Cool 'Wonder Woman' Fan Trailer Feels Like a Female-Centric 'Thor'
Batman and Superman have seen various iterations on the big screen, but for some reason, Warner Bros. hasn't been able to bring the DC Comics heroine Wonder Woman to the feature film world. While the once thriving superhero found success on the small screen decades ago, the most recent attempt was a failure, and producers can't seem to figure out how to bring the character to life again. Well, one more attempt to drum up interest and at least give fans something to enjoy comes from Sam Balcomb, who spent most of this year putting together fanmade trailer that isn't amazing, but it may strike the right tone.
Here's Sam Balcomb's Wonder Woman trailer, via ScreenCrush:
Sadly, Balcomb went with finding a pretty face (Rileah Vanderbilt) to get into the suit rather than an actress who knows how to pull off action or any semblance of acting, and it shows in the trailer. One of the biggest issues with Wonder Woman is the practicality of her outfit and accessories in a contemporary world. A lasso and bulletproof bracelets are barely useful, and that outfit just doesn't make sense for a superhero like this. Honestly, the most interesting aspect of this trailer are the scenes in Wonder Woman's homeland Themyscira, which is where quite an epic adventure could begin before integrating the hero with Superman and Batman. Her story would almost be like a female Thor, and that sounds pretty damn good. Thoughts?
