I think it's just a rumor that Wonder Woman will be a kryptonian. Hopefully she's not kryptonian but an amazonian.
knocturnalzen10 - 1/7/2014, 7:53 AM
it can't be a Kryptonian WW she's a problem already as an amazon lol every movie she's in will end like MOS........................
ww giving the villian a Kryptonian necktie...............
Misterfan - 1/7/2014, 7:57 AM
hmmm .. wonder woman could start out as a villain.
aresww3 - 1/7/2014, 7:58 AM
That is bullshit. If WW is Krytonian, I have had a [frick]ing nough. Are you [frick]ing kidding me. I will be seriously pissed. This better be a [frick]ing rumor. They won´t get my money. Snyder and co need to be stopped.
RorMachine - 1/7/2014, 8:03 AM
See, that's not EVEN a rumor. Jett wrote that IN HIS OPINION, he reckons WW will be one of the ancient Kryptonians and every site picked it up wrong. Just sayin:)
Joe - 1/7/2014, 8:07 AM
I hope this is a rumor it would not make sense a Kryptonian WW is super-girl.
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/7/2014, 8:14 AM
Jett's opinion was that Amazonians would be Kryptonian descendants.
Klone - 1/7/2014, 8:15 AM
Kryptonian WW or tying the Amazons anyway into Kryptonians would simply be stupid and insulting.
Klone - 1/7/2014, 8:16 AM
Imagine if WW is named Kara is this version... that right, [frick]ing imagine them having WW be Kara and not Diana of Themyscira. Would you put such a stupid notion past these guys because I as sure as shit wouldn't.
knocturnalzen10 - 1/7/2014, 8:21 AM
because of WW nature , her being kyptonian means problems for everyone including the hero's lol
knocturnalzen10 - 1/7/2014, 8:25 AM
would be funny tho if she was, cause everyone else would be [frick]'d. WW is more heartless then zod , she's basically elektra with super strength
JoshuaDBr - 1/7/2014, 8:28 AM
I'm pretty sure this isn't true. But if there's even a remote chance, then I'd like to tak this chance to say, WB DONT YOU DARE MAKE SUCH A STUPID MISTAKE!!!!!
Klone - 1/7/2014, 8:32 AM
WW more heartless than Zod? This is the problem with so many writers doing WW, they make her heartless and a bitch that kills anyone who even says 'boo' to her. Have a flawed character with some development and turmoil? Sure, but [frick]ing hell, the heartless bitch personality so many writers attach to WW is annoying.
CaptShipwreck - 1/7/2014, 8:33 AM
If it ends up becoming true it would be worse than the mandarin not being Trevor
Kevwebsz - 1/7/2014, 8:35 AM
unrelated but.....i want ice sliding

KrazyForKomix - 1/7/2014, 8:42 AM
I hope she IS Kryptonian. Then we can enjoy the movie for what it is and NOT be concerned that there will be any ridiculous retro fitting back to the comics.

PLUS (for all those "realistic" banner wavers) it would be much MORE realistic to have a character on Supes level to come from Krypton (not some greek "gods").
Tevii - 1/7/2014, 8:56 AM
it amazes me how quickly people accept BS rumors as the truth.
There is NO WAY WB would make Wonder Woman from Krypton. That is just SHEER stupidity. They already have Supergirl and having multiple heroes from different backgrounds means they can make more money from toys and the "armies" of each nation/planet/species etc.
The Rock as John Stewart is someones dream. WB isnt ready to commit to another GL franchise yet.... and no big name, whether its Rock or Denzel will view GL as a viable franchise for themselves after the Reynolds debacle... and without a franchise they wont accept such a bit part in Superman v. Batman.... its all about business. if the business doesnt work, then the rumors wont happen
sintzu - 1/7/2014, 8:58 AM
i'm ok for the most part if studios and directors adjust things for the movies but having wonder woman be a Kryptonian is completely changing the charecter wich i hope is only rumor cause this movie has enough going against it
sintzu - 1/7/2014, 9:02 AM
if they do this does this mean we wown't get any mythological-super natural-majic charecters ? meaning all super charecters are going to be aliens or have alien powers ?
BluKnight88 - 1/7/2014, 9:10 AM
It would be great where some of the DC Comics characters revolve around Superman, winking on the fact that he is the world's first comicbook superhero. Kind of like how the Ultimate version of MARVEL revolved around Captain America.
KrazyForKomix - 1/7/2014, 9:14 AM
Sure! You can't tell me that either the world of Nolan's Batman, or Snyder's MOS could have magic in it. They'll most likely will follow Marvel's lead and make her science BASED like Thor. I can't wait to see the machine-tech they come up with that will be responsible for hiding Themyscira.
MadFacedKid - 1/7/2014, 9:21 AM
If there not going with a Myth take I could live with that, it worries me how things like Wonder Woman's lasso, or Aquaman's trident will come in to play since their Trademarked. Daxamites are related to Kryptonians but have a weakness to led rather then Kryptonite, I don't see why Amazonians can't be related but not have heat vision, and frost breath. Kryptonian mix with Greek gods?
MadFacedKid - 1/7/2014, 9:23 AM
xD But Amazonians aren't really that scientific so I would love to meet the genius behind their "Tech"
MadFacedKid - 1/7/2014, 9:26 AM
The Rock as John Stewart sounds ridiculous..
Forthas - 1/7/2014, 9:29 AM
While I support changing Wonder Woman's background to make it more "realistic" making her a Krypton decendent is utterly wrong - if true. If it happens it would just be another of numerous tone deaf decisions about this film that in my opinion has gone way off the tracks. From the bad casting for Batman, not tying in the ultra popular Dark Knight movies and casting a woman whose thin resume make it dubious if she can carry the weight of the role. Therefore if Wonder Woman was made Kryptonian it would in no way surprise me. It would validate what I have suspected for a long while... that this movie will fail.
Klone - 1/7/2014, 9:33 AM

I know it's your opinion... but IN MY OPINION, your opinion on what WW should be sucks.
VictorHugo - 1/7/2014, 9:33 AM
No, a billion times no!

Stop giving lame ideas to lazy scriptwriters!
Klone - 1/7/2014, 9:34 AM
Why does everything have to tie in with Krypton from now on? Last time I checked Krypton was a tiny little aspect of the DC Cosmic. Not thing the Spectre will be from Krypton, or Krypton's explosion creates the New Gods. Or Darkseid's son is Rao.
dnno1 - 1/7/2014, 9:37 AM
@MadFaceKid, keep in mind that a myth is a story that is believed my many to be true, but is actually not. If they go the route of Amazons being descendants of ancient Kryptonians, it would only be explaining what is true in the Snyderverse and the stories of the Amazons being made of clay would be just the myth that most people believe (but is not really true).
UltimateHunt - 1/7/2014, 9:46 AM
DC rumors are just the worse. Its funny how dc wants people to still try to talk about them since those year CBM's is all about the king Marvel. WW as from Kryptonite seriously WB? That's the best you got
UltimateHunt - 1/7/2014, 9:46 AM
Shaq - 1/7/2014, 9:48 AM
MoS suck. ROFL
KindredMac - 1/7/2014, 9:50 AM
I say WB SHOULD make her a Kryptonian descendant.

I posted this on FB earlier this morning:

"...Because I think using Kara wouldn't make sense since the ship crashed thousands of years prior. If they could make it so that the Amazons are human/kryptonian hybrids then it can work.
Perhaps if it was a female kryptonian that survived that mated with a male human and only females of this hybrid race carry the kryptonian DNA to give them special abilities but not at such a potency as a full blooded kryptonian such as Superman.
This can work guys, just think about it..."

Bah! Nonsense. They wouldn't do that. Silly rumors.
sintzu - 1/7/2014, 10:08 AM

(You can't tell me that either the world of Nolan's Batman, or Snyder's MOS could have magic in it)

IF they arn't going to do major changes from nolan's batman world then why are they rebooting him with ben affleck?

YoungThanos - 1/7/2014, 10:14 AM
Kryptonian Wonderwoman would be a deal breaker for me, I've been giving WB/DC a lot of passes but if this is true then they're just trolling at this point and Green Lantern must not have been a big enough flop.

Hey, why not just give this rebooted Batman a bow and arrow why their at it...

sintzu - 1/7/2014, 10:16 AM

the reason why magic dosen't seem to fit in snyder's superman world is because it was made like nolan's batman world wich was stand alon where superman was the only hero in and the justice league would be it's own world with it's own superman

this was said by zack snyder in 2011
sintzu - 1/7/2014, 10:18 AM

be careful what you wish for
JediPhilosopher - 1/7/2014, 10:26 AM
WHAAAAAAT????????? #@%%@$###$!@#$!@$#!@$#@$#@$#@#%$#@%@#$!%$#@!%$#!!$ NO. This is just the kind of thing these arsholes would do too. "Magic is too unrealistic, but how do we explain the gods... Let's make them kryptonian." NO.
