The second trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie dropped, and like the first trailer, it doesn’t disappoint.
Although I enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice more than most people, I believe that best part of the movie was Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

The San Diego Comic-Con is taking place and movie studios premiered special trailers for their upcoming movies. The following four movies are based on comic book characters.
I watched these trailers and felt excited about watching the movies they represented. Never in my life, not even when I was a kid, have I experienced that same level of excitement over an upcoming comic book event. These trailers show just how dead the comic book medium is. The prime medium for telling and consuming superhero stories is not in print but in movies and television.
For a while now, I think I’ve preferred my superhero stories to be presented in movies and TV, not monthly comic books. These trailers just drove that point home. Comic books are as dead as cave drawings. If a superhero story is worth telling, it will be told in a movie or a TV show. If it’s only worth being told in the pages of the $4 monthly floppy, then I don’t want to experience it. I’ll wait for the movie or TV Show. If that leap never happens, if it languishes in the dead medium of flopping comic books, then I’ll take a pass.
