Suicide Squad may be adorning the cover of the new Empire but they aren’t the only DC superheroes within. Leading off the issue’s preview section is a new look at Wonder Woman, a Comic-Con standout thanks to its impressive new trailer. Take a closer look below at Gal Gadot’s time-travelling Diana Prince.

Gal Gadot in the trenches as Wonder Woman

Muddied and battle-worn, Gadot crouches amid the carnage of the Western Front. This iteration of the magical-lasso-whirling Amazon sees her plunged into the full-scale mayhem of the Great War, where she’s aiding Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) in a mission that will prove vital to mankind’s very future.

The movie will show how the character, a warrior princess of the Amazons (who is more than 5000 years old), has her first fateful meeting with a human man (Pine's Trevor) and the impact it has on her life, including the decision to largely stay away from us until she gets more involved with Batman and Superman's battle against evil. “She’s seen it all,” Gadot told Empire in January. “She has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”

With Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Danny Huston and Ewen Bremner also in the film and Patty Jenkins directing, Wonder Woman will be out in the UK on June 2, 2017.
