A new "#Wonder Woman" trailer debuts tomorrow. A pre-trailer teaser came out today, and it's got the goods. The new teaser shows #Diana, AKA Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), undergoing intense Amazonian training with her aunt, General Antiope (Robin Wright).

To the disobedience of her mother, the princess begins her training early. The initial training causes Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielson) to demand that Antiope makes Diana the greatest Amazonian warrior ever to live. To Antiope's surprise, Diana surpasses her aunt earlier than she anticipated.

Wonder Woman's abilities

Wonder Woman has always been a powerhouse. In "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" she had several scenes where she alone was easily handling Doomsday.

The comics have always held Diana as the most powerful of the Amazons, with or without a sword. She is enchanted with heightened human abilities such as superhuman strength, speed, and reflexes, each given to her by different Gods and Goddesses.

In the teaser, we see Diana's Bracelets of Submission in action, deflecting Antiope's attack with ease. The bracelets, forged with the remnants of Zeus' legendary Aegis shield, can deflect any attack. When struck together, they are capable of channeling Zeus' energy, which is what we see in the trailer.

Which powers will be in 'Wonder Woman?'

When it comes to origin stories, it's common for cinematic adaptions to add or under examine abilities. The question with the film is this; what will this adaption bring to the table? Is there going to be a lot of Lasso of Truth? Will the sword overshadow other weapons or abilities at her disposal? It's hard to tell what they'll use because the Amazonian warrior is so powerful.

With a little help, she could stop World War I.

The Lasso of Truth hasn't had a lot of screen time and, in DC's Comics, it's one of her primary weapons. Will she rope up a baddie and force the truth like her comic counterpart?

A new trailer for the film will premiere tomorrow on Nickelodeon. "Wonder Woman" hits theaters June 2.
