On March 11th Gal Godot premiered the new Wonder Woman trailer at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. The first trailer for the upcoming DC superhero film gave us a firm idea of Diana’s mission against a pending war that could destroy the world. This new trailer focuses on how Wonder Woman came to be as well as her Amazonian Origins.

Thanks to this trailer we see her home Themyscria as well as the intense training she endured. As she got more advanced so did the training, becoming more difficult with every lesson. She then meets Chris Pines Steve Trevor who takes her away to the grey dismal streets of London. We’re treated to some beautiful sights such as her home, the Lasso of Truth, sword, shield and impervious bracelets.

Wonder Woman is fighting sullen looking bad guys in unknown uniforms. She burst through walls but is no match for the modern revolving doors as she attempts to walk through with her shield and sword in tow, don’t you just hate when that happens? This movie is the fourth instalment in the DC Extended Universe.

After the financial success of Man of Steel in 2013, it kick-started DC’s attempts at a Cinematic Universe after Marvel started their box-office/critical success with their cinematic universe. In 2016 we were treated to two new films, Batman Vs Superman Dawn of Justice, which also featured Gal Godet’s Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad. Both films were poorly received critically for their over-serious tone and poor storytelling.

Batman Vs Superman’s critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes was “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justices mothers a potentially powerful story — and some of America’s most iconic superheroes — in a grim whirlwind of effects-driven action” and it sits at 27% based on 353 counted reviews.

Suicide Squad which sits at 26% based on 301 reviews with the consensus; “Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humour than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren’t enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.” Will Wonder Woman finally be the break that the DC Extended Universe needs?
