Time for our weekly round-up of things Wonder Womany in the DC Universe. There’s not been a WW-centric title out of late, but she has popped up in a few, you’ll be gratified to hear – specifically, Superman #25, in which Lois Lane bursts in on a superdate; Superman Unchained #5, in which WW is off saving the world and Superman gets to see the advantages of dating a goddess rather than a mortal; and Smallville: Harbinger #1, which sees Diana in her new Smallville-universe job at the DEO, trying to recruit none other than John Constantine as a magic consultant – with the help of Zatanna.

Also this week, we’ll be having a look at the conclusion to Smallville’s ‘Olympus’ arc, as well as a brief glance at Forever Evil #2 and Justice League of America #9. See you after the jump.

While DC hasn’t really been doing that great with movie versions of its comic strips of late, at least in comparison to Marvel (yes, Man of Steel, and the Batman trilogy, but Green Lantern as well and WHERE’S WONDER WOMAN?), it’s had far more success in the past couple of decades with animated shows like Justice League. Playing the voice of Superman since the mid-90s is Tim Daly, who seems to be filling in a lot of the blanks that DC’s been leaving through his web series The Daly Show, which stars him and his son Scott.
Last year, if you recall, he gave us a Justice League team up involving himself, Nathan Fillion (Green Lantern) and Michael Rosenbaum (The Flash and Lex Luthor in Smallville). Now, he’s got Kevin Gilroy – the voice of Batman for many – to turn up to do Batman v Superman a couple of years early. You may recognise some of the lines from somewhere…
As if that weren't enough, he's also given us this year the ultimate Superman team-up: himself, Brandon Routh and Dean Cain, all in one place. Almost. I should also point out Andrea Romano, the casting director for DC's animated output, cameos at the end…
