Warner Bros. has released an intense new trailer for Wonder Woman.
The two-and-a-half minute teaser features plenty of action and hints at the romantic relationship between Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor. Watch below.
Gadot’s debut as the iconic comic book character in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice was widely praised. Many fans suggested she should ahave been given more screen time.
The actress has previously teased that her standalone Wonder Woman movie will be “pretty dark”. Alongside Chris Pine as love interest Steve Trevor, the film’s cast also includes Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston, Ewan Bremner and former The Office actress Lucy Davis.
The Wonder Woman movie has been in the works for close to two decades, with several stops and starts over the years. At one point, Joss Whedon was attached to direct.
Monster‘s Patty Jenkins is now directing after Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren dropped out in April 2015. The film is set for release on June 23, 2017.
Wonder Woman, a warrior princess of the Amazons, made her DC Comics debut in 1941 and was famously played by Lynda Carter, a former Miss World USA, in a popular US TV series that ran from 1975 to 1979. An unseen pilot for a TV reboot was shot in 2011 but NBC decided not to order a full series.
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman has recently been made an honorary UN ambassador.
