Joss Whedon Talks About Wonder Woman

In Focus has posted a great interview with Joss Whedon in which he’s asked quite a few questions about the Wonder Woman movie. Here’s a couple of clips:

Will Diana be able to fly under her own power, or will an invisible plane be involved?

I do not believe she will be flying. I think we have a guy who flies. I don’t see her flying. She might jump. There could be some hopping. And there may in fact be an invisible plane. But if there is, it will be because it came out really cool. And I have theories about how to make that work.

As you go about casting Diana, do you set a height requirement? How important is it that the Amazon princess be tall?

It’s important. I’m looking for somebody statuesque, regal, beautiful, who can really act and do a lot of stunts with no elbow or knee pads. I’m asking a lot. So if I happen to find all those qualities in somebody who does not quite meet my height requirement, I will be casting some really short love interest. The height is definitely a part of the package. But the most important part? No. And the fact of the matter is, a woman stands as tall as she makes you think she is. For example, I always thought ["Buffy" writer-producer] Marti Noxon was four inches taller than she actually was. I just found that out last week.
