    They've been very good at not showing Ares in the marketing. Hope they don't change that.

    But they did show him in the trailer, thy didn't show his final form but they showed his actor

    Nobody but nerds online know that character is really Ares in disguise. I meant his actual iconic form with the armor and red eyes.

    I didnt know who ares actor was until a youtube video told me

    On another note, I mentioned with DCEU still in its infancy, with Regards to Nightwing, Batgirl and Gotham related characters getting movies, they haven't done much if at all to let it be known these iconic characters exists.

    They have yet to fully acknowledge which Robin was killed.

    At the very least it would be dope and cool to see easter eggs/nuggets to let people know these characters are out there.

    Man of Steel teased possibility of a Supergirl or another Kryptonian existing (Clark finding open pod in Ship) but no follow up.

    Arkham Knight is a good example of doing this well, you know Superman, Lex Luthor, Black Canary, Green Arrow, The Flash, Huntress, Swamp Thing, Martian Manhunter, The Question, John Constantine, Zatanna, Atom, Birds of Prey, Batwoman and several other known DC heroes, villians and cities/locations exists in the Arkham Verse even though they don't appear in the games.

    Peep how they did it..

    DCEU should take notes, they started doing it a bit with Suicide Squad hopefully it continues with WW and Justice League.

    with the arkham games and especially Injustice, it feels like video game writers understand DC better tahn hollywood does.

    Wonder Woman: Early Reaction Compares Film To Captain America


    A movie theater executive says he has seen Wonder Woman and is enthusiastically comparing the film to Captain America. While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is kicking off the summer movie going season this weekend and is projected to attract massive crowds, it’s not the only superhero movie that fans are anticipating this summer. In less than a month, director Patty Jenkins’ hotly anticipated Wonder Woman solo movie starring Gal Gadot will hit theaters, and by this first reaction, the film seems set to become a hit.

    In a tweet posted Thursday, John Shaw, president of Theatre Management Associates, LLC, calls Wonder Woman “exciting & entertaining in every way.” Shaw is certainly an authority in the movie business: His Twitter profile lists the Kentucky-based executive’s credits, which includes “motion picture consultant, film buyer, theatre management, film distributor and marketing company.”

    Shaw doesn’t say where he screened Wonder Woman, but with his credentials, it’s pretty safe to guess he caught the film at an exhibitor’s screening for theater owners, who generally see films before the press for booking purposes. While more early reactions will obviously surface in the coming weeks, this first reaction will certainly come as good news to Jenkins, who finally got her crack at directing a superhero film with Wonder Woman at DC after parting ways with Marvel due to creative differences on Thor: The Dark World.

    If the positive notices hold up, perhaps Jenkins will get to see her ideas for a Wonder Woman sequel through after the Amazon warrior princess appears in the upcoming DCEU Justice League movies.

    Since Shaw’s reaction was limited to 140 characters, some minor questions remain unanswered with his tweet. Is he comparing the film to the first Captain America movie? That would make sense, since like Wonder Woman, the first Cap in a period origins film. The “$370M” reference Shaw makes seems to reference the worldwide gross of the 2011 film, which made $176.5 million domestically and $193.5 million in foreign territories for a worldwide cume of $370.5 million.

    If that’s Shaw’s estimate for the film’s global prospects, it seems on the lower side. Man of Steel, for example, made $668 million globally in 2013, while 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice (which introduced Diana Prince/Wonder Woman to the DCEU), finished its theatrical run with $873.2 million at the worldwide box office.

    Box office prognostications aside, this positive early reaction is sure to be embraced by Wonder Woman fans, who have been waiting for the live-action solo spotlight to shine on the iconic DC character since Lynda Carter starred in the classic Wonder Woman TV series in the 1970s. Coupled with the news Wednesday that Jenkins says she’s included “subtle” Easter eggs in the film that refer the ’70s TV series, Wonder Woman seems destined for a positive reception by fans.

    I'm convinced alot of these critics don't have the capacity to judge a film on its own merits.

    They only know how to compare each film to whatever it reminds them most of.

    Lazy journalism.

    The homogenous nature of a lot of films nowadays doesn't help. Everything is a reference or a nod or a throwback. Risks and uniqueness are almost a novelty anymore.

    the only thing it really has in common with captain america is the war setting. its not even the same war.

    also i didnt realize Cap 1 made so little money. 370 worldwide is nothing now.

    DC Sets 'Wonder Woman Day' Celebration for June 3


    The first weekend in June will belong to Wonder Woman.

    Not only does the iconic superhero have her own Warner Bros. movie opening June 2, but DC Entertainment has declared the following day "Wonder Woman Day," with more than 2,000 comic book stores, bookstores and libraries participating in a celebration of the beloved character. DC will partner with outlets including Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Walmart, Costco and Amazon for exclusive in-store and digital promotions, while Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products will also push the event.

    Comic book creators who have worked on the character, including Greg Rucka, Cliff Chiang, Marc Andreyko, Shea Fontana and Cat Staggs, will be participating in special Wonder Woman Day events to talk about their love for Diana, with details to be announced soon.

    To mark Wonder Woman Day, DC will release two special issues to be given away free by partners — a reprint of the first issue of the current Wonder Woman series by Rucka and Liam Sharp, and DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Day Special Edition, featuring an excerpt of the upcoming third book in Fontana and Yancey Labat's series of young reader graphic novels. Additionally, a Wonder Woman Day Activity Kit, including coloring pages and games, will be released digitally for download.

    Ahead of June 3, DC's online DC All Access series will launch a weeklong Wonder Woman Week of programming on May 29, highlighting the character's history with interviews with comic book and movie talent. A sale of digital comics centering around the character will also begin on May 30.

    Wonder Woman Day concludes DC's yearlong celebration of the 75th anniversary of Wonder Woman's first appearance. The hero debuted in 1941's All-Star Comics No. 8. In addition to the release of her first solo movie, June 2017 also marks the 75th anniversary of the first solo Wonder Woman comic book.

    Give it to Robert Zemeckis. He knows a thing or two about time traveling sci-fi.
