Shocker! Wonder Woman Will NOT Be Kryptonian In MAN OF STEEL Sequel

So recently Batman On Film posted their New Years mailbag, in which the site's owner Jett answered some of his readers' questions. Among his replies were a few smatterings of (supposed) legit info on Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel, but there were also some guesses and speculation. On such piece of - clearly labelled it must be noted - speculation came in the form of his idea that Wonder Woman's origin might be altered for the film, and she would actually be a decedent of those ancient Kryptonians we heard about in the first movie that set out to explore the universe. Now maybe because of misreading, laziness or flat out hit whoring many sites ran this as an actual rumor. One such site was Badass Digest, who have now reached out to their sources and confirmed that ...umm...Jett's theory was off! Well done lads. So rest easy - even though it was only ever speculation anyway, it seems Diana will not be a Kryptonian in Snyder's Man Of Steel sequel.

But didn't Jeff go on record to explain that this rumour was his own fanboy speculations and theories? It shouldnt have been a rumour in the first place.

I never believed it in the first place.

I knew it!

He told everyone on facebook that that was merely him theorizing. He never confirmed it, or said it was a rumour or anything. People just saw that and went with it. He is not to blame.
charlie2094 - 1/7/2014, 10:32 AM
Did anyone actually believe it in the first place? Really couldn't see WB doing this
CaptainObvious - 1/7/2014, 10:37 AM
Thank God.
MexicanSuperman - 1/7/2014, 10:37 AM
@ Jollem, a lot of people on this site believe every rumor, even if it is complete bs.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/7/2014, 10:38 AM
Goyer and Snyder aren't that dumb.
TheOneAboveAll - 1/7/2014, 10:39 AM
LOL @Ror...
The "Happy Now?" line got me laughing

Jett was asked

“How big of a role do you think Wonder Woman will be in BvS?”

Jett then replied

"Personally, I’d say it’ll be about on par with Scarlett Johansson’s first appearance as Black Widow in IRON MAN 2. I believe that it’s a cameo-plus type of role that will (hopefully) serve as a springboard to a solo Wonder Woman movie.

With all that said, I’d bet a year’s pay – in MONOPOLY money, of course – that the “Amazons” of this cinematic DCU will be descendants of those “ancient Kryptonians” who attempted to set up Kryptonian outposts throughout spacedom thousands and thousands of years ago. Furthermore, I say that Wonder Woman will be powered-down, if you will, relative to Superman because these Amazons have evolved and adapted to living on Earth for hundreds of centuries."

He was quite clearly giving his opinion and speculating yet it somehow and nonsensically formulated into a baseless rumor. Cannot believe he's had to explain himself, people need to learn how to read properly.

And how was this confirmed and by whom? We've just got Ror saying it's not the case.

True, Jett only postulated it, but who said it isn't the case? Who did Ror get that information from? He didn't even say an anonymous source confirmed or anything. Just that it wasn't the case.

How do you know, Ror?

Didn't even know this was taken serious

Diana is NOT impressed with these shenanigans.

SuperPickle - 1/7/2014, 10:46 AM
Never mind. I'm a dumbass
WakeOfMagellen - 1/7/2014, 10:46 AM
When I read the title about the possibility of WW being a descendent of Krypton for the movie??
All I could do was shake my head and roll my eyes (facepalm) :-P
Even the possibility..... wow ;-)
SuperPickle - 1/7/2014, 10:46 AM
Never mind. I'm a dumb ass and I misread the article. Duh. Plus, for some screwed up reason I can't get this site to function properly and reload pages on my computer. I deleted that comment and it's still there.
Omarvls - 1/7/2014, 10:47 AM
The most rumored movie IN A LONG TIME I predict the biggest Blockbuster of 2015 even more then

Age of Ultron and Star Wars E7
charlie2094 - 1/7/2014, 10:48 AM
Saying that, could see Themyscira being tied to Krypton in some way. Not quite sure how, but wouldn't be surprised if some sort of link between the two is made
JayJayCAW - 1/7/2014, 10:48 AM
pff I dont care, Gadot being cast is [frick]ing up the character already, her being Kryptonian would just make sense with that [frick]ed up logic :S

Looking forward to pretty much every other part of the movie except for her scenes and I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a big Wonder Woman fan and I know a whole bunch of life long fans who are beyond pissed and feel the same way about the movie.
CharlesLord - 1/7/2014, 10:48 AM
I was never gonna believe that she was a kryptonian anyway. Snyder isnt gonna be THAT stupid.
Klone - 1/7/2014, 10:48 AM
Yes, I am.

There's no reason they have to shy away from the whole Greek God mythology and magical aspects of Wonder Woman. It doesn't need to be "realistic", just cool and well-explained. No doubt Snyder and Goyer can pull that off. RELAX PEOPLE!
ALegendaryPanda - 1/7/2014, 10:50 AM
I can't believe so many idiots actually took one man's SPECULATION as fact. Then again this is the internet so I shouldn't be too surprised.
WakeOfMagellen - 1/7/2014, 10:50 AM
One thing I HAVE noticed a lot since Gadot was cast as WW was she needs to eat a sammich :-P

I have never watched ANY of the F&F movies (no desire to) so I looked up videos with her in them....
all I can say is?

Meh :-P
charlie2094 - 1/7/2014, 10:52 AM

There's really nothing wrong with Gadot as WW, she was cast for a reason, at least wait for footage, there's nothing to go by at the moment, besides the fact that they felt she fit the role and they've done a pretty good job so far...
MOOlawale - 1/7/2014, 10:52 AM
People took this news seriously?

In other news, can anyone tell me how to put gifs on here. Thanks

"In an update to a rumor that was never actually a rumor.."

RetroFit - 1/7/2014, 10:55 AM
If they do introduce the Greek gods, they'll basically have to rip off Marvel's approach to the Asgardians in the MCU. So either way, Wonder Woman's ancestors will be an advanced race of super-powered aliens that came to Earth. One way or another.
BlackRobin98 - 1/7/2014, 10:56 AM
Ooooh ooooh, how bout just writing her out of the script period to go home and be a house wife while MEN go to war. U guys realize that all Man-Of-Steel/ BvS is, is a Justice League movie without the name prolly as to NOT seem like they are "copying" Marvel's Avemgers
MOOlawale - 1/7/2014, 10:56 AM
@Jollem that's what pisses me off about the majority of people on this site. Most of them are Marvelites. There's not a single article on how bad iron man 3 was or on Thor the Fun World. But there's tons on MOS and each one isn't usually positive, and if it is, it still gets a lot of hate
TheWolverine08 - 1/7/2014, 10:57 AM
These rumors shall never end.
GeekyCheekyChic - 1/7/2014, 10:57 AM
No shit. Color me shocked. What's the next rumor ? Bruce Waynes family traces back to the kryptonians and that's why Batman is so bad ass and super sleuthy
JasonBlue - 1/7/2014, 10:59 AM
HAHA that would have been such a bad decision.... would have offended the entire world.
dnno1 - 1/7/2014, 11:01 AM
Yeah, if he were so dead sure about it, he would have bet his pay in real cash.
Nomis - 1/7/2014, 11:01 AM

@Omarvls there is no way it outdoes the Avengers.

1. Avengers made 1.5 billion. MOS made 600 million.

2. AvengersAOU has 4 films building up to it. BvS has 1.

3. Avengers has bigger actors in its film.

4. Avengers right now has more love from the General audience (Especially overseas) then Superman does.

5. The Avenegers have zero big block buster films coming out around it. BvS has Dispicable me minions, and Ant Man. Neither will gross more then BvS but both will be able to take a little money away.

ThePowerCosmic - 1/7/2014, 11:05 AM

Not true. Plenty of negative articles have been written about IM3 on this site...But If you go to any IM3 article You will see plenty of criticism. Also, did you happen to see what movies were chosen for "best and worst of the year" on this site. Then Again MoS got runner up for Worst.

There is plenty of hate in both directions on this site...don't be a baby.
