Wasn’t Wonder Woman such a good movie? If you’re like us, you were pleasantly surprised by the amount of heart that movie had. It really made you care about Wonder Woman and understand what made her so badass. However, you may have also come away a bit confused.
In Batman v Superman, she mentioned that she had given up on mankind, and yet in Wonder Woman, her character arc revolved around her understanding that mankind is flawed, yet still worth fighting for. Naturally, this made us think that Wonder Woman 2 may very well cover an event that would make her the slightly more jaded warrior we saw in Batman v Superman.
Well, don’t hold your breath, because it sounds like that story isn’t coming. Speaking with Screen Rant, Wonder Woman and Justice League actress Gal Gadot gave a real honest answer about the changes they made to the character during the development of Wonder Woman.
“We realized that actually, there is no way that Wonder Woman will ever give up on mankind. The reason why she left the island was because she wanted to make their life better and safer – they are her calling. So – I’m giving you a very honest answer – sometimes, in a creative process, you establish something that is not necessarily the right decision, but then you can always correct it and change it. So Wonder Woman will always be there as far as she concerns for mankind.”
Of course, this makes us wonder just where she’s been for the decades leading up to Batman v Superman. There’s probably an easy answer to that. After all, Wonder Woman is a genuine protector of mankind, and she’s so altruistic in nature that we can see her helping out under the radar for decades without any real recognition.
All in all, this feels like a good decision, as it would have been a bet demoralizing for a Wonder Woman film to end with her being resentful of mankind. What do you think of this retcon? Let us know your thoughts down below!
