Gal Gadot with a very Princess Diana of Themyscira vibe here.
Q:Do we have any idea when they will release pictures of gal gadot's costume for MOS2? Or are we just waiting for them to surprise us with it? All of the great fan concepts are making me impatient!
We heard nothing concrete but some say San Diego Comic Con, which coincidentally is this month 24th - 27th July 2014 fans could get the first look. So keep your fingers crossed.
Henry Cavill’s two Wonder Women. ;)
Gina Carano, as we know, is in Gal Gadot’s (as Wonder Woman) corner.
“I worked with her on Fast & Furious 6, and she’s amazing.Such a great person with such a solidness in her character, so I’m very excited for her to do that. I think people have an idea what they consider Wonder Woman. I definitely know (Gadot) has been training and there’s so much more that goes into being a strong female character. I think people have their own idea, but I always like the underdog, I’m always rooting for the underdog. If the world says you can’t do something, I couldn’t care less because that’s not how anybody should live their lives.”
Q:Why does DC get so much hate and complaints? Fans are getting the movies they want and new comic stories but it's not good enough. The new 52 has rough spots but it's coming along and slowly introducing more characters. I love Superman but in truth, Superman lost a lot of popularity over time, became "irrelevant" and of course Batman took the lead but the new 52 and MOS gave Superman a big boost and Superman/Wonder Woman is phenomenal. What more could a real fan ask for?
As my co-mod said before, you can’t please everyone. But DC/WB is a business. They make creative decisions based on sales, not likes on tumblr or retweets on twitter as said by Dan Didio himself. You are right. Superman was in a creative slump. He was bogged down with confusing continuity and stories that were not inspiring fans to pull out their money. If these fans who claimed to love Superman and their status quo so much then maybe they should have been showing it by supporting him financially. They might not have had such a hard reboot to the character. Should be noted that characters selling better than Superman did not have hard reboots. eg, Batman, Green Lantern and Aquaman.
Overall the need to reboot the line came at a time the entire industry was flagging. The new 52 it is widely acknowledged revitalized the comic industry and benefited Marvel and other publishers too. Now that is not to say there would not be challenges for DC later down the line because comics simply do not sell as they did say 20 years ago. There is a lot of competition from other forms of entertainment media and a need to keep the line fresh. Digital comics we know have helped boost sales as well and how much this adds to the final sales numbers we don’t know. But judging by the fact that DC have some comics with low orders via Diamond but sell well in digital, then one assumes that digital has to be important. Else why would DC be publishing these comics like Injustice or the Beyond Books or Smallville that seem to be at cancellation numbers on the Diamond pre-order chart?
Now if DC needs to change something because it is not selling then we have to respect that. Some fans are their own worse enemy too. They make big claims and when DC gives them what they say they want…they don’t follow through with the support. eg the poor sales of the Lois Lane one shot, if it had done well enough could have kicked off a LL ongoing series. Superman/Wonder Woman is good seller for DC, both digital and hardcopy. So while it sells well enough, we expect it to continue. The day it stops, as disappointed as we will be, we will have to understand that DC made the decision based on $$$.
Fans are also very impatient and some behave as if DC are deliberately being mean to them because DC simply chooses to exercise its right to use its own creative properties as they see fit. DC have slowly been introducing characters because you can’t have everything happening at once. They have also benched some characters. The reality is many characters in the past have been benched in story-lines. Even popular ones like Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. So no DC is not doing it to be mean to anyone.
MOS, as you know, has had a lot of hate thrown at it. But it also made money and WB are pushing ahead with plans for a series of movies. That alone should say something.
So our advice? Don’t pay attention to internet noise.
Q:With the official title and the David Goyer controversy, how do you feel about the movie and how WW will be portrayed?
We hope Diana will be portrayed well rounded, showing not only her badass warrior skills but her trademark compassion too. Even if it is a cameo, she’ll make a good enough impression that she can get her own feature.
Goyer made a statement in a podcast we heard that was a spin of his ideas of She-Hulk and we know it offended some fans. You know, being a blog that has had its share of “controversy” because we shipped something that veered from the norm, and we have had to hear people attack it as being sexist and misogynistic and a gimmick…I supposed we could say he is entitled to his opinion as are people entitled to get mad if they want. The current writer of SHE-HULK is the current writer of SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN. The man is a talented man. He takes ideas and makes them work. Maybe Goyer should read Charles Soule’s book. Just like the many people who hated on ClarkxDiana and then slowly began to turn around and realize the concept was actually working.
We hope the movie will be good. That’s all we can do.

This will be the first time we will see a live action Superman and Wonder Woman interact. Very eager to see this!
Yes, yes, he’s gorgeous as heck but he mentioned Doomsday and it is a Doomed week. Seems to us Henry has been dropping hints along the way. From Batman to Cyborg long before we knew about them. So, think we might see a hint/version of Doomsday in the DC movie-verse?
It’s learned that either Gal Gadot is back in Michigan for Batman Vs.
