It’s official: Gal Gadot’s first solo outing as Wonder Woman is now a wrap, as the actress jumps on social media to thank the team behind it.

The shoot has lasted six months, with Gadot calling it on Instagram “such an amazing, exciting, dreamy, happy and fascinating experience I will cherish it forever. Thank you to everyone who was involved, our amazing cast, crew and phenomenal director.”

No rest for Wonder Woman though, as the star now heads to London, where Justice League: Part One is currently shooting. Another confirmation from the set is that actress/martial artist/stunt woman Mayling Ng will be playing Orana in the film.

Ng too took to Instagram to show off a very beaten and bruised body, hinting here arrival in the DC Universe thanks to her choice of shirt:

In some continuities Orana takes the title of Wonder Woman from Diana in battle; whether or not this will play out in the film isn’t known at this time, but from that pic it certainly looks like she’s been giving someone a thrashing.

Wonder Woman is scheduled for release on the 2nd June, 2017.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
