Great Hera! People who are tired and miffed at Warner Brothers and DC Comic’s inability and absolute fear to produce Wonder Woman media (be it films, animated TV shows or a new TV series; hint get Greg Rucka and Ben Caldwell on that you’ll be good to go fellas not that hard) are going to get a treat this month. From LA based Los Angeles production/post company Rainfall comes a presumed unofficial short two minute concept fanfilm starring America’s most iconic female superhero later this month. Rainfall, which boasts some pretty impressive production credits to their name from music videos to commercials and others in their only five years of existence seems to be giving it their all from their teaser images since the announcement at Comic-Con.
Looking at Wonder Woman’s pteruges to other visual effects seen in their teaser images of Diana and the Amazons preparing for an imminent threat; Rainfall may single handily prove DC’s extreme phobia of the Amazon princess and all her tiara and stars and their dismissal of a summer blockbuster treatment for her entirely moot. And I know we’ll lap it up as it occurs as I’m sure everyone else will too. Because let’s face it; mismanagement and poor decisions are DC’s and more and more Warner Brother’s specialty outside of their animated fare, and even that can get ugly (see Young Justice‘s constant hiatuses and Green Lantern The Animated Series and both series’ cancellations). Luckily the conceptual piece, again only about two minutes total, isn’t from DC itself so the fear of staring down Medusa well, quite frankly isn’t there.
Directed by Sam Balcomb (who with his wife are self professed Wonder Woman fanatics; every incarnation since the 1940’s) and starring comic geek Rileah Vanderbilt (of Team Unicorn and Grayson: Earth One webseries) as Diana, Princess of Themyscira, expect this gift from the gods to land sometime later this month and stay tuned for any media updates for this short conceptual piece and if it sparks any additional projects (hello TV series anyone? Feature film? Webseries? Okay I’ll take anything do you see how desperate I am?)
How bad do you want to see Wonder Woman on the big screen?
