Gal Gadot on the evolution of Wonder Woman from her solo film through to Justice League

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wonder Woman is releasing in just a few days, and will tell the origin story of Princess Diana, and her evolution into the Amazon Princess that fans know and love. However, we have already had a glimpse of Wonder Woman in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will be seeing her team up with her fellow DC heroes in Justice League. So what has the journey been like for actress Gal Gadot, and how has the character evolved from film to film?

“When I just started, the first time I played Wonder Woman, was on Batman v Superman, and it was current day, so I got to play the ‘end result’ of who Wonder Woman is,” Gadot tells Cinema Blend. “And I was very curious to understand and really go through who she is and how she became Wonder Woman. And finally on Wonder Woman we had the »

Wonder Woman comic book artist shares his thoughts on the film

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Artist Liam Sharp, who is the current artist for the Wonder Woman comic book series, has seen the upcoming DC Extended Universe film, and spoke to Forbes about his experience:

“There’s so much to love about this movie. Gal is particularly good at the guileless, fish-out-of-water humor, and she’s just extremely charming. It has -much like Indiana Jones – that Saturday morning matinee feel, adventure for all the family. And, in the end, it’s all about hope and love – and we could all do with a bit of that. Looking forward to seeing it again!”

This jives with the opinions of others who have been able to see the film early. Everyone, in particular, seems to really like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and feel that the movie strikes the right tone. Luckily, the general public won’t have to wait long to form their own opinions as »

Patty Jenkins shares her frustration on the DC rumour mill, says there are no deleted Wonder Woman scenes

27 May 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re now just less than a week away from the release of Wonder Woman, the fourth instalment of the DC Extended Universe, and in a refreshing change for the Dceu, there’s plenty of positive buzz for the movie among both fans and critics, with some even proclaiming it to be the best entry in Warner Bros.’ fledgling superhero universe.

It hasn’t all been plain sailing for Wonder Woman though, as there were a number of unsubstantiated rumours during the production claiming that the film was “a mess” – reports that director Patty Jenkins has now addressed during an interview with Collider.

“That was actually the most frustrating thing when somebody made up the rumor that it was a mess and I was like ‘Really? A mess?It’s the opposite, it is so steady, it’s been so even keel and steady,’” states Jenkins. “It’s been such an opposite experience. »

A lot of new trailers, clips, and exciting news in general dropped this week! We've got it all coming at you to start the weekend off right.

We got some sad news this week, Sir Roger Moore passed away. Before we dive into our usual roundup of movie news we must acknowledge Roger Moore's illustrious career in Hollywood. He played the iconic character of James Bond 7 times between 1973 and 1985 (Live and Let Die, The Spy who Loved Me, and Moonraker being the most notable). He was the title character in the successful TV series The Saint. Many may also know him from the comedy The Cannonball Run. His career lasted decades but came to an end today when he passed away. »

From ‘The Office’ to ‘Wonder Woman’: Get to Know Lucy Davis

26 May 2017 12:08 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

British actress Lucy Davis is best known for her comedic chops. You may have seen her in Shaun of the Dead or on the FX comedy series Better Things. But you probably know her as receptionist Dawn Tinsley on the U.K. version of The Office (you know -- the original version). “It brought new things into my life, opportunities that I hadn’t had before, doors opened that hadn’t opened before,” Davis tells Et of the role that first brought her fame.

Today, the 44-year-old Brit is taking on a new kind of role as Etta Candy, sidekick and best friend to Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, in the upcoming superhero film Wonder Woman. Davis' take on the role marks the first time Etta is making an appearance in a live-action feature film.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on her exit from Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World

26 May 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a week away from the release of the DC Extended Universe blockbuster Wonder Woman, which sees director Patty Jenkins becoming the first female filmmaker to helm a movie with a budget in excess of $100 million. However, Jenkins could have taken that honour back in 2013, had she not chosen to depart Marvel Studios’ own superhero project Thor: The Dark World.

Speaking to Uproxx, Jenkins revealed why she decided to step away from the Marvel sequel:

“I don’t think I could have made a good movie out of Thor 2 because I wasn’t the right director,” said Jenkins. “And I don’t think I would have been in the running for Wonder Woman as a result. And that’s one of the reasons why I’m glad I didn’t do it. Because I could have made a great Thor if I could have done the story that I was wanting to do. »

Wonder Woman is shot entirely on film, reveals director Patty Jenkins

24 May 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There are a lot of things that set Wonder Woman apart from the typical comic book movie. This is the first female-led superhero movie in over a decade, the first female director of a $100 million budgeted superhero blockbuster, and the very first cinematic solo outing for the Amazon Princess.

However, according to director Patty Jenkins, this movie has something else that significantly sets it apart from the rest of the pack. Talking to Cinema Blend, the director explains her choice to shoot the movie entirely on film:

“I’ve come up on shooting film and working on film for a long time. Digital has come a long way. Digital does a lot of great things. There are things I really like about digital, but they are not the same and there is some sort of strange myth that ‘Oh, you can do everything now on digital.’ Well if that was true, »

New IMAX character posters for ‘Wonder Woman’

24 May 2017 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing) and starring Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) in the titular role, Wonder Woman made her big screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this new film will mark her first time the character has headlined a solo feature – though you’d be hard-pressed to top Lynda Carter’s formidable run as the character on TV. However with a script by Allan Heinberg (The Oc, Young Avengers), I have high hopes for this being a monster of a summer hit – and it looks, from the reviews/comments I seen so far, it may well be!

Wonder Woman producer explains why there is no post-credits scene

22 May 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Post-credits scenes are all the rage these days. Made popular by the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a way to tease future installments, it now seems like every movie has some kind of post-credits teaser letting the audience know what’s coming next. However, it looks like the upcoming Dceu solo movie Wonder Woman will not be containing a tease of any kind following the movie.

Speaking to CinemaBlend at the Wonder Woman press junket,  producer Charles Roven explains why:

“I’m not going to say we’d never do one… There was one in Suicide Squad. But I don’t think that we want to feel that we’re forced to do something just because we didn’t in the past.”

Short. Simple. And to the point. It’s good to know that studios are willing to forgo a post-credits scene if they don’t think it will do the movie justice. »

Director Patty Jenkins discusses the villains’ motivations in Wonder Woman

22 May 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wonder Woman hits cinemas next week, and so far the buzz has been positive. Many early viewers have been praising the story, Wonder Woman herself, and also the action sequences. So, what about the villains? Even highly praised comic book movies have been criticized for having forgettable foes with little motivation. Recently, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins chatted with Collider to explain the villains’ motivations in the upcoming DC movie:

“The challenge was to see both the good and the bad of mankind. And, you know, Steve really ends up, like, representing the good and the complexity of mankind. But Doctor Poison and General Ludendorff are great examples of the bad of mankind. And they’re also great examples of how that is not conscientious choice to be a villain. Every villain has their belief system that makes perfect sense to them.”

Patty Jenkins is wise to take this route »
