Cool Videos: Fan-made Wonder Woman trailer shows the character's onscreen potential

Sep. 30, 2013by:

Another fan-made Wonder Woman trailer has surfaced (here's the first), not only pitting the Amazon warrior against a bunch of men with guns, but also a giant about to attack her homeland. It's a very well made trailer/sizzle reel that shows the potential of a bigscreen Wonder Woman film, which fans (and filmmakers) have been dying to see for years. With the upcoming BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN coming in 2015 there have been rumors that Diana/Wonder Woman will make her first official appearance in the next entry in the DCU line of films, although no official word has been released.

With no DC-themed films seemingly planned for 2014, one has to wonder if the plan is to set up the Trinity (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman) in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, which would open the doors for both the invididual character of Wonder Woman and the collective JUSTICE LEAGUE. Whether it happens or not, it's fan films like this one that will continue to breathe down the neck of Warner Bros. and DC for as long as they hold out on bringing this bad ass chick to the big screen.

Enjoy:

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters on July 17, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Now that we know who is playing both Batman and Superman, who do you think would be the right actress to portray WW alongside Cavill and Affleck?

Underpowered Wonder Woman

Much like the Incredible Hulk, it seems like even fans have a hard time understanding Wonder Womans power levels. Where I liked the video, Wonder Woman would be throwing simple thugs 50 yards away after on hit, and smashing tanks, basically Thor power level. You want to get fans interested in the character, show her full strength.

Nice job.

Good little clip. Cant throw a spear like that even with super strength. If they do make a WW movie i hope they stick with 3 main things: dont make her super gorgeous. WW is rather normal in the face, not drop dead sexy. 2. Shes amazonian. Very tall. Im not the hugest comic book fan, but i know shes at least 6 foot. And 3, if they make a movie. Get an actress that knows how to fight for real. Not the fake hollywood fights that look worse than womens WWE wrestling divas fights.
I could care

Would really be great to have a large female superhero on screen. I'm sure if she's ever done for the big screen, her origin story would be totally revamped.

My DC's a bit rusty but isn't WW's power on par with Superman's? She should be destroying those clowns.

This trailer did not make me want to see a Wonder Woman movie. Not saying it can't be done, honestly I cant believe it hasn't been done already (they had Joss Whedon ready to make it at one point) but that just goes to show you how little faith Warner Brothers has in their DC characters. Chances are Marvel will beat them to the punch for being the first studio to make a superhero movie featuring a female. Hell knowing Warner Brothers they're probably wait for Marvel to do it and if it's

Where to start?

Yes, the video was nice as a type of "proof of concept" but I can see where some may view it as just really fancy cosplay. Who to cast? That is where the trouble lies, indeed. If Gina Carano had a few more acting classes, I'm sure she could pull it off. However, I'm not sure Kate Beckinsale would be all that great either.

WW is going to be a unique character to tackle, because even though her origin relates to the Greek gods (inspiration for most superhero stories) it has become the least

WW is going to be a unique character to tackle, because even though her origin relates to the Greek gods (inspiration for most superhero stories) it has become the least "realistic" in the cinematic universe. I think the character of WW would really shine in a Trinity storyline, but audiences would first need to be introduced to her in a solo film which may be a harder pill to swallow. If Joss Whedon wasn't tied to Marvel, I would say he would be my absolute, number one choice to write and direct a WW movie, because he handles strong female characters better than most other directors. It will definitely be interesting to see when and how WW finally ends up on the big screen.

The subject of making a Wonder Woman movie has made for some very interesting conversations for me and my friends. We are all fans of the comic book, but we have our doubts about whether the character can translate to film (or TV) and be successful. Most of us are old enough to remember Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman fondly, but we all agree that what worked on 70's television probably would get laughed at today (which is sad in a way). We keep asking, is it possible to create a female

Not bad for a fan trailer. Better than what WB has tried to do, that's for sure.

Personally, I'm a fan of the Wonder Woman redesign envisioned by Aaron Diaz from Dresden Kodak. [link]

It emphasizes her origins more, since she was literally a statue brought to life, so it makes sense that she'd have marble skin. And a "sword of truth" is both cooler, and more historically accurate than a lasso - which wasn't even a thing in ancient Greece.

I can't take this seriously

If we're going to take a modern day Wonder Woman seriously, the outfit really needs to be updated. No one's going to believe that a wafer-thin female in a mini-skirt or one piece swimsuit is tough enough to do what Wonder Woman can do. To be believable, she needs to look like Gina Carano, except a little taller. After all is she not Amazonian. Please get someone who can act.

Not a fan of the soundtrack, but that did work *slightly* better for me than the Uwe Boll-esque "Wonder Woman vs. Nazis" clip that was posted here some months back. A Wonder Woman film does have a lot of potential and I don't think it's a difficult story to tell. The animated movie worked brilliantly. Focusing on the element of a warrior new to man's world in a way that isn't a comedic fish out of water story, coming into her own as an ambassador and eventually defending this society she's not

KATE BECKINSALE!!!

She would be the PERFECT Wonder Woman. If you don't believe me, go check out the Total Recall remake. She was so bad-ass in that movie!

But this is seriously awful. Aside from some impressive visuals, this video is only hurting the cause of eventually getting a Wonder Woman movie. Ridiculous.

For film, unless they want to go camp, the character needs a complete re-do from top to bottom. There is no other choice. It needs to be more Xena in my opinion. Unlike the ridiculousness of Captain America, where they were able to address the silly getup as a marketing ploy, (and still comes off silly) there is no getting around the silliness of the current costume.

Title because it won't let me submit without one.

I don't think the potential for slick-looking action scenes is WB's concern. There's no real story or legitimate character development in that short, therefore it does not prove that a fully realized Wonder Woman feature would not come across as the kind of 'silly' Warners fears. That's not to say I wouldn't love to see a WW movie. It'd work, and most of us know it (yes, especially after Thor). I would have been at a WW movie on day one had it been the Joss Whedon/Kate Beckinsale pipe dream

The scene of Wonder Woman at home bought home just how much faith Marvel have in their brands. To bring Thor to the masses...was not easy....but they did...and it paid off for them. I believe Guardians of the Galaxy will succeed for the same reason. I don't know if it's because it's not DC calling the shots...but WB's. We always go on about WB's doing this...or doing that ... never referring to DC....is that the problem? That said...and as critical as I have been with WB's... let's

We always go on about WB's doing this...or doing that ... never referring to DC....is that the problem? That said...and as critical as I have been with WB's... let's remember that Marvel have yet to show the bottle to bring a female A lister to the table. If Marvel are afraid...WB's reluctance must be understandable. Moreover, given that they've done so bad to date on getting their cinematic universe together...I'd hazard a guess that they're petrified about it. Still, WB's have taken such a beating in this...bringing a female A lister to the table before Marvel and doing it well...might be their only shot of getting one over them. By the way...I really liked the the woman playing Wonder Woman....loved the character's look too.

That's how you do a Wonder Woman movie! Make it in the same vein as Thor: mystical home world stuff with her traveling to our world! And the outfit was cool! People (even me!) have been asking and wondering how her costume should be (classic vs something more modern) and this one works for me!!!

Anyone who thinks WONDER WOMAN would be tough to make

hasn't seen the 2009 DC/Warner Premiere animated film. Actually, they should put Bruce Timm and the WP gang onto the movies: they'd be a lot better for it.

EDIT: Odette Annable for Wonder Woman. She has the look, the chops and the physicality.

Sweet

Cool video. I'd really like a solo Wonder Woman film, but it's such a strange character, with all the gods and goddesses, it might be better if it didn't fit into the JL films (tho I'd still miss her). I think there was a time when Sandra bullock would have been perfect for this, but now I really can't think of one actress, and the only actresses that have done any or much recently is the chick from haywire and the last fast movie (gina carano?) who wouldn't be any good, the 2(?) underworld

All the other ones are in the marvel universe, or played catwoman In TDKR. Although, I'm sure I'm forgetting a ton and you all are about to tell me. But she def needs some action chops and just acting chops but maybe the actress can surprise and show she's capable of being physical like Hathaway (of course I have no idea how much Hathaway and those actresses and actors actually have to do touch wise). With such a hard time with female centric character action films (Catwoman, elecktra, tomb raiders - though most are straight up bad), I wonder if it'd be better to go with an unknown actress or vice versa.

Nicely done. I suspect in the near future a vast amount of independent films will be equal or superior to studio films and available to the general public. What do you expect when colleges and universities generate a high turnout rate of talent for the film industry year after year (for the last 40 years)?

very well made

was not cheap looking at all, I still think the character will be tough to do and if you dont do the whole invisible plane and truth lasso thing, then you are not being true to the character and its essentially not WW at all, so if you can somehow make that corniness work with a mature slant to it, it might be OK.
