Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster, AMC’s The Killing) and starring Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious) in the titular role, Wonder Woman made her big screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but this new film will mark her first time the character has headlined a solo feature – though you’d be hard-pressed to top Lynda Carter’s formidable run as the character on TV.
Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine (Star Trek) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, House of Cards), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).
There’s a lot riding on the success of Wonder Woman, given the less-than-stellar (but surprisingly money-making) reception of BvS and the more recent Suicide Squad. In the case of the latter we know DC can cut an amazing trailer for a mediocre movie… hopefully that’s not the case here.
Wonder Woman is released in cinemas June 2nd 2017.
