Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins was on hand tonight along with the film's male lead, Chris Pine, to discuss the upcoming DC Comics adaptation and share some footage from the film at CinemaCon.
ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis was there, and here's how he describes the footage Jenkins shared with the crowd:
Themyscira is seen. Wonder Woman watches Trevor’s plane crash and meets him on the beach. She is trained, intensely. Eventually, she blows Hippolyta away.
“I am willing to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves,” Diana says. She is sailing across the ocean now, only with Steve Trevor. She questions how long until they reach the war. She wants to go where the fighting is the most intense. She wants to find Ares. Steve questions her search. She promises that only she can defeat him with her sword and when she does the war will stop. “This war, it’s a great big mess, and there’s not a whole lot we can do about that,” Steve says. “I’m the one who can!” Diana insists, hoping to make the world better.
Steve sets up a cot for her and elects to let her sleep alone because he does not sleep with women outside of the confines of marriage. She doesn’t know what marriage is so he explains it, saying that it doesn’t always work out. She questions it again and eventually he gets to a point saying, “Fine, Ill sleep with you!” He cozies up beside her. She is wearing the gauntlets on her arms. Neither of them sleep. “Where I come from, I’m not considered average,” he says. “To be a spy, you have to show a certain amount of vigor.” She says she had no father and has never met a man before. “My mother sculpted me from clay and I was brought to life by Zeus.” They say goodnight and go to sleep.
When she awakes, it’s to the sound of a fog horn near a dock underneath London’s bridges. The set is brilliantly made to look like the early 20th Century. “Welcome to jolly ole London,” he said She calls it “hideous.” Later, the two are well dressed walking through the streets. He is suspect of people watching them. They hide in an alley and she questions it. A gun emerges from a corner and is pointed at Captain Trevor. They want Doctor Martin’s notebook. He headbutts one and is shot at by the other. Diana stops the bullet with he armored wrists. One by one, she blocks bullets and takes the men out until the last one is out of ammo and Steve knocks him out. One man tries to run but is stopped by a friend with a sword and tangled in the lasso,before being pulled back to them.
Later, on a battlefield, Wonder Woman rushes into battle,e now in full costume. She leaps from wall to wall and into a second story building. Her theme song roars as she dispatches men with he sword, fists, and kicks. Men fly from the windows and Steve and crew run by. Wonder Woman dodges swords, slides across the floor, and focus in order to take the men out in unbelievable fashion, flipping through air, and taking the last man out through a window, lead by her knee, and emerging with him herself, landing on a rooftop to run with Steve. A sizzle reel finishes the footage.
