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?

Diana and the Justice League try to stop the problem

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
