TRAILER: Wonder Woman

Via Entertainment Weekly:

“I am Diana of Themyscira, daughter of Hippolyta. In the name of all that is good, your wrath upon this world is over,” Gal Gadot triumphantly declares in the latest Wonder Woman trailer, which she first shared on Twitter following her and costar Chris Pine’s appearance Saturday night on Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. After promising on Friday an “even bigger surprise” than the stunning poster, the new footage turned out to be a spine-tingling look at the character’s first ever feature-length film.

  • Gerry Fisher

    I’m there.

  • bkmn

    They spent too much money on Chris Pine’s wardrobe. When will they learn?

    • Adam King

      All those unnecessary shirts.

      • JW Swift

        …and pants.

  • GayOldLady

    OK! I can fully appreciate this Wonder Woman with a dash of Xena. 🙂

    • Christian1234567

      She’s hot.

      • GayOldLady

        She’s all that and a bag of chips.

        • Christian1234567

          This is on my “must see” list now. My first crush was Wonder Woman. I was mesmerized by her. It’s really odd that my parents didn’t realize that I was obviously a lesbian, especially when I announced I wanted to marry Wonder Woman when I was really young.

          • GayOldLady

            LOL! I’m an old woman and it’s definitely on my must see list too. In retrospect I knew I was a lesbian by the time I was 6, I just didn’t understand it until much later.And it’s likely that if your parents had known what they were looking for they would have seen it in you early on. Do your parents accept you now?

          • Christian1234567

            If I had known what lesbians were, I would have known by age 3. I lived in an area with compulsive heterosexuality, and when I finally heard any mention of gays or lesbians, it was highly negative.
            My mom is very accepting. My dad is somewhat accepting. But he’s always been a misogynist, so that’s not surprising.

          • GayOldLady

            I’m glad your parents, particularly your mom, are accepting. It makes life much easier.

          • StudioTodd

            My first crush was Wonder Woman, too, and I’m an old gay man…she’s everything.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Apparently, it was worth waiting for Gadot.

      It took me a few seconds but LOL!

  • SoCalGal20

    As I said in another thread, I’ll be there. Excited for this! Superhero movie with a female protagonis and directed by a woman. (And I was a fan of the Wondereoman tv series when I was growing up).

    • Bomer

      Me too! Loved the t.v. series when I was little. Will definitely be seeing this one in the theatre.

    • StudioTodd

      And written by a gay man.

  • easygoingmister

    I. Can. Hardly. Wait.

  • Carl

    This will be good and bring more diversity to the genre. So excited for this one.

    And Spidey and Guardians of the Galaxy this summer. It’s a good time to be a geek.

    • Friday

      I really need to get to the movies more somehow. 🙂

      • Bj Lincoln

        We only went once a year with a group of friends that all read the Hunger Games. We haven’t been since. I just told the wife we will be going to see this.

      • Carl

        Go now. Kong: Skull Island and Logan are both a hoot.

        • Bj Lincoln

          Kong is one to see on the big screen but I am sad that the story is swallowed up in all the CGI and how so much scary Kong is.

        • Friday

          Not actually that easy for me right now, given health, budget, and time-demands reasons. 🙂

      • Adam King

        I wait for them to come on at-home media. I can’t abide the behavior of movie audiences anymore.

    • EdmondWherever

      There might be something geek-worthy in December, too….

      • Carl

        The Force is strong in December.

  • T-Batwoman

    I’ve always maintained that Gal is the most beautiful human being I’ve ever seen and Chris is funny, in his roles he always reeks of confidence which is hot. Should be a good movie 😃

    • DoctorDJ

      I’m too old to give many effs about comic book movies, but (damn) I could gaze upon her contenance til the cows come home…

      • Adam King

        I’m ancient and I love comic book movies. My second childhood is more thrilling than the first.

    • I have very impure thoughts whenever I see Chris Pine.

  • Friday

    Woo! 🙂

  • Ernest Endevor

    Yes, and I am Marie of Romania.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Wonder Women was my first female hero. Not many women were heroes of anything then. Linda Carter was beautiful, still is, but this young thing is stunning. Can’t wait!

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      I met and spoke with Linda Carter years ago while waiting for a flight out of London. She was great! And beautiful and friendly. By the way, BJ, this probably won’t be a good year for the D.C. Cherry blossoms. Poetic justice for the newly installed Trump administration.

    • BlueberriesForMe

      Imagine using the lasso on Drumpf. He’s explode into little pieces because he couldn’t stand the thought of telling the truth about anything.

      • Todd Allis

        “I’m sorry. I’m really a fake. It’s sad.” *boom*

  • BeaverTales

    “She should never know the truth about what she is…”

    A very gay teaser. 🙂

    That was a good trailer. I think I guessed her secret, reading the fan sites (spoiler alert: her father is a God).

    • there is the most awesome cartoon about that. i can’t find it on youtube anymore. it was really well done and dealt with some of her divine origins as well as lots of other parts of the actual and not TV narrative of WW. lots of famous people did the voices.

    • Carl

      She could be the daughter of Zeus. Or maybe not. DC can’t seem to settle on an origin for her. It changes just about every time a new creative team takes over the comic.

      • greenmanTN

        In the original version her mother made a sculpture of a child and Zeus breathed life into it. That seems to be the story the movie is using, or a variation, because in a previous trailer Chris Pine asks “You’ve never seen a man before? What about your father? Her reply is “I was brought to life by Zeus.”

  • Mickey Bitsko

    Robin Wright steals this imho.

  • i’ll see this one. woman director? what a refreshing change in comix movies.

    • Joseph Miceli

      She also is not fighting crime in a bikini, Spandex or high heals. It is wonderful that she looks Middle-Eastern, and the movie doesn’t look like it takes itself too seriously (Batman vs. Superman….ugh!) A little comic relief goes a long way. I hope Ben Afleck takes notes.

      • Adam King

        Ben Affleck bowed out of directing the new Batman.

        • Joseph Miceli

          Frankly, I think it is a wise choice. I’m not going to beat him up here, but that movie was just too dark. You have to have some comic relief.

          • Adam King

            I’m speaking of the future Batman movie that Affleck was supposed to write, direct and star in.

          • Joseph Miceli

            Well, my comment applies to that as well. It can’t be all dark.

    • Joseph Miceli

      Her mother keeps pushing her to marry a nice girl.

  • Joseph Miceli

    So…all through the Golden and Silver age of comics, there was an island full of hot, immortal warrior women where men are forbidden and who….what? ….no sex?
    I am amazed that it got by the Comics Code Authority. Suppose there had been an island of immortal warrior men? I bet there’d have been female slaves off camera somewhere or “raids” to keep them manly. God forbid they’d “turn to each other.”

    • Adam King

      There’s always been a strong undercurrent of bondage in Wonder Woman as well.

      • Joseph Miceli

        OMG, I had forgotten about that. I remember reading something 20 or so years ago about how secret bondage fetishists would get off on Wonder Woman lassoing men. LOL, I guess it is their equivalent to gays and the men’s underwear section of the Sears Catalogue way back when. 🙂

        • Adam King

          Look up William Moulton Marston, the originator of Wonder Woman. He was a bondage fetishist and a dedicated pervert of the highest order.

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            There’s actually a really good book about him and his family life out. It’s really trippy. http://www.npr.org/2014/10/17/356989560/the-freaky-fabulous-feminist-secret-history-of-wonder-woman

          • greenmanTN

            I did like that book, The Secret History of Wonder Woman.

            To me the claim that he was into bondage IRL was ambiguous, but he sure as hell had Wonder Woman get tied up a lot! Though his mistress Olive Byrne wore some sort of “slave bracelets” for many years. I’m glad they are including Etta Candy in this movie, in a far less offensive version.

            If you’ve read the book, you know that Marston had both a wife and a mistress who lived with them, Olive Byrne. He had children by both women, but they lied to Byrne’s children and they didn’t know he was their father until long after his death, and they were NOT happy about being lied to. Interestingly, after Marston’s death the two women lived together for the rest of their lives.

          • Joseph Miceli

            Wow. No wonder he liked a strong woman! LOL, well thanks to him we have an enduring icon…with a lasso that binds men and forces them to do her will. 🙂

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      One comic writer said she is:

      “It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily,” Rucka said. “And part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner — to have a fulfilling, romantic and
      sexual relationship. And the only options are women.”

      Wonder Woman even officiated a marriage between two women in a digital August 2015 comic. (/Jason Badower)

      But Rucka is the first DC Comics writer to officially state that Wonder
      Woman is a queer character. And he says she has been in love and had
      relationships with other women, adding, “As (artist Nicola Scott) and I
      approach it, the answer is obviously yes. And it needs to be yes for a
      number of reasons.”

      • Joseph Miceli

        I’m glad that we have come so far, I just think it is amazing that such an obvious fact of human nature was so successfully glossed over for 60 or so years. Denial and prudery in America know no bounds.

  • WiscoJoe

    Yasss! I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since Patty Jenkins made ‘Monster.’ Sucks we’ve had to wait so long for her follow up, but at least it’s going to be something spectacular.

  • 3-Star
    • Oh, Parker

      Thank you! I love me some Wonder Woman but she never took anyone out solely with a Vegas fan kick.

    • Bomer

      I liked Batgirl, but I liked Cat Woman more.

  • greenmanTN

    I was a big fan of the Wonder Woman series and I’m looking forward to this too.

    Embarrassing admission: When the WW show was on, I took a pair of heinous red, white, and blue pants (it was the 70s, not noted for its subtlety), cut them into shorts, and ran around lassoing things with my golden rope, which was gift-wrapping rope from the Hallmark store. I was Wonder BOY, thank you very much and I got pretty good with that lasso! 😉

    And believe it or not, I was the one in the family they DIDN’T suspect was gay!

    Here’s is my theory on why I like WW and The Bionic Woman, but didn’t really like the Six Million Dollar Man, etc. I was bullied quite a bit in school, from minor to severe, all by the other boys. Male “heroes” reminded me on some level of the asshole jocks who did it, so perhaps subconsciously that ruined my enjoyment. But I like action movies/shows as much a story the next guy, and heroines didn’t have the same baggage and I could enjoy them more.

    • Card

      WW was also among my first RP experiences 😉

      …and then there was the time I had to go to the hospital for driving my Big Wheel like one of them Duke boys drivin’ the General Lee.

      • greenmanTN

        True story, may god strike me dead if this isn’t the truth. (Though if I was going to smited it would have happened well before this.)

        This family moved in next door to us when I was maybe in my early teens. Their son Chuck “liked to work on cars.” So he produced a replica of the car on Dukes Of Hazzard, red/orange, with a Conferate Flag on the roof, AND it played the first few bars of Dixie Land, or whatever you call it,when you hit the horn.

        Sure, whatever, but his repair work was on a Chevy Pinto, which was hardly a “muscle car,” AND it was playing Dixie!

        https://theweeklydriver.com/wp-content/uploads/pinto.jpg

        • Oh, Parker

          Don’t saddle Chevy with that mess. That’s all on Ford.

    • Bomer

      Ha! My Great Aunt actually made me a WW costume. Red shorts, blue top, red cape. Wore the hell out of it. And I was the same when it came to female characters. Still am really.

      • greenmanTN

        My grandmother made me a kerchief to wear around my neck like Freddie from Scoobie Doo!

        Top that! 😉

        • Bomer

          I had a thing for polar bears so my Gram had a polar bear costume made for me for Halloween one year. Full on heavy fake fur that I wore in Arizona. Almost sweat to death, but I loved that costume.

          • greenmanTN

            Halloween is my favorite holiday no getting together with family you don’t really like, no ass-aching religio.us morality.

          • Bomer

            Halloween is the best. Candy, alcohol, cheesy horror movies and no family if you don’t want any. And unlike Thanksgiving and Christmas no guilt if you want to avoid your family.

          • greenmanTN

            My parents weren’t willing to do much for costumes other than buy one from the store, so at some point I started making my own, buying the fabric from a store within walking distance but my stitches were really big, kind of like something a coroner would do to a cadaver.

            The Dracula cape came out pretty good, even if was just a piece of black cloth lined by red fabric, which I think I attached with glue.

            But by FAR the worst was the the troll costume (mythical troll not online troll) I made one year, and I bought some cheap cotton cloth and dyed it with hot water green Ritz dye, the day before Halloween. It was supposed to be kind of like a smock with a crenellated bottom but the fabric shrunk in the hot dye and became the gayest Peter Pan costume ever, barely became below my underwear.

            My plan was to go as a somewhat scary troll. Instead I went as jailbait.

          • Bomer

            Normally my costumes tended to be thrown together from whatever I had scattered around. A few were store bought (the cheap fire hazard ones), but that polar bear one was special and one of a kind. Shame it got lost in all the many moves.

          • greenmanTN

            I was living in an apartment complex in Houston and my straight male neighbor came to me on Halloween, just before dark, and said “I’m supposed to go to a party tonight and I don’t have a costume!” (A little notice might have been nice.)

            So I said, ” I don’t have have any costumes laying around, so what have you got?” The only thing he had was a silly-ass tartan ‘hat,’ but I had a roll of adhesive translucent plastic which was intended for use in book preservation, or at least seal dust jackets, so I made him a giant sash with things stuck all over it.

            So he went as Scotch Tape. 😉

          • Bomer

            Knew a girl in college that was named Susan. One year she blacked her eye and went as a Black-eyed Susan.

            this is me dressed up for Rocky Horror. Then of course I ran into my older cousin and a pack of his Eagle Scout friends. Oh yeah, I fit rural East TN like a glove! 😉

          • Bomer

            Lol nice! The one time I went to the Rocky Horror Show I was able to dress myself enough to look like it wasn’t my first time, and there by avoid having “virgin” scrawled across my forehead in Sharpie, until the people I went with ratted me out.

            Sometimes it amazes me that my mother had no clue I was gay (like the WW costume). She and her 3rd husband were going to some 40s themed murder mystery thing and she was freaking out ’cause she didn’t have a costume (on the night of the dinner). So 11 year old me takes her by the hand, leads her to her closet, pulls out a dress that with proper accessories will pass, makes her put it on, picks out the accessories, shoes, and then does her hair in a passible 40s style with nothing but a long red ribbon (that matches the shoes and the belt). I also gave her make-up tips.

            Her outfit was a hit.

          • greenmanTN

            I think they pretend, whistling past the grave yard, as it were.

          • greenmanTN

            My brother was caught diddling around with another boy, when they were both 5 or 6 years old, so he was always suspect. I however could could put a fishnet stocking over my face…

          • Bomer

            I used to steal my mother’s dresses and my Gram’s high heels all the time and used to ask questions about make up.

            Oddly enough when I was wearing eye liner and nail polish in my 20s no one said anything. To this day I can put on nail polish and just get compliments. I dress “normal” (jeans, t-shirt) and I get “Hey! Hey you! You a fag?!”

          • greenmanTN

            I am glad you got to fulfill that role, but my brother did dress and wardrobe for our mother (oddly she was never mom, always “mother”) and I was the frustrating accident, but I was the one who took care of her in her last years.

            Well my brother has always been a bit of an asshole (more so now) and was always afraid about not coming across as masculine enough. I never fucking cared.

          • greenmanTN

            I bought a few of those 1970s superhero dolls, one of which was Superman. I tinted his face green with watercolors, used acrylic paint to cover up the curl on his forehead and gave him a widow’s peak, made him a black cape and black suit, and built him a coffin from matte board.

            Many years later I told that story to a therapist and he said, “Hmmm. don’t you think it’s interesting you turned such a powerful symbol of heroism into a vampire?”

            “No, I just like Dracula better than Superman!” 😉

          • Bomer

            I had the giant Star Wars figures when I was little. I carried Princess Leia everywhere and my Luke and Han dolls had a thing for each other.

            That was the last year I went trick or treating, but I want to call out the ass who gave a single piece of candy corn. That shit is nasty to begin with anyway, but doling it out by the piece?

            When I went as the polar bear (3rd grade) my mother did my make up…and gave me whiskers. By the 3rd time I was called a kitty cat I stomped my foot and said “I’m a polar bear, damn it!”

        I love the movie Long Kiss Goodnight with Geena Davis as a woman with amnesia who starts to re,ember her previous life as an absolutely deadly governement agent.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    I’m not optimistic about this given how bad BvS was. I like Wonder Woman and love the costume, but the problem is that DC is trying to take a decade of character development that Marvel did and cram it into three or four movies.

  • Snarky

    The trailer looked okay until they threw in that comic relief line at the end. Isn’t this supposed to be a WWI-era movie? Then why the modern delivery on the joke? BvS, Man of Steel, Suicide Squad were all awful. Maybe, against what experience tells me, DC can get this one right. My gut says no.

    • greenmanTN

      Don’t expect realism. It is, after all, a comic book movie, and the comic relief might be the hints that saves it because dreary doesn’t seem to be working.

  • Alessar

    There’s been this weird rumor for a while now that the movie actually sucks and they were “hiding behind a good trailer.” This started as some kind of “insider leak” blind item.

    I don’t buy it.

    The material we’ve been shown in the trailer looks good. The story might be kind of thin but I don’t think it’s going to suck. We’ve already seen enough key points to suggest that overall there’s much better material than in BvS:DOJ. Frankly, the BvS movie looked terrible in the trailer and it was even worse.

    I suspect it’s more of a case of industry pushback against this because it’s a woman directing and a woman hero. I hope it blows the roof off the box office.

  • greenmanTN

    An aside, but Jason Momoa is hot as blue blazes, but I suspect the Aquaman movie is going to suck.
