The Dawn of Justice has arrived, and with it the first instance of DC’s Trinity on screen together in a film. Batman and Superman have appeared in over a dozen movies over the years, but Wonder Woman has finally made her debut. Even better, the character will be getting her own movie next summer, but she’ll be a little different than the version you just saw in theaters.
“The Wonder Woman that you see in ‘Batman v Superman’ is a woman who has been around, and she’s very experienced,” Gadot tells The LA Times. “She understands a lot about man. Whereas in the standalone movie we are telling the grown-up story. Diana becoming Wonder Woman, and this was a story that was never told before. When she starts this journey, she’s very pure. She’s more naive, she’s this young idealist who does not really understand the complexities of life and the complexities of men.”
Gadot goes on to describe her take on Wonder Woman, in particular when she finds herself fighting a massive villain such as Doomsday.
“At the end of the day Wonder Woman is a peace seeker. But when fight arrives, she can fight. She’s a warrior and she enjoys the adrenaline of the fight.”
Yesterday, saw a new photo from the solo Wonder Woman movie debut, giving fans a first look at Diana’s immediate family. Some cried foul, however, since Themyscira has long been a very diverse place for the inhabiting Amazons, and director Patty Jenkins took to Twitter to say that’s what the final film will reflect.
Thanks all. Excited to share! And no worries. Lots of great, diverse characters on Themyscira. This is Diana’s direct family. More soon!!
