Watch the First Action-Packed Footage from DC's Wonder Woman
DC may be scrambling to catch up with Marvel in their cinematic universe, but judging from the Suicide Squad Trailer and the First Wonder Woman Footage Are Finally Here" href="http://www.outerplaces.com/science-fiction/item/10965-the-new-suicide-squad-trailer-and-the-first-wonder-woman-footage-is-finally-here" target="_blank">awesome Suicide Squad trailer from DC's CW special last night, they're going to be nipping at Marvel's heels in no time. But even more important may be the Wonder Woman movie, which is the first solo outing to come out after DC decided to create a cinematic universe. Watch the exciting footage from the CW special here:



Just as Suicide Squad is rumored to be DC's Guardians of the Galaxy, many fans are comparing Wonder Woman to Captain America: The First Avenger, mostly because it's one of the first movies to come out in the DCEU and it's a period setting in Europe (but a different World War). But as someone who found The First Avenger pretty boring, I think this actually looks better, as Gal Godot seems more than up to the task of taking up the mantle of arguably the most iconic female superhero of all time.

She still didn't get to speak in this footage (to be fair, Chris Pine didn't either), but she did get to give a little background on her character in the CW special:



In the above video, Godot calls the movie a "coming-of-age story," and explains that we will find out her entire history as an Amazon from Greek mythology, as well as her mission and motivation. Pine, for his part, says that it's "pivotal" to tell a story about a powerful woman right now, and I agree, although it will remain to be seen if the movie lives up to the long feminist history of its superhero. I still wish the costume were a little more practical and a little less sexualized, but that's not Patty Jenkins' fault, and she seems to get to the heart of the character:

Opening quote
"The greatest thing about Wonder Woman is how good and kind and loving she is, yet none of that negates any of her power," the director says in the video.

Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 23, 2017.
