Diana (Gal Gadot) was raised among the 아마존 warriors of the Mediterranean island of Themyscira, which the Greek god Zeus has cloaked from view 의해 the outside world. As Diana approaches adulthood, her mother, 퀸 Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), reluctantly allows her to be trained in combat 의해 General Antiope (Robin Wright) — Diana’s aunt — in preparation for the inevitable return of Ares, the god of war. It soon becomes clear that Diana has powers that far surpass the superhuman strength of her compatriots.
When she sees a plane crash into the ocean, Diana swims out to sea and rescues World War I U.S. fighter pilot and intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who is being pursued 의해 a fleet of enemy ships. An epic clash between the Amazonians and the Central Power troops ensues on the island’s shore, and Diana witnesses for the first time the ravages of battle. When the dust clears, Steve tells the Amazonians about “the war to end all wars” that is raging in the outside world.
Hearing Steve’s tale, Diana resolves to defend humanity against the forces of Ares, whom she insists is at the 심장 of the global conflict. She grabs the island’s Zeus-bequeathed God Killer sword, as well as a shield; golden Lasso of Truth; and red, gold and blue uniform — accoutrements that effectively transform her into the superhero Wonder Woman — and sails off to 런던 with Steve.
Diana poses as Steve’s secretary — adopting the surname “Prince” — and meets his collaborators: expert interlocutor Sameer (Saïd Taghmaoui), sharpshooter Charlie (Ewen Bremner) and soldier-for-hire Chief (Eugene 메리다와 마법의 숲 Rock). Together they trek to the front line to seek out and destroy a gas weapon developed 의해 German General Ludendorff (Danny Huston) and the masked Maru, aka Doctor Poison (Elena Anaya). To Diana’s mind, stopping Ludendorff is the key to ending the horrible conflict and all others to follow.
A comic-book staple for 75 years, Wonder Woman had been eyed for a big-screen adaptation for nearly two decades. And with its achievement, Warner Bros. Pictures has not only produced the character’s big-screen debut, but also the latest 제목 in the DC Extended Universe — following Man of Steel, 배트맨 v Superman: Dawn of Justice(ACApril ’16) and Suicide Squad.
At the helm of Wonder Woman was director Patty Jenkins, whose enthusiasm for the character is unmistakable. “I loved Wonder Woman in a
clean and simple way, and felt that what she stands for is very powerful,” says Jenkins, 집 in L.A. one 일 after wrapping post. “She believes in beauty and 사랑 — things that make her different from any other superhero. The struggle for years was, ‘What do we do with Wonder Woman?’ My answer was, ‘What do 당신 mean? Just do Wonder Woman as an origin story. She’s got a legion of 팬 — let’s do it.’”
Jenkins tapped Matthew Jensen, ASC as her director of photography. The cinematographer had shot Josh Trank’s sci-fi thriller Chronicle (AC March ’12) as well as episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and he earned his superhero cred shooting Trank’s Fantastic Fourreboot (2015).
Jensen concludes, “Shooting a Wonder Woman origin story was a tremendous opportunity for me, because she is a 팝 문화 icon. The bar was set very high 의해 Richard Donner’s 슈퍼맨 [AC Jan. ’79] and [Christopher Nolan’s] 배트맨 Begins [AC June ’05]. We felt a lot of pressure to live up to those. I’m happy with the results, and hopefully the world likes it as well.”
