Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #41, Doom Patrol-JLA #1

Every week, Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine

Movie news

The talk of the town this week is that Wonder Woman 2‘s main villain is likely to be Cheetah. Emma Stone has apparently already turned down the role, but Kristen Wiig is currently top choice. No news on whether she’ll have to do an English accent if she gets the part.

Comic news

Somewhere on the horizon there’s the horrific prospect of a sequel to Metal called No Justice.

Out of the ashes of Dark Nights: Metal, new Justice League and Teen Titans teams are born from the events of Scott Snyder’s Justice League: No Justice!

The cataclysmic events of Dark Nights: Metal has seen the universe’s balance of power snap. Brainiac arrives on Earth with a dire warning for the Justice League: there’s a threat coming to destroy Earth, one that the heroes are ill-equipped to handle. But the combined forces of Justice League, the Justice League of America, the Titans, Teen Titans and… the villains of the DCU certainly don’t think so. Splitting into different squads, including Batman, Lobo, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Deathstroke, Superman, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Robin and more, these new Leagues must stop one of their gravest threats ever.

Written by Scott Snyder, Joshua Williamson (The Flash) and James Tynion IV (Detective Comics) with sublime art by Francis Manapul (Trinity)

Sounds dreadful.

Comic reviews

I realise I probably missed the second issue of that Titans ‘trial of Donna Troy‘ storyline a couple of weeks ago. I don’t think I’ve missed much, though. So I’ll just focus on yesterday’s releases. Wonder Woman #41 continues James Robinson’s ambition to get every foe Wonder Woman has ever faced in her 75+ year history into the Rebirth universe, largely by talking about them a lot. Meanwhile, Diana gets insulted by a milkman a lot, as Milk Wars continues in Doom Patrol-Justice League of America #1.

Both of those after the jump.

Ordeal by Innocence

TV Preview: Ordeal By Innocence + Q&A with Sandra Goldbacher, Sarah Phelps, Morven Christie, Gaynor Holmes and James Prichard

Thursday, 22 March 2018 – 6:30pm
Cineworld Renfrew Street, Glasgow

Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll, a young delinquent, is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. Eighteen months later, Dr Arthur Calgary, a scientist, walks onto the velvety lawns of Sunny Point claiming to have just returned from an expedition to the Arctic. Even more extraordinary is his claim to hold the alibi that can prove Jack’s innocence.

But Jack died in prison before the case could come to trial, and the Argyll family is reluctant to dig up the secrets of the past. Rachel’s widower Leo is about to remarry his secretary Gwenda and none of Rachel’s other adopted children Mary, Mickey, Tina or Hester, nor longstanding housekeeper Kirsten, is willing to reopen that most horrendous chapter of their lives.

However, the shattering implications of Calgary’s story are too big to avoid; if he is telling the truth then the wrong person was arrested for Rachel’s murder. And if Jack was not the killer, then it must have been somebody else at Sunny Point.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Sandra Goldbacher, writer Sarah Phelps, actor Morven Christie, BBC Scotland Commissioner Gaynor Holmes and James Prichard, Chairman & CEO Agatha Christie Ltd. Networking drinks will follow the Q&A.
