Talking to CinemaBlend To promote her upcoming sequel, Jenkins was asked if she had watched Justice League in order to see how the character of Diana (Gal Gadot) was treated, and revealed that she didn’t because “all of us DC directors threw that in as much as the fans did. ”
“But also, I felt that this version contradicted my first film in many ways, and this current film, which I was already in production on,” the filmmaker continued. “So what are you going to do?” I was like… you have to play ball back and forth for this to work. “
Jenkins, however, hinted that she got a rough idea of Diana’s arc through conversations with Zack Snyder.
“The only thing I did, and I always tried to do, was – I knew, when Zack was doing Justice League, where she sort of ended up. So I always tried… like, I didn’t change my costume, because I never wanna… I don’t wanna contradict his movies, you know? But yet, I have to have my own films, and he was very supportive of that. And so, I think Justice League was kind of an outlier. They were trying to turn one thing into, sort of, another. And then it becomes, “I don’t recognize half of these characters. I am not sure what is going on. “”
Although she said she hadn’t watched “Josstice League” earlier in the interview, Jenkins admitted that it was “difficult” to see Diana portrayed in a certain way (maybe she went through it?) Having already laid the groundwork for the character in the first WW movie. Maybe she’ll appreciate Wondy’s portrayal more in Justice League de Zack Snyder.
Wonder Woman 1984 is set to hit theaters and HBO Max on December 25. The “Snyder Cut” is slated for a miniseries on the streamer next year.
