During the Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the first trailer for 2017’s Wonder Woman, the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe and first female-led one, was unveiled to those in attendance at Hall H. Shortly after, the studio uploaded the trailer to their YouTube channel, and it is now available online for the rest of us to enjoy. See the footage below:
Director Patty Jenkins invited stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta) and Chris Pine (Steve Trevor) on stage, and, after talking about the film for a few minutes, introduced the world premiere teaser to the crowd. Audience members had an overwhelmingly positive response to the footage.
The trailer seems to indicate that Wonder Woman will be just as stylish and visually appealing as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but unlike those movies have a lighter tone and maybe even a bit more humor. For example, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Pine and Gadot share a great comedic moment towards the end of the trailer that may be funnier than just about any exchange in the DCEU’s previous offerings.
Otherwise, the footage is action-packed, fun and unique, in that it teases a new direction for the DCEU and comic book movies in general. The World War I-era setting seems like a great backdrop for the events of the movie, and, needless to say, Gadot looks to be doing a fine job as the titular superheroine once again.
Additionally, in case you missed it, an official teaser poster for Wonder Woman was released yesterday, and it can be seen here:
DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and Grey’s Anatomy writer Allan Heinberg penned the screenplay for the film, which also stars Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis and Elena Anaya. Wonder Woman will soar into theaters on June 2, 2017.
