'Wonder Woman' Director And Producer Talks Film's Tone, Vision, And More

A few noted figures who are involved in the upcoming DC Films' Wonder Woman talked to Variety recently about the film and its main character. These noted figures are Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertainment and resident of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Deborah Snyder, a producer on many of the recent DC films, and lastly Patty Jenkins, the film's director.

Many have criticised DC Films for being too subjectively dark in tone, but it seems that they can rest easy for Wonder Woman.

“‘Wonder Woman’ is very different in tone and style than ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Suicide Squad,'” said Deborah Snyder. “We pick directors who have their own points of view, so that each of our films will have their own personality.”

“There’s a misconception that DC or [parent studio] Warner Bros. has made a conscious decision for all our movies to be darker or edgier,” said Diane Nelson. “That’s not the case. Fans of the DC universe know that there are characters, like Batman, who are darker, but there are others like Wonder Woman, who are hopeful, optimistic leaders, and the tone of this film represents that.”

To move away from the tone, Patty Jenkins discussed the inspiration, which is the Richard Donner film Superman, for the film.

“‘Superman’ was all about you,” said Jenkins. “It was about you watching and realizing what it would feel like to have great powers and do great things. It was full of love and emotion.”

While the Wonder Woman solo film will be set in probably the most depressing moment in human history, WWI, it will have a hearty vibe to it and will offer moments of levity.

“Patty brought a beauty and a sense of lightness or humour, and a little romance to it,” said Nelson. “It’s a very aspirational movie.”

“Her armour, the shield, the lasso, and so forth are what you could describe as defensive weapons as opposed to offensive weapons,” said Nelson. “That’s a pretty good way to think about the way she fights. She’s not choosing to fight for the thrill of battle. She’s fighting because she believes in something and she’s quick to put down that sword when the opportunity is there.”

There were other comments made in the interviews which you can read by clicking the link down below for more information on the solo film.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.

Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Lucy Davis as Etta Candy, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. The film is directed by Patty Jenkins and written by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg.
