About 3hrs ago, the first photo known to man from Patty Jenkins upcoming Wonder Woman movie by Warner Bros. and DC shows our first glimpse of Diana’s homeland in a film set to hit this summer June 23, 2017. This comes just after we have seen Wounder Woman steel the show in the new Batman VS Superman that has had ho hum reviews by critics.
Along with a new shot of Gal Gadot as Diana in training, we also get our very first look at some of the supporting Amazonian characters: Queen Hippolyta (Played by Connie Nielsen), General Antiope (Played by Robin Wright) and her lieutenant, Menalippe (Played by Lisa Loven Kongsli).
“This trio of immortals is responsible for both raising and training Diana — the only child on this estrogen heavy isle — but they don’t always agree. Hippolyta, a revolutionary leader, longs to shelter her beloved daughter from the outside world, but Antiope, the Amazon responsible for Diana’s training, wants to prepare her. She is the only child they raised together, says Jenkins, calling from outside London, where she is deep into the film’s production. And their love for her manifests in a different way for each of them.”
Costume designer Lindy Hemming adds: “As a woman I wanted Wonder Woman to be hot as hell, fight bad ass, and look great at the same time. The same way men want Superman to have huge pecs and an impractically big body. No worries though when the fighting gets particularly heavy they’ve got flats to change into.”
“Girl Power will be in full effect.” says director Jenkins.
