Cinemablend.com had an interesting piece on whether or not Wonder Woman was going to make an appearance in the Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman. At the recent Entertainment and Tech Summit, Greg Silverman, Warner Bros.’s president of creative development and worldwide production, addressed the possibility of Wonder Woman appearing in the sequel. “We have been doing a lot of thinking for years about how to best use all those characters and we love them,” Silverman said. “Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it’s a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero.” Which really isn’t an answer.
WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara had this to say about the Amazon Princess and whether or not she will get a solo film or appear in a large cast picture:
“We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that’s respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can. So everything that has been speculated are things that we’ve thought about.”
Tsujihara then addressed casting Affleck in the role of Batman:
“We knew going in that we had more information than the general public had. We knew what the take of the movie was, we knew what the character was going to be. We don’t take these decisions lightly. We thought about everybody — brand new people, established people. Ben is the perfect guy to play this role.”
A whole lot of dodging and no real answers. These gentlemen would make great politicians.
Batman vs. Superman arrives July 17, 2015.
