Wonder Woman was easily one of the most impressive elements of DC’s blockbuster superhero movie, ‘Batman V Superman’… and now it’s not long until we get to see Gal Gadot suit up as the iconic heroine in her very own solo film.

Can’t wait to see more of Wonder Woman in action?

Well luckily, Empire Magazine has unveiled a cool new image.

So why does the Amazonian princess get involved in worldly conflicts?

“What motivates her is philosophical,” explains director Patty Jenkins. “She isn’t just taking out bad guys or fighting crime. She believes in goodness and love. [She] is fierce and willing to fight, but only to protect a better vision for mankind. Hers is really a coming-of-age story.”

Of course, this new image depicts Wonder Woman in the midst of a World War I battlefield. And Jenkins even went some way towards explaining that particular setting.

“My approach was to focus on telling the story of mechanised war and how that would look to a god visiting our world for the first time,” she says. “I wanted the audience to understand the horrors that a war on this scale makes possible and how shocking that would be to someone who comes with a strong sense of honour and justice. She doesn’t realise yet just how senselessly dark the world can be.”

‘Wonder Woman’ stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman alongside Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, and Lucy Davis.

Patty Jenkins directed the film based on a script by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns.

‘Wonder Woman’ heads to cinemas on 2 June 2017.
