Earlier this month, Warner Bros. revealed that actress Gal Gadot had been cast as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film, becoming the first person to play the iconic character in a major motion picture. And because the internet can be a terrible place, many took this as an invitation to head to social media and viciously criticize her body -- a move that reflects the kind of behavior we're guessing Wonder Woman would probably disapprove of.
Gadot recently gave her first extended public remarks about taking on the role, discussing the internet reaction to the news, her own reaction when she was told she got the part, as well as what she's going through to physically prepare to play the Amazonian princess.
With the tremendous success of films like The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, as well as Hollywood's focus on turning as many popular super hero properties into films as possible, demand for a Wonder Woman movie is perhaps at an all time high. And while there's still no official movie in the works as of yet, it's possible we're now one step closer, as it's been announced that Fast and Furious star Gal Gadot has been cast to play Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, representing the first time the pop culture icon will appear in a feature film.
From the looks of it, The LEGO Movie tells the classic hero's journey story. An ordinary guy finds himself in extraordinary circumstances, and he rises to them.
There are just a couple twists on that: First, he's a LEGO man. Second, he is routinely assisted by Batman (and Wonder Woman, and Superman, and maybe Abraham Lincoln, though he seems to be on the fence). Check out the brand-new trailer for the movie after the jump.
When the DC Universe relaunched in 2011 with The New 52, the idea was to put a current-day spin on superheroes: lots of seams in the costumes, more aggressive attitudes, rockier relationships.
If the trailer for Justice League: War, the new animated film that adapts the first storyline from The New 52, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee's initial six-issue arc from Justice League, is any indication, it has all been set to a dubstep soundtrack, too. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Toymaker Tonner has been crafting high-end DC Comics fashion dolls for awhile now, but this December fans will be able to find versions of Supergirl, Wonderwoman and Mera sporting their Jim Lee-designed New 52 costumes.
Greg Capullo, Forever Evil, Batman: Arkham City and George Pérez are some of the key draws in the DC Collectibles solicitations for January, with a number of the items serving as the first chance fans have had to pick them up since they appeared as San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this past summer. New Batman, Talon, Riddler and Nightwing action figures based on Capullo's artwork are slated to roll out in April and May as part of DCC's 6.75" Designer Action Figures line. Those aren't the only 6.75" scale action figures, though, with contemporary versions of Deathstorm and Bizarro coming as part of the Forever Evil line, an Arkham City Two-Face, and an Arrow Oliver Queen/Deathstroke two-pack all set to arrive in April. On the statue front, fans will be able to pick up an 8.5" Wonder Woman statue based on Pérez's iconic take on the Amazon, plus a 10" Riddler statue based on the character's Arkham City appearance. Click through to see DCC's full solicitation info and images for January.
Fans who are clamoring for a Wonder Woman movie just gained a pretty big ally in the form of Warner Bros. CEOKevin Tsujihara.
Speaking at an entertainment law conference this weekend, Tsujihara told the gathered crowd that the studio's lack of superhero movies outside of the Superman and Batman franchises was a "missed opportunity," and expressed his desire to focus on developing a Wonder Woman project, saying "We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."
October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It's the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.
But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I'm spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're wrapping the golden lasso of criticism around an array of Wonder Woman costumes!
