Entertainment Weekly has released new Wonder Woman concept art from their upcoming summer movie preview.

We see Wonder Woman on a battlefield, removing her cloak, getting ready to become a hero for the first time. “It’s a very powerful moment,” Gadot says. “We have a character committing to her true self, doing what she believes needs to be done.”

DC Films boss Geoff Johns compared this battle scene to Richard Donner’s Superman. “[This scene] reminds me of when Superman caught Lois and caught the helicopter [in the 1978 movie],” he said. “But this one is even more visceral.”

EW says that this scene comes in about halfway through the movie. They also published a new synopsis:

Diana is thrust toward her destiny after American intelligence officer Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes near her island, pursued by the German army. Trevor has discovered that German general Erich Ludendorff (Danny Huston) has plans to release a chemical super weapon, potentially killing millions. Diana wants to help — convinced that this evil could only be the work of Ares, the God of War.

Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 2nd.
