Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman film is currently shooting in England, and we’ve been getting lots of fun, World War One era set photos with Gal Gadot and Chris Pine, including these recent images of Gadot holding Wonder Woman’s sword and shield. All of the pieces are starting to come together, including more casting; Connie Nielsen recently joined the film as Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta. The movie is happening for real! After decades of development, I’m still surprised that it’s finally being made.
And we’re going to get a sneak peek of the movie tonight! The CW is airing a special called DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League after The Flash, and while the main focus will be the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the show is also promising a look at Wonder Woman. I doubt it will be much, since the film is still fairly early in the shooting process, but it will be something. I’m anticipating we’ll get a look at some of the World War One era bits we’ve been seeing pictures of, but what I’d really love to see is a peek at Paradise Island or something similarly mythological and cool. Whatever we get, it will be very fun to see something so early.
The special is set to air at 9:30 Eastern, 8:30 Central (or 10:30, if you’re in Atlantic Canada like me!), which poses one big difficulty: the season premiere of Agent Carter is on at the same time! It’s quite a conundrum, but that’s what DVRs are for. Between Agent Carter, The Flash, and a look at Wonder Woman, it’s going to be an awesome evening all around.
If we get a look at anything worth commenting on, I’ll post a recap of the special tomorrow and screen caps if I can get them. Maybe they’ll announce who everyone is playing? Maybe they’ll reveal the film’s villain? Maybe it’ll be four seconds of grainy footage? We’ll find out tonight!
