By the gods, everything about Wonder Woman looks amazing. The highly anticipated super heroine solo movie comes out next summer, but Warner Bros. has already kicked the marketing campaign for the DC Comics movie into high gear. An extended TV spot for the Amazon's standalone movie has just hit the web, and it's nothing less than adrenaline pumping. Check it out below to see for yourself.
If we are to believe this trailer, then Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman will be nothing less than a white-knuckle thrill ride. Admittedly the commercial doesn't provide us with much in the way of new footage, but it tightly edits together all of the action from the San Diego Comic-Con trailer into one incredibly exciting preview. Opening on Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) meeting Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) on the shores of Themyscira, the trailer quickly cuts to her service in WWI, showcasing the wide variety of battles she participated in. It's a trailer light on plot details, but heavy on sheer ass kicking.
For a PG-13 superhero flick, we have to admit that Wonder Woman looks like an incredibly visceral action movie. The chaos and carnage depicted as she fights in small villages and sprints across no man's land feels like something out of a hard-R war movie. However, it's important for the movie to sell us on this intense level of carnage because we need to see how good of a fighter Diana is, and we need to witness exactly the sort of violence that causes her to abandon humanity for the better part of a century.
As much as we adore this trailer, it's worth noting that it's incredibly odd for a TV spot to already hit the Internet. Wonder Woman doesn't debut until next summer, but Warner Bros. seems intent on getting the hype train rolling as soon as possible. The official Comic-Con trailer practically broke the Internet last week, and with the upcoming release of Suicide Squad, it looks like the DCEU has seriously begun to gain traction with audiences. WB just needs to be careful that Wonder Woman doesn't overstay its welcome, because we could get seriously tired of hearing about it over the course of the next year if they overexpose the movie.
All in all it looks as though Wonder Woman has come together better than we could have ever expected -- and our hopes were already sky high. The story of the first major female superhero will undoubtedly resonate with audiences, and take the DCEU into unprecedented territory. At this point we have complete faith in Gal Gadot and Patty Jenkins to get this right.
We will keep you up to date regarding the upcoming release of Wonder Woman as more information becomes available. Diana Prince's solo adventure will hit theaters on June 2, 2017. Stay tuned for more details.
