I thought the trailer was really cool.

Well, Jesus might destroy a civilization for Hitler if the messiah believed that he owed Adolf a solid for taking care of the Jews, but JC would only verify his existence by nuking Themyscira, thus making the attack utterly redundant.

I think Hiter would prefer Donar or Woden nuked the Amazons, rather than some 1st Century Jewish prophet.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

You might think that, but if the Aesir threatened the Fuhrer's faith in God and Jesus he would destroy them too, even if they were immortal beings who created the Earth and the universe and had guided mankind for millennia.

Valkyries and Thunder Gods was just shits and giggles for Hitler.

The bible is real.

It is unforgivable to allow shits and giggles to displace reality.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

IIRC, Hitler mostly gave lip service to Christianity, he wasn't much of a believer. He's quoted as calling Christianity a weak religion and wished Germans followed a more militaristic faith.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religio...f_Adolf_Hitler

I just skimmed through the interesting bits.

My less than serious point of view still holds water because Adolf was batshit crazy.

Hitler believed that Jesus was an Aryan anti-Semite.

That's comedy gold.

I'll amend my previous stipulation to state that Hitler believed in the bible after he rewrote it.

You have to wonder if Nazi Germany could have sweet talked a diplomatic Relationship out of Diana, because the concentration camps and everything else was above top secret right up until the last days of the war...

In JLA New Frontier, the comic, Eisenhower slaps Diana on the rump and calls her a "Good little woman" or something equally dismissive, where-after she hesitantly decides not to snap the President over her knee.

Can you imagine a racist angry drunk like Churchill would be any more more presentable?

Honestly, a teetotalling vegetarian putting his best foot forward as long as he kept all his skeletons in an awfully large closet could rightly make a better first impression than the good guys.

But that's the problem with crazy people they don't know when to lie.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

Do you mean odd as in "few" or odd as in "peculiar"?

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

I don't think WB is scared of Wonder Woman; I think they're just scared of super heroes in general. The feature film division of WB doesn't "get it"; I imagine their meetings are a lot like Wall Street tycoons trying to plot the next My Little Pony episode. I envision a few moments of awkward silence and then a grey haired suit exclaiming "What is this shit?" just before he demands a glass of scotch.

I believe WB has had success by luck on their super hero feature films. It was the happenstance that Donner, Burton and Nolan were interested; that's all. WB doesn't know good from bad on this stuff; they are absolutely befuddled by it. They finally just pick something like pulling the handle on the slot machine and then see what come up.

The thing is that their TV and animation divisions do not seem to have problems at all.

All they really need to do is put some of their comic, TV and animation writers together in a room and tell them to write a script.

A fan-made WW trailer - technically polished, yet generically "gritty" and pretty well devoid of wit:

... Yeeeeaaahhh. Doesn't exactly make my inner studio exec start writing a $100m check...
The voiceover at the 1:20 mark sounds like Marina Sirtis.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

Here's a big part of the reason they can't get going with DC - there's a civil war going on inside the executive ranks of Warner Brothers right now.

Re: Is WB simply afraid of Wonder Woman?

They dno't write animated movies any more.

They just strictly adapt existing popular comicbooks.

"Strictly"

No room for creativity.

They're telling writers to be editors.

Their job is to strip a comic book script until it's the size of a movie script, while dealing with thought bubbles and the endless narrative from dialogue boxes.

You call that artistic integrity?
