Christmas must have come early, because in addition to the epic new Suicide Squad trailer, DC has given us a fresh preview of 2017's Wonder Woman. (Then again, maybe they're just trying to make up for that Batman v Superman trailer.)
The new featurette takes us behind the scenes of the movie, with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine talking about the impact of the iconic character, and includes a bunch of brand new footage that's giving me major life right now.
Check it out:
DC's MVP Geoff Johns spoke to Kevin Smith in last night's CW special about the role of Wonder Woman in the DCEU, and the story that will bring her solo movie to life:
"These Amazons were created to protect man's world, but they've since abandoned it. Diana's asking constantly, why don't we go do what we were created to do?"
We'll see Diana Prince first in Batman v Superman, but this is the movie that will establish her as a hero on a par with the Caped Crusader or the Man of Steel.
Let's not forget, this will be the first female superhero movie since Elektra (if you'd managed to forget about Elektra, I envy you), so it's a pretty big deal, and DC needs to get it right. From the looks of the new footage, they have.
We see Wonder Woman wielding her sword on the battlefield in the 1910s, but there's not much modern day stuff, suggesting the shoot so far has mostly focused on the earlier time period. And that's just fine by me.
Even from the little we've seen, Gal Gadot seems to be the very embodiment of this iconic heroine, and DC appears to have gotten it right once again. In fact there's every chance Wonder Woman could be better than Batman v Superman...
Instant bonus points for the fact that it doesn't feature a CGI Doomsday. We'll know either way on June 23, 2017, because that's when Diana's big moment arrives. Don't miss it.
And, just in case you spent today inside a cave, here's that seriously brilliant new Suicide Squad trailer.
