Meet The Ladies Of Themyscira

As the birthplace of Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, there’s an aura of mystique surrounding the elusive isle, with today’s action shot revealing Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), standing shoulder to shoulder with General Antiope (House of Cards‘ Robin Wright) and Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli), her two military aunts. Weighing in on the Greek mythology underpinning the Wonder Woman universe, DC producer Charles Roven said that “Themyscira is influenced by the Greek but it’s clearly more then that. It’s a place that has the ‘you’ve never been to’ kind of feel. But once you’re there you’re not so sure you really want to leave so fast.” ​

When creating the opulent costumes glimpsed above, Patty Jenkins noted that authenticity was labelled as top priority for the design team, and there’s no question that the film’s heroines look the part. “To me, they shouldn’t be dressed in armor like men. It should be different. It should be authentic and realand appealing to women.”

Rounding out the star-studded cast list for Jenkins’ 2017 feature are Lucy Davis, Chris Pine, Danny Huston, Säid Taghmaoui, David Thewlis, Elena Anaya and Ewen Bremner. Patty Jenkins’ standalone Wonder Woman feature has been pegged to arrive on June 23, 2017
