Wonder Woman came to Hall H at Comic-Con with a brand new trailer and the three lead actors.

You've seen the new Wonder Woman trailer by now, right? Did you know it left star Gal Gadot shaking? We know that because she told us so.

Gadot, director Patty Jenkins and co-stars Chris Pine (Steve Trevor) and Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta) made a brief appearance onstage in Hall H to greet the Comic-Con audience and bathe in the rapturous response to the trailer, which emphasized Diana's entrance into the world of humankind as it is ravaged by World War I.

"It's an honor and privilege to porray this character," said Gadot. "She has the heart of a woman and the strength of a goddess."

Jenkins commented on why the 75-year-old Wonder Woman is a relevant character today. "It's someting we all believed in," the director said about taking on the movie. "The world needs love and forgiveness in such a huge way and we need heroes who are loving and forgiving and beautiful and kind. The message is be  a hero but be a beautuful, kind, loving person who's fighting for the right thing always."

Pine said that Steve Trevor has a "simple and wonderful dynamic with Diana," explaining, "She is a neophyte to the world of men and he has seen the worst of men and they meet from a place of hopefulness and hopelessness and he learns more about the potential positive future of mankind."

And with that, more or less, the Wonder Woman crew was shuffled off the stage, with Jenkins answering one fan's question by admitting that Diana's invisible jet does not appear in this film. Maybe next time though. If Wonder Woman is as good as it looks, we'll seeing a lot more of Diana of Themyscira for sure.

Wonder Woman is out in theaters June 7, 2017.

P.S. Here's the trailer again. It's worth it.
