Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have launched a new trailer for "Wonder Woman" that they hope will prove their mission for superhero cinematic supremacy; which is something they take very seriously.
DC Comics' bookcase has some of the world's most iconic superheroes, but WB/DC's journey to parallel Marvel Studios' hit-making movie machine has been around to a less than smooth sailing with "Man of Steel," "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Suicide Squad."
Director Patty Jenkin's "Wonder Woman," starring Gal Gadot who plays Princess Diana of Themyscira, would most likely become the first movie from WB/DC in the post-Christopher Nolan era to make money and receive conventional critical praise.
'Wonder Woman' Trailer Shows DC Comics Is Still In The Superhero-Movie Fight
In the short film debut, we see Chris Pine's "Steve Trevor" arrive on Paradise Island with a presage about the "war to end all wars" (World War 1). Princess Diana declines to stand by and watch man's world demolish itself and joins Trevor to fight the battle. That leads to a Clark Kent-throwback scene of a monocle Diana protecting Steve Trevor from numerous bullets flying his way. There's also a lot of swordplay, some appearances by the lasso of truth and, once more, that catchy guitar-shaped theme music that introduced Gadot's Wonder Woman in "Batman v Superman" plays at trailer's end.

There's no doubt about a lot is riding on "Wonder Woman" for WB/DC. The franchise depicts the last attempt that the companies must spin positive buzz from a cinema release based on one of their solo heroes before next November's Avengers-like team-up, "Justice League." (Gadot will also star in "League" alongside Ben Affleck's Batman, leading a team of heroes against an unknown threat.)
I wonder if all cast of "Justice League" will be assembled in the film?Wonder Woman will be released in cinemas on June 2, 2017.
