Not only did Wonder Women past and present unite around the iconic heroine’s first solo film, but DC Entertainment also hosted a gathering of several big-name writers and artists to celebrate the character prior to Wonder Woman‘s Los Angeles premiere.
The creators that attended the gathering included Jim Lee, Marguerite Bennett, Trina Robbins, Dan DiDio, Shea Fontana, Greg Potter, Steve Leialoha, Nicola Scott, Len Wein, Liam Sharp, Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chiang, Marc Andreyko, James Bonny and Tony Daniel. Each has worked with the character either as an artist, writer or editor — and many are thanked in the film’s credits.
Wonder Woman tells the story of the Amazonian princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore on Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I. The long-awaited film was recently deemed the summer’s most anticipated, beating out the likes of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Reception to the film has been positive so far, with early reviews calling it the finest DC film since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner, Lisa Loven Kongsli and David Thewlis. The film arrives in theaters June 2.
