Wonder Woman Takes Out the Nazis


Female Super Hero Fan Film from Jesse V. Johnson on Vimeo.

Veteran stuntman Jesse V. Johnson (Lincoln, Thor, The Amazing Spider-Man) is trying to move up in the world. He’s directed a couple of straight-to-video titles starring Stone Cold Steve Austin but he really wants to direct big Hollywood action pictures. He rounded up $3500 and convinced a lot of friends to do favors so he could make this trailer for an imaginary Wonder Woman movie.

The trailer stars Danish singer Nina Bergman as Diana Prince and features all-time great movie bad guy Peter Stormare as her Nazi nemesis. Made without a proper license from the lawyers at DC Comics and Warner Bros. (note the carefully worded “Female Super Hero Fan Film” title), this imaginary movie seems to be the first sign of life for the Amazon after years of failed pilots and movie treatments from official Hollywood sources.

Give the guy a movie. or just let him finish this one.

    Beating up on Nazis is always popular: Witness the success of the 2009 film, “Inglorious Basterds.” Looking at their prissy uniforms and their goose-stepping, weren’t they kind of cartoony to start with?

    On the other hand, Diana Prince is definitely showing her years. Originally a submissive superheroine, who kept getting into kinky situations, she somehow turned into a feminist icon without giving up the showgirl costume or the bondage bracelets.

    As a martial arts star, WW never had much credibility: How does she get through so many fights without heavy bruising, or even breaking her nails? It isn’t hard to play WW2 for laughs, but putting the outcome in the hands of an amazon sex goddess does not have the makings of a blockbuster.

      This trailer looks like it is taking major pointers from the Avengers Captain America movie. At least her fighting looks more, well, like superhero fighting, as opposed to the footsie dancing many of the previous film attempts showcased.
