Just a few moments after Warner Bros Pictures released the second-teaser for “Suicide Squad,” the studio released the first “Wonder Woman” trailer. This marks the first substantial footage shown from the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), which will be starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.

Fans will first get to meet the character when she makes her big screen debut this spring in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but “Wonder Woman” will mark her first time headlining a feature.

The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).

The film was produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.

Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).

Fans will get to see Gal Gadot in “Batman v Superman” but this “Wonder Woman” film won’t hit theaters until 2017. The Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The movie is scheduled to debut June 23, 2017.
