What is it with the new “Wonder Woman” movie and cars? Hot on the heels of the recent news that Hot Wheels’ line of vehicles tying into the film may have given away the villain Ares’ secret look, it’s been revealed that the movie will be getting some on-car promotion at a couple of NASCAR events as well.
According to NASCAR.COM, Stewart-Haas Racing’s No. 10 Ford Fusion, driven by Danica Patrick, will be sporting a paint scheme promoting the film at an upcoming race in Kansas and at the Monster Energy Open at Charlotte.
Directed by Patty Jenkins and based on a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, “Wonder Woman” follows the Amazon princess who — after discovering fighter pilot Steve Trevor on Themyscira — sets out to bring an early end to World War I. The film takes place long before the events of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” where the character made her theatrical debut.
Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, and David Thewlis.
