Yahweh bless San Diego Comicon for being the outlet through which we, the geeky masses, finally get the Wonder Woman and Justice League trailers in all of their nerdgasmically awesome glory. I was expecting the Wonder Woman trailer but getting one for the Justice League movie is pure gravy, man.
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’ most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. – Source

What’s that you say? How can I blame Marvel Studios for Warner Brothers not making a movie of a DC Comics character? That makes no sense to you? Have I skipped my medication for the day?
Well all of those questions will be answered right after the cut.
As part of the ongoing series of animated shorts produced for the Cartoon Network’s block of DC Nation cartoons, this exceedingly snazzy Wonder Woman clip from this past weekend proves in a scant 30 seconds that with the right idea and creators Wonder Woman can be just as cool as any of her male super-hero counterparts. And the right idea in this case is to go the Cleopatra Jones route with Wonder Woman driving an invisible muscle car and looking very stylish.
Now I know most people have a very low opinion of Aquaman based off of how useless he was made to be in the old SUPER-FRIENDS cartoon but that was a poor representation of what is really one of the coolest super-heroes around.
Green Lantern Optimus Prime! Batman Transformer Armor! Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane as a Transformer! Megatron vs Superman! Drawn by the phenomenal Phil Jiminez!
All of that awesomeness could have been in my grubby little hands except one of the braintrust running DC decided not to do it. To that person or persons I wish all manner of bad juju upon.
Unless of course they change their mind and re-greenlight this project. then I’ll be their bestest friend forever.
