Wonder Woman is getting her own movie, and you're seeing the first clips to be released! The movie doesn't come out until 2017, but The List's Bradley Hasemeyer has three things you really should know about her, now!

3. Even though she was originally created as a feminist icon, her first position with Justice League of America... was as a secretary. This move by DC comics infuriated the character's creator. Today, she's one of the lead members of the JLA.

2. Lynda Carter wasn't TV's first Wonder Woman. That would be Cathy Lee Crosby,who starred in the TV movie that was supposed to be the show's pilot. Crosby turned down the chance to do the entire series. Enter Carter, who will forever be associated with role.

1. It's no coincidence that she wields the Lasso of Truth. That's because Wonder Woman's creator, William Moulton Marston, also invented the polygraph aka the Lie Detector. True story.
