The release date of ‘Wonder Woman.'

“Wonder Woman” is scheduled to be released in the US on June 2, 2017. It is intended to be the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe. In addition to Gal Gadot and Robin Wright, the film features Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Danny Huston, Ewen Bremner, Said Taghmaoui, Lucy Davis, and Eugene Brave Rock. Lisa Loven Kongsli plays Menalippe, Antiope's lieutenant.

In March 2007, Silver Pictures and Warner Bros. announced that Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) would serve as a director and screenplay writer for “Wonder Woman,” with a reported salary of $3.1 million. But he was busy with the shooting of “Serenity” and could not give proper time.

For the role of Diana, Priyanka Chopra, Nicole Kidman, Morena Baccarin, Charisma Carpenter, and Selena Gomez were auditioned, but the filmmaker chose Gal Gadot due to her impressive facial features and strong performance in the previous films.
