Zack Snyder Originally Intended to Make Wonder Woman Half Kryptonian
Published 7 months ago
Zack Snyder probably doesn’t have any more connections with the DCEU moving forward, so now he’s just been open about what his original plans were with no worry of breaking any NDAs.
What’s interesting is, during one of Snyder’s Full Circle events (via Dexerto), he revealed that he originally wanted to make Wonder Woman and the Amazons half Kryptonian. Watch this:
“[We thought] Zeus could possibly be Kryptonian so that Wonder Woman’s powers… anyway, you can sort of see where that’s going.
Since Zeus is said to be the father of Diana in the lore, that would make her half Kryptonian, explaining why she has her powers and is more formidable than a lot of the other Amazons. Snyder continues:
“The whole thing of whether or not magic or gods… there’s a version of where you’re like, ‘That’s cool, I guess,’ then there’s the scientific aspect. You have the pathology of wondering where gods come from. We had played around with that quite a bit.”
They even reveal that it was Wonder Woman villain Ares that crashed the Kryptonian ship that we see in Man of Steel. It’s not clear if he did it on purpose, but in the Snyder Cut, we see Ares fighting alongside the other gods against Darkseid. Perhaps they misspoke and meant to reveal that it was Darkseid who crashed it?
I’ll admit, a lot of Snyder’s ideas really sound like they’re going to piss a lot of fans off, but his interpretation for the characters do seem very daring. I don’t even think the comics are gutsy enough to have Lois Lane be in a relationship with Batman, much less have her get pregnant with his child.
For now, The Flash is expected to send the Snyderverse off, and it’s set to hit cinemas on June 16.
