Warner Bros. has released a new Wonder Woman trailer, one that promises a (relatively) colorful and exciting action-adventure film set against the horrors of World War I. The upcoming DC superhero film stars Gal Gadot as the eponymous Amazon who teams up with pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) to go fight in The Great War. This looks to be a thrilling origin story and will undoubtedly be the biggest superhero film ever to feature a female lead. Director Patty Jenkins appears to have put together a superhero film that can do the character justice while also threading the heroine’s story into the DC Extended Universe. Be excited!

Here’s the official synopsis for Wonder Woman:
“Wonder Woman” hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”). Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films), Connie Nielsen (Fox’s “The Following,” “Gladiator”), Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), and Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”).
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.
