If you’re one of those people who have been itching for a new Wonder Woman footage, then we have exactly the right remedy for you.
Following the release of three assorted sneak peeks yesterday, Warner Bros. and DC Comics have finally dropped the third and final trailer for one of the most awaited comic book films of the year, and it is arguably the best one yet.
The new footage chronicles the life of Diana Prince’s (Gal Gadot) early days in the guarded island of Themyscira where she is constantly trained by her kick-ass aunt Antiope (Robin Wright) under the order of her mother Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen). Her skills are then put to a test when American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes into the island and tells her of the massive conflict happening outside her world. Convinced she can put an end to all the hostility, she leaves her home and fights alongside men in a “war to end all wars.”
This particular storyline, which is set during the horrors of World War I, will naturally serve as the meat of the whole Wonder Woman film. However, sources close to production have discovered some additional plot points of the movie, including how it’ll work its way and connect to the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
See the action-packed trailer below.
We’ve said this before from the previous trailers and we’ll say it again: Patty Jenkins appears to have done a REALLY bang-up job in bringing the superhero’s backstory to life. The film just continues to make a terrific impression with each and every trailer that it drops. And this final footage, which focuses more on the film’s solid narrative, goes a long way in getting us on board with the movie, as it looks like this could really be DC’s first big win. Please let this movie be as good as it looks.
Jenkins directs the DC hero’s standalone film from a script penned by Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg, and a story written by Heinberg and Zack Snyder. The feature also stars Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui.
Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2.
