Get Wonder Hyped! The Official Wonder Woman Movie Has A Logo

Separator

Warner Bros. Pictures has just released the official logo for its Wonder Woman movie coming out next year. And it’s a doozy.

We have only a year and a half to go until a live action Wonder Woman film is released in theaters for the first time EVER. Trust me. I know. It’s never happened before. This is monumental. BUT IT IS HAPPENING NOW. It will be in our eyeballs in the summer of 2017. And, like, it feels so soon, but so far away at the same time? You know what I mean?

From the first whisperings of a Wonder Woman film a long, long time ago, there have been plenty of announcements that made WW fans everywhere feel like we were on a rollercoaster. First there was a lot of buzz about Michelle MacLaren getting hired to direct, and how awesome it was that Wonder Woman’s director was a woman. (Good job, DC!) But then news broke a few months later that, due to creative differences, she backed out of the gig. Suddenly, Wonder Woman had no director. And my hopes fell to the ground and shattered into one million pieces. But after only two days, Patty Jenkins (director of the fantastic 2003 film Monster) was hired on as the new director. Praise Hera!

From then on, we were rewarded with a slew of goodies, including an exciting glimpse of Wonder Woman at the end of last month’s trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I won’t mince words here—I was a bit disillusioned throughout the trailer until the end when you see what looks suspiciously like a Wonder-shield. And then the Wonder-shield lowers to reveal none other than Wonder Woman, Amazon warrior princess! YEAH!

More goodies continued to be released after that. There were hints that the film would be set during World War I. That was quite the time for women’s suffrage, which had a huge influence on Wonder Woman’s creation, so it wasn’t that far of a stretch. And then those hints were officially confirmed by released photos from the set of the film. Chris Pine, who plays Diana Prince’s male counterpart and Air Force pilot Steve Trevor, is dressed in clothes that are definitely from the 1910s.

And then came the pictures of Diana Prince from the set. Gal Gadot, who’s playing Wonder Woman/Diana, is wearing some rad WWI-era glasses, a thick military-esque wool coat, a belt around her middle, and a pretty amazing hat. Not to mention she’s holding a sword and shield, both of which look decidedly Wonder Woman-ish.

Now that an official logo for the film has been released, and there’s evidence that they’re currently shooting on location, Wonder Woman’s June 23, 2017 release date looks to be the real deal. And man, that logo is tasty. It has a World War I, post-Edwardian, post-Industrial Revolution flare to it, what with the brassy, rusted look to the double-W.

Besides Gadot and Pine, the film boasts an incredible cast, including Robin Wright (Princess Bride, Forrest Gump, House of Cards), David Thewlis (from the Harry Potter films), Ewan Bremner (Snowpiercer), Connie Nielson (Gladiator), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), and more.

Behind the camera is a team of filmmakers who’ve received Oscar nods. Among them are editor Martin Walsh who won an Oscar for his editing work on Chicago (2002), as well as Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto who worked on Amélie (2001). And then there is Oscar-nominated costume designer Lindy Hemming, whose creations in Topsy-Turvy (1999) are some of the most wondrous costumes I’ve ever seen. Oh, and by the way, the director of photography, Matthew Jensen, works on Game of Thrones. (Game of Thrones!)

Wonder Woman will hit theaters June 23, 2017 with a big ol’ World War I bang!

I, for one, can’t even hold my seat, I’m so excited. In fact, I might need to simmer down some before I explode. I need to stay intact until next summer at the very least.

Let us know in the comments if you’re as excited as I am about these Wonder updates!!

And, as always…

WONDAH WOMUUUUUUUN!!!
