    This photo simply means that DC is ready to kick the ass of HILARIOUS ass of MARVEL..... DC fanboys be ready to brace the DCEU including me! I really like the way how DC/WB casted thier characters... Because they are utilizing award winning actors and actresses to portray their roles..But still people are still complaining like Ben, Gadot, Ezra and Jared Leto..... DC we trust your comic movie adaptations....

  2. My mum loves wonder woman

  3. We'll see. It all has to do with how the ponytail looks on her as Diana Prince.

    I'm curious, why do you think this is DC getting ready to lay the (non-infinity) gauntlet down?

    Aside from the Dark Knight films, what DC movie as of late has given you such confidence? I'll admit, aside from Batman & the Flash, I was always much more a Marvel fan in my book subscriptions growing up, but I love the hell out of the DC tv shows. But, again, aside from Nolan's TDK trilogy, DC has failed to impress. I hope BvS is great, and SS looks intriguing as well, but until they actually have finished products we can see? I'm not holding my breath.
