TRAILER: New ‘Wonder Woman’ Trailer Shows Diana Prince’s Origins

As a child, Diana Prince was told she was not fierce enough to wield the Sword of Athena.


The latest Wonder Woman trailer introduces the origins of Diana Prince. From the time she was a child, she was tested and told she wasn’t good enough. It appears there is something special about this particular Amazonian, though.

Like previous Wonder Woman trailers, this one introduces a sense of overcoming. As a child, Prince is told she is not fierce enough to wield the Sword of Athena. Previous Wonder Woman trailers haven’t been afraid to tackle underdog issues, either.

Set sometime during the Great War, Wonder Woman challenges Gal Gadot’s character battle both super villains and sexism. A July 2016 trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con highlighted just how female-empowering Wonder Woman will be.

Altogether, Wonder Woman has so far done a good job of not revealing too much about the final cut of the movie. The film’s latest trailer only shows brief footage of Prince as a child and adolescent while it also recycles footage from previous trailers.

Chris Pine, as Steve Trevor, makes an appearance in this trailer as well, revealing no new features to the cheeky, fast-talking American. Danny Huston, as General Erich Ludendorff, also makes an appearance as the antagonist who presumably asks Wonder Woman, “What are you?”

Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, is set to release in theaters on June 2.
