These New ‘Wonder Woman’ Photos Will Hold You Over Until Tonight’s Sneak Peek on ‘Gotham’
Although Warner Bros. released a handful of TV spots late last week, there’s some concern among fans about the lack of promotion for Wonder Woman, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. In comparison to other big-budget blockbusters (and superhero films in particular), the marketing for Wonder Woman has been relatively low-key — strange, since it’s such a highly-anticipated summer release for several reasons, not the least of which is that it’s the first solo female superhero film in over a decade.
It’s also a bit odd considering how heavily WB markets their other major releases for months in advance. Following her scene-stealing intro in last year’s Batman v Superman, Gal Gadot’s take on the iconic hero is set to make her solo debut on June 2, and by now we should be absolutely drowning in TV spots, sneak peeks, photos and featurettes. Not only is Wonder Woman the first solo female superhero film since 2005’s Elektra (I mean, seriously), but it’s the rare big-budget blockbuster directed by a woman — making WB’s lack of promotional content for the film pretty suspicious.
But it looks like things are finally picking up: In addition to announcing a special sneak peek that will air during tonight’s episode of Gotham on FOX, the studio has released a series of new stills and behind-the-scenes photos featuring Gadot along with director Patty Jenkins and co-stars Chris Pine, Lucy Davis and Said Taghmaoui. You can check those pics out in the viewer below:
Wonder Woman also stars Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Connie Nielsen, Lisa Loven-Kongsli, Elena Anya and Ewen Bremner, and hits theaters on June 2.
