It’s starting. Can you feel it?
The Warner Bros. promotion machine is cranking up for their next big DC Comics film, Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot in the role she starred in last year’s Dawn of Justice. ComicBook.com uncovered a new International Trailer playing in Russia for Princess Diana of Themyscira. Though it doesn’t show any new footage, it is edited differently. It also allows you to hear the trailer in Russian, which is a kick.
Following the rough year DC had last year with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, this film has a lot of pressure on it. Warner Bros really needs this film to do really well. It’s a foregone conclusion that it will do relatively well at the box office, but what they really need is a film that does well with the critics and the fans. All in all, they just really need it to be a good movie.
In fact, all of us need it to be a good movie. All of us comic book nerds are dying to have a DC movie that we love. After seventy five years of denying a film for Wonder Woman but giving Superman and Batman at least eleven films between them, it would be a wonderful irony if the movie that saved the franchise was the one they denied for so long.
