It’s been a long time coming, but production on the new Wonder Woman movie is finally underway.
Gal Gadot, 30, and Chris Pine, 35, were both spotted filming on the banks of the Thames in Southend, Essex on Sunday.

Israeli actress Gal plays Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, while US actor Chris is set to star as Captain Steve Trevor, a United States Air Force pilot and Wonder Woman’s love interest in the film.

Alongside the two leading stars, Scottish actor Ewen Bremner was also spotted, in addition to 150 extras in full costume. Seen on location, Gal donned a long, slate-grey coat, which was cinched in at the waist with a tan leather belt. The styling consisted of brown lace-up boots and a wide-brimmed fedora hat, with a white shirt beneath.

With temperatures dropping to 12 degrees Celsius in Southend on Sunday, Gal wrapped up warm in a blue padded jacket and a pair of black woolly gloves. The timescale for the film has yet to be confirmed, but the costumes and location strongly back reports that it’s set in World War I. As previously reported by Heroic Hollywood, the first half of the film will take place during World War I while the second half of the film takes place during modern day.

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. released details as to who else will star in the film when it is released in 2017. These include Robin Wright, Harry Potter’s David Thewlis, Danny Huston as well as indie-darling Lena Anaya and The Office star Lucy Davis. Who they will play in the film is still being kept under wraps.

Getting Wonder Woman, even though she is a well-known character, to the big screen has been a long battle. Believe it or not, Gal’s portrayal in 2016’s Superman v. Batman alongside Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will be the character’s big screen debut. She was seen for the first time in the lead female role in the recently-released trailer for the film.

Since 1996, there have been many attempts to bring the character to the screen with Sandra Bullock even linked to the role. Another film was proposed in 2005 with Colbie Smulders mentioned before Christina Hendricks was thrown in the mix.

Wonder Woman is slated for a 23 June 2017 release in the US. A UK release date has yet to be confirmed.
