Wonder Woman Was Retconned After ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

When Wonder Woman first hit the big screen in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one of the final scenes left many fans wondering.

During a conversation with Bruce after Superman’s funeral, Diana said the following to her fellow hero: “A hundred years ago I walked away from mankind; from a century of horrors… Men made a world where standing together is impossible.”

To many, this was definitely not the attitude one would associate with Wonder Woman and it also made them wonder about just which horrors she’d faced in the past that would have her turn her back on her duty completely. However, it seems this has finally been addressed.

During the Justice League press tour in Beijing, Wonder Woman star, Gal Gadot, was very candid in answering about the change of Diana Prince between BvS and Wonder Woman.  Gadot said:

“We realized that actually, there is no way that Wonder Woman will ever give up on mankind. The reason why she left the island was because she wanted to make their life better and safer – they are her calling. So – I’m giving you a very honest answer – sometimes, in a creative process, you establish something that is not necessarily the right decision, but then you can always correct it and change it. So Wonder Woman will always be there as far as she concerns for mankind.”

It will be interesting to see if the change will be shown or addressed in Justice League when it hits theaters in a few weeks, but this retcon will likely be a very welcome change for most fans of Wonder Woman.
