'Wonder Woman' Fan Film Trailer by Jesse V. Johnson

Latino Review got the exclusive on this fan film trailer of stuntman turned director, Jesse V. Johnson, and his vision for a Wonder Woman movie. As we've known for too long, the folks at DC and Warner Bros. seem incapable or unwilling to give the Amazonian Warrior princess her proper and long overdue respect in bringing one-third of DC Comics holy trinity a worthy feature film adaptation. Luckily, Johnson's experience in film afforded him the opportunity to show what he could do behind the camera by making this exciting Wonder Woman trailer.

Unlike many fan films floating around on the web this one has high production values and great special effects. Johnson enlisted the help of actors Nina Bergman as Wonder Woman and Peter Stormare as a Nazi interrogator to add some quality performances to the action-packed escape sequence. Johnson's manager believed in his directorial potential.

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Justice League of America, Saga, Happy, Nova and Green Arrow

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1
SYNOPSIS: The march toward TRINITY WAR begins with part one of “WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS”!
• Green Lantern! Green Arrow! Catwoman! Katana! Vibe! Hawkman! Stargirl! They aren’t the world’s greatest super heroes—they’re the most dangerous! But why does a team like the JLA need to exist?

REVIEW: Apparently, there is a need for another Justice League full of second tier members who are actually more interesting than their story-exhausted A-listers. Amanda Waller enlists Steve Trevor to helm this group of heroes and she explains their significance one by one in the first issue. It's basically a team set-up issue you'be seen before but Geoff Johns dialogue is brisk and feisty and while not a big David Finch fan his art is more than acceptable. A good start for the series and still a better team book than the dismal M…

Comic Book Quick Reviews: Katana, Deathmatch, and Cable and X-Force

Cable and X-Force #4

Synopsis: Witness the massacre that makes Cable and X-Force criminals. They can't go back from here?

Review: This series is getting better. The story line is picking up steam providing some great action with the group battling some grossly infected humans. The best part is how the characters interact with each other. A great team book involves unforced chemistry between members and this book has that. 






Deathmatch #2


Synopsis:The battle royale continues as the world’s greatest superheroes are forced to fight each other to the death in a mysterious, otherworldly prison. Who will be crowned the victor in this month’s grudge match? More importantly, who will be the loser? And will the cabal of Sable, Meridian, Sol Invictus, and the Manchurian be able to decipher the mysteries of the prison before one of them is selected to enter the arena? Written by industry legend Paul Jenkins (SENTRY, INHUMANS) and drawn by comics superstar Carlos Magno (PLANET OF THE APES, TRANSFO…
