Will Wonder Woman be the film that redefines the DCEU? With what we've received from trailers so far, it very well could be. I have high hopes for the upcoming movie and its depiction of the Amazonian princess, played by Gal Gadot.

Prior to its release, I highly recommend watching the character's first animated solo film, Wonder Woman (2009). It is a work of art and a genuine embodiment of the character. In my opinion, it is one of the DC Animated Universe's best creations. But before we compare the two movies, watch the captivating trailer for below:

Now that you've watched the official trailer, let's take a look at its resemblance to Wonder Woman (2009).

Her True Origin Is Told

Over the years, Diana's origin has frequently been altered. Thankfully, the 2017 film will retell her familiar emergence that fans have loved for decades. In the movie's official Comic-Con trailer, Diana tells Steve Trevor that she was brought to life by Zeus, thus proving that the story will stay true to its roots. Take a look down below at how the animated film sincerely portrayed Wonder Woman's most well-known origin:

Gorgeous Visuals

In Wonder Woman (2017), I am looking forward to the visual excursion we will be taking to Themyscira. As shown in the picture beneath, the animated film beautifully illustrated Diana's secluded world of paradise and peace. Based on the live-action trailer, it looks as if the movie will bring the breathtaking island to life in ways fans could only imagine.

Epic Battles Galore

The Wonder Woman (2017) trailer gave us a spectacular glimpse of action, specifically the duel between soldiers and the Amazonians. But who will the film's main antagonist be? Chances are it could be Ares, the god of war, analogous to Wonder Woman (2009). It was hinted in the trailer that Danny Huston could be playing a live-action version of the character. If so, that would certainly make him the primary villain. Regardless, expect to see intense battle scenes, much like the animated film has given us. Check out the final fight scene from Wonder Woman (2009) below:

An Icon Of Empowerment And Equality

There's a reason why Wonder Woman was named a UN Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Woman and Girls. Since her inception, Diana has been recognized as a symbol of altruism, justice and equality. Also, it is worth mentioning that she is regarded as a feminist icon. She inspires her fans to be strong no matter who they are. Her animated film represented this remarkably, and there's no doubt that Wonder Woman (2017) will strive to do the same. In an interview with We Got This Covered, Gal Gadot discussed the character's message and importance:

“Wonder Woman is different. On this film, we went back to Diana’s backstory — to her history, her coming of age. How did Diana become Wonder Woman? But with this character, what I love about her so much is that her agenda is love. It’s not about fighting, it’s not about who is stronger than whom; it’s not about women versus men. It’s about love, and acceptance of others. She stands for love, justice and compassion.”

The live-action movie, Wonder Woman, will make its way to theaters on June 2, 2017.
