The origin trailer for the latest Wonder Woman movie has been released and boy, it looks like a wonderful time. It’s the first look at the first female superhero movie in decades….if you don’t count Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice because that movie was just one big trailer for Wonder Woman. Just one overly long trailer that should have been way shorter. I swear the director has a fetish for Wonder Woman.
The trailer shows that the movie is appearing in early 1900s London after Captain Kirk…erm, a pilot Steve Trevor crashes and lands on Themyscira. Princess Diana travels with the most generic man alive to bring an end to the World War I. The trailer also showed the rise and growth of Wonder Woman as she gets trained and finds out her true powers. It’s pretty much a deadly 80s training montage without catchy music. Gal Gadot returns to reprise her role as the Wonder Woman…I add the because every superhero has the in front because it sounds cooler. Steve Trevor, the whitest generic name ever, will be played by Chris Pine aka Captain Kirk. Both do a good job in the trailer but it shows more of Chris than Gal. I’m guessing that’s because Gal was featured in Batman v Superman and Chris wasn’t in because his character was either dead or in a retirement home. I just would have liked to see more of Gal in it since she’s the lead.
The trailer made the movie looks really good. It also showed that movie will have some comedic elements as they showed Diana trying to “blend in” with early 1900s London while carrying her sword and shield. It also showed her calling London “ugly” due to her being used to the beauty of her home island. My only complaint with the trailer is that it showed way too much in it. Like what is DC Comics deal with long ass trailers that pretty much sum up the movie to the point it gives away the plot. The movie is coming out in June…I shouldn’t know the plot of the movie in March. I should have an idea of it but not the whole plot. I also hope that this movie isn’t as long as Batman v Superman because I don’t get time to sit there for what feels like a half a day. If you are going to make a long movie, at least break it up into segment movies. Saves me from wasting half a day and you can get that money for two movies. It’s a win-win for everyone.
I can’t wait for this “Batman v Superman II: Woman Wonder and the World War” to hit theaters on June 2. I also can’t wait for the movie to hit DVD and Blu-Ray because I’m cheap and don’t want to spend my life savings at a movie theater…it’s expensive af these days.
Oh, here’s the trailer for you to enjoy and partake in:
