So I've been binging THAT 70s SHOW on Netflix the last week (eight seasons takes a while), and it brought back a lot of nostalgic memories.

Now, I've made my excitement and anticipation for WONDER WOMAN known many times before. And while I still have misgivings about certain things (I'm iffy about setting it in WWI, I don't like the idea that she quits at some point), just seeing Diana kick ass and take names in the various cool trailers has eased a lot of those problems for now. And the great preview...
