Patty Jenkins has directed Wonder Woman. This comic character made her debut on big screen in the movie Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Since then, fans have been excited to watch Gal Gadot reprise the role in her solo film.

It has been revealed earlier that this superhero film will show Diana Prince lying on the island of Themyscira. She is the Amazon princess, who is approached by Steve Trevor, an American pilot, to save the world from the ongoing World War I.

Diana Prince will be seen fighting with her powerful sword and magical gauntlets to attack the enemy. It will be interesting to watch how she does this with the help of Steve. Meanwhile, Ares is going to be the main anti-hero in this superhero film.

Director Patty Jenkins has shared some interesting details which fans need to know before they watch the film.

Jenkins says that she did not get a chance to choose Gal Gadot. It was Zack Snyder who had cast her as the Wonder Woman, reports Empire. When Jenkins learned more about Gadot she was relieved and appreciates her for her charismatic personality.

According to Jenkins, “…when she smiles or when she meets somebody and shakes their hand. That is the embodiment of Wonder Woman.”

2. Details Of The Costume Of Wonder Woman

The costume of Wonder Woman has always given her character the looks of power and grace. Gadot looks stunning in that costume.

According to Jenkins, Wonder Woman’s costume makes perfect sense to her. She also adds, “Michael Wilkinson is an amazing costume designer,” as per the aforementioned source. When talking about the music and theme for the film, she says that they had to embrace it as a different thing.

This drops a hint that fans might get to listen to a new musical theme in Wonder Woman. This is mainly because this superhero film will focus on the entire growing years of Diana Prince.

3. Jenkins Talks About The Color Theme Of This Film

From the film’s trailers, one can see that the colors of the Wonder Woman film appear different. When the aforementioned source asked Jenkins, she revealed the reason behind it.

4. Wonder Woman Is A Film That Draws Hope

Most superhero films give fans the aspiration needed in life, and Wonder Woman film will also follow the same path. Set in the period where World War I breaks out, Diana Prince will strive to save humanity and people from getting killed.
