“Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.”
As a comic book fan and reader, I tend to set my standards high, especially for DC because those are the comics I buy. But ever since The Dark Knight, there hasn’t been a decent DC film. Until now. Personally, they either miss the mark on understanding the characters (Harley Quinn being the exception) or lack the humor needed to keep the audience entertained between all the drama and darkness. Wonder Woman doesn’t do that. Wonder Woman gets everything right and let me say this, it was amazing.

As the title declares, this movie has two enormously famous superheroes, and we’re led to believe Justice will Dawn as a result of them facing off. But with a mouthful of a title, we have a little trouble figuring out exactly what kind of movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is trying to be. On the surface, it’s a long one. From what I could tell, Zack Snyder wanted to fit both a Batman movie and a Superman movie into its two and a half hour runtime. Those two unraveling entities finally meet up at the end for a bombastic finale that gets tacked on after the fight that the title promises.

Is it just me or does this movie sound like a Justice League movie rather than a Superman versus Batman movie? It’s one thing to have a cameo or Easter eggs within the film, but to bring in major character after major character, that is another thing entirely.

By: Cynthia Ayala Wonder Girl is awesome. At least she is now. Personally, I never liked her before the reboot. Okay, that’s being nice, she annoyed the heck out of me and just really got under my skin. She had none of the spunk or grace Donna Troy or Diana and always doubted herself. Always. Occasionally is fair and realistic, but for a leader, it … Continue reading Wonder Girl – New and Improved – DC Comics News
By: Cynthia A. There was a lot of controversy over this show around the fact that Blair Underwood is not a paraplegic. I don’t know why this show was isolated from other shows that do that, like Glee for instance. That really bothers me that a lot of people took immense offense to it and singled out this show. Personal feelings aside, if you disagree … Continue reading Ironside Cancelled
By: Cynthia A. So there has been many rumors about the King of Atlantis getting his own movie, especially after the success of the Batman Trilogy and Man of Steel and Warner Bros and Disney planon milking the superhero franchise for all it’s worth as they continue to compete against Marvel Studios which is rocking the film franchise right now.
