Talking WONDER WOMAN Reviews, The Rock as the Wolfman, and a POWER RANGERS Sequel

High expectations have been the death of many a long-awaited feature film. After months, years, or–in this latest case–decades of anticipation, it’s tough for any feature to live up to all we’ve hoped it might someday be. But it doesn’t seem as though Wonder Woman is suffering under the weight of its 70-plus years of fervent fandom. In fact, Diana Prince’s first big screen solo outing may well be the most beloved superhero movie to hit theaters.

Like, ever.

Granted, it’s a bit too soon to make such a declaration, but we can say that reviews for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman have been nothing shy of overjoyed. On today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, host Jessica Chobot, Nerdist Managing Editor and Fangirling commandant Alicia Lutes (who was pretty fond of the flick herself) and Nerdist Senior Editor and The Dan Cave‘s own Dan Casey will tackle the question of whether Wonder Woman is indeed the best superhero movie yet, and what that might mean for the genre on the whole.

Stepping away from the realm of Themyscirian freedom fighters and into that of lovelorn monsters, we’ve heard that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may just take on the part of the Wolfman in the developing Dark Universe franchise, per Screen Rant. If the rumors are true, The Rock would join the likes of Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, and Russell Crowe for the film series, making for a pretty high-profile cast. Watch as Jess, Alicia, and Dan delve into The (decidedly hairless) Rock’s casting as the notorious werewolf, and into the promised caliber of the Dark Universe overall.

Finally, we touch base with our friends the Power Rangers, who may not be out of luck just yet. Sure, Power Rangers didn’t fare quite as well as expected at the foreign box office, but word is that a sequel may nevertheless be in the works. So what do we all want from a second outing with the mecha-suited teens?

Oh, one last thing: covfefe. That being the nonsense word that President Trump accidentally tweeted out around midnight last night, much to the internet’s delight. Rest assured, we’ve got plenty to say on the matter.

Thoughts on Wonder Woman‘s esteem, The Rock’s induction into the Dark Universe, a Power Rangers sequel, or Trump’s late night blatherings? Let us know!
