Warner Bros. Pictures’ Comic-Con panel included the first Wonder Woman trailer for the first-ever film featuring the DC Comics heroine front and center. Monster filmmaker Patty Jenkins directed the movie, which stars Gal Gadot as the Amazon princess who tries to conquer a world war, which is first revealed to her by Chris Pines’ military officer after he crash-lands on her sheltered home island.
The trailer reveals Wonder Woman’s lasso and shield in action, with a little humor thrown in for good measure. A twist on the Wonder Woman theme song plays during the trailer’s end. It’s also nice to see some color in her costume (more evident in the movie’s new poster), which was darker than dark for her appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman.
And, sure, the feminist bits are a bit on the nose with the secretary/slavery gag in the new clip, but it’s refreshing to hear a woman playing a pop culture icon tell a dude, “What I do is not up to you.”
