Zack Snyder Confirms Wonder Woman "Does Something" in Batman V Superman

By Gary Cutlack on at

Those worried that Wonder Woman might only be in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as some sort of token effort to appease all these feminists we have on the internet these days are in for some good news, with the film's director saying that she does contribute to the action in the baffling comic book crossover.

Zack Snyder confirmed she has something beefy to contribute in an interview with Filmlink, where he said that Gal Gadot's character doesn't just pop up at the end to set up her own 2017 film as it initially appears. He explained of her part: "'s bigger than a cameo. She comes in and does something."

"We haven’t had a female superhero of that magnitude, and it’s an amazing opportunity for the world to get behind an amazing, powerful female character," he added, clearly excited about the opportunity to set up a new effects-laden hero franchise for his corporate paymasters.

As for the "Is she with you?" joke at the end of the spoiler-packed trailer, Snyder said: " gears into the drama of what’s happening, and if you see it in the context of the film, it completely makes sense that the two of them were trying to figure out who she is."

Superhero films have context now, too? Amazing. [Filmlink via Den of Geek]
