You have to appreciate accidentally breaking news. Deadline ran a report about actress Gal Gadot is in talks for a film called Keeping Up With The Jonesthat stars Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher andJon Hamm. Then to add depth to the story, they mention her three upcoming films Criminals, Triple Nine and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justiceand the fact that she will begin shooting the Wonder Woman movie in the fall.

Starting to film in the fall seems a little early, but it falls in line with Batman v Superman which started shooting two years ahead of it’s released date.

Wonder Woman is rumored to be scheduled for a June 23rd, 2017 release.

For the most part DC’s cinematic universe hasn’t had to deviate from the classic origins of its characters. How many times have we seen Bruce Wayne’s parent’s gunned down and baby Superman fleeing a destroyed Krypton? But Wonder Woman’s origins are far more complicated.

Originally Wonder Woman was molded out of clay (!) and brought to life by the Greek deities and raised by the Amazon sisterhood. This origin stuck up until a 2010 reboot of the character that saw her origins more along the lines of Superman’s – having been sent to New York as a baby when her Paradise Island home was destroyed.

In 2011 the entire DC comic book universe got a reboot in the fashion of The New 52. And it is these origins that the producer for the Wonder Woman film, Charles Roven, has confirmed Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will adhere to.

In The New 52, Wonder Woman is the relatively more naturally born daughter of Zeus and Amazon Queen Hippolyta. Of course Zeus’ wife, Hera doesn’t take too kindly to this fact and it ends up causing all sorts of problems for her and her Amazon sisters.

While there is strong feminist support for her original birth – which required no male involvement whatsoever – there’s something cinematic and relatable to a superhero with a more conflicted background. It may not be purist to have a Wonder Woman with daddy issues but there is something empowering in the way she overcomes them, even if it does mirror the origin of Hercules perhaps too closely.

The New 52 origins also does away with that implicitly non-cinematic invisible plane. Here she is given the power of flight with a little help from her friend Hermes – we’ll see if this will be a development that the film takes advantage of as well.

What about those cuffs? Previously they were a pair of nice bullet (or any other thing) proof bracelets but now the cuffs are the one item that actually keep her God-like powers in check. Take them off and it is bad news for whatever foe is up in her grill.

And speaking of foes? While we may not see them in Batman vs Superman, what does Wonder Woman’s rouges gallery look like? Well, Wonder Woman, in her own way, is a bit like a female version of Thor.

Replace the Norse mythology with Greek mythology and you have an idea of the friends and foes that surround her. So you have the likes of Hades, Poseidon and Apollo regularly showing up to try and dethrone Wonder Woman along with troublemakers like the appropriately named Nemesis and Minotaur.

So there are a lot of different choices and angles the film could take in establishing Wonder Woman’s world. It’s a rich history with a deep lineup of colorful characters to choose from.

Warner Bros. has previously announced that DC Comics’ iconic character “Wonder Woman” is having its very own live action movie adaptation featuring Gal Gadot during the presentation for investors.

However, “Breaking Bad” director Michelle MacLaren, who was tapped to helm the project, revealed that there has yet a script, a release date or a green light for the project during her recent interview with Vulture.

“I really, really, really can’t talk about this,” MacLaren said trying to avoid the topic. “I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?”

While this may worry fans of the Amazonian princess, Movie Pilot reports that Warner Bros. has hired six writers to pen six different versions of the upcoming “Wonder Woman” live action movie in addition to “Pan” scribe Jason Fuchs.

It only goes to show that the studio company is putting all its efforts in bringing Diana of Themyscir to the big screen.

In addition, Variety has previously confirmed that Gal Gadot has signed on a three-movie deal with Warner Bros. as “Wonder Woman,” the first of which is her appearance in the upcoming “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” film.

And while there hasn’t been a concrete plot for the upcoming movie adaptation word has it that the origin story of “Wonder Woman” will be featured in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” a story which could possibly be explored in the standalone film.

With DC Comics building their own Cinematic Universe, it has been announced that Game of Thrones‘ Michelle MacLaren will direct the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman, ending months of speculation.

Starring Gal Gadot, the eagerly awaited adaptation of the iconic supperhero will be developed by MacLaren alongside Producers Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Debbie Snyder and Richard Suckle.

MacLaren’s previous works include the aforementioned Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and The X-Files, and it is believed that the veteran director had taken several meetings with the studio earlier this month.

Little is known about the first solo outing for Diana aka Wonder Woman, but the film is expected in cinemas on June 23 2017, following Gadot’s debut as the character in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 23 2016.

We’ve got word as to who may actually direct the movie: Breaking Bad executive-producer/director Michelle MacLaren. Variety reports that MacLaren is “in talks” to take on the Wonder Woman film, which Charles Roven will produce for a June 23, 2017, release.

Little is known about the plot of the Wonder Woman movie, though the character will first appear in Dawn of Justice when it hits in March 2016.

MacLaren can be considered Breaking Bad’s “main” director. As our own Eric Goldman points out, she helmed 11 of the show’s 62 episodes — more than any other director. She was eventually made an executive producer on the show and oversaw the editing with Vince Gilligan on the entire final season. The third season episode “One Minute” in particular brought her to the attention of many fans. She’s also directed four episodes of Game of Thrones, three for The Walking Dead, and a bunch for other series (including an X-Files, which she also was a producer for!), but Wonder Woman will mark her big-screen helming debut if she signs on with the studio.

Warner Bros. have already made an offer to a female director for the Wonder Woman movie, we just don’t know who…

The Wonder Woman movie is going to be here on June 23rd, 2017. It has a star in Gal Gadot. It may or may not have a writer. If it does, they’re keeping him or her quiet. And it certainly doesn’t have a director…yet.

We know that Warner Bros. is looking to find the right woman to direct the debut cinematic outing of one of DC’s most important characters. We can cross one name off that list: Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander. “I can’t say they wouldn’t consider me, but they haven’t reached out,” she told Forbes. But Ms. Alexander did say that Warner Bros. have made an offer to somebody (she doesn’t say who), and “If she says yes, everybody will be very happy, including me.”

She expressed some caution, though, about attaching a female director to a movie like Wonder Woman, which comes with all manner of marketing and studio considerations and expectations. “How many male superhero movies fail? So now, we finally get Wonder Woman with a female director, imagine if it fails,” she told Fast Company. “And you have no control over marketing, over budget. So without any control, you carry the fucking weight of gender equality for both characters and women directors. No way.”

Both of those interviews with Lexi Alexander that we linked up above are well worth reading, by the way.

Anyone want to place their bets on Kathryn Bigelow as Wonder Woman director?

Gal Gadot will star following her debut as the Princess Diana of Themyscira in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but new reports have suggested it will be a drastically different kind of film.

Dawn of Justice is set in the modern day, but according to Bleeding Cool, the first Wonder Woman movie will be set partly on Themyscira, also called as Paradise Island – the home of Wonder Woman and her Amazonian kin – and partly in the 1920s.

“I have been informed by those who have seen the greenlit treatment that the film will spends the first half on Paradise Island [Themyscira] with warring Amazon factions vying for control,” reads their report. “An arrival of a man on the island changes that status quo, as he asks the Amazons for help. Not necessarily Steve Trevor either…

“When Wonder Woman joins him on his return to the world of Man, we all discover that it is the 1920s. And the film will then show Diana exploring that world – a world where women have only just got the vote – from her unique perspective.”

The report also says that a second Wonder Woman movie would jump ahead a couple of decades to World War 2. Wonder Woman versus Nazis? I’m game.

The assumption was that Wonder Woman’s films would follow on from Batman v Superman in the present day. But a prequel series allows Warner Bros and DC to enrich the cohesive universe they are building, which will be highlighted with two Justice League movies in 2017 and 2019, and stay true to Wonder Woman’s origins in the comic universe.

Wonder Woman will be the first solo DC superhero adventure following Batman v Superman, and will be followed by outings for Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg and DC’s Captain Marvel, in Shazam!. Batman and Superman solo movies have also been confirmed, but do not have any release date.

Wonder Woman will be released on 23 June 2017.


/ October 27th, 2014   Wonder Woman

For months now, there has been talk how Zack Snyder will explain the origins of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. How would fans accept her supernatural powers, without an origin story? Would her powers be tied into those of Superman?

Now, after months and months, we have an answer:

Wonder Woman is NOT a Kryptonian

Much of the speculation about Wonder Woman’s origins focused on one particular Easter Egg in Man of Steel. As Superman entered the fortress of Solitude for the first time and found the corpses of his fellow Kryptonians in their cryogenic pods, there was one open pod.

The theory which followed from this, which has its origins in the Man of Steel prequel comic, was that Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) had gotten free thousands of years before Superman’s arrival on earth, and set up a colony of powerful women on the island of Themyscira. These women became known to the Greeks as the Amazons, and Gal Gadot’s character was to be descended from Supergirl, making her a distant cousin of Superman.

Now, though, a producer of Batman vs Superman has come and spoken out about Wonder Woman’s backstory. Charles Roven said:

Well Wonder Woman’s in it, we know that. She has powers, she’s a goddess. She’s half… she’s a demigod. Her father was Zeus.

In the New 52 comics, Wonder Woman is the offspring of Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons & Zeus, king of the Gods. A result of this union, however, is to endanger the young Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), as Zeus’ wife Hera wants to track down and kill the young Amazon girl.

This origin will introduce a whole host of other characters, too, such as Circe and Ares, which we will presumably see in the Wonder Woman standalone movie.

The reason why Zack Snyder has opted for this origin for Wonder Woman is clear. Although it might have been convenient at first to tie the origins of the two characters with supernatural powers in Batman vs Superman together, it does not make sense when you consider that we are expecting to see Dawn of Justice introduce, at least, Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Lantern & The Flash, if not others, too.

However, confirmation of this origin for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman does raise one interesting possibility. Themyscira, the home of the Amazons, could play a big part in the story of one potential Justice League villain: Doomsday!

Doomsday Coming to Batman vs Superman!?

The Amazons of Themyscira guard over a gateway to another realm of dark and deadly creatures known as Doom’s Doorway. We already know that Gal Gadot & co have travelled to Morocco to film scenes set in Themyscira, and that Doomsday is speculated to be the villain powerful enough to unite the Justice League.
