Saïd Taghmaoui (an actor I've admired since his smoldering interrogation of Mark Wahlberg in Three Kings) standing out, along with David Thewlis as a British military man. Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright make only brief appearances, but add a strength of presence that really sells us on the world Diana comes from before she becomes Wonder Woman (I could have watched an whole movie based around Wright's character, Antiope.). But perhaps the best is Lucy Davis (Dawn from the original version of The Office) as Steve's secretary, Etta Candy. By allowing Etta to be a part of the team in her own way and so completely trusted by Steve and Diana, the filmmakers make a quiet and subtle statement that even that strong woman have existed at all times and in all places, and they don't all have to be gorgeous amazon warrior princesses.
In short, to paraphrase the ultimate comic book movie tag line, you will believe a woman can fly as high as any man.
