We all want Wonder Woman to be in a movie. In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb and say we want her to be in EVERY film. And every TV show. Maybe a few music videos. But for one reason or another, we’re repeatedly disappointed by a world which does not seem to share our desire for Diana to take over the entirety of culture. She can’t get a TV show off the ground, her film scripts never get put anywhere near production, and Nicki Minaj hasn’t dressed up as her ONCE.

So step-forward first-time director Jesse V. Johnson, a stunt co-ordinator who has worked on films like Lincoln, Thor, and Spider-Man, to show how it’s done. Johnson today uploaded a film trailer for Wonder Woman, to show off his ability as a director for potentially-interested parties… and it’s pretty darned good, you guys. It’s even got this poster, created by Robert Sebree.


Casting actress Nina Bergman as Wonder Woman and Peter-flipping-Stormare as her Nazi captor, this fan film captures basically everything William Marston could have possibly wanted to see in a Wonder Woman movie. There’s fighting, and empowerment, some light bondage, and even a touch of psychological theory. Johnson describes the project’s origins:

It was my manager / producing partner Kailey Marsh’s idea to shoot the trailer.  She really believes I should be a studio director, and thought shooting Wonder Woman would be a great way to show off my skills in a fun way that people could get excited about.

So without further ado, here’s the trailer for the movie. What do you think?

  1. Not bad.

    Though I’d like to see her in more than just the traditional costume. It looks odd fighting in such skimpy clothes during WWII. Even the Captain America movie had to deal with that problem. Perhaps it would work better (for me) if the costume we all know and love was revealed as a new look when she made it to the modern day scene at the end.

    But it’s a business card trailer — used for promoting his talents as a filmmaker, not the character so much. So I get it. Good luck to him.

  2. Those are some tight shorts … “booty shorts?” She seemed too small for WW for me. Really, I liked the David E. Kelly actress better.

  3. About as good as Zack Snyder could have done. However, the lead actress is very good with what she’s been given to do.

  4. Hmmm, I think he did a nice job. Though I think it’s too dark ala the Nolan crap that people keep going to. The costume is kinda close to the original costume, but seeing Wonder Woman firing the gun seems off to me.

    I think the best guy who does these, or who does the best Batman at least, is Sandy Collora. His Batman Dead End is still the way I’d rather see Batman on screen.
