SPOILER WARNING: This Article Contains SPOILERS For Wonder Woman
With Wonder Woman out in theaters, fans now know the origin story of the warrior princess who first appeared on screen, played by Gal Gadot, in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They also now know that Princess Diana’s journey to become Wonder Woman included a tearful farewell with her mother, Queen Hippolyta.

If anyone could convince her to return to the world of man, it would be Wonder Woman.
