The next big DC Comics movie coming to theaters is "Wonder Woman." Gal Gadot made her debut as the Amazon Princess in the 2016 movie "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" and her scenes almost stole the entire show. Now, with the movie only four months away, director Patty Jenkins has revealed some interesting information in a recent "Entertainment Weekly" interview.

"Wonder Woman" pitched 10 years ago

Director Patty Jenkins has been working to get a female-led superhero movie into theaters for much longer than anyone might have expected. The director of "Monster" (2003) started to work on "Thor: The Dark World," which would have been her first superhero movie, but Marvel removed her for "creative differences."

It turns out that "Thor: The Dark World" was not her first attempt at a superhero movie.

She said that she pitched a "Wonder Woman" movie to DC Comics and Warner Bros. 10 years ago. However, the company declined the offer because they felt comic book movies were "male dominated."

Interestingly, "Avengers" director Joss Whedon also pitched a "Wonder Woman" movie but was shot down as well.

Zack Snyder made the decision to bring in Wonder Woman

It turns out that it was "Man of Steel" and "Batman V Superman" director Zack Snyder who finally convinced Warner Bros. to bring the Amazon princess into the fold. He ensured that the character would live on when he gave her some amazing scenes in the movie and now fans will finally get a female-led superhero movie, hoping to shake the stigma left by flops like "Catwoman" and "Elektra."

and Patty Jenkins are not going easy on Wonder Woman either. The villain is a very powerful being in Ares, the Greek God of War. For anyone who doesn't read comics, Diana was created from clay and is a demigod to the Greek God Zeus. She lived among the all-female Amazon race and defends them to the death.

One of her most powerful enemies is Ares, the God of War. "Harry Potter" actor David Thewlis will play Ares and should play a large role as Diana leaves her island to try to stop the ongoing World War.
