They did it! After years of anticipation and stalling, WONDER WOMAN has hit theaters and I’m happy to say it’s not only good, it is dare I say, wonderful. The story of how Princess Diana of Theymiscira (Gal Gadot) becomes WONDER WOMAN is a great movie for reasons I will explain below. But first…

Warning: Minor Spoilers…but nothing that will ruin the movie. (more…)

“We want female superhero movies!” say fans. “But women don’t sell tickets,” say execs. The argument’s been done to death. It’s time for concrete proof. And YOU have can provide that proof. So get off your keyboard and buy a ticket to Wonder Woman on opening weekend.

Why? Because despite being an icon, who hasn’t had a feature film, comicbook.com projects Wonder Woman as having the LOWEST DCEU OPENING WEEKEND! This means one thing, it’s up to us fans to make this movie a success.

Do you want that? If you do stop reading, if you don’t read on. (more…)

Warning: Opinion

For people who don’t like bullies, comic fans like to bully. Over the weekend, J. Scott Campbell and Erik Larsen voiced their opinion on super hero costumes being redesigned. Specifically, Wonder Woman’s. Their comments set off a firestorm. Some of it was polite, specifically when it was creator debating creator. But some of the comments from fans were condescending, childish, and so disrespectful that Mr. Larsen decided to leave Twitter. (more…)

The subject of women in comics is a hot one. One of the sub-subjects is female superheroes and movies, specifically why there isn’t a Wonder Woman movie. The big questions are, “Why did we get a Jonah Hex movie before Wonder Woman?” ” “Why do executives think a super hero movie with a female lead is an automatic bomb?” “Why do executives think Wonder Woman is difficult?” I don’t know the answers to all of the questions. I do know we’ve gotten some answers that are B.S.

 

Female super heroes can succeed at the box office. It’s not a question of whether or not the lead is a female, it’s a question of whether the movie is good or bad. So, what’s the formula for a good Wonder Woman movie? Read below. (more…)

As many of you now know DC Comics has announced they are renumbering their entire line in September. The renumbering is supposed to reflect significant changes to their continuity. While I’ll wait and see before I pass judgment, right now I’m not excited.

Don’t get me wrong, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee on “Justice League” is a dream team, it’s about time Grant Morrison got to write a Superman ongoing, Brian Azzarello’s “Wonder Woman” has me interested, and Geoff Johns faces his greatest challenge when he and Ivan Reis revive “Aquaman.” But still, there is something missing. After thinking about it I realized what the reboot is missing: new voices and perspectives. (more…)
