With the Premiere of Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman taking place last night and a fan screening the night before, the anticipation for the film is very high. So far reactions to the film has been overwhelmingly positive, some even deeming it the film that will save the DCU. We have already seen her character in Batman V Superman where she stole the show in the end, and we have seen her in various trailers for not only for her first solo film, but the trailers for The Justice League which will be in theaters this fall.
Entertainment Weekly had the opportunity to talk with Aline Bonetto, who shared with them some amazing images of the films visual world. They are linked down below if you would like to check them out. As you scroll through them there are many notes about each scene which really shows the attention to each scene’s attention to detail.
My two favorite images are titled “Welcome to Fantasy Island” and “The Docks”. This is because of how well I feel that the two worlds of Themyscira and London are displayed and contrast each other. One is a world that is deeply rooted in Greek mythology and embraces the nature all around it. While the other is London during the rise of the industrial revolution. Everything in sight is man made and dark, trains, cars, boats all which are releasing tons of smoke in the air. Soldiers going to or returning from battle. Seeing both of these images gives me an idea of what profound impact leaving the paradise of Themyscira and arriving in a war torn Europe will have on Diana. How is she going to deal with the culture shock she is going to have to go through? It’s moments like this that I look forward to in the film, besides all the action of course.
The rest of the images and the commentary are great as well, but they didn’t have as much of an impact as these two images did together. Even before the reviews of the film, being present at a panel with Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns and hearing them talk about Wonder Woman, had given me a lot of hope for this film. Let’s hope that Gal Gadot gives great performance as Princess Diana, and just maybe start to get the DCU back on track.
Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2nd, 2017.
