When LexCorps accidentally unleash a murderous creature, Doomsday, Superman meets his greatest challenge as a champion. Based on the "The Death of Superman" storyline that appeared in DC Comics' publications in the 1990s.
As the home planet of the Green Lantern Corps faces a battle with an ancient enemy, Hal Jordan prepares new recruit Arisia for the coming conflict by relating stories of the first Green Lantern and several of Hal's comrades.
Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
In antiquity, the Amazons defeat the war god, Ares, and Zeus charges them to hold him prisoner as eternally young warriors on the hidden island of Themyscira. Centuries later, US Air Force pilot Steve Trevor is lured to crash land on the island and the distraction of that trespass allows Ares to escape. In response, Princess Diana wins the responsibility to both take Trevor home and recapture the fugitive god. Steve Trevor offers to help and together this disparate pair must not only overcome Ares' efforts to achieve a bloody revenge, but also reconcile their own conflicting world views in an adventure that would be the first for the greatest of the female superheroes.

On the island, Diana has some difficulty subduing Steve Trevor, presumably a slightly-above average human strength-wise, yet later she shows she can effortlessly lift a desk with one and and battle a Greek god. See more »
You seem as eager to meet me on the battlefield as you once did in the bedroom, Hippolyta.
I only hope you prove more skilled in this arena, Ares.

Would just like to disagree with previous comments because i really enjoyed this movie.This time around Wonder Woman was not portrayed as pageant queen with a rope but as a powerhouse warrior.She is not a bouncy beauty queen in a swim suit,she is an amazon.They are born for battle and raised to fight for the greater good.This movie stayed so true to the origin and even gave the characters more personality.She is one kick ass broad and her character in the film could have just as easily been male.Wonder Woman is an icon and a very strong woman who while being kind hearted also knows how to be tough when needed.i recommend this movie to anyone who loves comics and the character and I'm a really picky person when it comes to my DC characters.
