Every week (or fortnight), Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine
WWW had to take a leave of absence last week, since I was celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday. Diana would have approved I’m sure, just as she’ll approve of the fact that there’ll be no WWW next week either, since we’re taking my mother-in-law on holiday. Sorry about that.
Even worse, I don’t have that much time today, either, so this is going to be a bit more whistle-stop than usual. It’ll be a comprehensive whistle-stop tour of all the news and comics, but a whistle-stop one nevertheless.
Today’s big news is that Narcos‘ Pedro Pascal has joined Wonder Woman 2. There’s no word on whom he’ll be playing, but given Cheetah is involved, is it possible he might end up playing Sebastian Ballesteros?
Also announced is a new DCEU movie focused on the New Gods. Ava DuVernay (Wrinkle in Time) is signed up to direct that, making her the first woman of colour to helm a $100m+ live-action movie. Hopefully the effects will be better than those used for Steppenwolf in Justice League. Will our Diana be in it? We’ll have to wait and see.
Otherwise, it’s just been Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds teasing each other on Twitter about who owns the Wonder Woman stance, and Gadot wishing Diana a happy birthday.
Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in the US has just unveiled a ‘drop tower’ ride that features virtual reality and some DC superheroes, including Wonder Woman.
Following the end of Dark Nights: Metal, which was previously considered a comic book series that not even the merciful release of death would stop, Justice League is getting relaunched again. Wonder Woman’s still in it, you’ll be glad to hear, but she’s also going to be heading up Justice League Dark.
There’s multi-tasking for you.
Lastly, DC is going to be reprinting in English some manga titles involving our Diana as .
And that’s all the news that’s fit to print.
Not so much proper reviews, as me going through each issue with a highlighter pen for some interesting or relevant moments, but what ya gonna do? Although arguably that’s all I really do anyway.
Still, after the jump, Diana dies in a fight with Black Panther Justice League #41, haggles with some gods in The Brave and the Bold #2, picks unnecessary fights in Wonder Woman #43, picks a necessary fight in Damage #3 and chops up a giant metal robot Egyptian god of mummification in Trinity #20.
