CBMB: First Look at the Amazonian World of Wonder Woman

By Muuka Muyumba

Today, Entertainment Weekly debuted the first look at the Amazons of Themyscira, the hidden island where Amazon women of Greek myth have thrived for centuries, and the birthplace of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot).

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters today, and introduces Wonder Woman as “…a cornerstone in Warner Bros.’ DC Comics multiverse, with a crucial role in the first Justice League movie (out November 2017)”. Directed by Patty Jenkins (Monster), Wonder Woman will be an origin story illustrating the transformation of a young Princess Diana into the “greatest female warrior of all time.”

EW reported that the film it shooting off the coasts of Italy and southern China with producer Charles Roven adding, “Themyscira is influenced by the Greek but it’s clearly more then that,” he says. “It’s a place that has the ‘you’ve never been to’ kind of feel. But once you’re there you’re not so sure you really want to leave so fast.” ​

Wonder Woman will be the 2nd DC Films ‘solo’ film to hit theaters following Suicide Squad, and now may be faced with the task of resetting the tone of the DC Films Universe. That’s because Batman v Superman is currently being savaged by critics for problems with pacing, atmosphere, tone, and script. All of these aspects of the film should be controlled by the director, in this case Zack Snyder, who appears to have mucked up the introduction to DC Films. Therefore, Patty Jenkins may be tasked with the impossible job of shifting the tone that Snyder build with Man of Steel, and will be continuing to foster in Justice League Part One.

Now, that doesn’t mean that Wonder Woman should be a comedy, but Warner Bros and DC Entertainment may be working closely with Jenkins, as post-production ramps up, to make sure we don’t have another brawl in a dark alley.

Wonder Woman is slated to debut on June 23, 2017.
