'Wonder Woman! Untold Story of American Superheroines' SXSW Trailer
"They did not think that a woman could carry a show… well, we proved them wrong!" There's a new trailer (via TheMovieBox) for a documentary premiering at SXSW called Wonder Woman! The Untold Story of American Superheroines about the history, evolution and influence of comic book character Wonder Woman. It's a full-on 3-minute long SXSW promo for a film that goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Shelby Knox and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male dominated superhero genre.
