Warner Brothers has a lot riding on ‘Wonder Woman’ due on June 2. The film will not only mark the first female-led superhero movie of the modern wave of comic-based films (thus, not counting past flops like ‘Catwoman’ and ‘Elektra’), it may be WB’s redemption after blah audience reaction to ‘Batman V Superman‘ and ‘Suicide Squad’.
WB opted not to release a new commercial for ‘Wonder Woman’ during the Super Bowl, but they have released a new international trailer which mixes new footage with previously released clips.
We basically already know the basic structure of the film, as Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) arrives on Themyscira/Paradise Island, informing the Amazons of “the war to end all wars” otherwise known as World War I. The Amazon’s princess, Diana (Gal Gadot) then departs and joins Steve in the outer world, masquerading as his secretary.
Though it is only glimpsed briefly, there is a shot of a gas mask engulfed in a mysterious fog. We know that this factors into the larger plot of the film, lending credence to Elena Anaya‘s villainous character actually being classic WW comic bad guy Doctor Poison. It’s also heavily rumored that Danny Huston’s villain role is actually that of Ares the God of War, another of Diana’s most persistent foes.
We also know that the God Slayer– the sword that Diana was seeking in ‘Batman V Superman’– also plays a role and we do get a glimpse of Diana wielding it in this clip.

Further adding proof that Ares is the Big Bad of ‘Wonder Woman’ is a recently released snap shot of a Wonder Woman action figure which reveals that if a consumer buys all the toys in this assortment, they can assemble a larger Ares “build-a-figure.” (The same enticement was used in the DC Universe Classic toy assortment that included Wonder Woman.)
Gadot will then be seen in ‘Justice League’ directed by Snyder, releasing on November 17, 2017.
