Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including how much Patty Jenkins is getting paid to direct Wonder Woman 2
Another week’s gone by. Can you believe it? I hope you’ve all been off helping the sick and needy, studying for your third masters degree or doing something equally worthy. Because I’ve been surfing the Internet, watching tele and reading comics, so someone somewhere had better be doing something worthwhile, for all our sakes.
Here’s what I learned.
The big news is that Patty Jenkins has been hired to direct Wonder Woman 2 and is getting paid a big chunk of cash to do it – at (roughly) $8m, which is eight times what she got for Wonder Woman, she’s now officially the highest paid female director ever.
She’s also co-writing the sequel and although the plot is tightly under wraps (maybe the Cold War, maybe with the Invisible Jet), all we can say for sure is that she’s going to be co-writing it with Geoff Johns (again) and now Dave Callahan. Callahan’s best known for writing The Expendables, but he was also working with Jenkins on an adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s Jackpot before the big chunk of cash arrived. I’m guessing that’s on hold for a while now.
Meanwhile, publicity for the release of Wonder Woman on Blu-Ray continues apace, with more clips from the extras. Top of these again is another Etta Candy video, this time about Steve Trevor:
But there’s also a clip about the photograph linking Wonder Woman with Batman v Superman:
Of course, Blu-Ray isn’t the only way to watch Wonder Woman and in the US, you can watch it on DirecTV Cinema. Rather nicely, they’ve put out an ad for it that’s voiced by none other than Susan Eisenberg – the voice of Wonder Woman for an entire generation who grew up on the Justice League cartoons:
That’s about it though, so after the jump, we’ll be looking at the only comic of note to feature Diana this week: Wonder Woman #30. TTFN!
