Wonder Woman

I would like to watch Wonder Woman. It is based on the DC Comics character of the same name, and is the fourth installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman with Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, and Elena Anaya in supporting roles.

Set in 1918, the film tells the story of Princess Diana, who grows up on the Amazon island of Themyscira. home to the Amazon race of warrior women created by the gods of Mount Olympus to protect humankind. However, Ares, the god of war, slew all his fellow gods, but his father, Zeus, struck him down. Before succumbing to his injuries, Zeus left the Amazons a weapon capable of killing his renegade son: the “Godkiller”, presented as a ceremonial sword. Queen Hippolyta, Diana’s mother, believes that Ares will never return and forbids Diana from training as a warrior, but Diana begins training in secret.

As a young woman in 1918, Diana rescues American pilot Captain Steve Trevor (Pine) after his plane crashes off the coast of Themyscira. he tells her about the ongoing World War. The island is soon invaded by the landing party of a German cruiser pursuing Steve. The Amazons engage and kill all of the German sailors, but Antiope dies. Steve reveals that “The War to End All Wars” is raging in the outside world, and that he is an Allied spy. He has stolen a notebook with valuable information from the Spanish chief chemist Isabel Maru, who is attempting to engineer a deadlier form of mustard gas under the orders of General Erich Ludendorff from a weapons facility in the Ottoman Empire. Believing Ares is responsible for the war, Diana arms herself with the sword and leaves Themyscira with Steve to find and destroy Ares.

When the two arrive in London, they deliver Maru’s notebook to the Supreme War Council, including Sir Patrick Morgan, who is trying to negotiate an armistice with Germany. Diana translates Maru’s notes and reveals that the Germans plan to release the deadly gas at the warfront. So Steve, with secret funding from Sir Patrick, recruits spy Sameer, marksman Charlie, and smuggler Chief to help prevent the gas from being released. Diana rallies the Allied Forces on the Western Front in Belgium,

Steve and Diana infiltrate a gala held at the nearby German High Command intending to locate the gas and destroy it, and kill Ludendorff, however Ludendorff unleashes the gas killing many so Diana pursues Him to a base where the gas is being loaded into a bomber aircraft bound for London. Diana discovers Ares whereabouts and confronts him. After destroying the ceremonial sword, Ares tells Diana she is the true “Godkiller”, and tries to persuade her to help him destroy humankind to restore paradise on Earth. Wonder Woman refuses and they have an epic show-down.
