Wonder Woman in her solo movie will be a different version than in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Gal Gadot’s debut as Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice has been positively received. In only a handful of key scenes, Diana showed a couple of different sides to her superhero persona. As seen at Luthor’s party at LexCorp, Diana is mysterious, elegant and sophisticated. She comes across as worldly-wise, fitting in very well with the modern era.


Gal Gadot’s entrance as the fully decked out Wonder Woman is simply jaw-dropping.  The much talked about scene shows she is a courageous, powerful warrior. One of the positive takeaways from Dawn of Justice is raising the anticipation for Wonder Woman’s own solo movie.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Gadot reveals “In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman.”

The evolution of Diana from a young woman to the mightiest heroine ever will connect to an old World War I photograph. In Wonder Woman’s solo movie, Gadot confirms “We go back 100 years to when she’s more naive. She’s this young idealist. She’s pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you’ve seen.”


In the comics, Wonder Woman’s well-known origin explains that she was constructed from clay by her mother Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons who prayed for a daughter, and was brought to life by the gods.  Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven disclosed a year ago that Woman Woman’s origin in the movie will follow a route similar to the more recent New 52 comic book series where Diana has incredible demigoddess powers because she is the daughter of Zeus, king of the gods.

Wonder Woman’s release date has been moved up a couple of weeks to June 02, 2017. Directing the film is Patty Jenkins, who previously worked with Charlize Theron in the actress’ Academy Award winning performance in Monster. Starring along side Gal Gadot is Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta (Diana’s mother), Robin Wright as General Antiope (Diana’s Aunt) and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy (Diana’s friend).
