A very interesting rumor has recently surfaced regarding Wonder Wonder's role in Zack Snyder's Batman Vs. Superman. If this turns out to be true, it's a very cool little addition to the DC cinematic universe that is being created. The news comes from Batman-on-Film.com, and if you don't want to know, then I suggest you don't read ahead.
Batman-on-Film has a decent track record when it comes to movie news, and here's what they say...
Personally, I'd say it'll be about on par with Scarlett Johansson's first appearance as Black Widow in IRON MAN 2. I believe that it's a cameo-plus type of role that will (hopefully) serve as a springboard to a solo Wonder Woman movie.
With all that said, I'd bet a year's pay – in MONOPOLY money, of course – that the "Amazons" of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those "ancient Kryptonians" who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts throughout spacedom thousands and thousands of years ago.
For those of you not sure what exactly they are saying there, they are basically saying that Wonder Woman is going to be a Kryptonian. If this is true, it drastically re-writes the origin story of Wonder Woman, which is both kind of cool and a little weird, especially for the die hard fans. It locks out all of the mythological aspects of the DC universe, and I'm not sure how to feel about that. The site goes on to explain the superpower aspect of Wonder Woman and the Amazonians,
Furthermore, I say that Wonder Woman will be powered-down, if you will, relative to Superman because these Amazons have evolved and adapted to living on Earth for hundreds of centuries. And since Kryptonians are produced without any "He'n and She'n" – Jor El and Lara excluded – couldn't this original Kryptonian on Earth have used this reproductive science to create an all-female race? I say yes!
This is definitely an interesting idea and concept. If this is what they go with, I hope they can pull it off in a way that won't piss off the fans. My biggest issue with the change is losing that mythological aspect of the DC universe–that means no Greek gods or ancient monsters… bummer. In the end I really hope they don't change things drastically, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
