Wonder Woman’s feature debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was arguably one of the standouts from that film. Aside from the positive views on Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman proved to be a big surprise for fans of the character. Wonder Woman is a staple in DC’s Justice League, since the character was introduced around the same time the United States joined in WWII.
While Wonder Woman won’t however take place during the second World War, DC is changing history up a bit as it will in fact instead take place in WWI. From everything I’ve seen so far, I can honestly say that this movie looks to be a great period peace, especially for those who may be a bit unfamiliar with WWI. This film will help to further establish the DCEU as we inch ever closer to Justice League Part I.
The latest Wonder Woman trailer has upped my expectations even higher. From the story standpoint to the visuals, this film will look to give a faithful adaptation to the character of Wonder Woman. There were many great moments from this trailer. Some were better than others. Here’s my list of the “10 Most Badass Moments From The Latest Wonder Woman Trailer.”
Watch the trailer below!
1. An Amazonian Warrior Takes Flight
Here, we see an Amazonian warrior jump off a cliff using her rope and arrow to help her glide along the cliff. It’s a moment that’s short lived however since it appears that this Amazonian will be taking a deadly injury from one of the soldiers weaponry. Still, it’s a great shot while also showing the audience the amazing land of Themyscira.
2. Blocking Bullets Like A Boss
We have quite a few shots of Diana blocking bullets with her Bracelets of Submission, however this one depicts her almost spider-like reflexes. The best part of this entire shot is how nonchalant she appears while doing it. It’s a great moment that shows off her agility, but it simply doesn’t compare to the look on the attackers face after she blocks the bullet from point-blank range.
3. Taking Out Criminals For Breakfast
This shot appears to be a continuation from the previous one. It looks as though multiple gang members will corner both Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and Diana Prince in an alleyway. Unfortunately for them, they don’t know what they are in for because they have clearly messed with the wrong woman. She once again blocks multiple bullets with ease and gives us a little taste of some of her hand-to-hand combat skills even without wearing any armor.
4. Wonder Woman Headed For Battle
If there’s one shot in this trailer that proves Wonder Woman’s courage and willingness to out in the tide of battle, this is it. Wonder Woman doesn’t appear to be fazed by anything and is prepared to fight no matter the circumstances. This moment shows true bravery and a dedicated hero in the heat of battle. I cannot wait to see this scene unfold on the big screen.
5. Blocking A Bullet One Mile Away
You’d think that the enemy would have learned by now that bullets do absolutely nothing to Wonder Woman. But alas, bullets will fly and with that Diana will just have to keep doing her thing. The slow motion shot of the bullet ricocheting off her bracelet is a thing of beauty.
6. Wonder Woman Jumps Through A Window
While there are many blink and you’ll miss it moments, this is certainly one of them and boy does it deliver. Taking the enemy by surprise, Wonder Woman jumps through a glass window shattering it in the process. An epic fight is about to begin as the enemy is about to come face-to-face with an Amazonian warrior.
7. Wonder Woman Slays An Enemy While Riding On A Horse
This scene was briefly shown from the last trailer, but here we get to see Diana begin to cut down on what we can presume is a guy riding a motorcycle. Though quick, this gives us another glimpse into Wonder Woman’s iconic fighting methods. Not only is she fast on foot, but she can be even deadlier riding on a horse.
8. Fear The Lasso Of Truth
Though we saw brief glimpses of her using her famous Lasso of Truth on Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this clip shows audiences that Wonder Woman will be using this weapon to subdue enemies. I honestly cannot wait to see what they have in mind for the Lasso of Truth as I’m getting more excited by the minute just to see more footage of this iconic tool.
9. Spinning/Jumping Roundhouse Kick To The Shoulder
This guys in for one hell of a treat. Wonder Woman is seen here jumping and doing what looks to be a roundhouse kick to the enemies shoulder (he’s just fortunate it’s not to his face). We should expect plenty of hand-to-hand combat from this movie as this shot is no exception to this rule. The enemy better look out for themselves because when Wonder Woman is fighting mano y mano, there’s only one clear winner here.
10. Wonder Woman Takes Out A Pole With Her Sword
As if her sword couldn’t have been sharper, this clip shows that the blade on her sword will cut through anything like butter. In this case, it’s a pole from a buildings structure. Was this done purposely? I’d like to think so because it seems like Wonder Woman is trying to bring the whole place to the ground and what better way to do it than to start at the base of a building?
Fan’s are certainly in for a real treat when Wonder Woman hits theaters next June! What was your favorite shot from this trailer? Share your thoughts in the comment section below and don’t forget to share!
