First Clip From Wonder Woman Shows Diana Kicking Ass in an Alley

Chris Pine brought the first full clip from Wonder Woman with him to The Tonight Show, wherein we get to see our favorite Amazon princess taking on a gaggle of men with guns.

This is a scene that we’ve seen parts of in trailers before—Diana using her gauntlet to deflect a bullet from Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and surprising him in the process. Yeah, not so much the damsel in distress you’ve got there, Steve. Diana and Steve are both decked out in period dress from World War I, and Diana’s got on some glasses that are quickly sacrificed. It’s neat to see her dressed up like this, and to see the full fight sequence.

It feels promising for the film that there are several humorous beats evidenced in the 45-second clip. As I’ve said in the past, part of what leads me to not love recent DCEU movies is their intense self-seriousness. This scene, however, starts with Steve saying dryly, “Oh look, it’s the bad guy convention,” as he and Diana are confronted. It feels fun, even as they’re being threatened by baddies. I also like his floundering when he realizes that Diana has deflected the bullet away.

Gal Gadot looks fierce as hell and though she doesn’t say anything in the clip, well, actions speak louder than words here. Since Pine was the guest star on The Tonight Show, it’s clear that they picked a scene that showcased his character. I love the way Steve and Diana play off of each other physically, and hope their chemistry’s as good when they’re actually speaking to each other.

We’ve been wondering about Wonder Woman marketing tie-ins (and the lack thereof) ’round these parts, so clips like this—that demonstrate Diana’s badassery and totally upend the expectations for a woman in her era—make us happy. I hope they’re planning on a Gal Gadot media blitz to ramp up for the movie’s June 2 release. Please give us all of the Gal Gadot.
