‘Batman Vs. Superman’ is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated movies in years and rumors and news about it has been popping up on almost a daily basis. Every bit of casting news has set the world of social media on fire, with Gal Gadot revealed to be playing Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa and Joaquin Phoenix rumored to be up for villain roles.
Wesley Coller, a producer of ‘Man of Steel’, recently spoke about the upcoming follow-up, stating:
“Anything you do that’s culturally significant, or any time you deal with an iconic character or story, you’re going to hear responses from every possible perspective. So nothing surprises me anymore. If anything, that gauges the relevance of a property or character, and it’s invigorating to know people care that much. It inspires you to make the coolest version of the movie that you can. Ben is the perfect fit for Zack’s vision for this story.”
He also addressed the inclusion of Wonder Woman, by saying:
“[My daughter’s] favorite book is this little Wonder Woman flip book. It has the lasso, the invisible plane, the bracelets – every page has an image she’s just in awe with. And something that’s become a reality, being a dad with a new daughter, is that I have a special place in my heart for the idea of a strong, empowered female superhero being out there.”
Will Wonder Woman get her own movie, after this?
“We’re super excited to have her in the film. It will be a ton of fun. But at the same time, we’ve got to stay focused on the film we’re working on now.”
I can’t imagine Wonder Woman not getting her own solo movie. I know some are upset that she is being “shoehorned” into this movie (without even being included in the title) instead of going directly into her own solo movie, but considering that the character hasn’t really been in the public eye in years, maybe it’s better to proceed with caution.
The fact that he mentions her lasso, invisible plane and bracelets gives me hope that these iconic objects will appear in the movie.
What do you think? Are you excited about this new movie?
