The newest Wonder Woman trailer was revealed during the Kids’ Choice Awards, showcasing Diana’s journey from Themyscira to London. Even if “She must never know the truth about who she is”, in risk of spoiling any potential plot points I will refrain from speculating what the phrase actually means, instead lets point out at the shock of the other Amazon warriors when Diana creates that massive shockwave before their eyes, or as i’d like to call them — the onscreen representation of those who doubted Gal Gadot’s physique for the part.
Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor, seems to serve as the film’s comedic relief which makes it refreshing as opposed to the overused ‘savior’ trope, because lets face it– Wonder Woman isn’t a maiden in need of defending, she can rock that sword and shield in whatever outfit she damn well pleases.
Lots of butt kicking and World War I action happening that hopefully but not necessarily connects to the rest of the DCEU. I have a lot of hope for Wonder Woman and I’m looking forward to its release later this year.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and Starring Gal Gadot, Wonder Woman releases in theaters everywhere June 2, 2017
