Wonder Woman Batman v. Superman is out next week. I’ve been reading and re-reading some things. I thought I’d make a post recommending a few Wonder Woman stories, if anyone’s interested.
Monday, Michelle MacLaren left her role as Wonder Woman director. Today, another director has officially stepped in. And, in an interesting twist of superhero movie making fate, it's a former Marvel favorite, who never got their chance to make her superhero movie.
Vixen is the latest DC Comics' character to make the jump to The CW. The superhero is set to star in her own animated series, coming via The CW Seed, the network's platform for original digital content.
There has been a lot of clamor for female led super hero movies, and for good reason. I want more too but what I really really want are female villains. Give me superheroes, male and female matching wits and duking it out with female super villains! Both Marvel and DC so far have given us female second in command but…
Little Girls Are Better at Designing Superheroes Than You, a long title for an amazing Tumblr, creator Alex Law and writer Ted Anderson have a pitch for a new comic and have shared the 15 page standalone for readers to get an idea of what it is like. And it looks great!
Nour Saleh wears a hijab, so when she recently took up a Tumblr challenge to draw herself as different fictional characters, she incorporated a headscarf into various superhero designs—often with very clever results.
Disney is finally expanding its princess library to include royal figures from galaxies far away and long ago - now how about some love for Marvel Princesses?
It's no secret that female characters are portrayed in a different way than their male counterparts are in comic art. But in a medium where superhero costumes are already so silly, why do we care so much about how our lady heroes dress?

First off, a thing about Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
You may remember I posted a poll on your knowledge of superheroes a couple weeks ago. I don't pretend that this survey was scientific in any way. It wasn't random, the question wasn't particularly well worded and the only people who saw it were on O-Deck, Groupthink and Oppo. But... I think it did show something…
...now with more non-big 2 and links to purchase digitally. Yaaay.
There has been a lot of discussion about Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy and how well known the comic book series was before they decided to make a movie about them. Here's a survey to determine just how obscure superheroes were before they made it to TV and movies.
I know what you might be thinking, "CBG is posting about comics? Say-eth what? I've never been so surprised." But it's true!
In an interview with Kevin Smith, writer and television producer Paul Dini complained about a worrying trend he sees in television animation and superhero shows in particular: executives spurning female viewers because they believe girls and women don't buy the shows' toys.
...and superhero movies in general.
Now it's official: Wonder Woman will be introduced in the Man of Steel sequel, alongside Ben Affleck's Batman. And I stand by what I said before: Zack Snyder getting to be the one to introduce Wonder Woman on the big screen is a terrible idea.
