Harry says that the new animated WONDER WOMAN is a wonder!

WONDER WOMAN - Animated Feature!!!

Harry here... I just got finished watching the action packed HULK VS Blu Ray. The two abbreviated films were indeed fun. However, they were short films. Exciting, fun... but not as satisfying as a feature film. So imagine my joy when today I opened up my mail and found a very early... hot off the presses dvd of WONDER WOMAN, the animated feature that's due out March 3rd on DVD and BLU RAY. What I saw was a standard def version of the feature alone. None of the extras, and certainly not the early look at the upcoming GREEN LANTERN feature that will be on the eventual final product. Whomever is looking at making a feature film of WONDER WOMAN, they should look at this, the first animated Wonder Woman feature for inspiration. It is directed by Lauren Montgomery (SUPERMAN: DOOMSDAY) and she has out done herself with WONDER WOMAN. The film begins with an amazing battle with all sorts of bizarre mythological creatures and what the viewer would think was the Amazonians and Wonder Woman. The battle is furious and brutal. Head lobbings, arm dismemberments... well, you get the idea, it's a war. And the woman that I thought was Wonder Woman... that was Queen Hippolyta (voiced by Virginia Madsen) in her prime. She has that headband thing Wonder Woman wears and the golden lasso. It is... both are used more brutally than I've seen before. Soon, she's fighting the big baddie of the war, none other than Ares, God of War, himself. Ares is wonderfully voiced by Alfred Molina. The battle rages - and right as Hippolyta is to behead Aries, Zeus (voiced by U.N.C.L.E. agent, David McCallum) interferes and Aries is bound by arm bracelets that keep him from thriving on the energies associated with the suffering of war. At the same time, the women in Queen Hippolyta's charge are to be taken to a sacred secret island where she and the women with her would be kept safe forever in a tropical paradise. Essentially this is a Wonder Woman origin story, but the origin is told quickly and concisely - all while introducing us to all the wonderful characters. You have Keri Russell as Wonder Woman, Rosario Dawson as Artemis and the latest inhabitant to the island is crashed pilot, Colonel Steve Trevor voiced by Captain Malcolm Reynolds, who was played by Captain Hammer, but is known by geeks as Nathan Fillion. Nathan's Trevor is textbook Fillion. He's annoyed by Diana's assumption of male chauvinism - though he does admit to being a bit of a womanizer. But he isn't a joke character. Trevor is Wonder Woman's look at a modern man, not the brutal barbarian's that her mother knew. After Diana wins the mission to take Trevor back to his homeland - and track down Ares, who due to the usual bad guy treachery - is loose upon the world causing mayhem. And just wait till you see Oliver Platt's Hades... classic stuff. The film is more adult than you would expect. Nothing overtly wrong for a kid, I feel... but more than enough to maintain a story and a feature that would entertain all adult comic fans. This is really a great flick. As with NEW FRONTIER and DOOMSDAY, the DC Animated Video titles continue to be vastly superior to the Marvel entries. This is one I can't wait to see on BLU-RAY - if only so I can better appreciate the animation, but also I can't wait to check out all the special features, especially our first look at GREEN LANTERN!

    A Wonder Woman film could totally work

    by eggart

    but whoever does make it will very likely just screw it up. The film I'm personally waiting for is The Flash. Boring character, but talk about unexploited special effects potential. The mind reels.

    New Frontier

    by The Dark Shite

    Was pretty great in my opinion. Neatly done, tying in well trodden origin stuff with classic characters & delivering a pretty epic story. Although I must admit I thought Doomsday was much better & I LOVED Gotham Knight. Maybe that's a result of having my brain re-tuned to a Manga setting, as I live in Japan, but I really loved seeing the different styles & takes on the character. In my opinion, DC are on fire right now!

    New Frontier abysmal?

    by Oknight

    Yeah, OK. That gives us a good basis to evaluate a person's tastes. Mr. Willi probably won't like other DC ani projects. (I was rather severely disappointed by Gotham Knight -- very pretty and all but not as much meat as I expected)

    My only problem with new frontier

    by Aquatarkusman

    Was the abbreviated length. Like 70 minutes or something, with large chunks of the comic cut out? But great voice talent on this one, even if I can't imagine Felicity sounding like an Amazonian princess.

    In animation DC is king.

    by rbatty024

    Seriously, their direct to DVD stuff is better than the animated theatrical releases of other movie studios (with the exception of Pixar). If I worked at Dreamworks Animated or some other crappy studio I think I would have to commit Hari Kari for being so clearly outclassed by cartoons coming out on DVD.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 7:55 a.m. CST

    Oknight & Aquatarkusman

    by The Dark Shite

    That's probably the only problem with both New Frontier & Gotham Knight (Gotham Knight especially). I think of the two, New Frontier was better as a film, because it worked, despite missing stuff. It maybe won't please the purists, but as a film it stands up pretty well. Gotham Knight felt like the stories had just begun & ended too soon. I mean, personally I like Gotham Knight the most because I loved the different visual styles & fresh takes on the character & like I said, I'm kinda getting used to the Japanese style, which is sometimes kinda abrupt, so it was interesting to me (I know I'm in the minority on that one). Both suffered slightly from lack of longevity or depth for their own reasons, but I can't find too much to complain about with either of them.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 7:57 a.m. CST

    Yes, Virginia: New Frontier was terrible

    by Mr Willi

    And I liked the comic book series. The movie was the CliffsNotes version, rehashing certain scenes but taking out so much all context was lost. Gotham Nights wasn't very good and anyone who thinks Superman:Doomsday was anywhere approaching a good movie should stop watching movies.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:02 a.m. CST

    Long Halloween and The Killing Joke?

    by SpikeTBB

    Seriously? Where did you hear this, Cannabis Holocaust? I'd love to see them done correctly but at the same time I'd be worried at how watered down they would have to be. Either one of those would have to be aimed at adults and no bones made about it. No compromise for the kid audience or why bother at all? Slap a proper rating on it and do it right. I just can't see them putting The Joker's victimization of Barbara in an animated film. It would be pretty intense on a live action film that was rated R, unless the diluted it.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:09 a.m. CST

    Mr Willi

    by The Dark Shite

    If you're calling me Virginia, fuck off. What, is "Virginia" this season's "Newbie"? I've been coming here for years, just don't comment much. Besides, I'll say what I fucking want, where I want. Now to more intelligent comments. Doomsday WAS a good movie. At the very least because it pissed all over the expensive wankfest that was Superman Returns. It wasn't perfect, but it gave the fans what they want-Superman actually fighting somebody. Thanks for your superior knowledge though. & to make a point, let's compare New Frontier to The curious case of Benjamin Button. I'm pretty sure not many people went in there having read the book, but if they did, they'd be disappointed. Fact is, it isn't the book, but it is a fucking good movie. New Frontier took less liberties, stuck to more of the source material & made a film that worked in the context of a film, rather than the mini-series it would have had to be otherwise. Not bad.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:12 a.m. CST

    The first two Gotham Knight stories were terrible.

    by rbatty024

    After that it turned around, but if you skip the first two tales then you have a pretty good movie. I actually think Superman: Doomsday, although flawed, was better than the original story in the comics. <p> I agree they should stay away from The Killing Joke, but a Long Halloween adaptation could work. That comic wasn't nearly as disturbing as Alan Moore's vicious tale.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:17 a.m. CST

    Killing joke is impossible

    by The Dark Shite

    First it would be short.Ironically, (given the problems with other films already mentioned), that would probably mean adding more material. THEN there's the ending! How the hell could that work?

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:25 a.m. CST

    Batman:The Man Who Laughs

    by SpikeTBB

    Would be an excellent tale to adapt, I think. You wouldn't have to change much. I would not object at all to a vicious film based on The Killing Joke I just wonder how they would pull it off. They would probably have to compromise it on some levels. I know I risk getting flamed for this, but I really dislike the way Tim sale draws The Joker. Sale's masterful use of shadows and composition would look amazing as a cartoon but his Joker makes Plastic Man look normal. Jim Lee's Joker just makes me mad to look at him. There is stylized and then there is absurdity. I think Sale and Lee's Joker fall into the later.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:28 a.m. CST

    oops

    by SpikeTBB

    I jumped titles there with out a segue.Tim Sale's Long Halloween Joker art. But comic fans knew that I'm sure. Do you think they could do The Long Halloween justice in two hours, or would it be better served to make it an extra long feature? I'd love to see it done right.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 8:32 a.m. CST

    Although, the best DC animated is Mask of the Phantasm

    by rbatty024

    In fact, I'd go as far as to say it's the best Batman film put on the big screen (not to knock the others, since I love Nolan's and Burton's efforts). <p> Oh, and I agree that Jim Lee is overrated. What a horrendous decision to pair up him and Frank Miller on Batman & Robin: All Star. Talk about two artists who have never heard of the word restraint.

    i wasn't crazy about new frontier

    by IndyAbbey Jones

    wouldn't say it was bad, i just flt like had they made it 20-30 minutes longer it may have been one of the greatest superhero movies ever..i didn't care for doomsday i felt they really dropped the ball on that one, oncea again mainly for the length biut also for sondensing too many plots (although i think they did that because of the length issue<P>i absolutley loved sections of gotham knight, but didn't like others..heres hoping this wonder woman movie is good, i've been anticipatiing it for a long time, i hope its reallyu popular and convinces WB to put the WW live action movie on the fast track

    by The Dark Shite

    That would work! It would probably scare the shit outta the kids, but it would make one hell of an animated film, if not a live action one! rbatty024, I'm beginning to hate Frank Miller's stuff. & it has nothing to do with the negative vibes around the spirit. I'm just beginning to see a whole sado masochistic trend & looking back, it's one that's influenced the character of Batman for years in ways that aren't always so great. Sometimes a comic book hero shouldn't be a total prick.

    B&B

    by Gislef_crow

    While it's a more humorous take, and a homage to the 60s TV series, I'd recommend Brave and the Bold on Cartoon Networks (Fridays, 8/7 central, marathon coming up this week). Yeah, it plays a lot of stuff for laughs (their version of Aquaman is hilarious: he's like Marvel's 80-90s era Hercules). But last week they gave a better/dramatic sendoff to Ted Kord, the Silver Age Blue Beetle, then he got in Countdown to Infinite Crisis. They're hauling in obscure heroes (Bwana Beast? Kamandi? Bronze Tiger? You betcha) and villains. It's a more pure version of Batman than The Batman, even as they have fun with the concept. And they're nothing if not ambitious: they've got five heroes in the 1/30 episode (Batman, Atom, Aquaman, Elongated Man, Plastic Man). And they've got an upcoming two-parter featuring the Crime Syndicate. Yeah, it's more kid-oriented than the DVD movies, but it's still worth a look.

    The problem with Wonder Woman

    and translating her onscreen in today's "real" world is that, looking the way she does (hot chick in a flamboyant costume) no one would take her seriously.

    Re: Frank Miller

    by rbatty024

    I agree that Miller's brand of superhero infected many other series, especially in the 90s. Fortunately recent Batman books have moved away from the prick persona. <p> Miller himself is kind of a sad state. What was new and cutting edge twenty years ago is bland by today's standards. I can't think of the last thing he wrote that was any good. It's a real shame.

    by criticalbliss

    Give Miller his due. I defy you to say that by rereading the classics he's written. Lately, he's been phoning it in, but to say it diminishes his work is like saying the original Star Wars flicks "suck" because Lucas has fucked up the prequels. It's blatantly moronic.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 9:06 a.m. CST

    I didn't mean to imply Miller's old work is tainted.

    by rbatty024

    I just meant he's been coasting on it for years. I still love The Dark Knight Returns and many of his Sin City stories. I also think there was a period of time where everyone wanted to be Frank Miller and it led to some very bad comics.

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 9:10 a.m. CST

    ah

    by criticalbliss

    I can see that. Still, his early work would be incredible even today. But, yeah. He's been coasting for a while now.

    My favorite version of The Batman

    by SpikeTBB

    The Batman world of the Danny O Neal, Archie Goodwin, Steve Englehart stories. "The Joker's five Way Revenge" era. The Joker and The Scarecrow of this age are fantastic and sadistic. The Riddler was, for all intents and purposes, a terrorist.The Batman of this age was very much the detective and a philosopher. Introspective and idealistic and he had an authority well earned. He was also a genuine humanitarian. Not the asshole Frank Miller and his imitators have degraded him into. In an 1978 issue Batman and Dick Grayson's Robin got to bantering with each other and had a friendly good nature fight while laughing and calling each other "small fry" and "old timer". Very father and son relationship. Yet the sparing was precise and accurate. It was serious training. Could you see them doing that in the current versions of themselves? Nope, and the book is the lesser for it I think. Now most sparing practices are serious and intense and "your not good enough" and Batman being...well..an asshole. Maybe after he is done running around with Captain Caveman at the beginning of time, the real Bruce Wayne will return to Gotham as a decent human being again.

    by SpikeTBB

    I do need to add I've not been following all the Bat Family titles of late. Maybe he has been showing a more emphatic side and I missed it. An yes Frank miller's Dark knight Returns was a great series in and of itself. But The Batman of that story had damn good reasons for being the way he was, and it worked for a limited run issue story. But as The Batman in the current mainstream Gotham, i'd like to see him more noble and heroic than hard ass and disapproving.

    I haven't read the comics in a few months, but Paul Dini was doing a run on Detective Comics that humanized Batman. Morrison was also doing a run that had a more realistic Batman persona, but his series kind of lost its wheels. I think Batman writers are finally getting the message that the character can have demons without being a complete asshole.

    About Frank Miller..

    by The Dark Shite

    I love Batman: Year one. I think that's the one time that Miller's sensiblilites worked perfectly. By that time, I'd already read copies of the original stuff (I grew up in the 80's, so before then it was mostly 0'Neal hand me downs from my brother, or 0'Neal inspired).I loved the fact that he took the original Batman & applied a modern take on it, giving him a greater sense of reality etc. I thought it was great! But I can do without just about everything else he did with the character. He made him a bitter, nasty fucker. My wife says he's a child abuser (she's a woman & doesn't know shit about Batman, she's just getting by day by day, as the hormones gradually drip into an ever decreasing well of darkness & despair), but she's halfway right I think. Right now, I'm thinking of an interview I saw for The Spirit (still haven't seen the movie, probably never will). There he is, Frank Miller, in all his glory, being asked about his film. He sits there in his big Fedora or whatever the fuck it is & does a Hannibal impression, essentially saying, "Look at the girlssssss I've got in this movie."

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    <p>Correct me if I'm wrong on this (I have zero experience with Wonder Woman outside of the cartoons and the Jodi Picoult run), but wasn't Wonder Woman made from clay. . .? Or was that retconned?</p> <p>And Laserhead is right. The best DC animated stuff is without a doubt the JLU Cadmus stuff, and the finale with the Luthor/Brainiac hybrid. Even Batman: TAS is (at times, anyways) overshadowed by JLU. Although the show's finale was odd (Batman letting criminals get a head start? Completely out of character).</p>

And to do that, come on, you gotta rethink the costume. It may be iconic, but trying to do that on the live screen is just going to look corny. On top of that being an Amazon warrior its unlikely she is going to have many qualms about killing people which probably would confuse the average movie goer. <P> On the other hand, you can do a more acceptable take on the character but I cant see it being very compelling. Her costume is silly, and an amazon coming to America is kinda stupid. On par with Hercules in New York. <P> Her character is going to be damn hard to adapt properly.

    I did not like New Frontier much

    by Animation

    I didnt like the stupid villain/threat. WEAK SAUCE. I also didn't like the political parallel crap. "Hey, sure McCarthyism was bad, but just join with us anyway!" Whatever. I hated some of the characterizations. However, some elements and some characters were some of the most amazing I've seen. What a big mixed bag this film was. Also, I hated Lucy Lawless as Wonder Woman in New Frontier, because they clearly just had her read it straight up so that people would recognize it was her. That ruined my immersion. :)

    Open Letter To Warner Brothers:

    by Media Messiah

    The fans are ready for you to green light a live action Wonder Woman movie. There are plenty of great script ideas out there, so that would not be a problem. The key to the success of Wonder Woman will ultimately be found in the casting. If you nail the casting, you will deliver a successful film, or stand a good chance at it, anyway. <BR><BR>As Twilight and Titanic have demonstrated, there is a massive female audience out there ready to support Fem friendly (demo) blockbusters...they just need Hollywood to supply more of these kinds of properties, and to execute them correctly...meaning, with care (quality control).<BR><BR>As per the male demo, that is guaranteed. Males typically show up in force to support a blockbuster film...especially those with comic book super hero themes, and or, action. But, Wonder Woman will attract them, not only for its themes, and ultimate, blockbuster budget, but men will come to this film for the beautiful lead(s)...the actress(es) that will eventually assume the character roles in the film. Let me speak honestly, men are very visual creatures in terms of their attractions, and I seriously doubt that any average heterosexual male is going to have to dragged kicking and screaming to see a film featuring a female super hero who is half naked. Also, the male audience will be delivered by their female significant others, relatives (daughters, nieces...etc.), and friends. That audience is there, and ready to be tapped. <BR><BR>Lastly, a large female audience interest has been growing of late in respect to genre fantasy fair, with legions of women and girls supporting shows like Buffy, Xena, Lost, New Galactica, Farscape, Star Gate SG1, Firefly, and movies series such as Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings and the fore-mentioned, Twilight, not to mention video games and comic books. The audience is there, all you have to do is claim it, the success is a far gone conclusion. <BR><BR>To the fans, this Wonder Woman animated movie is a test by Warner...a fully animated storyboard to see how a live action Wonder Woman, with are the spoils of a blockbuster in terms of action and epic story arc, might play on screen. I'm guessing that this animated film plays very much like a live action film...and by design. Warner wants to get an advanced understanding of what a live actioner version of Wonder Woman might move, and how fan reactions might be to the various nuances of Wonder Woman, as presented in the animated film. This, proven by the fact that they made this animated movie...in the first place, is a good sign that Warner is finally ready to green light that live action film version of Wonder Woman, and I for one welcome it.<BR><BR>PS: To Warner--I know how to bring forth "The Invisible Jet" and make it work. It makes sense. I don't think anyone has ever been able to crack that nut, but I have!!!

    Superman: Doomsday was fucking horrid.

    by NinjaRap

    There's really nothing good to say about that movie - unless it was written by some kind of woodland creature, in which case I would be impressed that it was in English. But seriously, WHAT a piece of shit. New Frontier was the best to date, but it feels severely truncated - like there's a lot of detail that somebody left out. I never read the comic, and I'm guessing it's got a hell of a lot more info, because the random hopping-around and meeting characters for all of 2 scenes and shit, that was annoying. But it was still a good time, don't get me wrong.

    The costume

    by Rommel Catuncan

    I think the problem with the costume is mainly the pants or lack thereof. It has always seemed too 'modern' (as opposed to 'ancient'). Like workout spandex. <P> I think Wonder Woman has many parallels to Superman. So if they can get Superman right then they can get Wonder Woman right. <P> Aw...shit.

    New Frontier Wonder Woman

    by barry convex

    http://tinyurl.com/at4cdw From the late Emru Townsend's review of Justice League: The New Frontier - "The same comic/animation tension affects the visuals, too. A quick glance at the credits reveals the combined talents of the last sixteen years' worth of animated DC series, and it's all right up there on the screen. There's no resting on laurels here; although they've defined and refined a particular vocabulary, they're always pushing things forward. Everything in Justice League: The New Frontier screams 1950s, from the UPA-ish opening scene to the Saul Bass-ish title sequence to the many iconic Cold War-era locations, from Vegas to roadside diners. Colour design, compositions and staging are as sophisticated as the story's ideas. But for my money it all falls apart whenever I look at Wonder Woman. Darwyn Cooke's Wonder Woman is pure 1950's smoking-hot sexy with generous zaftig curves that convey life, passion and power. Meanwhile, the current incarnation of the Bruce Timm-derived style has become increasingly angular, and the two just don't fit. This tension affects all the characters to one degree or another."

  • Jan. 30, 2009, 11:10 a.m. CST

    They shouldn't change the colours

    by Rommel Catuncan

    of the costume. No way. I read that the creator William Moulton Marston actually studied which colours (colors) appealed to the eye and he found out it was red, blue and yellow. Superman has the same colours. You wouldn't change the colours on his costume would you (Tim Burton).

    criticalbliss and rbatty024

    by SpikeTBB

    Agreed. no Robin, no show tunes, man-purses, or Barbara Streisand. Your reading a bit to much into what I was trying to say which is probably my fault for the example I picked. I don't like that stuff either. Plus the annoying little side kick is something I have always hated with a fiery vengeance in any story. Yes, Batman is a loner and a Detective with problems. That's how he should be, I agree. There is no "the rest of us." Batman is a complex character with a long history and is constantly being reinvented. I hated the 50's and 60's version myself. But you don't have to have one extreme or the other. As I said, Miller's Batman in Dark Knight had damn good reason for being what he was. It was really the government fascist control that had turned all their lives so tragic. But in the recent years Batman has not been all that different than Lex Luthor. They evolved Lex to where part of his his motivation is stated to be the advent of man against the alien Superman invader and anything he does is justified no matter how immoral because it is in defense of mankind. But the ends do not justify all means.One of my favorite Batman moment of recent years was in JLA/Avengers where he spotted The Punisher shooting a bunch of drug dealers and broke his own non interference rule to pound Frank Castle's face in. He treated Punisher no different than the other criminals. Now, whether Punisher or Batman was in the right is a matter of personal choice.But I was just glad to see Bruce's personality coming through.Batman hates guns and doesn't believe in killing even for justice. He has a distinct personality, and a lot of writers final to display that. They just show him as someone who dresses up as a bat and hit people. rbatty, Paul Dini might be just the man to return Batman to himself. A good balance between the crime fighter who wnats to punish criminals and the man who wants to help people.

    Said it before and I don't think I'm wrong...

    by MCVamp

    Wonder Woman can't carry a solo flick. The best possible thing to do is make her origin the main subplot of a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. Surroud her with the rest of the DC "A-minus" team (Flash, Black Canary, Green Arrow, and Aquaman wouldn't be a bad mix) and you've got something you can market. Otherwise WONDER WOMAN: THE MOVIE makes just a little more money than ELEKTRA and Warner turns its back on non-Batman films.

    was Lex Luther's gay crush on Superman. I mean that's something I've never seen before. Of course, that could be original in a good or bad way. <p> Spike,if you read comics then I would definitely suggest Dini's recent run on Detective Comics. His stories became better as his run went on, and he even made the character of Hush (who is widely hated and with reason) somewhat interesting.

    Bob Cryptonight: The Costume

    by Media Messiah

    I have seen an ancient Roman-esque version of the costume before, with a skirt made out of leather strips which features silver stars on it. The yellow coloring of the costume, can just be a metallic gold. As for the red and blue...colored leather, or a colored tinted metallic chest plate would do, and I like the idea of Wonder Woman with her robe/cape. In the end, the outfit should look functional...but I would not go Matrix black with it, ala the X-Men, Hancock, and GI Joe. Look at Spiderman, they got away with that...why not this??? Same with Iron Man? It is all in the execution of the script, the direction, the dialogue, and the acting, as to whether people will embrace the willful suspension of disbelief. I mean, nothing could be more ridiculous than the setting of Star Wars, but we bought it...at least, with the first two films, because they were handled properly...and the same with the original Superman...or the great Rocketeer. They just need to cast a transcendent lead to play Wonder Woman, and resist stunt casting for names. They need a fresh woman (personality), probably an unknown, who just commands the screen as an actor, with a stunningly captivating look. There is this young woman who plays a dominatrix on the series Legend of The Seeker (red leather costume and all). She has those special qualities that one would hope to see in Wonder Woman. This lady is a beauty, a great actress, and a scene stealer. Now, I am not so concerned with height... rather, I am more concerned about getting the right person who can nail the role, from an atmospheric acting level, the type of woman that makes you fall in love with her based upon her projected charisma, intelligence, empathy...and strength...and that girl, has it.

    Animates comic movies

    by Mr.FTW

    WHile Hulk vs. is the best thing by far Marvel and Lionsgate have produced it is still far inferior to anything DC and Warner has put out. The animation on Hulk vs isn't even as good as that new Wolverine and the X-Men weekly cartoon. All the Lionsgate efforts look like they were cheeply and quickly animate in a low rent korean animation house. I'm not saying I didn't like it but come on. <p> Doomsday was cool as a story, where it failed was marketing it like it was a true adaptation of the Death of Superman. Doomsday was nothing more that a plot device to tell their clone story. Had they presented it as a story on it's own merits and not as an animated version of that story I think a lot more people would embrace it. As a story it was really good. They just shot themselves in the foot by misrepresenting it. <p> Gotham Kight was awesome and it was great to see DC breakaway from the stale Timm style for once. True some of the shorts were stronger than others but it was a cool idea. For all those who hated the anime style, what is your problem? You've had an animated DC universe based on that look for 17 years now. Even though it was anime there were a couple of the shorts that looked more comic book acurate than anything we've been given before. <p> For all the people who say New Frontier suck, I'm just curious as to why you think it sucked. New Frontier was an origin story for Hal Jordan and the formation of the Justice League. It seems like there are so many people who want everything to be "fill in the blank" SMASH. That only works for the Hulk and even then it wears out quickly.

    If Iron Man can work so can Wonder Woman

    by Continentalop

    For all talk of realism about Iron Man, in the end it was about a man in a hi-tech armor that can fly and powered by the nuclear reactor pace-maker in his chest he invented in Afghanistan. <p> I'm not knocking Iron Man, far from it. But it just goes to show how willing the audience is willing to suspend disbelief for comic book movies.<p> As for Wonder Woman's costume, I can easily see a solution but I vowed not to pepper these talkbacks with suggestions for studios ever since I basically pleaded with everyone to support the Penguin as the next Batman villain (and I still believe he could work DoctorWho?).

    Ragnar Danneskjöld & Media Messiah: Wow! Cool costume!

    by Bob Cryptonight

    That's really great! It keeps the traditional look, in a way, but sort of gets around the All-American Star-Spangled look that, I think, would tend to work against a "serious" movie (unless it was a period movie with WW being somehow tied to the USA war effort...which isn't the way to go, in my opinion). Personally, I wish Batman would have a dark grey outfit with dark blue cape and cowl and a more traditional utility belt (i.e. pouches for gear), too.

    A great Wonder Woman costume, indeed. They nailed the look, alright. Hopefully the good folks at Warner are reading our posts and check it out. Now, to Batman. The costume in Batman: Dead End is pretty close to the costume look you are describing, save for the fact that his cape is black, not blue, but he is dressed in grey and it looks absolutely great.

    Are they confusing Hades with Dionysus?

    by Drath

    A fat Jabba-like God is much more appropriate for the indulgent Dionysus than for Hades. I loved him in JLU. Hell, even the fire-head Disney look was pretty cool. This should be for the Greek Gods what Kirby's Thor did for the Norse Gods. Just my feeling. Don't know why DC and WB aren't better at making their comic book properties. Maybe it's all about the costumes? DC iconography mostly beats Marvel icons, you'd think they'd stop fucking with the part that works best.

    I think Timm is kinda stale

    by Bass Ackwards

    Writing & animating, and one of the bigger let downs of these movies for me is the resistance to break away from his style, which is just plain. The real spark of the DC animated verse seemed to consist of a team of writers from the BTAS days, notably Dini. With them out, pretty much everything from the Justice League on has been dullsville.

  • Jan. 31, 2009, 8:54 p.m. CST

    Timm only produced these movies.

    by Dingbatty

    This particular one was written by Gail Simone of Birds of Prey fame and the recent run on Wonder Woman, and was directed by a woman not connected to BTAS and JLU. These movies haven't been designed in Timm's signature style. They are simplified and angular, but that's because it makes animating them easier and cheaper. People calling for Fleischer style are actually arguing for rotoscoping, which is frowned upon in animation these days.

    by rbatty024

    Justice League Unlimited ended. The Batman was atrocious (in that entire series there was maybe one or two good episodes that I stumbled upon). I held out on The Brave and the Bold and decided not to judge, but after seeing three episodes I can tell you the writing is not there. Surprisingly, it is actually better than The Batman. It's not the 60s inspired animation that kills it, though, it's just the fact that they can't find truly engaging stories.

I would looooooove to see the slugfest between the new Ion and prime like it was in the books. sure hes a pretty thin villain, character wise, but something about him just makes me glee with joy everytime he ripps someone apart.

    Wcme: Brilliant Writing, Is Brilliant Writing

    by Media Messiah

    Being a sick fuck has little to nothing, to do with it. As my brother told me when I was in college, "Everybody, including women...especially women...are freaks. Once you wrap your head around that, you'll be alright." I'm still trying to deal with it, and understand that our society is full of hypocrites. The funny thing about that WW story is it is really saying that their is a fine line between rape and consent, at least in some or many cases. Were these folks metaphorically really under the control of the villainess... or, was it something each was secretly enjoying??? A similar question can be applied when people get drunk...and later say, "It was the alcohol that made me do it!" Like the married woman who met a guy in line at a baseball game recently, and had sex with him in front of dozens of cheering fans in a men's restroom stall. Was it the alcohol that was the villain, or the male taking advantage of a drunk woman...or was the alcohol an excuse, a cover for chosen behavior, or a wanted seduction??? They were engaging in sex acts for some lengthy time in that stall and according to the security officer who busted them, it was consentual.<BR><BR>That is the hypocrisy found in our society...when people don't admit to their own willful doings...and instead pass the buck onto others--making the rest of us feel like sick fucks for having an erotic thought...or thoughts, which are the norm of our species.

Books about seriel killers targeting women, that's what. Now, if you look at Twilight, or Interview With A Vampire, and Buffy...they all play on the same themes, Bad Boy males seducing females by force...and yet, the female secretly wants to be seduced, and goes along with it, that is the structure of these works, it is about the Forbidden Fruit. Even Twilight's cover art suggests the Forbidden Fruit aspects of this.<BR><BR>I'm not saying that real rape is wanted, in real life, I'm talking about the dark seduction by someone who is less than moral, and it is, at those times, upon those occasions, women like to fall back on the old excuse of "I didn't know what I was doing?", or "He made me!", or "It is his fault, I was duped". In the south when white girls got caught sleeping with black men, the excuse was, "Daddy, he raped me", leading to many lynchings. This is an historical fact. I even recall a case were a man walked in on his wife having sex with another man. The wife attempting to deceive her husband, claimed that the man broke in and raped her. The husband then shot him. She was later exposed for having a long standing affair with the man, who was killed.

So how do they instinctively handle it??? "Oh, I slept with him, but he took advantage of me." In that way, she gets to claim (brag) that she slept with a man, one perhaps she desires or desired (for his looks fame, power, etc.), while at the same time, being able to deny responsibility for the encounter, no matter how vulgar it was...and without running the risk of being called a whore, a slut, and so on.

She's bragging just like the male, but passing the buck...and claiming to be an innocent. Amy Fisher anyone??? I rest my case.<BR><BR>Lastly, I was on Perez Hilton's site recently, within the last week, and I openly asked women if they were interested in men who are misogynists. this was in a chat room about a cheating female celeb. All the females were patting her on her back for being a playa as they called it...or a pimp like the males...as they said. As per my honest question, I told them the reason I wanted to know was to better understand a female that just broke up with me. I was the girl in the relationship...meaning, I wouldn't lie to her, I was always where I said I would be...I gave her many, many thoughtful gifts, and I was the nice guy that women claim to want. That said, I have also heard the other side that women want a man who is a jerk and a rogue, so I asked for clarification and told them my motives...and I did this several times. Not one of them answered the questions I put to them...and in that way, they did ultimately answer my question...they are into no good men. It's instinctive cavemen stuff. The female believes that the more aggressive a man is, and the more domineering he is, the more he shows them that he is worthy of nesting with, as he is perceived as being a strong virile male, or even the strongest of the herd, even though the guy may just be crazy or putting on an act??? I'll end this conversation with this. I heard a study, about 2 years ago, saying that during a woman's monthly menstrual cycle, she will sleep with any man...anywhere, at anytime, it doesn't matter how lurid his come on is, or what he looks like, or his background, just as long as he approaches her on a certain single day of the month, her sweet spot...if you will? If you happen to be the guy who hits on her, and strongely...on that day of night, there is a strong possibility that she will immediately give in, and say yes, no matter how inappropriate your come on is. That is why so many guys who stop a woman on the street or at a club, and say "Hey baby, give me some pussy", get pussy...because, although 10 women might say no...you can bet, at least 3, or 4 of them are thinking "Yes"...and number 11, or 12, to pass your way, will say yes. It is just a simple law of averages before you run into the that woman, or women, who are in that sweet spot...1 day moment of their monthly cycle, where they will say yes to anybody who asks to fuck them. This is all animal instinct stuff, about procreation (making babies), whether one is produced, or not, due to birth control pills and what not, is another case, but these instincts are nature's trick bag...to make humans reproduce, having nothing to do with romance or love, just procreation. BTW, that study about the 1 day sweet spot, is real. Now you know why so many beautiful, and or, sexy women, are with thugs, absentee fathers, and ugly guys.

    What is scary about that study is this, you may be in a committed relationship with a woman...but if another guy hits on her during that period, and you are not around to defend your ground on that day or night,at that moment...she will cheat on you, whether you have been a good guy to her, or not, available, or not? And this seems to play into another study just released, about a week ago, called "The Marilyn Monroe Syndrome" where a committed woman who is perfectly happy in a relationship, will suddenly end it and take up with another man if see perceives that she can use him to widen her nest--meaning, if he has more money than her mate, more connections, fame, or power...she will leave him for the other man and build a new life with him. Not all women fall under this catagory, according to the researchers, but clearly they can, at any time, as proven by the first study I pointed to...and that is truly sad, and scary, when you think about it.

    1) I am not going to deny your talk but you really do sound like a confused man who is still hurt about someone else leaving him. Get over it. 2) You have WAAAAAAAAAY too much time on your hands. Get a hobby or something. Video games are pretty good.

    Is it just a problem with the trailer?

    by Royston Lodge

    Judging from the trailer, the animation seems kinda jerky and rough, like the framerate's too low. Is that just a problem with the trailer, or is it pervasive in the movie itself?

    So much better than Marvel animated

    by Powerring

    You have to hand it to a movie that has a beheading in the 1st 15 minutes. This movie rocks, and is is so much better than any Marvel animated to date it's not even scalable. Steve Trevor's character seemed like too much of a dense and lecherous individual to be a real pilot. Other than that...this movie owns!

    That's probably the only problem with both New Frontier & Gotham Knight (Gotham Knight especially). I think of the two, New Frontier was better as a film, because it worked, despite missing stuff. It maybe won't please the purists, but as a film it stands up pretty well. Gotham Knight felt like the stories had just begun & ended too soon. I mean, personally I like Gotham Knight the most because I loved the different visual styles & fresh takes on the character & like I said, I'm kinda getting used to the Japanese style, which is sometimes kinda abrupt, <p> so it was interesting to me (I know I'm in the minority on that one). Both suffered slightly from lack of longevity or depth for their own reasons, but I can't find too much to complain about with either of them.

    weak story

    by Redmantle

    weak, weak, and terrible voice work from Alfred Molina. Just wasn't buying it at all. The amazons and their culture were poorly realized- too ancient Greek to then all of a sudden have an invisible jet. They should have made it like Ellis did with his advanced amazons who while culturally greek, also had advanced technology. A mix of the ancient and futuristic would have been far more interesting. Wonder Woman needs a serious re-imagining before she can be brought to the Silver Screen. Even the animated screen. Just...quite lame. Steve Trevor is poorly realized as well. Too bad for Nathan Fillion... and that show Castle has "bomb" written all over it. I give it three weeks before it gets the axe.

    This Wonder Woman animated feature film...

    by jdrake

    was fantastic! LOVED the direction, voice casting, music, action...EVERYTHING! DEFINITELY the BEST DC animated film thus far! But what REALLY made it special for me personally was the big throw down between WW and Ares' assassin! I have a MAJOR fetish for female feet (as does my hero Quentin Tarantino)...and watching WW kick this creature's ass while barefoot was an INCREDIBLE turn on for me! She kicks off her heels and just goes at it in her cocktail dress! Then at the um...er...CLIMAX...she tears off her street clothes and finishes him off him in her WW outfit! suh-WEET! I always wanted to see that! JOY-gasm! But what's up with the typos? On the bonus featured interview about the film they interview Virginia Madsen and misspell Hippolyta as "Hyppolyte"...and at the end of the Green Lantern feature they post "ORIGNIAL Animated Film"...hire a proofreader STAT! It's all good, though!
