Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot

Over the weekend, a brand new Wonder Woman trailer hit the web and revealed a slew of new footage from the next film in the DC Expanded Universe franchise. While the previous trailers showcased the power of Wonder Woman with some spectacular action, this one slowed things down a bit to show us more of the origin story that’s at the center of the superhero’s first solo movie from director Patty Jenkins.

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 »

Wonder Woman Trailer

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 »

Wonder Woman Director Interview - Patty Jenkins

Yesterday, we talked about the 16 minutes of Wonder Woman that Warner Bros. Pictures and director Patty Jenkins showed us at their post-production facility in London, not to mention details on the story presentation that laid out the events of the first act of the movie for us. Now we get to dive deeper into all the work that Jenkins has poured into this movie, which has been something she had pursued on and off for 10 years before she finally ended up behind the camera.

In between watching the Wonder Woman footage, we were able to speak with Jenkins as a group for about 40 minutes, talking about everything from how the film changed throughout the various pitches she made over the years to how much of an influence Richard Donner’s Superman has been on the movie, and how they chose to approach the character through a modern lens.

Wonder Woman Tone

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 »

Wonder Woman - Who is Playing Ares in Wonder Woman?

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 Plot Details

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.

Wonder Woman Footage Recap

As part of our visit to Warner Bros. post-production facility for Wonder Woman in London, England, director Patty Jenkins sat down to preview some footage from the DC Comics film adaptation. This is the first time the footage has been screened for anyone outside of the film’s post-production crew, so Jenkins was happy to share the result of all the work they’ve been doing.

We were shown four different scenes from Wonder Woman, which totaled up to roughly 16 minutes of footage. While there were some unfinished effects, an incomplete sound mix, and a temporary score, the scenes in question gave us a good idea of what we can expect from Patty Jenkins, and it looks like exactly the kind of movie that the DC Expanded Universe needs right now.
