Wonder Woman Movie Is A Fresh Approach To Ass-Kicking


The latest issue of Total Film magazine features an article about Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins.

Gal Gadot talks what the movie is about, with the article noting "Diana (as she is initially known) goes from a timeless isle to trenchwarfare in the 20th century."

"This is the character's origin story. She's not American - she comes from Themyscira, where she's raised by her mother [Connie Nielsen's Queen Hippolyta] and all the other Amazons," Gadot offers. "She's never seen a man in her entire life. This is the journey of her coming of age, of how she sees the world through different eyes."

It's also said the Wonder Woman movie "promises a unique mix of fantasy and historical reality," and that it will also feature a "fresh approach to ass-kicking."

"I feel like we're not the first people to have female fighting going on, but I feel that something very successful has come together here that is fully feminine, but still incredibly strong and sexy," director Patty Jenkins said as well as adding the Amazons have an ample skill-set, and are less about raw force than good, honest teamwork.

"Gal Gadot, really, truly is Wonder Woman. I've said so many times [on set], 'Gal, in the worst-case scenario, just be yourself - because you really are so true to the sprirt of this character," Jenkins said.

"Wonder Woman" has a June 2, 2017 release directed by Patty Jenkins also starring Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis , Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis and Connie Nielsen.
