“If no one else will defend the world, then I must.”
Welcome to Themyscira. The new trailer for DC’s Wonder Woman has just hit the web, and it’s packed with origins, training, and ferocity. This trailer shows Gal Gadot as the titular superhero becoming a hero among men and gods through years of rigorous training on her secluded island home of Themyscira.
We have a much deeper sense of progression in this most recent trailer, and it looks like we follow Diana Prince’s story from childhood to World War I. The footage shows Diana’s mother Hippolyta, played by Connie Nielsen, introducing her to the sword and shield that she will wield later on. When Diana meets Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, she will travel to London and get involved in World War I, where she will beat up a lot of the Kaiser’s men. We have still yet to see anything of Ares, but he might be showing up in the last trailer before the movie’s release.
One argument that may be put to bed is whether Gal Gadot has what it takes to portray such an iconic character, both visibly and theatrically. Wrangle me up with the lasso of truth because she does! Don’t agree with me? Let me know in the comments section.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Wonder Woman is the third movie in the DC Extended Universe, following 2013’s Man of Steel and last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Wonder Woman will cross paths with Batman and Superman once again this November in Justice League, along side Aquaman, Flash, and Cyborg.
Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2.
