Wonder Woman has finished production and is set to be released on June 2, 2017. We’ve only seen a few on-set images and just a quick glimpse at some of the action in promotional footage that debuted months ago. This week, Warner Bros. finally revealed the plot synopsis for Wonder Woman in their press release for their 2016 San Diego Comic-Con appearance.
“Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer, and 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 and a story by Zack Snyder and Allan Heinberg, which is 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.”
In other DC Comics-related news, it looks like Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West is going to suit up as a speedster much sooner than we thought.
Warning: Minor spoilers for the second season of The Flash are up ahead.
Towards the end of the season, we saw Wally and Jessie Quick hit by the same particle accelerator that gave Barry his speed. It seemed to have a much greater effect on Jessie, given that she was knocked into a temporary coma. But that’s not going to stop Wally from becoming Kid Flash in the premiere episode of the third season, reports Heroic Hollywood.
