Monday morning we were invited to come by and check out the newest addition to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Burbank. Patty Jenkins blockbuster film which cemented the notion that a woman in top billing of a big summer action film could do business, Wonder Woman, joins the various iconic memorabilia from comics, film, and television on display in the Wonder Woman exhibit as part of DC Universe: The Exhibit.
The studio brought together some of the film’s technical and talent support to kick things off. The exhibit was unveiled by Lucy Davis (Etta), Eugene Brave Rock (The Chief), Samantha Jo (Euboea), Caitlin Dechelle (Stunt Double to Gal Gadot), and Michaela Facchinello (Stunt Double to Robin Wright). In a brief opening Q&A, the actors and stunt women talked about what the feel the significance of bringing these props for young girls to see and be inspired by is.
Once the doors opened to the display, we got a deeper look at just how extensive the exhibition is. If you’ve been by the DC Comics SDCC booth you’ve likely seen some of these costumes on display under glass but it takes on an entirely new dimension being up close and personal with them and feeling the war stories the leather that bounded the actresses playing the Amazons. Along with the Wonder Woman film pieces, much of her shared appearance in Batman v Superman is also on display, “the photograph”, her note from Bruce Wayne, and even the Batsuit. It’s kind of a full Justice League exhibit now.
For the first time, fans will be able to view a collection of authentic props and costumes worn by Gal Gadot (Diana Prince /Wonder Woman), including her Lasso of Hestia, armor, tiara, and her signature sword. Props and costumes worn and utilized by Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Danny Huston (General Ludendorff), Elena Anaya (Dr. Maru), Said Taghmaoui (Sameer), Ewen Bremner (Charlie), and Eugene Brave Rock (The Chief) will be on display for visitors to enjoy as well.
The Warner Bros. Studio Tour is open to the public, check out the studio’s website for times and availability.
