Coming out on June 2, the movie will unveil the backstory of Diana, princess of the Amazons (played by Gal Gadot), as she went on to become the famous Wonder Woman.
Set in the early 20th century, the plot will evolve around the greek warrior’s encounter with American military pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who was washed ashore the island of Themyscira. After learning from him about the conflict in the outside world (here, World War I), Diana will leave her homeland to engage in a fight to end all wars, and in the meantime discover her full powers and true destiny.
This new adventure based on a comic book character is directed by Patty Jenkins, which makes her the first woman to direct a superhero film with a female protagonist, and co-produced by husband and wife Deborah and Zack Snyder. It will be released in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D.
