Stephen Amell: American Ninja Warrior

Although he doesn’t do the ‘salmon ladder’ every episode any more, Arrow‘s Stephen Amell still quite fit and does a lot of his own stunts. So much so, he’s wanted to take part in American Ninja Warrior for ages.

Well, he’s finally getting his chance on the US version of Red Nose Day, and it seems like he’s actually quite good at it…

With just a couple of weeks until the movie is released, it’s full steam ahead for the Wonder Woman tie-ins and advertising. There’s a new banner poster (above) that also ties in with the Justice League movie coming later this year. Times Square in New York has also been pretty comprehensively taken over by Wonder Woman billboards:

In terms of merchandise, there’s a new HeroClix set, a new flavour of ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery, a Dr Pepper tie-in, and a special Her Universe fashion line.

To coincide with Mother’s Day last Sunday in the US, some new images and featurettes were released. As June 3 is also ‘Wonder Woman day’, a whole bunch of celebrations have been announced as well, including a whole week of activities leading up to that.

Since China’s obviously a big market for movies these days, don’t be surprised that there’s some Chinese-specific advertising, including a new anime-style poster and a trailer that contains a big hint about… something.

Meanwhile, back in the world of comics, it’s business as usual. In our now-traditional DC rewrite of continuity, Dan Jurgens has made it clear that all those bits in the nu52 where Superman and Wonder Woman were a couple – you know, like Superman/Wonder Woman – have been erased from the Rebirth universe and never happened. Even the bits that everyone in the Rebirth universe still remembered happening just a few issues ago. Like Superman/Wonder Woman.

As for actual comics you could read, two titles from last week to look at that featured our Diana: the concluding (?) issue of Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 and Wonder Woman #22, in which Diana goes on a date with Veronica Cale. For money. More on that after the jump.
