Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman may have only appeared in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” for a short period of time, but the badass 5,000-year-old Amazonian warrior gave viewers the perfect introduction to her follow-up standalone film in 2017.
Earlier this week, the Kitana Fan Facebook page posted a couple of new movie set images showing an army of Amazons standing in front of a large green screen on an island beach in Italy, as they prepare to engage in battle with their adversaries.
Although there are over 30 woman warriors pictured in the snapshot above, the Facebook page specifically points out martial artist and stuntwoman Samantha Jo (who previously played Kitana in “Mortal Kombat Legacy” and was also a stunt double for Antje Traue in “Man of Steel”). Jo is believed to be playing Euboea, one of Diana’s close friends in the comics.
Like Wonder Woman, Queen Hippolyta, and other Amazonians, Euboea possess superhuman strength and immortality. She also happens to be a high-powered general among the female warriors, despite being only a minor character. It’ll be interesting to see how big of a role she’ll have in “Wonder Woman.”
“Wonder Woman” comes to theatres on 2nd June 2017.
