SAN DIEGO: Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has shared the first poster of the movie, ahead of its highly anticipated introduction before fans at the San Diego Comic-Con convention.
The image features a profile of the Amazonian superhero in her famous red, blue and gold outfit, clasping a sword against a pink and blue sky, above the words: “Power. Grace. Wisdom. Wonder.”
“A dream come true! Happy to finally share this with you all,” the Israeli actor and model wrote alongside a post of the image on Twitter.
Reaction to such new material is being watched carefully by industry analysts. Wonder Woman is the first modern superhero movie to focus exclusively on a female protagonist.
A misogynist social media backlash against the all-female Ghostbusters reboot shocked Hollywood, although much of the criticism arose from the fact that the leads in the original film were men.
The reaction to Gadot’s tweet was mainly positive, with Chris Cabin of the Collider film blog calling the image “eye-catching in its use of colour and shadow.”
He added, however, that “part of me isn’t entirely comfortable with the fact that the image blacks out her face and focuses entirely on her figure.”
But fan account @dceufacts, which is devoted to news from the DC Comics Extended Universe, posted: “This is gorgeous! Best poster for a superhero movie in ages.”
