Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman debuted at Comic Con

Wonder Woman

The first image of Gal Gadot as Diana Prince (fitted out in full Wonder Woman garb) has been released online, following its debut at the Batman V Superman Comic Con panel.

Her character portrait joins the previously released posters for Bats (Ben Affleck) and Supes (Henry Cavill), though neither was quite as rapturously received as this one has been.

Perhaps that has something to do with the drab, metallic grey sheen of both; something we’ve seen countless times before.

But Wonder Woman in all her Amazonian glory, in an other-worldly environment? That’s something we’ve never seen on screen.

You never would have imagined people needed a good reason to see a Batman vs Superman movie, but it’s certainly starting to feel that way. If Gal Gadot’s performance (and Zack Snyder’s filmmaking, of course) can live up to the promise of that striking image, then this might actually be an interesting new superhero movie after all.

We won’t find out until it hits cinemas May 2016.
