It's Wonder Woman Wednesday, today, I know, which is a day later than usual for Weekly Wonder Woman but can't be avoided thanks to Bank Holiday Monday. So simply put your hands over your ears, close your eyes and go "La, la, la! There are no important new comics out today!" for a few minutes and then we can carry on as normal.

Done that? Good.

So, lots happened in the fortnight I was away on holiday. We got a new Justice League poster for starters:

Still pretending Superman's not going to be in it, hey? I'm sure that tactic will pay off big time.

Wonder (Woman) Wednesday was also made official by Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, who are now promising to bring you "something new, from contests, to behind the scenes photos, maybe even never before seen clips" every #WonderWednesday.

In other news, Gadot revealed it was the music of Beyoncé that helped her land the role in the first place. 

Hmm. It feels like I'm missing something. Oh yes - Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp are leaving Wonder Woman. Rucka is leaving on a high note given the rather good readership figures the title now has, which makes a nice change from when he was given the boot more than a decade ago for some rather low readership figures.

Why's he off? Too much work, he says.

Before we get to rampant speculation, this is my decision. I just can’t maintain the pace on the title while also fulfilling my commitments to my other collaborators. It is, genuinely, as simple as that…

Liam Sharp just appears to be heading off because Rucka's off. No word about Nicola Scott, but she's going to be working with Rucka on Black Magick again, at least, which suggests she might be off, too.

Rucka lays down the timeline for the group departure:

Wonder Woman 23 sees the end of our “primary” storyline, “The Lies/The Truth,” and Wonder Woman 24 serves as something of an epilogue to that tale. Wonder Woman 25 will, I hope, set a table for who is to follow, and provide for them as much room to work and explore and grow. 

And who is to follow? Shea Fontana, who's going to be writing the first five issues at least, starting July 12. Fontana has previously written Diana for the DC Super Hero Girls comic, including a couple of graphic novels, so at least knows the character, even if the audience might have a been a tad younger.

Having worked on DC Super Hero Girls for the last few years, I have a great sense of Wondy, a teenage Wonder Woman in a high school setting, and it's an honor and an adrenaline rush to be writing her now 'all grown up'. Many of her core characteristics continue to remain routed in peace, justice and equality, but as an adult she’s seen a lot more war and tragedy, and is dealing with her world from a wiser, more experienced point of view.

Joining her on artwork will be Mirka Andolfo, who's been doing work on DC Comics: Bombshells, so again no stranger to Wonder Woman.

Right then - after the jump, a look at one of Greg Rucka's final issues of Wonder Woman, as well as the continuing adventures of the Justice League. We also find out a bit more about what Batman '66 is up to in 1977.

Wonder Woman filming

No WWW next week, since I'm away on holiday, so to tide yourself over, why don't you peruse a set of 20 high-quality stills from the movie? Most of them aren't new, but they're now better quality, at least.

This weekend's deceptively titled WonderCon also gave us a few delights, including some new clips (which you can see described here, since they aren't online) and some new merchandise. Plenty of it. Here's the Wonder Woman panel.

Also, since June 3rd is Wonder Woman day, you'll be delighted to hear that it's not all about the cash at DC, as it's giving away two comics to mark the occasion: a reprint of Wonder Woman #1 and DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Day Special Edition.

After the jump, we'll be looking at Dark Knight III #8, in which an army of Kryptonians take on the Amazons… and regret it. We'll also be looking at Titans (Annual) #1, which guest stars the whole Justice League, including Diana, although it's her revelations that are the most important…

Unite the Justice League

Apparently, there's more than one movie featuring Wonder Woman coming out this year. Who knew? As well as Wonder Woman, there's one called Justice League, too, which is directed by Zac "Dark and Gritty" Snyder.

Unveiled this week was an official site full of Photoshoppable images, as well as several posters, including one of our Diana:

Better still, she features in a new trailer for the movie…

…as do the Amazons, who appear to be fighting some parademons in somewhere dark and gritty…

…as does Amber Heard playing that Mera from Atlantis. You can rewatch the trailer to check. Treat yourself.

After the jump, though, we can talk comics. Two releases of note: Wonder Woman #19 and Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77 #9. See you in a mo.
