Wow can't wait! I've NEVER heard a soundtrack with a wailing woman and super pounding drums before. So original!

Yeah, it should have a traditional orchestral score. NEVER heard one of those before... So original!

Looks and sounds like every other modern day film, yet I'm intrigued. Meaning this looks promising despite itself.

LOVE that they threw in Zimmers theme at the end. Hope they retain it for the film. Best thing I liked about the BvS score.

Looks like Rupert Gregson-Williams is onboard.

Damn it. They made such a big deal about getting a female director for this, I held out a little bit of hope that a talented female composer would be given a break on the project. After all, female composers are a lot more marginalized than female directors.

Of course in a perfect world, guys would score Wonder Woman and women would score Batman (yeah yeah, but I'm talking big budget live action). It wouldn't matter. But even if it's just a lame excuse, I'll take whatever excuse I can get to have someone talented like Shirley Walker's protege Lolita Ritmanis step into the big leagues.

On a positive note, both the teaser and the trailer have me pretty pumped for the movie, despite how terrible DC films have been of late. I think this could be really good. WWI setting. Cool cast. Gadot seems like she's growing a bit as an actor and frankly Lucy Davis seems like she's going to steal every scene she's in. A needed bit of levity for the new DC "cinematic universe". I've been a fan of hers ever since the 1995 Pride and Prejudice so it's neat to see her get a role in a big budget Hollywood film.

Can't say I'm with everyone else getting excited by the Zimmer theme reuse at the end of both trailers though. What exactly is so great about it musically? What about it says "Wonder Woman"?

Coulda been worse.

I still maintain that the best course of action would've been a) hiring Debbie Wiseman and b) leaving her the f__k alone, but would either of those things really have happened in current Hollywood?

That's not to say they didn't, after all. There could have been a female composer onboard that wasn't working out. Many times these days we find out about an assignment after the score has been recorded, even a replacement score.

Did Rupert get a new agent or Hans started to push him though? Or maybe it's Adam Sandler who finally freed him from his Happy Madison prison. Either way, it could be good, but that WW "theme" sure is not going anywhere.

I'm all for this decision and hope they keep Zimmers theme for her. Kick ass.

Rupert has done some fine work so I'm not too disheartened by this HOWEVER it would have been nice to have Anne Dudley, or Rachel Portman or Debbie Wiseman or any other notable female composers on this project. Dudley in particular has been able to write fairly large scale music (American History X is a wonderful score that sounds BIG).

Pity that the production didn't stay consistent with the ideology of having women as the chief participants...

I know I'm in the minority but I do hope the score retains Zimmers motif with that grinding guitar. I dug that the best from his BvS score.

I get that that Zimmer motif is sort of a cool little riff...but how exactly does it speak to the character of Wonder Woman? Given her origins I don't get it.

And now the final trailer:



yuck..

Would have been better tracked to Horner's Glory mixed in with Willow.... Or Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Orff's Carmina Burana. Anything but the sludge that this trailer has.

I was interested in this film but not as much after seeing this and that quick alley scene. What a bummer.
