>“The truth is, with any of these superhero stories, it doesn’t really matter,” Jenkins told press including CBR at an event in London last week. “It’s not about World War I. It’s about a god — a superhero/Amazon — coming to man’s world and viewing mankind.”

So to everyone who was wondering what they were thinking when they set Wonder Woman during WWI, one of the ugliest, most brutal, and morally ambiguous wars in human history, the answer is exactly what we thought-- they put no thought into it at all.

>one of the ugliest, most brutal, and morally ambiguous wars in human history
Maybe she'll come to understand that over the course of the movie. That'd be interesting.

>>90504982
>they set Wonder Woman during WWI, one of the ugliest, most brutal, and morally ambiguous wars in human history
I mean, that sounds like the reason she decided "fuck it" so many years ago in BvS
>>
>>90504982
Morals are relative.
>>
>saying this the week Logan came out
>a superhero film that is essentially shot like a Western and that genre is constantly reflected in the setting and locales used
JUST
Why can't people just ducking think? Christ WW1 is the perfect setting for you to do some moral ambiguity that messes with Wondys view of mankind. But lolnah, s'just an old time period

At least you could try to paste the whole quote OP

>While Jenkins hopes the story of “Wonder Woman” is universal beyond its setting, she also said she appreciates telling a story in World War I — both for the creative possibilities and the fact that audiences typically know relatively little about the century-old war, compared to the much more heavily pop culture-mined World War II.

>“I almost very quickly loved it,” Jenkins said. “We’ve seen World War II so much. There are a lot of misunderstandings at play in World War I. The great thing is, it was not clear what’s going on. And that’s great for her journey.”

>“It’s the first mechanized war,” Jenkins said. “Mankind was changing their belief system of what they were willing to do and what they weren’t. The big and most interesting thing about World War I was how there’d been cavalry, and that was what you were proud of — be there, you’re fighting, you’re on your horse. Now, you’re just bombing people. And that’s what her observation is — ‘You’re just shooting? You don’t know who you’re killing, you don’t know what’s going on? Amazing.'”

>“That was my obsession, was tone,” Jenkins told reporters. “Coming in I was like, ‘OK, we have to be so careful that it doesn’t look like a BBC documentary, and so it doesn’t look silly that somebody has a superhero costume on.’ We have to hit exactly that pocket.”

>“It was fun in that way, to do it about a period of time that people don’t know, and to do it to a period of time where it was like that,” Jenkins added. “Nobody can do this. You cannot cross No Man’s Land. ‘She can block bullets — wait a minute!'”

>It was fun in that way, to do it about a period of time that people don’t know...

...and make WW1 Germans into nazis and real life generlas of the time into ares cultists....

I'm half expecting Diana to go "I am no man" and then cross it.
>>
>>90505385
Is there a single shred of evidence you have that they're treating the Germans like Nazis in this, or are you being retarded?

OP, why are you trying to create a false narrative?

At least hate the DCEU for things you didn't cherrypick.

FUCK this is 100% going to happen isn't it screencap that guy

Stop babbling conspiracies, people can only not like a movie. It happened with Female Busters.

Why do you suddenly think that it is some random guy from other thread? It's not even the only one shitting on OP there. Is this like the time when a guy posted that Rango was better written than BvS, and a Snyderfag went apeshit for 3 threads?
>>
It's because they wanted to set it in WW2 but then it would be too much like the captain america movie
>>
>>90505574

You're a mouth-breathing retard, you know that?

That anon was completely in the right to call out OP for taking a quote out of context, and the fact that you'd defend misleading shitposting because "hurr durr fuck DCEU" is stupid beyond belief AMD exactly the kind of shit that drags the quality of posting down across this site.

Fuck you, you stupid child.

It was that or WWII and they probably avoided WWII because of The First Avenger and the guy named Steve but they won't admit to it.

Also I'm sure they will put the same thought that Marvel Studios put with Captain America, at least Wonder Woman looks like she won't sugar coat the war as much even if the movie does turn out to be shit.
>>
>>90505260
Except that all reports say she doesn't give up on mankind because of WWI but later for unknown reasons
>>

Collider said "it doesn't need to be said", which means they don't say it but it's obviously implied

Friendly reminder that ABC, a Disney company, had their sitcoms talking about how bad BvS was while standing in front of Disney posters.

Friendly reminder that the anti-BvS narrative was packaged inside Spider-man comics to tell their readers what to say and think.

Friendly reminder that BvS won four Razzies, an award in which you pay a fee nominations and votes.

Friendly reminder that all DC news stories are always prefaced with any negatives they can dredge up, like when sites had to issue a correction story after falsely stating Ben Affleck was fired from Batman, but still made sure to mention that they didn't say anything about OTHER staff in the headline.

Friendly reminder that sites had a meltdown nationwide over Suicide Squad winning an academy award.

Anybody who says that there isn't an anti-DC narrative is a lying shill.

Because there was at least one film with far better make up and hair.

that just proves patty jenkins is a hack director who knows nothing about story structure, craft, or the genre shes been hired to direct.

Fucking kek

True.

Evey DC director and writer needs to be killed.

If dropping a nuclear fucking bomb on Hollywood would bring an end to these movies and mean that the Wonder Woman movie would be wiped of the face of the earth and never be seen, I would do it. Thats how fucking bad this shit is. The very idea of forcing myself to sit down and watch this movie literally makes me feel sick to my stomach, so o probably won't do it. I didn't even see the Superman/Batman movie. I didn't care. After the abomination that was "Man of Shit" my brain just couldn't take it anymore. These shitheads have no fucking clue what they're doing anymore. These characters have been permanently damaged by pop culture, the battle is over. They won.
