New Wonder Woman Footage Arrives, Trailer #2 Coming Tomorrow
It's been months since the first trailer for Wonder Woman dropped at Comic-Con, and fans have been awaiting new footage ever since. Warner Bros. has released a brief preview of the second trailer, which is only 15 seconds long, but should be enough to hold fans until the full trailer debuts tomorrow. If this preview is any indication, the new trailer should certainly be action-packed.
This footage does come a few weeks after an international trailer surfaced, and after this iconic character became an official United Nations ambassador. Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot was on hand at the United Nations ceremony in New York, alongside director Patty Jenkins and the original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter. In conjunction with Wonder Woman's 75th Anniversary, the U.N. named Wonder Woman an Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls by the United Nations. She will be tasked with raising awareness about Goal 5 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which seeks to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030. This brief preview debuted on Twitter earlier today.
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.
Gal Gadot will be joined in this superhero adventure by Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy and Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and Elena Anaya in unspecified roles. Production wrapped on Wonder Woman back in May, giving the filmmakers two months to put the footage together for the first trailer that debuted at Comic-Con.
Back in August, director Patty Jenkins responded to reports that this Wonder Woman movie is a "mess," which originated from an open letter written by a person named "Gracie Law," who claimed to be a Warner Bros. employee. The director fired back at the report with a statement of her own, claiming the open letter was nothing but "made-up bs" and that someone was trying to spread some "serious misinfo." Check out this latest Wonder Woman footage as we await this highly-anticipated superhero adventure, hitting theaters June 2, 2017.
