Trailer Review: Wonder Woman Protects Man’s World in Bloodlines
Riding on the success of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, DC and Warner Bros. made a surprising announcement at the SDCC ‘19 – a new Wonder Woman animated movie set in the DC Universe named Bloodlines.
The news got the fans talking as there isn’t a Wonder Woman comic by the same name, which meant the studio was working on a new storyline for the Amazonian superhero.
Two weeks after the announcement, we finally get to see a glimpse of the story DC has to tell with Wonder Woman: Bloodlines in an exclusive trailer released via IGN.
The trailer opens with an arc well-known to all the Wonder Woman fans – Princess Diana saving Steve Trevor after his plane crashes into the mystical island of Themyscira.
It looks like DC is using Wonder Woman’s origin story as a backdrop to set up what they are calling Wonder Woman’s greatest fight yet as she tries to find her way back home.
The 2-min trailer also introduces us to a bunch of bad guys from the Villainy Inc. that are about to get slayed by Princess Diana of Themyscira. Some of the characters we see are Silver Swan, Giganta, Cheetah, Dr. Poison, Dr. Cyber and Veronica Cale.
Rosario Dawson reprises her role as the voice of Wonder Woman for the 5th time. The rest of the voice cast includes:
- Jeffrey Donovan as Steve Trevor
- Marie Avgeropoulos as Vanessa Kapatelis/Silver Swan
- Kimberly Brooks as Cheetah and Giganta
- Michael Dorn as Ferdinand
- Ray Chase as the Lead Bandit
- Mozhan Marno as Doctor Cyber
- Adrienne C. Moore as Etta Candy
- Courtenay Taylor as Doctor Poison
- Nia Vardalos as Julia Kapatelis
- Constance Zimmer as Veronica Cale
Wonder Woman: Bloodlines is the 36th movie in the DC Universe Movies and it will surely fill in the gap for someone who needs a dose of an action packed Wonder Woman story until Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman 1984 comes out in 2020.
Here’s the official synopsis for Wonder Woman: Bloodlines:
“Amazon princess Diana of Themyscira chooses to save fighter pilot Steve Trevor and return him to his home in America – setting in motion one of Wonder Woman’s most captivating chapters. Fulfilling the role of both ambassador as well as protector, Diana soon earns the name Wonder Woman from the gracious people of Earth. Equally strong in body, heart and will, she makes it her mission to help a troubled young girl enlisted by a deadly organization known as Villainy, Inc., whose criminal members have their sights set on invading Themyscira, Diana’s paradise home.”
Will Princess Diana find her way back home and save it? We’ll find out when it releases on 22nd October, 2019 in 4K, Blu-Ray and DVD.
