Empire Magazine has revealed an explosive new look at Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. The new image shows Diana Prince aka. Wonder Woman charging through the trenches towards an army of WW1 soldiers.
“What motivates her is philosophical,” director Patty Jenkins tells Empire. “She isn’t just taking out bad guys or fighting crime. She believes in goodness and love. [She] is fierce and willing to fight, but only to protect a better vision for mankind. Hers is really a coming-of-age story.”
Jenkins then went on to discuss why she wanted to focus on a World War setting for Wonder Woman, “My approach was to focus on telling the story of mechanised war and how that would look to a god visiting our world for the first time, I wanted the audience to understand the horrors that a war on this scale makes possible and how shocking that would be to someone who comes with a strong sense of honour and justice. She doesn’t realise yet just how senselessly dark the world can be.”
“’Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
