Classic Era and Other Adaptations

  • Wonder Woman (1974)
    • We begin our dive of cinematic Wonder Woman with a look at the first attempt to adapt Diana Prince for any screen, starting with the original TV Movie that would (with a lot of changes) launch the coming TV series.
  • Wonder Woman (1975)
    • One year later, Wonder Woman was back, now played by Linda Carter for her three seasons of adventures. The show was campy, but fun in its own way.
  • Wonder Woman (2009)
    • Before the DC Animated Universe there was an attempt to make an animated Wondie adventure. We take a dive in to see how it fares against what came after.
  • Wonder Woman (2011)
    • This unaired pilot was supposed to launch a new Wonder Woman series. Instead it was so embarassingly bad that DC buried it, never to be see again. If we can ever track this down, we'll review it as well.

DC Extended Universe

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (DCEU 02)
    • After the relative success of Man of Steel (a film that made good money but didn't seem to really have the backing of critics or fans), DC followed it up with a semi-sequel, semi-crossover, putting in the only character in comics arguably bigger than Superman: the Batman. Sadly, the results were just not good.
  • Wonder Woman (DCEU 04)
    • Staggering and bloody, the DCEU needed a win, and it finally got one with the World War I-set Wonder Woman. This film did everything the other movies in the cinematic universe, and, above all, was fun. DC would learn their lesson after this... eventually.
  • Justice League (DCEU 05)
    • The production of Justice League was troubled, with original director Zack Snyder leaving part way in (for family reasons) and Joss Wheddon coming in to do extensive rewrites and re-edits. Although the final film is watchable, it's still not great in comparison to the filmic output of Marvel.

DC Animated Movie Universe

  • Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (DCAMU 00)
    • Before we get to the new universe, we have to reboot away the old one. Or, in this case, several old ones as the current "Prime" continuity for this film is really an amalgamation of various versions of DC continuity that's come before. And then Flash goes back in time and ruins everything.
  • Justice League: War (DCAMU 01)
    • Now in a fresh, New 52-inspired continuity, we pick up with our favorite, familiar heroes as they set off on their first adventure together, a battle against the evil supervillain, Darkseid. Earth is doomed.
  • Justice League: Throne of Atlantis (DCAMU 03)
    • Introducing another new hero for the league, this movie gives us Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, four years before a similar adventure would come out on the big screen.
  • Justice League vs. Teen Titans (DCAMU 06)
    • Damien Wayne doesn't play well with others, a trait his father would like to see changed. So he's put on a team with other supepr-powered teens to see if they can work together for once. Probably not, though.
  • The Death of Superman (DCAMU 10)
    • When a movie has a title like this, I think we all know what's coming. Based on the comic series of the same name, this film is only going to end one way, and it won't go well for our titular character.
  • Reign of the Supermen (DCAMU 12)
    • Spoiler: Superman probably comes back in this one. If that's a surprise, seriously, go read some comics.
  • Wonder Woman: Bloodlines (DCAMU 14)
    • Wonder Woman finally gets her own movie in this series, and she's taking on Cheetah, Dr. Poison, and Medusa for the fate of the Amazons.

Other Films

  • Superman: Red Son
    • This Elseworlds tale (based on the comic of the same name) asks what would happen if Superman's ship had crashed into Mother Russia instead of the middle of Kansas.
