David S. Goyer Says Batman v Superman‘s Wonder Woman Has “Nobility and Dignity”
In an interview with Comic Book Resources, David S. Goyer, one of the writers on Dawn of Justice, was asked what he was most excited for audiences to see about the film. I dig his answer:
Wonder Woman, because she hasn’t been depicted in cinema before. It’s great to get that iconic character out there. It’s great to have a female superhero of that stature finally make it to the big screen.
Goyer was then asked about the challenges of adapting Wonder Woman for the big screen:
I don’t know how much I can say about that. We just tried to do the character justice, no pun intended. We were aware that it was a big responsibility, that a lot of young girls and women looked up to that character. We wanted to make sure the character was depicted with a lot of nobility and dignity.
Goyer certainly doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to respecting female characters, but it’s reassuring to see him acknowledging Wonder Woman’s significance.
What do you think, friends?
