Wonder Woman: The Art and Making of the Film book review

After a successful art book for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Titan Books is back with one for Wonder Woman as well.

“Wonder Woman: The Art and Making of the Film” by Sharon Gosling is 192 pages of brand new photos, concept art, and behind-the-scenes images that show you how the first Wonder Woman movie was brought to life. It’s not all pretty pictures, however. There’s great insight from producer/story writer Zack Snyder, costume designer Lindy Hemming, production designer Aline Bonetto, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, and more.

The book even starts off with a foreword by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. Here she explains what Wonder Woman as a character means to her and gives a shout out to the talented people involved who helped her tell this story. She concludes her words with the clever sentence “Hope you enjoy and thanks for your interest in our gal Wonder Woman.”

The book is split into different sections, starting with Themyscira. Here we get to see tons of concept art of the island and the costumes for all of the strong Amazon warriors. The book seems to go in order of the events from the movie. So after Themyscira we are greeted with sections called “The Journey” and “Man’s World”, leading all the way to the end of the book with concept art from the battle with Ares.

My favorite part of the book is all of the never-before-scene photos it includes. Warner Bros. released about 75 Wonder Woman photos online, but this book has hundreds more. This is large hardcover book, and the picture quality is great. And as a bonus for Batman fans, it includes an envelope from Wayne Enterprises taped to the very back cover of the book. Inside, is a negative print of the photo that Bruce Wayne sends Wonder Woman in the movie. It’s a cool collectible and an added bonus for what’s already a great value.

In conclusion, if you were a fan of Wonder Woman and want to experience more through great photos, I can highly recommend “Wonder Woman: The Art and Making of the Film”. At just $29 on Amazon it’s a steal.

Thanks to Titan Books for providing Batman News with a review copy.
