The First Wonder Woman Footage to Debut During Tonight's Justice League Special
We already knew that tonight's DC special on The CW would include a preview of future Justice League movies and a new Suicide Squad trailer. Now, host Kevin Smith reveals that we will see the first bonafide footage from the first female-led movie in any of the current superhero franchises, Wonder Woman.

Opening quote
"They show footage, new footage of 'Batman v Superman,' they show footage from the Wonder Woman movie that they're shooting right now, which includes shots of Wonder Woman in action doing some shit you've never seen before," Smith said on the latest episode of his and Marc Bernardin's podcast, "Fat Man on Batman." "Then the whole fucking thing wraps up with the debut of the Suicide Squad trailer."
Closing quote



Wonder Woman has been relatively quiet so far, with just a few set pictures here and there. We technically saw her in action in the Batman v Superman trailer, but in this footage, she'll finally get to be front-and-center. Plus, she'll probably get to actually speak this time, so that's good.

Smith also previewed the Suicide Squad trailer, which he claims is bound to get a great reception from fans:

Opening quote
"I think this is [Warner Bros.'] 'Guardians of the Galaxy,'" Smith said. "It's going to be a sneak, fucking stealth hit... It's going to permeate beyond [comic book fans'] world."
Closing quote

Suicide Squad seems much darker than Guardians of the Galaxy, and has much better-known characters on its side, but I can see it becoming another GotG in the sense that it's quirky and weird and becomes a phenomenon when no one's looking. Batman v Superman has gotten more attention so far, but I'm much more excited for Suicide Squad, as it seems to have a much more distinctive feel to it (much like Guardians).

The Justice League special, "Dawn of the Justice League," will air tonight at 9:30pm ET on The CW, immediately following the DC Legends of Tomorrow preview, "Their Time Is Now."
