ZeroCorpse: Okay, so I watched the trailer. My comments:

1. Ugh. Nazis. I hate these guys. No, really, can we avoid turning her into Captain America? That's some Silver Age crap I don't want to see. Spare us.

2. At least she seems a little physically fit, and I give credit for that, but she's not really very sturdy-looking.

3. She fights like a WWE character. Why is it that ALL female action heroes in movies have to do that lame-ass lucha stuff where they jump up and wrap their legs around a guy's head and pull him to the ground? The fighting was AWFUL, and I don't want to see Wonder Woman doing that stuff. It's lame.

4. Hello? This woman can fly at  half the speed of light. She doesn't need to take down planes with a gun. She can fly up there and rip the damned plane in half.

5. Yes, I said "rip the damned plane in half". She's one of the strongest characters in the DC universe (and THE strongest female character). She's up there with Superman. She can rip a plane in half.

6. How about some superhuman villains and some use of super powers? All I'm seeing here is the TV Wonder Woman updated a little bit. Do some damned research on the character-- THE CHARACTER-- and not the old TV show before you make a fake movie trailer. IMPRESS PEOPLE, don't give them the same shiat over and over again.

7. Honestly... NAZIS?!?!  What the f♥ck? Diana would walk right through a bunch of guys with guns.


Final Verdict: A decently-made by-the-numbers trailer put together by someone who knows jack-shiat about Wonder Woman. He might as well have made her Aeon Flux or Nikita, for all the "super" they displayed in that thing.  Wonder Woman is not Alice from the Resident Evil movies. She's SUPERMAN with tits, resistance to magic, and a meaner attitude.


You would never believe how much harder it is to actually create something as opposed to just spending way too much time ripping them apart.

Until you let Gail Simone reboot her from scratch, DC; you're not serious about Wonder Woman.

Very well done
Rarely is it shown in any media just how formidable a hand to hand combatant she is
She's always portrayed as a slugger like Superman. The big right cross, or uppercut

I know Wonder Woman doesn't have a lot of fans on Fark, but I like her. Always have.

And I encourage my nieces to like her. I buy them T-shirts and stuff with her on them.

If they gotta have a pop culture hero, I'd rather they have a strong, invincible, fearless, beautiful independent woman as that hero.

I thought that kind of sucked but Wonder Woman did fight Nazis - it's pretty much the first thing she ever did.

Hello? This woman can fly athalf the speed of light.

Only post Crisis, which doesn't count :) Seriously, they've given her so many powers now she's as boring as Superman.

Honestly, I think a WWII WW movie is the way to go - you could compare her Greek mythology with the mythology of the Nazis and have all kinds of fun. And she was still vulnerable enough to get hurt.

AdrienVeidt: You people calling Diana 'Superman with Tits' are idiots. She should be treated as DC's Thor.


But... Thor is Marvel's Superman.


Karne: You would never believe how much harder it is to actually create something as opposed to just spending way too much time ripping them apart.


Ahem, well, you'd be wrong about that. I'm published and out there myself. I know as well as any artist that the work we do is up for criticism. He put himself out there using someone else's creation (Wonder Woman), and that opens him up to being critiqued for the way I (and others) perceive it in relation to the source material he's borrowing.

If you look at what I wrote, I did give credit where due ("A decently-made by-the-numbers trailer"  is a compliment), but I took issue with the way he under-utilized a character that could be so much more if handled correctly. I'm not trashing his efforts-- I'm trashing his sloppy approach to character research when he could have given us more than just Lynda Carter rehashed for the 2000s.

To the actress' credit, she handled what they gave her quite well, and I happen to think she looks better than any recent choice for the role.

If the director wanted to show off what he can do with action scenes, he could have picked any female warrior character to get it across the same way... But he chose Wonder Woman, and then proceeded to make a short film that ignores  everything important about the character.

So forgive me, but since one duty of mine is reviewing things, I have a tendency to pick stuff apart. It doesn't mean I dislike it or I'm directly insulting the artist's attempts; It means I see flaws and point them out. If an artist can't take my meager criticisms and use them to improve future projects, then he should probably quit before the  real mad dog professional critics get to him. I'm just a comic fan complaining that people never use Wonder Woman correctly. A film critic would hit him a lot harder than I did.

Wonder Woman fails in live action because nobody seems to want to spend a little time researching the character outside of the TV incarnation, and since every female action hero since the 1970s is essentially based on the TV Wonder Woman or Charlie's Angels, it's a wasted effort. It's old hat. And it doesn't have to be, because she's a great character with an interesting story or two to be told... It's just that film writers and directors don't want THAT Wonder Woman; They want to be sort of sexist and keep her trapped in the 20th century with high heels and spin kicks, instead of letting her throw tanks and fly, like she's been able to do for quite a while now.

TL;DR - If you're going to write someone else's character, at least learn what they can do first.

AdolfOliverPanties: Wonder Woman is lame. But then again, so is Superman.


Guess who never saw the Timm/Dini "JL/U"?  C'mon, take a guess folks~!

Meh at the trailer. It kinda felt like somebody figured Wonder Woman beating up stuntmen dressed as Nazis would be cool enough that they wouldn't have to come up with any more ideas or put much actual effort into it. Not awful; I give it a C+. Better than the pilot NBC made a year or two back.

I don't get why people find it so hard to translate this particular character from the comics, it's simple: Wonder Woman is a mix of old and new. Her origin is rooted in Greek mythology, her attitude is progressive and pro-empowerment . People get that a Batman villain has to have an antithetical moral code so they serve as a foil for Batman, do the same for Wonder Woman. Bring her values and her origin into contrast by throwing her against a villain who is a) rooted in Greek mythology and b) wants to subjugate everyone.

Have cults worshiping Ares start to pop up in the modern day and push for war against China or something, I dunno.

Diogenes: Me neither.  But I assume that was Hippolyta's voice we heard there, and it sounded like Marin Sirtis which made me happy.


Thank you.  It was driving me nuts trying to place that voice.  If it's not her, whoever it is does a damn fine Demona impression.

Having read some of the new 52 stuff...it's decent but the glaring flaw of completely inconsistent characters -- both in motivation, behavior and power level -- is pretty annoying to anyone but an adolescent.

The fact that they use Superman as the Worf of the Justice League storyline is pretty lame as well.

Rhypskallion: Nice trailer.   Not 'empowered by the gods' enough for my take on WW, but a nice trailer.
