Zack Snyder's Wonder Woman Movie Pitch Sounds Heartbreaking

l intro 1713190920

Deconstructing Diana’s time at war, Zack Snyder revealed, “On those battlefields she found these lovers, warriors, and they would age out because she is immortal. They would be her lover for ten years or they might die in battle, and it was probably sad for a lot of the guys because they would see her starting to be nice to the next young soldier and be like, ‘Oh, I’m being replaced.’ But all the guys that she had with her were those loyal warriors she found on the battlefields all over the world.”

Those loyal warriors can be seen in an alternate version of the photo that appears in “Dawn of Justice” teasing Diana’s solo movie. Instead of being accompanied by Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) and the rest of the World War I–era soldiers in the Belgian village in “Wonder Woman,” she stands with a mishmash of fighters in a desert while brandishing a trio of severed heads.

As for whether or not “Wonder Woman 1854” will ever come to fruition, at the present moment, the only hint of Diana Prince returning is through “Paradise Lost,” one of the TV series James Gunn and Peter Safran announced for their DC universe reboot, which is set on Themyscira but before her birth … and presumably has a little less severed head collecting.
