[Movies] Producer Says He's Excited Wonder Woman is in Batman vs. Superman Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.22.2013
He's happy there's a strong female superhero in the film...
Producer Wesley Coller recently spoke with M Live about the inclusion of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) in Batman vs. Superman and more. Check out the highlights:
On the announcement of Wonder Woman being in the film: "[My daughter's] favorite book is this little Wonder Woman flip book. It has the lasso, the invisible plane, the bracelets – every page has an image she's just in awe with. And something that's become a reality, being a dad with a new daughter, is that I have a special place in my heart for the idea of a strong, empowered female superhero being out there."
On a potential Wonder Woman solo film: "We're super excited to have her in the film. It will be a ton of fun, but at the same time, we've got to stay focused on the film we're working on now."
On criticism of Ben Affleck as Batman: "Anything you do that's culturally significant. or any time you deal with an iconic character or story, you're going to hear responses from every possible perspective… If anything, that gauges the relevance of a property or character, and it's invigorating to know people care that much. It inspires you to make the coolest version of the movie that you can. Ben is the perfect fit for Zack's vision for this story."
The film will also Star Henry Cavil, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne and releases on July 27th, 2015.
