San Diego Comic Con is almost upon us, and that means many major studios are preparing their presentations for the many eager fans who will be crowding into the convention center to get a glimpse at some of the most highly anticipated movies coming out over the next couple of years. Warner Bros. will be bringing a handful of their upcoming movies to show at the convention, and Wonder Woman looks like it will be a major focus for the studio at SDCC.
Warner Bros. Recently put out a press release detailing some of their plans for SDCC, and Wonder Woman is indeed included in their line-up. No surprise there. But the studio did include an official synopsis for the upcoming Patty Jenkins movie, which had not been released previously. Here it is.
"Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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."
The synopsis is actually reasonably revealing, as it appears to let us know how Chris Pine's character will factor into the movie, and it sort of lays out the basic structure of the first and third act of the Wonder Woman movie, without giving away too much. It also seems much more likely that Warner Bros. will be releasing a trailer for the movie at SDCC, given that the release of the movie is a little less than a year away, and it will be the next movie on their release schedule following Suicide Squad. But the synopsis wasn't the only bit of Wonder Woman info that the studio decided to drop on us.
What is perhaps more compelling than the basic synopsis for Wonder Woman is the fact that both Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg are credited as screenwriters for the movie. Originally, Jason Fuchs, who is credited with writing both Ice Age: Continental Drift and Pan, was thought to be the writer of the movie, but that looks to not be the case. Warner Bros. didn't even mention his name and he is not credited on IMDB as of now. Heinberg came up with the initial story for Wonder Woman with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder, so it isn't all that surprising he is being credited. Geoff Johns was recently promoted to oversee the production of all DC Extended Universe movies at Warner Bros., so it also seems to make sense that he was heavily involved. Johns and Heinberg also have a much better track record than Fuchs, so though it may be a bit surprising, it isn't at all unwelcomed news.
Lastly, photographer Clay Enos took to Twitter to share yet another, never before seen photo of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman on the set of Batman V Superman. Enos appeared to drop the picture of Gadot getting ready to do battle with Batman and Superman in order to help promote the Ultimate Edition of Batman V Superman. You can check out the new photo for yourself below. Warner Bros. San Diego Comic Con Hall H presentation is taking place on July 23 at 11:30 a.m. Wonder Woman is set for release on June 2, 2017.
