WB Isn’t Confirming Or Denying WONDER WOMAN In SUPERMAN/BATMAN
Superman/Batman kicked off its production this past weekend by filming a football scene at East LA College. Zack Snyder was on hand to make sure things went off with out a hitch, and there was even a rumor, although I’ve heard it’s a bogus rumor, that Ben Affleck was there shooting a scene as Bruce Wayne.
While the film’s central focus will be on not only Henry Cavill as Superman, but also on Affleck as Batman, a rumor dropped a couple of weeks ago that set the internet a blaze. That rumor was we may not only get a Worlds Finest movie, but it might evolve into a Trinity movie complete with Wonder Woman as well!
Most people shook off the rumor as pure speculation. However, WB Exec Greg Silverman had the opportunity to squash the rumor, and did not. When asked by Variety about the possibility of Wonder Woman showing up in the film Silverman said, “We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that’s respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can. So everything that has been speculated are things that we’ve thought about.”
Silverman says the studio DOES know that Wonder Woman has potential to be a top box office draw. “Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it’s a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero,” he explained. He also went on to say that they have been trying to hash out a plan for years in regards to their other DC properties.
My own personal feeling is that this whole Wonder Woman thing wont happen. I believe they are using the rumor to generate more interest in a movie, that already has a lot of fans buzzing. That’s not to say however, that I would be surprised if she turned up. Just like we normally have to do with comic book movies in early production, for now, we will just have to wait and see.
