Does This '300'-esque 'Wonder Woman' Fan Film Prove the Superhero Deserves Her Own Movie?

Does This '300'-esque 'Wonder Woman' Fan Film Prove the Superhero Deserves Her Own Movie?

Oct 01, 2013


We survived the 2011 Wonder Woman pilot — written by David E. Kelley, starring Adrianne Palicki in the title role — that never aired, and since then DC fans of the Amazonian princess have been wondering what's next for their heroine in the realm of film and television. The folks at Rainfall Films have filled in the blanks with their interpretation via a 300-style Wonder Woman short.

It's graceful, atmospheric and very Zack Snyder-esque, with plenty of moody, slo-mo/fast-mo action. Kudos to Hatchet actress Rileah Vanderbilt for a fairly strong portrayal. We definitely like her look more than Palicki's painted-on jeans. "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," director Sam Balcomb said of the short.

Indeed, it's an interesting look at a character who has struggled in the movie universe, but is it what the fans really want (more of the same)? Are expectations for this imagined future film too high and unfair? Discuss.
