Wonder Woman is a pretty well known superhero character, easily recognizable around the world. And I dare say that most people could probably tell you she comes from an island of amazons to do her superheroing work in the outside world. But how well versed is the general public with the rest of the character’s origins? The new trailer for the upcoming Wonder Woman film, just released on star Gal Gadot’s twitter feed, gives some of the details of young Diana’s upbringing. But it also hints that there is a deeper mystery about her origins that even Wonder Woman herself does not know.
The film has a lot riding on it. While they have made profits, barely, the previous films in Warners’ DC Comics Extended Universe franchise have met with less than enthusiastic response from critics. Will Wonder Woman continue that trend or break it? From what we see here, much of the cinematography is a big step away from the gritty steel blues and grays that mark the look of Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad. Does the film strike out on its own in others ways as well?

Here’s the studio synopsis –
“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.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.
