Thanks to the release of its official trailer and teaser photos, Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie, “Wonder Woman,” dominated social media buzz and started at least 136,000 new conversations.
This information was shared by media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service, according to Variety. In the trailer, Wonder Woman can be seen blocking bullets with her Bracelets of Submission and smashing through a window using her shield. The superhero’s powerful kick was even highlighted in slow motion.
Last week, lead star Gal Gadot also drummed up a lot of buzz for the movie when she suggested a new love interest for Wonder Woman in the sequel.
In the original film, Diana’s love interest is military man Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who somehow finds his way in Themyscira and enlists the help of the Amazon warrior to save mankind. But it seems like something bad will happen to Steve in the film because Gadot is already talking about his replacement in the sequel.
According to Batman-News, Gadot talked about Diana’s bisexuality and possible new love interest in Israel talk show “Good Night with Guy Pines.” The subject came up after “Wonder Woman” comic book writer Greg Rucka told Comicosity recently that the beloved superhero from Themyscira is bisexual. Gadot approves of this revelation and even has a person in mind to play her future love interest in the “Wonder Woman” sequel. “I saw her the other day, Halle Berry. She’s so beautiful. Wow! She’s gorgeous! So… yeah, I could do it with her,” Gadot said.
Earlier, Gadot told Variety that Diana’s interest in women actually “makes sense” because she grew up in a land where there are no men.
In the movie, Gadot said her bisexuality “never came to the table,” but it’s not hard to believe that it’s possible. “When you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense,” she said. “In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”
“Wonder Woman,” which is directed by Patty Jenkins, will be released on June 2, 2017.
