Wonder Woman News

Hey! We got some news on the upcoming straight-to-DVD Wonder Woman movie!

As I've blogged about several times before, Warner Brothers and DC Comics are pumping out a series of straight-to-DVD animated movies based on various superheroes. The first one was Superman: Doomsday, which came out last fall. Second was Justice League: The New Frontier, which came out in the spring. Third is the Batman-anime Batman: Gotham Knight that comes out in two weeks.

And #4 will be Wonder Woman, due out this fall. There's a featurette about it on Batman: Gotham Knight, and as people are starting to watch said featurette, we're learning more about it.

It's already been known for some time now that Keri Russell will be voicing Wonder Woman and Nathan Fillion will be voicing Wonder Woman's love interest and damsel-in-distress Steve Trevor.

We got more members of the voice cast now! Joining them will be:

Virginia Madsen as Queen Hippolyta, ruler of the Amazons and Wonder Woman's mother.

Alfred Molina as Ares. The God of War is always trying to start World War III and gain himself some new worshipers. He's one of Wonder Woman's most difficult foes.

And, coolest of all, Rosario Dawson as Artemis. Gotta point out here that this is not the goddess Artemis, but the leader of a tribe of Amazons who set up their own colony in Egypt many generations ago. Artemis even briefly took on the mantle of Wonder Woman in the mid-90s.

I really hope this one is good.
