First footage from Wonder Woman debuted at Comic-Con on Saturday, providing fans with a sneak peek at Diana Prince in action.
The trailer, which debuted inside Hall H and was released soon after by Warner Bros., opens with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) washing up on shore and encountering Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot). “You’re a man?” she asks. “Yeah, do I not look like one?” The teaser, which is heavy on action, focuses on the differences between Themyscira and the rest of the world. “I had no father,” she says to Trevor when he asks if she had ever met a man before. “I was brought to life by Zeus.” Replies the confused Trevor: “Well, that’s neat.”
The Wonder Woman first look closes with Prince meeting Trevor’s secretary. “What is a secretary?” she asks. “I go where he tells me to go and I do what he tells me to do,” the woman responds. “Well where I’m from, that’s called slavery,” Prince says as a flustered Trevor tries to move everyone along to somewhere else.
Set for release on June 2, 2017, the standalone feature expands on Wonder Woman, who was first introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“I feel like Diana is really accessible. It’s very easy to relate to her. She has the heart of a human so she can be emotional, she’s curious, she’s compassionate, she loves people. And then she has the powers of a goddess,” Gadot explained to EW about the character in a recent interview. “She’s all for good, she fights for good, she believes in great. I want to be her. And in Wonder Woman, she has this naiveté in her. It isn’t stupid, it’s magical. I would want to be naïve like that again.”
The film is directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), and Gadot said having a woman behind the camera for the project was key. “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,” she said.
