“Wonder Woman” To Explore War’s Horrors

The first solo female superhero movie in over a decade arrives next year with Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman”. Gal Gadot takes on the role of the Amazonian hero in both this and “Justice League” later in the year.

Today, Empire Online has posted a new still from the project which you can see below. They also spoke with Jenkins who talked about why the WWI setting was so important to the movie:

“My approach was to focus on telling the story of mechanized war and how that would look to a god visiting our world for the first time. I wanted the audience to understand the horrors that a war on this scale makes possible and how shocking that would be to someone who comes with a strong sense of honour and justice. She doesn’t realize yet just how senselessly dark the world can be.”

“Wonder Woman” opens in cinemas on June 2nd 2017.
