Geekery: A First Look at Wonder Woman’s Major Foe

We get our first glimpse of the evil looming behind the war in this pair of TV spots.

The first gives us a new look into Diana’s relationship with Steve Trevor and how her alias came to be…

We get a very glimpse view of what Lego leaked earlier this month in the next spot at about 11 seconds in…

There’s hope that this movie will end DC’s streak of bad releases. It breaks a bit of the mold in how they’ve been making movies. It’s directed by Patty Jenkins, and the screenplay was written by Allan Heinberg. Snyder in listed as a producer and wrote the story’s backbone because it has to tie into his Justice League movies, but that’s it. Oscar winner Martin Walsh is the sole name on editing. It feels like it’s going to be different, but it’s DC.

The glimpses we’ve gotten have been beautiful. Maybe it’ll add up to the movie we’ve been wanting out of the company, but I’m not setting the bar very high.

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2

    This will most likely be the best DC movie to date, especially considering Snyder hasn’t got his hands on it.

  • Randy Randalman

    It’s still DC, so it will be about a full tier below the worst of the Marvel films thus far, but that’s an improvement.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    I am hoping this film will be good because a) No Snyder, b) smaller scale story and c) DC needs a win.

    • Severius_Tolluck

      It’s also The Great War.. so that is a + in my book.

    I want this to be good, but the track record so far is disappointing. I haven’t groaned openly at any of the trailers or ads yet, so there’s still hope.

    All of my extremities are crossed for this film (included my arms wearing the Bracelets of Victory (EVA foam Cosplay Version)).

    One thing this has in its favour is that kick-arse Wonder Woman theme music. I can see that working like ”007 Takes The Lektor”* (or pretty much any theme by John Barry), or the Mission Impossible Theme, to instantly ramp up the excitement level of any scene it is dropped in to.

    The best scene for me in BvS:DoJ was Bruce Wayne looking at a photograph with this piece of music playing over the shot.

    *as borne out by its use in Neon Genesis Evangelion (Decisive Battle) 😉

    if this movie fails, it’ll be because of the media desert around it.

    looks awesome. but it’s really not being hyped
