One of the most anticipated films of the year is this summer’s blockbuster release of the new Wonder Woman movie, which stars Gal Gadot in the title role. The film will tell the story of the warrior princess and her adventures as an Amazon hero, a role was first played by Gadot in last year’s hit comic book film Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice where her work was widely praised.
While the Wonder Woman character we’ve come to know over the decades has been fairly fun during her time fighting crime, Gadot has hinted that this film be a darker, grittier version of the heroine. Gadot will also reprise the role later this fall in the Justice League movie, due out in November.
Chris Pine plays Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s love interest, alongside other cast members such as Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston, Ewan Bremner and Lucy Davis. It’s taken quite a while to bring this film to the big screen, the project has been in the works for close to 20 years.
Patty Jenkins directs after Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren left the project in 2015. The release date for the action-packed comic film is June 23rd.
