This fan-made short film about Wonder Woman has been been making the rounds on the Internet faster than her invisible jet (clapping myself on the back for that obvious joke). Once upon a time, The Gloss readers ranked Wonder Woman as their favorite comic book heroine, so I definitely wanted to share this creation from Rainfall Films.
I must say, it’s quite impressive in terms of the stylization. As far as their portrayal of Wonder Woman, I tend to be drawn to the non-crime-fighting aspects of superhero stories, so I’m biased in my critique that there isn’t a whole lot of non-kicking-butt plot. Still, that is understandable in such a short video – and kick butt she does, so more power to her!
In the video’s YouTube description, the film’s director Sam Balcomb elaborated further on the project:
“Whether you like, or dislike, our live action interpretation of Diana of Themyscira, Wonder Woman, born of clay, I think (quite a few of) you will agree she is a character just as vital and crucial to our understanding of humanity as any other superhero… if not more so.”
So does this interpretation make you want to see a full-length Wonder Woman movie alongside Thor 2, Iron Man 3 and Captain America 52? Do you have thoughts on a better way to bring Wonder Woman to the big screen? Let me know in the comments, but until then, take solace that while we live in a world without a Wonder Woman movie, Woman Woman kitchen mixers DO exist… so hurray?
