Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.

Reasons To Be Optimistic About ‘Wonder Woman’

There’s a fair amount riding on Wonder Woman, DC’s summer blockbuster, for more reasons than just being the first major female superhero movie made. It follows up two divisive entries in the universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. While successful, the performances of both at the box office and with critics merited re-evaluation by the filmmakers in the form of corporate restructuring and written mea culpas.

Despite these stumbles, there’s many reasons to be optimistic about Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was well-received as Diana Prince in Batman v Superman, it’s set in the past, focusing on one character after two ensemble pictures, and both Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns add directorial and comic credibility, respectively. Plus, it’s no small thing that DC Films will beat Marvel Studios to the first female superhero movie, despite the latter having made over a dozen movies to former’s four. It’s important milestone for representation in pop culture.
