Wonder Woman has received universal praise from fans and the filmmaking community, but she's received some love from the Marvel superhero community as well.
Namely from Captain Marvel herself Brie Larson, who will headline the first female-led movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year. Larson sent Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins a message on Twitter saying "Retweet if you desperately wanna give @PattyJenks a massive hug."
The feeling was reciprocated by Jenkins, who calls herself a big fan of Larson's work. "Wow, thanks @brielarson. I want to give you a hug too! - And watch everything you do, including Capt. Marvel. Can't wait!! Very exciting."
While the two cinematic universes won't stop dueling for box office dollars anytime soon, it's wonderful to see such universal support for these two icons regardless of what company you support.
Larson will debut as Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) in Avengers: Infinity War, but will then headline her own solo film in 2019. Marvel recently brought on directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, responsible for Half Nelson and Mississippi Grind. Now that directors are in place and the lead star is already hitting the ground running, more casting news should soon follow. Captain Marvel currently has a 3.78 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and is written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder. The film stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
