The heroes of Titans and Young Justice aren’t the only DC hitters getting an overhaul from Warner Bros.; the DC Super Hero Girls are headed to high school as well. Cartoon Network has commissioned a new 2018 series returning Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl from a series of online shorts.
Early reactions to Wonder Woman hit the internet last week, with many critics hailing it as the best DCEU film yet, so when recent reports suggested that the studio is already plotting a sequel, it had us feeling even more optimistic for WB’s first...
Supergirl has become the second CW DC drama to close out its season, and packing quite a punch at that. Not only did we get a Superman vs. Supergirl showdown, but also a Reign-ing hint at Season 3’s big bad, a Wonder-ous mini-crossover, and perhaps even a Legion of Super-Heroes tease!
Nowadays, watching a superhero movie without a post-credits scene or two feels almost incomplete. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gave us an unprecedented four mid-credits scenes, and a few MCU movies before that had had at least two. But the DCEU is different, with both Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman eschewing the post-credits scene rule in favor of letting the movie end at the credits and allowing audience members to go the heck home. However, Suicide Squad did have one — which featured Amanda Waller handing over her files to Bruce Wayne. No doubt that was meant to connect Suicide Squad to the Justice League, but does that mean the upcoming Wonder Woman will also have a scene after the credits have rolled?
Those fans curious about when they’d see a new Wonder Woman poster need no longer wonder. [douses self in gasoline, flings immolating body off of steep cliff into shark-infested waters] Now that the customary pun penance — punance, if you will — is all over and through with, we can present the new one-sheet for Warner Bros.’ upcoming big screen outing for Diana Prince without any further ado. And it just might be the most handsome poster yet, a swirl of warm primary colors with the focus on a radical juxtaposition.
It’s funny how things tend to come in pairs. Just a few minutes after watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Titus Burgess perform a song from Disney’s Broadway adaptation of The Little Mermaid as part of this weekend’s Vulture Festival, I happened to read an interview with the Wonder Woman screenwriter who explains how his film was influenced by the Hans Christian Andersen classic. At this rate, I’ll be in the bathtub and humming along to “Under the Sea” by the time the sun goes down.
We’re only two weeks away from the release of DC Films’ Wonder Woman, and by my watch, that means it’s time for Warner Bros. to open the floodgates a bit when it comes to marketing the film. And wouldn’t you know it? Right on schedule, the studio has released a whole bunch of clips from the new film. We’ve got scenes where Wonder Woman throws down against enemy soldiers, scenes where Wonder Woman struggles to understand the “modern” world, and a whole bunch of scenes where Chris Pine plays the comic relief to Gal Gadot’s straight woman. If you’ve been hoping for a closer look at the world that director Patty Jenkins has put together, here’s your chance.
So far the reviews of the DC Extended Universe movies have been ... uh, what’s the opposite of good? Bad. They’ve been bad. The first three movies — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad — have an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 36. That is bad. The opposite of good. For sure.
It wouldn’t be a superhero movie without a glowy weapon of some sort. Wonder Woman has a sword and a shield, but her coolest weapon is her lasso of truth, which makes whomever is stuck in it unable to lie — and also acts as a pretty useful fighting tool on its own. World War I soldiers probably aren’t going to expect to get roped by a screaming Amazon during battle.
92 percent. That’s the number of moviegoers who want to see a female-led superhero movie, according to the results of a new poll released to coincide with advance ticket sales for Wonder Woman. 92 percent isn’t shocking, but what is shocking is that despite OBVIOUS audience interest, it’s been over 10 years since the last superhero movie featuring a woman hit theaters. What gives?
