Wonder Woman has gotten its own spoof video explaining how the film should have ended. The film, which catapulted Gal Gadot as arguably DC Extended Universe's poster character, was by no means perfect, but it has some pretty strong elements to it with a steady storytelling tone and focused narrative that tied Diana Prince's origins story tidily. That said, this new clip counters the action-packed and emotional finale that the Patty Jenkins-directed movie delivered, making a case for how the movie's story should have panned out.
Officially crowned as this year's biggest summer film, Wonder Woman has made over $800 million globally -- more than half of it was from domestic ticket sales, prompting it to be part of an elite list of films which were able to nab more than $400 million in the United States. The movie was so successful that Warner Bros. has quickly green-lit a sequel which would just not see the return of Gadot as the titular character, but also Jenkins behind the camera after she has finally inked the deal to direct the follow-up film due on 2019.
The hilarious animated video clip has emerged courtesy of YouTube channel How It Should Have Ended which features a slew of funny possibilities at how Wonder Woman's story could have wrapped up. From Steve Trevor's (Chris Pine) supposed decision to just stay in Themyscira instead of enthused to be back in the thick of war to a reference to Diana's famous invincible jet. You can check out the full bit above.
Obviously, the video was by no means serious about its suggestions. And while we really do not have any problem with how Jenkins crafted the third act of the DCEU offering, it was definitely fun to tinker on all the possibilities that it laid out that could have impeded the natural progression of the story for Wonder Woman. Even at the very end, it pokes fun at the seemingly always Batman-driven narrative which from a business standpoint is understandable given his the Caped Crusader's large fan base. That, however, could change in future films with the immense success that the Amazonian Princess garnered both at the box office and in terms of critical reviews in just one film.
Speaking of Wonder Woman and Batman, fans can next catch up on the two DC juggernaut superheroes fighting Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons to protect the earth in Justice League. In a little bit more than two months, Warner Bros. will roll out its first ever ensemble film that would bring together the Bat of Gotham, the Amazonian Warrior, Superman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg which is officially fall's second most anticipated movie.
Wonder Woman is already available digitally with its Ultra HD Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD hitting stores on September 19.
