EXT. PARADISE ISLAND - BEACH - HOT DAY
MYSTERIOUS FIGURE P.O.V - STEVE TREVOR, 30 ́s, handsome, is lying on a beautiful beach, with sand that sparkles around the frame of his head like crystals. He is wearing a space suit without the helmet. He appears dazed, confused, not sure where he is. We are standing above him, looking at him with curiosity.
Suddenly he sees us, he looks up at us as if he's just seen the most sublime sight of his life.

INT.MISTY CAVE - UNKNOWN
We are inside a misty mysterious cave. We See a UNKNOWN FEMALE FIGURE from the back, dressed in ancient greek soldiers garb, also wearing a helmet. She is hesitantly standing on greyish black sand which is the shore for a lake of molten fire, steaming, bubbling, boiling. As the flames rise in a wave, she cautiously steps away from the precipice.
In the sea of lava, thousands of demonic creatures splash in and out of the lake, as if suffering some horrid torture.

EXT. PARADISE ISLAND - RAIN FORREST - SUMMER DAY
We see an UNKNOWN GIRL, no more than age 10, wearing an Ancient Greek Chiton. She's in a tropical rain forest. She begins to run up hill through rugged terrain, at quite remarkable speeds. She runs at least as fast as a fully grown male sprinter, not seeming to tire, while athletically leaping over obstacles obstructing her way.
INTERCUT between the following scenes
EXT.PARADISE ISLAND - BEACH - LATE EVENING
Stormy evening. We watch a figure running from the distance. As she enters the frame, we realize it is QUEEN HIPPOLYTA - late Twenties, beautiful, regal features - running along the beach distressed. She falls to her knees, a flood of tears emerging from her eyes.
HERA--- HERA --- HERA!! Do you HEAR
MY CRIES HERA? --- You promised us eternal paradise; BUT ALL You've DONE IS CURSE THE AMAZONS.
EXT.PARADISE ISLAND - RAIN FORREST - SUMMER DAY
We are back to the unknown girl running in the rain forrest. She runs, and then leaps. She leaps high on to the branch of a strong tree. WE, look out at the world from her perspective. The tree hangs over the edge of a cliff, over looking one of Paradise Islands majestic beeches, with the sea just underneath her. In the distance you can make out the outline of a magnificent Kingdom. Close up, of the little girls cute but dirty face.
She stares with wild eyes out into the world. Awe, humility, and, wonder, saturating her expression.
EXT. PARADISE ISLAND - BEACH - LATE EVENING
Back to the scene with QUEEN HIPPOLYTA on the beach: As she kneels, a woman ́s silhouette emerges in the distance, as if out of nothing. She ́s walking toward her, but the image is almost unreal or an apperition.
Closer now: the woman stands before Hippolyta, her gown glows, an aura seems to cover her whole body. The himation gown she wears flows along the currents of the wind, like an angel. She kneels before Hippolyta, lifting her head, and from Hippolyta ́s look of astonishment, we know that it is the Goddess HERA. HERA wipes the tears from her eyes, embracing her, and then kissing Hippolyta softly upon the lips. She then seems to be fading away, but as she does, Hera looks down at Hippolyta ́s stomach, pressing her hand against it. Hippolyta looks down holding Hera ́s hand upon her stomach. Hera smiles as she ́s disappears into the night like a Mirage. Hippolyta, just about holds back tears of joy.
EXT.PARADISE ISLAND - RAIN FORREST - SUMMER DAY
Closeup: THE LITTLE GIRL, still perching upon the branch.
Her P.O.V: She looks into the distance and sees a whale leap up from the sea. She looks down to the sea, which is several feet beneath her.
Closeup: She smiles naughtily, before doing a tremendous acrobatic somersault, leaping from the branch, into the sea.
INT.HIPPOLYTA ́S PALACE - BEDROOM - NIGHT
We are in the large bedroom of Queen Hippolyta. Hippolyta sits on a cushioned, ornamented davenport, which is just in front of her large equally lavish bed. The unknown little girl sits on top of her, hugging her, but now cleaned up, dressed in imperial garments fitting of a princess. Palace aids, walk around the room doing bits and pieces. The little girl who is hugging Hippolyta looks up at her.
What ́s out there mother? what is
outside Themyscira --- in Mans World?
Her mother looks down on her, deeply concerned about her question.
Princess Diana, you must not labor
your mind with such trifles. (Said in a dismissive
tone, as if the question were the mere result, of the foolish curiosity of a Childs undisciplined mind)
We now know the little girl is Diana. The scene ends with Close-Up of Hippolyta with an expression of motherly concern, kissing Diana upon her brow.

EXT.PARADISE ISLAND - NIGHT
Establishing shot. Caves at night, lightning and storm.
INT.UNKNOWN DUNGEON - STORMY NIGHT - CONTINUOUS
A dark, filthy, dungeon. We stand before a prison door peering into the silent room. A prisoner sits in the shadows. He gets up, turning his attention to us, as he approaches, we see his eyes are glowing a wild, exuberant, blood red.
We mustn't try to stop her. For her
EXT.EASTERN EUROPE - WAR ZONE - DAY
NOTE: We finally see Diana Princess of Themyscira in full battle gear. She is in an Armor plated, version of The New 52 costume.
Was forged from iron and gold by
the Gods themselves.
We are in a war zone some where in Eastern Europe. Wonder Woman is being attacked by two armed soldiers, on either side of her carrying Riffles. They have by now closed in on her. Soldier 1, takes a shot.
Wonder Woman dodges the shot, with amazing speed, in the mean time grabbing the gun from the soldier, swiftly round house kicking him in the solar plexus, sending him hurtling into a nearby tank, denting it on impact. Meanwhile, she again turns throwing the rifle she just grabbed at soldier 2, rocketing at such velocity and accuracy, it knocks him clear off his feet.
She cannot resist. For in her noble
spirit, her strength --- Sharp cut to,
INT.EASTERN EUROPE - UNKNOWN HOUSE - WAR ZONE - DAY
Wonder Woman is in a room of house that is clearly being shot at. She is behind a table. Bullets flying over her head. In her arms is a woman, who in turn holds her young fearful child.
HIPPOLYTA (V.O.) And in her hearts capacity for
good, she will try to save them.
Close up - We see in Wonder Woman ́s eyes a damining rage. Sharp cut to,
INT.SUBTERRANIAN MILITARY BASE - UNKNOWN
In an expansive IMAX shot, The Camera pans across the following scene from left to right.
We are in a a huge underground US Military Installation. Massive machinery, and high tech computers, serve as work stations for scientific personnel busying themselves with various activities. As we scan the scene we stop as we see 3 stationary shuttle like vehicles laying dormant, in front of what appears to be an opening portal or eye of a wormhole. A path way leads from the shuttles to the portal, which pulsates, opening like a flower in spring. It is like nothing, we've ever seen, simply unimaginable.
EXT.PARADISE ISLAND - TEMPLE OF APHRODITE - EARLY EVENING
In an expansive IMAX shot, The Camera pans across the following scene from right to left.
An Ancient Kingdom. Massive Golden Temples, Statues of Warrior Women, Arcehers, The Gods, reach high into the heavens like skyscrapers. The city is truly breathtaking. The city is a cross between an Ancient Greek city state - Athens in particular - and a highly advanced technological utopia.
Thousands of Amazonian women, stand on either side of a road, that is Roman in scale, leading up to a large alter, with a stairway partitioning its cheering crowds and the Roman Road between them. Queen Hippolyta is standing at the top of the stairway, in a dutiful manner. She her self stands in front of two giant statues of Goddesses, one on either side of her, and they are both holding in their hand, either end of a circular technological apperatus. At it's centre is the same wormhole or doorway, we saw in the previous scene.
On the road itself rides a carriage, pulled by two fine muscular white horses, one with a unicorns horn. In the carriage itself, is a woman in warrior garments and helmet, with Steve Trevor holding on beside her. They ride approaching the alter.
She will venture to their shores ---

EXT. GATEWAY CITY USA (FICTIONAL DC COMICS LOCATION) - LAKE - EARLY EVENING
Wonder Woman is walking on a lake, in full battle gear, with a sword in hand, lightly stepping on the water, with controlled grace.
HIPPOLYTA (V.O.) Hoping to be a beacon of light,
only to be shrouded by their darkness.
She waves her sword, with one hand, swinging it quite skillfully. Before seemingly returning it to a sheath. Only her uniform has no such sheath, and the sword simply disappears into thin air.
EXT.GATEWAY CITY USA - DOWN TOWN - LATE AFTERNOON ESTABLISHING SHOT.
We are in downtown, Gateway City. Skyscrapers, stand high above us. But the streets have been decimated by some large scale attack.
A missile flies into a building; creating massive destruction on impact.
Bystanders below, run, attempting to find shelter and evade the falling rubble.
And amidst chaos, she will try to
be their calm.
However futile her mission, she will struggle on, in their abyss.
Wonder Woman, is being shot at, she lifts a car that is in front of her - as if it were a paper weight - so as to block the bullets.
But it will be to no avail, to try
and prevent her journey; for even with the divine wisdom bestowed upon her, still, in her soul stirs the folly of youth.
Wonder Woman hides behind the vehicle, bullets fly all around her. You can see she ́s been injured. Blood on her arm, her body blackened from the soot of an explosion.
WONDER WOMAN Hera give me strength.
She then gets up to confront her attackers, as the bullets cease firing. From her P.O.V: We see an oncoming army, consisting of men with hi-tech weapons, and, what appear to be, an army of the living dead, in warriors garb, equally armed to the teeth.
You only see a flash of this, so you are actually unsure if you even saw what you just did.
(O.S.)The epic sound-track, begins to quiet down.
EXT.WASHINGTON DC - STEPS OF LINCOLN MEMORIAL - EARLY EVENING
The president of the United States, stands behind a podium. He is addressing a large crowd of seeming concerned Americans.
My fellow Americans --- we are
entering a new age; an age we must not fear, but embrace. We have seen things, both menacing and distressing, that seem right now, beyond our reach or comprehension. ---But there is no mystery in the world to big for the human mind to unravel. We will persevere. But we must be steadfast in what seem dark times, steadfast in our resolve, steadfast as an age of Wonders dawns upon us.
Sound track stops. Post credit scene
EXT.GATEWAY CITY - SHOPPING DISTRICT - AFTERNOON
