Right now, the marketing of Wonder Woman is riding high on the recent social media reactions of those who’ve managed to snag a screening of the film. For months, we’ve been unsure whether or not Wonder Woman could be the film to turn the tide of the DC Extended Universe, but earlier this week, many journalists sang the praises of the flick, fueling even more enthusiasm.

If you’ve found yourself super excited to check out the movie, yet deprived of footage to check out, then wait no longer. The folks over at IGN have released an exclusive clip of the film, and in it, you get to see actress Gal Gadot absolutely commanding the role of Wonder Woman in a big way. 

Check out the clip below:

The clip starts off with her totally ragdolling what I’m assuming is a German soldier before approaching an officer. He is none too intrigued by her abilities, and does his best to take her down, and nearly does her in before she catches his sword. The clip manages to check off almost every fight scene cliché in the span of a minute, and some jaded viewers may find themselves rolling their eyes throughout. However, to those of us who take delight in some of these clichés taking place in the rich, shiny skin of a superhero film, it was all kinds of fun.

The synopsis for Wonder Woman is below:

“Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”

Wonder Woman hits theaters in June 2, 2017.
