2016 might have just barely arrived, but we’re already looking ahead to the summer of 2017 and the release of Warner Brothers’ epic Wonder Woman movie. Fans got a sneak peek last night during the CW’s DC Films: Dawn of the Justice League special, and let’s just say, we’re READY.
Wonder Woman isn’t just a style icon who happens to be killer for comic book character for Halloween costuming purposes. She’s also an amazingly complex mythological figure with a seriously cool backstory.
“She’s one of the greatest superheroes out there, but people don’t know her origin like they know Superman’s origin or Batman’s origin,” says DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns in the trailer’s commentary. He says that the time has come to shine a light on the DC world’s #girlboss superhero, and we can’t help but agree.
“The best thing about wonder woman is how good and kind and loving she is, and yet none of that negates her power,” says director Patty Jenkins.
The film will star Israeli model-actress Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and, if the epic fight scenes we saw in that teaser were any indication, it’ll definitely keep us on the edge of our seats.
