New ‘Wonder Woman’ trailer serves up action, more details as Gal Gadot shines

The DC Cinematic Universe will serve up Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and fans just got a new look at the film.

Wonder Woman is set during the First World War, U.S. military man Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) finds himself stranded on the Aegean island of Themyscira, home of the Amazons. During the disastrous Gallipoli campaign, the Amazons get a firsthand look at the most destructive conflict and “the war to end all wars.”

Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
