Have to admit even though I loved Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I was worried about the direction of the WW movie. The constant negative online articles and comments decrying the direction of the film (and the DC movie universe in general) overwhelming my initial excitement. But the trailer from Comic-Con alleviated some of my doubts, promising to introduce Diana and the Amazons while telling a serious, action-packed story.
I understand many people already have decided the DCU movie universe isn’t for them or just prefer the Marvel Universe. That is cool. We all get to have an opinion, but to me (and my three sons) this film looks like it could be a great one, reminding us of Captain America: The First Avenger (which we all really like to this day), mixing up the old school feel (World War I instead of World War II) with the cool superhero themes (The Red Skull and Tesseract with Cap; Paradise Island and Amazons for WW) that we love.
Will the movie live up to my higher expectations? Who knows. But it definitely is on my “To Be Watched” list now. Before the trailer, Wonder Woman the Movie was a “Wait and See” film. Let us hope the creative team behind this one gets it right, because Wonder Woman is too important to the DCU not to hit this one out of the park.
