Recently at Wondercon, Patty Jenkins shared new details on the making of Wonder Woman and confirmed its villain. The director had a one-on-one interview with Comicbook’s Brandon Davis and spoke about her relationship with Zack Snyder and Geoff Johns during the process of filming the standalone movie.
“I think he’s the biggest villain [Ares a.k.a God of War] of Wonder Woman’s world,” said Jenkins. “I think if you’re gonna start off big and start off right with the greatest villain.”
Later in the interview, Jenkins was also asked if her vision from her earlier canceled project Thor: The Dark World made it into Wonder Woman. Here’s what she had to say.
“I mean they’re very similar in a lot of ways,” said Jenkins. “It’s a lot of the same questions and a lot of the same struggles that I was interested in Thor’s story or here, although in that case it was the second movie so it would never have been as pure and as simple fan arc so I really think it was meant to be that I ended up doing this one, which I had always wanted to do anyway. And I got to do it in a kind of bigger and purer arc rather than putting it in that other story.”
For fans that aren’t aware, Jenkins was earlier chosen to direct Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. But the director backed out due to creative differences. Fortunately, she didn’t seem to have the same problems with DCEU’s Wonder Woman as per her interview with Comicbook.
Wonder Woman releases on June 2nd, 2017. The standalone movie will explain the origin of Diana Prince and the Amazonian world in DCEU. The female superhero will also appear in Justice League set to hit theaters on November 17th, 2017.
