1978 ‘Superman’ Inspiration For Patty Jenkins ‘Wonder Woman,’ Details Revealed
The classic 1978 “Superman” has inspired many comic book movies over the years. Although fans are currently in love with Henry Cavill’s version of the Man of Steel, Christopher Reeve’s is still considered the best Clark Kent/Superman on screen.Advertisement
Unlike Reeve’s version of Superman, the current version played by Henry Cavill has failed to show the optimism the hero is known for in the DC Universe; however, it looks like “Wonder Woman” has learned from the 1978 Superman.
During an interview, “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins revealed new information that brings hope for the female standalone movie. She revealed that the 1978 Superman was her inspiration for filming Wonder Woman.
While talking with Variety, the director said, “‘Superman’ was all about you, It was about you watching and realizing what it would feel like to have great powers and do great things. It was full of love and emotion.”
Deborah Snyder also revealed, “Wonder Woman is very different in tone and style than ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Suicide Squad.’” She added that they “pick directors who have their own points of view, so that each of our films will have their own personality.”
Batman v Superman received mixed reviews. The title was branded as a dark epic film by DCEU. However, “Wonder Woman” is suggested to be optimistic, unlike Zack Snyder’s film.
Earlier, “Wonder Woman” movie was a victim to criticism even before its release.
The female standalone movie will be released on June 2, 2017. Currently, it is under post-production. Moreover, “Wonder Woman” will be playing a primary role in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League.”
