The marketing for “Wonder Woman” has already showcased plenty of big moments for the DC Comics icon, but a new TV spot reveals precisely when she gained her secret identity of Diana Prince.
Titled “Together,” the promo balances action and humor as it focuses on the dynamic between Gal Gadot’s Diana and Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor as they struggle to explain her as well as the nature of their relationship. After fumbling for an answer, Steve tells David Thewlis’ Sir Patrick Morgan that they’re simply “working together.”
The spot ends with Diana beginning to introduce herself as princess of Themyscira, only for Steve to cut her off by re-christening her “Prince, Diana Prince.” And so, a secret identity is born.
Of course, Diana isn’t the only one with secrets: Thewlis, a “Harry Potter” veteran, is widely believed to be pulling double duty as Morgan, an advocate for peace, and the film’s antagonist Ares, the Greek god of war.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, “Wonder Woman” tells the story of the Amazon 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.
Written by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns from a story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder, “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 opens June 2.
