When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, one’s general opinion from film to film is subjective. Though for the most part, one could argue that from a critical standpoint, the general audience and masses rallied around Wonder Woman much more compared to the likes of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Suicide Squad. Again, yes, there are many who love them all, but when looking at the masses and critical reception, more tended to favor Wonder Woman prior than what came before. But let’s narrow down the masses and tank Frank Miller.
As you can see in Batman v Superman, there are definite homages to Frank Miller’s “Dark Knight Returns,” but Wonder Woman more or less tells its own story with less direct references to comic stories from DC lore. And while Frank Miller has discussed his thoughts on Batman v Superman in the past, this post today centers around Wonder Woman. If the headline wasn’t apparent enough. At Comic-Con Paris, Frank Miller sat on a panel alongside fellow comic writer Andy Kubert.
At one point during the question and answer portion, Miller was asked to give his thoughts on Wonder Woman. He says, quite plainly, “I loved Wonder Woman.” Short and to the point. When asked about the others, Miller merely reiterated “I loved Wonder Woman.” Again, can’t really get more direct than that. Here, you can watch Miller give his thoughts on the film in the video below at the 11:45 mark-
Well, at least we know that. With the sequel coming out in 2020, we’ll see if Frank Miller has the same love for the next Patty Jenkins installment as he had for the original. But what do you think? Admittedly, not a lot to grasp from Miller’s thoughts and a mere four words, but given his past thoughts on comic adaptations, what do you make of this? Let us know in the comments below.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, and Elena Anaya. The film is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
