Trailer Time: Wonder Woman Trailer #4 (2017) “Diana of Themiscyra”

Wonder Woman got a mini-trailer during last night’s episode of Gotham: it’s fourth, if you’re scoring at home.  WW is film #4 in the DCEU, and hopefully a home run that can unite fans that have been divided over the first three installments.  Personally, I really liked Man of Steel, despised Batman vs. Superman, was meh on Suicide Squad, but here’s why I’m rooting for Wonder Woman: the DCU is amazing.  It’s less cohesive than the MCU, but that’s not been the problem with the film universe so far.  The problem was a lack of an equivalent to Kevin Feige at Marvel: someone who knows the universe inside and out who can stand up to WB’s famous interference with its super hero properties and Geoff Johns is that person if one exists.  Johns knows the DCU from his tenure resurrecting both The Flash and Green Lantern comic franchises, then the entire DC Comics line (which is better overall than Marvel’s confusing mess of a universe for my money), and now he’s basically in charge of all things DC….period.  I’m rooting for WW and Justice League (still hate the last trailer, but I’m rooting for it and my dream Aquaman/Batman road trip movie).  The comic book genre will suffer if the DCEU fails.  The same goes for FOX and its X-verse, and any other movies in the genre.  Even if you’re a Marvel person, rooting for the DCEU to fail is stupid, because it’s going to bring down the whole ship.  So get behind both universes, and hope we get a winner when Wonder Woman opens June 2, 2017.
