Entertainment Weekly dropped an exclusive first look of the heroines in the upcoming "Wonder Woman" film starring Robin Wright and Gal Gadot, and something just doesn't look right.

' Themyscira, originally known as Paradise Island, is the hidden home of these powerful Amazonian warriors. It's extremely well documented that this society of sisters are women of many colors living in harmony, but for some reason that has yet to be reflected in the promotional material

Two of the most notable characters of the Themysciran community, and also play huge parts in Wonder Woman's personal story, are black women: Philippus and Nubia

Philippus is a high ranking general among the Amazons and Captain of the Royal Guard.

Nubia is considered one of the strongest among her people (even giving Wonder Woman these hands on several occasions), and has the power to open dimensional portals and turn enemies to stone with just a look.

But, for some reason these characters are still nowhere to be found in the promo. The blerd timeline is not pleased. We're all waiting to see more before completely writing this movie off, but it's not looking good this far. We've seen this game played over and over again in Hollywood when it comes to erasing people of color from stories that we love, and the community is done being silent

' ' ' ' Wonder Woman is set for release on June 23, 2017
