This week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News is one of our most popular every year as the hosts each reveal their most anticipated films of 2017!

Following hard on the heels of yesterday’s release of the first poster for Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. brought the first trailer for the film to the Con today.
The trailer shows Princess Diana discovering Steve Trevor washed up on the shores of Themiscyra and quick moves through her arrival in Man’s World and its levels (poor fishing village, glittering party) before finding herself in the middle of WWI.

If you didn’t watch The CW’s special on bringing the Justice League Universe to film, you missed its exclusive first look at footage from the Wonder Woman movie.
