First look: Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot and Chris Pine

By Marriska Fernandes on January 20, 2016 | 8 Comments

If you’re counting down the days to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release in March, you might enjoy a first look at the demigoddess Wonder Woman in action. Thrusting her sword, flashing her shield and looking good while battling the bad guys, Gal Gadot brings Wonder Woman to life in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

During a CW special for Dawn of the Justice League, DC Comics unleashed footage that teases the backstory and origin of Wonder Woman. We also get a sneak peek at her love interest Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine). Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics, Geoff Johns, who introduced the footage, said: “Wonder Woman’s like one of the greatest superheroes out there, but people don’t know her origins like they know Superman’s origin and Batman’s origin. So, what we want to do in the film is really tell people who she is, where she comes from and why she does what she does. We’ve never seen it on film before.”

While Gal Gadot looks amazing in the new superhero film, fans will first be introduced to her as Wonder Woman a.k.a. Diana Prince in the upcoming release Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 25, 2016.

The Wonder Woman movie is set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017.

    I think she was miscast.

    The reason why it has taken so long for a wonder woman anything to be done is Lynda Cater really was the BEST!!

    This isn’t Wonder Woman but Amazon Woman. I don’t recall Wonder Woman fighting with a sword.

    @Bob – they’re not adapting the TV show; they’re adapting the comic book.
    Where she fight with a sword. And also can flight.

    … Wondering if they’ll allow her to flight here.

    But, in both incarnation, she was an Amazon, so…

    Thoughts I got from those scenes:

    “…The cinematographer seriously went ALL IN with that blue filter.”
    “Man, does it look depressing.”
    “Gal’s still all wrong for that role… but she better gives a bonus to her agents!”
    “Don’t know who they got lined up for comic relief here, but whoever it is better be funny!”

    So… DC/WB probably should have kept those scenes to themselves.

    All the commenters (OK, most) in this thread seem to be fast-food Marvel digesters who want another “fun” movie like Ant-Man… sorry, guys: DC is taking the adult approach to comic books and they’re doing it RIGHT. They are making films, so if you want to watch superhero movies with lots of funny one-liners, go watch The Avengers.

    What happened to the colour? Can you honestly watch a film with a green filter over the lens? Why not make the film black and white? It would look better.
