The latest clip for the forthcoming DC Extended Universe feature film production that is Wonder Woman depicts the Amazonian warrior princess becoming a bit of a sore thumb in early twentieth century London while bearing her iconic sword and shield. Directed by celebrated filmmaker Patty Jenkins, and starring Gal Gadot in her first return to the eponymous role since her debut as Diana Prince in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice from early last year, things are beginning to really heat up ahead of the film’s theatrical debut this coming Friday.
After facing something of an uphill battle in terms of getting a feature franchise based on the iconic DC Comics superhero up and going – most notably including a Joss Whedon script that never made it to production – a feature length adaptation of Wonder Woman is finally making its way to the big screen. With early screening reactions indicating good will for the production ahead of its release, the latest clip sees Gadot teasing her globetrotting adventures soon to come.
Courtesy of IGN, potential viewers of Wonder Woman can catch their first look at Gadot as she makes her initial foray into the teeming metropolitan streets of early twentieth century London in the midst of World War I. Aided by American military pilot Steve Trevor – as played by Chris Pine – the latest clip explores some of the more lighthearted moments that will serve to offset the rest of the film’s previously intimated action movie set pieces.
By the looks of things from this latest clip, Jenkins knows when to have a little fun with the classic comic book character, and with any luck the rest of Wonder Woman will be sprinkled with small moments of likeminded playfulness. Aided by Pine – in addition to supporting actress Lucy Davis as Steve Trevor’s assistant Etta Candy – Gadot definitely has the poised determination to pull off the role with a dignity offset by certain idiosyncrasies dictated by the character’s personal history and mythology.
Soon to be followed by Justice League later this November, Jenkins and Gadot have a lot to live up to with the release of Wonder Woman. That being said, everything released thus far paints a thrilling and exciting picture of what appears to be a thoroughly cinematic blockbuster event that fans of the superhero genre won’t want to miss out on seeing for themselves.
