Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer released

Long awaited hero mash-up teases mini clip

Over this Weekend Superhero lovers were treated to no one but two epic coming movie trailers. Yesterday on this site we showed the Star Wars Episode VII clip. (Previous post)

Now it’s the turn of the long awaited and somewhat sceptical coming film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Well, here we go… 🙂 Sound off in the comments below! (Please try to keep them clean.)

The Film is set for release in 2016, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Gal Gadot also joins as the revamped Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman has been cast for Superman sequel

This is the new Wonder Woman!

Israeli star Gal Gadot will slip into the female Wonder’s hotpants under the direction of Zack Snyder, presumably. She will be joining the coming Batman vs. Superman sequel to Man of Steel, meaning Wonder Woman is due to launch.

While Gadot is a stunning and sexy lady, Zack has proved to be completely mindless in making a superhero franchise thrive. After his misdirection casting Ben Affleck ( a talented actor unfit for the role) into the Caped Crusader’s costume, Warner Brother’s is proving to be little competition to its rival, Disney, owning the Marvel group. The aim is to produce the long awaited Justice League film. Many view this as a cheap and lame way in conducting the film only based on Marvel’s boost of the Avenger’s unit.

Many believe Snyder is literally rushing the franchise along without Batman or Wonder Woman in their re-castings gaining new films beforehand.

Our view?

Warner need to sack Snyder imminently. Bringing the franchise down and crippling its mentality before it begins is horrific. When the movie plays out, Snyder’s rush to cast ‘popular favourites’ (especially after FalseFabs debated Wonder Woman’s inevitable on-screen return) will ruin the film, the actors and the characters. It is something that the movie house will never live down. On top of this, it will clearly hand the victory to Marvel.

Set for 2015, Snyder’s Superman sequel with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck is now rumoured to have been pushed back from its release date to 2016. Warner Bros. confirmed the film was put back till May 2016, which is another slap in the face to the fans. Prepare for more outrage on YouTube, no doubt.

While this is an amazing opportunity for Gadot, whom we have no hatred towards personally, the hiring of a random pin up will ruin the reputation of Wonder Woman herself. It could also make the franchise look very disillusioned from what a superhero actually is and what makes them connected to the audience.

Aiming to find someone ‘new’ and unknown to create some buzz and boost Snyder’s ego is ridiculous. The man has now proved immensely inferior and no picture house should work with the tool ever again. Your reputation is on the line and is something that when taking a huge hit, can ruin everything strived for.

Taking this long to deal with and filled with hot air, the film is already a massive mess and hasn’t even had any real detail on the release. If you need a new director, email us.

Can Wonder Woman resurface on screen?

In the growing age of a male dominated Superhero franchise and Societies impact on females as secondary, many have called for a female superhero to re-embody the limelight. There aren’t many female hero’s to note with the obvious being Wonder Woman and there are calls for her to stage a comeback. But in this revolutionary age, filled with actresses who are somewhat fashionable icons rather than gritty heroes, surely we cannot blame numerous Hollywood executives for rehashing the male impactful lycra saviours?

If Wonder Woman were to resurface who would play her? Would she have stage prominence? Would it empower women as it did in the 60s/70s and 80s?

With the lack of female role models in sport, politics and business clearly there is a place for such a comeback. However, Wonder Woman, in my opinion, should not be reborn just for the sake to sell a movie. The cost would be ruining the character for generations, missing vital ingredients for sequels and silly beauty models trying to bag roles that destroy her lineage. You could hire me to be part oft he team also, should the go ahead occur. 🙂

She fights for justice, love and sexual equality. Her special weapon, the Lasso of Truth binds her foes with peaceful might. On a mission to be noble, Wonder Woman may just be the greatest female to resurface as a role model. However, the script, action and actress portrayal must be paramount to success. It should not be resurfaced for a fun time if it will end up becoming a flop.

Asked what Superhero I most resemble, the answer is Superman. Helps others, seeks truth and fights injustice. Forget Batman, maybe Wonder Woman should have joined Superman in the Man of Steel sequel as the female mirror image. Am I transformed into Wonder Woman instead? 😮

Most notably nearly all females aside from Wonder Woman have been spin off’s such as SuperGirl, BatGirl etc and others in a series like Storm, Rogue and Jean Grey from X-Men. No stand alone character has joined the screens. The recent uprising of KissAss’s HitGirl is not one to fully embody because she is a villain in a heroes role with such violence and unnecessary evil promoted for the idea of goodwill which upsets the boundary.

Simply put, the only female hero is Wonder Woman, which also shows just how lacking the era of female power as a hero has come. For at least four decades, there has been none of real interest.

The majority of leading females have been cast into the role of wronged woman fighting for revenge using such brutal force to achieve retribution. Examples such as Kill Bill, Hit Girl as above, among other comic heroines is apparent. There should not be a female hero just for the sake of producing one. Then the production is to develop a fighting woman and then producers can’t help themselves to then cast them into a bitter battling demon of righteous value, supposedly. That formula does not work.

SHORTLIST

Lucy Lawless

  • Xena, primarily, but could be looked on for fallback as her stint in Battlestar Gallactica proved she can add a different layer to a charcter.

Gina Carano

  • Has more of a model look, however, which would disregard what Wonder Woman stands for.

Megan Fox

  • A huge no, no. Has no appeal except in a bikini.

Jessica Chastain

Christina Hendricks

  • No athleticisim, looker only.

Lynn Collins

  • Already played in John Carter film. 2012.

Emily Blunt

Michelle Williams

Meryl Streep

  • Well, she can do anything, can’t she?

Rachel McAdams

Christina Ricci

Mila Jovavich

Thandie Newton

What Wonder Woman requires is strong sense of appeal, maturity and a strong role model in heroic aspect. The Woman can be a redhead, too, as this would work in a modern take. Though she could never be blonde. The five below are options that would be best suited to bring back a strong sense of style, a sexual pin up in a respectful approach and aspirations for the future with a different stance and style in each one individual.
