So, on the weekend at San Diego ComicCon, this trailer dropped:
Then I got my head together, and here's what I think:
HOLY SHIT I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!
Okay, when I first heard that they were making a Wonder Woman film at all, I got a little excited. My thought immediately after that was, "Please don't make this a shit movie like you do with every other female driven superhero film. Please."
Well... Looks like I got my wish.
This trailer looks amazing, from the weird gender-swapped Little Mermaid bit at the beginning, to the WW1 setting, to the action scenes (HOLY SHOOTING DOUBLE ARROWS WHILE JUMPING THROUGH THE AIR! and also the scenes where Wonder Woman is fighting by herself), to the great lines ("What I do is not up to you") and GAH!
I'm really excited about this one guys!
I had my doubts about the casting. I was unsure of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. She was a fashion model. Hearing she had served time with the Israeli Defence Forces, however, assuaged me a little bit. I strongly believe now that I had no reason to fear whatsoever. Sure, she's not as muscular as I envisioned Wonder Woman to be, but there is certainly strength enough there to make it believable that she'd a a sword-wielding, whip-cracking, bullet-dodging badass.
AT LAST, GUYS! At last there is a female-led superhero movie that looks like the writers and director took seriously. It looks really, really, really good and I'm so excited for this movie.
What about you? Did this trailer get you excited for Wonder Woman? Let me know!
