We're not sure how much shooting is left on Wonder Woman, but production will probably come to a close in the near future. Today, star Gal Gadot confirmed that she has wrapped on her portion of the solo DC adventure. Her last scenes took place in Italy, with the country standing in for Diana Prince's homeland of Themyscira. Here's what the actress had to say on her official Facebook page.
"Today was my last day shooting the solo Wonder Woman movie! It's been such an amazing, exciting, dreamy, happy and fascinating experience I will cherish it forever. Thank you to everyone who was involved, our amazing cast, crew and phenomenal director."
While there are no reports on how many scenes are left, there is some speculation that principle photography could last for a couple more weeks on Wonder Woman. It is believed that all of Gal Gadot's scene were shot early so that she could move onto Justice League, which is currently shooting in London. Wonder Woman is the third billed lead in the DC superhero ensemble, and it's likely that production schedules were strategically worked out to seamlessly transition the actress from one project to the next.
Wonder Woman began shooting in November 2015. Patty Jenkins is directing this fourth installment in the DC Comics Extended Universe. She is best known for her hit 2003 drama Monster and her work on the AMC series The Killing. The first leg of the Wonder Woman shoot took place in England, marking the first time this iconic DC Comics character will ever headlined a feature film.
Wonder Woman has an impressive ensemble cast that helps flesh out the DCEU. Starring alongside Gal Gadot is Chris Pine, perhaps best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in the new Star Trek movie series that launched in 2009. He stars as Diana Prince's love interest Captain Steve Trevor. Also starring in the movie is Robin Wright, who currently headlines Netflix's hit drama series House of Cards as Claire Underwood. Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis round out the rest of the main supporting cast. The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers. Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto, Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh, and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming.
No plot details have been revealed for Wonder Woman yet. The movie is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, that have appeared in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was first introduced earlier this year in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. The Wonder Woman solo movie arrives June 2, 2017. The character will then be seen just a few months later when Justice League Part 1 is released in November 2017.
