‘Wonder Woman’ Director On Making Different Superhero Action Scenes

Wonder Woman
This summer, Wonder Woman will finally headline her long overdue solo film with Gal Gadot returning as the titular heroine. In an interview with DC Entertainment, director Patty Jenkins discussed the film’s action sequences and explained how she tried to make them unique.

Jenkins discussed her approach to the film’s action scenes.

“Really, every action sequence is from her point of view and for her story. So there was no point in the movie that were ever like, stepped out, and were like ‘look at this extravaganza!’ It was always, you know, she witnesses a battle on a beach that rocks her world and changes her understanding of what warfare is and then she comes to man’s world and she see’s a war that everybody says is impenetrable and nothing can be done about it and she says, ‘what am I gonna do about it?'”

Jenkins explained how the action scenes will be different from previous superhero films.

“It makes it like everything else I’ve ever done. Because you’re just saying, like, ‘here’s my character, here’s the journey that they’re on, how do I wanna experience that and how do you do it?’ I think that there are things about that are not what superhero movies are always having to do. [They’re] 100% character driven.”

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. 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.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.

Wonder Woman will be released in theaters on June 2, 2017.
