WONDER WOMAN naked and Blu


outlook-8

I watched the new WONDER WOMAN animated flick on blu ray. I’ve always thought Wonder Woman would be tough to write but fun to draw.  Anyway, I enjoyed the flick. They do a great job of knocking out the origin of Themyscira and our beloved Diana as well as setting up Ares and Hippolyta’s long standing feud before the credits. I loved the battle scenes, they combine what I would want in a cross between the greatest peplum ever mixed with the coolest Harryhausen epic never made. The Steve Trevor bits don’t work as well for me but I suppose they have their place in the Wonder Woman mythos. The voice acting is great all the way through: Keri Russell as Diana, Nathan Fillion as Trevor, Alfred Molina as Ares and so on. Anytime I see the brilliant Andrea Romano is involved I know the acting will be great. I thought they did a great job explaining the stars and stripes of her costume which has always been a tricky thing. Hades was awesome, best fat god on a couch I’ve seen in a while. The big battle at the end was great and about as far as you could go without an R-Rating. Very brutal and anything with a cyclops is welcome. I think the approach they took could work in a live action feature. Just do the opposite of everything they did in SUPERMAN RETURNS. And for fuck’s sake get Megan Fox already. If you bastards cast Beyonce, I’ll reach down your throat and pull out your endocrine system. I’d like to take this time to thank Lynda Carter for being wonderful.

  1. NICE drawing. I’m surprised you didn’t mention the semi-nudity on the animated DVD. The skinny dipping scene with the amazons (no WW though) was very well done, if you like that sort of thing—which I do. Hopefully they have similar scenes in the live-action film. I agree about Beyonce. It would be idiotic to change the character THAT drastically. Maybe she could play one of the other Amazons (in a very short cameo), but do NOT cast her as WW.

  2. Thanks man. I’m not really that gung ho for Meagan Fox but really want them to get going on this thing. She may be okay, they could put her through a “300″ like training regime. I don’t know how true the Beyonce rumors were but it just seems like that dopey kind of stunt casting similar to “what if James Bond were black” or Captain America. There would just be no reason for it. Plus she doesn’t seem capable of being tough. My wife actually did the drawing. We both thought WW would have a bush.

    Or Will Smith as James West? And we know what a disaster that film was.

    “My wife actually did the drawing. We both thought WW would have a bush.”

    Once again we agree. And EVERY female superhero should have a bush. LOL
