Who Is Wonder Woman?

Gal Gadot's WONDER WOMAN Takes Over DC LEGENDS This June

It was ideal preparation to play a butt-kicking superhero, so no wonder the training she received for Wonder Woman - including swordsmanship, Kung Fu and Brazilian jiu-jitsu - was a walk in the park.

Rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action, and some suggestive content. 141 minutes.

The most critical stretch of the film - and the best - comes at the beginning, when Diana (Gal Gadot) is growing up among the other Amazon women on Themyscira, an island cloaked by an invisible shield to protect its inhabitants from Ares, the god of war. Directed by Patty Jenkins, the first woman to helm a superhero saga, it gives free rein to the dynamic Gal Gadot.

For now, we will have to see if the film will be successful enough to get the filmmakers back to the drawing board in order bring Wonder Woman to the big screen once again.

Previously the Ministry of Economy and Trade had requested that Batman v Superman should be banned in 2016, as Gadot also appeared as Wonder Woman in the film, but the request wasn't successful. I think it should do well for DC as it sets a new standard for what they are capable of, "Suicide Squad" notwithstanding.

Still, her male counterparts have hogged the big-screen glory. "It's now going onto a new generation of people and I'm thrilled". She did an awesome job depicting Diana throughout "Year One" so seeing her return, however brief, elevates the annual.

Director Patty Jenkins, whose past credits include writing and directing Monster starring Charlize Theron and helming episodes of Entourage, Arrested Development and The Killing, has given Wonder Woman a fantastic overhaul that delivers a visceral treat which positively sparkles with invention, humour and solid action. The movie was set to open Friday in just 15 theaters in Lebanon.

It's pretty amusing that Pine says that - his character, Steve Trevor, actually goes on a "war to end all wars" in Wonder Woman. It's been a long time since I saw movie that made me feel like I needed to stand up and cheer at the end but "Wonder Woman" made me do so. As a woman in the real world, I can't identify with that, but it is thrilling to watch Diana and her fellow Amazons leap and twist and shoot men with arrows.

An iconic superhero will finally make it onto the silver screen this weekend with the release of the much-anticipated "Wonder Woman".

What drew you to cast Connie Nielsen as Diana's mother, Hippolyta, and Robin Wright as General Antiope? The film's best moments come when she and Steve are discussing the differences between their worlds. Do we demand to relate with her buddies Superman or Batman? She brings a warmth and reliability to the character that easily grabs your attention and makes you champion her cause. In interviews, she routinely mentions her military service in Israel, and she often posts in Hebrew on social media. Wonder Woman suggests that a new role exists somewhere between the Bond girl and the damaged, bloodthirsty living weapon. (Lucy Davis is an added delight as Steve Trevor's secretary, Etta Candy.) Plus, as every other white guy named Chris books a superhero franchise of his own, Pine happily plays second fiddle to Gadot, adding charisma and silliness and a nice dollop of nudity. One where the hero (or heroine) operates in an all-too-real world, one where she can not save everyone and may even begin to wonder if anyone is worth saving. "Any time there's a controversy like this, it only raises awareness for the film". After that, they began training with fake swords, shields and even donned Wonder Woman's metal cuffs at one point. "Wonder Woman" evokes not only the spirit of Richard Donner's "Superman", but also Joe Johnston's "Captain America: The First Avenger", while still being its own thing.
