Fantastic Live Action Wonder Woman Fan Trailer

Today on io9 there’s an awesome new movie trailer for a film that will probably never see the light of day.  Half because it’s a fan trailer for a trademarked and copyrighted character, and half because the protagonist has the worst luck making it to the big screen.  That’s right, it’s a Wonder Woman trailer!!

Or rather, a “Female Super Hero Fan Film” trailer, but it’s Wonder Woman.  Jesse V. Johnson directs and Nina Bergman stars in this super cool trailer that features Wonder Woman taking down a bunch of Nazis:

This is pretty impressive for a fan trailer.  Hell, this is more impressive than the entire David E. Kelley pilot!!  Setting it in World War Two like the original comics is classy, plus there seem to be some other fun Wonder Woman references.  For example, her shooting down the German plane is reminiscent of the cover to Wonder Woman #189 from the mod era.  The costuming is solid, and I like the tweaks they made to Wonder Woman’s outfit.  The whole thing is just very well done.

And also the closest we’re going to get to a live-action Wonder Woman for a while.  The Justice League movie is in a bad way right now, while the CW’s Amazon pilot has been pushed back a year.  It was fun to see a live-action Wonder Woman taking down some Nazis, however briefly.  Everyone involved in this trailer did a fantastic job, and I hope a lot of people check it out.

    What a truly fantastic trailer that was! A real labour of love for the person or persons who put it together.
    The actor who was the Nazi interrogator seemed very familiar, hes an actor of some repute, just wish I knew his name.

    • Tim Hanley Says:

      The trailer’s Vimeo site says that it co-stars Peter Stormare, Timothy V. Murphy, and Matthias Hues, so perhaps you recognized one of them? The director is a stunt man, and might have some connections with familiar actors from working with them.

    Peter Stormare from ‘Prison Break’? Thats fabulous, knew I recognized him from somewhere. An actor of his calibre would sell this very well as a pilot.
