Lower Halstow features in new Wonder Woman trailer

By Aodhan Gregory

The first trailer for the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Wonder Woman is finally here, featuring scenes shot in Lower Halstow.

Warner Bros is giving superhero fans a sneak peek of the film with the release of the first trailer.

The film’s creators hope the Israeli actress Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the heroine will excite moviegoers by depicting the important birth of a cultural feminist icon.

Shooting for the major movie took place in the Kent village last November with a 250-strong crew transforming the barge into a military style encampment to imitate the Belgian coast where a boat bearing the German flag was filmed sailing in from the River Medway.

Gadot, 30, who made her silver screen debut in the fourth Fast and the Furiousfilm, will be joined on screen by Star Trek actor Chris Pine, and House of Cards star Robin Wright.

The accompanying footage reveals little on Wonder Womanbut does show glimpses of the docks and the grounds of St Margaret of Antioch Church.

Stars from the production took an interest in the church while filming and were given a guided tour by 80-year-old villager Alan Swift.

Hollywood heart-throb Chris Pine was said to have taken an interest in its Roman tiles.

The scenes shot in the village were said to have depicted the First World War and draw on a loose connection to Florence Nightingale.

In the Wonder Woman comic books, the heroine meets her love interest Steve Trevor, played by Chris Pine, when he crash lands in his plane.

While nursing him back to health, the pair fall in love and she follows Trevor back to “Man’s World” to become a champion of peace as Wonder Woman.

It is thought that a similar story line may occur in the movie, though set in a different time period.

The film is due to be released in 2017.
