Sooner or later, if Warner honestly wants to get a Justice League movie up and running, we’re going to have to see Wonder Woman in action on the big screen. The comic book hero has had numerous small-screen incarnations, but hasn’t yet enjoyed the silver screen success of her JLA colleagues Batman and Superman (who has a movie heading to theaters in June). So if Warner were to move forward with a Wonder Woman movie, might it look something like this?
This teaser trailer, shared by Latino-Review, was conceived and shot by one-time stunt coordinator Jesse V. Johnson (Planet of the Apes, Lincoln) who reportedly recruited cinematographer friend HC Van Urfalian, a striking brunette actress named Nina Bergman, and character actor Peter Stormare (!!) to record a reel of Wonder Woman in action. The director told the site:
They even recruited Robert Sebree to come up with a teaser poster:
Now, all of this is pie-in-the-sky dreaming, as Warner has made no moves to stage a feature-length Wonder Woman movie. And I’m not sure that this reel is going to get them excited about possibly doing one. Wonder Woman taking on Nazis? Isn’t this just Captain America, but with Wonder Woman in Steve Rogers’ place? Did the Amazonia princess ever tackle Adolf Hitler and his forces of evil? Hopefully an actual Wonder Woman movie dives deeper into her mythology and doesn’t just have her fighting obvious foes in recognizable conflicts, because out-of-the-box films like Thor and The Avengers have shown that comic-book fans deserve better.
