Warner Bros. confirmed today that Wonder Woman will be showcased as part of their Hall H presentation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and with that announcement came the first plot synopsis. It sheds some light on what we should expect from the DC Comics adaptation, but it’s also far from the biggest reveal in the press release.
Before we get to that though, here’s that synopsis for the movie, which reaches theatres on June 2nd, next year.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Sounds pretty good, right? Here’s where things get really interesting, though. Originally, we all thought that Pan‘s Jason Fuchs had written the Wonder Woman screenplay, but it’s now been revealed that Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns teamed up to pen the version which Patty Jenkins will direct based on a story by Heinberg and Batman V Superman‘s Zack Snyder.
These two have worked together on Justice League of America and Wonder Woman comic book projects, while Heinberg has produced and written for Sex and the City, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and The Catch, so he knows all about female leads. Johns, meanwhile, is DC Entertainment’s CCO and as well as his comic book work, he’s working on The Batman with Ben Affleck.
Suffice to say, this is fantastic news for Wonder Woman, giving us yet another reason to be extremely excited for the upcoming adaptation.
