Wonder Woman has been receiving a lot of acknowledgement lately in both cinematic and comic universes. The character has been appreciated for being a symbol of hope and strength. But it looks like the superheroine promotes more than that.
For a long time, DC Comics has refrained from confirming Wonder Woman/Diana Prince’s sexuality. Finally, writer Greg Rucka has decided to break the silence and recently made the big reveal.
The comic book writer revealed in an interview that Wonder Woman is, in fact, queer. The superheroine has officially been included in the list of LGBT heroes. Rucka stated that it was a “logical” decision due to her homeland Themyscira, an island isolated from rest of the world, home to women only. He added that this can be considered “queer culture” by some people.
During his talk with Comicosity, he said ,“It’s supposed to be paradise. You’re supposed to be able to live happily. You’re supposed to be able… to have a fulfilling, romantic and sexual relationship.
“And the only options are women.”
Greg Rucka confirmed from his standpoint that Diana Prince has also had romantic relationships with other women. “As [artist Nicola Scott] and I approach it, the answer is obviously yes. And it needs to be yes for a number of reasons.”
Earlier in DC TV series Arrow, Black Canary, played by Caity Lotz, was also unveiled to be bisexual. Although it was a surprise, fans and critics appreciated the program creators for this reveal.
Currently, it is unknown if Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman will also be portrayed queer in the upcoming DCEU movie. Furthermore, the studio has confirmed a standalone title for Harley Quinn, a character known for being bisexual/queer in DC Comics.
