Yesterday, actress Gal Gadot revealed via Instagram that WONDER WOMAN had officially finished principle photography. WONDER WOMAN will officially mark DC’s fourth film in their self-proclaimed DC Extended Universe, which currently comprises of MAN OF STEEL, BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and (later this year) SUICIDE SQUAD.

WONDER WOMAN will also mark the first female-led superhero movie — at least in the current generation of superhero films — beating Marvel’s own CAPTAIN MARVEL film by a substantial margin.

With production now behind her, director Patty Jenkins took to Twitter to comment on the recent wrap.

Below is what she said in a series of tweets.

“So happy and excited to have wrapped the first Wonder Woman film!! And one William Marston’s birthday, no less! (WW’s creator)

What an incredible cast and crew. So grateful to them. And going to miss being with Gal Gadot every day. What a shining star of a person.

Good, kind, strong and impressive and what a performance!  Gal is a Wonder Woman, for real.

And Chris Pine is one of the greatest people I’ve ever met. He blew my mind and became one of my favorite humans. Mindblowing talent and…

…what a special spirit. Gal and my best friend, and partner, beginning to end.  I love those guys and the whole cast and crew.

Will miss you guys. Can’t wait for everyone to see all of your great work. Happy bday to WMM!”

Not a lot has been shown from the Wonder Woman film just yet, but at the very least, based on the few shots we’ve seen, we can say it looks like it’s a visually stunning piece. Let’s just hope that the filmmakers have been able to make a captivating story to go along with it. Perhaps one of the biggest flaws in BATMAN v SUPERMAN was that the plot lacked cohesion, though perhaps with the release of SUICIDE SQUAD and WONDER WOMAN, we’ll be able to see if that’s a WB problem or a Zack Snyder problem.

Either way, you can count us excited to see Wonder Woman finally lead her own movie. What do you think of Jenkins’ comments, and how excited are you to see Gal Gadot return to the big screen as the influential feminist icon? Let us know in the comments down below!

WONDER WOMAN hits theaters on June 2, 2017.
