'Wonder Woman' origins trailer has the internet buzzing
Final sneak peek stokes excitement over the Amazonian warrior princess's first solo epic.
If the latest trailer for the "Wonder Woman" solo film doesn't make you want to raise a sword, grab a shield and defend the world from evil, we're not sure what will.
Spanning 2 1/2 minutes, the preview touches upon the origins of the Amazonian demigoddess, played by Israeli rising star Gal Gadot, and masterfully builds upon the other mysteries and epic battles yet to come. In what's a very welcome nod to the Marvel films, this latest adventure in the DC Comics franchise also appears to embrace some levity to counter its embattled early-20th century setting.
Most of all, however, we continue to be blown away by Gadot's character portrayal. All of those countless hours in the gym, coupled with her acting talents and drive to see Wonder Woman succeed as a role model for all genders, has resulted in a masterclass performance for the superhero genre. We're already looking forward to seeing her again later this year in the highly anticipated ensemble film "Justice League."
"I feel very proud that finally this movie is being made, because all of you guys, all men and all boys, always had a figure to look up to," Gadot recently told Collider. "Whether it’s Superman or Batman or Spider-Man, or whatever it is, they always had heroes to look up to and for girls, it’s always the princesses are being saved or being passive and finally Wonder Woman, she’s fearless, she’s proactive, she believes in herself. She believes she can do everything, and that’s a true woman for me."
Naturally, we're not alone in our excitement. Check out a list of tweets below from others online anxiously counting down the days until June 2.
