We’re only a couple of more months away from the release of the next chapter in the DC Extended Universe with “Wonder Woman”. I’ve posted a few of the trailers so far and when this one appeared yesterday and was labeled as the “Official Origin Trailer” I knew it was a good idea to share it with you in a post. Let’s take a look and then close out with some additional opinion.
The Synopsis: In the early 20th century, the Amazon princess Diana, who is living on the island of Themyscira, meets American military pilot Steve Trevor when he is washed ashore. After learning about the ongoing events of a world war from him, she leaves her home to try to help end the war. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already mentioned, I liked the first glimpse that we got from the SDCC and that continued into the longer more “Official” trailer that we got in —- I’d like to say November of last year. It’s good to see that we will get a promising look at Themyscira and get a full on proper origin of the famous Amazon. I’ve also already mentioned how WBP is going back one full World War and bringing us Diana from WWI times instead of WWII where she appeared in the comics. The film seems “brighter” in terms of scenery (outside of the dreary England of old of course) and its no lie that a lot is riding on this one. This will be the fourth film in the DCEU and as you know will precede “Justice League” and fans are nervous after the reception of both “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad” and its with good reason. These films are missing something at the end of the day and they need to fix that in order to ever hope of catching up with Marvel Studios and their continuing success stories on film. So what do you readers think of this trailer? Let me know in the comments section below. See you next time.
