If you were hoping for some playful banter and jokes about chimichangas in the upcoming Wonder Woman film, you’ll probably be disappointed. According to Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, her character’s film is going to follow in DC’s footsteps of dark, brooding superhero flicks.
Gadot spoke with Digital Spy about Wonder Woman, and discussed the character’s origin story as well as the overall tone of the film:
“In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman, it’s very interesting. It has moments of humour, but it’s pretty dark.”
So basically, it’s DC being DC. Got it. Wonder Woman easily stole the show in Batman v Superman, but according to Gadot we’ll be seeing a different side of the Amazonian heroine.
“She’s this young idealist. She’s pure. Very different to the experienced, super-confident, grown-up woman you’ve seen.”
Wonder Woman will be directed by Patty Jenkins, who is known for her 2003 award winning film, Monster. Gadot will be joined by Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy. Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017.
