Wonder Woman

Things are shaping up well for Wonder Woman 2. After a long period of negotiating, Warner Bros. announced Patty Jenkins would return to direct the highly anticipated sequel, with a massive pay increase that would make her one of the highest paid female filmmakers in the industry. She will also be co-writing the script with Geoff Johns.

Now the two will be joined by an “Expendable” writer. But it’s not that kind of expendable. New reports confirm that The Expendables co-writer Dave Callaham will be joining the team. More on the story below.

Patty Jenkins Responds To James Cameron’s Short-Sighted ‘Wonder Woman’ Comments

Wonder Woman has been hailed as one of the best superhero films ever. As one of the first female superhero films, it also set the standard and raise the bar on the genre. The movie was not dreary or dark, but rather, full of hope and optimism. Above all, it never objectified the title character, who through stunning grace and power lifted the film that became an inspiration to many, particularly females.

But Wonder Woman isn’t without its criticisms. Sure, the third act may have been a little lackluster and the villain a tad bit generic, but overall, it was very entertaining. But I cannot stress how important this film is to usher in female superheroes and how that is important for girls. They can just be as strong, if not stronger, than the guys. Problem is, a few people don’t share those same views. One notable person who doesn’t believe that Wonder Woman is as great as many are making her out to be is Avatar director James Cameron, who claims that the character is “an objectified icon” and it’s a “step backwards.” So let us get into why he is wrong about that…

Zack Snyder’s Creative Influence In DCEU To Be Significantly Reduced
eelyajekiM   |  

Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, have been a part of the DCEU creative force since the very beginning. In fact, Zack Snyder has been a major presence having directed Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, some of Suicide Squad, and was an executive producer and/or writer for Wonder Woman and Aquaman. But it appears that the filmmaker’s creative input could be minimized significantly as the DCEU moves forward.

According to new reports, the Snyders “will no longer have anything like the level of creative influence that got the franchise to this point.” More on the story below.

Patty Jenkins directs Wonder Woman

It wouldn’t be at all surprising for a studio to sign a director on for a sequel after a film’s success. Given how Wonder Woman shattered all expectations, one would hope that director Patty Jenkins would already be signed on to direct Wonder Woman 2. There were reports going around saying she was.

However, that doesn’t seem to be quite the case. While Jenkins isn’t signed on, Warner Bros. will start a negotiation process with her very soon. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Wonder Woman
eelyajekiM   |  

Wonder Woman Header Image

Wonder Woman
Director: Patty Jenkins
Screenplay: Geoff Johns, Allan Heinberg
Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: June 2, 2017

Given that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad received such poor reviews (including from me), it’s easy to believe that WB could not put out anything remotely entertaining within the DCEU. Their constant meddling and the films’ lack of care certainly proved that they were not up to the task of competing with their rivals at Marvel Studios. But then came Wonder Woman. And this isn’t just about her own standalone film, which opens this weekend — we’ll get to that later — this is about her literally carrying the weight of the DCEU on her shoulders. For it was her who saved Batman v Superman from being a complete abomination. Her wit, her mystery, her power, and her inspiration that carried on throughout that film that had many asking when is Wonder Woman going to get her own feature.

Now that time has come. After years of standing on comic book shelves, the character has finally gotten her own film, simply titled Wonder Woman. Her own story to tell, with no assistance from the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel. Through stunning grace, incredible power, and mighty courage, not only is Wonder Woman what a superhero film should be, it showcases an empowering figure who should be an inspiration to anyone, but most importantly to females who have waited for a character they could look up to.
