Gal Gadot shares new image of Wonder Woman plus new cast members added
WONDER WOMAN herself, Gal Gadot, has shared a new image of the Amazon Princess via Twitter, while WB has released a new cast list (sans character names) for the upcoming superhero feature. Joining Gadot in the film is the already announced Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor (see him in costume here), Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Said Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya and Lucy Davis. A healthy mix of talent, but there's no word on which characters they'll be playing (let your imagination run wild). There's nothing to say that this is the full cast list either and I'd speculate we'll hear a few more names as filming continues on the film. My guess is that many of these folks would make up part of the Amazon cast, either as Gods or Warriors, but we'll see.
Previous rumored names we've heard were Nicole Kidman for an unnamed role (possibly the Queen of the Amazons), Eva Green for Circe, and Sean Bean for Ares, but either they aren't part of this announcement or their deals didn't close. Such is the way things go when securing names for big ticket movies. Yesterday, we got a look at Megan Gale in costume as Wonder Woman for George Miller's canceled JUSTICE LEAGUE film, which is an interesting dynamic compared to Gadot's look, which is a bit more warrior-like. You can catch up on our latest WONDER WOMAN scoop HERE if you're looking for rumored details on the story, characters, etc.
WONDER WOMAN is currently set for release on June 23, 2017.
Here's the full press release:
BURBANK, Calif.— Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman feature film, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will make her big screen debut this spring in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature.
The film also stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films) as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Netflix’s “House of Cards”), Danny Huston (“Clash of the Titans,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), David Thewlis (the “Harry Potter” films, “The Theory of Everything”), Ewen Bremner (“Exodus: Gods and Kings,” “Snowpiercer”), Saïd Taghmaoui (“American Hustle”), Elena Anaya (“The Skin I Live In”) and Lucy Davis (“Shaun of the Dead”).
The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers.
Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).
Principal photography will take place on location in the UK, France and Italy.
Set to open in 2017, the Wonder Woman feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
