Weekly Wonder Woman

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #21, Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 #11

Well. Just as geeks and geekettes were starting to worry that Warner Bros had abandoned Diana and weren’t going to promote Wonder Woman, everything’s gone and changed.

For starters, we can all start buying tickets for the movie now. If you’re in the UK, there’s a web site giving you the cinemas nearest you that will be showing the movie. Have you booked your tickets yet? Mine are IMAX 3D…

Meanwhile, if you’re in the US and you have an awful lot of spending money, the Regal movie chain is currently offering the anodised steel ‘Wonder Woman Ultimate Ticket‘. Costing a mere $100, it enables you to watch the movie once a day, every day, during the movie’s initial release, in any format you want (even IMAX 3D). It’s also personalised with your name so you can keep it.

But on top of that, there’s been a new flurry of marketing activity. Nascar driver Danica Patrick will be driving a Wonder Woman car for two races this season. Four new stills and behind-the-scenes photos have been released, too. 

However, what we’re all really after are not just the shiny new poster for the movie…

…but its four new TV trailers that Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and a little TV show called Gotham have recently provided us. There’s some old footage and some new footage, too, but notably one of them is called ‘Goddess’ – the nu52’s not as dead as everyone thought after all, it seems…

Meanwhile, if you’ve not been in Athens praising Aphrodite and the rest of the gods now that Hellenismos is once again an official religion of Greece, you’ll have been off reading some comics, won’t you? This week (La, la, la – I can’t hear you! There have been no new comics released today!), you might have perused either Wonder Woman #21 or Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 #11, so let’s talk about them after the jump.

Netflix’s Marvel’s The Defenders are in action at last

We’ve been teased to death so far, but finally we have an actual, proper trailer for Netflix’s Marvel’s The Defenders, the show that unites Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist at last. Not quite as exciting as seeing all of The Avengers together, but this is actually pretty exciting and funny stuff. And not just because Sigourney Weaver is the Big Bad of the piece. How’s about that hallway fight scene?
