I’d like to get a Green Lantern one next, possibly Flash too … I think my wife has started something here …

Justice League and Wonder Woman trailers – oh boy!

Warner Bros has released preview trailers of the Wonder Woman and Justice League movies and, wow, I am excited! Wonder Woman looks awesome. I’m really looking forward to seeing Gal Gadot in this movie, I really liked her in Batman v Superman:

I have mixed feelings about Justice League for a couple reasons. First, I’m still a little put off by the cinematic version of Batman v Superman. Second, I really like Grant Gustin’s TV Flash and I’m not sure yet about Ezra Miller in that role. Still, he looks interesting.

On the other hand, Jason Momoa is an inspired choice for Aquaman and I liked Ben Affleck’s Batman. Also, it’s the Justice League!!

And, of course, let’s not forget the early poster releases for these two movies.

There was some controversy about the Wonder Woman trailer because Gadot’s face is in shadow and this isn’t the case in posters for superhero movies about male stars. I’m convinced. I think this poster is dramatic and I like it.

Besides, isn’t one of the themes about Wonder Woman from the Batman v Superman movie a degree of mystery about her and who she is? Her movie is an origin movie so a little mystery isn’t really a problem, is it?

Yes, the title is cheesy but how awesome is this paint work? I saw it at gym earlier.

Whose worldview do you hold: Superman or Batman

Another Seth Godin gem:

There are dozens of other worldview-types out there. Consider the nerd (who prides himself on knowing the details), the jester (who seeks to cause mischief) and the too-busy monkey, who just wants to know what to do next (and his cousin, the parrot, who wants to do what he’s told).
