As San Diego Comic Con week approaches fast, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are prepping fans up for some major announcements for their upcoming properties - which includes next year's DC Films' installment in "Wonder Woman" - the long awaited superhero film that spotlights the Amazon Princess that is Diana of Themyscira!
Via Comic Book.com and Business Wire, here is the official press release and synopsis released for the movie:
“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.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston. The film is produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Rebecca Roven, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, “Wonder Woman.” The film is scheduled for release on June 2, 2017, and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company."
And there you have it... All we need is the first trailer for the film, and it's probably sure to arrive on SDCC 2016 next week! Plus the fact the movie is co-written by DC Comics' own Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is sure to place confidence in fans, and couldn't be a better announcement for Wondy during her 75th Anniversary this year!
