5 Reasons Why The DCEU Could Still Be Great

5. Wonder Woman Looks Awesome

Warner Bros.

So we've all seen the latest trailer for Wonder Woman at this point and frankly, it's shaping up to be a damn good film. The marketing hasn't yet put a foot wrong, with a stunning set of posters punctuated by strong, vibrant colours that capture the feeling of a simpler time in comic books dropping with the new trailer.

Gal Gadot's characterisation of the iconic superhero carries weight and strength with a sense of naivety and cynicism towards our world. It's a wonderfully balanced full introduction to Diana Prince.

When you couple this with the fact that it is directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins, no less, director of the Oscar-winning Monster), you can expect a fresh take on female representation within the genre.

Unless Kathryn Bigelow makes a Black Widow movie, then DC are going to have one up on Marvel with the handling of their female characters. This desperately needed diverse talent pool means nothing but good things for DC in the future, which brings me onto my next point.
