A Wonder Girl Is Born…

ww gg

Many congratulations to Gal Gadot on the birth of her very own Wonder Girl!

The actress who is the new face of DC’s revolutionary Superhero, Wonder Woman, welcomed into the world a baby girl on Monday 20 March. The baby has been named Maya (what a missed opportunity to call her Donna Troy… oh well) and is healthy and happy. The birth comes just two months shy of Gal’s solo venture as Wonder Woman, which is set to release worldwide in June.


Gal wrote on her Instagram site “And then there were four… she is here, I feel so completely blessed and thankful for all the wonders in my life”  Gal and husband Yaron Versano are also the parents of a five year old daughter named Alma.

Dark Days Ahead For The Batman…

Since the 2011 crossover series “Flashpoint” DC haven’t ventured back into the franchise spanning event series that the company has become synonymous for since the very first “Crisis” storyline way back in the early 60’s. That’s all set to change this summer though as DC gear up for their next big event, Dark Days. DC Comics have announced the superstar team up of Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, Andy Kubert, John Romita Jr, and James Tynion IV for an initial two issue prologue beginning in June with – Dark Days: The Forge, closely followed in July by – Dark Days: The Casting.


The mini-series prelude promises to “reveal the dark underbelly of the DC Universe” before it heads into a new franchise wide serial event. Not a great deal more is known at this time, but it does appear as though it will be a Batman-centric arc that may, just, tie in with the recent Rebirth/Watchmen integration. We shall endeavour to keep you updated, fellow DC fanatics.

Gal Pays Homage To Lynda In New WW Promo Image…


An intriguing series of promotional images of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman that have been appearing on cans of Dr Pepper showcase new pictures of Diana Prince ready for battle in the highly anticipated June released movie. One in particular though appears to be a fond tribute to Lynda Carter’s 1970’s version of the Themysciran Titan. The quintessential ‘hands on hips’ Superhero pose was a favourite of Lynda in the classic show, and Gal’s version is equally as cool.

  1. Aw, good for Gal Gadot and her family. 🙂
    This Dark Days news is really, really exciting. I love being able to count on the Precinct for such awesome news! Thanks for the heads up as always. 😀
    I feel like this is so random, but Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman always reminds me so much of what my aunt looked like back in the day. Give her some pants and a tiny Pomeranian at her heels and it would be spot on! lol

    • I still think Gal missed a golden opportunity to name her new daughter Donna Troy… 😉 Dark Days is looking like another fantastic DC crossover event, I always look forward to their massive storylines that draw in virtually every character into a huge arc, apparently brand new heroes and villains will be born from this particular event! Your aunt looked like Lynda Carter!? that’s awesome!! Thanks for reading my friend. 🙂
