Grant Morrison Doesn’t Care for Wonder Woman in ‘Batman v Superman’


At this point it’s probably fair to say that Grant Morrison could be considered an authority on Batman. Whether or not you like his work, especially of late, he’s done more research, written more stories about the Caped Crusader than most in history. A broad spectrum of stories at that. So when he talks about Batman v Superman, I’m willing to listen.

He recently talked to The Nerdist about his upcoming Wonder Woman comic and revealed how he feels about the film, particularly our favorite Amazon.

"It’s finished now and it’ll be coming out soon. I sat down and I thought, ‘I don’t want to do this warrior woman thing’.I can understand why they’re doing it. I get all that, but that’s not what [Wonder Woman creator] William Marston wanted, that’s not what he wanted at all! His original concept for Wonder Woman was an answer to comics that he thought were filled with images of blood-curdling masculinity, and you see the latest shots of Gal Gadot in the costume, and it’s all sword and shield and her snarling at the camera. Marston’s Diana was a doctor, a healer, a scientist. So I went back to those roots and just built it up again."

I have to say, he has a point. So many people don’t understand Wonder Woman or what she really represents. (especially not Frank Miller. Read All-Star Batman and Robin if you really want to be angry about it)

Diana doesn’t have to be more like a man to define herself as a woman. Nor does she have to be super feminine. She simply has to be a strong woman who can do extraordinary things. Let’s see if they can expand on her character more in this and in her upcoming solo film.
