The clip, which premiered during Sunday’s MTV Movie & TV Awards, opens with the young protagonist, princess Diana, living on the fictional Amazonian island of Themyscira. “Fighting does not make you a hero,” her mother warns. “Be careful with mankind, Diana. They do not deserve you.”
But instead of staying clear of humans, Diana becomes entangled in World War I after uniting with American Army pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and joining the battle as Wonder Woman. The trailer showcases her varied superpowers – including an arsenal of moves with her iconic, bullet-blocking shield – and teases some lighter, more comedic moments, like dealing with the restrictive clothing of the early 20th century.
The Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman, the fourth title in the DC Extended Universe, is out June 2nd.
