Last night saw the debut of the last stretch of Wonder Woman marketing just ahead of its release on June 2nd. And while there’s been quite of bit of digital press spent on the perceived dearth of Wonder Woman ads, it seems just as likely that the studio was waiting for the release of the 10-ton gorilla that is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 – which raked in $145 million this weekend.
Don’t worry y’all, Wonder Woman is indeed going to be treated like the big deal it is, and I fully expect you’re going to see a deluge of ads over the next few weeks as WB is desperately trying to right this DC Films ship.

Good trailer, as all three have been, but that music was a bit cringe inducing. Say what you will about Zack Snyder, but his movies all have pretty good trailer needle drops, in comparison (less so in the actual films, where this stuff really counts, of course).
I’m hearing lots of conflicting things about this one. Most of my press buddies are quietly confident, having met with the director and the production team a few times. But I’ve heard some worry out there too. I continue to keep my fingers crossed that the former scenario proves true, I know Patty Jenkins and company are working very hard on this one.
Only a few weeks left to go.
