Gal Gadot Wields the ‘God-Killer’ Sword in New Wonder Woman Image
An image from next year’s Wonder Woman has been released showing the titular heroine lifting the mythical “god-killer” sword in a characteristically epic manner.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Wonder Woman, aka Princess Diana, obtains the celestial-slaying sword by disobeying her mother Queen Hippolyta and breaking into the all-female island of Themyscira’s heavily guarded armory. This rebellious act is done in the name of helping a desperate outside world in the throes of the first World War.

“This is her moment,” says the film’s director Patty Jenkins. “She’s heard all the terrible things about man’s land. But she’s also heard that mankind is in need and under duress. This is her great moment to make the decision to be the one to try and save them.”
A “god-killer” blade is an intriguing reveal, as Wonder Woman has gone up against several deities in the comics, namely Ares, the god of war. His presence would be a perfect fit for the World War I setting and it would be interesting to see how he’d fit into a story like this. Wonder Woman, portrayed by Gal Gadot, first made her on-screen appearance in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. This film marked the character’s first big-screen appearance and quickly established the Amazon Princess as a scene-stealer.
I guess we’ll find out who Wonder Woman ultimately beats up on June 2, 2017.
