Why Wonder Woman Is The Best Announcement At The Game Awards

One reader hopes that the announcement of a Wonder Woman game means Warner Bros. DC Comics serious game.

I won’t pretend to stay up all night to watch The Game Awards on Thursday/Friday. It all seems to add up to a total of almost four hours, which is silly for anyone going to work in the morning. If it’s the same as before though it’s probably just a horrible mix of ads within ads so I’m glad I was able to skip the good parts when I woke up the next morning.

I’m especially glad I didn’t stay as it wasn’t a particularly good selection of announcements. It’s probably more of Covid’s fault than anything else, but nothing in particular stuck me out other than Slitterhead and Star Wars: Eclipse (until I found out Quantic Dream was doing it). As a DC Comics fan, though, by far the most exciting reveal, even though they don’t actually show anything, is Wonder Woman.

As has been pointed out for years now, including on Inbox, Wonder Woman is the perfect superhero to turn into a video game, as she has various powers, can kill when necessary, and While her gallery isn’t the best she’s always been battling the gods and monsters of Greek mythology – so there’s a bunch of forage enemies built in. If it weren’t for… she’s a woman, they would have made a game of her years ago. But luckily, things are a little more enlightened these days and we’ve finally got one.

Diana has always been one of my favorite characters because she’s such a complicated character trying to spread peace and love, yet has the short temper and doesn’t have Batman’s no-kill rule. She wants everyone involved but she’s ready to bang her head if someone stops it from happening. She is almost as strong and invulnerable as Superman but is a better trained fighter and has no special weaknesses, so she could be said to be more dangerous.

Not only does the fact that a great character is finally coming to a due (especially given the way she’s horribly handled in Injustice) excites me, but this hopefully means Warner has acknowledged the complaints. complain that all they used to do was make Batman games and are now looking to expand their reach.

Admittedly, Wonder Woman was probably set after the success of the original film, which was followed by Wonder Woman 1984, but if that’s the logic I would imagine they’ve most likely started working on a new one as well. the Aquaman game, for that makes even more money (over a billion, I’m surprised to hear – apparently China really likes it).

It didn’t work out either, but there might well be a Shazam movie in development, given it’s been very well reviewed and has a lot of obvious potential. Suicide Squad was probably teased based on the original movie, so I think that’s most likely the logic Warner is using. Though, to be honest, I’m not impressed by anything I’ve seen of Rocksteady’s game so far. It looks really generic in terms of action and I’m sick and tired of seeing ‘evil’ versions of heroes instead of their proper incarnations.

That’s what I hope for most in Wonder Woman. That they would portray her as a good and noble character, which, since the film has achieved that, is hopefully possible. They can then do the same thing with Superman (watch the new show, which just started on BBC, to see how the character will act) and we can finally form an opinion that Superman is ‘boring’.

If these games are successful, I hope they have the confidence to make games based on the characters regardless of whether they have a movie coming out or not. Green Lantern has long been a good game, and Blue Beetle (whose film is in development) will work very easily.

Honestly, I’m not sure how you would describe the power of Flash in a game but there are plenty of other things that would be easy and fun, including Atom, Green Arrow, Stargirl, Teen Titans, John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna, Black Canary, Etrigan the Demon, Adam Strange, Deadman, and Metamorpho.

And before anyone says they’ve never heard of any of them, as if that’s an excuse not to do them, just consider how many Marvel superheroes you’ve heard of when they have a first movie. Unfortunately, most people hadn’t even heard of Iron Man before the MCU started.

I’m perhaps being overly optimistic here, but I hope that the Wonder Woman game means Warner is finally ready to take advantage of everything DC Comics has to offer and I’m really looking forward to seeing where we go. where from here.
