Here’s a weird thing – the presence of DC villain Doctor Poison in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie flew completely under our radar until this trailer dropped. Indeed, the whole marketing campaign has been light on villains, discounting Danny Huston’s German general (almost certainly up to no good) and David Thewlis’ British peer (definitely a bad guy, according to Wikipedia). Now, at last, we’re getting a better idea of the forces arrayed against our favourite Amazonian.
In addition to a much-needed and punchable villain, this latest and apparently last trailer is big on stunning imagery – if nothing else, WW looks the business, and cinematographer Matthew Jensen is certainly bringing his A game for director Patty Jenkins – scope out that shot of Diana (Gal Gadot) riding through a field of yellow flowers. That’s downright mythic, son.
Less than a month to go now, team! Wonder Woman hits Australian cinemas on June 1, 2017.
