Wonder Woman Calls Batman & Superman 'Little Boys' In New Audio Clip

"Saturation marketing" used to be the way to go for Hollywood blockbusters, but fell out of favor after expensive promotional events preceded box-office misfires like Last Action Hero in the '90s. It looks to be back in a big way for 2016, however, with Fox's full-court-press for Deadpool already credited with helping turn that mid-budget Marvel-spoof into a shocking box-office behemoth, and Warner Bros on track to outdo them with the truly staggering amount of trailers, teasers, TV spots and early looks that have been unleash to hype the high-stakes release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

The latest new sliver of new promotion: An audio sample from a Chinese press-event, offering some sharp-tongued new dialogue and a clearer listen to Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman voice.

The audio sample, posted as a video clip to Twitter, appears to be taken from a not previously available trailer or TV spot for the upcoming superhero blockbuster, and finds Wonder Woman evidently giving her brawling male colleagues a dismissive dressing-down. It's just about possible to make out from the monitors in the background that the audio is taken from the scene of Lex Luthor's party, where all three superheroes are incognito, and Diana/Wonder Woman can be heard sarcastically opining, "You know, it's true what they say about little boys: Born with no natural inclination to share."

The two sentences are broken up by a brief pop of music and sound-effects, meaning that it's possible that the two sentences are not connected in the film the way they appear to be in this sample. Either way, her tone and choice of words offer some fresh insight into the film's characterization of the classic DC heroine, whose actual personality, role in the film, and place in the broader DC Extended Universe plan are among the few aspects of Batman V Superman that don't feel like they've been revealed in full at this point.
