New concept art from the Wonder Woman is released featuring Wonder Woman first becoming a hero in the movie.

EW.com offers the concept art depicts scenes about half-way through the Wonder Woman movie when Diana saves women and children from the English and German battlefield during WW1 despite being told not to and to play by man’s rules. 

“It’s a very powerful moment,” Gadot says. “We have a character committing to her true self, doing what she believes needs to be done.” 

The article offers more plot details which includes mention of Ares:

Diana is thrust toward her destiny after American intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes near her island, pursued by the German army. Trevor has discovered that German general Erich Ludendorff (Danny Huston) has plans to release a chemical super weapon, potentially killing millions. Diana wants to help — convinced that this evil could only be the work of Ares, the God of War.

Trevor escorts Diana to England, where she catches her first glimpse of industrialized London, or Man’s Land, a world she doesn’t quite understand, specifically the era’s antiquated gender and social norms. But it’s this battlefield scene that marks the first time Diana reveals her iconic garb.

It's noted both director Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns equate the scene to Superman.

“[This scene] reminds me of when Superman caught Lois and caught the helicopter [in the 1978 movie],” Johns says. “But this one is even more visceral.”  

See the Wonder Woman concept art below. 

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

Synopsis:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
