Two films scheduled for 2017 release include a film about Wonder Woman and another featuring the Justice League.
On June 2, 2017, Wonder Woman comes to the theater. The film stars Gal Gadot as Princess Diana of Themyscira. She arrives in Man’s World after Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, crash-lands on Themyscira. Patty Jenkins directs the film.
Justice League, scheduled for release on November 17, 2017, was originally slated to be a two-part movie. However, Warner Bros. decided in the summer of 2016 to opt for a single film after reading mixed reviews on the Batman v Superman movie. In Justice League, Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne gains inspiration from the sacrifice of Henry Cavill’s Superman. Bruce begins building the Justice League with help from Diana Price, also known as Wonder Woman.
