Oh, "Wonder Woman," please, please PLEASE be as good as you look.
The chills are non-stop in the new "Wonder Woman" trailer, but there's a dark edge. We first met Gal Gadot's modern Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in "Batman v Superman," when she was wiser and more cynical about humanity. The new trailer starts with that Diana, now working at the Louvre, and has her reminisce about the World War I photo from her past, which is explored in the 2017 origin story.
"I used to want to save the world," Diana says in a voice-over. "This beautiful place. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness within. I learned this the hard way, a long, long time ago."
That basically tells us that things don't have a happy ending, and that somewhere along the way Diana loses her faith, and only recovers it many years later in time for "BvS" and -- also next year -- "Justice League."
Still, it's easy to get distracted from the dark undertone with those gorgeous battle shots, and the light touches of humor.
Watch the trailer:
If this one disappoints... No, we won't even jinx it. The "Wonder Woman" is out June 2, 2017. She'll be back for "Justice League" on November 17, 2017.
