DC Comics superfans got a sneak peek at the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 film during the CinemaCon festival in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

At the Warner Bros. presentation during the convention this week, the studio showed a clip from the movie, which is slated to premiere on June 5, 2020. According to Variety, the scene showed off “Gal Gadot’s Princess Diana at the height of her abilities.”

Deadline reported that both Gadot and director Patty Jenkins spoke to fans in a video message.

Jenkins said the upcoming film has a storyline “we are very excited about. Diana is now at her full powers,” according to Deadline. And Gadot said the wild success of the first film “makes me want to work harder to do something even more special.”

According to Variety, the preview clip showed Gadot with co-stars Chris Pine (Steve Trevor) and Kristen Wiig, who plays her nemesis Cheetah, as well as leaping through a suburban mall and lassoing bad guys.

Wonder Woman 1984 will be the fourth film in which Gadot portrays the superheroine, after 2016’s Batman v. Superman and 2017’s Wonder Woman and Justice League.
