Batman V Superman: ‘Wonder Woman’ Origin Revealed?


From Screen Rant

When Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel hit theaters, audiences didn’t need to notice the Wayne Enterprises logo within the film to know that DC and Warner Bros. had created a Superman universe in which a character like Batman could exist. Those suspicions were later confirmed when Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced, with Snyder having shown that the story of a superpowered alien really could be cast in a grounded, rooted, believable light.

But the confidence of even optimistic fans was somewhat shaken when it was announced that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) would be featured as well. Aliens are one thing, but a mystical princess from a hidden island of Amazons, worshipers of the ancient Greek deities – even clothed in some classical armor – is a stretch. Now, Diana’s movie origin has become clearer, casting the princess as the daughter of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, and Zeus, ruler of the gods.

There’s a chance that some may not be familiar with the story of Wonder Woman’s birth, since it tends to be out-shined by her superheroics. To make a long story short, Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons desires a child, fashioning one out of clay, and begging the gods to bless it with life. The gods hear her request, and grant it. Since the society is one of only women, Diana takes on the title of not just princess, but Daughter of the Amazons.
