Wonder Woman Director Explains Film’s Approach to Fight Scenes

After nearly 76 years, Wonder Woman will finally arrive this summer in her first solo feature film, which is said to be packed with action scenes on a level befitting the Amazon warrior.

Speaking with DC Comics All Access at WonderCon Anaheim, director Patty Jenkins explained how the action sequences in “Wonder Woman” different from those of other superhero films.

“Really, every action sequence is from her point of view and for her story,” she said, “and so there was no point in the movie where we were ever, like, stepped out and were like, ‘Look at this extravaganza.’ It was always, you know, she witnesses a battle on a beach that rocks her world and changes her understanding of what warfare is, and then she comes to man’s world and she sees a war that everybody says is impenetrable and nothing can be done about it and she says, ‘What am I gonna do about it?'”

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers … and her true destiny.

Opening June 2, “Wonder Woman” stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
