Gal Gadot gave Wonder Woman fans a fantastic present earlier today, when the star of the hotly anticipated superhero film debuted a new, vibrant poster over Twitter. Check out the stunning, full image below:https://twitter.com/GalGadot/status/756520524935602176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw
The image, along with the tagline, were widely praised by fans and critics alike. The new tagline, "Power. Grace. Wisdom. Wonder" and the bright and vibrant colours of the poster itself have set it apart from this year's disappointing, and dark, Batman v. Superman. Gadot's performance as Wonder Woman was hailed by many critics as one of the best parts of Batman v. Superman. That being said, it's nice to see the new poster move in a slightly different, perhaps brighter, direction that the film that saw her debut.
Wonder Woman is an origin story, showing audiences how the princess warrior of an island paradise first came into contact with the rest of the world. She encounters American pilot Steve Trevor, and becomes convinced that she can help solve the conflict engulfing the world. While most Wonder Woman origin stories depict this conflict as World War II (as is in the comics), this movie shifts the war back, to World War I. This interesting take on the character may explain why Diana stayed hidden for so many years.
The impressive cast boasts Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Connie Nielson,David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Said Tagmaoui. Patty Jenkins will direct the film from comic scribes Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg. It will be released in theatres everywhere on June 2, 2017.
In the meantime, if you need your Wonder Woman fix, check out the new ongoing series written by Greg Rucka, with art by Nicola Scott and Liam Sharp. The book is released twice a month, with one storyline diving into Diana's past, and the other depicting her dangerous present.
