Superman, Detective Comics, and Batman — shares on the film’s special features how Diana’s (Gal Gadot) take on violence separates her from her Justice League colleagues Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill):
“They all have very different relationships with violence. Batman is traumatized by violence to such an extent that he wants to control it. Superman’s power set is such that his relationship with violence is you’ve got to hit him so hard for it to matter,” Rucka says. The way you get at Superman is emotionally because you’re not going to beat him by pounding him down unless you happen to have Kryptonite. Diana comes out of a warrior culture that knows what that means in every sense. Diana’s never going to enter into combat without knowing exactly what it is she’s about to do. Her skill, her discipline, she never goes to the sword first.”
As seen in her origin movie, Diana began her Amazon training as a child under the tutelage of hardened warrior Antiope (Robin Wright), who wished to train the child as a warrior despite the wishes of Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen). She would later use these skills to battle Ares during World War I and again decades later in combat against Doomsday, a powerful, hulking creature who claimed the life of Superman. Diana will again be drawn into a fight to save the world in Justice League, where she’ll team with Batman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) to take arms against Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds).
The home release of Wonder Woman is accompanied by featurettes that further explore Diana’s character and the making of the film, with director Patty Jenkins taking viewers on an “exclusive journey” through five “A Director’s Vision” featurettes. Wonder Woman is now available to own digitally on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu, FandangoNow, the Microsoft Store, and the Playstation Store, and hits 4K UHD and Blu-ray disc on September 19.
