Having recently wrapped principal photography, the long overdue solo debut of Wonder Woman on the big screen has been on the minds of many a fan as of late and speculation will continue to snowball as next summer’s release inches ever closer. In the meantime, we will take whatever factoids are presented.
Recently, People caught up with DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson to help kick off the festivities of Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary. Although it seemed like such a simple thing to say, she let us know which major part of the iconic superheroine’s mythology will be absent from the upcoming film when discussing its tone:
“It will have its own tone and look – it’s beautiful. There is humor in it, there is real emotion in Diana’s journey in discovering the complexity of man.
“There is no invisible jet. Not in this iteration.”
Personally, I was never really a big fan of the invisible jet considering that Diana can already fly, but I must admit it’s an easier pill to swallow than seeing Superman drive a car or Spider-Man four-wheeling as part of toylines. If they are ever to introduce the invisible jet in a Justice League movie or a subsequent Wonder Woman sequel, I can only hope that it happens organically.
Anyone who has seen the awesome animated film Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths will remember that she stole Owlman’s jet that had cloaking capabilities – only its system fried and the cloaking could never turn off. A live action movie doesn’t necessarily have to replicate those events, but the right writer could come up with something that makes sense.
Furthermore, Nelson had this to say about the aforementioned 75th Anniversary celebration:
“There’s no better time than now. The overall conversation that’s happening in our culture right now – about having stronger gender equality representation in media and in government and in education and all of it just makes it the perfect time to see a character like Wonder Woman out there.”
Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2, 2017.
