The 6, 500-some fans who crowded Hall H at San Diego’s Comic-Con on Saturday got a glimpse of never-before-seen footage from the action-packed first trailer for “Wonder Woman, ” starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot, as well as the superhero all-star film “Justice League, ” in which Gadot also appears.

“Wonder Woman, ” directed by Patty Jenkins, highlights the romance and World War I-era adventure of Diana Prince’s origins. The movie comes out in June of 2017 and will be the first time the iconic superhero has had her own film in her 75-year history.

The cast of “Wonder Woman” discussed exploring the origins of the Amazonian warrior heroine, and bringing a strong female lead to the male-dominated superhero movie world.

“Wonder Woman has the heart of a human and the strength of a goddess and combination of the two is very powerful, ” Gadot said, seated alongside co-stars Chris Pine and Connie Neilsen, who plays her mother. Audiences first met Gadot’s Wonder Woman in “Batman v Superman” earlier this year.

According to Coming Soon Gadot said she was very popular where she grew up in Israel and that she was a household name along with Batman and Superman. “I remember always knowing she’s the most powerful female superhero, ” she said, calling her a ‘shero’.

”She recalled getting the call about her casting while she was sitting on a plane on the runway in Los Angeles. She said her agent got everyone in the office on the phone and told her. She said she screamed on the plane, but that they then told her she couldn’t tell anyone.

Gadot said that this is the story of a girl becoming a woman and Jenkins agreed saying it was a “classic coming-of-age story arc. she wants to save the world.” She said Wonder Woman is god coming to mankind, and “seeing what mankind is capable of. You come in wanting to save the world and to be great, but how do you learn to be a loving and powerful hero?”

“Knowing how many people care so much for this character … it was important to portray (her) in a way everyone can relate, ” Gadot added.

Wonder Woman will join forces in the “Justice League” film with Batman (Ben Affleck), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Superman (Henry Cavill), who, it was revealed Saturday, had survived the events that appeared to kill him in “Batman V Superman.”

Director Zack Snyder and the cast flew in from London to tease “Justice League, ” which is currently in production and not set to hit theaters until November 2017.

The lively “Justice League” footage highlights Bruce Wayne’s recruitment of what will be the Justice League team.

The lighter touch in the “Justice League” reel is likely a direct response to the widespread criticism of the self-seriousness of “Batman v Superman, ” and will be a pivotal moment for the studio in bringing together all of the personalities that they hope will also stand on their own, much like Marvel and Disney have done with “The Avengers.”

Warner Bros. has 10 films pegged to the interconnected universe over the next few years including “Suicide Squad, ” which comes out next month, “Wonder Woman, ” ”Aquaman, ” ”The Flash, ” and the stand alone “Batman” film, which Affleck is directing and starring in.
