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.

A pattern is emerging from Warner Bros.’ DC universe movies, and it’s not an encouraging one. First Man of Steel got the franchise off to a shaky start, drawing mixed reviews and polarizing fans. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was supposed to get the series back on track, but instead just seemed to derail it further. So pressure fell on Suicide Squad to turn things around… only for Suicide Squad to prove just as divisive as its predecessors.
Which means all eyes are now on next year’s Wonder Woman to save the day. After all, the character was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman, and the first Wonder Woman trailer absolutely killed at Comic-Con. If anyone can make things right, it might be Gal Gadot‘s Diana Prince. Or so we thought. But according to an anonymous insider, Wonder Woman is “a mess” as well. Naturally, director Patty Jenkins disagrees. Read More »
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.

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.

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 »

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.
