Related imageWonder Woman Director, Patty Jenkins has described parallel links between her vision of Wonder Woman and the DC Comics iconic character, Superman. Jenkins told the LA Times that:

“[There’s] been a fear that you needed to go harder in some direction to make [Wonder Woman] interesting. And I was always confused by it. You could go out on Halloween, even now, 75 years later, and there’s a good chunk of people dressed up as Wonder Woman. She’s pretty simple. She is like the parallel of Superman. She’s good, she means well, she’s kind, she’s loving.”

She also added:

“ ‘Superman I’ had been a favorite movie of mine, even when I was at Cooper Union, which is a very fine-arts school. People were painting a portrait of the career that I could have as an indie New York filmmaker. The only thing that stood in my way from staying in New York — because I loved New York and I wanted to stay — was something more that I wanted to do that was inspired by ‘Superman.’ One day I would love to sing a song to the world, to bring something into the world that is beautiful in that sort of way.”
