Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman

Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #2 (2017)

After August’s Suicide Squad, the next installment on DC’s road to Justice League is the Wonder Woman solo film.  The first trailer for the film was unveiled at Comic Con. The second full trailer is out now, along with three gorgeous posters.  “Gorgeous” is really the best word to describe WW so far.  It looks stunning.  However, every time I hear dialogue, I wince.  Geoff Johns didn’t get hired to start righting the disastrous rollout of the DCEU until after Wonder Woman was done, so his influence isn’t going to be felt until Justice League.  Question is: by the time we get there, is anyone going to care when Marvel is throwing no-hitter after no-hitter?  Starring Gal Gadot, Robin Wright, Chris Pine, and David Thewlis, Wonder Woman is scheduled to open June 2, 2017.

  1. Sure WW looks like it’s going to be gorgeous, but Barton Fink is one of the most gorgeous-looking movies ever made, and I am not a fan. I look forward to the time I’m going to spend in the MCU, but right now I’m mostly visiting the DCEU out of a sense of obligation.

    Doctor Strange is now tied with Guardians as my favorite MCU film. In a lot of ways cinematic origin stories don’t get more formulaic, but this one was carried off with such panache that I am not complaining. In fact, while I was watching the movie, seeing my beloved hero come to life and absorbing some of the best special effects ever produced, I started to get a feeing I never thought I would. Namely, I now believe that film is the ultimate medium to showcase these characters.

    Obviously there have only been 14 MCU films, as opposed to the thousands and thousands of comic books that Marvel has printed down through the decades, and you can’t replicate the kind of characterization and storytelling possibilities you get from the ongoing printed sagas. And yet I got a feeling from this movie that is hard to describe.

    I’ll see if it’s still there tomorrow.

    Sad to see Mads Mikkelsen wasted, but of course he was. On the other hand there was a lot of talk about the revised Ancient One, yet I love Tilda Swinton, and I loved her here.
