After eleven years, Joss Whedon’s unused Wonder Woman script has been leaked and you can now read it by going here. The script had the unmade film taking place in present day instead of World War I, but there are some things that remain the same between the scrapped script and the new movie, which is only three weeks out from being released. A couple of these similarities include Steve Trevor and Ares.
Previously, all we’d known about the film is that it was written by Whedon, but no other details were ever made public. Now that the script has been leaked, comparisons will probably be made to Patty Jenkins’ film. However, even though it was written by Whedon, who has a good track record in the superhero world, doesn’t necessarily mean that it would have made for a good movie.
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.
Wonder Woman is directed Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman), Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright (General Antiope), Connie Nielsen (Queen Hippolyta), David Thewlis, Elena Anaya, Lucy Davis (Etta Candy), Danny Huston, Ewen Bremmer, Doutzen Kroes, Samantha Jo (Euboea), Florence Kasumba (Senator Acantha), Said Taghmaoui, Eleanor Matsuura (Epione), Emily Carey (Young Diana), and Lisa Loven Kongsli (Menalippe).
Wonder Woman is in theaters June 2, 2017.
