Earlier this week, actress Gal Gadot revealed that she had wrapped production on Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Wonder Woman movie, which has been set for release on June 2, 2017. Production had recently shifted to Italy, where the scenes set in the title character's homeland of Themyscira were filmed. Director Patty Jenkins has now announced that the entire production has wrapped, with the filmmaker offering her thoughts about working with this cast in crew.
The director sent off a number of messages through her Twitter account, where she praised the work of Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, the later of which she calls one of her "favorite humans." The director also shared the traditional photo of the entire cast and crew, with Gal Gadot front and center in her Wonder Woman costume, while revealing that shooting came to an end on a very special birthday. Take a look at what director Patty Jenkins had to say in a series of tweets.
"So happy and excited to have wrapped the first Wonder Woman film!! And one William Marston's birthday, no less! (WW's creator). What an incredible cast and crew. So grateful to them. And going to miss being with Gal Gadot every day. What a shining star of a person. Good, kind, strong and impressive and what a performance! Gal is a Wonder Woman, for real. And Chris Pine is one of the greatest people I've ever met. He blew my mind and became one of my favorite humans. Mindblowing talent and what a special spirit. Gal and my best friend, and partner, beginning to end. I love those guys and the whole cast and crew. Will miss you guys. Can't wait for everyone to see all of your great work. Happy bday to WMM! This cast and crew were truly phenomenal. Can't wait to share their work on the big screen!"
Gal Gadot will move directly from filming the Wonder Woman movie to Justice League: Part 1, which started production at Leavesden Studios in the U.K. last month. Very little is known about the Wonder Woman plot at this time, but the story has been rumored to span over 100 years, following Diana Prince from her homeland of Themyscira to World War I-era London, with the story eventually taking us to present day, which will tie into the Justice League movie. Gal Gadot and Chris Pine lead the cast as Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor, with a supporting cast that includes Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis.
Patty Jenkins directed from a script by Jason Fuchs (Pan), with Warner Bros. recently pushing up the release date by a few weeks, from June 23, 2017 to June 2, 2017. The movie will be going up against Sony's long-awaited action sequel Bad Boys 3 and 20th Century Fox's animated movie Captain Underpants. Now that production has wrapped, the long wait begins for the first trailer, so while we wait, take a look at Patty Jenkins' end of production tweets below.
