Wonder Woman’s childhood revealed in new trailer

CEBU, Philippines - Diana Prince’s origin and powers are revealed even further in a new trailer for the wildly anticipated action-adventure “Wonder Woman” which debuted at the 2017 Kids’ Choice Awards.

Israeli actress Gal Gadot plays the Amazonian warrior princess Diana, a daughter of Zeus. She made her big screen debut as the DC superhero in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” last year. In the new trailer released Saturday, Diana discovers her ultimate power in more ways than one: her inner strength, as she’s being trained to fight by her aunt and general Antiope (Robin Wright), and the power of her now-famous steel cuffs, or Bracelets of Submission.

“Never get your guard down!” Wright’s character tells Diana. “You expect the battle to be fair?”

In the comics, the Amazons wear cuffs to remind themselves of the time when they were oppressed during the rule of Hercules, who is a villain in their world (the character is not featured in the movie). In a previous trailer for the film released in November, Diana uses her bracelets to deflect bullets.

“Wonder Woman” is set in the early 20th century. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, raised on the sheltered island paradise of Themyscira, trained to be an unconquerable warrior.

When an American pilot (Chris Pine) crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her homeland, convinced she can stop the threat. She takes on a civilian alter ego, Diana Prince. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

A new poster for “Wonder Woman,” showing the heroine wearing her red, blue and gold superhero costume, was released Friday.

Joining Gadot in the cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, and Saïd Taghmaoui.

“Wonder Woman” opens in the Philippines on June 1.
