Also known as Wonder Woman.
We may have already seen Diana Prince in action following 'Batman v Superman', but this ultimate female heroine has been given even more of a makeover ahead of the spin-off movie 'Wonder Woman''s release next year starring Gal Gadot.
Wonder Woman to hit theaters next summer
In new images released of Wonder Woman in all her costume glory, she's giving us a kind of Jedi-Spartan vibe. It's far from the bright red and blue colours of former times; after all Diana Prince has been around for thousands of years, that means her outfit has to look just as ancient.

Gadot is being directed by Patty Jenkins in 'Wonder Woman’s' first stand-alone movie.
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has dished on why she thinks it was important that a female director oversaw the heroine’s big screen debut. While more female directors are always needed in Hollywood, Gadot believes a woman behind the camera was particularly necessary for this film.
Gal Gadot has said it was important that Wonder Woman had a female director.
When asked how important was it for her that a woman direct the movie by Entertainment Weekly, Gadot said: “I think it’s important. It’s a story about a girl becoming a woman. I think only a woman, who has been a girl, can be able to tell the story in the right way.”

There's a lot to get through, and that's certainly not the end.
Losing track of the upcoming DC Comics movies? We're here to help you out with that, and stop you getting confused with Marvel. All you need to know right now is that 'Suicide Squad' comes this summer and we'll be seeing a lot more of Batman and Superman over the next four years.
'Suicide Squad' is coming this August
Here's the DC schedule so far:
Almost criminally entertaining, this preposterous thriller mixes buckets of humour and emotion into the violent, twisty action. And Kevin Costner gets his best role in years, a remarkably complex character who's unpredictable and thoroughly engaging. So even as the story grows increasingly ridiculous, the film remains both gripping and a lot of fun.
It's set in London, where hot CIA operative Bill (Ryan Reynolds) is on the trail of an evil anarchist (Jordi Molla) when he's captured, tortured and killed. To stop an imminent attack, the CIA chief Wells (Gary Oldman) needs to know what Bill was working on. So he calls in scientist Franks (Tommy Lee Jones), who has been experimenting with transferring memories from brain to brain in animals. For his first human trial, he copies Bill's dying memories into the only suitable brain available on such short notice: psycho killer Jericho (Kevin Costner), who's serving a death sentence in prison. And now Jericho is desperate to sort out the chaos in his head.
Director Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) keeps everything moving so briskly that there isn't time to stop and think about how silly the premise is. All of these characters act on their basest impulses, never thinking through anything before they charge into the next situation. Viewers who try to make sense of the plot, or of London's geography, will find their brains aching like Jericho's. So it's better to just hang on and enjoy the ride. The film's edgy, urgent tone adds the illusion of depth amid the mindlessly brutal violence, while the formidable cast adds weight to a variety of rather thinly drawn characters, from Oldman's bluster to Jones' wry wit. Only Costner gets some real depth to play with, and Jericho is constantly surprising, mixing a killer instinct with brainy invention and some properly dark emotions. His scenes with Gal Gadot (as Bill's wife) are unnervingly tense and moving.

Wonder Woman is the movie's real star.
Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman in her first live action embodiment since the 70s when she was portrayed by Lynda Carter. 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice' sees two uber-macho superheroes go head to head, but their rivalry is disrupted by the arrival of a much wiser peer in the form of centuries-old Diana Prince.

We're hardly new to the idea of a strong female superhero in cinema. There's been at least ten in the 'X-Men' franchise, then you've got Gamora in 'Guardians of the Galaxy', Catwoman in 'Batman' and Black Widow in 'The Avengers', but there's still a lot more room for oestrogen in the comic-to-film world and its incredible that it's taken until now to re-boot the Amazonian princess Wonder Woman.
This year's most eagerly anticipated movie is a critical flop.
Probably the most highly anticipated film of the year, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' predictably stormed the box office with $170.1 million domestic ticket sales and $424.1m global. That's easily superseding critically acclaimed hits like 'Zootopia' and '10 Cloverfield Lane', and yet it continues to be viciously attacked by critics.
It's Batman VS. Superman VS. the critics
As it stands, 'Batman v Superman' starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill is at just 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, actually dropping from 29% in just a day. Both would-be fans and film reviewers were left feeling more than a little disappointed at the distinct lack of any humour, the controversial ending and a lot of over-the-top production. Our own critics, Rich Cline, explained that the main issue lay in the theatrics. 'The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous', he said.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' features the film debut of Wonder Woman, but why has it taken so long for the heroine to make it on to the big screen?
Both Batman and Superman have seen various incarnations on the big screen, but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice they will be joined by a superhero whose film debut is long overdue, Wonder Woman. The story of Wonder Woman’s journey to the big screen could be a movie in itself, as until now writers, directors and studios have tried and failed to make the heroine leap from comic books to film.

Wonder Woman’s live-action debut came in a 1974 TV movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby, but she wasn’t quite as comic book fans had expected. This Wonder Woman was blonde and had a very questionable costume, which featured some blue leggings and a red coat with blue and white starred sleeves.
The 'Batman v Superman' star explains the central conflict between the two comic book icons.
Batman and Superman are clashing on the big screen in Dawn of Justice, where Henry Cavill’s character faces off against the debuting Ben Affleck. The pair are arguably the two most recognisable superheroes of all time, but as Cavill explains, they’ve always been on opposite sides of the spectrum.

“When it comes down to Batman, Clark, Superman doesn't agree with the way he carries out justice,” Cavill said. “He understands that Batman is trying to do this justice thing, but Clark’s view is entirely different.”

After 2013's beefy Man of Steel, director Zack Snyder goes even bigger and darker with this sequel, cross-pollenating Clark Kent's story with flashbacks to the origins of Bruce Wayne and his Dark Knight alter-ego. The problem is that the film is so big and loud that it can't help but feel bloated, especially since so much of what's on screen feels rather vacuous. But it looks amazing and is relentlessly gripping.
After a Bat-origin prologue, the story kicks off with the climactic battle from Man of Steel as seen from the perspective of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), watching his city being destroyed by Superman (Henry Cavill). This further fuels the rage that began when his parents were murdered. And that fire is stoked by the mischievous millionaire Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). Meanwhile, Superman/Clark is struggling with how the world is revering him as a god, which is straining his relationship with intrepid reporter Lois (Amy Adams). As these very different vigilante heros head toward a climactic confrontation, Luthor is up to something seriously nefarious. And the ensuing chaos brings another hero into the open, Wonder Woman Diana Prince (Gal Gadot).
While the various plot threads are fascinating, and Snyder maintains a snappy pace, the overall story centres on the fact that Affleck's prickly, bitter Bruce is easily manipulated into doing terrible things, which makes him rather unlikeable. And Cavill's fundamentally good Clark isn't much easier to identify with. Both are also oddly constrained by their costumes and bulked-up physicalities, which leave them unable to move properly. This allows the side characters to steal the show: Adams adds emotion and passion, Eisenberg provides the nutty nastiness, Irons is hilariously cynical as Bruce's butler Alfred, and Fishburne is all bluster as Lois' editor. But in the end, the film belongs to the gorgeous, clear-headed Gadot, instantly making her stand-alone movie the most anticipated superhero project on the horizon.

Gadot will appear in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ later this month.
Gal Gadot will make her big screen debut as Wonder Woman on March 25th in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Israeli actress is just as excited as the rest of us about it. Appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' Tuesday, Gadot explained how she landed the coveted role and how much it means to her, especially as the mother of a four-year-old girl.
Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Gadot said when she first auditioned for the role with director Zac Snyder she had no idea what film she was reading for. She was then asked to read again, this time with Ben Affleck so decided it was time to ask Snyder what the top secret role was.
