Wonder Woman will finally get her big screen debut this weekend in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but most fans of the Amazonian Princess are anxiously awaiting  her solo film, coming out next year.

We’ve seen some footage from the film so far, but none of it has been of Diana’s time on Themyscira…until now.  WB has released a brand new photo showing several Amazons from the upcoming film, including first looks at Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), and her two aunts General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli).


“Themyscira is influenced by the Greek but it’s clearly more then that,” producer Charles Roven tells the outlet. “It’s a place that has the ‘you’ve never been to’ kind of feel. But once you’re there you’re not so sure you really want to leave so fast.” ​

“To me, they shouldn’t be dressed in armor like men,” director Patty Jenkins says of their armor. “It should be different. It should be authentic and real—and appealing to women.”

Starring Gal Gadot as the title hero, Wonder Woman also stars Robin Wright (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In)  Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).

The film is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers, and is being directed by Patty Jenkins.

Wonder Woman is set to open on June 23, 2017.
