Shortly after leaving Themyscira, Diana joins Steve Trevor in the trenches as they make an effort to stop General Ludendorff (Danny Huston) and Dr. Isabel Maru’s (Elena Anaya) impending chemical attack. The only issue is that they somehow have to cross No Man’s Land — a large, desolate stretch of land between them and the enemy encampment with next to no cover — without being blown to bits. Bravely, Diana emerges from the trench and walks across the battlefield with ease, allowing her allies to advance.
The image of Wonder Woman pushing forward against enemy bombardment remains one of the strongest images to grace the DCEU. As it turns out, we all have director Patty Jenkins to thank for the scene ending up in the final cut of the film. As she revealed to Fandango in May of 2017, she had to fight to keep it because it “made the least sense to other people going in.” According to her, many complained that her fending off bullets wasn’t very intriguing, which downplays the overall symbolism of the sequence.
“I take deep gratification that, ultimately, all of us together were able to turn it into that scene. It was always the most important scene in the movie to me in that it is the birth of Wonder Woman,” Jenkins concludes, and it’s safe to say that her dedication to the scene paid off. Wonder Woman’s badass march across No Man’s Land is and forever will be one of the coolest moments in comic book movie history. The film and the DCEU at large wouldn’t be the same without it.
