Fade in.

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)

5 CONTINUED:

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.
