Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman made her reside motion theatrical debut final yr in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, aiding the Man of Metal and Caped Crusader within the battle towards Doomsday. On the finish of that film, Diana informed Bruce Wayne that she walked away from mankind 100 years in the past, however this revelation contrasted with the Wonder Woman movie earlier this yr, the place she was nonetheless prepared to take care of humanity each after World Conflict I and within the current day. In accordance with Gal Gadot, it is a deliberate retcon, as through the improvement of Marvel Lady, the artistic staff realized the eponymous heroine would not have turned her again like that. Gadot defined:
We realized that truly, there isn’t a method that Marvel Lady will ever hand over on mankind. The rationale why she left the island was as a result of she needed to make their life higher and safer; they’re her calling. So I am supplying you with a really trustworthy reply: typically, in a artistic course of, you determine one thing that’s not essentially the best choice, however then you’ll be able to at all times right it and alter it. So Marvel Lady will at all times be there so far as she issues for mankind.
There you could have it. Opposite to what was teased about Marvel Lady’s previous in Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice, Gal Gadot’s feedback through the Justice League press tour in Beijing (through Batmancanseeyou) lay out that within the century since Diana first stepped foot on man’s world and defeated Ares following Steve Trevor‘s sacrifice, she’s been persevering with her heroic duties. It is an attention-grabbing artistic shift that seemingly fractures the DC movies universe continuity a bit bit, nevertheless it seems like this transfer was an efficient solution to have Gadot’s model of the Themysciran princess higher resemble her comedian e book counterpart.
After all, with 100 years having handed between Diana’s origin story in Marvel Lady to her encounter with Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice, there’s nonetheless loads to be revealed about Diana’s previous on this continuity. Justice League will reunite moviegoers with the up to date Diana, the place she’ll be preventing Steppenwolf alongside Batman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg, however 2019’s Wonder Woman 2 will reportedly be a interval piece similar to its predecessor, with this journey set in the 1980s. So though Diana hasn’t technically strayed from her heroic path underneath this new path, that is to not say that one thing could not occur within the sequel (the place she’ll supposedly be partaking Soviet Union forces) that precipitated her to be so jaded by the point Batman v Superman rolls round.
