When the Justice League finally assembles in November, the heroes face a threat unlike anything they've confronted before in Steppenwolf and his invading Parademons from Apokolips. However, according to actress Gal Gadot, this menace may not be as much of a mystery to Wonder Woman as he is to her teammates.
When asked by Us Magazine how Wonder Woman has changed since fans last saw her, Gadot explained, "She’s grown up — it’s been a century, after all! She’ll bring her specific qualities to a group dynamic, and she understands the enemy better than anyone else."
While understanding the enemy is a key strength, it isn't the only thing working in Wonder Woman's favor. According to Gadot, Wonder Woman's familiarity with the Dark Knight following the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will help them to forge a bond.
"Since [Diana and Bruce] fought together, they know each other’s strengths," she said. "They also understand the hope Superman stood for, that was lost [when he died], so they feel that more than the others."
Wonder Woman and the Amazon's ties to Steppenwolf have been hinted at in several instances already. In the trailers, we've seen the Apokoliptian general arrive on Themyscira via Boom Tube, and there's also footage of the Amazon warriors embroiled in battle with the invading Parademons. Most recently, in the Wonder Woman epilogue "Etta's Mission," Etta Candy reunited with Sameer, Charlie and Chief Napi to lay out a mission to recover a "very old" and "very powerful" artifact, which is most certainly one of the Apokoliptian "living computers" known as a Mother Box.
