Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will borrow from DC Comics' New 52 to explain Wonder Woman's origins, one of the film's producers reveals.
Although an early rumor suggested Gal Gadot's character might be introduced as a Kryptonian, BadAss Digest has unearthed a brief video clip in which producer Charles Roven explains,"She's a demigod. Her father was Zeus."
That follows the origin laid out by Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang in the latest volume of Wonder Woman, in which readers -- and Diana -- discovered she wasn't molded from clay and brought to life by the magic of the Greek gods, but instead born of an affair between Hippolyta and Zeus.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice also stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishurne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons. It opens March 25, 2016.
