It seems like only yesterday the actress was signed to take on the tremendous task of portraying the Amazon Princess’ big screen debut. She was met with more than her fair share of criticism, but she took it in stride with a humorous response that proved why she was perfect for the role, and left audiences in awe of her performance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There have been glimpses of the World War I period piece, including an image which hints at Diana possibly making a modern-day appearance in Gotham. But the little footage we’ve seen, while amazing, wasn’t nearly enough to sate anxious fans. However, our wait to see more may not be much longer as Gal Gadot has revealed via Instagram she’s finished filming on Wonder Woman’s standalone.
Now there is the question of how much rest the actress will get, since filming on Justice League began in mid-April. Superheroes really don’t get breaks, and by the time Justice League: Part One has wrapped, she’ll probably be off to film yet another appearance for the DCEU slate.
The Patty Jenkins (Monster) directed Wonder Woman solo movie also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor and Connie Nielsen as Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta. Robin Wright and Lisa Loven Kongsli are also on board as the princess’ aunts, General Antiope and Lieutenant Menalippe, respectively. The much-anticipated film is scheduled to release in theaters next summer on June 2, 2017.
