Wonder Woman's Gal Gadot slays in action-packed new Comic-Con trailer

Fans have had a sneak peek at the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, with the hotly-anticipated film's first official trailer debuting at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Warner Bros preview opens with the Amazonian heroine, played by Gal Gadot, leaning over Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) after he has washed up on a beach. "You're a man?" she asks him, and he replies: "Yeah, do I not look like one?"

The teaser moves on to the brunette warrior - alias Diana Prince - moving away from the lush island of Themyscira into modern civilization. Trevor asks: "Have you never met a man before? But what about your father?"

"I had no father. I was brought to life by Zeus," she replies.

After several action-packed battle sequences the footage closes with Wonder Woman meeting Trevor's secretary Etta Candy played by Lucy Davis, who was Dawn in the British version of sitcom The Office.

"What is a secretary?" Wonder Woman asks.

"I go where he tells me to go and I do what he tells me to do," Candy responds.

"Well where I'm from, that's called slavery," the Amazonian replies.

Warner was holding court in Comic-Con's Hall H in a two-hour slot, with Conan O'Brien as host, to pull back the curtain on its highly anticipated slate of both DC Comics movies and non-superhero offerings.

Gadot said at a publicity event for that film in March that she had never planned to be an actress and felt grateful to be playing a character her four-year-old daughter could look up to.

"I am so happy I'm going to be the one who's going to tell the Wonder Woman story," the 31-year-old former Miss Israel added.

"It's such an important story... But I also think it's so important for girls - and boys - to have a female, strong superhero to look up to."
