Geoff Johns Compares Wonder Woman Director Patty Jenkins to Richard Donner

Shares

Geoff Johns, the Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics has been on location in London as the shooting of Wonder Woman has been going on and as we reported yesterday has had nothing but great things about the Production and today is no different.

Today on Twitter he had some encouraging and inspiring words for the Director Patty Jenkins and her directing style. While the Director needs no comparisons as she has directed the Award Winning film Monster and has won awards for directing episodes of The Killing, Geoff Johns compared her to Richard Donner.

Richard Donner as many know changed the way general audiences viewed comic book based films when he and writer Tom Mankiewicz came together to bring us Superman: The Movie in 1978. His passion for the film allowed for a more realistic looking Superman who appeared to literally fly using new technology as well as making it a more serious toned(at the time) story.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
