DC Films has taken an interesting stance when it comes to bringing their comic books to life on the big screen. Killer Croc be damned, Warner Bros. wants these movies to be as realistic as possible. Which means ditching some of the more fantastical aspects of each character. And when it comes to Wonder Woman, she will be absent one of her coolest gadgets of all time. Though, we're not sure how fans will respond.
The invisible jet has always been considered a little goofy. Though it's none the less beloved by Wonder Woman's legion of fans. And many have wondered how director Patty Jenkins will pull it off. Quick answer is, she won't. When Diana Prince arrives in her own solo movie next year, it will be sans this iconic vehicle. Speaking with People, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson had this to say about getting rid of Wonder Woman's ride, explaining that it all has to do with the more serious tone of the movie.
"[Wonder Woman] will have its own tone and look - it's beautiful. There is humor in it, there is real emotion in Diana's journey in discovering the complexity of man. There is no invisible jet. Not in this iteration."
The invisible jet has been a staple of the DC Comics for a very long time. And dates back to the earliest issues from William Moulton Marston. But if you are heading to Comic-Con 2016 in San Diego this year, you could easily imagine it there, resting alongside the other props that DC and Warner Bros. will have on display. After all, it is invisible. All kidding aside, costumes and other artifacts used in filming will be available for fans to see in person. There is also a special panel planned for the character's 75th Anniversary, where we'll likely get the first real footage from the movie.
No official plot synopsis has been released for Wonder Woman yet. The movie is said to span three different time periods, with a great deal of the movie taking place during World War I. Gal Gadot returns to reprise her role as Diana Prince after first being introduced in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. It isn't known if any other characters from that movie will be stopping in to make a cameo, but it's believed that Batman will arrive in the third act to welcome her to Justice League, the next DC Comics movie to follow later next year.
Shooting wrapped on Wonder Woman earlier this year, with Gal Gadot transitioned straight into Justice League, where she will be joined by Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and Jason Momoa. Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder returns to helm this epic ensemble. Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui, Elena Anaya, Connie Nielsen and Lucy Davis.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman is being produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder, with Richard Suckle, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Rebecca Roven serving as executive producers. Wonder Woman is set to open in theaters on June 2, 2017. While we may hear more about Wonder Woman in the next few weeks, we shouldn't expect to see anything major until this July when Comic-Con kicks off.
