EW has a first look at her, sans Superman and Batman, in the standalone movie Warner Bros. and DC have scheduled for next summer. Director Patty Jenkins getting her blockbuster career up and running with an origin tale charting a youthful Princess Diana’s (Gadot) emergence from a warrior race on the hidden isle of Themyscira to become the greatest fighter of them all.
Alongside her in this line-up of Themyscira’s finest warriors are her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), and her aunts, General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiope’s adjutant Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli, recently seen in the terrific Force Majeure). There’s tension in these ranks, however.
“She is the only child they raised together,” says Jenkins of Hippolyta and Antiope. “And their love for her manifests in a different way for each of them.” One wants her sheltered; the other plunged into the maelstrom of combat.
Wonder Woman is set for release in the States on June 23, 2017.
