Not long now! Just one week to go until the movie is released, so understandably, all the stops are being pulled out for what is apparently the most hotly anticipated movie of the summer. In fact, there's just so much news, I'm going to wait until after the jump or else the entire home page is going to be nothing but Wonder Woman. Which ain't a bad thing, I guess, but might not annoy the neighbours.

As well as this week's news, you can look forward to reading in just a click and a few paragraphs' time about the week's comics featuring Diana: Justice League (Rebirth) #21, Justice League/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4, Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman #4 and Trinity #9. 

See you in a mo…

With just a couple of weeks until the movie is released, it's full steam ahead for the Wonder Woman tie-ins and advertising. There's a new banner poster (above) that also ties in with the Justice League movie coming later this year. Times Square in New York has also been pretty comprehensively taken over by Wonder Woman billboards:

In terms of merchandise, there's a new HeroClix set, a new flavour of ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery, a Dr Pepper tie-in, and a special Her Universe fashion line.

To coincide with Mother's Day last Sunday in the US, some new images and featurettes were released. As June 3 is also 'Wonder Woman day', a whole bunch of celebrations have been announced as well, including a whole week of activities leading up to that.

Since China's obviously a big market for movies these days, don't be surprised that there's some Chinese-specific advertising, including a new anime-style poster and a trailer that contains a big hint about… something.

Meanwhile, back in the world of comics, it's business as usual. In our now-traditional DC rewrite of continuity, Dan Jurgens has made it clear that all those bits in the nu52 where Superman and Wonder Woman were a couple - you know, like Superman/Wonder Woman - have been erased from the Rebirth universe and never happened. Even the bits that everyone in the Rebirth universe still remembered happening just a few issues ago. Like Superman/Wonder Woman.

As for actual comics you could read, two titles from last week to look at that featured our Diana: the concluding (?) issue of Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77 and Wonder Woman #22, in which Diana goes on a date with Veronica Cale. For money. More on that after the jump.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League #20

A little earlier than normal because I have more tele to write about this week and less time to do it today than I'd like, it's Weekly Wonder Woman - your exciting weekly round-up of everything Wonder Womanish. You probably could have guessed that.

Unsurprisingly, things are hotting up even more in the world of movie promotion, with a proper clip released…

…and a fourth, final trailer - Rise of the Warrior:

Apparently, it was Mother's Day somewhere, since there was a special Mother's Day message from Gal Gadot and Chris Pine:

Less positively, some bright spark at Warners Bros' PR department thought it would be a cracking idea to have a movie tie-in with… the thinkThin diet. That hasn't gone down well at all.

In the world of comics, meanwhile, The Wonder Woman 100 Project is trying to raise money by creating 100 different covers for the Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary special, getting artists including Cliff Chiang and Alan Hughes to donate their work. You can bit for them if you want later this month, but take a gander at them now to see what your money will be going on.

As for comic book appearances by our Diana, there were surprisingly few. Over in Batman #22, the Flash and Batman have gone back in time to Flashpoint (you know, that little event a few years ago that resulted in the nu52) where naturally they find Flashpoint Wonder Woman and her army of Amazons fighting against Aquaman and the Atlanteans:

Meanwhile, over in Justice League #20, it's the start of a new storyline, 'Endless', which has lots of time loops, apparently caused by the Flash's Speed Force interacting badly with a zero-point energy module nicked from Stargate: Atlantis made by some nice scientist. So it's up to Diana and the League to stop that from happening. Except, timey-wimey - maybe trying to stop it is what caused it?

Maybe we caused it?

Oops. But that's your lot for this week.

Disclaimer: Owing to the small fortune it would take to buy every single DC comic each week, this is not a guaranteed rundown of all the comics that feature Wonder Woman. If you know of any I’ve missed, email me or leave a comment below and I’ll cover them the following week
