Wonder Woman finally made her cinematic debut earlier this year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in Justice League, she'll team up with the DC Extended Universe's other major heroes. Before that, however, we'll be traveling back 100 years for Diana of Themyscira's solo movie to see her first time traveling to the outside world. Only three months after the San Diego Comic-Con preview, Warner Bros has released a new action-packed Wonder Woman trailer to get fans more excited for its release. Check it out!
If you thought this summer's first Wonder Woman trailer was full of exciting moments, this new one has even more to offer. It kicks off with us revising Diana in the present day at the Louvre, as she's finally tracked down the physical copy of the photo she wanted to keep out of Lex Luthor's hands in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. From there, we jump back a century to Themyscira, where Steve Trevor has not only crash-landed, but soldiers have also stormed the island. It looks like that fight between human troops and the Amazons will happen early on, and even though these fierce warriors have engaged in centuries of battle, it remains to be seen how they'll fare against bullets and other projectile weapons from the early 20th century.
From there, we jump into the movie's main setting, World War I, but the conflict isn't quite going the same way as it did in the real world (duh). The main villain looks like he's creating a deadlier weaponized gas to make the Great War even deadlier. With everything going on, it's no wonder that Diana chooses to accompany Steve Trevor back to Europe to help end the war. Of course, she can't just go in sword and lasso swinging...not right away, anyway. She'll need to disguise herself as Steve Trevor's secretary. It's a good thing she's excellent at her job, which includes protecting him from assassins.
While there weren't that many new plot details revealed in the new Wonder Woman trailer, it made up for that with cool, new action moments, from the biplane flying through the explosion to that killer shot of Diana deflecting lightning with her bracelets. That said, I'm a little concerned with how many slow-motion shots will be in this movie. A sprinkling here and there is when slo-mo works best, but too much can be off-putting. Oh, and can I just say that I'm loving Etta Candy so far. It's funny how she both realizes the need for "principles" in this era, but is willing to pull out the fisticuffs when necessary.
Set during World War I, Wonder Woman will tell the tale of Gal Gadot's Diana venturing off Themyscira for the first time to escort Chris Pine's Steve Trevor back to the "man's world" and see what life is like outside her secluded island. While participating in this Great War, she'll also have to battle mythical forces only she is capable of stopping. Wonder Woman's main cast also includes Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta, Robin Wright as Antiope, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner and David Thewlis.
Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, 2017.
