The "Wonder Woman" solo movie is official! Warner Bros has announced the initiation of filming along with the full cast and first look of Gal Gadot as Diana Prince in the film.

IGN has reported that principal photography will begin in the UK and will subsequently take place in several locations in France and Italy.

According to the website, besides Gadot, other actors who have joined the cast are Chris Pine as Captain Steve Trevor, Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (Harry Potter movies), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting), Saïd Taghmaoui (G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In, Van Helsing) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead, UK's The Office).

IGN has also said Wright may play the role originally offered to Nicole Kidman, which she refused. Similarly, Huston will play the role rumoured to have been offered to Sean Bean initially. However, there is no confirmation yet either from the actor or the production house.

The movie is being produced by "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" director Zack Snyder along with Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder. Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven will be serving as executive producers.

The creative team also consists of Matthew Jensen as director of photography (Chronicle, Fantastic Four, Game of Thrones), Aline Bonetto as production designer (Pan), Martin Walsh as editor (V for Vendetta) and Academy Award-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (The Dark Knight trilogy).

The "Wonder Woman" standalone movie will be the second in DC cinematic universe after "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". The film will continue the story and develop the plot to build for the upcoming "Justice League" movie that will see various DC comic characters coming together.

Wonder Woman will make her big screen debut in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".
