I'm noticing a theme this week. Fan-made material appears to be getting a LOT of buzz in the month of February. A new Resident Evil fan film was just made, Infinities Edge Studios unveiled Tomb Raider fan film with another fan tribute along the way, and Eric Jacobus's new Star Wars experimental FPS, Vader Strikes, has garnished over 100, 000 views in just two days on Youtube.
Pan over to Jessie V. Johnson, who has gained well over 20 years of credentials as a stuntman, writer, producer, cameraman, stunt coordinator and action filmmaker, and decided to bring his experience to a new level, with a conceptual approach to a Wonder Woman movie fan trailer, starring Nina Bergman in the title role with Peter Stomare. Time to forward the legal jargon...

The folks over at Latino Review got to speak with the director on what inspired this latest move:
It was my manager / producing partner Kailey Marsh’s idea to shoot the trailer. She really believes I should be a studio director, and thought shooting Wonder Woman would be a great way to show off my skills in a fun way that people could get excited about.
This comes almost two years after NBC canceled its Wonder Woman series starring Adrianne Palicki, who will be appearing as Lady Jaye in the new film, G.I.Joe: Retaliation on March 29, 2013.
