Producer Charles Roven felt that WW I held special meaning for Diana. Amazons are skilled in hand to hand combats. They are also used to the fact that fight is an honorable thing. But all of this was changed in World War I when automated arms were introduced and the armies were fighting with guns, bombs, rifles etc. It was no longer what would he call ...

She would be injured, but she does have superpowered healing abilities During the first battle scene on Themyscira, Diana does sustain an injury/flesh wound on her left arm which the movie seems to imply was a deflected bullet. This happens when Antiope sacrifices herself for Diana (probably deflecting the trajectory of the bullet to save her) This ...

Its not entirely clear why Diana chooses to stay in the outside world at the end, but I think there are two theories that seem to have the most support from the movie: She Has No Choice When she leaves the island with Trevor, her mother tells her If you choose to leave, you may never return. Now, there's two ways to interpret this. It could be simply ...

What is the term “God” meant to mean in the DC universe? Exactly what it means in this universe...someone/thing/power who is worshipped as a "God". The only difference is that in the DC Universe (and Marvel Universe for that matter) is that some "Gods" are real. What they are is unclear or rarely explored or just waved away. In the MCU for instance, "Gods"...

In the film we only see one young Amazonian, Diana and we got to know in the end that she is and rest of the Amazonian seems to be older than her and we can assume all were created by Gods. So I think they didn't reproduce and they are all immortal (until killed) as their comics counterpart. But in comics they did reproduce: In The New 52 :The Amazons ...

Those Bracelets are called Bracelets of Submission in comics. The Bracelets of Submission are a pair of metal bracelets or cuffs worn by Wonder Woman and other Amazons. They were an original creation by William Moulton Marston as an allegory for his philosophy on loving submission and the emotional control associated with it in order to balance out the ...

It would appear that he's dead, but this is a comic universe; Ares is only dead as long as his death is convenient for story purposes. We do know from the movie that all the other gods are "dead", because Ares killed them all. Both Hippolyta and Ares confirmed this. Logically that means that yes, Diana can be killed too. But of course "dead" in a comic ...

I think the short answer is, they didn't, it just seems like it because of odd editing. See my update at the end for why. In practice, there's no way they could have done what appears to have happened in the movie. However, the movie makes a few token attempts to explain the trip, likely trying to gloss over the problem. The first open question is that ...

The extent of her powers so far are actually unclear, though as a demigod she appears to be on par with Superman in many ways, but not all of them. Keep in mind that, for the bulk of the movie, Diana didn't know her own powers as a demigod. In fact, that was exactly the thing Hippolyta tried to hide from her for her own good. Only at the end, after Steve ...

Note that in the movie, unlike all the other artifacts, the bracelets she had on when she was sparring the other Amazons, and she even had on at age 8. Now we know from the comics that her powers have gone through multiple revisions. The "classic" Wonder Woman that I grew up with couldn't fly, and her bracelets did nothing much other than deflect bullets. ...

Entertainment Weekly asked this of the director and producers. In short they saw it as a new era of warfare, making for a more interesting setting where everything is new to everyone. Add in the fuzzy morality of right and wrong, and who is evil or not that applies to both the setting and the story (in the eyes of the writers/producers), and it just made ...

The filmmakers have not said anything specific about where Diana gets her modern-day weapons, but keep in mind a few things: It's almost 100 years since the end of Wonder Woman and the beginning of Dawn of Justice, so she's had plenty of time. As we find out in the movie, there's nothing really special about the sword (at least, not in the way Diana thinks)....


13

The "only Gods can kill Gods" might be referring to power levels, not necessarily real God status. In the comics she is killed a bunch of times. Neron (a demon) kills her, the Anti-Monitor reverts her aging backwards and eventually into clay, and so on. It is only logical to assume her future enemies in the movies will be up to her level of power (even if ...

Now that Wonder Woman has come out, we can confirm that Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman is Princess Diana of Themyscira, using the alias Diana Prince that was given to her by Steve Trevor. The movie explores her origins as well. Hippolyta tells Diana that she was sculpted out of clay and given life by Zeus. The short answer is: we don't know. We know ...

As with many things in comic books, origin stories change all the time. By and large her origin has been she was sculpted in clay by Hippolyta, but given life by various means or Greek gods over the years. Wonder Woman is no exception to having her story changed over the +75 years she's existed. Per Wikipedia, in her Golden Age origin: Initially, Wonder ...

Wonder Woman's age varies. In this interview, the director can't even pin it down: “Well, I think she’s thousands of years old. Really, I think she’s a child but she’s probably 800 [years old].” Warner Brothers doesn't appear to know, exactly, either: Jenkins does go on to explain that this is merely her opinion of Diana’s age, and that there are ...

Composer Hans Zimmer says in this video interview: It was really important for me to figure out how to find, like this banshee wail ... but it had to be feminine. After, you know, a hundred thousand experiments that all went wrong I suddently remembered this friend of mine, this cellist, Tina Guo, who, ...

Did World War II happen? There is some evidence that a World War II happened. Lex says in Batman vs. Superman... "You know, dad was born in East Germany. He grew up...eating stale crackers. And every other Saturday, he had to march in a parade and waved flowers at tyrants. So I think it was providence that his son, me, would end up with this. " East ...

Since we don't see it happen in the movie, we can only speculate. There is some evidence that being shot might hurt (but not penetrate) since she feels pain when training early in the movie and is, initially, forbidden edged weapons. However, when Diana comes into her powers, it seems she obtains "god-level" power (or at least demi-god) and is probably ...

It's specifically stated in the movie that Diana is the only child ever "born" on Themiscyra. We also know that the Amazons are essentially immortal although they age but really slowly. We see Diana grow from a young child but we don't actually know how long that takes. So do they reproduce in the DCEU? No ...at least not without divine intervention.

It's a little unclear what exactly you're asking here, but I think underneath this all I see the question as: "Is anything known if there was a reference (of the real Armistice of Compiègne) planned in the film, or if more direct references were removed? As for references being removed we've heard directly from the director, Patty Jenkins: "Wonder Woman’ ...

Borrowing from my good friend Valorum's answer on SFF: it had hit the coral reef. According to the film's official novelisation, as it passed through the barrier, the battle cruiser hit a hidden reef and was holed below the waterline. Beyond, the enormous ship that had brought the Germans had hit the coral reefs. Black, gritty smoke from the sinking ...

But, Ares is supposedly immortal, you don't just kill an immortal being. Of course you can... Zeus is dead as are the other gods* (killed by Ares)... at least as far as we know... Thus, so far, we know that "immortal" does not mean "unkillable" in the DCEU. Some fictional beings are completely immortal (or very nearly so) in that they are immune to ...

That sword is mentioned as Sword of Athena in dcmovies wikia and dccomicsextendeduniverse wikia. Even on dcextendeduniverse wikia it say: The Sword of Athena1 is a magically-empowered Amazonian sword wielded by Wonder Woman in battle, replacing the Godkiller sword after the latter was destroyed by Ares. Some time after World War I, Wonder Woman ...

We don't know but it seems to be a magical artifact of some kind. When Diana decides to leave the island she scales the tower and takes the Lasso, Shield, and "GodKiller" Sword...all secured in the tower. YouTube video..the scene is at c.1m10s Since both the Lasso and Sword are magical it can be inferred that the Shield ...

No, the Amazons of Themyscira have no need to maintain the population as they do not age. As told to Diana by her mother Hippolyta, the Amazons were created by Zeus as an army to defend mankind from the corruptions of Ares. After casting Ares from Olympus, Zeus then created Themyscira for them as a place where time & disease could not touch them. And ...

By definition, God is (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being. (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity. In WonderWoman, Zeus and Ares are gods from Greek ...

The Ares is the source of idea of war and inspiration to constantly do it. When Diana kill him she also kills the planted need for continuing the fight. Because, as we learn earlier, the talk about armistice were already going on so there is no outside (Ares) need to fight while at the same time people have internal need to stop killing each other. The ...

The various powers/abilities/motives/motifs of characters in comic books changes depending on the time period, who's writing them, among other things. Superman for instance used to simply have superhuman strength and invulnerability, and got around by running and leaping long distances (he can leap tall buildings in a single bound!), and primarily gained his ...

While the plot of the the 2017 Wonder Woman movie movie is drawn from one of her very earliest comics, the character of Diana Prince appears to be based heavily on her most recent incarnation, from the "New 52" era. This would track with the other DCEU movies, which are based on the more modern (often darker and grittier) versions of the characters. In the ...
