We got our first glimpse of Wonder Woman in the new Justice League trailer, but before we see her kick ass alongside Batman and The Flash, we’ll be seeing her journey in her solo Wonder Woman movie.
DC producer Charles Roven spoke with ComicBook.com about what he believes to be Diana’s true mission and the importance of it.
“The most important thing, I think, is that Diana’s mission is the Amazon mission. She feels that she is going to accomplish it in one way, and she learns that actually she has to accomplish it in another way. While she’s got the mission in her mind when she leaves, she accomplishes the mission by actually learning from her experiences, including being gifted of those experiences by mankind. It’s really just the sense that we’re not in this world alone. We need each other.”
It’s nice that Wonder Woman will be getting her origin story told prior to her big team-up and we’ll be able to really see where she started to where she ended up in.
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.
