‘Wonder Woman’ Film to Pay Homage to the 1970s Television Series with Easter Eggs
According to Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins, the Wonder Woman movie will feature some “subtle” Easter eggs in reference to the Wonder Woman television series.
The series ran on ABC from 1975 to 1979 with Lynda Carter playing the iconic Amazonian Princess.
The importance of the 1970s series is certainly not something that Jenkins is keen on letting viewers forget and during an interview with Sci-Fi Now, she said that the Easter eggs will be her way to pay tribute to the show, which partly started her love of the character.
Jenkins told Sci-Fi Now:
“I feel like we’re homaging [the TV show] in a big, spiritual way. It’s partly what inspired me and started my love affair with Wonder Woman. And so, more than anything, I think we’re homaging the spirit of that Wonder Woman. That spirit was very true to the original spirit, and I think her optimism and positivity and warmth came from that show in a clear way … There are little moments in the film where we got to do really subtle homages [read: Easter Eggs]. I’ll be curious to see if people get them because they are very subtle!”
Sounds like an amazing way to incorporate the Wonder Woman series of the past to the past to the most-current adaptation of Diana Prince.
Let us know what you think about the tribute in the comments below.
So, if you happen to enjoy nostalgia and have watched the old television show, be sure to keep a look out for Jenkins’ Easter eggs when the film comes out in 28 days!
Wonder Woman charges into theaters on June 2, 2017.
