You ok? How you’re feeling about today’s news has a lot to do with whether you liked Batman v Superman. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, but I liked Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. It helped her theme was my favorite part of the soundtrack too.
Usually, we know the screenwriters for a film before it’s already in post-production. A press release from Warner Bros. revealed three people who had a hand in writing Wonder Woman’s story – Zack Snyder, Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg.
Heinberg and Johns are credited with the screenplay based on a story by Snyder and Heinberg.
This is a big surprise for many since it was long thought writer Jason Fuchs had drafted the Wonder Woman script. It looks like Warner Bros. wanted to go in a different direction.
Warner Bros. also released a new plot synopsis:
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.
Most of us know who Zack Snyder is. But what about Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg?
Geoff Johns has served as Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics since 2010. And with Johns now co-running DC Films along with Warner Bros. exec Jon Berg, it’s not that surprising he would have a major role in Wonder Woman.
Do you watch The Flash? Geoff Johns helped develop the popular TV series with Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.
As for Alan Heinberg? His writing credits include Grey’s Anatomy and The O.C.
With Comic-Con just around the corner, we should get some more news on Wonder Woman. And hopefully a trailer. I know we are still a year away from the movie release, but we need more than just the glimpses of footage from earlier this year.
