A new poster has been revealed for the Chinese release of DC’s Wonder Woman, and it is certainly very different from the US version. It’s got an awesome anime-inspired look, and was tweeted by DC artist Nicola Scott. Check it out below:

This isn’t the first Hollywood movie this year to get a supercool makeover for the Asian market. In February, a Japanese monster movie-inspired poster for Kong: Skull Island was released.
The new Wonder Woman poster follows a trailer that was released earlier this month. The movie stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, and Connie Nielsen and is directed by Patty Jenkins.
Early box office predictions suggest that movie will have a solid opening weekend, with a take of at least $65 million in its first three days. While this is well below the openings for previous DC movies Suicide Squad ($133 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million), it is in line with the debut for such Marvel films as Captain America: The First Avenger and Ant-Man.
Wonder Woman will be the first female-fronted superhero movie from either studio, and while Wonder Woman is an iconic figure, the character only appeared briefly in Dawn of Justice and does not necessarily have the built-in box office appeal of Batman or Superman as yet.
The film hits theaters on June 2. For lots more on Wonder Woman, check out GameSpot’s roundup feature, “Everything We Know About The Wonder Woman Movie.”
