negative reviews or not, the film is a proper event and a gigantic, towering moment in geek culture. Those bad reviews grease up discussion and inspire conversation, even as they try to warn you against actually seeing the movie.
And since you’ve seen it, we’re going to take a slightly deeper dive into the movie today, hand-picking stuff that works and stuff that doesn’t work for the purposes of spirited debate. Think of this as less of a review and more of an opportunity to pick this movie apart and/or defend it. And like it or not, Batman v Superman offers a lot to talk about. Spoilers follow.

The reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice have been generally negative, but almost everyone seems to agree that Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman is one of the strongest parts of the film. While Warner Bros. is undoubtedly sweating the not-so-nice press, this reaction must give them a momentary respite – at least people will still be interested in this character’s solo movie when it arrives next year.
And right on cue, a new photo from Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman movie has arrived, offering us a new look at Gadot (wearing some very different armor) as well as first looks at Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, and Lisa Loven Kongsli as the warrior women who train her how to be a total badass.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re less than a week away from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debut on the big screen, giving DC Comics fans the cinematic match-up they’ve been dreaming about for years. So far the trailers and TV spots have fans divided on their excitement for the battle, mostly due to their enjoyment or distaste for director Zack Snyder, but the box office tracking indicates this is undoubtedly going to be a huge movie.
If you’re desperate for as much footage from the movie as possible, you can check out five Batman v Superman clips. They’re basically extended bits of footage of snippets that we’ve seen in the trailers. We get a bit more of the battle of words between Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), but characters like Alfred (Jeremy Irons), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eiesenberg) Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Perry White (Laurence Fishburne) get some more screentime as well. Plus, one clip shows us a saucy exchange between Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).

One of the more interesting topics of conversation at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice press conference revolved around the creation of the DC movie universe. Director Zack Snyder revealed that the idea of one cinematic universe was not influenced by Marvel (sure…) but instead was the result of the story he wanted to tell in his Man of Steel sequel. The universe came from that idea, and evolved into a much much bigger plan.
