    And for the lazy a pic.http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--EQ7M2jGh--/c_fit,fl_progressive,q_80,w_636/cucyvdeqslwecj7e5ukd.jpg

    Would

    hopefully this is her as a warrior princess before she became wonder woman with all her cool stuff

    I can only assume they are trying to cash in on the current "Fantasy" trend. GOT, Hobbit, Hercules etc. You're absolutely right though - it does look more like a reboot of Xena. Ahhh, Xena. I actually fancied her sidekick more. Was her character called Gabrielle? Also, her nemesis/mortal enemy (can't remember her name) was pretty hot too.

    Is the lady in the above pic anyone famous? I don't recognise her.

    Her name is Gal Gadot all I know about her is she is very pro israel posting online messages, reason enough to boycott anything she is in imo.

    but regardless of the fact she don't look like a threat to anyone, (needs someone athletic) the fact remains that is not wonder woman, its a total insult to the character. No way anyone would guess who thst was meant to be thus it is a total fail. Might aswell have batman dressed in orange without a cawl and remove supermans cloak and dress him in white while they are at it.

    So when are we going to see you sporting that costume ?

    Given that Xena was a Warrior Princess from Amphipolis in Greece, & Princess Diana was from the Amazon Warrior tribe of Themyscira, it isn't surprising parallels between the two characters are being made.

    I think the costume makes sense.

    Her weaponry could do with some improvement though.

    that's a funny looking kitchen X)

    Do you think Lucy Lawless would be better casting?

    Bull.
    Can't possibly be any kind of action character in boots like these.
    Couldn't catch a bus in these never mind a crim.
    Surprised she didn't break her neck making the movie/series (whatever it was); get some trainers on girl.

    maybe 20 years ago, she didn't look quite so hot when i saw her today oO

    Possibly somebody else not familiar with Wonder Woman's backstory

    That said, bearing in mind the extension of the background of Kal-El's family in "Man of Steel", an introduction to Diana's Themysciran history may also feature in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", or in the forthcoming "Wonder Woman" (or "Justice League") movie(s).

    I hope.

    On second thoughts its she ra, the boots are right.

    I'd look better as wonder woman at least I look like I can kick ****, I've got some muscles, knee high to a grasshopper but still it has been proven that I can kick a 6ft 2inch man in the face from a standing position so hight isn't everything.

    That woman from lizard licks towing would make a better wonder woman, would you mess with her? I think not. Anyway the main point is that outfit is totally wrong

    The "W" worked into the top of the costume is subtle.

    I still disagree with you though.

    ps - I am quite happy with the outfit.. glad it wasn't all colourful like the TV show.. she'll also be rocking a shield worn on her back like The Capn'

    In the Lynda Carter version, Princess Diana dressed in white or blue.

    I still think this isn't the "Wonder Woman" costume.

    It's a more fitting costume for the time period, considering the Man of Steel costume compared to Christopher Reeve's outfit and the X-Men costumes etc

    Glad they're putting a new take on them rather going with the older versions tbh

    Yes, me too.

    I wonder what they'll do (to meddle) with the older Batman.

    "Batman" wears a (s)cowl after that comment.

    Dat complete lack of muscle definition. Looks more like a model hired to cosplay as WW.

    This film will also have Aqua Man and Cyborg..

    Got to say i like New Wonder Woman, Alluring Yet Can Handle Herself. and Affleck is a massive Batman Fan, he even built his own Batcave at home, he knows his stuff.

    Compared to the DC comic book character, or some other depiction?

    Nicholas Cage married (then divorced) Elvis Presley's daughter.

    Doesn't mean he can sing.

    Or act...

    That said, I'm looking forward to what Ben Affleck can do with the character.

    I didn't mind him as Matt Murdoch/Daredevil, & his acting has advanced somewhat since.

    I think fleck is a pretty decent actor....

    Nic Cage can only play one character - He played the part in Face Off very well, but every film before and since has been rubbish
    Even Gone in 60 Seconds.. it was a great film apart from his role !

    I agree with you to a point.

    I did enjoy Cage's movie "Next", but it could have been anybody taking his role, to be fair. The story made that movie, not the acting.

    Bringing back to some sort of topic...

    What did you think of Cage as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider?

    Probably one of his worst films ever .....
    They coiuld have put someone alot better into that film...

    The film makers wanted a "big name" star i think .. and got it wrong!
