WONDER WOMAN OPENS 1 JUNE 2017
It’s been a long time coming – too damn long, really! – but we finally have a female superhero film. Debuting in the comics in 1941, and brought to life on TV in the 1970s by Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman finally gets the big screen treatment – and with a female director at the helm (Patty Jenkins, Monster). Like the first season of the TV show, Wonder Woman takes place during war, but this time WWI, when the Amazonian princess, Diana (Gal Gadot), rescues US pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and is drawn away from Paradise Island and into the wider, more dangerous world of man.
