Following the success of Wonder Woman, many fans started to wonder whether or not Wonder Womanâ€™s role in the upcoming Justice League would change. After all, the DC Extended Universe has had four films so far, and of those four films, only one â€” Wonder Woman â€” has been praised universally as a good film.
With additional photography for Justice League currently underway, there were many who believed that Warner Bros. would leverage her character heavily to help sell the film to those who loved Wonder Woman. Plus, Joss Whedon â€” who is taking over directing duties for Zack Snyder during said additional photography â€” is well known for writing and directing strong female characters. So it seems like a match madein heaven, right?
Maybe not. Speaking with Variety, DCEU producer Jon Berg was asked point blank if Wonder Womanâ€™s role would be enhanced in Justice League. Berg responded as follows:
â€œHer role wonâ€™t change, but she was already playing a big role. People really responded to Gal [Gadot] in Batman v. Superman. We knew we had something special.â€
So no, from the sound of it, the reshoots werenâ€™t done to turn it into the Wonder Woman show. This does fall in line with what Warner Bros. president Toby Emmerich said following Zack Snyderâ€™s departure â€” that the vision would still be uniquely Zack Snyder. From the sound of it, that much has been consistent. Whedon is there to execute Snyderâ€™s vision, not create his own.
But is this a good thing or bad thing? Should DC actually be making pains to ensure that Wonder Woman is at the forefront of Justice League? Let us know in the comments down below!
