Grant Morrison, legendary comic book writer, has recently been writing a special graphic novel for legendary DC Comics character Wonder Woman, and he has worked hard to do a very special interpretation of the character. In an interview with Nerdist, Grant Morrison lent his thoughts to the recent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, and how he didn’t like how Wonder Woman was portrayed:
“It’s finished now and it’ll be coming out soon,” he told Nerdist when asked about his upcoming comic. “I sat down and I thought, ‘I don’t want to do this warrior woman thing.'”
“I can understand why they’re doing it,” he continued, speaking to BvS’ take on Wonder Woman. Morrison added, “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,” he continued. “Marston’s Diana was a doctor, a healer, a scientist. So I went back to those roots and just built it up again.”
No wto be fair, I don’t believe Mr. Morrison has seen the entire movie, so for all we (and he) knows, she’s not a warrior all the time. We’ll just have to be patient and hope we get more insight into Gal Gadot’s take on Wonder Woman as Batman v Superman draws closer to its March 26th, 2016 release date.
