Weekly Wonder Woman: The Legend of Wonder Woman #2, DC Bombshells #18

Posted on November 23, 2015 | comments | Bookmark and Share

As with last week, most excitement for our Amazon Queen stemmed from movie news. But fashion got a look in, too, funnily enough.

We started by getting our first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman, courtesy of Gadot herself.

The observant will note the presence of Big Ben in the background. Whether that's simply because that's where Wonder Woman will be fighting a wartime menace (Ares, the Nazis, AN Other baddie) or because this is the incorporation of the nu52 orthodoxy that Diana lives in London in modern times, I can't say - I suspect we'll have to wait until the movie is released.

We also got a press release, too.

Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman feature film, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will make her big screen debut this spring in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature.

The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).

The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.

Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).

Principal photography will take place on location in the UK, France and Italy.

Set to open in 2017, the Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

How wonderful.

Of course, this isn't the first effort to get Wonder Woman onto the big screen, although it's certainly the most successful. One previous effort was George Miller's Justice League: Mortal, which was to feature Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. And it's been revealed this week that she would have looked like this:

Of course, there was also an earlier attempt by one Mr Joss Whedon to develop a Wonder Woman movie. That got as far as a script and if you happen to be in Manhattan Beach, California, on December 5, you can watch the whole thing performed in costume. Maybe.

And if all that weren't enough, Gwyneth Paltrow and Valentino are teaming up to develop their own Wonder Woman clothing line

But back in the comic book world, last week, things were looking a little better for our Wondy with two appearances, which we'll be perusing after the jump: DC Bombshells #18 and The Legend of Wonder Woman #2

DC Bombshells #14

The observant among you will have noticed that there was no Weekly Wonder Woman last week. That wasn't because our Wondy wasn't in any comics - quite the contrary, in fact - but simply because of the time I had available, I had to choose between WWW and WHYBW, and tele won. Sorry, Di.

I didn't get any complaint letters, though. I don't know why. I'm assuming it's because you were too busy crying to be able to put fingers to keyboard.

Don't worry, though. Brush those tears away. WWW is back. And given that there was only one new issue with Diana in last week, it's not exactly a Herculean task to do two weeks in one go.

So after the jump, we'll be looking at the latest issues of the Big Four: Wonder Woman, Superman-Wonder Woman, Justice League and Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman. Only one of them has a bad joke from an old episode of Doctor Who in it.

Still no Diana in DC Bombshells again, though. This is tantamount to false advertising, now.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Sensation Comics #49, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four #24

Last week, Diana, Queen of the Amazons, made a lot of appearances on the covers of comics, but didn't actually show up inside many of them. She was on the cover of Justice League of America #4, fighting some alien priests with Aquaman.

But did she turn up inside to fight some alien priests with Aquaman? Not at all. And as for Aquaman, he was watching tele with Mera instead.

Talk about misadvertising. 

Meanwhile, over on the cover of DC Bombshells, Diana was ready for action with her lightning-equipped, Volume 3, Gail Simone bracelets.

Was she inside using them? Nope. It was just Batwoman and Italian Catwoman flirting with each other in 1940s Berlin at a party of demon-worshipping Nazis. Alternative universe Dullsville that.

Lois and Clark #1

For a bit of contrast, while she wasn't on the cover of the first issue of limited series nu52/alternative reality Convergence spectacular Superman: Lois & Clark, she was certainly inside. Unfortunately, it was part of yet another flashback to that first Justice League storyline involving Darkseid, so that author Dan Jurgens could make the point that the nu52 universe was a bit gloomy compared to the pre-Flashpoint one.

Behind you! 

Reasurringly, despite those mere glimpses, we had a couple of proper appearances, too. The first was in the final return of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, which has been cancelled due to a bit of (alleged) internal politics at DC. In its place is coming a prequel series, The Legend of Wonder Woman, starting in January. Prequel to what, you might ask? Well, it's definitely a young woman on Themyscira and the story of how she ended up coming to Man's World. But is it a prequel to the nu52/DCYou Wonder Woman's arrival or is it a prequel to Batman V Superman, due out in March?

Dunno, but I'm sure time will tell.

Until then, we do have a few more Sensation Comics to enjoy. The first sees the return of an old enemy. Can you guess who?

It's Cheetah. It's always Cheetah. What's the matter with you? How was that not your first guess?

Anyway, in this alternative reality, maybe Cheetah isn't as bad as everyone thought. You can find out more about that after the jump.

Also after the jump is the final installment of Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Four. Last issue, Zeus was facing off against Highfather in a battle for supremacy among gods for planet Earth. Can you imagine how exciting it's all going to be and how central Diana will be to the plot?

Well, no. They've only gone and Twilighted us.
