With the Wonder Woman live action film on its way, many people might be excited to see one of the west’s greatest superheroines come to life…but let’s take a second to compare and contrast Diana Prince to another superhero from the east: Usagi Tsukino.
Discuss the potential box office and/or critical draw the upcoming Wonder Woman film may or may not have. Will it improve DC Entertainment’s cinematic standards? How will it affect Marvel and their plans for more diverse films? Could a Wonder Woman film help shape a more diverse landscape of superhero franchises, regardless of critical or commercial success? Consider previous failures like Elektra and Catwoman and why they might have failed.
Since the film has been made and a trailer (maybe more than one) has been released as well – let’s give some background to comic readers who may not know about WW. Explain Wonder Woman’s relationship with herself, the Justice League, and how she came to be who she is today. Also, tieing in the new comic series she has had and seeing where the movie could potentially take from that instead of taking from the older versions of Wonder Woman.

Thank you! I meant an updated version [I added it in there], she has a new comic series out from 2016! I wanted to focus on that and how the movie will (maybe) adapt to the newer comics being made recently instead of adapting to the older ones and making it more updated in a sense – scole4 months ago
Due to poor reviews and box office mediocrity of both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad, does the Wonder Woman film – set for a 2017 release – have a good chance for critical success? While the released trailer shows promise, what can one expect regarding the quality of the film?

Discuss and analyze why the other films in the DCEU have not met expectations of both the viewers and the critics. What do the critics think actually could make a good quality film? – Deana Murphy4 months ago
Wonder Woman will surpass the others. The trailer portrays an aura of mysticism. Audiences are showing a huge interest in going back in time. Look at the popularity of the TV series "Game of Thrones" and "Outlander." Expect quality to triumph.

Describe maybe what will happen to the overall DCEU if Wonder Woman is in fact below expectations as most of the past films have been. – DallasLash173 months ago
BvS and Suicide Squad have actually been box office hits, Suicide Squad even surpassing Captain America: Civil War. What's more interesting and relevant here is perhaps the constant and stark divide in criticisms. There is either love or hate for DCEU films so far. Is the current slate of comic book movies (Marvel) informing audience's expectations? Who are DCEU movies made for? It certainly isn't the general Marvel watching audience. – Laura Andrea2 months ago
