New Wonder Woman Trailer Explores Diana’s Life And Destiny


The new Wonder Woman trailer humanizes the Goddess of Truth.

Much of the marketing around Wonder Woman has shown her to be a formidable warrior. And a very assertive one who will not let anyone tell her what to do. The new Wonder Woman trailer pulls back on her warrior nature and shows the evolution of a hero.

As promised from yesterday’s tease and via Gal Gadot’s twitter account, we have the latest and greatest—and possibly final—full-length theatrical Wonder Woman trailer. The footage opens with Diana as a child, and her mother, Queen Hippolyta, keeping a secret from her.

It soon shows a grown Diana, played by Gal Gadot, being trained by her aunt, General Antiope—a formidable soldier. Diana soon surpasses her mentor and joins the world of man, fighting evil on the front lines of World War I.

The trailer certainly has a tone of sympathy to it. Is it melancholy? Absolutely not. It’s more reflective than it is sad. It very much humanizes this great hero—which actually puts her perfectly in line with the mythology. Wonder Woman has always been a caring character who has great wisdom and strength. Check out the amazing trailer:
