Warner Bros Pictures showed off footage of the 2017 Wonder Woman movie during The CW’s Dawn of the Justice League special which aired on January 19, 2016. The footage of Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in action was brief and came with an explanation by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns as to what fans of the DC Comics character can expect from this theatrical film. Geoff Johns says we’ll learn her backstory, where she came from, how she was raised, and why she’s such a fearsome fighter. “She’s an Amazon warrior. She’s the best fighter in the DC universe. She has strength and speed, and she’s been training her whole life for war,” said Johns.
Director Patty Jenkins added, “The greatest thing about Wonder Woman is how good and kind and loving she is, yet none of that negates any of her power.”
In addition to Gadot, the Wonder Woman cast includes Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, and Lucy Davis. Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 23, 2017, however before her stand-alone feature film Wonder Woman will appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
