With the film now less than two months away from release, it's no surprise that we've seen quite a bit of footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at this point. What is a little unexpected is that Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman has yet to speak in any of the released footage. We do get to see a little more of her in the new international trailer though, which shows her unleashing her powers and flying... on a plane (sorry!).
Although Wonder Woman may not feature much in Batman v Superman, director Zack Snyder has described her inclusion as being "incredibly organic" while also revealing that this iteration of the character is 5000 years old. Speaking with Empire Magazine, he noted that "The whole concept came of, 'Let's not save anything. Let's try it all.' Then Wonder Woman's entrance made us realise we were much closer to the Justice League than we thought. We realised we were one movie away."
Aside from a brief second or two of Wonder Woman in civilian garb (at the 1:03 mark in case you missed it), the trailer itself offers very little new footage. It does however serve to reinforce what the film's main focus will be - the battle between its two titular superheroes. Thankfully, we don't have long to wait to find out who comes out on top.
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Diane Lane, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Laurence Fishburne and Amy Adams, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will arrive in UK and US cinemas on March 25, 2016.
