In the most recent [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) trailer Gal Gadot 's Wonder Woman famous Bracelets of Submission displayed quite the spark. Well it was more than just a spark it was more like a boom. And while we are used to Wonder Woman displaying her skills with her bracelets this display caught most off guard.
Dawn of Justice: Wonder Woman
Quite a display of power wouldn't you say? Absolutely! Linda Carter take that!!!
Wonder Woman vs Machine Gun
While Wonder Woman's bracelets are most famously used for blocking bullets it seems that her bracelet will display much more than the ability to deflect. It was confirmed quite sometime ago that this version of Wonder Woman will pull from the new 52 comic run of the character.
Wonder Woman Daughter of Zeus
Since it is confirmed that the new 52 Wonder Woman is being used as source material as a foundation for the character I think it is important for people to know a little history about her bracelets in the new 52. Yes she still had the ability to block objects that are fired at her.
But it seems that the bracelets served as a hindrance to Wonder Woman's true power in the new 52, Ironically the hindrance was because she had the bracelets on.
Typically. when a woman takes off her ear rings you know there is going to be a serious fight but not in the case of Diana. As seen above when Wonder Woman removes her bracelets she actually powers up. In the new 52 Wonder Woman is obviously a demi-god daughter of Zeus as well as half Amazon daughter of Queen Hippolyta.
Apparently, the combination of Greek god and Amazon are so powerful that Wonder Woman could not control her power without assistance and that assistance came in the form of the Bracelets of Submission. While Wonder Woman has on these bracelets her unique powers are kept at bay to keep her from inadvertently hurting those around her. But if she is fighting a god and needs to show who's boss then she will take them off and her true power is revealed.
Wonder Woman has also taken off the bracelets to take on the likes of a suped up Superman.
It will be curious to see if Zack Snyder and crew will pull this power from the new 52. With Wonder Woman due to start filming soon in London we should start to find out more about the character and her abilities. But I am curious to what you think. Would you like to see Wonder Woman this powerful in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Is the new 52 version of the Bracelets of Submission something you want to see in the new DC Extended Universe?
