The origin of Wonder Woman has been confirmed for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice producers Charles Roven was recently interviewed for “The Hollwood Masters” series at Loyola Marymount School of Film and TV. During the course of the interview, Roven described the difference between the world of The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the shared DC Universe that began with Man of Steel.
I don’t think it’s a secret that it’s called Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros. has announced a number of DC properties that are going to be made over the next five years, including Justice League.
The biggest difference between what Chris [Nolan] did in The Dark Knight Trilogy and what we’re doing now is that Bruce Wayne, Batman, lived in what I called a closed universe, in that there were no superheroes in it. There’s Batman, and he is a human being, and Bruce Wayne has taken himself and made himself – in many ways, even though he’s definitely got some dysfunction – he’s made himself into, in many ways, the best a human being can be intellectually, in terms of his ability to be a detective, physically, etcetera. But he’s real. He’s human, he’s a human being. He has no superpowers.
When we embarked on Man of Steel…one of the things we were doing was we were created a universe that had a superhero in it, because Superman is clearly a superhero, he has superpowers. So once we did that, it was with the knowledge that, if the movie was successful and we expanded the universe, we were going to expand it and populate it with other, like characters.
Roven also talked a little bit about Wonder Woman and what her character will be like in the upcoming movie.
Wonder Woman’s in it. We know that. She has powers, she’s a goddess. She’s a demigod. Her father was Zeus.
So cool. I am thrilled to hear that she is a goddess and that she has powers! The burning question everyone has is…does she have an invisible jet? What do you think? Does this make you feel good about the upcoming Batman/Supes film? You can check out the interview below.
