Gadot was decked out in period dress with a navy coat and burgundy blouse while she was filming a scene in London’s Trafalgar Square, recreating the celebration of Armistice Day following the culmination of World War One. Extras outfitted in costumes from the 1920s milled about the scene, which featured vintage cars, trucks and canons. The elaborate staging shut down the bustling square in London for five hours.
Also on the set of the DC Comics film were Lucy Davis and Saïd Taghmaoui.

In the first clips of Wonder Woman that were released last month, Gadot appears as Amazon-in-training Princess Diana of Themyscira, in action as the Wonder Woman superhero, and undercover as ordinary civilian Diana Prince. Though no dialogue appeared in the teaser, interviews with those involved in the film have given an idea of what it will be about.
“Wonder Woman’s like one of the greatest superheroes out there, but people don’t know her origins like they know Superman’s origin and Batman’s origin,” Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Geoff Johns said during The CW’s Dawn of the Justice League special. “So, what we want to do in the film is really tell people who she is, where she comes from and why she does what she does. We’ve never seen it on film before.”
Chris Pine, who plays Gadot’s love interest in the superhero epic, believes that the Wonder Woman movie will be an impactful bit of filmmaking. Pine said of the film, “Telling a story like this now is pivotal and important. The story of a very powerful woman.”
Wonder Woman is slated to hit theaters June 23, 2017.
