                                              FINAL SHOOTING SCRIPT



    FADE IN:

1   EXT. THE EARTH (FROM SPACE)                                   1

    The EARTH as seen from space, perfect and seemingly
    serene.

                             DIANA (V.O.)
               I used to want to save the
               world...

    The distant SOUND OF TRIBAL DRUMS as we DESCEND planet-
    ward. CIRCLING the globe, CLOSER as the DRUMS BUILD.

                             DIANA (V.O.)
               This beautiful place.

    LOUDER DRUMS SOARING OVER oceans and continents.    CLOSER.

                             DIANA (V.O.)
               But the closer you get, the more
               you see the great darkness
               simmering within.

    Finally, we arrive in PARIS, FRANCE.


2   EXT. LOUVRE MUSEUM (PARIS) - EARLY MORNING                    2

    The LOUVRE MUSEUM -- with its 16th-Century architecture
    and its I.M. Pei glass-and-metal PYRAMIDS -- a place
    where the past and the future meet.

    DIANA PRINCE (30), antiquities expert, strides towards
    the Louvre, passing ARMED MILITARY at guard and alert.

                              DIANA (V.O.)
               And mankind?   That's another story
               altogether.

    A TRUCK pulls up, blocking our VIEW. ARMED SECURITY
    OFFICERS exit, unloading a CRATE from WAYNE ENTERPRISES
    addressed to DIANA PRINCE: CURATOR.


3   INT. LOUVRE MUSEUM - CORRIDOR - CONTINUOUS ACTION             3

    Diana walks down a HALLWAY with Assyrian bas-relief
    sculptures showing the good, and the bad, of humanity
    throughout history. She takes this in.

                             DIANA (V.O.)
               What one does faced with the
               truth, is more difficult than you
               think.
                                                             2.


4   INT. LOUVRE MUSEUM - DIANA'S OFFICE - MINUTES LATER           4

    The CRATE is delivered to Diana -- a wall-mounted
    COLLECTION OF ANCIENT WEAPONRY and GREEK ANTIQUITIES
    behind her.

    She eyes the WAYNE ENTERPRISES LOGO warily.

    Now alone at her desk, Diana opens the crate and looks
    inside, stunned.

    REVEAL THE ORIGINAL DAGUERREOTYPE of Diana from BvS --
    She's in her WONDER WOMAN ARMOR, surrounded by a band of
    SOLDIERS -- her friends -- from long ago.

                            DIANA (V.O.)
              I learned this the hard way. A
              long, long time ago. And now I
              will never be the same.

    She holds up the unsigned note accompanying the photo:

    "I found the original.   Maybe one day you'll tell me your
    story."

    She contemplates the faces of her friends long dead. Her
    eyes focus in on a man we'll soon know as STEVE TREVOR.
    She lingers on him, and then drifts to herself.

    Surrounded by HISTORY, Diana is overwhelmed by the memory
    of how this photo -- and Wonder Woman -- came to be --

                                                        CUT TO:


5   EXT. ARMY TRAINING GROUNDS (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY                 5

    THE PAST. Flashes of AMAZONS as they train for COMBAT on
    VARIOUS PLATEAUS extending from the edge of the CLIFFS of
    Themyscira.

    The Amazons train with WEAPONS, CLASHING and TESTING one
    another to their limits.

    DOZENS of ARMORED FEMALE WARRIORS -- AMAZONS -- engage in
    a dazzling array of training exercises. Every Amazon is
    an ageless beauty, between 30 and 50. They spar with BO
    STAVES, KNIVES, SWORDS. Practice ARCHERY, SPEAR
    THROWING, and LASSO from HORSEBACK. It's breathtaking --

    -- and YOUNG DIANA (8), Princess of Themyscira, watches
    it all from the edge of the field. Her eyes blaze with
    admiration.


                                                    (CONTINUED)
                                                             3.
5   CONTINUED:                                                    5

    ANTIOPE, the demanding GENERAL, oversees the Amazons.
    She wears a distinctive HELMET. At her side, the Amazon
    PHILIPPUS (African, regal).

    Diana fixates on one Amazon in particular, FIERCE and
    POWERFUL -- ARTEMIS. She sends her opponent to the
    GROUND, then SPINS to face another!

                            ANTIOPE
              Yes, the blow was strong, but
              Eliana's footwork betrayed her! A
              battle is like a river-crossing,
              every step must find a safe spot --

    Diana REHEARSES Artemis' moves, her young face set in a
    fierce scowl. She stabs at imaginary enemies, then looks
    up to find --

    Antiope STARING AT HER from across the grounds. She's
    caught! But instead of hiding -- she looks back to
    Antiope: I'm ready to fight! LET ME TRY!

    Antiope shakes her head but smiles -- Diana smiles back.

                            MNEMOSYNE (O.S.)
              Diana!

    Diana freezes, then BOLTS, before MNEMOSYNE (Diana's long-
    suffering tutor) can push through the crowd.

                            MNEMOSYNE
              Diana, I see you!


6   EXT. PUBLIC SQUARE (THEMYSCIRA) - CONTINUOUS ACTION           6

    Diana dashes through the crowded   marketplace, hoping to
    lose Mnemosyne, but every Amazon   whose path she crosses
    greets her with a smile or "Good   morning, Princess!"
    "Hello, Diana!" We realize that    Diana is the ONLY CHILD
    in this world.

    Diana races past a MURAL in the public square of QUEEN
    HIPPOLYTA, Diana's mother, triumphantly leading the
    Amazons.

                            MNEMOSYNE
              Diana, come back!

    A young AMAZON GUARD sees Diana coming, holds out her
    hand, STOP! Diana sees up a narrow stairway, grins -- an
    escape! She darts up it and back down another straight
    into a DEAD END.


                                                    (CONTINUED)
                                                          4.
6   CONTINUED:                                                  6

    Looking for a way out, she sees a long jump she just
    might make. There's a big fall, but Diana loves a
    challenge! She smiles mischievously, runs and LEAPS --

    -- but she's NOT GOING TO MAKE IT! Diana stretches out,
    her face falling as she realizes she's missed the jump,
    when --

    A hand grabs her wrist!


7   EXT. OTHER BRIDGE (THEMYSCIRA) - CONTINUOUS ACTION          7

    Dangling, Diana's pulled up to see: QUEEN HIPPOLYTA,
    ethereally beautiful, holding Diana easily by one arm as
    if Diana weighed nothing. She sits HORSEBACK, the
    mounted QUEEN'S GUARD behind her.

    Diana twists uneasily, smiling up at her mother.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
                   (breathless;
                    innocently)
              Hello, Mother. How are you today?

                            HIPPOLYTA
                   (sighs)
              How many times, Diana?

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
              I haven't actually counted. Quite
              a few?

                            HIPPOLYTA
                   (smiles; nods)
              Let's get you back to school
              before another tutor quits.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
              But, Mother... Don't you think
              it's time to start my training?

                             HIPPOLYTA
              Training?   You are training.

    Hippolyta softens, she loves her daughter more than
    anything, and PULLS DIANA into an embrace.

                            HIPPOLYTA
              Your mind is your most powerful
              weapon.
                   (beat)
              All battles begin here --
                   (taps Diana's head)
              -- before they end here --
                                                  (CONTINUED)
                                                           5.
7   CONTINUED:                                                    7

    Hippolyta motions to the world around them.    Diana
    frowns.

    Antiope RIDES to meet them, PHILIPPUS at her side.
    Antiope catches Diana's hopeful eyes.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
              Antiope thinks I'm ready.

                            HIPPOLYTA
                   (eyeing Antiope)
              Does she?

    Antiope approaches, Philippus respectfully keeping a
    distance.

                            ANTIOPE
              I could begin showing her some
              things.
                   (off Hippolyta's
                    silence)
              She should at least be able to
              defend herself.

                               HIPPOLYTA
              From whom?

                            ANTIOPE
              In the event of an invasion.

                            HIPPOLYTA
              Isn't that why I have an army at
              my command, General?

                            ANTIOPE
              I pray a day will never come where
              she has to fight, but you, the
              wisest of us all, know that one
              cannot deny their inner nature. A
              scorpion must sting, a wolf must
              hunt --

                            HIPPOLYTA
              She's a child. The only child on
              the island. Please, let her be
              so.

                               ANTIOPE
              But, sister --

                               YOUNG DIANA (8)
              But, Mother --



                                                    (CONTINUED)
                                                             6.
7   CONTINUED: (2)                                                7

                            HIPPOLYTA
                   (a final declaration)
              There will be no training.

    Hippolyta rides a crestfallen Diana away.   She looks back
    at Antiope, who nods at Diana pointedly.


8   INT. HIPPOLYTA'S PALACE - DIANA'S BEDCHAMBER - NIGHT          8

    Hippolyta attempts to tuck a wide-awake Diana (8) into
    bed.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
              What if I promised to be careful?

                            HIPPOLYTA
              It's time to sleep.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
              What if I didn't use a sword?

                            HIPPOLYTA
              Fighting doesn't make you a hero.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
                   (not listening)
              Just a shield then! No sharp
              edges!

                            HIPPOLYTA
              Diana... You are the most precious
              thing in this world to me. So
              much so, I sculpted you from clay
              and begged Zeus to give you life.

                            YOUNG DIANA (8)
                   (bored)
              You've told me that story.

    Hippolyta steps away and removes a GOLDEN-BOUND TRIPTYCH.

                            HIPPOLYTA
              Then I will tell you a new one.
              One of our people, and my days of
              battle...

    Diana's face LIGHTS UP, but Hippolyta raises her voice to
    correct her mood.

                            HIPPOLYTA
              So you will finally understand...
              why war is nothing to hope for.


                                                   (CONTINUED)
                                                              7.
8    CONTINUED:                                                    8

     Hippolyta slowly unfolds the large TRIPTYCH, revealing an
     elaborate PAINTING illustrating the history of the
     Amazons.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               Long ago, when time was new, and
               all of history was still a
               dream... the gods ruled the Earth,
               Zeus king among them.

     PUSH IN as the painting seems to come alive, subtly
     animates. Lightning and thunder herald the arrival of
     ZEUS atop Olympus, surrounded by the PANTHEON OF GODS.

                             HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               Zeus created beings over which the
               gods would rule -- beings born in
               his image -- fair and good, strong
               and passionate. Zeus called his
               creation... man.
                    (beat)
               And mankind was good.
     Another flash of lightning REVEALS MANKIND.

                             HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               But one grew envious of Zeus' love
               for mankind -- and sought to
               corrupt his creation.

     The painting seems to come alive again -- ARES, features
     hidden in shadow beneath a fearsome, HORNED HELMET.

                                HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               This was Ares.     The God of War.
     The sky splits open and fire rains from the heavens. Men
     take up arms, falling in line around Ares and becoming
     his ARMY.

                             HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               Ares poisoned men's hearts with
               jealousy and suspicion, vengeance
               and rage. He turned them against
               one another.

     The DYING and the DEAD litter a RAGING BATTLEFIELD.


8A   INT. HIPPOLYTA'S PALACE - DIANA'S BEDCHAMBER - NIGHT          8A

     BACK TO Young Diana (8), her eyes WIDE.

                             HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
               And war ravaged the Earth.
                                                                 8.


9       EXT. PALACE (THEMYSCIRA) - NIGHT                              9

        YOUNG DIANA (8) sneaks out of the palace, past her
        GUARDS. Pleased with herself, she runs off into the
        night!


10      EXT. SECRET TRAINING LOCATION 1 (THEMYSCIRA) - NIGHT          10

        Antiope and Young Diana (8), now dressed for training,
        raise their BO STAFFS. Antiope strikes, gently at first,
        but not for long. Diana works hard to defend herself.

13      EXT. BATTLEFIELD (PAINTING)                                   13

        APHRODITE, Goddess of Love, stands beside Zeus and the
        other gods at the shore of a turbulent sea, waving her
        hands as the ocean churns.

        From out of the sea rises: HIPPOLYTA, ANTIOPE, and
        countless other figures -- WARRIOR WOMEN.

                                HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
                  So the gods made us, the Amazons,
                  to influence men's hearts with
                  love and to restore peace to the
                  world.

        Standing behind Aphrodite on the shore, MEN watch the
        women approach in awe, lowering their weapons.

                                HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
                  For a brief time, there was peace,
                  even a unity among the world, as
                  the gods and man fought side-by-
                  side against a great evil.

        An ancient war is subtly depicted, but not lingered on.
        If one looks close you'll see: THREE ARMIES -- The gods,
        Amazons, and Atlanteans battling JACOB. Each army in
        possession of a LOTUS.

        ARES cleaves Jacob, then he looks to the LOTUS the humans
        have discarded. He reaches for it --

                                ANTIOPE (V.O.)
                  But it did not last.

        ARES' ARMY OF MEN swing a barrage of weapons at Hippolyta
        and the Amazons, led by the God of War himself.

                             ANTIOPE (V.O.)
               Ares refused to give up his hold
               on mankind. Tightening his grip,
               he turned them against us.

     ARES AND HIS ARMY OF MEN lead Hippolyta and the other
     Amazons out of a BURNING CITY in SHACKLES and CHAINS.

                             ANTIOPE (V.O.)
               When Zeus led the gods to our
               defense, Ares killed them, one-by-
               one...

     Ares grabs Apollo from behind, slitting his throat --
     elsewhere, he assassinates Aphrodite -- elsewhere, Hermes --

                             ANTIOPE (V.O.)
               .... until only Zeus himself
               remained.

     HIPPOLYTA breaks the chains between her bracelets!

                             ANTIOPE (V.O.)
               Your mother, the Amazon Queen, led
               a revolt that freed us all from
               enslavement.

     Hippolyta leads the Amazons in battle against Ares,
     swinging her sword, a feral CHEETAH fights at her side --


14   EXT. WOODS (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY                                 14

     Young Diana (8) mimics her mother in battle, thrusting
     her WOODEN SWORD as she runs.

                             HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
               While Zeus used the last of his
               power to stop Ares...


15   EXT. BATTLEFIELD (PAINTING)                                   15

     Ares and Zeus CLASH in the eye of a STORM, each at the
     edge of death. Zeus throws his last THUNDERBOLT, hitting
     Ares.

                             HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
               ... striking him such a blow, the
               God of War was forced to retreat.

     Ares staggers back, a large gash in his chest leaks
     VIOLENT, BLUE POWER! He's swallowed up by DARKNESS.

                             HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
               With Zeus' dying breath, he
               created this island to shield us
               from the outside world. Somewhere
               Ares could not find us.


16   EXT. SECRET TRAINING LOCATION 2 (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY          16

     Antiope attacks! Young Diana (8) tries to keep up -- and
     to Antiope's surprise and satisfaction -- she does!

                             ANTIOPE (V.O.)
               But in the event he did, Zeus left
               us a weapon, one powerful enough
               to kill a God... to destroy Ares
               before he could destroy mankind...
               and us... with an endless war.


17   EXT. SCENIC OVERLOOK (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY                     17

     Hippolyta and Young Diana (8) look across their island
     home.

     Hippolyta smiles, ending her story... But Diana looks out
     across the oceans, wondering if Ares is still out
     there...

                              HIPPOLYTA
               We give thanks to the gods for
               this paradise.

                             YOUNG DIANA (8)
               And the Godkiller?

     Hippolyta isn't sure what Diana is referring to...

                                HIPPOLYTA
               The Godkiller?

                             YOUNG DIANA (8)
               Yes. The weapon that can kill
               Ares if he ever finds us. May I
               see it, Mother?

     Hippolyta's conflicted by Diana's excitement.   A beat.
     Then she nods, Diana elated.
                                                            11.


18   EXT. ARMORY - DAY                                            18

     Hippolyta and Young Diana (8) ride their HORSES to the
     ARMORY, a heavily guarded keep at the top of Themyscira's
     hillside. The QUEEN'S GUARDS follow. Diana's eyes drift
     up at a HIGH TOWER with a single window.


19   INT. ARMORY - CONTINUOUS ACTION                              19

     Young Diana (8) follows Hippolyta down a torch-lit tunnel
     and into the open-air center. One high window.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               This is where we keep all the
               gifts the gods have given us.

     Diana's eyes drift past a dazzling array of items,
     including a glowing GOLDEN GIRDLE, LASSO, and at the
     center, an ornately-crafted SWORD. Diana gently touches
     the hilt of the sword, in awe.

                              YOUNG DIANA (8)
               The Godkiller... It's beautiful...

     Hippolyta watches her carefully.

                             YOUNG DIANA (8)
               Who would wield it?

                             HIPPOLYTA
               I pray there will never come a
               time when it is called to arms.
               But only the fiercest among us
               even could... And that is not you,
               Diana.
     She takes Diana's hand away from the sword.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               So you see, my daughter, you are
               safe. And it is nothing for you
               to concern yourself with.

     But Diana is determined to prove her mother wrong --


20   EXT. SECRET TRAINING LOCATION 3 (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY           20

     SWORDS clash! Young Diana (now 12) continues to train
     with Antiope -- more skilled, stronger -- but not yet the
     warrior she will one day be. As Antiope pushes her --

                             ANTIOPE
               You're doubting yourself.
                                                    (CONTINUED)

                             YOUNG DIANA (12)
                    (defiant)
               No, I'm not.

     Antiope swings, the swords clashing! Young Diana (12)
     loses her footing, falling to the ground --

                             ANTIOPE
               Yes, you are.
                    (beat)
               But you're stronger than you
               believe...

                             HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               Diana!

     Hippolyta rides towards them, her GUARDS follow.

     The Queen climbs down, furious.   She checks her daughter
     for injury.

                             YOUNG DIANA (12)
               Mother... I'm fine... I was just --

                             HIPPOLYTA
               Training.
                    (to Antiope)
               It seems I am not the revered
               queen I should be. Disobeyed,
               betrayed, by my own sister --

                              YOUNG DIANA (12)
               Mother!   It was me. I asked her
               to --

                             HIPPOLYTA
                    (to her Guards)
               Take her to the palace.

     Crestfallen, Young Diana (12) is led away by Hippolyta's
     guards. She locks eyes with Antiope as she leaves.

                             ANTIOPE
               You left me no choice, Hippolyta.
               You neglect your duty if she
               cannot fight.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You speak of a time that may never
               come. He may never return! He
               could have died of his wounds.

     Antiope raises her voice to meet Hippolyta's for the
     first time in three thousand years.

                You think I don't wish that were
                true?!
                     (beat)
                You feel it in your bones, just as
                I do. Ares is still alive... He
                is out there... and it's only a
                matter of time before he returns.

                              HIPPOLYTA
                The stronger Diana gets --

                              ANTIOPE
                Nobody wants this less than I. I
                love her as you do.
                     (beat)
                But this is the only way to truly
                protect her.

     Hippolyta's pained eyes look away, pause for a beat, and
     then return to meet Antiope's with a steely stare.

                              HIPPOLYTA
                She is to never know the truth
                about what she is and how she came
                to be.
                     (beat)
                You will train her harder than
                every Amazon before her.

                               ANTIOPE
                Hippolyta --

                               HIPPOLYTA
                Five times harder -- ten times
                harder.
                     (beat)
                You will train her until she is
                unconquerable.

     A beat.   Then Antiope nods.

                                                     SMASH CUT TO:


21   EXT. TRAINING GROUNDS (THEMYSCIRA) - DAY                        21

     An AMAZON rolls across the ground with a BOW AND ARROW,
     rising up and letting an ARROW fly! It's DIANA! She's
     now fully grown, striking and formidable, with a sly
     smile -- the arrow HITS the target DEAD CENTER and she
     moves on --

     Antiope nods to Diana to look across the audience of
     Amazons and up to the hillside -- where Hippolyta has
     arrived on HORSEBACK. Diana grins, drawing her sword.

     Diana moves THROUGH and OVER obstacles, where she faces
     off against one of ANTIOPE'S GUARDS (African), using her
     SHIELD, BRACELETS and SWORD -- then ARTEMIS joins. Diana
     now taking on TWO AMAZONS -- and excited for the
     challenge.

     Diana dispatches Antiope's guard.

     The Amazons' brawler -- Artemis -- bares her teeth and
     attacks with no mercy, striking Diana hard! Artemis is
     fierce, revered by the other Amazons.

     Diana blocks the next blow, then sends Artemis crashing
     to the muddy ground at the feet of the other Amazons!
     The Amazons step back from Artemis. Humiliated, Artemis
     scowls. Diana, grins --

     Then Antiope and Diana go into battle! Warriors in
     violent, graceful combat. Antiope feels her holding
     back.

                             ANTIOPE
               Come on, Diana. You're stronger
               than this.

     Diana attacks Antiope with strength previously unseen!
     The Amazons watch with awe. Even Hippolyta.

     Unrelenting, Diana strikes hard, AGAIN AND AGAIN, until
     she knocks Antiope's sword out of her hands! Cocky,
     Diana points the sword at Antiope, who holds up her hands
     in surrender, proud. Diana nods, lowering the sword --
     she's won.

     Diana turns to her mother, looking for her approval but --

     -- WHAM! Out of nowhere, Antiope sends Diana to the
     ground with a BRUTAL BLOW! Not so fun anymore. Diana
     takes a breath, recovering.

     Hippolyta watches from the hill --

                              HIPPOLYTA
                    (under her breath)
               Get up, Diana.

     Diana glances at Antiope -- it was a dirty move -- but
     Antiope faces off against Diana!

                              ANTIOPE
                NEVER let your guard down! Your
                opponents will have no honor.
                They will strike at you from
                behind! They will attack without
                provocation!

     Antiope knocks Diana's sword aside!

                              ANTIOPE
                Show me the Amazon you are!
                     (pushing Diana)
                Or was I wrong to put such faith
                in you?

     Pushed to her limit, Diana brings both arms up -- then
     SLAMS her bracelets together!

     BOOSH!   A FIELD OF ENERGY EMANATES FROM DIANA'S CORE.

     We get the sense that this is just the beginning of her
     true POWER. Still, it's powerful enough to knock Antiope
     off her feet. Diana stumbles back...

     Diana, amazed and elated, realizes that something
     unbelievable has happened. A tiny GOLDEN SPARK in her
     eye quickly fades.

     Diana's ecstatic, scared and confused.   She looks to her
     mother: Did you see that?

     But Hippolyta is worried about the implications of
     Diana's power -- and Diana mistakes it for judgment.

                              HIPPOLYTA
                What have you done?

     Diana looks to Antiope, blood streaming from a cut to the
     head. Diana rushes to her side.

                               DIANA
                I'm sorry --

     But Antiope holds up her hand --

                               ANTIOPE
                Stay back.

     Diana looks at the other Amazons, who all stare back in
     silence, even Artemis -- then back to her mother's
     forlorn face, filled with fear. Diana slowly takes a
     step away, feeling frightened, guilty, rejected --

     And Diana runs --

     A COLD WIND blows across the hill. Fear falls on
     Hippolyta's face, taking in Diana's actions.


22   EXT. CLIFF (THEMYSCIRA) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                    22

     Diana races up a grassy embankment to a CLIFF overlooking
     the ocean.

     She looks down at her open palms, clenches them shut.

     What was that?   Then --

     An UNFAMILIAR SOUND: a strange gnawing BUZZ.     Diana
     looks upward, quickly spotting --

     A SHAPE on the horizon, moving closer. Something she has
     never seen before: A GERMAN WARPLANE, a Fokker, out of
     control, trailing SMOKE.

     Diana's sharp gaze catches sight of SOMEONE IN THE
     COCKPIT, struggling to escape.

     The PLANE dives down, crashing into the water!

     Without hesitation, Diana DIVES off the cliff, hurtling
     hundreds of feet through the air and into the sea.


23   EXT. UNDERWATER (AEGEAN SEA) - MOMENTS LATER                   23

     The plane SINKS, its PILOT already underwater.

     He struggles to break free from the cockpit, but his
     MESSENGER BAG is caught!

     A loud CREEEEAAAK pierces the water. The PILOT looks up
     to see a deep FISSURE running along the tail. It BREAKS
     free and the engine and cockpit sink like stones.

     As he sinks, he loses breath, the light fading.
     Suddenly, out of nowhere, DIANA APPEARS ON THE PLANE'S
     TAIL, above the surface. The sun blazes, framing her, an
     epic vision -- like an angel.

     The PILOT blinks into the light one last time. The DARK
     DEPTHS closing in on his face as his eyes fall shut.

     Diana DIVES in and grabs the Pilot.

     She braces her feet against the plane and rips him away,
     kicking to the surface.
                                                             17.


24   EXT. SURFACE (AEGEAN SEA) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                 24

     Diana surfaces with the Pilot, swimming effortlessly to
     shore, unaware that behind them a WWI GERMAN
     BATTLE-CRUISER and its THREE LANDING CRAFT head towards
     the island.


25   EXT. GERMAN BATTLE-CRUISER - DECK - CONTINUOUS ACTION         25

     A GERMAN COMMANDER stares into the THICK FOG with FIELD
     GLASSES. His LIEUTENANT at his side, bewildered.

                             GERMAN LIEUTENANT
               Where did this fog come from?

                             GERMAN COMMANDER
               Find the plane.

26   EXT. GERMAN LEAD LANDING CRAFT 1 - CONTINUOUS ACTION          26

     GERMAN SOLDIER #1 spots something, pointing --

                             GERMAN SOLDIER #1
                    (to ship's tillerman)
               It's there!

     Landing craft 1 steers through the FOG toward the
     Fokker's TAIL SECTION, still afloat.


27   EXT. GERMAN LANDING CRAFT 1 - CONTINUOUS ACTION               27

     German Soldier #1 REACHES OUT over the side and HIS HAND
     disappears in a BLINDING REFLECTION, like fractal SHARDS
     of LIGHT hitting a mirror.

     He briefly sees a flash of a beautiful island --
     startled, he jolts back, the image vanishing into fog.

     He leans back out and there it is again! Beyond the
     protective RING of FOG and reefs -- AN ISLAND! And Diana
     swimming the Pilot toward the beach!

     Stunned, he leans inboard, once again enshrouded in a
     foggy, cold, gray day.

                             GERMAN SOLDIER #1
                    (stammering)
               The pilot. He's... there?

     The tillerman is skeptical but slowly turns the boat.
                                                             18.


28   EXT. BEACH (THEMYSCIRA) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                   28

     Diana drags the Pilot onto the beach, his bag around his
     shoulder.

     She gently lays him on the sand and gets her first real
     look at the FIRST MAN SHE'S EVER SEEN. His mouth, lips,
     jaw, hair, stubble -- captivating.

     This is CAPTAIN STEVE TREVOR (30s), rugged, handsome.    An
     American fighter pilot undercover for the British.

     Steve wakes, squinting in the sun, surprised to discover
     Diana's not a hallucination. He takes in the strange
     surroundings, blown back by her breathtaking beauty.

                              STEVE (PILOT)
               Wow.

     She backs away as he sits up, surprised by the timber of
     his voice. Diana studies his eyes. They're so blue.

                             DIANA
               You are a... man?

                              STEVE
               Yes, I mean --
                    (lowering his voice)
               Yeah. Do I not look like a...
               where am I?

                             DIANA
               You are on Themyscira.

                             STEVE
               Thema-- say it again?

                              DIANA
               Who are you?

     They're cut off by the ear-splitting SOUNDS OF SCRAPING
     METAL. Diana and Steve turn to see the GERMAN
     BATTLE-CRUISER running aground on the protective REEF
     around Themyscira.

                             STEVE
               I'm one of the good guys, and
               those are the bad guys.

     The wounded battle-cruiser sinks, but her THREE GERMAN
     LANDING CRAFT steam towards the beach.

                             STEVE
               Y'know... Germans.

                              DIANA
               Germans?

                             STEVE
               We gotta get out of here.

                              HIPPOLYTA (O.S.)
               Diana!

     Diana and Steve look up to the cliffs to see --

     Battle-ready HIPPOLYTA on HORSEBACK, with the QUEEN'S
     GUARD, all with ARROWS pointed directly at Steve.

                             HIPPOLYTA
                    (to Steve; enraged)
               Step away from her! NOW!

                             STEVE
               Where are their guns?

     ANOTHER WAVE OF GUARDSWOMEN arrive behind Hippolyta on
     HORSEBACK, aiming ARROWS at the German ships.

                             STEVE
               Do they only have arrows? We need
               guns. Because the Germans have
               guns. Lots and lots of --

     A torrent of FLAMING ARROWS sail from the cliff top, over
     Diana's and Steve's heads, hitting all three landing
     craft.

     The Germans FIRE back in retaliation!

                              STEVE
               Get down!

     Steve pulls Diana behind a ROCK FORMATION, out of sight
     of the invading Germans now fanning out across the beach.

     MORE AMAZONS join the others on the cliff, led by ORANA.

     Orana shoots a GRAPPLING ARROW into the rock wall of the
     opposite cliff. She swings down the attached line toward
     the beach, firing ARROW AFTER ARROW at the Germans.

     ON THE BEACH:   Diana and Steve watch her, stunned.

     Diana turns as a soldier lifts his rifle and FIRES. She
     sees the BULLET leave the gun, heading straight for her
     in SLOW MOTION --

     Steve TACKLES DIANA, pushing her to the ground as the
     BULLET just misses her.

28   CONTINUED: (2)                                                28

     Diana's heightened senses allow her to see the bullet
     sailing past -- she's confused by what she's seeing --
     until it HITS ORANA!

     Diana is aghast as Orana falls slack on the grappling
     line, her lifeless body swinging against the cliff wall.

               DIANA                            STEVE
     NO!                             Keep your head down!

     The Germans continue to FIRE at the Amazons atop the
     cliff, several of whom plummet to their deaths on the
     beach below.

     Orana's slayer squints down his rifle's eyesight --
     WHUNK! An arrow now sprouts from the rifle barrel.

     A STAMPEDE OF HORSEWOMEN ride through a massive STONE
     ARCHWAY onto the beach. The AMAZON CAVALRY, led by
     ANTIOPE.

     Antiope, MENALIPPE and ARTEMIS at her side, BLOCKS
     BULLETS with her SHIELD and cuts through Germans with her
     SWORD, trampling them beneath her horse's feet.

     Steve crawls out, seeing a soldier taking cover behind a
     rock nearby.

                             STEVE
                    (to Diana)
               Stay here!

     A GLINT of a KNIFE in Steve's hand as he leaps on the
     soldier, dragging him down -- then quickly reappearing,
     SHOOTING a RIFLE.

     Diana grabs the SWORD and SHIELD of a fallen sister and
     joins the battle. She's quickly surrounded, but holds
     her own, fending off a SWARM of Germans.

                             ANTIOPE
                    (shouting to her
                     troops)
               Omicron formation!

     Antiope's team organizes into a formation, working
     together but still overwhelmed until --

     HIPPOLYTA arrives on the beach, joining the battle in
     spectacular fashion. She slashes through the Germans
     like no other Amazon, proving why she is QUEEN!

     Diana is in awe of her mother -- it's the first time
     she's witnessed her fight.

28   CONTINUED: (3)                                                  28

     Antiope finds relief as Hippolyta joins her side -- the
     two sisters fight back-to-back, wiping out all but FIVE
     GERMANS.

                              ANTIOPE
                     (to Menalippe)
                SHIELD!

     Steve watches as MENALIPPE takes her SHIELD with both
     hands, holds it parallel to the ground. Antiope
     dismounts, runs at her, then jumps onto the SHIELD,
     springing HIGH INTO THE AIR!

     One of the five remaining Germans raises his rifle to
     fire at Antiope, but Steve SHOOTS him first, saving
     Antiope's life, which is not lost on Diana.

     At the height of her mid-air arc, Antiope FIRES THREE
     ARROWS AT ONCE, eliminating all but ONE remaining German
     who raises his gun at Diana.

                               STEVE
                Diana!

     Steve aims at the soldier as he fires, but Antiope steps
     in front of her niece. TAKING THE BULLET, she falls to
     the ground. Steve fires and the German falls, too.

                               DIANA
                Antiope!

     The noise, the battle, everything falls away as Diana
     races to Antiope's side.

                               DIANA
                No!   Please no!

     Diana races to Antiope, dying, struggling to speak --

                              ANTIOPE
                Diana. The time has come...
                you... you must...

                DIANA                             ANTIOPE
     What!?   Antiope!!                   (barely audible)
                                       The Godkiller, Diana, go --

                              DIANA
                     (uncomprehending)
                Go where? Antiope! No!

     Hippolyta rushes to Diana, falling to her knees in front
     of Antiope's lifeless body.

     Antiope stills. Diana's devastated, her first experience
     of death. Philippus looks on, saddened.

     Hippolyta grabs her sword and turns to Steve.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You!

     Diana rushes between them.

                             DIANA
               Mother, no! He fought at my side
               against the invaders.

                             MENALIPPE
               Typical. The man fights against
               his own people.

                             STEVE
               They weren't my people.

                             MENALIPPE
               Then why do you wear their colors?

                             ARTEMIS
               Tell us!

     Steve looks down at his German uniform.

               We should kill him right now and
               be done with it.

     Philippus talks, calm despite her friend's death.

                             PHILIPPUS
               He dies now and we know nothing

30   FLASHBACK - EXT. MILITARY INSTALLATION (OTTOMAN EMPIRE) -       30
     DAY

     Steve, in his GERMAN PILOT'S UNIFORM, stands on an
     AIRSTRIP next to several other PILOTS and PLANES.

                                STEVE (V.O.)
                  British Intelligence got word that
                  the leader of the German Army,
                  General Ludendorff, was visiting a
                  secret military installation in
                  the Ottoman Empire.


     STEVE'S POV

     FOLLOWING GENERAL LUDENDORFF as he and his troops enter a
     large, nondescript WAREHOUSE.

                                STEVE (V.O.)
                  I posed as one of their pilots,
                  then flew in with them.


31   INT. MILITARY INSTALLATION - FACTORY/LABORATORY - DAY           31

     Steve follows the others into the warehouse.

                                STEVE (V.O.)
                  According to our intel, the
                  Germans had no troops left, no
                  money, no munitions of any kind...

     Steve discovers this is an immense MUNITIONS FACTORY
     manned by elderly men, women, and children, all of whom
     appear to be slave labor for the Germans in the mass
     production of BOMBS.

                                STEVE (V.O.)
                  ... but our intel was wrong. The
                  Germans had the Turks making bombs
                  for them. And not just bombs...

     Ludendorff   approaches a SCIENTIST, wearing head-to-toe
     protective   gear. Removing mask and goggles, we meet the
     STUNNINGLY   BEAUTIFUL DR. MARU, 40s. She finishes writing
     a CHEMICAL   FORMULA in a NOTEBOOK. She turns, greets
     Ludendorff   with respect and confidence.

                             STEVE (V.O.)
               New weapons. Invented by
               Ludendorff's chief psychopath.
               Dr. Isabel Maru.

     Steve can't help but stare admiringly... until Maru turns
     her head, revealing METAL PLATES on her face, hiding
     damage incurred by her own experiments.

                             STEVE (V.O.)
               Boys in the trenches call her `Dr.
               Poison.'

     Maru leads LUDENDORFF to her lab, to a fully-enclosed
     TEST CHAMBER with a VIEWING WINDOW.

     In the chamber, Steve sees a gruesome site: A PRISONER,
     his terrified face covered by a GAS MASK, his wrists and
     ankles stretched out and restrained by CHAINS. Another
     CHAIN leads from the top of the prisoner's gas mask.

     Out of earshot, Steve watches as Maru shows Ludendorff
     the formulas in her notebook, explaining them.

     Maru closes the notebook and sets it down, then releases
     GLOWING GAS into the chamber. Panicked, the prisoner's
     terrified eyes widen, MUFFLED SCREAMS cry out behind his
     gas mask.

     Enraptured, Maru puts a hand against the window, her
     anxious eyes follow the SMOKE filling the chamber: It
     has to work this time.

     Ludendorff watches, waiting.

     Steve looks on in horror as the prisoner's gas mask
     begins to show slight signs of disintegration: thin
     cracks in the glass, wear on the straps, corrosion on the
     metal -- Maru isn't even aware she's grinning, but then --

     The prisoner realizes the gas mask is resisting the gas,
     protecting him. He calms. Maru's face falls.

     Her eyes dart to Ludendorff who shows obvious signs of
     disappointment.

     Steve watches as a frustrated Dr. Maru pulls a LEVER --
     and the chain connected to the prisoner's gas mask tears
     the mask off, exposing him to what's left of the gas!

     The panicked prisoner screams in pain as he breathes in,
     dying horribly!

     Steve can barely watch, he glances away -- and his eyes
     lock on Maru's notebook.
                                                    (CONTINUED)

31   CONTINUED: (2)                                                31

                             STEVE (V.O.)
               From what I saw... if Dr. Maru was
               able to complete her work,
               millions would die. The war would
               never end.
                    (beat)
               I had to do something...

     Steve makes a decision, knowing it could cost him his
     life -- he grabs the notebook.

                             STEVE
               Dammit.

     Maru turns to see her notebook gone! She looks around
     just in time to see Steve leaving. They lock eyes
     briefly as he exits --


32   EXT. MILITARY INSTALLATION - AIRSTRIP - CONTINUOUS ACTION     32

     An ALARM BLARES as Steve -- pursued by a dozen German
     soldiers -- runs to a FOKKER, props already rotating.


33   EXT. SKY ABOVE THE MILITARY INSTALLATION - CONTINUOUS         33
     ACTION

     Steve's plane takes off, but he doesn't fly away.
     Instead, he doubles back toward the warehouse, where
     Ludendorff and Maru escape in a MILITARY VEHICLE.


34   INT. STEVE'S FOKKER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                       34

     Steve uses the Fokker's 12-BARREL ROTARY CANNON to FIRE
     on Ludendorff's vehicle -- but it gets away.

     Steve trains the gun on the evacuated military
     installation's glass roof, whose WORKERS have just
     evacuated. He STRAFES it, taking out all of the glass
     panes before dropping HAND-BOMBS into the complex.

     The factory EXPLODES in a fire ball as he flies off into
     the sky!

     END FLASHBACK.


35   INT. PALACE - THRONE ROOM - DAY                               35

     Steve tries to resist the lasso again, but can't --

                             STEVE
               I was on my way back to London
               when the Germans shot me down...

     Steve's eyes firmly on his BAG at Hippolyta's feet.
     Diana removes Dr. Maru's notebook.

                             STEVE
               But if I can get those notes to
               British Intelligence in time, it
               might make a difference...
                    (emotional)
               ... stop millions more from
               dying... Stop the war...

                              DIANA
               War?   What war?

                             STEVE
               ... The War to End All Wars.   Four
               years, twenty-seven nations,
               twenty-five million dead --
               soldiers... and civilians...

     Steve swallows hard, forced by the lasso to reveal all.
     Not just the facts, but also his feelings about them.

                             STEVE
                    (with difficulty)
               ... Innocent people. Women and
               children. Slaughtered. Their
               homes -- villages -- looted,
               burned. Weapons deadlier, more
               horrifying than you can imagine.
               Like nothing I've ever seen...
               It's like...
                    (absolute truth to
                     him)
               ... like the world is going to
               end.

     Steve's head hangs low, Diana looks at him with sympathy
     and sadness.

                             HIPPOLYTA
                    (stoney-faced)
               Take him to the infirmary.

     Diana tenses, clearly shaken by this.


36   EXT. PALACE - COURTYARD - NIGHT                               36

     Diana follows Hippolyta and the cortege into the
     courtyard, trying to lend voice to their debate.

                             PHILLIPUS
               Should we let him go?

                             HIPPOLYTA
               And risk him bringing more men to
               our shores. Phillipus...

                              DIANA
                    (quiet)
               Mother -- ?

                             PHILLIPUS
               We can't hold him forever, my
               Queen.

                             DIANA
               Excuse me, Mother. But after
               everything the man said... this
               must be Ares.

     They all stop and face Diana.

                             SENATOR ACANTHA
               What are you talking about, child?

                             DIANA
               Forgive me, Senator Acantha,
               but... the man called it a war
               without end. Millions of people
               already dead. Like nothing he's
               ever seen. Only Ares could do
               such a thing. We cannot simply
               let him go.
                    (then)
               We must go with him.
                             HIPPOLYTA
               We are not deploying our army and
               leaving Themyscira defenseless to
               go and fight their war!

                             DIANA
               It is not their war.
                    (repeating the
                     history lesson)
               Zeus created man to be just and
               wise, strong and passionate.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               That was a story, Diana. There is
               much you do not know. Mankind is
               easily corruptible.

                             DIANA
               But Ares is behind that
               corruption. It is Ares who has
               these Germans fighting. And
               stopping the God of War is our
               foreordinance --

                             HIPPOLYTA
               We must care to our wounded, honor
               our fallen!

                             DIANA
               Themyscira has seen death for the
               first time, Mother. Ares must not
               be allowed to threaten us again.
               We know only too well what happens
               if he finds us -- and he will.
               Never again shall we be enslaved.
               And now mankind must be freed. As
               Amazons this is our duty!

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You are not an Amazon like the
               rest of us, Diana.

     That strikes Diana in the heart.   Hippolyta stops herself
     from revealing more, covering --

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You don't know war like we do.

                             DIANA
                    (accusatory)
               You may be afraid to face Ares,
               Mother, but I am not.
                             HIPPOLYTA
                    (angry; for her own
                     good)
               Afraid? You know nothing of fear,
               child. Nothing of war. Nothing
               of pain. Nothing of sacrifice.
               So you will do nothing.
                    (beat)
               Your Queen forbids it.

     Diana leaves, brimming with anger -- Hippolyta with
     conflict.


37   INT. INFIRMARY - EPIONE'S ROOM - NIGHT                       37

     EPIONE, a skilled healer, stitches up a wound on Diana's
     ARM. Diana doesn't flinch.

               Who told you that?

                             EPIONE
               He did.
                    (beat)
               What will the Queen do with him?
               Will she kill him?

     OFF Diana, wondering herself.


38   INT. INFIRMARY - STEVE'S ROOM - LATER                         38

     Diana enters to find Steve stepping out of a TUB -- his
     back to her -- NAKED. She studies his body as he towels
     himself dry.

     Steve's shoulder has been BANDAGED, but his body is
     covered with CUTS, BRUISES, SCARS from other battles.
     Diana touches her own wound, sympathetic. Steve finally
     turns, startled to see her there.

                             STEVE
               Didn't hear you come in./Didn't
               hear you knock.

     Diana stares at him.   Puzzled.   Steve isn't enjoying the
     look on her face.

                             DIANA
               Would you say you're a typical
               example of your sex?

     Steve raises an eyebrow, slightly offended, but he
     doesn't cover himself.

                              STEVE
               I like to think of myself as...
               above average.

                               DIANA
               What is that?

     Steve is relieved to see she means his POCKET WATCH on
     top of his clothes.

                               STEVE
               It's a watch.

                               DIANA
               A watch.

                             STEVE
               My father gave it to me. Been
               through hell and back with him,
               and now me, and it's still
               ticking.

               Why?

                             STEVE
               Because it tells time.
                    (off her look)
               So, I know when to wake up, work,
               eat, sleep.

                             DIANA
                    (that's ridiculous)
               You let this little thing tell you
               what to do?

     Steve takes the watch from her, covers up.

                             STEVE
               Do you mind if I ask you a couple
               hundred questions?

     Diana shrugs.

                             STEVE
               What is this place?

                              DIANA
               Themyscira.

                             STEVE
               I caught that before. I mean what
               is this place? How come I've
               never heard of it? Who the hell
               are you people? How do you know
               English?

                             DIANA
               We speak hundreds of languages.
               We are the bridge to a greater
               understanding between all men.

                             STEVE
               Funny, because I understand even
               less now than before you walked
               in.

     The way Steve watches her makes Diana self-conscious.

                             STEVE
               Hey, I didn't get to say it
               earlier... but thanks for dragging
               me out of the water.

                             DIANA
               Thank you for what you did on the
               beach.

                             STEVE
               So... Are you here to let me go?

                              DIANA
               I'm sorry... It's not up to me. I
               tried. I even asked them to send
               me with you --

     Steve's eyes brighten.    Diana backpedals in
     embarrassment.

                               DIANA
               -- or anyone.    An Amazon.   The
               Amazons.

                               STEVE
               The Amazons?

                             DIANA
               It is our sacred duty to defend
               the world... and I wish to go.
               But my mother will not allow it.

     Which, from her tone, clearly disappoints Diana. Steve's
     surprised to find himself disappointed, too, though his
     better sense tells him not to be.

                             STEVE
               Can't say I blame her.
                    (off Diana's
                     surprise)
               The way this war is going, I
               wouldn't let anyone I care about
               near it.

                             DIANA
               Then why do you want to go back?

     Steve starts dressing.

                             STEVE
               I don't think want is the word,
               but... I've gotta try.
                    (wistful; remembering
                     his father)
               My father used to say.

                             STEVE (CONT'D)
               `You see something wrong in the
               world, you can either do nothing,
               or you can do something. And you
               already tried nothing.'

     Moved, Diana takes that in.   Determination on her face.


39   EXT. ARMORY (THEMYSCIRA) - NIGHT                                39

     On this still, MOONLIT night, the armory stands
     monolithic amongst the other buildings of Themyscira.

     Diana surveys from an opposing hillside. The building's
     face an impenetrable mountainside, accessible by only one
     main entrance, completely blocked by SEVERAL GUARDS who
     stand watch -- and even if she could take them all on,
     Diana doesn't want to hurt them.

     Studying the building further, she focuses on the SINGLE
     WINDOW in the HIGH TOWER.

     Diana's face darkens with fixed focus. She looks down at
     her feet, back at the space -- calculating it all. She
     turns to the hillside behind her, spots a distant branch
     twisting from a tree. It looks relatively equidistant to
     the armory.

     She takes a step towards it, then another -- and another --
     and Diana leaps into the air, locked on the branch -- but
     she lands far before reaching it!

     As Diana jogs to a stop, her frown fades:      I know that I
     can do this.

     Diana sets off in a dead sprint towards the cliffside --
     she LEAPS over the abyss below. Her face calm as she
     SOARS through the night --

     THE BUILDING BARRELS TOWARDS HER, her eyes widen.
     Thinking fast she GRASPS a SPUR and --

     She SLAMS into the side, holding on. She revels in the
     moment briefly and then sobers: Now what?

     The window is at least 30 feet above her -- below, the
     abyss. The wind MOANS.

     Diana's GRIP TIGHTENS on the spur.

     Suddenly, the SPUR CRACKS!    Diana falls --

     She scrambles against the wall, her hands grasping at the
     stone face. SHARDS FLYING around her, she realizes she's
     strong enough to make her own handholds -- SLAM!
                                                       (CONTINUED)
                                                             34.
39   CONTINUED:                                                    39

     Her hand catches and she YANKS to a stop!

     Shocked, she hangs there for a second, then grins
     fiercely. She begins to CLIMB her way straight up the
     stone wall, her fingers slamming into the tower, making
     her own ladder out of solid stone.


40   EXT. ARMORY - ROOFTOP - CONTINUOUS ACTION                     40

     Diana FLIPS herself up onto a tiny ledge outside of the
     window. She moves in --


41   INT. ARMORY - CONTINUOUS ACTION                               41

     In the moonlit darkness of the deserted armory, Diana
     moves towards the GODKILLER SWORD. She takes it from its
     SCABBARD, awed by its weight, its sheer power in her
     hands. She holds it tight. It feels right.

     As she leaves, she passes a suit of ancient armor and
     SNATCHES ITS SHIELD.

     Then the LASSO OF HESTIA disappears from its hook.

     Diana, now half-dressed in GREEK ARMOR, admires a glowing
     GOLDEN BELT-LIKE GIRDLE, then looks ahead to something
     that really catches her eye.

     BLURRY in our f.g., the silhouette of a woman's form
     GLOWS GOLD, RED, AND BLUE from its display.

     Diana's eyes widen with delight.


42   INT. INFIRMARY - STEVE'S ROOM - MINUTES LATER                 42

     Diana enters, waking Steve --

                               STEVE
               Nice outfit.

                             DIANA
                    (without irony)
               Thank you. Now I will show you
               the way off the island. And you
               will take me to Ares.

                                STEVE
                       (as she's a bit nuts)
               Deal.

     Steve grabs his watch and bag.
                                                           35.


43   EXT. HARBOR (THEMYSCIRA) - DOCK - CONTINUOUS ACTION          43

     Diana and Steve on HORSEBACK emerge from the forest at
     the edge of a harbor. Diana and Steve turn to the front
     of a not-very-modern-looking (by 1918 standards) AMAZON
     SAILING VESSEL.

                             STEVE
                    (skeptical)
               I'm leaving in that?

                             DIANA
               We are.

                             STEVE
               We're leaving in that?

                             DIANA
               Do you not know how to sail?

                             STEVE
                    (a touch of bravado)
               Of course, I know how to sail.
               Why wouldn't I be able to sail?
                    (beat)
               Just haven't since I was a kid --
     She nods, motions to the boat with encouragement.

                             DIANA
               Then there's nothing to be afraid
               of.

     Steve hesitates.

                             DIANA
               What?

     Steve nods at the valley behind them, where HIPPOLYTA and
     the QUEEN'S GUARD thunder in on their horses.

     Hippolyta raises her hand, ordering her GUARDS to halt.
     She approaches Diana ALONE.

     Diana takes a breath, reluctantly meeting her mother's
     eyes, dreading this.

                             DIANA
                    (defiant; strong)
               I can't stand by while innocent
               lives are lost. If no one else
               will defend the world from Ares, I
               must. I have to go --


                                                    (CONTINUED)
                                                           36.
43   CONTINUED:                                                  43

                             HIPPOLYTA
               I know.

     Diana finds not fury on her mother's face, but sadness.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               Or at least I know that I cannot
               stop you. There is so much... so
               much you do not understand.

                             DIANA
               I understand enough. That I'm
               willing to fight for those who
               cannot fight for themselves. Like
               you once did...

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You know that if you choose to
               leave us, you may never return.
               Once you leave this island, its
               location will fade from your
               memory...

     Hippolyta relents, nodding. She climbs down from her
     horse, taking something from the saddle. She presents
     Diana with ANTIOPE'S HEADBAND.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               This belonged to the greatest
               warrior in our history -- make
               sure you are worthy of it.

                             DIANA
               I will.

     She hands it to her daughter.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               Be careful in the world of men,
               Diana, they do not deserve you.

     Hippolyta tries to memorize her daughter's face,
     believing it's the last time she'll ever see it.

                             HIPPOLYTA
               You have been my greatest love.
               Today you are my greatest sorrow.

     Diana WALKS AWAY from her mother, and the only home she's
     ever known, towards Steve and the ship.

     The weight of this good-bye doesn't go unnoticed by
     Steve.
                                                            37.


44   EXT. THEMYSCIRAN SAILING VESSEL (AEGEAN SEA) - NIGHT         44

     Diana looks back towards the island, her whole world
     until now.


45   EXT. SHORELINE (THEMYSCIRA) - NIGHT                          45

     Menalippe approaches, joining Hippolyta's side.

                             MENALIPPE
               Should you have told her?

                              HIPPOLYTA
               The more she knows, the faster he
               will find her.


46   EXT. THEMYSCIRAN SAILING VESSEL (AEGEAN SEA) - NIGHT         46

     A BREEZE moves through Diana's hair as she takes a
     breath, watching the island drift away, and in a SUDDEN
     FLICKER of fog -- it is gone. Bittersweet. She eyes
     Steve at the TILLER. He looks at his WATCH, still
     ticking, then pockets it.

                             DIANA
               How long until we reach the war?

                             STEVE
               The war? Well, which part? The
               Eastern Front in France is 400
               miles long -- from the Alps to the
               Atlantic. Then there's the
               Dolomites in Italy, Turks in
               Arabia -- there used to be a
               Russian Front but they quit last
               year so they could kill the Tzar
               and have a revolution.

                             DIANA
               Where the fighting is the most
               intense then. If you take me
               there, I am sure I will find who
               I'm looking for.

                              STEVE
               Who's that?

                              DIANA
               Ares.

                              STEVE
               Ares?   As in the God of War?

                             DIANA
               The God of War is our
               responsibility. Only an Amazon
               can defeat him. With this.

     Diana points the SWORD at Steve, he holds his hands up.

                             DIANA
               And once I do, the war will end.

     Steve gently pushes the sword away from him. He would
     normally refute this outright, but after all he's seen
     today, he's turned upside down --

                             STEVE
               Look, Princess, I like your
               spirit, and maybe you know
               something I don't, but this war is
               so sprawling, there's nothing the
               two of us can do about it. But we
               can try to get to the men who can.

                             DIANA
               You're looking at the person who
               can. And after I find and destroy
               Ares, the German armies will be
               freed from his influence -- and
               they will be good men again.

                             STEVE
                    (as she's nuts)
               I'm starting to understand why
               your mother didn't want you to
               leave.
                    (beat)
               How much do you really know about
               the rest of the world?

                             DIANA
               The world of men? I know all
               there is to know about them --
               from the great books.

     Steve can't tell whether she's joking or not.

                             STEVE
               The great books. Those books
               explain why there are no men on
               that island? Or kids?

                             DIANA
               I was raised on the island.

               Sheltered upbringing.

                             DIANA
               My mother sculpted me from clay.
               I was brought to life by Zeus.

                             STEVE
               Oh. Well, that's not how babies
               are made where I come from.

     Diana turns to Steve, moving closer.   The tension between
     them palpable. Diana gets close --

                             DIANA
               You refer to reproductive biology.

                             STEVE
               I refer to more than that.
                               DIANA
               Ah.    The pleasures of the flesh.

     Steve gets closer.

                             STEVE
                    (pleasantly
                     surprised)
               You know about that?

                             DIANA
               Of course. I've read all twelve
               volumes of Clio's Treatises on
               Bodily Pleasure.
                             STEVE
               All twelve, huh?
                    (off her nod)
               You bring any of them with you?

     Steve moves closer to Diana.   She grins --

                             DIANA
               You would not enjoy them. They
               came to the conclusion that men
               are essential for procreation, but
               when it comes to pleasure...
               unnecessary.

     Steve gives Diana a look that seems to suggest he'd
     challenge that. Diana takes that look in for a split
     second, then turns away, self-conscious. Steve does the
     same. And they sail on...
                                                            40.


47    EXT. HANGAR (BELGIUM) - DR. MARU'S LABORATORY - DAY            47

      GENERAL LUDENDORFF marches toward a HANGAR that's become
      Dr. Maru's new FACTORY. He's followed by a CAPTAIN and
      his GUARDS. Ludendorff does not look happy, despite the
      hustle and bustle of workers.

                              LUDENDORFF
                How long until we are operational?

                                 CAPTAIN
                Two days, sir.

                              LUDENDORFF
                You have until tonight, Captain.

                              CAPTAIN
                Sir, the men have had no food.   No
                sleep.

                              LUDENDORFF
                Do you think I've had food or
                rest, Captain? Do you hear me
                making excuses? Your men are
                weak. Complacent. You've spoiled
                them. You've let them forget that
                an attack can come at any time --
                from any quarter -- so let's you
                and I remind them, shall we?

      Ludendorff SHOOTS the Captain, making an example of him.
      His body THUDS to the ground.


48    INT. HANGAR - DR. MARU'S LABORATORY - CONTINUOUS ACTION        48

      Ludendorff walks into Maru's new lab in mid-construction.
      BARRELS of CHEMICALS and EQUIPMENT line the hangar.


48A   INT. HANGAR - DR. MARU'S LAB - DAY                            48A

      Maru furiously works, looking at the chemicals, her
      formulas, writing in a NEW NOTEBOOK -- she's at a
      crossroads. She stops, stuck -- when Ludendorff
      approaches.

                               LUDENDORFF
                Doctor.   Are you making progress?

                              MARU
                Not enough... It is over, General.
                Germany is giving up.

                Von Hindenburg has recommended the
                Kaiser sign the armistice. We
                have run out of time.

                              LUDENDORFF
                Once the Kaiser sees your newest
                weapon, he will never sign the
                armistice.

                              MARU
                But without my book...

      Ludendorff turns to Maru, gazes at her.

                              LUDENDORFF
                We will get your book. But I
                believe in you, not it. I KNOW
                that you CAN and you WILL succeed.
                     (beat)
                It is what you were put on this
                Earth to do.

      The way he says it, as if he were God himself.

                  MARU                       LUDENDORFF
      Something did come to me         (ALT)
      last night. For you...        It has been a long journey.
                                    I need...

      Doctor Maru pulls out a METAL CASE, produces a GLASS
      CAPSULE full of BLUE GAS.

                              MARU
                A different type of gas.
                     (beat)
                To restore your strength.
      General Ludendorff takes the capsule, examines it.

                              MARU
                And make you into the god you are.

      He breaks the capsule under his nose, inhales -- his
      veins GLOW as he breathes in. He stands taller, re-
      energizes, confident, his hand holds a GUN -- and CRUSHES
      it.

      A STRANGE WIND BLOWS across Maru... she turns, as if she
      can hear a VOICE. Then she grins.

                              MARU
                General... I have it. And if it
                is what I think... it's going to
                be... terrible.

49    EXT. THEMYSCIRAN SAILING VESSEL (OCEAN) - MORNING              49

      Diana wakes to find an enormous STEAM SHIP, its HORN
      BLARING, towing their boat into the harbor. She blinks,
      never having seen anything like it.

                              STEVE (O.S.)
                Good morning.
                     (beat)
                We got lucky, caught a ride.    Made
                good time.

      Over Steve's shoulder, Diana gets her first eye-popping
      view of industrialized LONDON (circa 1918).

                              STEVE
                Welcome to jolly ol' London.

      Diana, awestruck, takes in the city's skyline.

                                DIANA
                It's hideous.

                                STEVE
                Eh.    It's not for everyone.


50    EXT. PICADILLY CIRCUS (LONDON) - DAY                           50

      Diana, eyes-wide, takes in the COBBLESTONE STREETS.

      OVER-DRESSED PEOPLE, a HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGE, NEWSSTANDS
      shout out headlines of WAR and VOTES FOR WOMEN. These
      are all FIRSTS for Diana, and she seems fascinated by
      them -- to her this is the world of good men.

      She looks through various STORE WINDOWS with wonder. She
      moves past a BAKERY, breathing in the wonderful smell.

      A HORSELESS CARRIAGE HONKS, Diana watching it drive by,
      moving out of its way -- but with a smile.

                                STEVE (O.S.)
                Diana!

      Steve is working to keep up with Diana. She sees
      something she can barely fathom -- a MAN and WOMAN
      holding hands, very much in love. It's captivating.

               Why are they holding hands?

                             STEVE
               Well, because they're... together.

     Diana takes Steve's hand.   He lets it go.

                             STEVE
               No, we're not together... I mean,
               like that. Look, we need to go
               this way.

                             DIANA
               Because this is the way to the
               war?

                             STEVE
                    (points the opposite
                     way)
               Technically, that's the way to
               war.

                             DIANA
               Then where are we going?

                             STEVE
                    (pats his bag)
               I have to get this notebook to my
               superiors.

                             DIANA
               I let you go, you take me to Ares.
               We made a deal, Steve Trevor. A
               deal is a promise. A promise is
               unbreakable.
                             STEVE
                    (almost finds that
                     endearing)
               Oh, boy. Okay...

               train ticket.

     Someone glares at Steve's clothes -- the remains of a
     German pilot.

                             STEVE
               I need to change.

     People stare at Diana, her cloak open, revealing her
     armor. She smiles and nods, "Hello!," they back away.
     Steve tries to keep her cloak closed -- he can't help but
     take a second glance at her leg.

                             DIANA
               What are you doing?

                             STEVE

                     glance)
               We need to get you some clothes.

                             DIANA
               Why?

                             STEVE
               Because you aren't wearing any.

     Diana, confused, looks down at her armor, then looks
     around at the mostly overdressed women on the street.

                             DIANA
               What do these women wear into
               battle?

                             STEVE
                    (how to say it?)
               Well, women don't exactly --

     Diana's eyes snap to a YOUNG MOTHER holding a BABY.

                             DIANA
               A baby.

     The mother looks at Diana quite oddly. Steve takes Diana
     gently by the arm, nods to the mother, and keeps moving.

                             STEVE
               And that one wasn't made out of
               clay.

     They move on, both unaware that they're being following
     by a MAN IN A SUIT.

                             VOICE (V.O.)

               Well, thank God for that! I

               really did, then I got your call --
                    (to Diana)
               He was gone for weeks! Not a
               word. Very unlike him.

     Etta extends a hand to Diana.    Diana just looks at it.

               Hello. I'm Etta Candy.     Captain

                             ETTA
               Well, it means I do everything. I
               go wherever he goes. Do whatever
               he tells me to do.

                             DIANA
                    (glaring at Steve)
               Where I'm from, that's called

               Ooh, I like this one.
                    (to Diana)
               It does rather feel like that
               sometimes. But the pay's good and
               he's almost never here.

     Eyes Diana's clothing.

               un-fun.

     Diana looks at Steve as if to say, "Do I have to?"

               At least try it on.

     Diana, sighs, then starts to take off her cloak. Etta's
     eyes go wide. She rushes to stop Diana from removing it.

               Oh, my! Aren't you terribly cold
               out here where everyone can see...
               everything? Let's get you into a
               nice, warm, private dressing room,
               shall we?

     Etta leads Diana off, looking to Steve as if to say,
     "Where did you find this woman?"

53   INT. SELFRIDGE & CO. - WOMAN'S WEAR - MOMENTS LATER          53

     Diana, in OUTFIT #1 -- frilly and silly -- stands in
     front of the mirror, miserable. It's ridiculous. Diana
     pulls the dress up, wondering aloud --

                             DIANA
               How can a woman possibly fight in
               this?

                             ETTA
               We fight with our principles.
               It's how we got the vote.

     She winks at Diana, who relates to principled fighting.

                Not that I'm opposed to engaging
                in a bit of fisticuffs when the
                situation calls for it, mind you!


53A   INT. SELFRIDGE & CO. - WOMAN'S WEAR - MOMENTS LATER          53A

      Diana in OUTFIT #2 -- a tight skirt and top.   Etta
      admires it.

                                ETTA
                There we are.    Very nice.

      Diana tries to kick, impossible in this dress. It rips.
      She shakes her head at Etta. This dress won't do.


54    INT. SELFRIDGE & CO. - WOMAN'S WEAR - MOMENTS LATER           54

      Diana, in OUTFIT #3 -- almost exactly what Etta wears -
      yanks at its high collar impatiently.

                               DIANA
                So itchy.   And it's choking me.

                              ETTA
                     (exasperated)
                I can't say that I blame it.


55    INT. SELFRIDGE & CO. - MOMENTS LATER                          55

      Steve walks up to Etta.   He's now dressed in his SUIT.

                                STEVE
                Where is she?

                              ETTA
                Trying on outfit number two
                hundred and twenty-six.

      Diana emerges from the dressing room in FASHIONABLE
      WOMAN'S DRESS that, on any other woman, would be
      unremarkable. On Diana, it's spectacular.

                              DIANA
                Why is everyone staring? Is it
                because I can barely breathe in
                this?

      Diana shifts uncomfortably, self-conscious, and disliking
      the restrictions. Steve, catching himself staring, snaps
      out of it.

                    (to Etta)
               Etta, the whole point was to make
               her less conspicuous.

     Steve looks around the store, grabs a pair of GLASSES.
     He gently puts the glasses on Diana's face. Looks
     satisfied.

                             ETTA
               Really, Steve? All it takes is a
               pair of specs, and suddenly she's
               not the most beautiful woman
               you've ever seen?

     Diana LOOKS into the mirror, takes a deep breath and
     settles into the dress. She smiles as she fixes her
     glasses.


56   EXT. SELFRIDGE & CO./OXFORD ST. - CONTINUOUS ACTION           56

     Diana, HAIR UP, in her GLASSES and NEW OUTFIT pushes
     through the door as DIANA PRINCE. The MAN IN THE SUIT
     from earlier, holds it open for her.

                             DIANA
               Thank you.

     Etta follows Diana and Steve out with the SHOPPING BAGS.
     Diana tucks the LASSO into the inside of her coat --

                             ETTA
               Right then, I'll take the rest of
               this. Good luck, I'll take these
               back to the office and meet you
               both later.

     Etta goes for Diana's SWORD, but Diana yanks it back.

                             ETTA
               It really doesn't go with the
               outfit.

                             STEVE
               It'll be safe. You can trust her.
                    (beat)
               I don't think we're going to run
               into Ares at the meeting.

     Diana reluctantly lets Etta take the sword along with the
     SHOPPING BAGS, presumably carrying her armor.

57   EXT. STREET (LONDON) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      57

     Diana and Steve walk down the street, the SUITED MAN from
     earlier follows them. He's suddenly distracted by the
     reappearance of the Suited Man from earlier, who confers
     with A SECOND SUITED MAN (SM #2).

                             STEVE
               Come on.

                             DIANA
               What is it?

                             STEVE
               Hopefully nothing.

     Steve leads Diana down a less-populated street.

     Diana sees SM #1 and SM #2 tracking them on opposite
     sides of the street.

     Steve, distracted, bumps right into SUITED MAN #3 and
     looks down to find a GUN aimed at his gut.

                             SUITED MAN #3
               Captain Trevor, I believe you
               have something that is the
               property of General Ludendorff.


58   EXT. ALLEYWAY (LONDON) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                    58

     SM #3 backs Steve and Diana into an ALLEYWAY where TWO
     MORE men wait. Now all FIVE of the SUITED MEN gather,
     THREE of them have their GUNS out on Diana and Steve.

                             STEVE
               Quite a reception.

                             SUITED MAN #3
               Give us Dr. Maru's notebook.

     Steve steps in front of Diana, searching his jacket --

               Where did I put that thing?

     At which point -- Steve KICKS THE GUN OUT OF SM #3's
     HANDS, HITTING HIM INTO THE TWO OTHERS HOLDING GUNS.
     Steve holds his arm up, "protecting" Diana --

                             STEVE
                    (to Diana)
               Stay behind me!

     SM #2 FIRES!

     Steve pushes Diana out of the bullet's path, but Diana
     reaches out -- THE BULLET BOUNCES OFF HER BRACELET!

     EVERYONE FREEZES WITH ASTONISHMENT as Diana realizes her
     bracelets may be more than just symbolic.

                             STEVE
               Or not.

     SM #2 and SM #3 FIRE!

     Diana RAISES BOTH BRACELETS, deflecting their bullets.
     Her technique is clumsy at first as she gets used to the
     torque, impact and SOUND.

     Steve takes out SM #1 while Diana grabs SM #3 as his LAST
     SHOT fires -- and lays him out with a blow.

     Diana deflects the last of SM #2's bullets as his gun
     runs EMPTY. Everyone is amazed, especially Steve --

                             STEVE
               How'd you do that?

     She smiles as if to say, you ain't seen nothing yet --

     The remaining THREE SUITED MEN rush Steve and Diana.
     Diana slams her fist into SM #2 while Steve takes on SM
     #4.

     Diana grabs the dazed SM #2 -- swings him around,
     crashing him into SM #5 hard -- and they're both down.    A
     spilt second later, Steve finishes taking out SM #4.

     The suited men run off, leaving only SM #1 behind. SM #1
     stirs. Diana and Steve turn to see him make a run for it --

                             ETTA (O.S.)
               I thought you looked suspicious.

     SM #1 is stopped in his tracks by Etta, wielding the
     GODKILLER, shopping bags at her feet.

               Where do you think you're going?

     SM #1 runs in the other direction, but Diana retrieves
     the LASSO from inside her coat and uses it to pull him
     off his feet, onto his back.

     As the lasso glows, Diana kneels at his side,
     compassionately placing her hand on his chest.    In her
     mind, his actions are not his fault.

                             DIANA
               I am sorry. You are clearly under
               his control. Let me help you get
               free. Tell me where he is...
               Where will I find Ares?

     But the suited man pops a CYANIDE pill between his teeth
     before she can get an answer.

                             DIANA
               He's dead.

     Diana looks at Steve and Etta, horrified.


59   INT. WAR OFFICE BLDG. - ASSEMBLY HALL - DAY                    59

     Diana follows Steve into an ASSEMBLY HALL, where an
     unruly group of men, MILITARY LEADERS and MEMBERS OF
     PARLIAMENT, shout down SIR PATRICK MORGAN (40s), kindly
     faced, a CANE at his side. Diana gazes across the hall
     like a tourist.

                             STEVE
               Stay here.

     Diana nods -- a beat -- then she proceeds to follow Steve
     down the aisle, running her hand across the rows of
     chairs, nodding and smiling to the dumbfounded men
     staring at her.

                             SIR PATRICK
               Gentlemen! Germany is a proud
               nation who will never surrender.
               The only way to end this war and
               restore world peace is to
               negotiate an armistice.

     The ASSEMBLY ROARS objections at Sir Patrick as Steve
     finds COLONEL PHILLIP DARNELL (40s) in the crowd.

     SIX COLONELS, who are not Darnell, turn their heads.

                    (to the Colonels)
               Sorry.

                      whisper)
               Phillip! Phil!

     Darnell turns, amazed to see Steve there -- alive! Steve
     nods toward the door, then realizes the room has gone
     silent.

     Every eye in the hall is fixed on Diana, the only woman
     in a room that doesn't allow women. Diana, oblivious,
     looks up at Sir Patrick.

                              SIR PATRICK
                     (distracted by Diana)
               Our only aim at this moment --
               must be to achieve peace at any
               cost.

     The crowd GRUMBLES again, about a woman's presence there
     as much as Sir Patrick's rhetoric. Steve takes Diana's
     arm and leads her out of the auditorium, Darnell follows.

                             SIR PATRICK
               Gentlemen, I beg you, please, if
               you'll just hear me out --

                             DIANA
               Why will they not let him speak?
               He's talking peace.

                             STEVE
               That's why they won't let him
               speak.

                             DIANA
               But if they want to stop the war,
               isn't that foolish?
                    (beat)
               Are they fools?

     An agitated and embarrassed Colonel Darnell makes his way
     to Steve and Diana, glancing at others watching him.

     Colonel Darnell makes his way to Steve and Diana.

                             COLONEL DARNELL
               Trevor?! What the hell were you
               thinking bringing a woman into the
               council chamber?

     Diana looks at Steve, indignant.   He holds his hand up,
     calming Diana --

                             STEVE
                    (to Darnell)
               I'm sorry, sir, but the intel I've
               brought back is very time
               sensitive. We were attacked by
               men looking for it on the way
               here. One of Maru's notebooks.

                             STEVE
               We need to get it to Cryptography.
               And I need an immediate audience
               with the Generals --

                             COLONEL DARNELL
               You don't just rush in here, like
               this, and demand an audience with
               the cabinet. Cryptography takes
               time and --

                             SIR PATRICK (O.S.)
               Captain Trevor!
     Sir Patrick emerges from the auditorium, making his way
     over to the threesome.

                             SIR PATRICK
               I'd heard you were lost on one of
               your missions, yet here you are.
               And you've brought a friend.

     Sir Patrick smiles sweetly at Diana, she smiles back,
     noticing his cane.

                     (a humble bow)
                Sir Patrick Morgan, at your
                service.

      Diana bows her head in return.

                              DIANA
                Diana, Princess of --

                              STEVE
                     (over)
                Prince, Diana Prince. We... she
                and I... we work together. She
                helped me get this notebook here.
                From Maru's lab --

      Steve presents the notebook. Sir Patrick takes it,
      understanding the implications immediately.

                              SIR PATRICK
                `Dr. Poison' herself? My God...
                     (to Darnell)
                I suggest we assemble the war
                cabinet so they can tell us more.

      Darnell hesitates, then nods.    Steve and Diana grateful
      for the assist --


60A   INT. HANGAR - DR. MARU'S LABORATORY - DAY                     60A

      TIGHT ON: a GAS CANISTER.   Maru turns a valve on it,
      adjusting the pressure.

      She screws the canister onto the side of a small GLASS
      CHAMBER containing a GAS MASK. She locks the canister in
      place, then releases the gas into the chamber.

      Ludendorff and Maru watch as the NEW GAS hisses in,
      creeping towards the gas mask, enveloping it.

      The mask begins to disintegrate -- thin cracks in the
      glass, wear on the straps, corrosion on the metal. It's
      just as it was before.

      Maru, filled with anticipation, wonders: Will it work
      this time? It does. The gas continues, eating away at
      the mask -- the glass cracks apart, the straps sever, the
      metal breaks. A sign of the pain and horror it will soon
      inflict. It is Maru's greatest achievement -- then even
      the glass chamber itself starts to shudder -- and crack!

                                                      (CONTINUED)
                                                              55.
60A   CONTINUED:                                                    60A

      Maru grins, waiting until the last possible second before
      unleashing a SINGLE SPARK into the chamber, causing the
      highly flammable gas to COMBUST in a burst of FLAME!

      Elated, Maru looks to Ludendorff.    He nods with approval.

                              LUDENDORFF
                Congratulations, Doctor.

      OFF the steaming, rotting gas mask...


61    INT. WAR OFFICE - WAR ROOM - LATER                             61

      Steve, Darnell,   Sir Patrick, GENERAL DOUGLAS HAIG, and
      the BRITISH WAR   CABINET crowd in a room, walls full of
      MAPS and PHOTOS   of LUDENDORFF and DR. MARU (before her
      metal implants)   and the notebook. A TERRAIN MAP in the
      center.

      Diana stands near the door watching, LISTENING.   She
      walks to the wall of PHOTOGRAPHS.

                              COLONEL DARNELL
                Cryptographers had no luck. It
                seems like a mixture of two
                languages.

      Diana hones in on the PHOTOS OF LUDENDORFF, even
      examining the PINS holding them to the board, then looks
      at THE NOTES.

                              DIANA
                Ottoman and Sumerian.

      Everyone turns to look at her.

                              DIANA
                     (sincere)
                Surely someone else in this room
                knew that.

                              GENERAL HAIG
                     (incorrectly
                      offended)
                Who is this woman?

      Darnell glares at Steve.   He'd like to know that, too.

                              STEVE
                She's my... secretary.

      Having learned what a secretary is, Diana doesn't like
      being called one.

                                                      (CONTINUED)

                    (skeptical)
               And she speaks Ottoman and
               Sumerian?

                             STEVE
               She's a very good secretary.

                               GENERAL HAIG
               See her out.

                             COLONEL DARNELL
                    (reluctant, but
                     practical)
               If this woman can read it, sir...
               we should hear what she has to
               say.

     General Haig takes a beat, then nods.

                             DIANA
                    (nods at Darnell)
               Thank you.
                    (beat)
               It's a formula... for a new kind
               of mustard...

     Haig scoffs:   mustard?

                             DIANA
               Mustard gas. Hydrogen-based,
               instead of sulfur.

     They react gravely to this...

                             DARNELL
               Gas masks would be useless against
               hydrogen.

                              DIANA
               The book says they plan to release
               this gas at... the front...
                    (unsure what it
                     means)
               Front of what?

                             STEVE
                    (alarmed; to
                     Generals)
               General, you have to find out
               where they're making this gas.
               Burn it to the ground. Destroy
               it.

                             COLONEL DARNELL
               Ludendorff was last seen in
               Belgium --

                             GENERAL HAIG
                    (dismissive)
               We can't be seen sending troops
               into German-occupied Belgium when
               we're negotiating their surrender.

                               STEVE
               Sir, I saw   this gas with my own
               eyes. All    the men on the front
               line could   die on both sides
               unless you   --

                             GENERAL HAIG
               That's what soldiers do, Captain.
     Diana's shocked by the callousness.   Sir Patrick looks at
     her apologetically.

                             GENERAL HAIG
               What? Would you have us abandon
               the front altogether?

                             STEVE
               Pull the troops out. Send me in.
               With some strategic support, I
               could take Ludendorff and his
               operation out myself.

                              GENERAL HAIG
               Are you insane, Trevor? I can't
               introduce rogue elements this late
               into the game.
                             STEVE
               But, General --

     Before Steve can argue further, Sir Patrick speaks up --

                             SIR PATRICK
               Now more than ever, the armistice
               is of paramount importance, we
               must get it negotiated and signed.
               That is the surest way of stopping
               the war.

                             GENERAL HAIG
               You will do nothing, Captain
               Trevor. That's an order.

     Diana expects Steve to defy the General like she defied
     her mother, but --

               Yes, sir.    I understand, sir.

     Diana blinks, confused, astonished, disappointed.

                                DIANA
               I don't.

                    (warning)
               Diana. I know it's confusing --

                             DIANA
               It's not confusing.      It's
               unthinkable.

                             GENERAL HAIG
               I'm sorry, who did you say this
               woman was?

                    (appalled)
               I am not with you. You would
               knowingly sacrifice all those
               lives? Do they mean less than
               yours? Where I come from Generals
               don't hide in their offices like
               cowards. They fight alongside
               their soldiers. They die with
               them on the battlefield.

                             STEVE
               Diana. Enough.
                    (to Haig)
               My apologies, sir.

     Diana gapes at him, sickened, betrayed.

               You should be ashamed!
                    (to the room)

                             DIANA
               That's your leader? How could he
               say that? Believe that?

               This is Ares and he isn't going to
               allow a negotiation or a
               surrender. The millions of people

     Steve grabs hold of Diana's lasso, wraps it around his
     wrist and looks right into her eyes.

                    (then)
               And we're probably going to die.

     Steve's surprised that last part came out.    Diana's

     Steve and Diana move towards a shady PUB.    Diana squints,
     doesn't like the look of this place.

     Diana follows Steve into the seedy, dimly-lit pub. She
     gets a look at its rough `n tumble clientele and frowns.

                             DIANA
               These are the reinforcements?     Are
               these even good men?

                             STEVE
               Relatively good.

                             DIANA
               Relative to what?

     Steve and Diana move behind a GROUP of OFFICERS, out
     slumming. One of them, SAMEER (30s) dashing, exotic, has
     been holding court.

                             SAMEER
               ... In Africa, gentlemen, we had
               no such luxuries...

     The OFFICERS laugh, agree, as Steve and Diana approach.

                             SAMEER
               But the luxuries we have now.
               It's like we can't stop making
               money. My uncle, the Prince, and
               I would keep it all, but we want
               to extend the opportunity to a few
               good soldiers --

     Sameer turns and glares. Sameer smiles to the men around
     him -- Forgive my rude friend -- and excuses himself.

                             SAMEER
                    (to Steve)
               You bugger. I been greasing those
               peacocks all night...
                    (sees Diana)
               My goodness gracious, that's a
               work of art.

                              STEVE
               Sameer.   This is Diana.

     Diana studies the man with suspicion. And rightly so.
     He, meanwhile, is infatuated with her, all charm and
     smiles.

                             SAMEER
               Diana, call me `Sammy.'    Please.

                               DIANA
               Sammy.    Please.

     YELLING O.S., TWO MEN are having an argument that
     threatens to boil over. They tune it out as:

                             STEVE
               Sameer's a top undercover man.
               Can talk the skin off a cat in as
               many languages as you.

     Diana speaks Spanish.

                             DIANA
               [He doesn't look that impressive
               to me?]

                             SAMEER
               [You do to me. Your eyes, as soft
               as your smile...]

     Then in Chinese.

                             DIANA
               [And your eyes look like they want
               something.]

               [I know Chinese, too, tricky
               girl.]

     Then in Ancient Greek.

               Ancient Greek?]

     Sammy blinks.    He has no idea what she's saying.   Diana's
     unimpressed.

                             STEVE
               Where's Charlie?

     Sameer points at TWO MEN FIGHTING: a huge BRUISER
     beating the hell out of a smaller, younger man. Diana
     looks at the Bruiser and nods approvingly.

                             DIANA
               At least this Charlie is good with
               his fists.

                             STEVE
               That's not Charlie.

     The Bruiser lands a blow that knocks the smaller guy off
     his feet. Steve winces, nodding at the smaller guy.

                             STEVE
               That's Charlie.
     The two GRUNT at one another in Scottish slang, but the
     Bruiser sees Charlie's got friends -- and quickly leaves.
     The surprisingly cheerful CHARLIE (30s) gets to his feet.


65   INT. BRITISH PUB - MOMENTS LATER                               65

     Diana, Steve, and Sameer sit with bruised Charlie,
     Scottish and deeply drunk. A WHISKEY GLASS in each fist.
                             STEVE
               All right, Charlie?

                            CHARLIE
               Steven. May God put a flower on
               your head.

     Charlie downs the whiskey in a fluid sip.   Gone.

                             DIANA
               What were you fighting about?

                             CHARLIE
               I mistook his drink for mine.

     Diana looks at Steve, clearly concerned by his choice of
     reinforcements.

               This man is no fighter.

                             STEVE
               Charlie here's an expert marksman.
                    (off her look)
               He shoots people.

                             SAMEER
               From very far away.

     Charlie grabs a drink from a patron who isn't looking.

                             CHARLIE
                    (cheers)
               They never know what hit `em.

     There's a darkness behind Charlie's polite smile.

                             DIANA
               How do you know who you kill if
               you can't see their face?

                              CHARLIE
               I don't.   Better that way.

                             DIANA
               My aunt warned me about men like
               you.

                             CHARLIE
               Ain't the first time I heard that,
               lassie.

                             DIANA
               You fight without honor.

     Deep down, Charlie already knows that.

                             CHARLIE
               Don't get paid for honor.

                             SAMEER
               What's the job, Trevor?

                             STEVE
               Two days tops. We need supplies
               and passage to Belgium --

                             CHARLIE
               What's the going rate?

                             SAMEER

               What is this?

               front.

                             SAMEER
               Dropping her off?

               No offense, cherie, but I don't
               wanna get killed helping a girl
               out of a ditch, ya know what I
               mean?

     The Bruiser that Charlie was fighting returns, this time
     with several ROUGH-LOOKING FRIENDS!

                             BRUISER
               You got your friends.
                    (lifts up a gun)
               These are mine.

     Charlie's knocked to the ground! He doesn't see Diana
     move fearlessly, grabbing the BRUISER -- as if he weighed
     nothing -- and tosses him across the room!

     The Bruiser smashes into the wall, crumpling to the
     floor. His friends make a quick exit. Sameer is
     smitten, helping Charlie up.

                             SAMEER
               I am both frightened and aroused.

               Hello, all! Sorry, I'm late.   I

               That's what I was going to
               mention.

     Steve, Sameer, and Charlie STAND out of respect. Steve
     glares at Etta. She shrugs apologetically, raises a
     hand: Just listen, you'll see.

                             SIR PATRICK
               Sit, gentlemen. Please, sit.

     Sir Patrick pulls up a chair.

                             SIR PATRICK
               I assume you're here planning
               something that's either going to
               get you court-martialed or killed.

                             STEVE
               I assume you're here to stop us.

                             SIR PATRICK
               No.  Not that I like any of this.
                    (beat)
               As one of your American authors,
               Thomas Paine, so eloquently put
               it, `I prefer peace. But if
               trouble must come let it come in
               my time, so that my children can
               live in peace.'

     Diana nods, liking the sentiment.

                             SIR PATRICK
               Now nothing can jeopardize the
               armistice talks, but... I also
               believe in insurance. I'm here to
               help you. Unofficially, of
               course. What's your plan?

               Etta will run the mission out of

     Steve looks at her, no time to argue.

                             STEVE
               I'll take you to the front, but I
               can't make any promises about
               finding `your friend' any more
               than I can Santa Claus.

                             DIANA
               You won't need to. I'll know him

66   INT. PADDINGTON STATION - MORNING                             66

     DIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE hustling and bustling in the

     The atmosphere is weirdly JUBILANT and GUNG HO. Two
     sikhs ride through the station on bicycles, a WILLFUL
     LITTLE GIRL runs away from her mother, NURSES and WOMEN
     FACTORY WORKERS board the train, solemnly and
     purposefully.

     Diana takes in an array of HUMAN EMOTION. Mothers
     CRYING, fathers PROUD, sons COMMITTED and BRAVE, going
     off to war. GIRLFRIENDS are swept passionately into
     BOYFRIEND'S ARMS. DOGS are scooped up and hugged
     goodbye.

     Diana's eyes well as Steve checks his WATCH.

                             STEVE
               Train leaves in a few minutes.

     But Diana is engrossed with the joy around her. Steve
     looks around at what she's seeing, then back at her a
     beat longer than he would expect.

     Diana watches a MAN and his DAUGHTER walk away from an
     ICE CREAM VENDOR, eating an ICE CREAM CONE. Steve spots
     her eyeing the girl eating, curious.

                             STEVE
               Hungry?

     Diana nods, smiling. Steve buys TWO ICE CREAM CONES.
     Hands her one. She examines it, delighted.

                             DIANA
               It's cold.

                             STEVE
               It's ice cream.

     Diana tastes it -- her eyes go wide, the best thing she's
     ever tasted in her life.

                             DIANA
               It's wonderful.

                     vendor)
               You should be very proud.

     Steve pulls her away, sheepishly smiling and nodding at
     the confused vendor.

                             STEVE
               Forget the countries or the
               territory or the Generals.
                    (looks around)
               This is what we're really fighting
               for.

     Then Diana sees something odd as they board the train: a
     PUNCH & JUDY PUPPET SHOW, one puppet hitting the other --
     people LAUGHING at the violence -- and to her, that's
     very strange. Almost ominous.

     engulfs HUNDREDS OF ALLIED SOLDIERS disembarking, among
     them, Diana, Steve, Sameer, and Charlie. The new
     recruits are jubilant, singing "It's A Long Way To
     Tipperary" as they walk toward the waiting STEAMSHIP.
     Steve checks his watch again --

                             STEVE
               We've got to get a move on.   Chief
               won't wait.

                              DIANA
               Chief?

                              STEVE
               Smuggler.   Very reputable.

     Diana looks at the ragtag team Steve's assembled, shakes
     her head.

                             DIANA
               A liar, a murderer, and now a
               smuggler?

                             STEVE
               Careful, I might get offended.

                             DIANA
               I wasn't referring to you.

                             STEVE
               I went undercover and pretended to
               be something else, I shot people
               on your beach, and I smuggled a
               notebook. Liar, murderer,
               smuggler.
                    (beat)
               You still coming?

     Diana's confusion only grows as Steve LEADS a reluctant
     Diana and the group away from the soldiers, down a
     different path.
                                                     (CONTINUED)
                                                            69.
68   CONTINUED:                                                   68

     NURSES in the same uniforms as the clean and pristine
     ones who boarded the train are now soiled, stressed,
     wretched as they transfer the WOUNDED YOUNG SOLDIERS from
     a HOSPITAL SHIP to a TRAIN back to London. Steve
     purposely BLOCKS HER VIEW of the wounded men and women.
     Diana pushes him aside, taking in the horror and despair
     until she can look no longer. She grabs Steve's arm,
     firm.

     Steve looks at her, still thinking she's a bit crazy --
     but right now, she's absolutely right. He doesn't know
     how to stop it, but he nods at her just the same.

     The team moves towards a PASSENGER BOAT.


69   EXT. SHORELINE (BELGIUM) - DAY                               69

     Diana looks around warily as she walks off the boat.

     She follows the team across the docks where workers load
     and unload HORSES, some of the animals wear GAS MASKS.
     Diana registers the bizarre sight.

                             DIANA
               The gas will kill everyone...
               everything.

     Steve nods.

                             DIANA
               What kind of weapon kills
               innocents?

                              STEVE
               In this war?   Every kind.


70   EXT. CAMPFIRE - DUSK                                         70

     The sky grows DARK as the sun sets, Diana and the team
     walk up to a CAMPFIRE.

                              THE CHIEF (O.S.)
               You're late.

     THE CHIEF (30), a bright-eyed Native-American, steps to
     the fire, dropping more WOOD into it. He smiles.

                              STEVE
               Chief!

     He embraces Steve, then nods and smiles to Sammy and
     Charlie.

                                                   (CONTINUED)
                                                             70.
70   CONTINUED:                                                    70

                             SAMEER
               It's good to see you.

                               CHARLIE
               Aye.

     The Chief looks at Diana and, for the first time in the
     world of men, a man looks her square in the eye.

                               THE CHIEF
               Who is this?

     Chief extends a hand to shake. Diana grabs his wrist in
     a manner not unlike the Amazons. Chief responds,
     grabbing hers back, seemingly familiar with the gesture.
     Both Diana and Steve are surprised. Chief speaks his
     NATIVE TONGUE --

                             THE CHIEF
               Niitangio, Napi.

     And Diana understands.

                               DIANA
               I am Diana.

     Chief does not let go, still looking intensely in Diana's
     eyes. She grips tighter. Surprised, he steps back with
     one foot. To stay on balance, she does so with the
     opposite. Suddenly, Chief and Diana are arm wrestling,
     each trying to throw the other off balance. Then Chief
     laughs, letting go, conceding lest he find himself flat
     on his face.

                             THE CHIEF
               Where did you find her?

                               STEVE
               She found me.

                             DIANA
               I plucked him from the sea --

                             STEVE
                    (waving Diana to
                     stop)
               It's a long story.

     Diana looks at a pile of packages behind Chief, along
     with some GUNS --

                             STEVE
               British tea for the Germans.
               German beer for the British.

               both sides.

                             CHARLIE
               And guns.

     Charlie grabs a RIFLE, looks through the SCOPE and gives
     it a kiss -- like a father reunited with his long-lost
     child. The others help themselves to GUNS.

     Steve, Sameer, and Charlie take BOTTLES OF BEER they pay
     The Chief for.

                             THE CHIEF
                    (whispering to Diana)
               It's not even very good beer.

     Charlie's the only one that doesn't seem to mind.

     Steve looks at a MAP.

                             STEVE
               Ludendorff was last seen at the
               front --
                    (points on the map)
               -- near the Somme. Front's about
               three miles away. Chief will get
               us there.

                             THE CHIEF
               Then it's another day to safely
               cross it.

                             STEVE
               As soon as we have daylight, we
               move. I'll take first watch.

                             CHARLIE
               No need. I'll take it.     I never
               sleep on the job!


71   EXT. CAMPFIRE - NIGHT                                        71

     Charlie FAST ASLEEP -- along with Steve and Sameer,
     around the fire. Chief is heating cans of food. Diana
     turns to RUMBLING in the distance.

                             DIANA
               Strange thunder.

               That's the front out there. The
               evening hate.

     Chief hands her a can of beans. She tries it, frowns.
     Not all the food here is good. Chief counts his money.
     Diana eyes him warily --

                             DIANA
               So... who do you fight for in this
               war?

     Chief stuffs the money in his pocket.

                                THE CHIEF
               I don't fight.

                             DIANA
               You're here for profit then?
                             THE CHIEF
               Nowhere better to be.

                             DIANA
               Nowhere better to be than a war
               you don't take a side in?

                             THE CHIEF
               I have nowhere else and no side
               left. The last war took
               everything from my people. We
               have nothing left. At least here,
               I'm free.

                             DIANA
               Who took that from your people?
     Chief cocks his head to the side.      How could she not
     know?

                     almost casually)
               His people.

     Before Diana can ask more about that, Charlie suddenly
     starts to murmur, suffering through some kind of terrible
     nightmare.

     Diana watches until -- Charlie CRIES OUT, waking himself
     and Steve and Sameer. Diana reaches out to Charlie,
     compassionately --

                    (trying to help)
               What did you see?

     Gruff, Charlie pulls away from Diana --

               I'm fine, `right?
                    (mumbling)
               Bloody broad.

     Charlie gets up and grabs another BEER.    Chief looks at
     Diana.

                             THE CHIEF
               He sees ghosts.

     Steve takes a BLANKET --

                             STEVE
               You're going to get cold.     Here.

                                DIANA
               No, I'm --

     She's not cold, but Steve places the blanket on her
     shoulders anyway. The gesture isn't lost on Diana.    She
     nods, appreciative.


72   INT. GERMAN OPERATIONS BUNKER - NIGHT                         72

     SENTRIES patrol a fortified bunker deep in enemy
     territory.

     Ludendorff enters to find the GERMAN WAR COUNCIL, chief
     among them COMMANDER VON HINDENBURG.

                             VON HINDENBURG
               You were absent at the council
               meeting, General.

                             LUDENDORFF
                    (frustrated)
               You've begun negotiating the terms
               of the armistice.

                             VON HINDENBURG
               On the Kaiser's behalf.

                             LUDENDORFF
                    (accusatory)
               But on your insistence.

                    (to the council)
               We can easily win this war
               still...
                    (beat)
               If only you had faith in me.

     The way Ludendorff says it, he almost expects everyone to
     simply agree with him, but Von Hindenburg gets to his
     feet, angry --

                             VON HINDENBURG
               We don't. There are shortages of
               food, medicine, ammunition. Every
               hour we delay costs thousands of
               German lives.

                             LUDENDORFF
               One attack and the war is ours.
               As we speak, my chemist and her
               team are --

                             VON HINDENBURG
               We stand against you and your
               witch, Ludendorff! Enough!
                    (calming)
               Twenty-four hours from now this
               war will end. It is over.

     Ludendorff looks around, nods.

                             LUDENDORFF
               For all of you.

     Ludendorff turns and exits --

73   EXT. GERMAN OPERATIONS BUNKER - CONTINUOUS ACTION            73

     Ludendorff nods to Dr. Maru who throws a CANISTER OF GAS
     in.

     Maru watches curiously as Ludendorff then tosses a GAS
     MASK in. Von Hindenberg and the men look at the mask.

     Ludendorff closes the doors as the canister erupts.

     A COMMOTION within the room breaks out as the gas
     spreads. Unable to escape, the men desperately fight
     over the gas mask.

                             MARU
               The mask won't help.

                             LUDENDORFF
               Yes, but they don't know that.

      Ludendorff cracks open a CAPSULE of GAS, inhaling it.
      Again, it's a PAINFUL process -- again Ludendorff's veins
      BULGE and PULSATE.

      With heightened strength, Ludendorff presses against the
      doors -- the SCREAMS of the dying men in the bunker seep
      out. It's music to Maru. She can hear a HISSING as the
      gas scars the doors inside. Ludendorff pulls Maru away --

                              LUDENDORFF
                It's time to stage our
                demonstration for the Kaiser.

      DIANA, CHARLIE, SAMMY, and THE CHIEF follow STEVE down a
      MUDDY ROAD in the woods, the SOUNDS OF BOMBS in the b.g.

      Diana takes in the bleakness of the world. A cluster of
      villagers runs past. Fleeing from something. A BABY
      cries in its mother's arms. Diana stares -- hears
      SCREAMS ahead.

      IN A DITCH on the side of the road, TWO HORSES pulling a
      CART OF MUNITIONS (that has tipped) are stuck in the MUD.
      A SOLDIER whips the horses, trying to get them out.

                Those animals.     Why are they
                hurting them?

                              CHARLIE
                Because they need to move.    Like
                us.

                              DIANA
                But I can help them!

                              CHARLIE
                There's no time! C'mon, woman.

      Steve and the team jog down the road, Diana reluctantly
      following. A WAILING man is heard ahead.

      ON THE ROAD.

      Diana looks ahead to where a WOUNDED SOLDIER crying out
      in pain, surrounded by OTHER SOLDIERS trying to
      administer help (as best they can).

                               WOUNDED SOLDIER
                Oh, God.   God, help me! Please.

      He continues to CRY OUT.    Diana horrified.

                              DIANA
                That man... He's injured.

                              SAMEER
                There is nothing we can do about
                it, Diana. We must keep moving.

      AS THEY MOVED FORWARD, Diana looks ahead sees beyond the
      woods -- NO MAN'S LAND...

      PRE-LAP: The SOUNDS of RAIN and THUNDER, which BOOMS,
      then fades into the SOUNDS of GUNFIRE and EXPLOSIONS.


75    EXT. RAIN-SOAKED COUNTRYSIDE (BELGIUM) - DAY                      75

      Chief leads the team through the muddy Belgian
      countryside on their HANDS AND KNEES, bullets flying
      overhead. They stop at a DUGOUT ENTRYWAY to --


76    EXT. ALLIED TRENCH (BELGIUM) - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  76

      -- the ALLIED TRENCH at the BELGIAN FRONT.

      The team moves into the muddy trench, occupied by TOMMIES
      -- BRITISH SOLDIERS. Diana and the others get to their
      feet, bullets and shells whistling and EXPLODING
      overhead.

                                 DIANA
                Where are we?

                              STEVE
                You wanted me to take you to the
                war. This is it. The front
                lines.

                              DIANA
                But where are Ares' men -- the
                Germans?

      Charlie motions past the shelling and flying bullets.

                              CHARLIE
                Couple hundred yards that way.       In
                a trench like this one.

     Diana's dismay grows. She looks at the faces of the
     frightened, worn-down soldiers as they move through a
     seemingly endless, narrow passage carved deep into the
     earth, walled on either side by SANDBAGS and DIRT, which
     is quickly pooling into MUD at their feet.

                             SENTRY
               Chief!
                    (shouting down the
                      line)
               Oi! Chief's back!

                             TRENCH OFFICERS (O.S.)
               Chief!/Welcome back!/Nick of time!

     The Chief tosses out PACKS OF CIGARETTES, MATCHES, and
     other goods to grateful soldiers. Diana watches the
     MONEY exchange hands, then she hears the sound of
     anguished tears:

     A YOUNG MOTHER, MARIE (25), holds her DAUGHTER, NINA (6),
     sobbing to The Chief. Diana listens, though Steve can't
     understand:

                             MARIE
               [The Germans took everything --
               homes, food... the ones who
               couldn't escape... they took as
               slaves.]

                             DIANA
               [Where did this happen?]

     Marie points:   beyond the trench.

                             DIANA
                    (to Steve)
               We need to help these people.

     Steve looks across no man's land, shakes his head.

                             STEVE
               We need to stay on mission.

                             THE CHIEF
                    (nods to Steve)
               And there's no safe crossing for
               at least a day ahead.

     Charlie takes a swig from his well-worn FLASK.

                             CHARLIE
               Then what are we waitin' for?

               But these people are dying,
               they've nothing to eat. And in
               the village... Enslaved, she said.
               Women. Children.

                             STEVE
               There's nothing we can do about
               that.

                             DIANA
               How can you say that?   What is the
               matter with you?

                             STEVE
               This is no man's land, Diana. It
               means no man can cross it. This
               is the worst point on the entire
               front. This battalion has been
               here for nearly a year and they've
               barely gained an inch because on
               the other side are Germany's
               deadliest soldiers. Pointing
               machine guns at every square inch
               of this place. This is not
               something you can cross. It's not
               possible.

                             DIANA
               So we do nothing?

                             STEVE
               We are doing something. We can't
               save every person in this war.
               Besides, it's not what we came
               here to do.

     She steps away from the group, turning away from them.
     Steve thinks she's upset.

     But when Diana turns back to Steve, he sees her face of
     determination, wearing --

     ANTIOPE'S TIARA --

     AND FOR THE FIRST TIME -- WE REALLY SEE WONDER WOMAN!

                             DIANA
               No, but it's what I'm going to do.

     Diana moves past the team, stepping over the top of the
     trench --

                              STEVE
               DIANA, NO!!!
                                                              79.


77   EXT. WESTERN FRONT (BELGIUM) - CONTINUOUS ACTION               77

     -- onto the BATTLEFIELD.

     DIANA stands in her WONDER WOMAN ARMOR with THE GODKILLER
     SWORD in her hand, THE SHIELD on her back, and THE LASSO
     SHINING at her side.

     She surveys the battlefield.   It's quiet.    Empty.   She
     takes a step forward...


     IN THE GERMAN TRENCH

     A SOLDIER takes AIM at Diana -- and FIRES!


     ON THE BATTLEFIELD

     The bullet moves towards Diana. With her heightened
     perception, she watches it in SLOW MOTION, swatting it
     aside with her bracelet. She blocks another --


     IN THE ALLIED TRENCH

     Everyone watches Diana with awe.   Even Charlie has to
     admit --

                             CHARLIE
               How the hell'd she do that?


     ON THE BATTLEFIELD

     Diana continues walking across the battlefield, step-by-
     step, blocking bullets. Her pace begins to quicken --
     and then she starts to RUN.


     IN THE ALLIED TRENCH

     Steve's heart pounds as he watches Diana. He motions to
     the team. He can't believe he's about to do this, but --

                             STEVE
               She's drawing their fire!   Let's
               go!

     Steve and his team climb over the trench, leaving the
     hesitant British soldiers behind!

     THROUGH A GERMAN SCOPE

     Diana races TOWARDS them, knocking bullets aside!


     IN THE GERMAN TRENCH

     GERMAN SOLDIERS react, unsure of who or even what Diana
     is. One of the soldiers motions to others -- they lift a
     MORTAR, bringing it forward as the others continue to
     FIRE. Soldier after soldier joins in.


     ON THE BATTLEFIELD

     Diana runs, more bullets ricocheting off her bracelets.


     IN THE GERMAN TRENCH

     They FIRE a mortar into the air!


     ON THE BATTLEFIELD

     Diana uses her SHIELD to bat aside the MORTAR SHELLS --
     they EXPLODE around her!

     With her shield, Diana blocks the increasing barrage of
     bullets coming at her! ONE of TWO MACHINE GUN NESTS
     fires at Diana --


     IN THE ALLIED TRENCH

     Inspired, the British soldiers SURGE OVER THE TRENCH WITH
     A CHEER!


     ON THE BATTLEFIELD

     The SECOND MACHINE GUN NEST fires at Diana --

     She does her best to repel the machine gun fire, but
     together the two are SLOWING HER DOWN, taking a toll.

     Diana falls to one knee, then turns, grateful to see
     behind her --

     Steve, the team -- and the allied soldiers! Steve raises
     his rifle and takes out some of the shooters, giving
     Diana some relief.

     Charlie lays down cover fire as The Chief tosses Sameer a
     GRENADE.

     Sameer lobs it at the NEST ON DIANA'S RIGHT. The
     EXPLOSION knocks the machine gun off its base.

     The second nest continues to fire on Diana!

     Diana leaps up into the air, jumping down into the second
     nest! She lands inside behind the soldiers, spinning
     around -- slamming into them. She raises her shield and
     smashes it onto the machine gun, breaking it apart!

     Steve, the team, and the Allies POUR INTO THE GERMAN
     TRENCH, battling the soldiers within!

     Diana looks at the village of Veld ahead of them.   Grits
     her teeth.

                             DIANA
               We're not finished yet.

     While the allies clear the trench, Diana takes off
     through the rain and the mud toward the village! The
     team heads after her!


78   EXT. VELD - SECONDS LATER                                     78

     Diana and the team reach the village, taking cover as
     they're fired upon. Diana looks to Steve --

                              DIANA
               Stay here.   I'll go ahead.

     Before anyone can argue, she races towards the gunfire.

     Diana, sword at her side, shield on her back -- runs,
     avoiding gunfire and grenades!
     Steve leads the team, covering for them as they follow
     Diana. Steve fires --

                              STEVE
               Go!

     Diana jumps onto the wall of a building, springing off
     it, SMASHING through a WINDOW of another building -- the
     source of more gunfire!


     INT. BUILDING (VELD) - CONTINUOUS ACTION

     Diana lands in the middle of a group of ARMED GERMAN
     SOLDIERS. She goes into action, kicking a TABLE --
     smashing it into two soldiers!

     She deflects bullets with her bracelets, turning to the
     other soldiers -- sending them flying with her fists, her
     shield. She hits a SOLDIER, he FLIES through a window --


     EXT. TOWN SQUARE (VELD) - CONTINUOUS ACTION

     -- the soldier falls onto the street -- where we FIND
     Steve, Sameer, Charlie, and The Chief following Diana's
     trail.

     They watch as ANOTHER SOLDIER is thrown out of a window,
     then they round a corner -- and find themselves pinned
     down by gunfire.

     The Chief hands Steve a grenade -- he tosses it, blowing
     up the nearby shooters. As they continue to fight their
     way into Veld --


     INT. BUILDING (VELD) - CONTINUOUS ACTION

     Diana continues to fight her way through the building,
     breaking through a DOOR -- taking on more German soldiers
     inside!

     Diana rushes one, colliding into him -- using him as a
     shield as she crashes out of a LARGE GLASS WINDOW --


     EXT. TOWN SQUARE (VELD) - CONTINUOUS ACTION

     -- Diana lands on a nearby rooftop. Steve watches her
     run across it as he and the team head deeper into Veld,
     all in the same direction.

     Suddenly, Steve and the boys are pinned down from gunfire
     by a TANK.

     Charlie motions to a walkway between two buildings in
     front of the tank. The Chief throws a grenade -- Charlie
     shoots it, causing it to explode! The walkway falls,
     blocking the tank.

     Steve and the team make it to the center of the village
     to find a TANK surrounded by DOZENS OF SOLDIERS. Sammy
     throws more grenades, but it's not enough. The tank has
     them pinned down -- until --

     Diana rushes the tank, BARRELING into its side like a
     bull -- the tank is thrown end-over-end across the town
     square! The soldiers react in shock.

     Steve and the team use the opportunity to push forward.
     As the team flanks up against a building, they see locals
     LOCKED inside, crying out for help from behind CHAINED
     DOORS.

     IN THE TOWN SQUARE: Diana blocks bullets with her
     bracelets, soldiers surrounding and firing on her from
     all sides.

     Steve throws two CONVENTIONAL GRENADES -- blowing German
     soldiers by Diana sky high.

     Diana turns to see Steve joining her.

     As more soldiers pour in, one starts climbing the ladder
     up the BELL TOWER.


     BACK TO THE VILLAGERS

     trapped in the building -- the team breaks open the
     doors, letting them out.


     ANOTHER ANGLE

     Diana tosses the German soldiers around like rag dolls.

     A German has Steve in his sights until --

     Diana races in, breaking the German's gun and sending him
     to the ground. She takes out several soldiers around
     Steve.

     Diana continues to block bullets while Steve fires --
     they work side-by-side, until -- BANG!

     The German in the bell tower starts firing down at them.

     The team scatters, trying to help the villagers.

     Steve motions up --

                             STEVE
               Bell tower.

     Diana sees the SNIPER at the top of the bell tower.
     Steve motions to Charlie --

                             STEVE
               Charlie!

     Charlie pulls out his rifle, AIMS UP -- peering through
     the site. But he's shaking. Sweats. Sameer watches as
     Charlie FIRES!

     The bullet ricochets off the bell and gives away their
     position. The sniper turns against Charlie, Chief, and
     Sameer.

     The three flank against the wall, Sameer looks at
     Charlie, who is devastated.

                             SAMEER
               You don't miss.

                             CHARLIE
                    (stammers; lies)
               Bloody scope... lens is cracked.

     But the lens looks fine.

     Steve tries to take a shot at the bell tower, but he
     can't do so without exposing himself to the shooter.

                             DIANA
               Is there a way inside?!

     Steve looks at Diana, an idea forming.

                             STEVE
               There is if you jump!

                                DIANA
               It's too high.

     He taps her shield.   Diana looks at him, remembering
     Antiope's jump.

     Steve holds the shield PARALLEL TO THE GROUND.

     Diana runs toward Steve, JUMPS UP ONTO THE SHIELD -- and
     she launches herself high into the air!

     The sniper looks through his scope --


     HIS POV

     Diana leaping up AT him, gritting her teeth, angry --


     BACK TO SCENE

     Diana SMASHES into the sniper -- breaking apart part of
     the tower -- sending him flying to the neighboring
     rooftop below!

     CHEERS! The TOWNSPEOPLE gather, emerging from hiding,
     celebrating this heroic victory!

     Diana looks down at them -- Steve among the villagers, in
     absolute awe of Diana.


79   EXT. TOWN SQUARE (VELD) - DAWN                              79

     A PHOTOGRAPHER takes a DAGUERROTYPE of Diana, Steve,
     Charlie, Sameer, and The Chief standing in the village.

     FLASH.

     The photograph sees our team imbuing a sense of pride and
     accomplishment. Steve's face is turned towards Diana's,
     with a look of something more than admiration.

     Moments later, Diana walks with Sameer. They look back
     at Charlie, head hung low, shaken. Charlie fumbles with
     his flask, dropping it.

                             DIANA
               For all his talk of murdering
               people from afar, your shooter
               can't shoot.

                             SAMEER
               Not everyone gets to be who they
               want to be all the time. Me, I
               wanted to be an actor, not a
               soldier. But I'm the wrong color.

     Diana considers this, then she turns, sees The Chief with
     a small group of BELGIANS from the trench, including
     Marie and her family. All of them ragged, sleep-
     deprived, and starving, but hopeful. The Chief dispenses
     bread and cheese. Diana notices that no money changes
     hands. Steve walks to her.

                             DIANA
                    (to Steve)
               He doesn't charge them?

                             SAMEER
               Money isn't the only profit.
                    (beat)
               Everyone's fighting their own
               battles, Diana. Just as you are
               fighting yours.

     Diana studies Chief with new eyes, touched by the man's
     generosity. Her previous opinion of these men continues
     to come into question.

     A CHEER goes up from the liberated TOWNSPEOPLE who are
     busying themselves in preparation for a party to
     celebrate their heroes.


80   INT. INN (VELD) - FRONT DESK - DAY                           80

     Diana comes in to find Steve behind the front desk of the
     inn, on the TELEPHONE.

                             STEVE
                    (into telephone)
               Veld. Tiny village. It's
               probably not even on the --

     INTERCUT WITH:


81   INT. WAR OFFICE - SIR PATRICK'S OUTER OFFICE - DAY           81

     ETTA is on the other end of the call.

                             ETTA
               Found it.

     Steve sees Diana standing on the stairs. He picks up an
     extension and offers it. Diana listens in (it's her
     first time using a phone):

                             STEVE
               Have you found Ludendorff's
               operation?

                             ETTA
               Not yet, but we've located him.
               And lucky you, he's only a few
               miles away -- at German High
               Command.

     At first thought, Steve thinks:   That doesn't sound
     lucky.

                             STEVE
               German High Command?

     SIR PATRICK enters the room, overhearing...

                             ETTA
               Intel reports Ludendorff is
               hosting a gala -- a last hurrah
               before the Germans sign the
               Armistice. The Kaiser himself
               will be there. As will Dr. Maru.

                             STEVE
               Actually, that gala's perfect
               cover --

                             SIR PATRICK
                    (not liking the sound
                     of that)
               Captain Trevor, you are under no
               circumstances to attend that gala
               tomorrow night. We cannot risk
               jeopardizing the Armistice.

                             DIANA
                    (to Steve)
               You shouldn't be worried about
               upsetting the peace accord. Ares
               would never let that happen...

     Steve motions her to please stop talking about "Ares."
     Then Diana, a terrible realization.

                               STEVE
               What is it?

                             DIANA
               Of course... It makes complete
               sense. Ares developed a weapon,
               the worst ever devised.

                               STEVE
               Ares?    You mean Ludendorff.

     She turns and look at Trevor.

                            DIANA
               No. I mean Ares. Ludendorff is
               Ares.

     Steve's not sure what to believe at this point.

                               SIR PATRICK
               Steve?

                             STEVE
               Sir, this is our chance to find
               the gas and learn how Ludendorff
               plans on delivering it. Maybe our
               only chance. Our last chance --

                              SIR PATRICK
               I forbid it.   Do you hear me?
               Steve?

     A beat of silence as Steve makes a decision...

               I'm sorry, sir, you're breaking

                              SIR PATRICK
               Steve?   Are you there -- ?

     But Steve has clicked off.


82   EXT. PUB - COURTYARD (VELD) - NIGHT                            82

     The tables are crowded with VILLAGERS and all the food
     the Germans left behind. Beer flows. Tea lights
     twinkle. A FEMALE PIANIST plays, singing as couples
     dance. The atmosphere is warm and jovial.

     Diana and Steve stand at the edge of the crowd, unable to
     put the urgency of their mission aside and join in.

     Sameer approaches them with two tankards of ale.   Steve
     waves them off.

                             STEVE
               Drinks later, Sameer. I need you
               to rustle up me a German uniform.

     Sameer puts the ale in front of Steve and Diana despite
     his protest.

                             SAMEER
               Already done. Now you two need to
               relax. There's nothing we can do
               until tomorrow. You said it
               yourself, Steve.

     Sameer strolls off. Steve drinks.     Diana does, too,
     surprised by the flavor.

                              DIANA
               It's bitter.

                             STEVE
                    (agrees)
               It's an acquired taste.

     Diana smiles and nods, the world of men is an acquired
     taste.

                             STEVE
               It has hints of different flavors,
               if you look for them.

     Steve and Diana drink in unison.    She nods, seems to like
     it better.

     A young girl hands Diana a FLOWER.   She's moved.   So's
     Steve.

                               STEVE
               You did this.

                               DIANA
               We did.

                             STEVE
               You have dancing on `Paradise'
               Island?

                             DIANA
               Dance on Themyscira is more --

                               STEVE
               Interpretive?

                             DIANA
               Precisely.
                    (then)
               Perhaps you'd better show me.

     Diana puts the flower behind her ear then moves out on to
     the dance floor.

                               STEVE
               Excuse me?

                             DIANA
               If I'm going to a gala, I'll need
               to know how to --

                             STEVE
               You're not going to the gala.

                             DIANA
               Of course, I am. Why wouldn't I?

                             STEVE
               Because you don't know how to
               dance, for one thing.

                             DIANA
                    (re: the other
                     dancers)
               I would argue that they don't know
               how to dance.

     Steve finally smiles and moves out onto the floor to join
     her. He takes her left hand and moves his arm around her
     waist. It's the first time they've touched. Which
     they're both keenly aware of.

                             DIANA
               You're awfully close.

     Their faces are very near to one another's, neither makes
     a move to pull away.

                             STEVE
               That's kinda the point.

                               DIANA
               Ah.    I see.

     Diana moves a bit closer to Steve, smiles. The music
     changes as a NEW PIANIST begins a beautiful melody,
     breaking into song with an incredible TENOR VOICE.

     Diana and Steve look towards the piano and see that it is
     CHARLIE WHO IS PLAYING AND SINGING. Diana can't help but
     be surprised once again by these men.

     Sameer and The Chief join the people crowding around
     Charlie, smiling, laughing, grateful.

     As the emotional song continues, they sway for a beat,
     holding each other and then a SINGLE SNOWFLAKE falls.

     Diana looks up as more and more white ice falls from the
     sky, sprinkling her hair. She holds out a palm, CATCHING
     A FLAKE and sniffing it.

                             STEVE
               It's a snowfall.

                               DIANA
               It's magical.

     Steve takes it in, seeing beauty where she does.

                               STEVE
               You're right.

     Diana rests her head on Steve's shoulder. Steve can't
     remember loving anything as much as this feeling.

                             DIANA
               Is this what people do when there
               are no wars to fight?

                             STEVE
               This and other things.

                               DIANA
               What things?

               I don't know.    They... make
               breakfast.

                               DIANA
               What else?

                             STEVE
               Read the newspaper. Go to work --
                    (carefully)
               They... get married. Maybe have
               babies, grow old together.

                             DIANA
               What is it like?

                               STEVE
               No idea.

     But something in his eyes tells Diana he'd like to find
     out. Diana thinks she might, too. Steve pulls her in
     closer. She looks deep in his eyes.

                             DIANA
               Maybe... once I defeat Ares and
               war ends forever... there will be
               time to learn about... all kinds
               of things.

     The way Diana says it -- that look in her eyes -- for the
     very first time in the film Steve finds himself believing
     her story -- desperately wanting to believe it.

                             STEVE
                    (wistful)
               God, I hope you're right.

     Steve lays Diana gently down on the bed, brushing her
     hair from her neck and KISSING IT. Diana's eyes are wide
     and shocked by the ELECTRICITY of those LIPS ON HER SKIN.
     She looks up at him, runs her hands through his hair and
     pulls him to her, mouth-to-mouth, the most perfect,
     passionate FIRST KISS ever.

     ... Steve's TICKING WATCH on the nearby nightstand.

               A gracious gift.

               They called us heroes.

                              DIANA
               You are.

     Everyone looks at Diana. The way she says it, Sameer and
     Chief believe it -- and it feels good. Sameer smiles at
     Charlie -- who forces a smile back, struggling to agree.

                             STEVE
                    (to team)

               You would get lost without us.

                             SAMEER
               Yeah, we know Diana's capable of
               looking after herself, but I'm
               worried you wouldn't make it.
                             STEVE
               There's no more money, boys.

     Sameer pets his horse with a smile.

                             SAMEER
               We've been paid enough.
     The Chief nods, but Diana spots Charlie's hesitation.

                             DIANA
               If you're coming, Charlie, perhaps
               you'll sing more for us.
                    (then; the truth)
               I enjoyed it very much.

     Charlie brightens at a rare compliment from Diana.

                              SAMEER
               Ah!   Don't encourage him!

     Despite Sameer's protests, Charlie starts to SING LOUDLY --
     but joyfully -- as the team moves on.

     OFF Diana, moved by the continued goodness she's
     discovering within these unlikely men.

85   EXT. FOREST (BELGIUM) - DAY                                85

     Diana leads the men on HORSEBACK. They trail behind.
     Diana turns, smiles, unaware Steve's just told them all
     about her.

                             CHARLIE
                    (to the boys)
               That's the craziest story I ever
               heard!

                             SAMEER
               Wait. There's a whole island of
               women like her? And not a single
               man among them?
                    (beat)
               How do we get there?

                             STEVE
               You're not their type.

                             CHARLIE
               You're all going daft.

                             STEVE
               It's true... every word.

                             SAMEER
               And she thinks Ludendorff is Ares?
               The God of War?
                             CHARLIE
               And only by killing him will the
               war end?

                             SAMEER
               You saw what she did out there.
               The way she charged that machine
               gun nest. The way she took out
               that tower. Maybe it's true!

     Chief nods in agreement.

                             CHARLIE
                    (to Steve)
               You don't really believe all this
               rubbish, do ye?

     Steve wishes he does, but deep down he doesn't...
                                                            94.


86   EXT. FOREST/CHÂTEAU (BELGIUM) - DAY                            86

     Through the trees, still on HORSEBACK, Diana and the team
     see the WELL-GUARDED fortress that is German High
     Command. Steve uses FIELD GLASSES to survey the scene.

     Chauffeured LIMOUSINES go through a HEAVILY-GUARDED
     CHECKPOINT at the gate, behind it, a long line of cars
     delivering well-dressed GUESTS to the ENTRANCE of the
     château, a SINGLE SENTRY stationed there.

                             STEVE
               How the hell are we gonna get in?

                             THE CHIEF
               The way in is through the gate.

                             CHARLIE
                    (sarcastic)
               Thank you, Chief, for that ancient
               tribal wisdom, that's very
               helpful.

     The Chief gets off his horse, hands the reins to Sameer,
     then wanders off into the forest.

     Charlie looks through his scope:    several guards at the
     gate, but only one at the door.

                             CHARLIE
               If you could get through the gate
               I only see one guard at the door
               to distract.

                             STEVE
               It won't look at all suspicious
               when I come sauntering out of the
               woods on foot --

                             DIANA
               I could get in.

                             STEVE
               You're not going in.     It's too --

                             DIANA
               Dangerous?

                             STEVE
               I know how to do stealth -- been
               doing it my whole life. I'll
               follow them to wherever they're
               working on the gas or better yet
               find out where it is.

                    (beat)
               Plus, we can't make a scene.

                             DIANA
               I can be stealthy.

                             STEVE
               Diana, what you're wearing doesn't
               exactly qualify as `undercover.'

                             SAMEER
                    (attempting humor)
               I don't know, I'd say she was
               pretty under covered.

     Only Charlie laughs.

                             STEVE
                    (to Diana)
               There's no way to get you in. Let
               me scout it and report back.
               Worse case, we follow Ludendorff
               when he leaves and you can use
               that magic lasso of yours to get
               him to tell us where it is.

                             DIANA
               But as long as he's still alive --

                             STEVE
               You can't go into German High
               Command and kill anyone! You have
               to trust me, Diana.

     Suddenly, a gleaming, ROLLS-ROYCE LIMOUSINE pulls into
     the forest, The Chief in the driver's seat.
                             STEVE
                    (to The Chief)
               Where did that come from?

                             THE CHIEF
               Field over there is full of them.

                             SAMEER
               Can I drive it? Lemme drive it.
               I'll be your chauffeur!

     Steve looks at Diana.

                             STEVE
                    (pointedly)
               Diana. Please, stay put.

                                                             96.

     Steve climbs into the back seat and Sameer drives the
     limo off.

                             CHARLIE
               We should scout the area. In case
               we need to beat a hasty retreat.
               What do you think, Diana?

     But when they look for her, Diana isn't there.

                             CHARLIE
               Uh-oh.


87   EXT. CHÂTEAU - GERMAN HIGH COMMAND - MOMENTS LATER             87

     A CAR rolls past the CHECKPOINT GATE, another stops.
     GUARDS take an INVITATION from the driver, then wave the
     car on.


     IN THE NEXT CAR

     Sameer, wearing a TEA TOWEL AS A TURBAN on his head,
     watches the exchange, alarmed.

                             SAMEER
                    (talking through his
                     teeth to Steve)
               Steve...

     Steve in the back, decked out in his GERMAN UNIFORM.

                             SAMEER
               ... they have invitations.

     Sameer has no choice but to pull up to the guards. One
     of them holds out his hand, waiting for an invitation --
     but Sameer takes the surprised guard's hand with both of
     his!

                             SAMEER
               Dhanyavaad, Sahib. The Colonel
               and I wish many blessings and all
               manner of other things to fall
               upon your head --

     Thinking fast, Steve belligerently yells at Sameer,
     startling the guards.

                             STEVE
               And your head's empty! He wants
               my invitation, you idiot!


                                                      (CONTINUED)
                                                             97.
87   CONTINUED:                                                    87

     Sammy grovels to the guard, kissing his hand.   The guard
     tries to pull it away!

                             SAMEER
               I must apologize a thousand
               thousand times, my masters, for my
               most horrid, wretched, and
               unworthy soul has lost the
               Colonel's invitation!

     Steve checks his WATCH.

               STEVE                          SAMEER
     We drive hours through this   I am a snail! No, a bug!
     mud and filth! You're a       No, the dung of a bug --
     disgrace!

     The bewildered and uncomfortable guards shoo them on.

     As they drive, Sameer grins, glancing back at Steve.

                             SAMEER
               Blessings be upon us.

     Steve's smile fades when he sees soldiers setting up a
     VIEWING PLATFORM with ROWS OF SEATS. Steve doesn't know
     why.


     AT THE FRONT OF THE CHÂTEAU

     Sameer opens the LIMO DOOR for Steve.

                              STEVE
               Keep the car running, Sahib.   And
               no joy riding.

     Sameer smirks, bows. Steve heads to the château,
     watching him bowing and blessing to Germans. Steve
     shakes his head as he enters...


88   EXT. CHÂTEAU - GERMAN HIGH COMMAND - CONTINUOUS ACTION        88

     Diana, her cloak concealing her armor, watches from the
     shadows as Steve disappears inside.

     Frustrated, she searches the exterior of the château for
     another way in, but she's distracted by the insistent
     HONKING of a CAR HORN behind her.

     Diana turns to find a stunning, exquisitely dressed
     woman, FAUSTA GRABLES (30) in an extraordinary gown,
     leaning over her driver and honking the car's horn in a
     futile attempt to get the traffic moving again.

88   CONTINUED:                                                     88

                             FAUSTA
               I am not spending the entire
               evening out here, you idiots.
               Move your cars! I said, move!

     Infuriated, she marches up the long driveway toward the
     door.

     Diana steps out of the shadows and into Fausta's path.

                              FAUSTA
                    (snorting at Diana's
                     outfit)
               What are you supposed to be?!    Ha!
               Out of my way.

     But when Diana doesn't get out of her way -- and instead
     sidles up to Fausta to see if they're the same height...

                             FAUSTA
               What are you doing?
                    (then; calling out)
               Guards -- ?!

     Which is when Diana delivers a quick, judo-like CHOP to
     Fausta's neck -- where it meets her lovely shoulder --
     causing Fausta to collapse and lose consciousness. Off
     Diana, catches Fausta as she falls...

     For the first time in her life, Diana enjoys her own
     roguishness. Like one of the boys.

                             DIANA
                    (realizing)
               That was... fun.


89   INT. CHÂTEAU - FOYER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                       89

     Steve walks up the stairs, spotting the KAISER at the
     head of the RECEIVING LINE atop them. Ludendorff is next
     to him, talking intensely to Dr. Maru. As much as they
     try not to, people can't help but stare at Maru.

                             MARU
               They're starting to ask where Von
               Hindenburg and the others are.

                             LUDENDORFF
               Soon it won't matter.

                             MARU
               But, General --

                             LUDENDORFF
               We continue as planned. Now go.
               I have people to tend to beyond
               you.

     Maru is taken aback by his firmness. Feels eyes staring
     at her. She's used to rejection, but not from him.

     She nods and breaks   off, moving into the GRAND BALLROOM.
     An ORCHESTRA plays,   COUPLES waltz, CHANDELIERS blaze.
     The room is full of   OFFICERS, their WIVES and prominent
     CIVILIANS in formal   wear.

     Maru moves to a FIREPLACE, staring at the fire.

                             STEVE
                    (to Maru)
               Excuse me.

     Maru turns to face Steve, holding TWO GLASSES OF
     CHAMPAGNE -- he offers her one.

                              MARU
               I don't drink.
                    (faintly recognizing
                     him)
               Have we met?

                             STEVE
               No, but I've been watching you.
               Following your career, I mean.
               You're Dr. Isabel Maru. The most
               talented chemist in the German
               Army. I'm a fan.

     Steve keeps one eye on Ludendorff.    Maru notices.   He
     covers --

                             STEVE
               I hope I'm not crossing a line.    I
               hear you and General Ludendorff
               are very close.

                             MARU
               We work well together, yes.

                             STEVE
                    (flirting)
               I'm sure he provides a great deal
               of support for you and your work,
               but having someone like me behind
               you -- I could provide a lot more.

     She's not falling for the man, but there's something
     about him... a faint recognition --

                             MARU
               And who are you?

                             STEVE
               A man who would show you the
               appreciation a genius like
               yourself deserves.

     Maru stares into the fire, captivated.

                             STEVE
               I love fire, don't you? It's like
               a living act of entropy. The
               ultimate weapon of destruction,
               reminding us that, in the end,
               everything returns to the ash it
               once came from. There's something
               reassuring about it.
                    (stares into Maru's
                     eyes)
               I see all of that in your eyes.

     Maru can't help but stare back deeply into Steve's eyes,
     surprised to find her heart racing. For a brief moment,
     she's unsure of what she's feeling.

                              STEVE
               Perhaps you could show me what
               you're working on. I hear it's
               extraordinary.

     Steve's about to get the answers he needs when -- DIANA,
     in Fausta's gown, MAKES HER ENTRANCE, at the top of the
     stairs -- her uniform underneath, the GODKILLER peeking
     out from the back of her dress, the hilt looking like a
     piece of JEWELRY. Heads turn at the stunning Amazon.

     Steve's completely torn, does he stay and gets his
     answers from Maru -- or stop Diana from getting to
     Ludendorff? Maru makes the decision for him --

                             MARU
               I appreciate your interest in my
               work, but I am loyal to General
               Ludendorff. Besides, I see now
               your attention is elsewhere.

     DIANA AND LUDENDORFF'S EYES MEET. It is an INTENSE
     moment. She examines him, trying to confirm with her own
     eyes that he is Ares.

     Steve desperately wants to get to Diana, the tension
     thick: What is she going to do?

     Seeing the most beautiful woman in the room, Ludendorff
     can't help but give Diana a courtly bow, kisses her hand.

                              LUDENDORFF
                Enjoying the party?

                              DIANA
                     (eyes narrow)
                I confess, I'm not sure what we're
                celebrating.

                              LUDENDORFF
                A German victory, of course.

     He offers her hand to dance.       She takes it, sizing him
     up.

                               DIANA
                Victory?   When I hear peace is so
                close?

                              LUDENDORFF
                `Peace is only an armistice in an
                endless war.'

     Diana understands, tenses.

                                DIANA
                Thucydides.

                              LUDENDORFF
                     (happily surprised)
                You know your Ancient Greeks.
                They understood that war is a god.
                One that requires human sacrifice.
     Her heart pounds.

                              LUDENDORFF
                And in exchange, war gives man
                purpose. A chance to rise above
                his petty, mortal little life and
                be better than he is.


     ON DIANA

     There's no question now:    This is Ares.

                              DIANA
                Only one of the many gods believed
                in that... and he was wrong.

     She desperately wants to reach for her sword, but he's
     still holding her.

               You know nothing about the gods --

                             SOLDIER #1 (O.S.)
               General?

     Ludendorff looks over at a soldier.    He checks his watch,
     relaxes his hold on her.

                             LUDENDORFF
               My apologies. You'll excuse me.
                    (beat)
               Enjoy the fireworks.

     Just as he turns his back on Diana, she reaches for her
     SWORD. She's about to draw it when -- Steve gets between
     them, facing her! He pulls Diana away from Ludendorff,
     taking her hand -- dancing with her as cover.

                             DIANA
               What are you doing?

     The dancing is anything but what it was in last time.

                             STEVE
               You agreed to wait.

                             DIANA
               You agree to do things all the
               time then don't do them. Let me
               go --

                             STEVE
               You can't kill Ludendorff inside
               German High Command. The
               Armistice won't be signed.
                             DIANA
               It won't matter --

                             STEVE
               What if you're wrong, Diana?    What
               if there is no Ares?

                             DIANA
                    (realizes)
               You don't believe me.

                             STEVE
               I can't let you do this.

                             DIANA
               What I do isn't up to you.

      Reminding Steve of her strength, Diana uses only her
      fingers to PUSH Steve away -- as if he were nothing --
      and he almost loses his footing.

      Diana looks for Ludendorff -- he's left!   She runs out.
      Steve follows.


90    EXT. CHÂTEAU - MOMENTS LATER                                  90

      Diana exits, looks around, spotting Ludendorff, Maru, and
      the soldiers entering one of the château's TOWER HOUSES,
      which is quickly secured behind him.

                               STEVE
                Diana!

      Diana starts running towards it when -- the sound of a
      MISSILE launching from the guardhouse. Then another.
      And another.

                               STEVE
                The gas.

      Their eyes follow the PATH OF THE MISSILES -- she
      understands, horrified, see the target is --

                               DIANA
                The village.

      Diana runs off towards the village while the audience at
      the château behind her bursts into APPLAUSE and CHEERS.


90A   EXT. FOREST - CONTINUOUS ACTION                              90A

      Sameer has regrouped with Chief and Charlie. Chief and
      Sameer look up at SMOKING TRAILS in the sky, left by the
      missiles, while Charlie peers through his SCOPE at the
      château.

                              SAMEER
                They're cheering.

      Suddenly, they spot Diana racing through the forest on
      her HORSE.

                I see him.

                Wherever he goes you follow him.

      Steve chases after Diana!

      Racing through the woods in the distance, Diana now in
      her armor on horseback -- her torn off dress discarded,
      floating behind her.

      She arrives at the outskirts of the village, which is now
      entirely engulfed in a THICK, COLORED CLOUD OF GAS.

      She dismounts, enveloped by the gas. She can't see
      anything in front of her, but knows immediately that all
      the villagers have perished. She has trouble breathing,
      her EYES RED AND STINGING. BLISTERS on her skin.

                               DIANA
                No.   Oh, no, no, no.

      Diana points at Steve, her blisters HEALING before his
      eyes.

               You stopped me from killing Ares

               Everything you've said to me is a
               lie.
                    (fury growing)
               But I see the truth now. It isn't
               just the Germans that Ares has
               corrupted. It's you, too. It's

               It's a signal from The Chief.
               They followed Ludendorff --

     Diana rides off in a fury.

                             STEVE
               Diana?!

     Steve starts to get his horse, then sees an abandoned
     MOTORCYCLE on the road into town and changes his mind.


92   EXT. SECURITY POST (BELGIUM) - MOMENTS LATER               92

     Along the road, Diana comes upon a GERMAN SECURITY POST:
     THREE GERMAN SENTRIES but she refuses to stop. She
     KNOCKS the Germans aside like bowling pins.

        The last wash of sunlight FADES as NIGHT takes over.
        Diana rides on horseback through the countryside at
        amazing speed -- driven, possessed by rage.

        She heads towards Charlie, Sameer, and The Chief -- who
        are all at a FIRE Chief has set, used to create the SMOKE
        SIGNALS. He points to the top of a hill. She rushes
        past them and up the hill!

        Cresting the hill, we see an AIRFIELD -- she heads down
        towards it.

        Steve isn't far behind her, racing past the team!


95      EXT. OUTSIDE THE AIRFIELD (BELGIUM) - CONTINUOUS ACTION       95

        As Diana storms towards the airfield, her eyes land on
        the CONTROL TOWER, where she sees --

        LUDENDORFF on the balcony, looking out over the airfield,
        a hive of activity.

        She charges the tower, flipping off her horse and over a
        BARBED WIRE FENCE -- she takes out more Germans --
        slashes through a SECOND BARBED WIRE FENCE -- fights to
        the tower and --

        Diana lassos a soldier on the balcony, yanking him down
        then leaping up to the tower herself!

        Ludendorff turns as Diana arrives, wielding the

                  Nice to see you again. This is a

        He aims his GUN at her --

                But I have things to do.

      -- Ludendorff FIRES at Diana! She blocks the bullet with
      her bracelet, ricocheting it back at Ludendorff's gun!
      It explodes in his hand! He cries out in pain, shocked!

      Diana lowers her smoking bracelet, looking him in the
      eyes -- assuming he knows who she is now after that
      display of power.

                              DIANA
                You know why I'm here. I am Diana
                of Themyscira, daughter of
                Hippolyta.

      Ludendorff turns away from Diana, cracking open a BLUE
      CAPSULE. He inhales -- it's painful but powerful, veins
      bulging.

100   EXT. CONTROL TOWER - WALKWAY - CONTINUOUS ACTION            100

      Diana sees Ludendorff's veins bulging, almost
      supernatural -- her eyes widen with confirmation.

      Diana moves quickly, thrusting the Godkiller at him. He
      dodges it. She strikes him in the face with her fist.
      They trade blows.

      He grabs a BAYONETTED RIFLE mounted on the wall.
      Ludendorff uses the rifle as A GUN, A SPEAR, and A SWORD.
      He HITS Diana again and again -- but Diana strikes back
      with such FORCE that he flies backwards through the
      WINDOW and onto the narrow walkway outside.

      Ludendorff struggles to his feet --


101   EXT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      101

      Diana CHARGES AGAIN. Ludendorff manages to escape being
      gored by CLIMBING UP TO THE TOWER ROOF.

      Ludendorff stands, holding his bayonet, as Diana LEAPS up
      on the roof to join him -- and the BATTLE RAGES on, SWORD
      AGAINST BAYONET, both so close to plummeting to the
      ground with every volley.

      But then Ludendorff lands a BLOW that sends Diana and his
      bayonet sliding over the roof's edge. She manages to
      grip the ledge but loses the Godkiller.

      Pulling herself back up with incredible effort she sees
      that LUDENDORFF HAS THE GODKILLER.

                              LUDENDORFF
                As magnificent a creature as you
                are, you are no match for me.

      WITH VEINS PULSATING BLUE, LUDENDORFF SWINGS THE SWORD
      DOWN TO DELIVER THE KILLING BLOW --

      But Diana BLOCKS it with her bracelets!

                              DIANA
                We'll see about that.

      Ludendorff STRIKES AGAIN AND AGAIN until Diana grabs the
      blade with her BARE HANDS.

      It cuts deep, drawing blood, she CRIES OUT in pain.

      Summoning impossible strength, she grips the blade and
      SHOVES it back with such force that Ludendorff loosens
      his grip. For the first time we see that he is afraid.

      Diana stands over Ludendorff, raising the GODKILLER.

                              DIANA
                I, daughter of Hippolyta, came
                here to complete the mission of
                the Amazons by taking your life,
                and ridding mankind and my people
                of you -- forever!

      Diana PLUNGES THE GODKILLER INTO LUDENDORFF'S BODY. His
      body crumbles to the ground, the blue in his veins fading
      away like a light going out!
      ARES IS DEAD!

      She breathes heavy, takes in the victory, reveling in it.
      Her mission accomplished. Her mother would be proud.
      Antiope. All of the Amazons.

      The battlefield is quiet. A storm begins to simmer in
      the sky. Then she hears a GERMAN COMMANDER screaming at
      his troops.

      Her brow knits with confusion.    Diana looks out over the
      airfield -- her face falls.

      HUNDREDS of "HELLMEN" SOLDIERS wearing strange customized
      GAS MASKS emanate from Dr. Maru's lab, working with
      HUNDREDS OF GAS BOMBS.

      To Diana's horror, nothing has changed.   Ares may be dead
      but --

      WAR CARRIES ON.

                              STEVE (O.S.)
                Diana!

      Steve is on the balcony below.

                              STEVE
                Diana?

      Relieved she's okay, Steve sees Ludendorff's body on the
      edge. Diana turns to him, lost...

                              DIANA
                I killed him. I killed Ares but
                nothing stopped. You kill the God
                of War, you stop the war.

      Steve registers her confusion, but follows her gaze to
      the growing threat below. No time to explain --

                              STEVE
                Right... Then we've got to do
                something about it.

      She leaps down to Steve, eyes wide with shock.

                              DIANA
                No! Steve. All of this should
                have stopped. The fighting. It
                should have stopped. So why are
                they doing this?!

      Steve sees the crisis on her face, forcing himself to
      slow down and tune into it -- sad knowing the reality
      Diana's about to face. His heart breaks for her.

                              STEVE
                Diana, I'm sorry... I know you
                thought -- I hoped it, too -- but
                I knew --

                              DIANA
                You knew what?!

                              STEVE
                That it might not be that simple.

                              DIANA
                But Ares is dead. They don't have
                to do this anymore. So why would
                they?!

      Steve finally says what he hasn't had the heart to say
      all along.

                              STEVE
                Because maybe people aren't...
                just good, Diana. Ares or no
                Ares. Maybe it's... just them.

      She looks out at them. The truth slowly sinking in as
      she tries to understand -

                              DIANA
                No... It can't be... Everything I
                saw? They were killing each
                other. Killing people they can't
                even see... Killing children.
                Like it was nothing... It had to
                be him!! It can't be them!

                               STEVE
                Diana, sometimes people are
                complicated --

      Diana's disbelief begins to turn to anger.

                              DIANA
                My mother was right. She said
                `the world of men don't deserve
                you.'
                      (beat)
                That's why she left. They don't
                deserve our help.

      Steve knows they're out of time.

                              STEVE
                It's not about whether they
                deserve it or not. It's about
                what you believe. You think I
                don't get it? All I've seen out
                there? I wish I could tell you
                that there was one `bad guy' to
                blame. Maybe we're all to blame.
                But that doesn't mean we shouldn't
                try to do better.
                     (beat)
                And if you believe this war should
                stop, Diana, if you want to stop
                it, then help me stop it. Now.

      Diana still isn't there.

                              STEVE
                If we don't, they're going to kill
                thousands more.
                              (MORE)

                Don't give up on them.   Don't give
                up on me.

      Diana doesn't respond.   She isn't there yet.

                             STEVE
                Please. We gotta go...
                     (beat)
                I have to.

      It kills Steve to release her hand, but he has no choice.
      He has to. He does and can only look back, hoping she'll
      follow.

      Diana's left alone, everything she ever believed in
      destroyed.

      She watches as Steve runs off --


102   EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION              102

      Steve joins the team as they arrive and regroup --

                               SAMEER
                     (to Steve)
                Where's Diana?

                              STEVE
                We're on our own.

      Despite their hesitation and confusion about that, the
      team follows Steve towards the hangar --


103   EXT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                         103

      Diana takes in a breath, SMELLS the CHEMICALS in the air,
      HEARS the sounds across the AIRFIELD -- she has become
      hyper aware of the harshness of the world around her.

      Diana turns, seeing a FIGURE THROUGH the windows looking
      at Ludendorff's plans. For a brief moment, she thinks
      it's Steve.

                               DIANA
                Steve?

      The figure pauses, then looks over at Diana.    Diana
      wonders: Who is it?

                I've been waiting for you to see
                the truth.

      She looks closer, a shiver up her spine -- confusion
      overwhelms Diana as she sees it's --

                               DIANA
                Sir Patrick?

      Sir Patrick is there, like a dream -- or a nightmare --
      calmly gazing over at Diana THROUGH the glass.

                              SIR PATRICK
                You're right, Diana. They don't
                deserve our help.
                     (beat)
                They only deserve destruction.

      Diana freezes.

                               DIANA
                       You're him.
                You.

                              SIR PATRICK
                I am. But I'm not what you
                thought I was. You blame me, but
                the truth is...

                ... all of this -- I did none of
                it.

      Alarmed, Diana reaches for her sword -- but her hand
      grasps at nothing -- she quickly realizes it's still in
      Ludendorff! Diana leaps OUT OF FRAME to retrieve it!

      Sammy points out over the airfield at --

      up the pace.

      Steve and the team see soldiers loading bombs in the back
      of the plane. Steve motions to the team and they head
      around the back of the hangar.


105   INT./EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTINUOUS ACTION                        105

      Diana leaps down from above, the GODKILLER back in her
      hands -- she circles the tower like a tiger, looking
      THROUGH the glass -- but Sir Patrick remains very calm.

                              SIR PATRICK/ARES
                I am not your enemy, Diana. I am
                the only one who truly knows you.
                And who truly knows them as you
                now do. They have always been,
                and always will be weak, cruel,
                selfish, and capable of the
                greatest horror...

      As he speaks, Diana holds the sword with TWO HANDS,
      trying to regain her confidence but struggling.

      Stepping in the doorway, he vanishes.    She looks around.
      Finds he's suddenly outside.

                              DIANA

                I am Diana of Themyscira, daughter
                of Hippolyta... and I am here to
                complete her mission --

      Diana cocks back her sword for battle when Sir Patrick
      disappears again -- reappearing behind her. She spins
      and plunges the GODKILLER into him --

      Sir Patrick simply holds up his hand and the sword
      DISINTEGRATES INTO A CLOUD OF DUST, right down to the
      hilt! Diana can't believe it --

                 is not the Godkiller.
                      (truly feels her
                       shock)
                 You are. Only a god can kill

                 Zeus left the daughter he had with

       Steve and the team blend in with the crew working on the
       plane.
                                                            115.


107AA   EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTINUOUS ACTION                          107AA

        Sameer boards the plane while Steve moves to the front
        wheel, trying to get a better look at the plane's
        position.

        The Chief spots soldiers examining a MAP just inside the
        hangar. As they walk away, The Chief sneaks in --


107E    INT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      107E

        The lasso is still tight around Sir Patrick, crackling.
        Diana holds it, still unsure what to think --

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                  I am not the God of War, Diana. I
                  am the god of truth... All I ever
                  wanted was to show my father how
                  evil his creation was. But he
                  refused.

        As Sir Patrick runs his finger along the lasso, a SURGE
        of energy runs from his hands and down towards Diana --
        into her, causing her to see FLASHES OF THE PAST. Each
        is like a pulse that fades and returns us to the scene at
        hand.


107EA   FLASHBACKS - EXT. NO MAN'S LAND - DAY                      107EA

        We PUSH THROUGH the bleakness of the world.

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)
                  Mankind stole the world from us.
                  They ruined it, day-by-day.

107EB   EXT. MOUNT OLYMPUS - NIGHT                                 107EB

        Ares falling to the Earth... His armor falling off...

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)
                  And I, the only one wise enough to
                  see it, was left too weak to
                  destroy them myself...


107EC   EXT./INT. TBD - NIGHT                                      107EC

        Somewhere dark, ARES shivering, powerless... the remnants
        of his armor CRACKING and BREAKING APART around him.

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)
                  All these years, I've struggled.
                  Whispering into their ears...


107ED   INT. HANGAR - DR. MARU'S LAB - DAY                        107ED

        Maru at her workbench. The SPECTRAL FORM of SIR PATRICK
        whispering silently to her, unseen by anyone. A STRANGE
        WIND passes as he does. Her eyes light up. She starts
        mixing chemicals frantically.

                                SIR PATRICK (V.O.)
                  Ideas. Inspiration. For weapons.
                  Formulas. But I don't make them
                  use them... they start these wars
                  on their own.


        END FLASHBACKS.

107EF   INT. CONTROL TOWER - NIGHT                                107EF

        The FLASHBACKS FADE and we RETURN TO Diana's stunned
        face.

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                       (enjoying the
                        revelation)
                  All I do is orchestrate an
                  armistice I know they will break,
                  in the hope they will destroy
                  themselves. But it's never been
                  enough...
                       (beat)
                  When you first arrived I was going
                  to end you, Diana. Then I felt
                  something I haven't for thousands
                  of years. Stronger.

        Sir Patrick clenches his fists.   His neck pulses.

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                  It was your power. Healing me
                  more than you could ever hurt me.

        Diana's eyes narrow, trying to understand.    Sir Patrick's
        hands begin to FLICKER with FIRE --

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                  And I knew that if only you could
                  see what the other gods
                  couldn't...

                                                        (CONTINUED)

107EF   CONTINUED:                                              107EF

        Sir Patrick runs his finger along the lasso, energy
        arcing down the lasso and into Diana! As it hits her --


107EG   VISION - EXT. NO MAN'S LAND - DAY                          107EG

        -- they are transported to the barren, war-torn No Man's
        Land

                                 SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)
                  All the suffering. All the pain
                  and destruction they create. You
                  would join me.

        Diana looks around her.

          SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)        SIR PATRICK/ARES (V.O.)
        With out powers combined,         (ALT)
        we could finally end this.     With our powers combined,
                                       we could finally end them.

        The barren no man's land transforms into a lush, "Garden
        of Eden" -- like Themyscira itself!

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                  We could return the world to the
                  paradise it was before them.
                       (beat)
                  And there would be absolute peace,
                  Diana. Forever.

        CLOSE ON DIANA

        taking it in.
        Sir Patrick smiles, pleased.

        But Diana resists.

                                 DIANA
                        (struggling)
                  No... No, I'd never be a part of
                  that.

        And like that --


107EH   INT. CONTROL TOWER - NIGHT (REALITY)                       107EH

        The VISION around Diana VANISHES, they are "back" in the
        control tower.
                                                            118.


107D   EXT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR - CONTINUOUS ACTION                   107D

       Steve tries to pry open a panel on the plane, looking for
       a way to sabotage it somehow -- when a German soldier
       approaches Steve, suspicious. The German is about to
       yell when -- THUMP!

       Charlie lowers the butt of his rifle onto the German.
       Steve nods in appreciation then -- notices a CHILL as the
       wind starts to rise.

       Steve looks over, his face grows tense -- DR. MARU
       approaches the plane for inspection with MORE SOLDIERS.

       They retreat to the shadows!


107B   INT. BOMBER PROTOTYPE - CONTINUOUS ACTION                    107B

       Sameer moves past ROWS OF BOMBS already loaded.   He spots
       something -- a TIMER wired to the bombs!


107C   INT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR - CONTINUOUS ACTION                   107C

       The Chief examines the map, horror covers his face when
       he sees the plane's target: LONDON.


       INT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION

       Sir Patrick looks angered -- he almost had her.   His eyes
       narrow.

                               SIR PATRICK/ARES
                 Oh, Diana... my dear sister... I
                 don't want to fight you --
                      (beat)
                 -- but if I must...

       He quickly GRABS the lasso -- and a VIOLENT ERUPTION OF
       ENERGY ERUPTS -- AND THE CONTROL TOWER EXPLODES!!!


107F   EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTINUOUS ACTION                            107F

       A DEAFENING explosion erupts across the airfield,
       demanding everyone's attention!

       It's overwhelming and chaotic, putting the soldiers in
       panic mode: They're under attack!

       Steve and the team react, unable to see what caused it,
       retreating to the shadows to find out --

                                 CHARLIE
                 Hurry up!    They're onto us!

                               STEVE
                 Sammy, let's go!

       Dr. Maru turns to A THREE-MAN CREW -- PILOT, CO-PILOT,
       and the BOMBARDIER. She calls out --

                               DR. MARU
                 Forget about them! Come on, move!
                      (they hesitate)
                 Go now!


107G   EXT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      107G

       Diana lands on the ground, rolling across it.


108    EXT. AIRFIELD - RUNWAY - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  108

       Steve and the team race across the airfield, searching
       for cover.


107G   EXT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      107G

       Diana pushes herself up off the ground, gazing over at
       Sir Patrick, who simply floats down -- burning debris all
       around them.

       Getting to her feet, Diana runs towards Sir Patrick.


       CLOSE ON SIR PATRICK

       calmly looking out at the DESTRUCTION and Diana, he
       flicks his hand -- through his sheer force of will, Sir
       Patrick lifts the TOWER DEBRIS around Diana!

       Girders rise, toppling over on either side of Diana as
       she races towards Sir Patrick! Diana dodges them,
       running through the gauntlet -- gazing up as a LIGHT
       shines down, toppling towards her -- Diana leaps out of
       the way!


108    EXT. AIRFIELD - RUNWAY - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  108

       Steve and the team take cover behind SEVERAL CRATES.
                                                            120.


107G    EXT. CONTROL TOWER - CONTINUOUS ACTION                      107G

        Diana throws her lasso at Sir Patrick, but he holds his
        hands up and blasts it back!

                                 SIR PATRICK/ARES
                  Oh, my dear.   You have so much to
                  learn.

        Diana lassos a GIRDER, swinging it back at Sir Patrick --
        but he hovers above it! The debris smashes into a gas
        tank, exploding!


109     EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTINUOUS ACTION                            109

        Fighting through the growing storm, Diana races towards
        Sir Patrick -- he raises his hands like a conductor,
        ripping chunks of the tarmac up!

        Diana avoids one -- smashes through another -- then leaps
        in the air as a MASSIVE CHUNK OF THE EARTH rises -- Diana
        leaps into the air, towards Sir Patrick --


109A    EXT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  109A

        Hidden behind the crates, Steve and the team remove their
        masks and see Diana and Sir Patrick battling! Steve
        reacts to Sir Patrick levitating!

                                CHARLIE
                  What are we going to do?

                                STEVE
                  There's not much we can do... if
                  that's what I think it is.

        Steve looks to the plane.

                                STEVE
                  But we can stop that plane.


109AA   EXT. AIRFIELD - CONTINUOUS ACTION                         109AA

        Diana leaps at Sir Patrick, but she blasts her back under
        the hovering CHUNK OF EARTH!

        Sir Patrick motions, SENDING the chunk CRASHING DOWN TO
        THE GROUND -- but Diana zips out of the way -- in a blur,
        she slams into Sir Patrick, sending him flying --

        catching himself, gazing up, crackling with LIGHTNING.


109B    EXT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  109B

        Charlie peers through is SCOPE at the plane...

                                CHARLIE
                  If we radio ahead? We can ask Air
                  Corps to shoot her down.

                                STEVE
                  No, if it crashes, it'll wipe out
                  everyone for fifty square miles.
                  We gotta ground it.

                                SAMEER
                  Bad news. It's on a timer.    If we
                  ground it here, same thing.

        Steve looks over at Diana then the plane -- and he
        realizes what he has to do...

                                STEVE
                  Is it flammable, Chief?

                                THE CHIEF
                  Yeah, she said it was hydrogen?
                  It's flammable.

                                 STEVE
                  I need you guys to clear me a path
                  to that plane.

                                CHARLIE
                  No, Steve!

                  Steve!

        But Steve is already running towards it.    The team go
        into action!


109C    INT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR - CONTINUOUS ACTION                  109C

        Diana grabs a LARGE WOODEN CRATE and throws it up at Sir
        Patrick.

        Sir Patrick raises his hand -- and the crate appears to
        hit an INVISIBLE WALL, breaking apart, revealing HUNDREDS
        OF GRENADES INSIDE!

109C   CONTINUED:                                                109C

       The grenades hover for a SPLIT SECOND -- then Ares sends
       them down towards Diana!

       Diana grabs a LARGE BOMB nearby and THROWS it into the
       air towards the GRENADES -- causing a MASSIVE EXPLOSION!

       The explosion sends Diana and Ares FLYING backwards
       across the AIRFIELD!


109D   EXT. AIRFIELD - HANGAR                                        109D

       Steve sees Diana smashing across the airfield.    He rushes
       to her side!

       The team watches as the truck moves the plane forward.
       Charlie aims his gun -- shooting straight into the
       engine! The truck SMOKES and HALTS, the plane stopped
       for a brief moment as --

       Steve helps Diana up --

       He starts to talk, but Diana's ears are RINGING.    She can

       Chief puts his hand on Charlie's gun, lowers it.

                 Don't shoot!     The whole thing
                 could go!

       The plane's blades start SPINNING! The team fights the
       airmen around it, clearing the path Steve asked them to.

       struggling to say good-bye...

                               CHARLIE (O.S.)
                 Come on, this way! Steve!

       Steve looks at Charlie, who motions to the plane.
       Soldiers are firing at the team, others have unhooked the
       tow truck -- so the plane is moving forward again!

       He presses his WATCH into her hand. She looks at it,
       confused, then looks up to see him running away.

       One last look at Diana, lingering, his heart breaking --
       then he races to the plane. Confused, Diana calls after
       him --

                                  DIANA
                 Steve!

       Steve runs past the team, towards the plane.

                               STEVE
                 I have the plane.

                 But, Steve --

                               STEVE
                 You destroy the lab!       Go!

       The team hesitates for a second, looking at the hangar --

                      (to Charlie and
                       Chief)
                 If we go in there, we're not
                 coming back.

       They share a look -- and then go anyway --

       Steve leaps onto a ladder on the wing of the bomber,
       climbing up as the plane moves down the runway.
                                                             124.

       Ares calmly walks towards Diana. He creates TWIN SWORDS
       out of thin air -- his power growing thanks to Diana,
       Ares is able to conjure any MAN-MADE WEAPON at will --
       and throws the swords at Diana!

       Diana blocks the swords, falling back to the ground.

       Ares charges Diana -- he conjures a SPEAR, throwing it at
       Diana. She blocks it, but again is thrown back as the
       weapon combusts -- slamming into a TRAIN CAR.

       Ares does not relent, conjuring TWIN SWORDS -- swinging
       them at her -- she dodges the blades, BLOCKS them with
       her bracelets --

       Steve moves deeper into the bomber to the PILOT and CO-

       cautions him, motions to the GAS BOMBS --

                                PILOT
                  You hit that, we all go up.
       The co-pilot nods, puts his gun away -- spots another
       weapon. The co-pilot rips a FIRE HATCHET off the wall,
       swinging it hard. Steve dodges the hatchet -- then slams
       his fist into the co-pilot, sending him back against the
       GAS BOMBS --

       Steve wrestles the hatchet away from the co-pilot. Steve
       slams his fist into the co-pilot -- and he crumples to
       the ground.

       Steve fights the Pilot, tossing him back, taking the
       controls. Steve pulls a lever --

        The team looks out across the lab, seeing DIFFERENT DRUMS
        OF CHEMICALS -- ready to be MIXED to create the gas.
        They start kicking over the drums, dismantling the lab,

        ARES conjures a HOOK and CHAIN, throwing it at Diana,

        airfield!

        Diana slams into a tank, denting it. She stands up --
        just as ARES swings a MASSIVE SWORD, the power of the
        blade SLICING everything in its path --

        Diana dodges it as the power SLICES the TANK in two!

        then throws her elbow, knocking him DOWN.

        Ares barely moves out of the way as Diana SMASHES her
        foot onto the roof, narrowly missing his head.

        Ares conjures a LARGE HAMMER, Diana dodging it as he
        swings. She wraps her lasso around him, tossing him over

                 It is futile, sister. But keep

       Ares, slamming her foot down across him. Diana tackles
       him, leaps up -- they crash through a hangar, GERMAN
       SOLDIERS watching, scattering as Diana slides Ares across
       the ground.

       Ares punches Diana off him, motions towards a TANK -- it
       turns, FIRING at Diana! She rolls out of the way and
       catches the shell, throwing it back at the tank! As it
       explodes, German soldiers RUN -- until Ares sees them --
       and using his growing power, takes them over. They all

       One after the other! Tearing through them!

       She spins through the crowd, slamming into the soldiers --
       building to a SUPER SPIN that blows them all back!

       Diana charges Ares, flipping over and around him, dodging
       his sword, kicking him, leaping away, landing, and
       throwing her LASSO around his leg.

       She wraps her lasso around her own leg, flipping him over
       her head, slamming him down onto the ground!

       Diana leaps into the air, smashing her elbow into his
       back. Breathing heavily, full of anger, Diana pulls Ares
       up, getting close enough to realize --

       ARES IS SMILING.   She's almost his.

       Diana pauses, breathing heavy like a wild animal. But
       resists. Ares blasts Diana back into a TANK. Trying to
       anger her into fighting.

       FLASHBACK - EXT. AIRFIELD - NIGHT

       She sees STEVE. Their last moment together replaying,
       but this time she hears him --

                                STEVE
                 Diana!   I have to go.

                               DIANA
                 What are you saying? Steve,
                 whatever it is, I can do it.   Let
                 me do it --

                               STEVE
                 No. It has to be me. I can save
                 today, you can save the world.
                      (beat)
                 I wish we had more time.

                                DIANA
                 What?

       He presses something into her hand. She looks at it,
       confused, then looks up to see him running away.

                                STEVE
                 I love you.

       Diana looks down in her hands at Steve's watch.

       END FLASHBACK.

       EXT. AIRFIELD - NIGHT

       A GOLDEN GLOW begins to emits from Diana, a warmth within
       her building.

       The lasso CRACKLES with power, building up a SURGE OF
       ENERGY that explodes, runs from Diana, running down the
       lasso and into Ares, blasting him backwards!

       Diana opens her eyes.

                               DIANA
                 You're wrong about them...

       Ares EXPLODES in a NASTY, SNARLING, VICIOUS rage! He
       raises his hand -- A MASSIVE STORM OF DEBRIS smashes down
       towards Diana and Maru! It strikes into the tank, but
       Diana doesn't move!

                                SIR PATRICK/ARES
                 NO!

                                                      (CONTINUED)
                                                               133.
124D   CONTINUED: (4)                                              124D

       The debris combusts around Diana, unable to harm her!

       Diana HURLS what's left of the tank aside.   As Diana
       turns to Ares, Maru runs away.

       She walks CALMLY towards Ares.

                               DIANA
                 They're everything you say, but so
                 much more.

                               SIR PATRICK/ARES
                 LIES!

       Ares commands everything around him, bringing a MASSIVE
       SWIRLING STORM of DEBRIS AND WEAPONS TOGETHER -- he
       charges at her in a FURY! But she holds her ground,
       deflects the barrage and then -- absorbing the power --
       sends Ares back!

       Ares falls back, his helmet blown off.   Diana walks
       towards him.

       He stands, creating a MASSIVE LIGHTNING BOLT SPEAR.

                               SIR PATRICK/ARES
                 They do not deserve your
                 protection.

                               DIANA
                 It's not about deserve...

       Diana stops, "catches" the massive lightning bolt in her
       gauntlets. The energy courses between them.

                               DIANA
                 It's about what you believe... and
                 I believe in love --

       Ares CRACKLES WITH LIGHTNING, summoning EVERYTHING HE CAN
       from the STORM ABOVE!

                               SIR PATRICK/ARES
                 I WILL DESTROY YOU! THEN I WILL
                 DESTROY THEM!

       Ares sends all of the lightning at Diana -- she raises
       her gauntlets "catching" it!

                               DIANA
                 Good-bye, brother.

       Diana runs towards Ares as he unleashes the very last of
       his power, erupting towards her.

                                                      (CONTINUED)
                                                              134.
124D   CONTINUED: (5)                                             124D

       Diana LEAPS into the AIR over Ares' last blast. She
       crosses her bracelets midair. She sends the lightning
       BACK INTO Ares!

       Ares cries out as the lightning strikes him, overwhelming
       him! Ares EXPLODES! A HUGE ERUPTION of POWER creates a
       CRATER in the Earth!

       And the God of War is gone FOREVER.

       As the rain falls all around her, Diana's feet land
       softly onto the scorched earth below...


124E   EXT. AIRFIELD - DAWN                                         124E

       The rain washes away the blackened smoke from the sky,
       DAWN breaking through the clouds.

       Diana looks around, the soldiers rousing, as if they were
       waking up from a nightmare, the better side of man
       returning. They pull their gas masks off. Dr. Maru has
       vanished.

       Diana gazes out over the battlefield, looking at the
       team, the Germans -- the last of the ASH swirling around
       her as the SUN RISES. The sunlight hits Diana's face...

       Diana looks at Steve's watch -- it's finally stopped
       ticking.


       SERIES OF SHOTS

       People all over Europe, explode in cheers.   For them, the
       war is over.


125    EXT. TRAFALGAR SQUARE - DAY                                  125

       Wonderful chaos in Trafalgar Square! CONFETTI,
       STREAMERS, FLAGS, people embracing with JOY. HORNS and
       BRASS BANDS. CHEERING SOLDIERS with CROWNS OF FLOWERS in
       their hair GRAB pretty NURSES for a kiss. DRUMS THUNDER
       BY.

       Diana and Etta walk towards the massive, wondrous
       celebration. Diana is dressed as Diana Prince, hair up,
       glasses on. Etta is dressed up, like everybody else
       partying in the streets. They take in the joy.

                               ETTA
                 You saved everyone.

                              DIANA
                     (correcting her)
                Steve did that.

      Charlie, Sameer, and The Chief, cleaned and scrubbed and
      wearing suits, join Diana and Etta.

                              CHARLIE
                     (to Diana; excited)
                Did Etta tell you? That General
                whats-his-name, you know --

                              ETTA
                Haig.

                              CHARLIE
                He only went and made us all
                spies! Oops. We're off to
                Petrograd! Oops.

                              ETTA
                There's a revolution going on.
                Even Chief's coming. You should,
                too.

                              DIANA
                     (touched)
                I don't think so.

      Etta stops in front of a recently erected wall of WAR
      MEMORIAL PHOTOGRAPHS. Steve looks dashing, happy, and
      very much alive. Diana's already fighting tears.

                              SAMEER
                Behind all beauty, all wisdom,
                there is pain. You must take your
                pain and make it beautiful.

                              DIANA
                Where did you read that?

                              SAMEER
                I didn't.
                     (beat)
                You taught us that.

      She forces a smile.

                              DIANA (V.O.)
                I used to want to save the world.
                                                            136.


126   INT. LOUVRE MUSEUM - DIANA'S OFFICE - AS BEFORE (PRESENT       126
      DAY)

      THE PHOTOGRAPH:   Diana, in WONDER WOMAN ARMOR, and her
      TEAM.

                              DIANA (V.O.)
                To end war and bring peace to
                mankind.

      She contemplates the faces of friends long dead, her eyes
      linger on STEVE TREVOR.

                              DIANA (V.O.)
                But now I've touched the darkness
                that lives in between the light.
                Seen the terrible things men do to
                each other in the name of
                hatred... and the lengths they'll
                go to for love.
                     (beat)
                And now I know that only love can
                truly save the world.
                     (beat)
                So I stay and I fight and I give
                for the love I know can be. This
                is my mission now. Forever.

      Diana takes Steve's watch from her pocket, turns it over
      in her hand twice, feels its smoothness.

      The watch has stopped -- and has been stopped since the
      moment Steve died.

      She places the watch beside the photograph.

      AT HER COMPUTER: Diana is typing an e-mail, BRUCE
      WAYNE's name the recipient:

      "Thanks for bringing him back to me."

      Just as Diana presses SEND, a news alert pops up on her
      screen. A fire has broken out in a downtown building,
      people trapped.

                                                     SMASH CUT TO:


127   EXT. ROOFTOP - DAY                                             127

      Diana in her WONDER WOMAN ARMOR stands atop a building,
      smiles --

      Then she leaps right AT us, into action!

                                               SMASH CUT TO BLACK.


      FADE IN:

      POST-CREDITS SCENE.

      [NOTE: This is a POST-CREDITS SCENE, leading to JUSTICE
      LEAGUE.]

      On the SAME CLIFF where Diana saw Steve's plane,
      HIPPOLYTA stands on the shore, looking out over the
      ocean, thinking about her daughter.

      A beat. Then Hippolyta turns -- as if she hears
      something -- just as VENELIA rides up to her. Venelia
      dismounts.

                                 VENELIA
                 My Queen --

                                 HIPPOLYTA
                 I know.    The Mother Box... it has
                 awoken.    Alert everyone.


129   INT. PENETRALIUM - NIGHT                                        129

      In the center of the PENETRALIUM -- PUSH IN ON:    THE
      MOTHER BOX... IT GLOWS.

                               HIPPOLYTA (V.O.)
                 Something terrible is coming.
                                               SMASH CUT TO BLACK.




                                  THE END
