If you didn’t get enough Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you’re in luck. The first trailer of Gadot’s Wonder Woman was released at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, and it’s everything that you’d imagine and want in a Wonder Woman flick.
Staying true to its origin, Wonder Woman doesn’t shy away from its female-empowering message. In addition to being directed by female director Patty Jenkins, the movie is sure to have plenty of its female fans cheering aloud in theaters everywhere with its sure-fire quips.
On at least two occasions in the trailer, Gadot shows co-star Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor, that she’s no ordinary woman in the early 20th century. At 1:55, Gadot tells a stunned Pine, “What I do is not up to you,” after Pine’s character brazenly tells Wonder Woman, “I can’t let you do this.” Then, following the title flash, Gadot as Diana Prince akins being a secretary to being a slave in a conversation with Trevor’s secretary.
Prince’s cinematic story is established in a period long before Bruce Wayne is born and before Kal-El arrives on Earth. Unlike her original comic-book issues where she appears in World War II, Gadot’s character will arrive on Earth in the midst of the first world war.
The first Wonder Woman trailer also features teasers to several action sequences with the infamous Lasso of Truth integrated, as well. Luckily, the trailer doesn’t reveal too much about the story. Let’s hope it stays that way. As a fan, I would have liked to have been surprised to see Doomsday in a Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.
Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2017.
