Who are the New Wonder Woman Movie Castmembers?

Jennifer Lawrence Removed From Hunger Games Posters In Israel.

Filming has officially begun on the Wonder Woman movie, and to mark the occasion Warner Bros. released a first image and more details on who’s joining Gal Gadot in the cast. “Almost 75 years in the making…#WonderWoman is underway,” Gadot wrote on Twitter, sharing the photo of the heroine, wearing a dark cloak that still leaves part of her famous costume visible as London’s Big Ben stands in the background. Fearing they the standard theatrical posters would be vandalized by religious extremists, promotional art for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two has removed the lead character in two Israeli neighborhoods.

Taking to Twitter to reveal the first official image from the film production, Gal Gadot has released a new photo of herself as Wonder Woman—or perhaps just the Princess Diana—on the set of the movie. Today’s cinematic landscape could have looked very different, both in terms of how superhero movies are released and also when it comes to the aesthetic of the DC Cinematic Universe. “Wonder Woman” is over a year and a half away, but Warner Bros. is giving themselves plenty of room to get it right (and maybe add cameos during the undoubtedly scheduled reshoots). Star Wars Episode VII, Batman v Superman, Captain America Civil War, Suicide Squad – the geeks of the world are going to be in for quite the treat in 2016.

I’m just assuming that George Miller’s Wonder Woman would’ve had a lot of screen time, based on the artistic choices that Miller tends to make, alongside his talented editing partner Margaret Sixel. Yet in the midst of all these big name movies arriving in the immediate future, a film that just started shooting featuring the most iconic female superhero of all time is already making waves: Wonder Woman.

If the previous images we have seen of Chris Pine in the role of U.S. pilot Chris Pine are any indication, it would likely appear that Wonder Woman is in London in time for World War II… best of luck with the Blitzkrieg, there. While the story itself makes it sound like Israeli law would supercede those local bans and allow the posters to hang if the studio wanted, the decision has been made to be sensitive to local sentiment, since there is a history of previous posters being defaced in those communities. “Unfortunately we are subject to unofficial coercion that forces us to be more careful,” said Liron Suissam VP of marketing at Nu Star Media, which is handling the Mockingjay posters. “We have had endless vandalization, and clients prefer not to take the chance. The character will first appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when that film hits theaters this coming spring, before her solo film arrives on June 23, 2017.

The decision is the client’s.” The poster, which depicted Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everden against the backdrop of a fiery mockingjay sigil, has been replaced with a similar poster where that Katniss has been removed, leaving only the logo and text. No plot details are revealed, and besides mention of Gal Gadot playing Diana Prince and Chris Pine playing Steve Trevor, the roles of the actors have been concealed.

The film is being directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster) and it stars in addition to Gadot and Pine, Nicole Kidman as an Amazonian warrior, Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (Children of Men), David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead). It’s more colorful than Snyder’s take, which I like, and the tiara is cooler and more Amazonian, but there’s strangely no “W” emblem, and it’s much more sexualized and exploitative. Joining Jenkins behind the camera are director of photography Matthew Jensen (“Chronicle,” “Fantastic Four,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie,” “A Very Long Engagement,” “Pan”), and Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (“Chicago,” “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “V for Vendetta”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“The Dark Knight” trilogy, “Topsy-Turvy”).

Will the famous Professor Kapatelis, who helped Diana become familiar with the world of man and in defeating the evil god of War, Ares, be in the film? Since this version of Diana will evidently have the same origins as the one in the New 52, will any of her brothers and sisters, such as Lennox, make an appearance?

Where Batman brings a human perspective to super heroics and Superman brings an extra terrestrial perspective, Diana is able to introduce an entire new mythological realm into the mix.
