New “Wonder Woman” image shows Gal Gadot at home in the battlefield
Empire unleashed a new image of DC’s warrior Amazonian princess who will be making her mark in the coming Wonder Woman film. And obviously nothing beats a good cardio run amidst debris.
Patty Jenkins, director of Wonder Woman, also spoke on character motivations, which is always a good sign:
What motivates her is philosophicalShe 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.
Jenkins also spoke about the significance of Wonder Woman‘s WWI 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. 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.
