Wonder Woman is truly ruling the new superhero age, where the male dominance is not necessary any-more! And this news will really bring the smile to many of you who are also a fan of Princess Diana of Amazon. Thanks to the last year’s DC blockbuster, Gal Gadot has really swayed the world by her Wonder Woman impact that has literally taken over the already established superheroes who were fan favorites for many years, until now.

Wonder Woman Becomes The Most Popular SuperHero among Australian kids

A recent survey among the kids has found out that Wonder Woman is the most popular superhero in Australia, defeating the likes of former bests, Batman and Superman! The other competitors included the likes of Spider-Man, Captain America, Hulk and many more.

The research conducted by Roy Morgan’s found out that out of 2500 kids he surveyed aged between 6-13 years, Wonder Woman was the most loved comic book superhero.

This survey’s data was then extrapolated for the Australian population and after which the results that came were astonishing in comparison of the most popular superheroes in recent years.

The results showed that Wonder Woman’s popularity had grown since 2016 and around 368,000 kids chose the Amazonian goddess over her famous male counterparts. It’s an increase of 192,000 in 2 years since in 2016, it was only around 176,000.

In the top 5, there were four DC superheroes, and only one was from Marvel, and without any doubt, it’s Spider-Man. After Wonder Woman, on the second spot is Batman, then Spider-Man, Superman and Flash. Batman was still the choice of around 303,000 kids, though it was a decrease of 80,000 from 2016.

Other than the top five superheroes, the other three were Hulk, Iron Man and Captain, coming at 6th, 7th, and 8th spots, respectively.

Actress Gal Gadot has really brought wonders for the DC’s strongest comic-book female superhero, and she’s now gaining her own recognition instead of being recognized as one of the members of the Trinity, the nickname for the trio of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, in the comics.

Last year, the first ever live-action feature film on Wonder Woman smashed many box-office records and was the biggest hit of summer. It made Gal Gadot a household name and even brought her accolades for her performance and acting prowess. Along with it, the direction of Patty Jenkins was just fabulous to watch.

The film even came close to being nominated for prestigious Oscar categories, like the best director, best picture. And now, its sequel, Wonder Woman 84, is also going to release next year.

Following the footsteps of DC, Marvel will also come up with its first ever female superhero movie, Captain Marvel, in March 2019. It only means one thing, for sure, that gone are the days when superheroes were only known by male faces and figures. The future of women domination is here to stay and spread-both in fiction and reality.

Developed by Eidos Montreal, in a collaboration with Crystal Dynamics, and published by Square Enix, the rebooted trilogy’s finale to Lara Croft’s journey is a joyride for those who are in love with the #1 female gaming icon. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the perfect ending to a story which started in 2013 when a new life was infused into the character and it was a phenomenon that made Lara more than being just a sex symbol, as far as her ‘old and desirable looks’ are concerned.

And this last entry into the now popular gaming series is the best tribute to a fantastic adventurous protagonist. The experience of the gaming atmosphere this game gives you is amazing where you can really see and discover the natural forests, wildlife and culture, playing as Lara.

This is one gaming series which never ceases to woo us. Be it any version, but the levels and missions seem to be getting more intriguing one after the other. And Assassin’s Creed Odyssey just takes it all on a whole new level of detailing and picturesque settings-along with some exceptional gameplay.

This time you also get an option (very much needed) to play either as a male (Alexios) or female (Kassandra). And the way the characters are portrayed combining facial expressions and voices, is commendable. You see it everywhere throughout the gameplay. In-between cinematic sequences also prove to be great in this one.

A must have for the die-hard Assassin’s Creed fans. AC: Odyssey is developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft.

Release Date: Already released on October 5th 2018.

Marvel’s Spider-Man

Yes, for the first time the gamers have got the chance of really connecting with their beloved childhood superhero in a never-seen-before, fresh take.

Along with the brilliant gameplay, you want to connect with Parker in an emotional way too-now that’s the highest praise, that a game can get, right?

And that ending! Everyone’s talking about that final ending; not a single gamer who’s completed the game can stop crying. You want to know why? Just grab the game copy now and you’ll know it.

The sequel to 2010’s GOW III, and eighth entry in the series overall, the new God of War can be described in just one word as being awesome. It hasn’t got anything that goes against it. That means the game story, character building, gameplay, fantastic action quality and all that it offers.

As far as the story setting is concerned, where it’s predecessors were loosely based on Greek mythology, the latest GOW is based on Norse mythology (don’t think too much; you won’t be seeing Thor here).

Kratos is a popular and beloved protagonist in this franchise and the fans of him will love him even more, along with his son, Atreus. Together they go on a journey to fulfill a promise of Kratos’s second wife (and mother of Atreus), of spreading her ashes at the highest peak of the nine realms. In this journey, they must overcome every monster and gods of the Norse world.

The game is developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Release Date: Already released on April 20th 2018.

Not only this, both the previous installments have been great box-office successes. Where Unbreakable earned about $248 million, it’s follow up, Split grossed around $278 million, worldwide.

Yes! James Gunn is now writing the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2

Yes! James Gunn is now writing the script for DC’s Suicide Squad 2

Putting a stop on the rumor train, it’s now been officially confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, will helm DC’s Suicide Squad 2 movie. Yes, you heard that right. Warner Bros has just recently confirmed that the director has now started writing the story for their film.

After being fired by Disney from Marvel Studios, he was approached by its rival, DC, and since then there were strong predictions that he might end up joining the ‘Worlds of DC’ for its new film. And as expected, it’s happening now.

According to BBC’s Newsbeat, the sources close to this matter told that the director ‘has an eye’ to direct the sequel to 2016’s super villain team-up flick. The first Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer, was a disappointment with the critics, gaining poor reviews but was a very commercially hit film with the audiences. It grossed around $746 million worldwide.

But an even more surprising thing is that Dave Bautista, the actor who plays Drax in the GOTG movies, has also offered to join Gunn on his new DC project. Bautista asked Marvel earlier in August, to release him if they didn’t use the script written by James Gunn for Guardians of Galaxy 3.’

Dave Bautista has always been in support of the director and after he was fired, he along with the rest of the cast of the Guardians of Galaxy, namely Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, had signed an open letter in support of James Gunn, to force Disney to bring him back. But the move didn’t go as well as expected.

James Gunn had tweeted posts mocking pedophilia and rape, back in 2009, but had apologized for them in 2012 itself. But lately, this year in July, a right-wing online website Daily Caller published them and brought those tweets in limelight on social media, after which Disney, which is a family-friendly entertainment company, fired him spontaneously.

But now that James Gunn has actually joined DC, it will be highly interesting to see whether he is able to pull off Suicide Squad 2 in a great manner or not. He made Guardians the most popular superhero characters among the fans in Marvel, so DC’s expectations will be high too.

Fans of the GOTG and James Gunn had also filed a petition, previously to Disney, to bring the director back. But that too didn’t happen.
