Wonder Woman fever is starting to take over as the anticipated film approaches. That happens to include the Marvel side of the aisle as well.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn is riding high after a successful two weeks in theaters, and he hopes the same is in store for Patty Jenkins' DCEU debut. When asked "do you like Wonder Woman??" on Twitter, Gunn said, "I’m hella excited for @PattyJenks’ Wonder Woman movie if that’s what you mean."
He's not the only one, as according to a recent survey by Fandango Wonder Woman is by far the most anticipated movie of the summer. That's especially impressive considering that films like Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Baywatch, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Cars are all coming out soon as well.
As for Guardians, Gunn has to be happy with its performance so far, as just in three weeks the film has pulled in a worldwide total of over $744 million. Baby Groot should definitely give himself a pat on the back for such an epic performance.
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action-adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and is written by Allan Heinberg, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder. The film stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
