New 'Wonder Woman' Trailer: Is This Exactly the Movie DC Needs?

"I used to want to save the world, this beautiful place. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness within." So begins the new trailer for DC's Wonder Woman movie, full of more of the great Gal Gadot than there was in basically the whole Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.

Director Zack Snyder has opened DC's cinematic universe with visually bleak, color-sapped films, and fortunately it looks like director Patty Jenkins is giving Wonder Woman at least some of the zest that Marvel's No. 1 competitor needs. The scenes in Princess Diana's native Themyscira are positively stunning.

Overall the trailer offers a variety of flavors we didn't get to taste in the first one. Also: lots of bullet time, Chris Pine begging the Amazons to "stop the war to end all wars," and a comment on the petticoats' battle-unreadiness.

Wonder Woman hits theaters on June 2, 2017. Next, visit New York Comic Con 2016 with Fuse:
