Wonder Woman (The DVD Movie)

Well, that was disappointing. I knew that watching Wonder Woman’s origin story made into an animated film would have some overly familiar bits, but I didn’t expect to be so put off by the attempts to make it new and modern. The movie starts with Hippolyta and Ares fighting. As someone who’s not particularly interested in Greek/Roman mythology, I was bored waiting for the title woman in the costume to show up. Instead, we got battle, clay baby, Amazon bickering, […]

Wonder Woman Voice Actress Vicki Lewis

In the latest series of promotional interviews to promote the Wonder Woman animated movie due out March 3, Warner Home Video has distributed a Q&A with Vicki Lewis (NewsRadio). Surprisingly, at least to me, she plays Amazon Persephone, described as “one of the key characters in the Amazon’s battle with Ares.” Also surprising to me is that this is her second DCU appearance. She previously voiced Iris West, the Flash’s fiancee, in Justice League: The New Frontier. QUESTION: When you […]

Wonder Woman: Virginia Madsen on Comics, Gender, Parenting

The latest in the series of studio-produced interviews promoting the direct-to-video Wonder Woman animated movie has been released: it’s a conversation with Virginia Madsen, who voices Queen Hippolyta.

I did find these two exchanges, near the end, interesting: Question: Were/are you a comic-book reader? Madsen: I was not a comic book reader, but my […]

Wonder Woman Animated Movie Update

Before the Wonder Woman original animated movie is released March 3, it will have a “big screen premiere” at the New York Comic Con on February 6 at 8:30 PM, followed by a panel discussion with the film’s cast and crew. I’m still not sure whether I’ll be able to go to the show this year. I much prefer an April timeframe for visiting the city, but my brother’s living in the area now. Decisions, decisions. Seeing the film (and […]
