HOLY SH!T: This ‘Wonder Woman’ Fan Film is The Best Thing You’ll See All Day

Screen shot 2013-10-01 at 11.42.17 AM

I’ve lost count of how many times the Wonder Woman comic series has been considered for a television or film adaptation, but I know for a fact there have been at least two such attempts in the last five years. Now, after spending the majority of 2013 working in secret, the team at Rainfall Productions has released a two-and-a-half minute Wonder Woman fan film that leaves all previous attempts to bring the heroine to life looking like child’s play.

Hitting the net just over twenty-four hours ago, Wonder Woman is a short film that offers a glimpse at the possibilities of a big screen feature starring the iconic hero. The footage shows the DC Comic legends fighting crime on the streets of a war-torn metropolis, then cuts to a beautifully designed world meant to represent Wonder Woman’s home planet. It’s not long enough to tell much of a story, so we’ll leave the rest for the clip to reveal. You can view the short at the end of this post.

Speaking on the effort, director Sam Balcomb offered:

“Firstly, thanks for watching. Whether you like, or dislike, our live action interpretation of Diana of Themyscira, Wonder Woman, born of clay, I think (quite a few of) you will agree she is a character just as vital and crucial to our understanding of humanity as any other superhero… if not more so.

We spent the majority of 2013 working on this — the look, the feel, the aspects we most wanted to portray. It’s a scant two and half minutes, but in the end, it’s one hundred and fifty seconds of pure fantasy, where I get to consider the two sides of my favorite warrior: a crusader in man’s world, and a paragon of virtue told through Greek mythology.

It’s a fun world to hang out in. I hope you enjoy it.”

Personally, I’ve never been all that into the idea of a Wonder Woman feature, but having seen Rainfall’s latest effort I consider myself a fully converted believer in the power of Princess Diana of Themyscira. Would you pay to see a Wonder Woman film? Comment below and let us know your thoughts.

    Her home planet, uh, you mean Earth?
    I would love to see a Wonder Woman film but thought this was kind of awful. The whole, I am not sure what to do to make something seem impactful so I will try to cover by using slow mo schtick needs to be retired. Good lord, even the spear being thrown about 7 inches to WW used it.
    No doubt a lot of hard work was involved, but if this is what a new WW film would look like, I think fans deserve more.
