Comic book and comic book movie fans have been waiting with bated breath for YEARS to see the iconic character Wonder Woman on the big screen.
Now, we’ve been gifted our first look at Gal Gadot as the legendary Amazonian princess in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.
At the San Diego Comic Con, Gadot’s Wonder Woman is featured in one of three large posters. The other two include Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman.
The image is noticeably dark, almost brownish in color. It’s definitely in keeping with the “dark and gritty” visual theme that DC movies are going for at the moment.
The look almost makes it appear as if Wonder Woman’s uniform is brown.
Before anyone takes this image to be a literal interpretation, it’s possible that the classic color scheme will be used in the movie. If you look closely, you can see sort of the red, blue and gold colors.

Although noticeably absent are the stars. Hmm, too much perhaps?
In any case, there appeared to be some gripes here or there from fans about the length and body of Wonder Woman’s hair or the fact that she’s wearing heels.
After looking over the costume, I have to say it’s probably as realistic a look for the classic comic character as can be achieved on the big screen while staying true to the source material.
It’s just nice to see that she gets to have a sword AND her trademark lasso.

It must be said that whether Gadot realizes it or not this is a make or break interpretation.
As upset as some comic fans may have been with the Elektra and Catwoman movies, that’s nothing compared to the rage that will ensue if Wonder Woman falls flat.

Hollywood has been notoriously lazy when it comes to women comic characters, but Wonder Woman is going to have to be an exception. She is the third most known AND beloved DC character after Superman and Batman.
This first glimpse has left some hopeful, but we’ll have to wait and see how well the Amazonian heroine translates on screen.
