Quite a quiet week again for Diana in comics last week, although a bit busier than a fortnight ago, it's true. However, it's all go in the real world, thanks to her 75th birthday looming on the horizon. She's got a shiny new logo to celebrate:

She's got a shiny new costume (now appearing in Rebirth):

With matching Barbie:

There's even a 75th birthday action figure, complete with invisible jet.

Although don't go expecting the latter to appear in next year's movie.

But after the jump, we'll be looking at the flashback-tastic Justice League #51 and punch-tastic Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year 5 #26, as well as a Trinity-tastic night-time meeting in Superman: Rebirth #1. Oh, by the way, Donna Troy has a new costume this month, too, over in Teen Titans: Rebirth #1

Looks a bit familiar, doesn't it?

Weekly Wonder Woman: DC Rebirth #1, Justice League #50, Superman #52, The Legend of Wonder Woman #27, & Justice League v Teen Titans

It's here, everyone. Finally, it's here - Rebirth, the DC Universe's equivalent of that Old Spice ad:

That thing that's canon? You'll love this - it'll still canon. That thing you used to love that was canon but wasn't in the nu52? You'll love this - it's now canon again. That thing you loved but which was never canon and you never thought would be? You'll love this - that's now canon.

But we've a bit of overlap between the nu52/DCYou and Rebirth universes still to deal with, and so in the past fortnight, DC has given us a few final nu52 issues to round off some storylines, some of which affect our Diana. So after the jump, as well as looking at DC Rebirth #1, we'll see how the Darkseid War ends in Justice League #50 and we'll be seeing what happens to the nu52 Superman in Superman #52.

Meanwhile, alternative universe Wonder Woman origin story, The Legend of Wonder Woman, also comes to a conclusion of sorts in #27 and just for a bit of spice in our lives, I'll be looking at a movie that got released in the UK last week - Justice League vs Teen Titans

I'm on a horse.

Weekly Wonder Woman: May's titles and movie news

Posted on May 23, 2016 | comments | Bookmark and Share

Yes, I know - why call it Weekly Wonder Woman when the last one was more than a month ago and I'm not going to doing one next week, either, since I'm on holiday? Sigh. All I can do is apologise and confess that since I'm doing volunteer work on Fridays, most of my Friday work ends up on Monday instead, and I therefore usually have to choose on Monday between writing about tele (this 'ere blog's raison d'être) and WWW, which can take a good couple of hours to do (even if it doesn't look like it). Guess which one wins.

However, today, I have the time to do both. Yay! Plus Rebirth is on the way. DC's partial reboot of its universe, it's best summarised as "Hey fanboys? Yes, you guys who all buggered off when the nu52 started and who were the ones who actually bought comics? Want to have storylines exactly like they used to be 10 years ago? Want old Superman and Batman back? Well here you go!”

That means, following issue #52 of a whole range of titles, big changes will be afoot, numbering will return to issue #1, nu52 Superman will disappear/die (although maybe not) to be replaced by the old one who was married to Lois Lane and has a kid, and all manner of other things will happen. So I'd better do something to mark the change, hadn't I?

We've already seen a little of what Rebirth means for our Diana, although here's the full schedule:

Rebirth Checklist

Paulo Siqueira is also no longer illustrating Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1.

But after the jump, we'll see how the nu52 has effectively ended for our Diana when we look at Wonder Woman #51-52, as well as for Superman as we take a gander at Superman-Wonder Woman #28-29, Batman-Superman #32 and Action Comics #52. Finishing things up, the Darkseid War is nearly ending over in Justice League #49 (that's got to make up some ground, hasn't it…? Oh, it's going to end on Wednesday with issue #50 instead of #52. Do you reckon they planned it that way?), while Wonder Woman has to deal with her sister, Cassandra, and niece Wonder Girl, over in Teen Titans #19.

Meanwhile, the action hasn't been stopping for various Elseworlds Wonder Women. Wondy has to deal with Superman dying (again) in Dark Knight III #4continues her WW2 fight in Norway against the Titan in the acclaimed The Legend of Wonder Woman #24-26 (which has recently been granted a second volume)and is having her sexy origin retold yet again in the rather massive Wonder Woman - Earth One

All that after the jump. But for those of you with an interest in Movie Wonder Woman, here's some video of Movie Themyscira:

Here's a picture of Connie Nielsen as Diana's Movie mum, Hippolyta.

And here's a picture from the final day of filming:

Yes, I've been saving this all up. Soz.
