Wonder Woman will be hitting our cinemas in June 2017 and yet we’re already excited. Why are we excited you ask? Well for one Wonder Woman’s solo film has been a long time coming. The fans of D.C. finally get a film for their female heroine and it looks to be amazing. We are also excited because D.C. has released a second trailer showing us more of what we can expect from the movie.
Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman and from the trailer we can see that this will be more of an origin story, this we already know, but it also seems that the film will not just be set in the past but in the present as well.
Does that mean we’ll get cameos from Bruce or other members of the Justice League? We’ll have to wait to find out.
It also seems as if she is telling her story to someone, is that someone us the audience or another character entirely?
Not only will the film be set in World War I, but it’ll also be set in the paradise Amazon island Themyscira. This opens up more for the story line because as you’ve noticed Wonder Woman has not aged since WWI. Those who are familiar with the comics will know why, but those who are not will get to find out more about her and the Amazons.
The trailer was careful not to spoil too much of whom the villain was. It’s obvious that one villain will be Germany as it is World War I. However, looking at the trailer there may be another villain who rises to the surface. Did you notice the female who looked like half her face was solid as if plastic? Yes, she may be more of a problem.
And of course the love interest of Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) has been introduced. It’ll be interesting to see how he’s played in the movie. In the comics he’s a bit of a damsel in distress as Diana is the one who saves him.
All in all this is a film to look forward to whether you are a fan of D.C. comics or not. There will be action, romance and intrigue. I am also anticipating a plot twist at some point. It also looks to be a film that will humorously and seriously tackle the subject of feminism.
But we’ll have to wait a while till we can watch the movie, I guess for now we’ll just watch the trailer again!
