Wonder Woman (trailer)

WW's power levels seem different from when she fought Doomsday. Mostly an impression so far. She might get a power up in the film.

Her accent makes adot sound like an emotionless actress. Or maybe it ain't the accent.

Even with great musical theme, I'm not seeing anything different from other action flicks. Remove the WW brand and what is left?

This looks so good. I'm pretty stoked for this one. Next summer, huh? That's ages away!

That's a good trailer.

But... I'm still pretty wary of anything the DCEU has to offer. Suicide Squad had some fantastic trailers but it turned out to be a bust.

I want this film to be good. But after getting burnt by Batman v Superman I'm taking a wait and see approach.

Heh, there's about 100 years in-between the story in this movie & BvS. Plenty of time for a power set to change.

Looks good to me so far.

Trailer looks good, gives a broad brush over of what to expect - and in slow mo too

WW's power levels seem different from when she fought Doomsday. Mostly an impression so far. She might get a power up in the film.

I'm not sure what you mean here. In BvS we saw her shield block a massive heat vision blast, do her super leap and go sword to claw with a mutant kryptonian. In the trailer we've only really seen her do awesome scissor kicks and powerslides, which to me isn't anything considering she's the daughter of Zeus.
I suppose there is the golden lasso and the tricks she is able to achieve with that, which looks awesome (pity they couldn't have had Slipknot do some similar tricks before his head exploded :()

Really the brand is what makes WW anyway, cause well other than looking good in a bikini and awesome armbands she isn't particularly special compared to other action heroes (okay I'm discounting the fun backstory as thats a setting thang rather than an action thang).

As to the setting I am wondering how they are going to handle the complexity of WW1 and its various blocs, I'm hoping they don't take the easy route of having the Kaiserreich be one dimensional 'proto-Nazi's', but then they might not have time to do that justice (at least until the extended cut is released).

Yawn. That Hollywood shows Germans as Nazis in WW1 doesn't really surprise me. You cant confuse the audience after all. That they manage to attack Paradise Island for whatever reason is also rather strange both because of the "protected by the gods" thing and as Germany had no bases in the Mediterranean and played a very minor role there. There were probably more Japanese warships there than German.

And why where the people so astonished and afraid by Superman again when they had a demigoddess among them for now nearly 100 years?

Well perhaps the DC MO ie verses history differs a bit from our real world version . That'd be my guess. You know, seeing as there's apparently an Amazon demi - goddess involved & all....

And wasn't it made clear in BvS that WW had not been publicly active as a hero for years? She WAS trying to keep her ID a secret.

That is sort of my point. She got hit by Doomsday, shrugged it off, smiled and jump right back in the melee. In the trailer she can't stop a bullet from killing/wounding her friend and needs the bracers to deflect bullets. Doomsday's punch > bullet.

I suppose there is the golden lasso and the tricks she is able to achieve with that, which looks awesome (pity they couldn't have had Slipknot do some similar tricks before his head exploded :()
Maybe she doesn't get it right away. During the trailer she seems to fly and get hit by lightning. Maybe a power up? If not, her power level fluctuates too much between BvS and WW. But this is just a trailer, so I agree it is early to say that with certainty.

Really the brand is what makes WW anyway, cause well other than looking good in a bikini and awesome armbands she isn't particularly special compared to other action heroes (okay I'm discounting the fun backstory as thats a setting thang rather than an action thang).
Marvel Studios (those rasquels) have done good films with some rather bland superheroes. Mainly by dipping in genres other than action.

Her shield got hit by Doomsday's heat vision. Her bracelet gets hit by a bullet. I'm not seeing any inconsistency here. Her shield is stronger than her bracelet, clearly.

I don't recall seeing her punched by Doomsday, but I don't remember that fight in much detail. Maybe she did; I'd have to check.

And yet the government would know about her. Didn't look so in the superman movies.

I expect Waller knew about her. And Luthor did. Need-to-know. In Man of Steel, that general wasn't on the need-to-know list. And superheroes are pretty good at being better than governments at everything - it's the genre.

1) You seem to be really stuck on this thing about her seeming stronger in BvS than in the trailers we've seen so far.
If you're right? Then what about 100 years worth of XP gained can't you fathom?

2) Sure, Marvel has pulled off good stories by dipping into other genres. But DC? It could be argued that they're still working on the action part....

Maybe it is my imagination. Maybe she gets an artifact that increases her power between both films. Maybe it is bad writting.

Action? Lest start with the lighting.

so true :(

but to be fair they did hint and some espionage fun between Bruce and Diana during Lex's party. Of course they then glossed over the whole thing which might have been what saved it. I'd love to see a lot more of and espionage vibe to the WW movies
(NB how Gal Gadot go in the Keeping up with the Jones?)
 

In the trailer she can't stop a bullet from killing/wounding her friend and needs the bracers to deflect bullets.
It looks like she wasn't paying attention enough or was moving to defend Trevor as the bullet flew pass, mind you
guns aren't a thing on Paradise Island.
AFAIK, She has always used the bracelets to deflect bullets and yes they are bracelets as opposed to bracers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Woman's_bracelets

It looks pretty good but I am worried about Gal Gadot in the role.

why are you worried about her?

Like Arnuld in Terminator I think Gadot is well suited to this role - a centuries old princess is going to be an outsider who comes across as a bit aloof and different to the mundane people around her.

and so far Gadots expressions have been a good match for the emotion/action she's involved in

Isn't her being the daughter of Zeus the New 52 version of WW? She doesn't need artifacts there as half goddess.
Maybe in the comics, but we do not know much about the movie version of WW. Amazons might be aliens for all we know.
