It’s been 75 years since William Moulton Marston brought DC Comics character Wonder Woman to life in ink. Between then and now, it’s also been an insufferable matter of time until the Amazonian warrior would finally get her day in a feature film of her own after decades of Batman and Superman televsion shows and movies, save for a three-season program that would make actress Lynda Carter a televsion icon.
Nonetheless, no one can say it’s been fair ride until now. Wonder Woman herself is finally getting her day as of next June and with Warner Bros. fully entrenched in their efforts to make the DC Cinematic Universe a thing following this year’s albeit wobbly delivery of Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. As such, it’s high time Marston’s creation got the respect it has long deserved, and with Monster helmer Patty Jenkins at the helm and showing out for this weekend’s events at Comic-Con International: San Diego – accompanied by the cast of next year’s WB/DC successions, Wonder Woman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, we now have trailers for both!
