It has been announced today that principal photography is underway on Wonder Woman. The highly anticipated action adventure movie is being helmed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), and stars Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will make her big screen debut this spring in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature, something which has fans very excited.
What appears to be the the full cast list has also been revealed with Chris Pine (Star Trek) already confirmed as as Captain Steve Trevor, and Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Exodus: Gods and Kings), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead) all set for currently unrevealed roles.
That’s an interesting enough cast, but not one with the huge names many were expecting. It could be that some actors have yet to be added, but with all of the above listed in a press release, chances are that this is it. Other interesting reveals include the fact that the director of photography will be Matthew Jensen (Fantastic Four), with Aline Bonetto (Pan) serving as production designer, Martin Walsh (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) serving as editor, and Lindy Hemming (The Dark Knight) set to take on the role of costume designer for Wonder Woman.
Principal photography on Wonder Woman will take place in the UK, France and Italy. A brand new official image has been released of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman to mark the occasion, and you can see that below. It appears as if she’ll have a different costume in this movie…
