The first 'Wonder Woman' trailer lassos Comic-Con

Warner Bros. revealed the first trailer for the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman today in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment.

Wonder Woman's small part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was clearly not enough, but that's okay because DC Comics fans have her standalone film to look forward to.

The movie's cast remained tight-lipped about the plot and their characters, but the trailer shows "magizoologist" Newt Scamander (Redmayne) arrive in NY in 1926 with a case of magical creatures that escape, wreak havoc and face threats from the non-magical humans in the city. We're a mere two weeks away from their next film, the super villain team-up Suicide Squad, but there's also the first female superhero solo movie, Wonder Woman.

"Wonder Woman" flies into theaters June 2, 2017; can we buy our tickets now?

Many convention-goers see Saturday's "Wonder Woman" panel as the big event of Comic-Con.

The trailer begins with the superheroine finding American pilot Steve Trevor (played by Chris Pine) washed up on a beach.

The trailer's official description says: "Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior". This was just about everything that fans could have been hoping for for their first glimpse of Diana Prince's upcoming adventure, and we couldn't be more excited.

When Diana finds out about the Great War going on outside, she's not happy, and vows to singlehandedly end it. Is is it her lasso that stems from her time as a BDSM symbol, or is it her bloodlust and anger at the world of men that drives her to fight and protect? The clip then takes viewers to the all-female island where Wonder Woman was born.
