Geoff Johns Discusses Wonder Woman and Keeping the Comics Separate From Television and Films

Shares

Geoff Johns, the Chief Creative Officer over at DC Comics and the man behind all the television and films that we have and will continue to get, spoke with Comic Book Resources as we previously reported, about the upcoming “Rebirth” and during the interview he discussed the Wonder Woman film, as well as why the television and films will remain separate from the comics.

WHEN DISCUSSING WONDER WOMAN AND JUGGLING IT WITH THE TV STUFF

Yeah, I’m working on television and now our growing slate of films and I’ve also been doing more writing outside of comics, so all that is keeping me extremely busy, even busier as we get close to wrapping “Wonder Woman” [the film, scheduled for June 2017] and start gearing up for “Justice League.”

WHEN DISCUSSING CHANGING COMICS TO FIT TV AND FILM HISTORY

I know people have been talking about, “They’re going to make the comics like the TV shows or the films!” Why would we do that? These aren’t licensed comics. That’s boring. We already have TV and the films. And those are great. But comics are their own thing. We talked about “Green Arrow’ with the writer; all we talked about were comics. We talked about “Longbow Hunters,” Neal Adams’ work, all the great “Green Arrow'” runs that have happened — there have been a lot of them. If there’s something interesting that we see in film or TV that we want to nod to or bring over, we do it, but it’s really much more focused on the comic books.

Geoff Johns also spoke with a fan about Gal Gadot’s performance from the Wonder Woman set:

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
