Gal Gadot battles bad guys epic trailer for 'Wonder Woman'

Finally, it's here and it looks amazing.

We've been waiting for a soul-stirring extended glimpse at the upcoming Wonder Woman, and it's arrived in the film's epic first trailer, which debuted over the weekend at San Diego Comic Con.

Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), the film finds Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, signing up to help stop World War I, after American fighter pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes on the shores of her all-female paradise Themyscira.  

From there, she's lasso-ing bad dudes across enemy front lines, kicking butt and taking names - maybe most of all that of Trevor, her condescending sidekick (and apparent love interest), whose casual second-class treatment of women isn't exactly what Wonder Woman is used to, nor eager to accept.

"I can't let you do this," Trevor tells her, in that classic all-knowing dudey action hero way.

"What I do is not up to you," Wonder Woman replies, in the trailer's perfect moment of zen.

If that doesn't get you fistpumping, nothing will. 

Between the Wonder Woman trailer and the near internet-breaking announcement that Oscar winner Brie Larson will be taking the lead as Carol Danvers in Marvel's own upcoming Captain Marvel (it's due out in 2019), Comic Con 2016's already offered a promising jolt of onscreen diversity to the usual bro-heavy superhero landscape.
