Warner Bros. finally got their Dceu superhero universe back on track with Wonder Woman, which has become not only one of the highest-grossing movies ($412.4 million domestic) of the year, but also one of the most critically-acclaimed (92% on Rotten Tomatoes) as well. There had been a report from late July that claimed Warner Bros. was planning a Wonder Woman Oscar campaign, and now that has been confirmed, with the studio launching an official "for your consideration" website for Wonder Woman, along with three more potential Oscar contenders, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 and Chris McKay's The Lego Batman Movie.
The studio only has three more movies coming out this year, with this weekend's disaster thriller Geostorm, Justice League (November 17) and the comedy Father Figures (December 22), so it seems that Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 and The Lego Batman Movie represent the studio's best chance »
20th Century Fox wasted little time in pushing Logan to the Oscar voters, and now Warner Bros. has kicked off its own Academy Award campaign for this year’s acclaimed DC blockbuster Wonder Woman by launching a For Your Consideration page. The studio has put the film forward for fifteen categories, including Best Picture, Best Director (Patty Jenkins) and Best Actress (Gal Gadot).

Wonder Woman — which just completed its second weekend atop the domestic box office — begins on Themyscira, the breathtaking island that Diana calls home and also one of the most challenging aspects of the film's production design.
“We talked about creating a beautiful island, but not being too close to the Greek islands, which is the obvious inspiration,” explains two-time Oscar nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement). “We wanted a beautiful, natural environment that the Amazons protect as the environment protects them.
