Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
The character of Wonder Woman first appeared in DC’s All-Star Comics #8, published in 1941. More than seven decades later, she is one of the company’s most popular and recognizable characters, considered by fans to be one of the Trinity (along with Batman and Superman). Wonder Woman has appeared in several forms of media since her debut, including video games, animated series, and live-action. Lynda Carter famously portrayed Diana in a television series that aired in the 1970s. Warner Bros. had spent years trying to get a feature film version off the ground, before Gadot co-starred in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Wonder Woman will return in the Justice League movie to be released in November 2017. It is unknown at this point if she will receive a solo sequel or not.
