It's A Wonder

This past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con (which spotlights every form of entertainment but comics), Warner Bros. gave us a sneak peak of actress Gal Gadot as  Wonder Woman from next year's Batman Against Superman: Giant Monsters All Out Attack or whatever the hell it's called. Say, do you suppose Gal Gadot's brother is named Guy? Hoo boy, I got a million of 'em.

Overall, she's not bad. Much better than I expected from the company that robbed Superman of his red undies. It's a bit too Xena, Warrior Princess, but I definitely recognize her as Wonder Woman.

On the negative side, because this is a DC movie, any hint of color in her outfit is verboten. It's a drab, joyless affair in muted bronze and brown.

At least she's not wearing slacks, like this bullet we dodged a couple years back.

DC also released the first photo of Ben Aflac, er, Affleck as Batman. If you squint hard, you can almost faintly discern a human face amidst all the blackness. Why in the name of Stan Lee's Toupee must all these DC movies be so dark and grim?

Meh. I've never really been a fan of Batman (outside of the 1966 Adam West version) anyway, so I honestly don't much care one way or the other what they do with him.

I do find it odd though that he actually has furrowed brow lines molded into his cowl. That's gonna be one moody-assed Batman!

On the other end of the spectrum, Marvel Studios was also at the Con, and released this pre-production image from next year's The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Just looking at this thing makes me squeal like a little schoolgirl. I absolutely cannot wait for this one, and I'll knock down anyone– kids, seniors or the be-crutched– who gets in my way. You've been warned.
