Just in time for the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice , the first image from the Justice League member Wonder Woman in her own film starring no other than Gal Gadot has been released.
The image (courtesy of EW) marks the first look Warner Bros has afforded at any of the film’s Amazon characters outside of Wonder Woman herself, revealing that while the film preserves touches of the DC Universe Amazons’ traditional grounding in the Greek myth on which they’re based, a broader fantasy/action aesthetic has been adopted as well. The armor and weapon designs in particular bear a strong resemblance to those seen in the Thor movies, but also the prevailing visual-style of many modern video games and comics as well. Exlains producer Charles Roven:
“Themyscira is influenced by the Greek but it’s clearly more then that. It’s a place that has the ‘you’ve never been to’ kind of feel. But once you’re there you’re not so sure you really want to leave so fast.”
This image is also the first official look at Connie Neilsen as Hippolyta, Wonder Woman’s mother and Queen of the Amazons, Robin Wright as General Antiope and Lisa Loven Kongsli as Lieutenant Menalippe, both in charge of her training.
“Wonder Woman” is set to open in cinemas June 2017 from Warner Bros. Pictures directed by Patty Jenkins (“Monster”).
