Part of DC’s triumvirate, Wonder Woman has always been a fan-favorite character. Though Warner Brothers didn’t really expect that much when it released the first Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, the DC comic book movie became a massive success, enjoying positive reviews from fans and critics.
Now that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is set to work on the production of the film’s sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, the director can’t help but open up about the favorite traits that she sees in the DC hero.
Speaking in a recent interview with the Vanity Fair to help promote the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, Jenkins got to talking about the comic book sequel. During her discussion with the entertainment news outlet, the filmmaker got to talking about the favorite thing that she finds in Wonder Woman – love and compassion.
“That’s my favorite thing about her, heroism involves keeping your love and compassion intact while you try to change the world. I love that about Wonder Woman and it was one of the things I felt the most passionate about being maintained,” the director told the publication, “ because it was something that I loved about her growing up. She was an inspiration and no part of her made me feel that I couldn’t also be a woman, and also be a mother, and also be a wife or a girlfriend or a partner. She’s a whole-bodied hero who stands for goodness, but also love and compassion and kindness. That’s where it was the most challenging—the world not thinking a female superhero could be powerful.”
Compassion and love are some of the significant traits of Diana Prince. These two qualities were considered ever since the character was created was created by DC.
Gal Gadot was the perfect fit for the role. Not only does the actress look the part, but she seems to eminate the part as well, radiating empathy and emotionality during the first Wonder Woman movie.
We can’t wait to see Wonder Woman 1984 on the big screen. The film is set for release on August 14, 2020.
