Late last week, a surprising topic of online conversation revolved around the amount of marketing for the upcoming “Wonder Woman” film, or rather the lack of it.
There’s been notable trailers and posters, but no real TV push and seemingly not as strong a promotional push as there was for “Suicide Squad” and “Batman v Superman” at the same point (about one month out) before their releases.
Most ties back to a piece on Uproxx which offers an interesting if under analyzed take which Vanity Fair quickly shot down. The latter says Warners has actually spent more on TV ads for ‘Woman’ at this time than they had for “Suicide Squad” five weeks out – the marketing using notable events like the Kids Choice Awards and the N.C.A.A. finals for promotional pushes over random blanket ads.
Also today, several new photos a new extended TV spot have gone online, the latter aired during last night’s episode of “Gotham”. The clip includes several bits of new footage, and plays up the action and period elements. “Wonder Woman” opens June 2nd.
