‘Wonder Woman’: First Look at Gal Gadot, Official Cast Announced

Batman V Superman Trailer Image

Following a first photo from the set of Wonder Woman, now we finally have the first official image of our titular heroine, showing the warrior wearing her traditional armor with Big Ben in the background so I think it’s safe to assume that she makes her way to London at some point in the film.

Gal Gadot will be playing the Amazon Princess for the second time after her cinematic debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (above) next March.

Warner Bros. also issued an official press release announcing the full cast of the first female-led superhero movie of the modern era, which has begun production a week ago. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Nicole Kidman made the cut or maybe she’s still negotiating her deal. However, details of the film are still scarce.

Wonder Woman is set to hit theaters June 23, 2017. Check out the official promo photo below straight from Gadot herself, followed by a press release (h/t Batman-News). Click the image to view a larger version.

BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman feature film, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will make her big screen debut this spring in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature.

The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).
The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.

Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).
Principal photography will take place on location in the UK, France and Italy.

Set to open in 2017, the Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
