Wonder Woman BTS Photos Reveal More About Steve Trevor and the Amazons
Though Batman vs. Superman didn’t fare so well amongst fans and critics, Gal Gadot’s debut as DC’s Wonder Woman was widely considered as one of the best aspects of the film. Now, the world waits with abated breath as DC prepares for Gadot’s Wonder Woman standalone. So far the trailers for Wonder Woman have been pretty good, and some new behind-the-scenes photos of Gadot and director Patty Jenkins at work show some pretty good shots and interesting info as well.
In an interview with Studio Cine Live magazine (via lesto ilesheroiques), fans don’t just get to see new pictures of Wonder Woman in action behind the camera, they also get to learn more about the Amazons in Themyscira and more about Chris Pine’s character, Steve Trevor.
I play a pilot who works for the Allies and spies on the Germans without their knowledge. My character steals a notebook filled with scientific formulas in an Ottoman base, he steals a plane but is shot down in the open sea.
Aside from that, the magazine also reveals the real reason why Zeus created the Amazones, saying that Zeus had created them to help appease his son Ares, the God of War.
Why did Zeus create the Amazons? Because shaping man in his image made his son Ares, incidentally a god of war, mad with jealousy, he convinces the guys to confront each other. To restore harmony between them, Zeus created the Amazons that Ares reduced to slavery. The Amazons revolt with the help of Zeus, who will die of the hand of his son having had time to find Themyscira, their haven of peace where they will grow Diana. (…) Diana Prince becomes Wonder Woman by helping Steve Trevor and a squad of proud arm-in-law in search of one who wants to wipe humanity off the map with deadly gas.
Based on this information looks like Wonder Woman won’t just be going in between an actual war between men – the Amazon princess will also be hunting down a jealous god who wants to destroy all of humanity by using deadly gas. The film certainly sounds like a great leap forward from the underwhelming Batman vs Superman.

Wonder Woman is slated for release on the big screen on June 2 this year.
