Screenrant is reporting on comments made by Zack Snyder about Wonder Woman and how it relates to Batman v. Superman. Receiving an early copy of the new book Wonder Woman: The Art And Making Of The Film, Snyder discussed the intentions behind making Wonder Woman as diametrically opposed to Batman and Superman. Zack Snyder had this to say in the book.
“She offers a unique opportunity to speak to what it is to be a strong, powerful, independent woman. It’s a glance that is necessary in the world, as well as the way that we represent heroes onscreen. Having that equal representation of male and female energy is really important to me. I love that there’s a purity to Wonder Woman. She doesn’t have the broken past, she’s not seeking revenge on people that wronged her. She can just be a hero.”
Some folks have commented that one reason Wonder Woman has done so well was due to the absence of Zack Snyder. That is categorically false. While Snyder is definitely deserving of criticism for some of his work in the DCEU, people have to be able to offer praise when it is deserved. Snyder has been one of the figures behind the scenes guiding the DCEU ship, determining the direction the series is going. As one of the key figures running things leading up to Justice League, it makes sense that he would be used as a resource to help guide the solo movies toward what he hopes to accomplish with Justice League later this year. Hearing his comments on the Wonder Woman character and the insight he provided to Patty Jenkins, I have to say I appreciate the fact that he gets Wonder Woman. He understands what makes this character special.
