Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot as the title character is a stand alone film from the DCEU franchise. The film was released on June 2nd and follows the adventures of the Demi-God Diana of Themyscira.
The movie is an origin story of how the Princess of the Amazons becomes the hero we all know and love. The movie starts out with a tie in to Batman vs. Superman. We can see Diana going into a Wayne Enterprises building and she sits down at a desk and starts to look at the picture we see of her and Steve Trevor and the group that follows her through World War 1. Diana starts to flashback to what seems a simpler time and starts to explain how she was created and how she grew up. Of course her mother tells her that she was made of clay and give life by Zeus. Her true origin is that she is the daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus.
We see the movie follow her from her child hood to her early adult years. By this time she is training and has been for quite some time. At this point she has no understanding of what she truly is and just thinks she is just one of the amazons and nothing different. That is until she starts to display abilities that are different than the others. Soon after this happens she meets who I like to call her destiny Steve Trevor!
Steve crashes through the portal or shield whatever you want to call it that hides Themyscira from others and lands in the sea. Diana swims out to save Steve, but the German army is close behind. The Amazons including Diana attack and fend off the Germans, but at a cost. Antiope and a few amazons were killed in the skirmish. Diana wanted to leave Themyscira with Steve and go out into the world and help him save it.
They both did just that, they left Themyscira and went to London and started and adventure that would eventually lead them to fending off the God Of War! Diana would go on to stop the God Of War Aries and fulfilled her destiny.
I know I left a lot of the film out, but I mean in all honestly the movie was amazing. D.C. And Warner Brothers needs to use a similar formula for their other stand alone films and they will do just fine. Wonder Woman was probably the best comic book super hero adaptation I had seen since Avengers. I love Man of Steel and BVS and through Suicide Squad was great! Wonder Woman just blows them all away. Gal Gadot was perfect! Chris Pine was great as Steve Trevor, and the rest of the cast really fit the story. I hope Wonder Woman 2 can follow the same formula even though it may not be set in the early 1900s it will still be great!
I give Wonder Woman a 10/10 if D.C. Keeps it up they will have many great movies to come! I for one cannot wait until Justice League in November!!!
