During last night’s TV special DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League on The CW, in addition to the new trailer for Suicide Squad, the first footage from Wonder Woman was unveiled. We didn’t know if there would simply be behind the scenes footage or actual shots from the film, and thankfully it ended up being the latter.
Gal Gadot can be seen in the first Wonder Woman footage kicking some serious ass with some slow motion shots that would make Zack Snyder proud. Plus we get to see her riding around on a horse and putting on her disguise as Diana Prince back in World War I. Read More »

Anticipating a lot of hype after tonight’s TV special, DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, on The CW tonight, the marketing team over at Warner Bros. Pictures has brought the social media channels for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie to life. And with the new Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts comes an official new logo for the superheroine played by Gal Gadot.
It’s not a big departure from the Wonder Woman logo we all know, though it does feel a little more industrial with the texture of the iconic double “W” looking a bit worn. Speaking of which, you can actually already grab some gear featuring the new Wonder Woman logo so you can be the coolest DC Comics fan on the block. Check out the new Wonder Woman logo and official gear below! Read More »
We’ve gotten plenty of glimpses of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, even if we haven’t seen her on the set of the heroine’s first solo film in the DC cinematic universe just yet. She’ll be popping up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next spring, so we already know what this big screen version of Wonder Woman is bringing to the table. But what we haven’t seen is her co-star Chris Pine, until now.
A new photo from behind the scenes of Wonder Woman has revealed Pine in his World War I wardrobe as Steve Trevor. But it’s the source of this photo that also reveals a new cast member that we hadn’t heard about yet. Read More »

From the outside, director Michelle MacLaren‘s departure from Wonder Woman came as a surprise. Even as Patty Jenkins stepped up to replace her a few days later, we kept wondering what the heck had happened. From the inside, however, the split was far less abrupt.
A new report delves deeper into the “creative differences” that drove MacLaren away. Among other things, it reveals MacLaren envisioned Wonder Woman as a Braveheart-esque origin tale, while studio Warner Bros. wanted… not that. Get the inside story of the Wonder Woman director shakeup after the jump. Read More »

And Michel Hazanavicius and his film The Artist take one more step towards total awards dominance. The film has topped critic lists since it premiered at Cannes in May of 2011, and in the past couple weeks has become an awards juggernaut.
Last weekend The Artist won the PGA award for best picture of 2011, and last night Hazanavicius took the Director’s Guild award for Outstanding Achievement in Feature Film in 2011. Given that it has been almost a decade since someone won the DGA award and didn’t take the Best Director Oscar we can safely bet on the outcome of the Academy Awards, which are still a month away. (On average, the DGA award and Oscar go to different people once a decade.)
For those disappointed that the documentary Project Nim, from Man on Wire director James Marsh, didn’t get an Oscar nod, his win for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary might be considered a great consolation. And Patty Jenkins, who was booted from Marvel’s Thor 2, took a DGA award for directing the pilot for The Killing.
The full list of winners is below. Read More »

Thor 2 made headlines back in September when it tapped Patty Jenkins to direct — making her the first female filmmaker ever chosen for a big Marvel Studios picture — and then again earlier this month when Jenkins was abruptly fired from her post. Now it seems the project’s back on track, as news breaks that Game of Thrones‘ Alan Taylor has been offered the job. Taylor and another Game of Thrones director, Daniel Minahan, were reported as the two finalists for the position a few weeks ago. More details after the jump.

We were surprised when Monster director Patty Jenkins vacated the directorial chair for Marvel Studios’ Thor 2. Her hire was unexpected in the first place, as women are rarely given the chance to direct studio event pictures, and Marvel Studios hasn’t directly hired a woman to direct one of its superhero features. (Punisher: War Zone was directed by Lexi Alexander, but wasn’t directly a Marvel Studios movie.)
When Jenkins left the film the report was that she had moved on thanks to ‘creative differences’ and that the split between her and Marvel was amicable. Now there is contrary word saying that Jenkins was fired, perhaps summarily, and that Thor co-star Natalie Portman, who campaigned for Jenkins to be hired, is furious over the situation. Read More »
Patty Jenkins, who famously directed Charlize Theron to an Oscar in Monster, had been set to direct Marvel’s Thor 2 for some time. She was meeting with the cast and all was looking well for the film’s November 15, 2013 release date. However, Jenkins has now left the project due to creative differences making her the second director to leave the project, the first being Game of Thrones helmer Brian Kirk. There’s more below.
