Last week, a new classified, and a report a few days later alleged the preview will play before Doctor Strange in theaters beginning Friday, November 4. The chatter has turned out to be true: star Gal Gadot revealed a teaser for the trailer that’s hitting the Web tomorrow.trailer was reportedly
Sadly, the teaser doesn’t hold any new footage and instead focuses on some snippets from the previous reveal: Wonder Woman sliding across the floor in a battle against World War II soldiers, an Amazon archer leaping into the air with her bow in hand, and the Hans Zimmer- and Junkie XL-composed anthem that played over the character’s debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but still!
Watch it below:

Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gadot as Diana Prince, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright and Lisa Loven Kongsli as Diana’s Amazonian aunts Antiope and Menalippe, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy. Also starring are Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans), David Thewlis (the Harry Potter films), Ewen Bremner (Exodus: Gods and Kings), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), and Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In). However, their characters have stuck to the shadows, so perhaps we’ll see more of them in tomorrow’s new trailer.
We know the film will see Diana’s life on the mystical paradise island of Themyscira, as well as her meeting with Steve before leaving her home to enter the throes of World War II. There were some rumors about the Ancient Greek Gods involved in this story, but we’ll have to wait and see.
To say there’s a lot of pressure on this movie is an understatement. Expectations are high given the immense importance of the character of Wonder Woman and the heavy criticisms of the DC Extended Universe. But even though Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad were denounced by critics and many fans, there seems to be hope that Wonder Woman can revitalize this franchise. Tomorrow’s trailer will hopefully provide more support for why it might.
Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 2, 2017.
