Ever since Wonder Woman made her onscreen debut, in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s been clear she may be the Dark Horse of the DCU film slate. We’ve been treated to a teaser trailer and an Entertainment Weekly exclusive photo roundup, but so much remains a mystery about the 2017 superhero flick. Well, Christmas just came early Wonder Woman fans as Warner Brother’s released another stunning Wonder Woman trailer, and three new posters!
The trailer opens with breathtaking views of Themyscira (or Paradise Island), but that serene view doesn’t stay serene for long as man’s war quickly infiltrates the Amazonian princess’ home. We can’t be too sure what prompts such an invasion (other than Steve Trevor’s crash landing on the shores of Themyscira), but whatever the case, the intruders are met with brute Amazonian force, and it’s chill-inducing to watch.
Amazonian battle aside, this trailer brings to attention Diana’s inevitable naivety and her idealistic views of the world. Despite the Amazon’s inherent appreciation for honorable battle, Diana appears to be new to the horrors of war. There have been nods to Ares being the resident big bad as the growing conflict centers around “the war of all wars” and some sort of biochemical agent. We’re also shown a mysteriously masked villainess who may have a hand in this war as well. But more than anything, viewers see Diana step up to the plate and kick some serious ass on the battlefield, and it is glorious.
Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Robin Wright (Netflix’s “House of Cards”), and Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Wonder Woman hits theatres in June, 2017.
