Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League #31, Trinity #14 and Wonder Woman/Conan #2

Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including where she’s in panto this year

Oscar season is rolling around, which is why we’re suddenly getting some good films in the cinema again. To remind Oscar voters of a certain summer blockbuster, Warner Bros has set up a Wonder Woman Oscars page. In with a chance? Well, you never know (particularly on some of the technical awards).

Meanwhile, the Justice League is apparently doing panto in Clacton on Sea this year, judging by this new poster. I wonder if Barry from EastEnders will be in it, too?

No Superman, you notice. NO ONE IS BEING FOOLED WARNER BROS.

However, all the focus is on the release of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

Unfortunately, it’s not going down well with William Marston’s granddaughter.

Oh well.

Comics news

We’re coming up to a momentous numbering moment: the 700th issue of Wonder Woman. Although we’re not doing a #600 and reverting to the serial numbering system, we are at least getting a celebratory cover from Tony Daniel:

Comic reviews

After the jump, let’s talk about this week’s Diana-featuring comics: Justice League #31, Trinity #14 and Wonder Woman/Conan #2.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
Film

Ever wondered what a Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross version of the Halloween theme would be like? Wonder no more

The theme to Halloween by John Carpenter is one of the most iconic movie themes out there. It’s simple and repetitive, but then so’s John Williams’ Jaws, so let’s be too judgey. Plus Carpenter makes it work, just as he does with all his other soundtracks.

That doesn’t mean other people can’t take a different slant on it. Take Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who have produced some truly great tunes and soundtracks of their own. Ross even made me believe Outcast might be better than it actually was, simply through his soundtrack. Reznor, of course, is Nine Inch Nails.

And now they’ve done their own version of the theme, just in time for Halloween. How thought

Justice League Trailer on Sunday

<NARRATOR: And the trailer did arrive on Sunday. With some of its friends>

First we got the teaser for the trailer.

Then we got the trailer.

And an international promo.

And a TV spot.

And an exclusive first look.

Still, at least Diana gets to hit things and smile a lot, hey?

Also getting a trailer, albeit one more recognisably of the comic book milieu, was Professor Marston & The Wonder Women.

Meanwhile, Gal Gadot was on Saturday Night Live, and you can see the highlights over here. Or just this highly relevant and important highlight:

And that, oddly enough, was all the news that’s fit to print. Maybe the Lasso of Truth needs recharging.

After the jump, we look at Wonder Woman #32, in which our Diana goes on a quest, albeit a very, very short one, and we solve last week’s mystery about her new hat.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League #30

Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including Lynda Carter’s latest fight

The excitement about Wonder Woman still isn’t dying down, you know. It’s now only $1m behind Spider-Man at the box office – if it beats that, it’ll officially be the highest grossing superhero origins movie ever. Wowzers.

Last week, James Cameron decided to double-down on his anti-Wonder Woman comments. Now Lynda Carter has waded in on Facebook:

To James Cameron -STOP dissing WW: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–because I have embodied this character for more than 40 years. So–STOP IT.

You might want to back off now, Jimmy.

Meanwhile, the movie is having its own influence on TV. Gal Gadot is going to be hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend.

And Chicago Fire‘s writers have admitted to doing a female-centric episode of the show after having seen the movie.

What was the impetus for that for Dawson specifically?

Whenever you can throw a firefighter off duty without their equipment, without their radios into one of these situations and see how they would react in that pressure cooker, she’s a natural for it. It was her turn. After I saw Wonder Woman, I was like, “Dawson’s our Wonder Woman! She needs to have an episode!” That was the driving force there.

All the same, attention is now shifting towards Justice League, which is due out next month. A new trailer is due on Sunday and to promote that, there’s a range of new character posters out, including one of our Diana:

Empire magazine has a Justice League front cover drawn by none other than Jason Fabok:

The observant will notice that along with a lot of other Justice League promotion material, Wonder Woman is at the front – yep, DC knows what side its bread is buttered on now.

There’s also a behind the scenes promo video:

As well as a book of concept art coming out from Titan:

Merchandise news

Nothing much else Diana-y that I spotted, but there is a Funko set with an Aquaman theme coming out that has a teaser that features Funko Diana.

But that’s about it. After the jump, we’ll have a look at the one title to feature Diana this week: Justice League #30. In it we discover that Diana isn’t the worst mum in the world after all. So that’s nice.

But before you go, what’s going on here in the background of DC’s Twitter account page. Did Diana not understand the rules of the Pretty Woman re-enactment society? Or can we hazard a guess at what Diana inherits from Hercules in the next issue of Wonder Woman?

Diana wears a lion
