FIRST LOOK: The Amazonian Warriors of ‘Wonder Woman’
Entertainment Weekly has given us our first official look at the Amazonian women of Wonder Woman.
Here’s a blurb from EW’s article which explains who the actresses are playing.
She will need some help getting there, though. Preparing her for a world of men are three regal women: Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Gladiator’s Connie Nielsen), and her two military aunts — General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (Force Majeure’s Lisa Loven Kongsli). This trio of immortals is responsible for both raising and training Diana — the only child on this estrogen heavy isle — but they don’t always agree. Hippolyta, a revolutionary leader, longs to shelter her beloved daughter from the outside world, but Antiope, the Amazon responsible for Diana’s training, wants to prepare her. “She is the only child they raised together,” says Jenkins, calling from outside London, where she is deep into the film’s production. “And their love for her manifests in a different way for each of them.”
They look completely badass to me and we’ve been championing director Patty Jenkins for years to make a comic book film and Wonder Woman seems to be the one she was meant to make.
