Producer Charles Roven doesn’t want audiences to think that the DC Comics films are the run-of-the-mill kind of superhero movies.
In an interview with ComicBook.com Roven really hopes that people can find the characters “inspirational and aspirational.”
We’re hoping honestly that you won’t say that when you see any of these movies. Get powers, fight bad guys. And one of the reasons honestly that I think that all of these characters have been around for so long is that they touch people both being inspirational and aspirational in more ways than just that.
Roven went on to talk about Wonder Woman’s origin story and how, with the movie, they had a chance to take from the best aspects of her comic book history and put it together.
For Wonder Woman, what was really intriguing to us was the mythology of her past and attempting to blend both the canon from the past with the New 52 and really come up with a compelling story for Diana and her hero’s journey.
“Wonder Woman has elements of being naïve of what she thinks her mission in life is, and she goes on a tremendous learning process to ultimately become the woman that we’re going to meet in Batman v Superman. Right now, in Batman v Superman, she’s really a mystery. She’s compelling and wonderful to watch, and when we see her don the outfit, it’s fantastic, but we don’t really know a lot about her background, so she’s mysterious. We answer those questions on how she became who she became and why.
After last night’s release of the new Wonder Woman trailer, it most definitely looks like Diana’s origin story will be explored and we’ll get to see her on that journey from just an Amazonian to the woman she will eventually become. The film looks engaging, full of action, and great character development.
