In less than two weeks, Wonder Woman will arrive in theaters and depict the iconic DC Comics heroine’s efforts to bring an early end to World War I. Leaving the island of Themyscira to help bring an end to the global conflict, Diana will experience a culture shock as she is introduced to the social structure and behaviors of mankind for the first time. One of the many characters Diana will encounter during her mission will be General Erich Ludendorff, played by Danny Huston, a general of German Army. In an interview for EntertainmentHotline, Huston discussed Diana’s reaction to mankind’s world and his character’s relationship with the villainous Doctor Maru.
Huston commented on Diana’s reaction to mankind once she arrives in London.
“I suppose her shock being an outsider is to see us humans, mankind, behave the way that we do, and it’s kind of fascinating to see the world through her eyes as a comment on us. Because she is in a way this wonderful romantic supreme noble beautiful upstanding character.”
Huston also described the relationship between Ludendorff and Doctor Maru, a.k.a. Dr. Poison.
“Ludendorff’s relationship to Doctor Maru is, in a way she’s the key to his success. There’s a dreadful formula that needs to be designed that will facilitate victory, and in that sense, he sees her as a genius. A doctor with a mathematical equation that solves his problems.”

Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
