‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Gives Us First Looks At These Main Characters

Wonder Woman was a global success last year as it broke records and proved that female superheroes can rule the box-office. It’s the only DC Extended Universe film to receive critic appraisal for its simple but well composed story and glorious imagination. And now, two years after its arrival, its sequel will be upon us. So, in the light of Wonder Woman 1984 letting its presence be known at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, here are some photos giving us a first look at the movie.

Steve Trevor Has Come Back To Life?

Steve Trevor looks clearly out of place in this mall filled with the hairstyles and fashions of the 80s’. But that’s not the most bizarre thing about this picture? How is that Steve Trevor is supposedly still alive, perfectly intact, and doesn’t seem to have aged a day and yet it’s over fifty years into the future? Has he had Steve Roger syndrome and is this a narrative plothole waiting to happen?

In Justice League Diana Prince told Cyborg about how losing Steve Trevor was one of the hardest things she’s ever faced. But if he’s not dead are we supposed to assume that she was lying to Cyborg and that Steve Trevor is really alive as an old man somewhere. These questions will hopefully be answered in this Wonder Woman sequel.

Why I Believe Marvel Movies Are Better Than DC Movies

For the past five years there have been five DC films and eleven! Marvel films (eight of the eleven Marvel films I have enjoyed immensely.) But it’s not that the fact that Marvel has eighteen and counting movies under their belt that makes them a better franchise all around but DC seems to willingly want to keep their franchise less liked by constantly cranking out mediocre superhero movies. I mean, let’s think about the comparisons of the two superhero franchises.

Marvel’s First Movie: Iron Man

Iron Man came out ten years ago and, for the most part, it was a good movie. Yeah it’s now available for free on subscription services like Hulu and Amazon Prime but that’s not because it’s essentially a bad movie. It’s just old. A movie featuring a character like Tony Stark’s Iron Man could’ve easily been a flop but with the genius casting of Robert Downey Jr. he managed to make the movie not only enjoyable but a global success.

Marvel’s first movie was a home run and an exciting precursor to what was to come.

DC’s First Movie: Man of Steel

Now, I for one, actually really enjoyed Man of Steel. It was an enjoyable film, the music was epic, the story was well executed, and Henry Cavill’s Superman wasn’t wack. A lot of people, however, did not feel the same way. They felt that Man of Steel was, in a word, terrible. This is the first movie that the new DC universe debuted to the world and it was not getting the excited buzz that Iron Man had obtained five years before.

So, what’s the difference between these two debut films? Why did Iron Man work where Man of Steel failed? Well, first off, Iron Man was a better executed movie. It conveyed a story that people could comprehend and when you have a character who’s as lovable as Tony Stark you can’t help but enjoy the movie more. I hadn’t even seen Iron Man and Iron Man 2 all the way through as a child and he had become my favorite superhero because he was that cool.

With Man of Steel I didn’t get that same love for Superman as I did for Iron Man. I enjoyed the movie but I didn’t love the superhero. I think that’s the difference. If Henry Cavill could’ve made Clark Kent as lovable as Robert Downey Jr. did with Tony Stark people would’ve probably met the movie with more praise than criticism.

Marvel vs. DC: Whose Outfits Are Better?

Marvel Studios and the DC Extended Universe have taken the superhero world by storm with their incredible films that have generated billions upon billions of dollars and while the superheroes that have helmed these films are usually really enjoyable and easy to get behind sometimes their incredible outfits help make them that much cooler. And so, because the DC Universe has only six major superheroes in their roster so far I’m going to compare their suits with six of Marvel’s best outfitted heroes. Enjoy!

Superman vs. Doctor Strange

Superman’s outfit is basically the classic design but what makes this suit stand out are the metallic accents to the waist area. It makes the suit look alien and it provides a slightly epic feel to the overall outfit. Now I’ve never been a huge fan of Superman because of his suit; the red cape just never appealed to me, but I will admit that Henry Cavill wears it well and makes it not look as corny as it used to.

Doctor Strange’s outfit is also highly inspired by the original design from the comics and that’s why it’s perfect. The high collared red cloak provides an impeccable sorcerer sort of look and the dark blue robes and several belts also make him look different in a very good way. There is no doubt who I think wins this round.

Marvel: 1 point
