"#Wonder Woman" is one of the most anticipated 2017 movies. It's the first time that the iconic DC character's get to be on the silver screen and Warner Bros has decided to take the risk in its development of an extended cinematic universe. We have already had a sneak peek of Gal Gadot's role in Batman v. Superman, but there is plenty to see and discuss. Let's analyse the origin of this incredible feminist hero.

"Wonder Woman" Origins

 

The character was introduced by DC Comics in the 40s. The first number was released in 1942 and it was called Sensation Comics. Diana Prince first appeared in All Star Comics #8. Wonder Woman was created by the psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston, his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston and H.G. Peter.

Apparently, Olive Byrne is the inspiration: with her physical appearance, she paved the way for the iconic character. The comic became so popular. In the 80s, ABC and CBS aired the Lynda Carter's TV version and in these latest years, they tried unsuccessfully to bring her back in a live action version.

In 2011 NBC shot a pilot with Marvel's Agents of Shield's Adrianne Palicky in the main role. After Supergirl's success, I can foresee a The CW's adaptation in the future. 

'WW' Official Trailer

The movie will be directed by Patty Jenkins. Gal Gadot has stated that it will be a dark rendition of the character's backstory. The actress is perfect for the role: with her previous experience as a military, she is just a spot-on Diana Prince.

After the Comic-con version, Warner Bros has officially released the first full lenght trailer of "Wonder Woman" 2017.

I have to be honest, I' m hooked. Apparently it will be an action packed, dramatic story that will be divided into two timelines. Diane's description of Earth is impressive: 'I used to want to save the world, this beautiful place. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness within. I learned this the hard way, a long long time ago.'
