Diana lives the normal life among mortals in the 80s : she maintains her low profile by curating ancient artifacts, and only performing heroic acts incognito : but after the magical Dreamstone goes missing Diana will have to come out from the shadows to save the world we know from the greed and cunning of Max Lord and the evil Cheetah : WW84 sees it’s director Patty Jenkins reunite with stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine for yet another round of insanely seductive superhero fun that may lack the 80s vibe I was hoping for but delivers everything else from it’s Lasso twirling energy, the enthralling Themyscira games that open up proceedings, the robbery at the mall is a hoot, Diana & Steve’s off the chart chemistry and the emotion it carries, Hans Zimmer’s thunderous score, THAT Golden Armor, Pedro Pascal’s crazy villain reminding me of Donner’s Lex Luthor and a spicey turn by Kristen Wigg as Barbara Minerva, bringing shy and ditzy to her character with screen owning brilliance : WW84 may not be quite as good as it’s trailblazing and much loved original but for me Patty Jenkins has delivered another bold spectacle that’s bright, infectious and hugely exciting to watch ★★★★
JUSTICE LEAGUE and WONDER WOMAN have landed some trailers and if your a fan of their universe and love the comics then you best sit your ass down and watch these two on repeat for the rest of your day – the Justice League looks lots of crazy badass fun, the introduction of Aquaman, Cyborg and last but not least The Flash (although I still prefer Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen) but that scene in the trailer where Bruce Wayne throws his Batarang is pretty awesome – all of this only whets the appettite for the planned Ben Affleck stand alone Batman movie whilst the trailer for Wonder Woman an origin story set back in World War I will blow your fanboy mind, Gal Gadot looks incredible and so comfortable leading the first modern female-led superhero movie, judging by it’s look, feel and high speed action we could be in for one hell of a ride next summer….
Justice League: Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Amber Heard and Henry Cavill – “Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions”
Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis and Danny Huston – “Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny”
