Comic book writer Grant Morrison spoke with Nerdist on his latest projects, one being Wonder Woman: Earth One for DC Comics, in which he commented on Wonder Woman’s portrayal in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being something he believes the creator of the character, William Marston would had not wanted.
I sat down and I thought, “I don’t want to do this warrior woman thing.” I can understand why they’re doing it, I get all that, but that’s not what [Wonder Woman creator] William Marston wanted, that’s not what he wanted at all! His original concept for Wonder Woman was an answer to comics that he thought were filled with images of blood-curdling masculinity, and you see the latest shots of Gal Gadot in the costume, and it’s all sword and shield and her snarling at the camera. Marston’s Diana was a doctor, a healer, a scientist. So I went back to those roots and just built it up again.
