Wonder Woman Synopsis and Change in Screenwriters

While official images and set photos have appeared online for Wonder Woman already (due out June 2, 2017), we have yet to receive a proper synopsis until now.  Warner Bros. released the following press release leading up to the San Diego Comic Con later this month.  Check out the details below.

Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Screen Rant:

“’Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. 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.”

Another little tidbit to take away from the statement from Warner Bros. is that Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg are listed as the screenwriters for the film as opposed to the previously announced Jason Fuchs.  Since Fuchs’ name is not even mentioned in the statement it can be assumed that the script went in a much different direction than the early drafts.  This should be a good thing because Johns and Heinberg have extensive experience with both DC comics and writing for DC’s television programs on the CW.

Stay tuned for more details about Wonder Woman that will likely be released during ComicCon later this month.  I will keep you posted on the latest regarding Wonder Woman as soon as I hear any additional news.
