You Aren't Imagining It, 'Wonder Woman' Isn't Being Well Promoted
With only a month and change to go, Warner Bros. seems to have little interest in promoting 'Wonder Woman.'

“When Suicide Squad came out, you couldn’t escape the world’s worst heroes. They were everywhere, despite the average audience-goer knowing only who Harley Quinn and the Joker were due to pop culture osmosis. Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is. Yet a quick look at the playlist for Suicide Squad vs. Wonder Woman on the official Warner Bros. YouTube page is as different as night and day.



Approximately a month before Warner Bros. releases one of their biggest films of the year, one that will go down in entertainment history one way or another simply for being the first film starring Princess Diana, the company has released three trailers and two “Tilt Brush” videos explaining the concept art. 

At the same point in the marketing cycle for Suicide Squad, the villainous flick already had three trailers, four TV spots, a “Buy Advanced Tickets” promotional video, and fun little biographies for each member of the team. That’s a hell of a lot more promotion for a B-string list of heroes (at best) than for WONDER WOMAN.

Speaking for myself, I have seen exactly ONE commercial so far and that was two nights ago! Where I live they were showing Suicide Squad ads on basically a non-stop loop this far out from the release of SS.

HEY WARNER “BROS”!!!

WONDER WOMAN Breaks Glass Ceiling For Female Directors & Stomps On ‘Iron Man’ With $100.5M Debut
The warrior princess of Themyscira is finally leaping past the century mark this weekend with $100.5M according to Warner Bros., however, other studios believe Wonder Woman has the power to exceed $101M.
By Anthony D'Alessandro

The success of Wonder Woman this weekend even impressed John Fithian, National Association of Theatre Owners CEO & President who exclaimed, ““I want to congratulate Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot and Warner Bros on the terrific opening, but Wonder Woman’s success is everybody’s success. AT NATO, at CinemaCon, we have for years called for diversity in movies that match the diversity of our audiences, not just because it’s a good idea but because it’s good business.  What we really look forward to is the day when a movie directed by a woman and telling a woman’s story is no longer news because it was successful – or even that it was produced at all – because such movies should be a matter of routine. We will grow our audiences by telling more stories that tell their stories.”

Give me this interaction the next crossover please. I mean come on, have Sara use her charm on Supergirl nand get Kara all flustered. It’s what we deserve. And i need jealous Lena to rise for an ep

What I love about Steve Trevor is that he experessed every single trope women characters had to endure in superhero movies ever and he did that spectacularly?! The Love Interest. The sexualization. The “oops haha the hero walked in on me naked.” The “using your sexuality to seduct/distract a villain.” And it wasn’t some sort of punishment or revenge. He was still a great memorable character. He still had some fantastic lines. Simply like… No, there is no problem for a character to be minor and make room for the hero and be there for romantic/sexual effect. It’s still fun and lovely. It’s just tiring to see only women do it, and that it’s almost the only role they’re allowed to play. And he did all that and STILL was a lot more than a just a love interest or a corny sex joke, STILL got a lot more screen time than most women in his position. This just goes to show that if writers really wanted, they could write meaningful women characters who serve as love interests

  • DC: let's have a movie centered around Wonder Woman. The world is ready for a female centered movie. Marvel won't be able to rival that.
  • Marvel: so Black Panther but filled with strong and brilliant black women in their natural beauty.
  • Me: crying because girls these days have so many beautiful female role models to chose from in the super hero universe.

Diana Prince (DCEU) — “I used to want to save the world, to end war and bring peace to mankind. But then I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learnt that inside every one of them there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat. And now I know… that only love can truly save the world.”
