While BATMAN v SUPERMAN may not have clicked for a lot of fans, there are few who came out of the film disliking Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman. Sure, her time in the film was brief, but like a lot of the cast in the film, Gadot turned out to be one of the better parts of the movie itself. 

It’s with that mindset that many fans find themselves more than a little bit excited for Diana Prince’s first solo outing in the standalone WONDER WOMAN flick. The film is currently in the middle of production, and thanks to the Daily Mail, we have more than a dozen set photos of the actors on some Italian beach.

Take a look at the photos below!

Of note is the fact that Gal Gadot is wearing the same outfit she was wearing in the recently-released Amazon photo, pictured at the top of the article. We, of course, see Chris Pine as Steve Trevor in the shots, and he looks as dashing as ever, even while washed up on shore. In the original Wonder Woman origin, the inciting incident of the story is Steve crash landing nearby, and if I’m not mistaken, it looks like the scene being shot above may, in fact, be chronicling that moment (varied a bit, of course). 

Overall, I’m digging the costumes of the Amazons, as well as the costumes of the soldiers. While most would have chosen WWII as the logical setting for a story like this, there is something cool about setting the film during The Great War, as it’s been tackled much less in Hollywood than its counterpart. It certainly makes for a more unique aesthetic.
