Gal-Gadot

Fast and Furious star Gal Godot is your new Wonder Woman. She’ll be starring alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in the upcoming Batman vs Superman film. Director Zack Snyder notes:

Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.

Godot, 28, is from Israel and has a background in both modeling and acting. She seems a bit skinny for the role, but she did spend two years in the Israeli army so she seems to have some kick ass qualifications.

What do you think—is Gal Godot the right fit for the first big screen Wonder Woman?

Fans have been doing everything short of begging Hollywood to make a Wonder Woman movie, but those pleas have been falling on deaf ears. Instead, we’ve got this beautifully shot fan film by Rainfall Films that has the star-spangled heroine fighting armed bad guys and giant beasts. It’s not a feature, but it’s a fantastic effort.

gina torres wonder woman

Gina Torres has played Wonder Woman before, but it was just the voice. Though it was neat to have her involved in the DC Universe Online game, many fans would like to see her in the role of the Amazon in a live action film. In fact, they’ve campaigned for it and many hold on to the dream. Vulture recently interviewed Torres about Suits and they asked her what she thought about the fan campaign. Her answer makes my heart smile:

You know, she is a superhero that has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is incredibly gratifying and heartwarming and wonderful that this campaign continues to have a life — even though it might be maybe three or four people that are keeping it alive. [Big laugh.] I love them! I don’t know how realistic it is. Of course I would love to do that. Who wouldn’t in their right mind? And why not? Well, there are all kinds of reasons why not. But yes, it is a fantasy. And it’s a hoot. It’s a hoot that every now and then, all these years go by, and people are still thinking that I could do that; I could make that wonderful and they will come and see it. I can’t even tell you how that feels.

I think she would make a stellar Diana, and I hope Hollywood listens to the suggestion one of these days.

Artist Dorez Romain has combined pin up girls, comic book ladies and polygons in a gorgeous and striking collection called Super Pinup Polygones.

Personally, I really like the Black Canary and Wonder Woman.

These Wonder Woman shorts are part of a series airing on Cartoon Network on Saturday mornings. They’re broadcast during the DC Nation programming block and they’re a different spin on a familiar character. I especially love her Wonder Woman-style muscle car.

Wonder-Woman-Kia-Sportage-front-three-quarter-view

The latest vehicle from Kia to join the campaign for We Can Be Heroes features the one and only Wonder Woman. We’ve seen the Superman and Justice League models so far, and I’m glad to see a female superhero join the ranks. The Sportage model was build for charity and has plenty of amazing touches.

From Motor Trend:

…the Wonder Woman Sportage adds an aero kit, and is finished in a red and blue paint scheme accented with silver stars, much like the heroine’s outfit. The gold trim on parts of the CUV represent Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth, while the Tiger Nose grille wears the Wonder Woman’s eagle chest-plate emblem. Blue headlight beams mirror her blue eyes, and the windshield is topped off with a tiara sticker. Chrome side panels represent her invisible jet, and the five-spoke wheels match the stars stamped on the side of the Sportage.

Open up the doors, and red upholstery is highlighted with blue LED accent lighting. The custom seats are embroidered with her logo, and the rear cargo area is decorated with stars and an eagle, along with a see-through panel that displays Wonder Woman’s bracelets, tiara, and her golden lasso.

The superhero car line up was built in support of We Can Be Heroes, a charity which helps families dealing with famine and drought in Africa.

Maybe if we all click our heels three times and wish really hard, we can turn this fan-made trailer into a real movie. It’s directed by stuntman Jesse V. Johnson and features Nina Bergman as Wonder Woman who kicks some evil Nazi butt. This isn’t shiny and pretty, but gritty and real and it would be incredible to see this as an actual movie.

DC April 1

WTF does WTF Certified mean? I wish I knew. All I’ve got is that it’s part of yet another gimmick from DC Comics to get readers to pick up comics. Hey, at least it’s not called a crossover event or a reboot.

Each New 52 issue released in April will be stamped with the above “WTF Certified” logo. DC is promising the comics will each have a “What the… ?!” moment that will leave readers shocked. Batman, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Superman – all of them have something unexpected coming at them.

I’m sorry, is that supposed to make me want to pick up more DC brand comics than the ones I already buy? It’s not working.

To tease fans, DC has shared partial covers for all the issues. They’re not releasing any details, but they did provide this list of clues to Buzzfeed:

• Booster Gold reappears while an entire team disappears
• One team is trapped in a bottle while another is changed completely
• Some heroes change their colors and other change allegiances
• Pandora battles to the death
• A close encounter of The Dark Knight kind
• There’s a new, old Creeper and some old New Gods.
• One hero quits, and another hero dies

Hmm. Well, at least they’re successful in getting the media talking about the release. Let’s see if it translates to increased sales.

See a sampling of the covers after the break.

Don’t ask me how skeletons and skulls make things cuter, but they do. Skelanimals are freaking adorable, and they only gain precious points when they’re mashed with DC Comics characters like Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman. I swear plushies weren’t this cool when I was little.

You can pre-order the duo now, and they’ll arrive in March.

Check out the Wonder Woman skelanimal after the break.
