One of the first things we discovered about Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was this black and white photo from her past. It featured her standing with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), Charlie (Ewen Bremner), Sameer (Saïd Taghmaoui) and The Chief (Eugene Brave Rock).
In Wonder Woman, we come to learn more about the men joining Diana on her quest as well as what led to them to capturing that moment. Bremner revealed recently in an interview that before they had even shot a scene for Wonder Woman, they came together to get this photo taken which would appear in Batman v Superman. He also discussed the challenges of having to re-create that image several months later.
“That was the first thing that we shot, before we’d even shot a scene [for Wonder Woman] we shot that photograph. It meant that when we eventually got around to shooting the scene that the [photograph] is from, we had to really painstakingly recreate it. Because we [took the photo] against a half-built set, in a way sets were still being built at that point. So by the time we came around to filming that scene, probably around five months later, the sets were much more developed. So we had to find a way to recreate the exact same image after half a year had gone by.”
