One of the most anticipated movies in 2017 is Wonder Woman. The movie, set during World War I, is a prequel for the character before she appears in the Justice League film later in 2017. Warner Bros. is going to great lengths to continue building up the DC Extended Universe and Wonder Woman and its reception is major to the strategy that Warner will take in future projects.

In an interview with USA Today, Wonder Woman director Zack Snyder spoke of the differences between Wonder Woman in her movie and when the character appears in Justice League. The biggest realization that Diana Prince realizes in the standalone film is that “humanity isn’t always the most kind and awesome thing.” The hope is that the character goes through experiences that will mold Wonder Woman, which stars Gal Gadot, into the character she will be in Justice League.

“It has its moments, but it can be brutal, and her coming to terms with that dichotomy is what we come to learn about her,” said Snyder. “And in Justice League, she’s fully evolved into someone who’s embraced mankind, partly through Superman’s sacrifice. She’s like, ‘All right, I’ve got to pick it up.’”

Warner Bros. producer Chuck Roven (Batman v. Superman, Suicide Squad), in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in December also commented on the differences in Wonder Woman and Justice League.

Wonder Woman is an origination story, so the whole dynamic and the plot moves are different than other DC movies. There's also a great relationship between her and the guy [played by Chris Pine] who crash-lands on her island and is the trigger mechanism for her going back to man's world.”
