Despite the initial backlash and wave of concerns over Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe film, the Israeli model shows her acting and fighting skills in the latest trailer.
Fans openly criticized Warner’s decision to cast Gadot as Wonder Woman, going as far as mocking and attacking the actress for her thin build. However, the 31-year-old underwent months of extensive training in martial arts to prepare for the role.
Gal Gadot is seen in the trailer fighting her way through a battlefield in full Wonder Woman gear, dodging bullets with her bracelets, swinging her sword and shield, and even making use of her iconic Lasso of Truth.

While the main bad guy of the film seems to be a general played by Danny Huston, fans of the comic books have been keen to note the mysterious masked woman is the real villain.
This notorious enemy goes by the name of Doctor Poison, and much of the trailer’s images featuring chemical weapons seem to confirm the theory of her involvement in the film. Elena Anaya from ‘The Skin I Live In’ plays Doctor Poison.
‘Wonder Woman’ stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, and others. The film premieres on June 2, 2017, on regular format and IMAX nationwide in the U.S.
