San Diego Comic Con is right around the corner, and you know that means we’re going to get a new look at a bunch of unreleased Superhero movies. It’s a safe bet to place that Wonder Woman is going to be among these movies that we see, but before then, we’ve received a few new images that give us a fresh look at the film (via Entertainment Weekly).
There are four new images. One of them has Gadot receiving direction from Patty Jenkins, one has her crossing her powerful wrist cuffs ( similar to how she did in BvS), another with her crouching in a forest with Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, and the last is of her drawing her sword. Check them out below!
Her costume looks a lot more vibrant this time around, and her shield is different from the one we’ve seen, so we’re assuming she gets another one somewhere down the line. The film is set about a century before the events of Batman V Superman so it makes sense.
As well as receiving these images, EW also got to sit down with Gal Gadot and ask her how she got prepped to take on the role of Wonder Woman/Diana Prince and what it meant to her:
“It is a big responsibility. We knew we wanted to tell a story that would inspire people: women, men, boys, and girls. And we didn’t want to just show a generic story of a superhero coming of age. We wanted her to be full and whole. This is the first time we are telling this story and I feel like for so many boys, they have great role models to work with. They have Superman and Batman and Spider-Man and the list goes on and on. And they are strong and almighty and they are positive and active and proactive..I feel that I’ve got the opportunity to set a great role model for girls to look up to a strong, active, compassionate, loving, positive woman and I think it’s so important. It’s about time that somebody will do that and I’m very privileged and honored to be the one.”
As well as taking on the role, the film couldn’t have been made unless a director was at the helm. Patty Jenkins (Monster) is the lady in charge, and Gal Gadot seems to think that the fact that a woman directed the Wonder Woman film helped the story, and also helped her a lot:
“I think it’s important. It’s a story about a girl becoming a woman. I think only a woman, who has been a girl, can be able to tell the story in the right way…All my life I’ve been working with male directors which I’ve really enjoyed. And I’m lucky in that I’ve worked with men who have a lot of respect for women. But working with a woman is a different experience. It feels like the communication is different. We talk about emotions. With Patty, it’s a thing now, we communicate with our eyes. She doesn’t need to say a thing. If I’m hurt, she feels the pain. It’s a whole different connection that I have with her. She’s also brilliant, she’s bright, she’s fierce, she’s sharp. She knows exactly what she wants Wonder Woman to be.”
Wonder Woman has a little under a year until it’s theatrical released, but we’ll be expecting some new announcements when Warner Bros. heads to H Hall at Comic Con next week. Once we get some new info, we’ll let you guys know.
Wonder Woman is scheduled to release on June 2, 2017.
