She made her wonderful (pun intended) in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that was only the beginning for Gal Gadot as she portrays Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman, one of the most iconic female heroes in the DC Universe. A solo Wonder Woman, with Patty Jenkins directing, is currently filming and getting close to wrapping production. Thanks to the Daily Mail, we have new set photos featuring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince as she meets Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) for the first time at what is meant to be Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s home world. This is how they also met for the first time in the comic books as Steve got stranded at Themyscira so logn time Wonder Woman fans should be quite excited about this.
While they don’t say where it is taking place exactly, they are shooting at an Italian beach. We also see several soldiers having made their way onto Themyscira as well, which doesn’t sit well with the Amazons as we see a conflict rise. One of the Amazons featured in these photos does resemble the DC Comics character Artemis, a supporting character in the Wonder Woman mythology, but whether or not this is actually her, remains to be seen. So far, no one has been reported to be playing this role in the film. Check out all the images below.
Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis, opens in theaters on June 23, 2017.
