Last night the CW previewed it’s new TV show, Legends of Tomorrow, as well as Warner Bros. upcoming superhero movies — primarily Batman vs. Superman. But we were most excited about the very brief glimpse we were given of the still filming Wonder Woman, which is not set for release until the summer of 2017.
It looks like Warner Bros. has decided to do a classic origin story for the character, to explain to movie goers who she is and why she is important in the DC universe. This bucks the recent trend of eschewing origin stories in films like the upcoming Batman and Spider-Man films. But unlike those characters, Wonder Woman has not already had her story told multiple times on the big screen and introducing the character to the audience is probably necessary.
Wonder Woman is scheduled for release on June 23, 2017
