I still don't want to see Zack Snyder's take on Wonder Woman

Now it's official: Wonder Woman will be introduced in the Man of Steel sequel, alongside Ben Affleck's Batman. And I stand by what I said before: Zack Snyder getting to be the one to introduce Wonder Woman on the big screen is a terrible idea. » 12/04/13 11:40am 12/04/13 11:40am

Now that The Man of Steel has set a new record for June movie openings, Warner Bros. is rushing ahead with plans to create a DC Universe on screen. Which means one thing: we'll finally get a big-screen version of Wonder Woman, and she'll probably be created by Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder.

Man of Steel: Worth It Just For The Super-Powered Combat

There's really only one reason to see the new Superman movie: to watch people with superhuman powers pounding the crap out of each other, flying into each other and burninating each other with heat vision.
