Filming has begun on the Wonder Woman solo movie, and star Gal Gadot recently posted the very first photo from the upcoming film featuring DC Comics’ famous superheroine.

The photo features a cloaked Gadot in the role of Diana Prince, the powerful heroine better known as Wonder Woman. Gadot posted the photo on Twitter over the weekend with the caption, “Almost 75 years in the making… #WonderWoman is underway.”

Directed by Monster and The Killing director Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gadot as the eponymous heroine, but much of the film’s plot remains a tightly guarded secret at this point. Early reports suggested that the film could be a prequel-style origin story set in Wonder Woman’s early years as a superhero.

Along with Gadot as Wonder Woman, the film’s supporting cast includes Star Trek actor Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor, as well as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and House of Cards actress Robin Wright, Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).

Earlier this month, an unconfirmed report suggested that Nicole Kidman was also in talks for a featured role in the film — possibly that of the lead villain (rumored to be the sorceress Circe) or Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta.

Gadot will make her big-screen debut as Wonder Woman in next year’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice before headlining her own solo film the following year. Filming on Wonder Woman is scheduled to occur over the next few months in the U.K., France, and Italy.

Wonder Woman will hit theaters June 23, 2017. It will be followed a few months later by Justice League Part One, the first installment of a two-part team-up movie.

Like The Mandalorian? Then you must read these Star Wars bounty hunter books
Boba Fett in action in cover art for War of the Bounty Hunters.

Longtime fans will surely be hoping that Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise will capitalize on the strong reception of Andor as The Mandalorian -- Disney+'s flagship series -- finally makes its return early next month with season 3. The latter series gave a refreshing look at the vast Star Wars universe through the lens of a gritty amalgamation of the sci-fi and Western genres.

Din Djarin and Grogu's one-off and overarching bounty hunter-themed adventures show the creativity Star Wars is capable of, but the franchise has similarly engaging exploits off the screen as well. From comic books to novels, bounty hunters and the crime syndicates of the galaxy make for some worthwhile side stories sure to satisfy invested fans of the space opera. From Legends tales from the likes of Dark Horse Comics to mainline Disney-era canon under Marvel Comics, there are several fitting bounty hunter books to prepare for The Mandalorian season 3.

I’m a lifelong Marvel fan. After Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, I’m done with the MCU
Multiple Ant-Mans look confused in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

This past weekend, the 31st (!) Marvel movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, was released to thunderous indifference. While the film grossed over $100 million at the box office, the critical and audience response has been tepid. It's the lowest-ranking Marvel film on Rotten Tomatoes and didn't achieve the "A" Cinemascore that was almost customary with every MCU release prior to the pandemic.

Marvel fans have been here before. Phase Four, which started with Black Widow and ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, was a notoriously rocky period when the broken cogs began to show in Marvel's well-oiled machine. Kevin Feige, the grand architect behind Disney's lucrative product line, er, movie division, recognized this and promised that Phase 5, which would start with the third Ant-Man film, would offer a clarity of purpose and, everyone hoped, a restoration of the quality and enthusiasm seen in past Marvel movies. What everyone got instead was an overstuffed CGI fest that was more intent on vaguely teasing future movies and promoting Disney+ content than telling an entertaining story.
