Or maybe it's something more. If Warner Bros. is serious about establishing their own superhero universe, they'll have to have a lynchpin, and it need not be one character. Batman and Superman are clearly the most visible heroes in DC's cinematic world thus far, but in the comics they hold down the foundations of the superhero world alongside Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman's new costume was unveiled at Comic Con today, and the fans went nuts. After the initial reaction, however, there's bound to be a lot of people wondering what happened to their favorite hero's color scheme of red, blue, and gold? Read on for an interesting theory that might answer your questions.
Our very own Eric was hunkered down in Hall H to witness the exclusive footage. Surprisingly, Warner Bros. led off their anticipated panel with Batman v. Superman instead of making fans wait. As the footage happened, Eric reported.
In the world of comic book movies, there is perhaps no bigger event in the world than San Diego Comic-Con. Every year, the major studios arrive in the coastal Southern California city to present previews of their biggest genre and fan-driven projects – and perhaps the most anticipated ones are the big blockbuster superhero films coming out over the next few years.
Zack Snyder claims that he hasn’t films any scenes with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman yet. The director went so far as to say “She’s working out and getting buffed and ripped.” But she hasn’t filmed any scenes yet, according to the director.
Just like we have with many of the other major blockbusters set to come out over the next few years, we have researched and gathered as much information about the development of the Justice League movie as we could possibly find to try and put together a picture of what we can expect from the superhero team up movie.
DC Comics has long had distinct advantage over Marvel where big screen adaptations are concerned. While the latter sold off the movie rights to many of its most popular characters years ago – including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four – the former made a partnership with Warner Bros. pictures years ago that kept all of the company’s characters under one roof. Only now, however, does it appear that DC is finally taking advantage of this fact.
All in all, a total of six new projects were "revealed" to be following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, and the list contained weird surprise after weird surprise. Three movies a year coming for two straight years. No new Batman movie on the horizon. Shazam and Wonder Woman getting solo movies in the immediate future. Man of Steel 2 not happening until 2018.
Among the announced films, we can guess that Justice League and Man Of Steel 2 are accounted for, likely films directed by Zack Snyder. With Sandman probably directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, that leaves Shazam, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern & The Flash without a director.
With DC Comics launching a new sneak attack regarding their plans to start their own cinematic universe, perhaps now's a good time to learn about just what their putting together.
Meanwhile, the DC properties languish as Warner Bros. figures out what to do with their franchises. But if rumors are correct, this Comic Con, DC and the WB are stepping out in a big way with a massive superhero roster, and a full schedule for the next few years that totally trumps Marvel's plans.
This could be a big reveal for the movie. It could also be a new exhibit for the Warner Bros studio tour. The latter seems likely, but this Twitter feed certainly has Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice fans perched by their computers, waiting for the big reveal. What will it be?
That's a major gamble for the studio, so the next few months will be spent very carefully selecting the roster for this superteam. The worst possible scenario is that these characters are too familiar, too generic, and ultimately bleed into each other. DC's got a long bench, but there's a massive fall-off from Superman and Batman to the next tier of heroes.
When will we finally get a Wonder Woman movie? The infamous Amazonian will be introduced in Snyder’s movie when it reaches theaters on May 6, 2016.
The contract that Gadot signed is half the length of the ones most stars get over at Marvel Studios - where stars are locked in with six-picture deals - and the reason for this is because Warners is still unsure about how audiences will react to the portrayal.
