Wonder Woman makes for a perfect start of Filmsane
Filmsane was officially „born“ last week. The blog I invested so much time, effort and thoughts into. A blog that is my Frankensteinian creation if you will, and a blog i hope you come back to. Creative outlet about latest news, opinions, and reviews. And while I’ve been writing like crazy about the former, somehow I missed out on the latter. The reviews.
Trust me it’s not by accident. Ive been patiently waiting for the prefect movie to mark the beginning of the reviews part of my blog, and what is more perfect beginning than Wonder Woman?
Cue for the WW theme music…
The fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe is not only the first solo superhero movie of DC, not only the first summer tent pole superhero film directed by a woman, but Patty Jenkins is the first woman to direct a superhero film with a female protagonist. And for a fan of Gal Gadot, Lynda Carter, Patty Jenkins, Robin Right and for the character itself – Wonder Woman… it’s a perfect beginning for my blog.
The movie release of Wonder Woman has come a long way to be right where it is today. The first developmental plans for WW movie began circulating more than 2 decades ago. At first Ivan Reitman was attached as a director, than Jon Cohen with Sandra Bullock in the leading role. Cut to 2005 when Joss Whedon was attached to the project of adapting the comic, but… in the next decade the project was tossed and flipped in so many other hands it was kind of lost on the shelfs and drawers of so many executives. To be honest i had a slightly similar experience with the making of Filmsane. The blog was in developmental hell for roughly 6 months, before it saw the light of the day, so i figured that WW is an appropriate film for first film review.
And then along came Patty Jenkins. Based on a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and a story co-written by Heinberg, Zack Snyder, and Jason Fuchs, Wonder Woman the movie that we know and wait to be released in theaters is an origin story/and a period piece set during WWI (judging from the trailers).
Gal Gadot was picked for the role of Diana Prince/WW over Élodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko, and I personally can’t wait to see her portrayal after being awesome, kicking some ass and stealing the show of her fellow superheroes in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Stay tuned for my Wonder Woman review.
