Gal Gadot shines in second Wonder Woman trailer

Former Miss Israel stars in much-anticipated DC Comics superhero flick set to hit theaters in June

Fans have been given a second tantalizing glimpse of Israel’s Gal Gadot as the heroic “Wonder Woman.”

Set to hit theaters on June 2, 2017, “Wonder Woman” focuses on a classic DC Comics character already seen in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

The latest preview opens with the brunette warrior — alias Diana Prince — explaining her reluctance to save the world.

“The closer you get, the more you see the great darkness within,” she narrates with scenes moving from modern Paris, to the lush, fantastical island of Themyscira and onto the horrors of World War I.

The clip promises plenty of action, with Wonder Woman tackling trench warfare, using her Bracelets of Submission to block bullets and even sneaking a sword down the back of an evening gown.

Gadot, a former Miss Israel, said at a publicity event for the film in March that she had never planned to be an actress and felt grateful to be playing a character her four-year-old daughter could look up to.

“I am so happy I’m going to be the one who’s going to tell the Wonder Woman story,” she added.

“It’s such an important story… But I also think it’s so important for girls — and boys — to have a female, strong superhero to look up to.”
