I think there are some pretty unfair expectations awaiting this film when it hits theaters this June, but if the trailers are any indication of the film’s quality, we could finally see the DC Extended Universe we’ve been waiting for. With Gal Gadot reprising the role she revealed in Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman will finally get the long awaited solo film the world has needed and it looks magnificent.
Undeniably gorgeous – both the setting and the star – the action scenes as well as the emotional introductions are all working for me. To get a glimpse at Diana’s origin is something we have yet to see and it appears to be a vital point to the story line that will be set mostly during World War I. Much like Captain America: First Avenger, this will be a film that doesn’t need to really focus so much on being connective tissue as much as it will be a cool origin story through a period piece styling.
I think there is a lot to love with this “origin trailer” whether it be the glimpses of the origin itself or the theme in which the story will be focusing on. It also looks like Diana will finally be able to show off her ability to fly as well as kick some serious ass ass. I have a feeling we aren’t going to see the rumored villain of Ares – thank goodness – which whom David Thewlis was rumored to be portraying.
