Injustice 2 Getting Wonder Woman Movie Events And DLC

In an interview with Comingsoon.net, stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine discussed a number of topics including what source material they looked to when developing their characters and how Diana has changed between the events depicted in Wonder Woman and the present day.

Before she was Wonder Woman (Gadot), she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Now, the world (almost) has Wonder Woman - and not a moment too soon. It can be pretty hard to get behind portrayals of women in comics books and/or superhero movies because they're either defined by their relationship to a heroic man and/or wearing a form-fitting, skimpy costume that would be totally impractical for combat (or any other physical heroics that might occur).

Hearing about the great war (WWI) taking place outside of Themyscira's borders, and the millions of men, women and children butchered, Diana ventures into Man's World to take down Ares, the God of War, who she's convinced is responsible for the travesty. Chris Pine is a ideal balance to Gadot, also playing up the comedy and the sincerity, while having fun with the adventure aspect of the film.

"Wonder Woman" opens in theaters on June 2. Gadot's Diana and Pine's Steve are as comfortable and fun together on screen as you could hope.

Wonder Woman might have been created a few generations ago, but this film proves she is the timeless hero that everyone can celebrate.

Lebanese Wonder Woman fans may miss out on their chance to see the movie for a very surprising reason. Wonder Woman, however, does not enjoy that same luxury and the writers were nearly forced to deliver a story closely resembling the comic books, and all the better for it. Still, as Jenkins said, it is a major part of Wonder Woman's mythos, even if it's a little outdated. Set against the back drop of World War 1, the movie is said to have re-created the period for the audience quite similar to the first "Captain America" movie, of its counterpart, Marvel Comics. In 2014, the actress wrote a Facebook post to stand in solidarity with her fellow citizens during Israel's brief war with Hamas, a US -designated terrorist organization, during the summer of 2014.

"They had chose to do WWI, and I was like 'Woah, let me think about that.' And then I nearly very quickly loved it, because we 've seen World War II so much; there were a lot of misunderstandings at play in WWI - it wasn't clear what was going on".
