A new international trailer (apparently made for the Chinese market) for ‘Wonder Woman’ has found its way online which has a lot of fans excited, not because it has a lot of footage that we have not seen before (it does not ) but because it contains a brief shot of Wonder Woman’s showdown with the main villain of the film, the God of War Ares, something that we have not seen in any of the domestic trailers.
All of the marketing material we have seen so far has primarily focuses on Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), which is understandable considering they are the heroes of the film, and keeping the villains under wraps is not necessarily a bad thing, especially for a character like Wonder Woman whose enemies are not as well known to the general public. Throw in the fact that the whole movie is a prequel to ‘Justice League’ and most of the supporting characters and villains will play little to no part when Wonder Woman’s story time jumps to the present, and it makes sense to focus most of the attention on the woman herself.
Still, it is exciting to see her face off against Ares, as it hints that the movie will be bigger than just seeing her fight in WWII, though that will undoubtedly have some cool moments as well. Check out the new trailer for yourself below, and share your thoughts in the comments section!
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
