I will admit that when I heard there was going to be a modern Wonder Woman movie I was skeptical, especially considering the track record of DC movies (I’m looking at your Batman Vs Superman) but I was very pleasantly surprised by Gal Gadot’s portrayal and Patty Jenkin’s direction (can we PLEASE get some more female directors Hollywood?) There’s still a soft spot in my heart for Linda Carter, but this new Wonder Woman kicks some serious butt. And this sculpture of her by builder manufacturajarema kicks an equal amount of said butt.
There's a lot of inspired building in this version of Wonder Woman by ToaLeewan. It seems super simple at first, but that's only because it's so clean. I'm sure we're going to be seeing a lot more of this lovely lady now that she's got her own movie in the works. And if we can just keep Zack Snyder from sinking his mediocre claws into it, it might be good.
This is truly another golden age of the comic book hero. While comic books themselves reigned supreme in the 50's, they've certainly had their ups and downs since then. But now all those heroes that kept our imaginations thrilled are making big screen appearances on a scale that would have scarcely been imagined just 20 years ago. These heroes are also enjoying a renaissance of public awareness and cultural significance that has nerds around the world overjoyed. And of course we're seeing an explosion of heroes in brick form, which makes me all kinds of happy. Like this awesome MOC of Wonder Woman by Tim Lydy, gorgeous.
It's no secret that there's a Batman Vs Superman sequel in the works, but I haven't revealed much more than that. There's been a few rumors, but I will neither confirm nor deny most of them. Well, Kathy Zuelch of Rooster Teeth fame appeared on AfterBuzz TV's The Voice Of last night and revealed that she is indeed going to be the voice of Wonder Woman in the sequel! Yes, the voice of Tex on Red Vs Blue is going to in the next BrickNerd Studios production, and I couldn't be happier.
