Wonder Woman is a formidable hero in the DCEU, but it looks like her might and power will be challenged by Steppenwolf like never before in Zack Snyder's Justice League. The showdown between the two powerhouses will be a visual treat for fans, and it's safe to say that it will look and feel different from its theatrical predecessor.

An extended look at Diana's discovery of Themyscira's warning was unveiled, and it provides a compelling way to reveal the heroine's fear of the threat that will arrive.

Meanwhile, the inclusion of various lines of dialogue in the trailer once again adds more hints on how the film will tackle Wonder Woman's part in the narrative. Snyder's way of presenting these quotes no doubt provides intrigue, but it is an effective tool in creating more hype for his version ahead of its debut.

While the DCEU future of Wonder Woman is bright due to the already-confirmed arrival of Wonder Woman 3 , Zack Snyder's Justice League presents a unique opportunity to showcase a different side of the hero, and it will be interesting to witness how it will all go down.
