Wonder Woman was packed with action and inspiration, but could it have been heavier on the romance?
One intrepid video editor, Nelson Carvajal on Vimeo, has imagined what the movie – or at least its trailers – may have been like if the film were a romance instead of an action superhero movie. The trailer is specifically done in the style of Terrance Malick, the director of movies such as Song To Song, Knight of Cups, and To The Wonder.
You can check out the more romantic trailer for Wonder Woman – or, as Carvajal dubbed it, To The Wonder Woman – above.

Before she was Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, Diana meets an American pilot (Chris Pine) who tells her about the massive conflict that’s raging in the outside world. Convinced that she can stop the threat, Diana leaves her home for the first time. Fighting alongside men in a war to end all wars, she finally discovers her full powers and true destiny.
Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston for DC Comics. She made her first appearance in All Star Comics #8 in 1941 and has gone on to become a feminist icon and one of DC Comics’ most beloved and recognizable characters. Though she had a popular television series in the 1970s starring Lynda Carter, the Wonder Woman movie will be the character’s first time headlining a film.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins, from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg & Geoff Johns, story by Heinberg & Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs, and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ewen Bremner and David Thewlis.
