We’re now less than two weeks away from Zack Snyder’s Justice League being released to the masses, which naturally means that the final marketing wave to promote the Snyder Cut is underway. Over the last few days, we’ve been treated to new footage from the upcoming DC Extended Universe event of Batman, Superman, Aquaman and The Flash. With today marking International Women’s Day, it’s only appropriate that Wonder Woman is the next hero to get her own promo.
It was a little over two months ago that we reunited with Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 1984, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League is taking us back to the present day to show a different account of how Wonder Woman joined forces with her fellow superheroes to protect the world from Steppenwolf. Take a look at the wondrous new footage of her in action (pun fully intended) below:
The first few seconds of this Wonder Woman-centric promo for Zack Snyder’s Justice League starts off with Diana with a torch in hand, and while this particular video doesn’t reveal what she’s gazing at, we know from footage released in June 2020 that it’s a mural of Darkseid. The promo then cuts to Diana standing near an ancient Greek temple with an arrow in hand. In case need a refresher on Justice League’s theatrical cut, Diana’s mother, Hipployta, warned her daughter that Steppenwolf had arrived on Earth by shooting an arrow to light a torch inside the Shrine of the Amazons. This same warning system will in place for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Of course, just like the other recently-released Snyder Cut promos, Wonder Woman’s preview includes audio snippets from both Diana and other characters, including Hippolyta, Batman and Aquaman. The video then wraps up with Wonder Woman clashing with the redesigned Steppenwolf, and while I won’t provide spoilers for those who haven’t been following the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement over the years, let’s just say that their climactic conflict unfolds differently than what went down in the theatrical version of Justice League.
With the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League in both theaters and on HBO Max next week (feel free to use this link to sign up for the streaming service), Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will have appeared the most times of any DCEU superhero, having previously shown up in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, the theatrically-released Justice League and Wonder Woman 1984. Granted, she’ll go back to being tied with Ben Affleck’s Batman once The Flash comes out, and an argument could be made that the DCEU’s Superman will also soon have five appearances under his belt if you count his Shazam! cameo (although Henry Cavill didn’t play him in that scene). Nevertheless, with both Wonder Woman 3 and an Amazons spinoff on the way, we’re far from done exploring Wonder Woman’s corner of the DCEU.
Now that Wonder Woman’s covered, that leaves Ray Fisher’s Cyborg as the final Justice Leaguer to get his own promo ahead of Zack Snyder’s Justice League arriving on March 18.
