The origins of the character of Wonder Woman in the upcoming film “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” has finally been revealed. Read on to learn more about this update.
In an interview with “The Hollywood Masters” series at Loyola Marymount School of Film and TV, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” producer Charles Roven confirms the “demigod” origins of the character Wonder Woman for the pic.
“Wonder Woman’s in it. We know that. She has powers, she’s a goddess. She’s a demigod. Her father was Zeus.” said Roven in the interview posted on Comicbook.com
Israeli Actress Gal Gadot, known for her role as Gisele Harabo in The Fast and the Furious film series, was casted to portray Wonder Woman in the highly anticipated movie. Gadot has stated that she has been participating in various training regimens to achieve a body that stays closer to the source material. Moreover, Gadot is also signed in with DC for future sequels which include a “Justice League” film and a solo character movie for her role.
“The biggest difference between what Chris [Nolan] did in The Dark Knight Trilogy – Batman, lived in what I called a closed universe, in that there were no superheroes in it”, says Roven, “When we embarked on Man of Steel…one of the things we were doing was we were created a universe that had a superhero in it.”

Uslan, Wesley Coller, David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is directed by Zack Snyder, who also directed the pic “Man of Steel.”
