While the movie’s release is still a year away, Warner Bros. has revealed the official trailer for Wonder Woman. And it doesn’t disappoint.
While Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice featured a reluctant Wonder Woman attempting to avoid conflict, we weren’t sure why the superhero was behaving so. But it seems like the standalone Wonder Woman movie, the first female-led superhero movie in quite some time, will fill in the answers.
The movie features Diana not only as a true warrior, but also as guardian of Earth. Stepping back into the Great War, it shows Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman fighting to save humanity in historically dark times. (Maybe we need Wonder Woman now too…) The trailer goes slightly heavy on Chris Pine, who plays American pilot Steve Trevor, but it’s overall a great first look for the franchise.
This trailer comes as slight remedy to the negative air surrounding DC’s Cinematic Universe currently. Even ignoring the bad taste left in many fans’ mouth following Batman V. Superman, production for The Flash has stalled yet again as the movie lost Dope director Rick Famuyiwa over what he described as “creative differences.” The Hollywood Reporter indicates Famuyiwa’s “vision of making a movie with more edge clashed with the studio’s take.” This is now the second director to quit the movie this year.
Hopefully Wonder Woman will serve as corrective for DC and Warner Bros. It will be the first movie of its kind to be directed by a woman, Patty Jenkins. The movie also stars Robin Wright, Danny Huston, and Elena Anaya and will be released June 2, 2017.
