Wonder Woman is gearing up for an April 2017 release, and EW has just unvieled a brand new photo from the upcoming movie.
Gal Gadot, who portrays Wonder Woman in the film, is seen stealing her famed "godkiller" sword from the Themyscira armory.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Wonder Woman is going against everything she knows to take the weapon.
"There is a point in any good origin story where the hero has to make the decision to step out on her own, forge her own path, and fight for what’s right. For Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), her moment comes when she disobeys her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen); breaks into the heavily guarded armory on her idyllic all-female island of Themyscira; and — as seen in the exclusive image above — steals the Amazon’s mythical sword, the “god killer,” before heading to Europe to help save humanity."
Wonder Woman is known for carrying her famous sword, but not as much as as her famed "Lasso of Truth". The character is seen wielding both weapons in the first trailer from the film.
The Wonder Woman film is setting up to be a milestone for superhero movies, as it's the first major bloackbuster with a female lead. Suicide Squad paved the way with Harley Quinn at the forefront, but Wonder Woman is solely Gal Gadot's spotlight.0comments
