Wonder Woman Ends the Reign of Terror in New Wonder Woman Trailer
Mar 13, 2017
The new Wonder Woman trailer dropped during Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards, showing off the DC Universe's greatest heroine as she journeys to save man's world. Wonder Woman is the highly anticipated new film in DC's Extended Universe. It's a prequel of sorts, taking place well before Man of Steel, Batman vs. Superman, and Suicide Squad.
The trailer gives us our first in-depth look at Diana's home of Themyscira and her mother Hippolyta. The Spartan training Wonder Woman endures, the pivotal moment she brings her gauntlets together, and the display of Wonder Woman's equipment all showcase the "Origin" the trailer promotes. It's hard to tell which origin DC has chosen for Wonder Woman, but with her powers exhibited from the gauntlets, we're guessing this iteration of Wonder Woman will follow that she's the daughter of Zeus.
Though the big bad has yet to be revealed for the film, few details have emerged about General Erich Ludendorff, the ambitious WWI general, and Maru who appear to be on the forefront of biological warfare. Steve Trevor says the residents of Themyscira are in more danger than they realize and it's still unclear exactly why. Hopefully we'll get one more trailer before the premiere in June that'll illuminate more of the conflict. As it stands, we're incredibly excited for Wonder Woman!
Wonder Woman releases on June 2, 2017 after Free Comic Book Day and stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Danny Huston (General Erich Ludendorff), Elena Anaya (Maru), and Lucy Davis (Etta Candy). Directed by Patty Jenkins, the film is based on Wonder Woman from DC Entertainment.
