For those of you who have been reading this site since, well, this morning, you will know that I am now in full support of Warner Bros. abandoning the Justice League movie and pursuing a feature-length ode to my favorite comic lady, Wonder Woman. It is a real travesty that the production that Joel Silver has held under his wing for so long (still listed with a 2009 release date) has never gone further than the script stage. As some may recall, even Joss Whedon was once attached to the live-action project. It is a sad situation, one that has led me to taking on the cause. I was almost to the point this morning of starting a petition. Then I remembered that the last petition we started didn’t see much the way of results.
Putting all that aside for a moment, I would like to draw your attention to an upcoming DVD release from Warner Premiere. From the same team that got us all excited then left us profoundly disappointed with Batman: Gotham Knight comes Wonder Woman. Though thankfully, when I say “team” I am referring to the producers and up; this film was directed by Lauren Montgomery, who did an impressive job with both Justice League: The New Frontier and Superman: Doomsday. That said, lets have a look at that trailer:

The voice of Wonder Woman is performed by Kerri Russell (Waitress), with Rosario Dawson (Clerks 2), Nathan Fillion (Serenity), Virginia Madsen (Sideways) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2) also lending their voices to various characters.
Wonder Woman hits DVD shelves in February 2009.
