Her name is Diana, Princess of Themyscira. Eh, just call her Diana Prince. Or better yet, "Wonder Woman."
Two new TV spots are promoting the upcoming DC Comics superhero flick. Most of the footage has already been seen in the trailers, but the first promo does have the briefest glimpse of an epic duel between Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Ares. From off camera, he slashes at her with a sword — which she stops with her magical bracelets (around the 11 second mark):
Yeah, not much to see, but perhaps Warner Bros. will release more footage soon introducing Ares (David Thewlis in motion capture).
The second promo is a bit more light-hearted, as Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) awkwardly tries to introduce this otherworldly Amazon in 1940s London. Her name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue! It's kind of a brilliant way of explaining how Diana gets her last name.
"Wonder Woman" opens in theaters June 2.
Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that's raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny. Read More
