Wonder Woman vs. Gargantua

Wonder WomanA Nazi defector is questioned by Major Trevor as Diana and General Blankenship watch from the other side of a false mirror; he has valuable information that he’s not unloading until the United States can guarantee his safety. But his fellow Nazis are already planning to recapture him before he can talk, and they’ve prepared for any interference from Wonder Woman by training a giant gorilla to react to her with hostile aggression on sight. She may be an expert at dealing with Nazis, but can Wonder Woman tame the heart of a trained, conditioned primate?
