In case you missed last nights TV special DC Films Presents The Dawn of The Justice League, Then we have some of the updates that came out of it for you. Not the least of which is our first look at the upcoming Wonder Woman stand alone film. Set in the World War I era, and starring Gal Gadot as the title character, This is certainly to be one of the most anticipated films of 2017, as it is the first real female led superhero film in a major cinematic universe.
Sure origin stories have done to death, but a Wonder Woman origin seems necessary. It is also pretty cool that we are going back in time to see her well before the events of Batman v Superman, which will help separate the film and allow it to stand on its own. The footage is beautiful, very cinematic, and has us excited for the what the film could be. The issue at hand is still, as was before, can Gal Gadot carry a film? Yes there is no doubt she does look the part, but she is an unproven commodity as an actress which makes us very nervous. Also in the myriad of footage we received from the special, we have very little of her actually speaking on screen, which is a little disheartening. The hop is that she steps up here and is able to shine in the role.
Check out the footage!
