There was some griping online that Warner Bros. Pictures wasn’t putting enough marketing muscle into promoting “Wonder Woman”, somehow insinuating that the studio doesn’t have a lot of confidence in a female solo superhero movie. Which is complete nonsense of course, but that’s the Internet for you.
In fact, we have been getting steadily bombarded by a stream of promo material in the past week, and it’s about to hit high gear leading up to the movie’s release next week. For example, here’s a fresh batch of posters featuring the Amazonian women of Themyscira. The first three are a special issue for the IMAX release, and they’re gorgeous. I don’t just mean the ladies in them, it’s the design itself, which is clearly meant to be a triptych. There’s Wonder Woman herself, Princess Diana, then her mother Queen Hippolyta, and her aunt General Antiope, all looking rather badass. The last one is a one-sheet previously released, which we’ve included here cos it features Wonder Woman lifting a tank. Sweeeet.
Here’s the official synopsis and production details: “Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
