TEXAS — Actors and directors at the TFA awards ceremony have praised “Wonder Woman” and praised “The Good Dinosaur,” the first film to be adapted from a comic book.
The Oscar nominees at Sunday night’s awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, Calif., were the first to acknowledge their contributions to the comic book adaptation of “Wonder Boy and the Magical World of Gumball.”
“I’m so glad that we were able to bring that movie to the screen, and I think that’s what everybody’s been waiting for,” “Wonder Man” actor Ian McKellen said.
“We are really excited about it, we’re really excited to be able to be a part of it.”
The movie “Wonder Girl” is about a young girl who is abducted by a group of aliens and forced to fight to the death to protect her family from them.
It was adapted into a series of animated shorts in 2001 and 2006 and has grossed more than $1 billion at the global box office.
“Wonder Woman,” which opens on Aug. 1 in the U.S. and is directed by Patty Jenkins, was based on the character created by Diana Gabaldon in 1941.
She died in 2018.
The film is the first movie adapted from “Wonderboy,” but the filmmakers are also bringing “The Flash” and “Supergirl” to the big screen in 2018, with the latter based on DC Comics characters.
The new “Wonderman” is being produced by “Wonderwoman” writer Bryan Singer and “Wondergirl” producer Barbara Hershey.
The awards show was held in the Hollywood Hilton Hotel, where it will be held until June 7.
