Danica Patrick Will Be Racing As Wonder Woman

Regardless of your personal feelings about racer Danica Patrick, her new paint job is damn impressive. Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment have decided to make DC-themed race cars a thing. Last season saw Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson racing as Batman and Superman to promote DC's Batman Vs. Superman and this season Patrick is taking the role as Wonder Woman.

Patrick will sport an awesome Wonder Woman paint scheme on her No. 10 Ford for two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season, which she revealed Wednesday night on FOX Sports' Race Hub. Because Danica Patrick shows up to #WonderWomanWednesday in style.

The car features the iconic Wonder Woman logo and a few shots of actress Gal Gadot from the upcoming film. The back of the car could stand to be more impressive than just a simple black paint job with a WW decal, since ideally that's how the other racers will see Patrick's car, but in the end it doesn't matter. Because this paint job is pretty sick.

Naturally, reactions to the car have been incredibly positive from race fans, Wonder Woman fans, and even the media.

Yeah, this is one for the record books. And it's a pretty interesting marketing choice considering the fact that, well, most of the marketing for the Wonder Woman has been lackluster or non-existent. And the recent leak of the film will potentially cost the production a decent chunk of money.

Hopefully this car and Patrick's driving can turn that right around. Because this is Wonder Woman, if any super hero deserves a blockbuster solo film that rakes a ton of money, it's Diana.
