Wonder Woman is an upcoming box office movie based on the popular DC comic heroine, Wonder Woman, which is expected to be released on June 2, 2017, in the USA and most countries worldwide and distributed by Warner Brothers. It is going to be the fourth title in the DC Extended Universe which mainly focuses on the films. The movie’s main stars are Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, and Chris Pine, who plays Steve Trevor. Both of these are the most prominent and recognizable characters in the comics and previous movie franchises. Other notable characters include Robin Wright (known for her role as Claire Underwood in the popular Netflix drama series House of Cards) who plays General Antiope and Connie Nelson who plays as Queen Hippolyta. Patty Jenkins is the movie’s director with the story being written by Allan Heinberg and Zack Snyder.
The movie is set during the period of World War I whereby Steve Trevor, an American pilot, happens to crash land on the shores of the island known as Themyscira, where the amazons live away from the rest of the world with no men on the island. In the island, he encounters Diana Prince, princess of the amazons, who has been trained to be an undefeatable warrior. Steve then tells Diana of massive conflict that is taking place in the outside world who then decides to leave her native home in an effort to fight alongside the Americans as she is convinced that her training can help end the conflict. In her efforts to fight alongside the people of the outside world in a war that will end all wars, Diana will go on to discover her true abilities and her true purpose in life. If the story also follows the story line from the comics and previous franchise, it is expected that once Diana leaves her native island of Themyscira, she will not be permitted to return.
The production of Wonder Woman first started in November 2015 where it was referred to under the working title ‘Nightingale’. The movie is filmed in the United Kingdom, Italy, and France.

A few weeks later in the last weeks of April, production continued at the Louvre whereby a Wayne Enterprise truck was seen alongside Gal Gadot.
