Upcoming film : WONDER WOMAN


New publicity still from the upcoming WONDER WOMAN film project (a spin-off of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN film). Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman. That's Robin Wright on the far right. The WW universe is set in the world of the fabled Amazons. This is sorta like a recreation of the Amazon, even though some of the costumes look like something someone would rent for Halloween. An authentic film about the Amazons has never really been made. Amazons have made appearances in films like HERCULES (1958) or THE LOVES OF HERCULES, and there've been plenty of cheesy soft porn films on them during the 1970s and 80s but never a big production dedicated solely on them.

I'd love to see that, a movie about the real Amazons. Some years ago I read Steven Pressfield's "Last of the Amazons", which I remember liking (though not as good as Gates of Fire). I also picked up his book about Alexander the Great, but soon got irked by some of Pressfield's politics...

Unfortunately I am not very optimistic about the 2017 "Wonder Woman" movie. Films based on comic books are usually disappointing.

This one seems to have an especially hokey time travel element (Wonder Woman is five thousand years old!).

I agree that a first rate film about Amazons and Ancient Greeks has yet to be made.

I gave "Batman v Superman" a pass, but I'll check out this one, just because of the subject matter. It looks nothing like the original comic book, but that's not to be expected from a DC movie. I hope this will feel like a stand alone film.
