“Be careful of mankind, Diana. They do not deserve you.” – Queen Hippolyta
At last night’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment used the event to premiere the final trailer of the upcoming epic action-adventure Wonder Woman.
Set to the song “Warriors” by Imagine Dragons, this final look which director Patty Jenkins tweeted last night as “#WonderWoman – Rise of the Warrior” is our best look at Gal Gadot as the Amazonian princess in the most action seen in any previous trailer.. Not only do we catch glimpses of Diana Prince’s backstory and rise to ascension as the warrior, we also get a better look at the film’s antagonist, Maru/Doctor Poison (portrayed by Elena Anaya). A recurring enemy for Wonder Woman in the comics, Princess Maru became Doctor Poison in 1942 and was the head of a Nazi group hellbent on posioning the US Army’s water supply with a chemical called Reverso, which would override the infected person’s mind to force them to do the exact opposite of what they wanted. Good chance we’ll see at least some of this villain’s origin revealed in the film.
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.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, princess of Themyscira, and Chris Pine as fighter pilot Steve Trevor. Also appearing in the film are Robin Wright as General Antiope, David Thewlis as Sir Patrick, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
Wonder Woman arrives in theaters June 2, 2017.
