Warner Events: Posters for 'Kong: Skull Island' and 'Wonder Woman' Revealed


Two big Warner Bros. blockbuster films got their teaser posters...

The first of which is Kong: Skull Island, Legendary's new take on the 8th Wonder of the World. This film, as reported before, will tie into the kaiju universe set up in Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. It'll be set in the 70s and will - according to director Jordan Vogt-Roberts - emphasize how the 70s "was a time where it was believable that we could still be confronted with myth. And there was still unknown in the world."

Instead of straight up remaking the story of the 1933 classic, like Peter Jackson's - in my mind pretty darn good - adaptation did, Skull Island will reintroduce Kong, a much bigger Kong, in a different time and won't be a "beauty and the beast" story. I like that, plus the picture has a solid cast, it's from Legendary, and it's sure to be pretty darn good. I liked the divisive Godzilla a great deal, I'm sure I'll love this. It's too bad they won't tie into Pacific Rim-verse, though...

Warner Bros. is finally getting some marketing going for this $190 million-costing monster mash. In time for Comic-Con, the teaser poster has finally been released...


I love it. I'm getting real Godzilla vibes here, and that's not because it's a giant monster movie. No, it recalls the scene where the flares are fired off into the air during the Honolulu attack, partially revealing the King of the Monsters as suspense builds and builds. Hopefully the trailer goes over successfully so that in March many audiences will say, "I'll be there opening night!"

The other poster revealed this week was for the DC Cinematic Universe's next, Wonder Woman...


What's this? A poster for a post-Nolan DC film with some pops of color?

It's very nice, and with all the reports of DC being turned around and sporting new management spearheaded by Geoff Johns (who is also writing this film's script), I'm a little optimistic for this film. Plus the World War I setting has me interested as well. Suicide Squad looks to be the first - depending on where you stand on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman - legitimately good entry in this series, so it could get better from there. As long as Wonder Woman tells a fine story and has a good time doing it, we should be A-OK.

What do you think of these two posters? Sound off below!
