Wonder Woman's Movie: What We Know So Far
Every time we talk about Zack Snyderís Man of Steel 2 on CinemaBlend, we unofficially refer to it as Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Which is accurate, but it leaves out a significant component: When will Wonder Woman get her own movie?
Infamous Amazonian Wonder Woman will be introduced in Snyderís movie when it reaches theaters on May 6, 2016. Itís unclear at the moment, however, how screenwriters Snyder, David S. Goyer and Chris Terrio (Argo) plan to use Princess Diana of Themyscira in this film. Will she merely cameo, hinting at the promise of stories to come? Will she be an integral part of the narrative, assisting Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) as they contend with the evil schemes of the already announced Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg)? And what does the future hold for Wonder Woman at Warner Bros.?
Some of those questions can be answered. Others await confirmation. For now, letís dig into everything we know about Wonder Womanís cinematic future, as Warner and DC Comics try to get their collective act in gear and keep pace with Marvelís signature franchise, The Avengers.
The Comic-Con AppearanceGal Gadot took the stage in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con in July, standing next to co-stars Ben Affleck (Batman) and Henry Cavill (Superman)... but silent. Fans couldn't ask the trio questions. They just marveled (no pun intended) at the first image of Gadot in her Wonder Woman duds -- pictured above. In doing so, Zack Snyder also introduced the concept of the #DCTrinity -- hopefully emphasizing that Wonder Woman will be just as very important to the forming Justice League universe.
