Wonder Woman Director Talks About The Movie's Humorous Tone

Wonder Woman will have feel decidedly different from its DCEU predecessors. According to director Patty Jenkins, the film will have a much lighter and more humorous tone than Suicide Squad or Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"I think there's funny things in both of those films but we definitely went for making a funny film," Jenkins told ComicBook.com. "I was always basing it on Superman and on Indiana Jones. I wanted to make a classic film where you're laughing and then you're in love with them and then they're off on a fun great adventure. It's definitely the point and the pursuit of our film." Jenkins said that her goal with the movie was to create a "grand film," that pulled in lots of different elements, all of which were integral to Diana's story. "I hope there's a little of something for everyone," she said.

Wonder Woman will be taking on Ares, the God of War, in the film, a villain who has been left so mysterious that we're not even sure who will be playing him (although we think we might have an idea). However, Jenkins said that he was the perfect villain for Diana to take on in her solo debut, with the director calling him "the biggest villain" of Wonder Woman's world. "I think if you're gonna start off big, start off right with the greatest villain," she said. "I think that was a great delight, to place him in the world in a way where he believes in exactly what a real, true Ares does, and what kind of havoc would Ares wreak on this planet, and how?"

With a compelling villain and a lighter tone, it seems as though Wonder Woman might be the first step in course-correcting for the troubled DCEU. Wonder Woman will hit theaters on June 2. In the meantime, take a look at the character's dark history and read up on some easter eggs you may have missed in the trailer.
