Yeah, I don’t remember the Batman v. Superman promotional deals with diet protein bars.

She’s a comic book superhero. She should be marketed like a goddamn comic book superhero.

If that’s what the marketers are making all the male superheroes do, then yes. :-)

It was a standard ad in DC comics in the 1970s-1980s – a half-page superhero story, using one of the actual characters, in which the Twinkies were instrumental in the defeat of the bad guys.

Has anyone else seen any TV ads? I’ve seen exactly two. One on Samantha Bee’s show and one on iZombie.

If this were a movie about a male super-hero, I’d say that the strategy makes a lot of sense. There’s no need to saturate the market with ads for a movie that’s going to get a ton of press, anyway. But I have a feeling that when the other Justice League characters get their movies, we’re going to see ads round the clock. Imagine: 24 hours of Aquaman.

But this weekend, I’m at a steampunk convention, where I can see Wonder Woman in lots of different ages and body types, including a little girl with a very elaborate costume.

I’ve seen several, but the only shows I watch on TV now are Doctor Who and Agents of Shield.

Saw her on boxes of Diet Dr. Pepper. The marketing for this film truly is bizarre. Who do they think they’re targeting? Because right now it seems like diabetics.

It’s ladies! Ladies are the target.

Soon we will have an ad in which Wonder Woman laughs while eating salad.

As long as it’s not an ad in which she’s struggling to drink water.

Barbie has some cool sets for the new film. I say that in all seriousness because I am a feminist mom who loves barbies. I am holding my breath and hoping I can take my daughters to see WW kick some ass.
