Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman helped set the stage for the highly-anticipated Justice League. And it also helped set up several standalone adventures coming to theaters over the next 5 years. Fans got their first look at Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice, where we learned that she is over 100 years old. We'll get to learn a lot more about Diana Prince next summer when Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, 2017. Today, we have new set photos as principal photography starts to wind down in Italy.
While we don't know exactly how much is left to shoot on Wonder Woman, the studio also recently started production on Justice League: Part 1, which Gal Gadot will surely be needed for. The last leg of the Wonder Woman shoot takes place in Italy, where the production is filming scenes set in the title character's homeland of Themyscira. Over the weekend, an Italian touring company dubbed Informazioni Turistiche shared new photos from this set, showcasing Connie Nielsen in her full Hippolyta costume, riding horseback.
Just a few days ago, Connie Nielsen teased more interesting news, posting a photo of what could be Wonder Woman's tiger sidekick. Unfortunately, Connie Nielsen didn't offer any details about her tiger co-star on her Instagram page. But last April, a report surfaced that former Wonder Woman director Michelle MacLaren couldn't agree with Warner Bros. on several story points, one of which was that she wanted the title character to have a tiger as a best friend. This rumor surfaced just one day after Michelle MacLaren left the project due to creative differences, with Patty Jenkins (Monster) coming aboard to replace her just a few days after that.
The original report about the tiger sidekick and the rest of the studio's creative differences with Michelle MacLaren was never confirmed, but most assumed that, if it were true, we surely wouldn't be seeing a tiger in Patty Jenkins' version of Wonder Woman. Still, we don't know for sure if the tiger shown in Connie Nielsen's photo is in fact Diana Prince's sidekick, or how this powerful animal fits into the story.
Production started on Wonder Woman back in November. Warner Bros. recently moved this exciting solo adventure up by a few weeks, from June 23, 2017 to June 2, 2017. Take a look at the latest photos from the Wonder Woman set, and stay tuned for more details. This is going to be one thrilling ride for Hippolyta!
