She stole Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from right under Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill with well-deserved impunity, and, now, Gal Gadot is poised to own the summer that will be in 2017.
The first trailer for the eagerly anticipated, decades-in-the-making first Wonder Woman blockbuster – a production directed by Monster’s Patty Jenkins – debuted earlier today at Comic-Con, and, from the looks of it, it is gonna be a story told from a lense as old as time. At least at first.
Girl meets boy – in this case, a man named Steve Trevor played by Chris Pine.
And then girl turns out to be a wondrous demigoddess raised by fierce women warriors on a remote land no one seems to have encountered before.
All kinds of badassery ensue when she leaves her home to venture on that of men as Diane Prince, and, given that the story will be set in the thick of World War I, this one is majorly vibing as the Captain America: The First Avenger piece of the DC Comicsverse puzzle.
Wonder Woman is scheduled to take theaters next June 2. See you then!
