The new teaser, which made its world premiere just after Gadot took the stage at the awards show to introduce a performance by Pitbull, Camila Cabello, and J Balvin, shows us a young Diana Prince, being warned by her mother to “be careful of mankind. They do not deserve you.” Lucky for us (and the innocents of the DC universe), this heroine doesn’t listen.
The new footage features Gadot swooping in to save male lead Chris Pine for a change, and plenty of action-packed fight scenes, though it doesn’t seem like much of a fight when you’re up against this bulletproof Amazon—plus, it’s made all the more amazing when you think about the fact that Gadot was five months’ pregnant during her reshoots for the film.
We also get a closer look at Wonder Woman’s female villain Doctor Poison. And of course, thanks to Pine’s Steve Trevor, it finally becomes clear just how Diana Prince gets her regal alter ego moniker. In a recent interview with W, Gadot revealed that she prepped for her audition for the superpowered role with the help of another queen: Bey.
“When I auditioned for Batman v Superman, I didn’t know it was for Wonder Woman,” she said. “The director, Zack Snyder, asked me to do a camera test. That was torture. They were looking at six or seven girls, and we were all in separate trailers and were told to stay inside until they called us. Waiting is my enemy number one, and I was losing my mind. So, I decided to put on Beyoncé. Who runs the world? Girls! I just started to dance, and I let my anxiety go. Thank you, Beyoncé!”
