Wonder Woman’s first big screen adaption is in Batman v Superman. Unlike her DC Trinity counterparts, her origin story is not recognizable to many. Fortunately, the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman standalone will see Diana go from Amazon princess to the heroine we know and love. In an interview, Gal Gadot revealed the movie’s dark tone but noted there would be aspects of humor.

During promotion for Dawn of Justice, Gadot told Digital Spy, “In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman.” She continued, “It’s very interesting. It has moments of humor, but it’s pretty dark. We all saw before the beautiful coming of age of Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman. We don’t know anything about Wonder Woman.”

As she stated in a previous interview, the Wonder Woman we see in her solo film will be different from the one depicted in BvS. “We go back 100 years to when she’s more naive. She’s this young idealist,” Gadot explained. “She’s pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you’ve seen.”

You can see Wonder Woman in action in Batman v Superman now. The Amazon’s solo film was recently moved up from its June 23, 2017, date to June 2, 2017. Along with the announcement came the reveal of two untitled DC films getting dates added to Warner Bros’ DCEU release slate.
