This is the moment fans like me have been waiting a long time to see. The first look at Wonder Woman for a live action film. Granted that film is Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring an ensemble of heroes and not the stand alone Wonder Woman film DC/Warner Bros. have been denying us for so long. But, this is not time for that debate, because just look at her, I’m kinda in awe.
Released at Comic Con, this is the very first image of Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the Amazon Princess. When her casting was announced there was a lot of criticism about her body shape and whether she could bring the strong presence required for this well loved character. Well, I think she looks good, yes I would opt for a more muscular version, but there is no doubt she pulls of the look of a warrior. I’m loving the shiny armour, the boots and the bracelets, and squee, I spy a lasso. Honestly, I would have like to see the white stars on blue, and may be a little more red but I accept that it is not going to be exactly the same as the comic versions, I’m okay with that.
My friends this image alone has made me truly excited about this film, I have seen Superman and Batman before, it’s been done, this, this is what I wanted to see and I am not disappointed. Seriously, tears in my eyes and everything. Let’s just hope the writing does the character justice.
It is my great honour to present to you Princess Diana of Themyscira aka Wonder Woman in all her glory. (Click her for the larger image, seriously it’s even more awesome)
