First Look at Wonder Woman

Outside of Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con belong to the unlucky masses that were not permitted to witness the first trailer from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The first shot of Ben Affleck as Batman with glowing white eyes, has him pulling off a tarp of the Batsignal, throwing the switch to project the famous icon into the night sky and then flying just below the beam, its Superman. Henry Cavill gets a close-up as the Kryptonian immigrant with glowing red eyes, and then the shot cuts back to Batman.
End of preview. Beginning of speculation.
No clips of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, but director Zack Snyder did tweet a new image of the Amazonian warrior princess right after the panel concluded. Those in attendance were treated with an additional surprise when Affleck, Cavill and Gadot came out to not answer any questions.
Not revealed was the list of DC Comics movies to take place after Justice League in 2017. The feared, but lacking comic-cred Deadline.com founder’s list of potential DC films leaked in early June will have to remain in the rumor mill for the time being. Since Gadot signed a three-picture deal, we can bet there will be a standalone Wonder Woman movie. But after that, it’s all speculation.
Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, has been tweeting furiously that he “could” be Shazam on the big screen. But with his new Hercules getting overpowered by Scarlett Johansson’s Lucy this weekend,one has to wonder if Warner Bros. had second thoughts in unveiling an aggressive superhero slate of movies on the same day Johnson’s long awaited film is struggling for second place in its opening weekend. Especially since Johnson is the only other big name supposedly attached to the DC lineup.
