Patty Jenkins Responds To WONDER WOMAN Diversity Concerns
Could a lack of diversity be the next big issue in the DCEU, at least for the Wonder Woman movie? Following the debut of the first official look at Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Robin Wright as General Antiope and Lisa Loven Kongsli as Menalippe, social media's collective consciousness specifically called out the film for a perceived lack of diversity. However, director Patty Jenkins told the cage-rattlers that the have nothing to worry about.
The Wonder Woman movie debuted its first official look at the Amazon warriors of Themyscira and they certainly looked fierce. However, social media was quick to point out a distinct lack of diversity.
Wonder Woman hits US theaters on June 23, 2017. Jenkins directs from a script penned by Jason Fuchs. The film will open at the box office, facing competition from The Divergent Series: Ascendant (06/09), Tom Cruise's Mummy reboot (06/09), World War Z 2 (06/09), Kingsman 2 (06/13) and Transformers 5 (06/23). Gal Gadot stars as the titular hero, with Connie Nielsen portraying her mother, Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Robin Wright co-stars as General Antiope while Lisa Loven Kongsli plays Lt. Menalippe. Chris Pine makes his DCEU debut as Steve Trevor and Lucy Davis plays Etta Candy, "Diana Prince's" best friend. Rounding out the cast are Danny Huston, Saïd Taghmaoui and Elena Anaya. Following her first standalone feature film, Wonder Woman will next bee seen in Justice League Part One (11/17/2017).
