'Wonder Woman' Director Says the Film Will Give Renewed Insight into 'Batman v Superman'
We met Wonder Woman as played by Gal Gadot for the first time in last year's Batman v Superman, and it looks like Wonder Woman will very much give us a new look at the character and how she ended up in the place she did, mentally, in Zack Snyder's universe-launcher.
“Yes, there will be," director Patty Jenkins said when asked if the film leads into an understanding of her feelings in BVS. "And also it illuminates that there might be a misunderstanding of how we’re perceiving what she actually is thinking in the future.
"I think this movie ends great and in a way that really helps you to understand her, and she has a lot of shades in the future, but I think really when you look at BvS, it’s a snapshot. You’re not getting a lot of information about her point of view and so I think there’s a lot of complexity in why she’s saying what she’s saying and why she is who she is.”
Gal Gadot added in,
“The character that we shot, that I played in BvS was more realistic and more mature and more of a woman. In this one, this is the coming of age of Diana. She starts as a very naive girl, naive, positive, happy, seeking-for-good girl, but in BvS, she’s been, she’s been through a lot. She already understood the complexity of human beings.”
