So far we've only seen a handful of photos and a teaser for Wonder Woman’s upcoming solo debut, but Warner Bros. made sure to bring some surprises to San Diego Comic-Con today. After playing a brief teaser featuring logos for their upcoming DC movies and introducing their diverse lineup of directors (including James Wan and Rick Famuyiwa), WB debuted the first full, official trailer for Wonder Woman.
There may be less movie panels at Comic-Con 2016 than in any recent year, but Warner Bros. is still bringing several of their upcoming blockbusters to Hall H tomorrow — that includes Wonder Woman, the highly-anticipated solo film starring Batman v Superman scene-stealer Gal Gadot. Ahead of her appearance in San Diego tomorrow, the actress has debuted a brand new poster for her new movie, and it is beautiful.
It feels like Comic-Con has already begun, what with all the new sneak peeks at upcoming movies like Rogue One and The Dark Tower. But how about a fresh look at a new superhero film? Four images from Wonder Woman have debuted online, and as you can see, it looks like Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince is looking for a fight.
Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, we have our first bit of news about Warner Bros.’ ‘Wonder Woman.’
The drama of Supergirl moving to The CW understandably swept a few Season 2 questions aside, particularly reports of producers eying Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter for a presidential role. Thankfully, Supergirl will follow through on its wondrous casting, confirming that Season 2 will introduce Carter as Supergirl’s Madam POTUS.
The new Big Bad of the DC Comics Universe is Zack Snyder.
NBC’s half-baked DC comedy Powerless won’t officially make its impact until sometime at midseason, but the full trailer managed to make its way online ahead of schedule. Get it while it’s hot, as DC namedrops galore rain down on the superhero insurance comedy!
Following the negative reactions to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the party line over at Warner Bros. right now seems to be “fun.” Studio executives and creatives have been assuring fans that, moving forward, their DC movies are going to be a bit lighter than Zack Snyder’s grim-and-gritty superhero epic. And while we’ve been told The Flash and Justice League movies will be fun, someone apparently didn’t get that memo for Wonder Woman.
Even before the early reviews began rolling in, the trailers solidified Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman as the most exciting attraction in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Audiences agreed, as Wonder Woman — whose name isn’t even in the title of the film — ranked highest in a recent poll that asked fans which character they were most eager to see in Zack Snyder’s superhero epic. As predicted, Gadot’s debut is definitely the best thing in Batman v Superman, and although her part only makes up about seven minutes of the film’s 150-minute runtime, those few minutes are riveting — but not enough to justify Snyder’s unfortunate treatment of the remaining female characters.
Supergirl has played every bit of homage to prior productions as her DC counterparts, finding roles for just about every other Kara Zor-El, so might Wonder Woman be next? Supergirl producers reveal an authoritative role in mind for Lynda Carter come Season 2, you know, presuming Supergirl gets a Season 2 (it’s going to get a Season 2).
