What if Batman vs. Superman had been made in the 1980s?

16 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 With the anticipation building for next month’s release of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, we thought it would be fun to speculate what it would have been like if a version of this film had been made 30 years earlier. How would this project have looked if it was made with Christopher Reeve, Adam West and Lynda Carter?

 In 1980, Christopher Reeve--generally considered the best Superman of the big screen--starred in Superman 2, the successful sequel to his earlier blockbuster Superman: The Movie (1978). The box office windfall of that film guaranteed that Superman would fly again on movie screens. (He ultimately made two more sequels.)

 Only a year before, Adam West had reprised his career-defining role of Batman in the mini-series Legends of the Super-Heroes (1979). He’d originally portrayed the caped crusader in the TV series Batman, which ran from 1966-1968. West additionally supplied the voice of Batman »

Batman v Superman trailer remade with Adam West, George Reeves and Lynda Carter

7 February 2016 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

YouTuber Leo Curbelo has recreated the latest trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, albeit using footage of Adam West from the Batman TV series, George Reeves from Adventures of Superman and Lynda Carter from Wonder Woman. Check it out here, via Comic Book…

And here’s a side-by-side comparison of the trailer and the fan edit…

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Lynda Carter Will Not Appear in the New Wonder Woman Movie

25 January 2016 10:32 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

For as long as I can remember, comic book movies have been all about the Easter eggs and homages. In every Marvel movie, you can rest easy knowing that you'll be seeing comics legend Stan Lee in some capacity, and Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy is full of little hints to the source material (including, but not limited to, the whole "Robin" reveal at the end of The Dark Knight Rises). It's a genre of films embedded in the decades of history from the comics, and while for your average viewer it's no big deal, us geeks can't help but smile at the small details.

For the upcoming Wonder Woman flick from DC and Warner Bros, it's been speculated for some time now that Lynda Carter, who some may remember played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV series, would be making an appearance of sorts. And why not? While many of »

Lynda Carter won’t cameo in Wonder Woman

25 January 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Lynda Carter indicated that she’d be open to an appearance in Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman movie, should she be offered ” a piece that meant something”, as opposed to a walk-on cameo.

Well, it seems the former small screen Wonder Woman won’t be making an appearance alongside Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess after all, with Carter’s publicist telling The Washington Post that she isn’t in the film, but “wishes its success.”

Lynda Carter Won't Be In "Wonder Woman"

25 January 2016 4:38 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The most iconic screen incarnation of "Wonder Woman" so far has to be the 1970s live-action TV series version which turned actress Lynda Carter into a household name.

With the new Patty Jenkins-directed standalone "Wonder Woman" movie currently in production, there was hope that Carter might make an appearance in the upcoming film opposite the Dceu Wonder Woman being played by Gal Gadot. Carter herself previously indicated she was open to the idea so long as it was a role of decent importance as opposed to just a cameo.

Behind-the-scenes it seems a deal couldn't be worked out as Carter's publicist has confirmed to The Washington Post that the actress would not be playing any part in the new reboot.

Whether there will be any future involvement for Carter in the "Wonder Woman" franchise has yet to be seen. Carter has expressed enthusiasm for the new incarnation of the role she made famous, »

Will Lynda Carter Be In Wonder Woman? Get The Update

24 January 2016 8:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the biggest questions about DC's new Wonder Woman film is whether or not Lynda Carter, the original Wonder Woman herself, would be making an appearance. While she was open to being a part of Patty Jenkins' 2017 would-be blockbuster, it looks like it's not to be . as she's been announced as a non-participant. In an item that was recently run in The Washington Post, Carter's publicist revealed that the legendary actress would not be playing any part in the new reboot. This comes after a long period of speculation, which was partially stoked by Carter herself. The actress had always said that she wasn't opposed to playing a part, but wanted to have a role of moderate importance that didn't wind up being just a small scale cameo. It simply looks like Lynda Carter turned down the film not for any negative reasons, but merely because if there »

Watch: First Look at ‘Wonder Woman’

21 January 2016 2:10 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Warner Bros. unveiled early footage of its big-screen adaptation of Wonder Woman on Tuesday.  Gal Gadot stars as the Amazon warrior in the superhero’s first origin story based on the original DC Comics. Gadot said audiences can expect to see Wonder Woman, also known as Princess Diana of Themyscira, come of age, learn her history, and understand her life’s mission. Wonder Woman is known for her strength and speed, and trained her whole life for war. “The greatest thing about Wonder Woman is how good and kind and loving she is,” director Patty Jenkins said in the clip. “Yet none of that negates any of her power.” The darker tone thematically and visually presented in 2013’s Superman reboot “Man of Steel” is evident in the initial scenes from “Wonder Woman.” Both films seemingly complement one another in the DC superhero universe first established in “Man of Steel.” Wonder Woman »

If you're a fan of Wonder Woman, the first footage should have you Really excited

21 January 2016 9:07 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wonder Woman. Everyone knows her name, but ask Joe Q. Public to list what they know about her and things usually go off the rails pretty quick. Unlike her counterparts Superman and Batman, the Princess of the Amazons hasn’t had as much luck* getting a toe hold in public consciousness. Outside of Lynda Carter’s run as the character in the 1970s, Wonder Woman hasn’t had much of a screen presence. That all changes in 2017 as Gal Gadot steps up to play Diana Prince. *Not luck so much as executives shying away from Wonder Woman for a variety of reasons. Girls are scary, yo! Bursting onto the comic book scene in 1941, Wonder Woman was the first female superhero with her own comic and only the second woman Period to get her own title. The first went to Sheena, Queen of the Jungle back in 1937-38. Created by William Moulton Marston »

Atlantic one of the best defenses of Carol's 'coldness" that you'll read. And as I've been saying since October... "If this is chilly, bring on winter."

Awards Daily has the nominations for the Canadian Screen Awards with Room and Felix & Meara (Canada's Oscar submission) leading the way. Perhaps Canadian readers can tell me about this one: How is it different than the long running Genies? 

Comics Alliance Wonder Woman get a "brassy" logo... which looks exactly like how you'd expect since that W on her breastplate is fairly iconic

Pajiba Wonder Woman has also released a couple of very brief clips including a campy look "disguise" will glasses that will remind you instantly of Lynda Carter librarian sexy look on the TV show.

New "Wonder Woman" Set Pics, Tone Talk

19 January 2016 7:32 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Chris Pine has spoken some more about the upcoming "Wonder Woman" movie currently in production. Whereas last week he discussed his character and the film's World War I period setting, this time he talked to E! Online about his co-star Gal Gadot and her take on the iconic superheroine:

"Gal Gadot is beautiful, so talented, strong and the story is really one I think that needs to be out there. The simple fact of the matter is it's about a woman who's so strong with such physical ability that she could kick such ass but really at the end of the day leads with an incredible amount of compassion and love and hope for humanity and I think we need a lot of that right now."

Pine was also asked about the chances of original 1970s TV Wonder Woman, actress Lynda Carter, making a cameo. He responded: "If I could tell you that I wouldn't, »

'Wonder Woman': Chris Pine Hints at Lynda Carter Cameo

17 January 2016 6:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Wonder Woman started production in November, the movie has been shrouded in secrecy, but we have seen a handful of photos and videos from the set. While the main cast members have been confirmed, some have wondered if the original Wonder Woman TV series star Lynda Carter would be involved in the production in some way. While promoting his new movie The Finest Hours, in theaters January 29, Chris Pine was asked if the actress would have a cameo role in the movie, but he wouldn't say one way or another.

"If I could tell you that, I wouldn't, but I can't."

Of course, it's possible he's being so secretive because the actress does in fact have a cameo in the movie, but she hasn't been spotted on the set yet and her appearance has not been confirmed. The production recently cast Connie Nielsen as Wonder Woman's mother, »

Chris Pine Talks Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman And Possibility Of A Lynda Carter Cameo

16 January 2016 2:23 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

What makes Gal Gadot the right choice to play Wonder Woman? "Gal Gadot is beautiful, so talented, strong and the story is really one I think that needs to be out there," Chris Pine says in the video above. "The simple fact of the matter is it's about a woman who's so strong with such physical ability that she could kick such ass but really at the end of the day leads with an incredible amount of compassion and love and hope for humanity and I think we need a lot of that right now." That sounds pretty much perfect and exactly what pretty much everyone has been hoping this movie will be. The Star Trek actor didn't go into any specifics about the plot of Wonder Woman of course, but when asked about the chances of Lynda Carter showing up, he did drop an intriguing tease about the chances »
