MINOTAUR OR MAN: Wonder Woman Fan Film Rivals Them All

Say 'It can't be done' long enough and sooner or later you find someone who proves 'It can'.  L.A. production company Rainfall have created a deluge of voices screaming the latter, thanks to their 'fan film' on DC's warrior peace bringer, Wonder Woman. Raining on the parade of the big studios saying she's too hard to sculpt for the screen, these guys show how the amazon who borders two worlds - our crime ridden present and the greek-classical past -has never been more iconic or raring to go.


That taking off of the robe has to be the money-maker scene. You know you're in for trouble when Diana takes the kid gloves off. Right, that's two great fan videos down (the other one is here), Hollywood, who's next?

 What do you think?

  1. I love the intercutting shots between the Minotaurs and the thugs in the street. The look on her face that says, "I've fought giant bull men, you guys just have guns," is priceless. One small criticism, no one throws a javelin from that angle and hits anything. It's a very small nitpick, but it kind of jarred me out of an otherwise awe inspiring shot. She looked perfect in the role, and not ridiculous at all, which puts to lie anything anyone has ever said about Wonder Woman not being feasible for the big screen. (I've always thought that was stupid anyway. They put a guy in long blue underwear on the screen, and a dude dressed as a bat. So come on.)

  2. This was great - can I take it you posted this after I mentioned it yesterday?!? Go on Dan I want the credit!
    Best effects ever, that goes without saying, but having WW fighting those men did hint at an 'anti-men' bias but to promote a WW movie that will have to attract girls that kind of has to be taken for granted. Her flying at the end could've been done better, that was a bit slow. Still, few grumbles on what is a SUPERB trailer...almost makes me wanna go see the film if it comes out!

  4. You were indeed Karl, sorry I wrote this while running out the door today and thought I gave you your due. Will fix when I get home bud!

    Like Random and Dale, I like the comparrison shots between the two evils, though I think for a WW film I'm still on the fence as to her flying without the sandals. What do you think?

  7. This WW trailer has got a mind-stomping THREE MILLION downloads already! I cant imagine now any Hollywood studio not taking any notice of a possible WW movie after this.
