Fortnightly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #46, Justice League: No Justice #1

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

Last week, not only was I bit busy with work anyway, but there was literally no news or comics featuring Wonder Woman for me to review anyway, which is why there was – as predicted – no WWW/FWW. But Diana’s back this week in two titles and there’s news, too!

Comics news

Wonder Woman Annual #2 has been postponed by a week and on top of that, Wonder Woman is going to be $1 more expensive per issue as of #50. Cripes. Bet you wish there hadn’t been news after all, hey?

Merchandise news

If you’ve roughly $700 to spare and liked the nu52 Diana enough to spend that $700 on a single statue, you can pre-order this shiny thing:

New statue

Cripes.

That just leaves this week’s new releases: Wonder Woman #46, which starts off a new ‘Dark Gods’ storyline; and Justice League: No Justice #1, which starts off a new ‘Really Dark Gods’ storyline. All that after the jump.

More birthday celebrations last week (and probably work next week because of the Bank Holiday) means WWW is likely to be FWW for the next few weeks at least. Still, given that seems to work for DC, why not for WWW, too?

Not a huge amount of news this fortnight, mind: Patty Jenkins has confirmed that Wonder Woman 2 will be set in the 1980s, while Joss Whedon has defended his own unmade script for Wonder Woman:

But that’s your lot, so let’s head straight to the comics. Just the usual suspects, as far as I know, although of course that number is set to diminish very soon. So after the jump, let’s talk about Wonder Woman #45, Justice League #43, The Brave and the Bold #3 and the final issue of Trinity, #22.

Back again! Yes, that fabulous Christian/Anglo Saxon festival of Easter probably isn’t celebrated on Themyscira, but TMINE had the week off anyway. So what happened to Diana in the past fortnight? Let’s find out…

Movie news

Nothing new was revealed about Wonder Woman 2 et al, but Wonder Woman has turned out to be the most profitable superhero movie of 2017, ranking number six in the top ten films with US$252.9 million in profit. That puts it US$52.8 million above Spider-man: Homecoming and even more in front of Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2. Not bad, hey, and certainly better than, erm, Justice League.

TV news

Lynda Carter’s been up to lots of late, including an interview with the New York Times.

Comics news

DC has been celebrating Unicorn Day with the help of Wonder Woman (and the rest of the Trinity):

DC’s also been asking whether Wonder Woman or Aquaman would win in a fight. Most think Diana would come out top. Duh.

In an effort to raise funds for Puerto Rico, various comics writers and artists are working on a book, Ricanstruction, that you can now pre-order. As well as Puerto Rican superheroine La Borinqueña, our Diana’s set to appear not just on the cover (courtesy of Tony Daniel) but also in a story or two.

Merchandise news

It’s just been confirmed that in the Rebirth Universe, there’s plenty of Wonder Woman merchandise available, including T-shirts for men.

Comic reviews

Three notable appearances in the DC Universe by our Diana in the past fortnight, as well as one not so notable appearance. On the last point, she showed up in Teen Titans #22 to tell Donna Troy to know her place:

Titans #22

But after the jump, we’ll be looking at the biggies: Justice League #42, in which she’s slightly dead; Trinity #21, in which she fights a lot; and Wonder Woman #44, in which she hits Darkseid for a bit.

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.

Movie news

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.

Merchandising news

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.

Comics news

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.

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 Batman & the Justice League Manga Vol. 1.

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print.

Comic reviews

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.

Movie news

Justice League is out on DVD/Blu-Ray/4K this week. I’ve reviewed that elsewhere, and since there are only a few extras and nothing much by way of extra footage with the release, I won’t bother saying much more than that.

The other bit of news is that Kristen Wiig has now been confirmed as playing Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. But we talked about that a bit last week, so I won’t bother saying much more than that.

TV news

The best known of the TV Wonder Women – go on readers, name all the others… now! – Lynda Carter is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 3rd. That’ll be at 6562 Hollywood Blvd, if you plan on going down there to watch or even just see the star once it’s in place. Guest speakers are Patty Jenkins (you know who she is) and Les Moonves. Moonves (you probably don’t know who he is) is the current head of CBS, which was the network that picked up the show in the 70s after ABC cancelled it – maybe he can say something about the sexual harassment that was going on on-set at the time

Comic reviews

Only a couple of appearances by our Diana this week. In Wonder Woman #42, Diana faces Grail again and her brother shows up with some nice new duds. Meanwhile, in Trinity #19, the Trinity have a great big battle and return to the outside world, ready for a new quest.

Yawn. Why am I yawning? Oh yes – James Robinson wrote them both.
