While we have a couple years to wait until a feature-length sequel, the studio is giving us a little something in the interim.
Kate Beckinsale, star of new 'The Only Living Boy In New York,' says she was considered for a 'Wonder Woman' project in mid-2000s, but they never worked
With Wonder Woman continuing her assault on the box-office record books, it’s no surprise that the film’s brain trust is already cranking away on a sequel. Although no details have been announced yet — we expect some news at Saturday’s Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con — director Patty Jenkins and DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are teaming up for the Amazon princess’ second solo outing. “I’m working right now on the Wonder Woman 2 script,” Johns told Yahoo Movies.
DC has invited a few of its super friends to the Comic-Con party. Here, neatly assembled in glass enclosures (which look not unlike The Collector’s menagerie from a certain rival universe) are Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg sporting their costumes from this November’s Justice League. The team (sans Superman) is the centerpiece of the publisher’s booth, prominently located in the main thoroughfare of the San Diego Convention Center. Yahoo Movies got up close with the heroes; click through for our snaps from the show floor.
Yahoo Movies' sneak peek at Lego Justice League sets, based on big-screen action — revealing a few previously unknown plot points, characters, and vehicles
The “Wonder Woman” film offers yet another version of the Amazon’s genesis, cherry-picking from her various comic backstories and tossing in some new details.
After years on the drawing board, the Wonder Woman movie is finally slated to hit theaters on June 2, marking not only the latest entry in DC’s cinematic universe, but also the highest-profile standalone comic-book film fronted by a female superhero. The film tells the origin of the Amazon warrior, with Gal Gadot returning to the role she originated in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film opens in theaters on Friday, so Yahoo Movies pulled together the best photos available so you can get up to speed on all the key characters and settings from the film.
Said star Gal Gadot: "I think it's so important that girls and boys will have a strong female figure to look up to and be inspired by."
The 'Wonder Woman' cast and crew on some of the more interesting comic-book plot lines
Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are getting together a bunch of their new super friends for what DC and Warner Bros. hope is a crime-busting good time in the upcoming Justice League, slated for Nov. 17. While we’ve glimpsed the new members in trailers and brief interludes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we haven’t really gotten a clear look at Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) until today, when Warner Bros. unveiled the screen costumes at the annual Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, along with a bunch of the studio’s movie-related merchandise. As we’ve noted before here (and here!), the looks are inspired by such video games as Injustice, Arkham: Batman, and DC Universe Online as much as the classic comics. Click through and check them out for yourself.
While the Wonder Woman feature film is still a month away, another version of DC's signature hero will be in action in comic stores this weekend. To mark the annual Free Comic Book Day, the publisher is releasing a one-shot of DC Super Hero Girls, which finds junior versions of "Wondy," Supergirl, and Batgirl struggling to juggle high school life with crime-fighting. And Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look that comic here.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
There’s no doubt that male superheroes like Batman and Superman have long dominated DC’s cinematic universe, but with Wonder Woman heading to theaters this year and DC’s hugely popular multimedia initiative Super Hero Girls taking off over the past year, the ladies are catching up. While this year’s New York Toy Fair, taking place this weekend at Manhattan’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, will feature plenty of Bat-toys, there will also be loads of Wonder Women, Harley Quinns, and Supergirls on display. Click through to see Yahoo Movies’s exclusive sneak peek of the latest DC offerings from toy-maker Jakks Pacific.
Since her breakout role as Tyra Collette on the beloved television drama Friday Night Lights (#ClearEyesFullHeartsCantLose), Adrianne Palicki has participated in some grand-scale productions. As Baby, Baby, Baby hits DVD and Digital HD, Palicki dropped by Yahoo Studios for a Facebook Live interview (watch above) to tell us all about her new indie, plus her idea for a FNL spin-off and what she thinks went wrong with her failed Wonder Woman pilot. Palicki got to explore her artsy side in Baby, Baby, Baby.
Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
Following the news that Wonder Woman is bisexual – thanks to her current comicbook writer Greg Rucka – Gal Gadot has broached whether there will be any broaching of the subject in the forthcoming movie. Gadot, who is playing the Amazonian superhero, was doing the rounds for new comedy ‘Keeping Up With The Joneses’ when the subject came up. “In the film she falls in love with a man [Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine].
DC Entertainment’s Wonder Woman, who is currently in the midst of her 75th birthday celebrations, has been confirmed as being queer by current writer Greg Rucka — a confirmation that might not come as the biggest surprise to anyone reading the Wonder Woman comic book series. In an interview with Comicosity, Rucka confirmed speculation regarding the hero’s sexuality, and also talked about the difficulty in writing on the subject — in large part because of the character’s origins on the female-only island of Themyscira. “It’s supposed to be paradise,” Rucka explained.
Warner Bros. and DC may be struggling to secure positive reviews for their movies (notably recent release ‘Suicide Squad’), but it hasn’t deterred them from starting work on a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel. 2013 saw Henry Cavill don the red and blue suit for the first time but any news on a follow-up has been pretty quiet until now. Instead, the focus was on ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, which was a long and gruelling process alongside new Batman Ben Affleck.
While Star Wars doesn’t have the same outsized presence at Comic-Con as The Force Awakens provided last year — Lucasfilm just held its own Star Wars Celebration Europe convention last week to hype the studio’s upcoming slate — there’s one booth on the floor here in San Diego that is embracing Rogue One in a big way. On Wednesday evening, Lego will unveil a life-size Death Trooper, one of the Imperial’s nasty black-armored squad featured in the new standalone film, and Yahoo Movies has your exclusive sneak peek. This trooper was created with 27,202 bricks (several thousand more than either the neighboring Captain America or Wonder Woman statues).
Given that it was almost universally agreed that Gal Gadot’s appearance as Wonder Woman was the principal saving grace of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ it’s hard to believe that not so long ago many vocal fans were questioning the Israeli model-turned-actress’s suitability for the role. Having survived her baptism of fire, Gadot has just finished work on the ‘Wonder Woman’ solo movie, which is due in cinemas in less than eleven months time – and now, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have four new looks at the star in action. It makes sense that her suit would be considerably less tarnished, given ‘Wonder Woman’ is set 100 years earlier during World War I, and sees the immortal Amazon princess Diana visit the mortal world for the first time.
The Suicide Squad just hit Hollywood. In advance of the anticipated summer movie, due out Aug. 5, Warner Bros. is displaying a wide selection of costumes and props featuring DC Comics’ off-kilter band of baddies for visitors on the studio tour.This week, Warners previewed the exhibit, which also includes artifacts from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in its museum. In the coming months, the studio will rotate in new pieces from upcoming DC-based films like Wonder Woman and Justice League, as well as its stable of TV shows, including Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. DC Universe: The Exhibit opens to the public on May 24. In the meantime, click through and discover some new details about Suicide Squad.
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg make a magnificent seven. With that in mind, director Zack Snyder says his upcoming Justice League team-up will pay homage to one of cinema’s all-time classics: Akira Kurosawa’s The Seven Samurai. Snyder’s Justice League, the sequel to his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice set for November 2017, will be structured in similar fashion.
According to EW, these awesome and iconic DC characters are responsible for raising Wonder Woman on the island of Themyscira… and it seems they’re rather protective. Alongside Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman in this exclusive new image, we find Queen Hippolyta (played by Connie Nelson)… and joining them are her two aunts, General Antiope (played by Robin Wright) and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (played by Lisa Loven Kongsli).
