Having been in existence in the DC world for the best part of three quarters of a century, Gal Gadot will be bringing the infamous character Wonder Woman to life on the big screen. Ahead of the June 2 release date for the blockbuster, fans are now able to get a closer look at what the actress will bring to the table courtesy of a few new images off the set.
There have been conflicting reports about the merits of the movie judging by the reactions to the early screenings. Some have gone as far to argue that it is as disjointed as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While others closer to Warner Brothers are confident of it's success to dismiss those calls out of hand. The proof will be in the pudding, as the clock winds down to the premiere in a matter of weeks.
Realist Steve Is All About Getting The Job Done
Appearing on the red carpet at CinemaCon this week as he sported a completely bald figure, actor Chris Pine discussed his role as Steve Trevor in the DC installment. If you're wandering what the Star Trek star is preparing for without the hair though, don't worry. Because he remarked that it was just a case of boredom getting the better of him as he struggled through the flu.
"I never read the comic book," admitted Pine as he was quizzed about his preparation for the part of Trevor. "I read the script and took the cue from my director (Patty Jenkins) and that's how I got about all of these (movies)."
So how does Trevor fit into the DC landscape alongside the great heroine?
"Steve is a realist," he replied. "He's seen the war. He's a man that knows secrets. He's a spy. But really, my job is, I had to fall in love with Gal Gadot, make some jokes, jump over some stuff, breathe heavily."
Diana Takes The Call To Save Civilization
Director Patty Jenkins supported those from Warner Brothers who wanted to cast aspersions on the title. With many eager to see how a female filmmaker integrates into a heavily male dominated genre to date. As the synopsis reveals, the role of Diana is as true to a superhero as anywhere, parting ways with her people to save a world on the brink of collapse.
"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."
