Two new Wonder Woman TV spots are here and the first 30-second ad gives us a look at more of the action, more of Diana (Gal Gadot) and Steve’s (Chris Pine) relationship, and shows how Diana gets her last name: Prince.
The second, released by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on Twitter, takes on a more serious tone and shows Diana’s determination to fight for those who can’t and to stand in the face on injustice.
The first spot, titled “Together,” highlights Steve’s difficulty explaining Diana to people, as he ultimately opts for an awkward “She and I are working together” before interrupting Diana as she’s declaring her royal lineage to declare that her name is Diana Prince.
In addition to the high levels of awkward, Steve’s stumbling is interwoven with a series of high-octane action shots as Wonder Woman kicks ass and takes names. Maybe the only thing missing in this TV spot is the awesome Wonder Woman electric cello theme. You can see the new TV spot below.
The spot released by Jenkins shows Diana taking on danger head-on, declaring the we’ll “soon find out” what she is and what she’s made of. You can see that new spot below.

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.
