After the massive success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. and DC Films will hope to hit another home run with Justice League, which is just over a month away from its November release date. The trailers and posters have done a great job of displaying how vital Wonder Woman will be to the team, but we’re still not 100% sure how Gal Gadot’s Amazonian warrior will be different when we finally see Justice League.
As the release date approaches, fans are more excited than ever to see Wonder Woman back on the big screen and to help build anticipation, I’ve compiled a list of the five things I want to see from Wonder Woman in Justice League.
While Wonder Woman‘s invisible jet is often viewed as a joke or unrealistic, there’s an excellent way for the DC Extended Universe to introduce the high-tech plane in Justice League. We’ve seen in films like The Avengers that an audience is willing to believe in a gigantic invisible machine, so using that same technology, Wonder Woman could technically fly around in an invisible jet and it would look frickin’ epic.
Of course, I’m not arguing that we should see Gal Gadot floating through the air, but an updated version of the jet would be incredible to see, not to mention that an invisible plane could come in handy in future Wonder Woman movies.
References To Steve Trevor
Possibly the most exciting and well-received aspect of Wonder Woman was the relationship that Patty Jenkins created between Diana and Steve Trevor. The closing moments of Wonder Woman revealed that Diana is still emotionally connected to Steve, so it would be great for Justice League to recognise that the loss of Steve Trevor still impacts Wonder Woman.
While we might never see Chris Pine as Steve Trevor again, the character has still played a significant role in the DC Extended Universe, and it would be interesting for Justice League to acknowledge the character and his connection to Diana.
Set-Up for Wonder Woman 2
I’m not a massive fan of superhero movies working too hard to set-up the next film. Like everybody, I enjoy the occasional nod to a future movie but in many cases, too much set up has completely ruined a film.
Now that the Wonder Woman sequel has been announced, however, I would really like to see Justice League set-up Diana’s next solo adventure. There are a few ways they could introduce a new mission for Diana, but I think the most obvious option is to present a new villain or threat. Just like Batman Begins teased The Joker, Justice League could set-up the villain that Wonder Woman will fight in her sequel.
Return To Themyscira
Wonder Woman‘s origin story is one of the most popular in comics, and Patty Jenkins did an excellent job of introducing Themyscira (Paradise Island) into the DC Extended Universe. With that in mind, it would be amazing to see Diana return to Themyscira in Justice League.
We already know that the Island will appear in Justice League, but many are speculating that it will be featured in a flashback sequence. While that would be incredible to see, it would also be fantastic for Diana make her triumphant return to Themyscira, over a century after her victory against Ares. If I’m right in assuming that Diana hasn’t returned to Themyscira, then it would be both fulfilling and emotional to see her reunited with Hippolyta and her Amazonian sisters.
More Badass Action Sequences
We first got a look at Diana’s awesome fighting style in Batman v Superman, which was only a taste for what Patty Jenkins would deliver in Wonder Woman. Hopefully, Justice League will continue to give the character some incredible action sequences, which not only highlight her as a great warrior but emphasize her power in comparison to the rest of the League.
We’ve been teased with some amazing Wonder Woman action in the trailers; I just hope that when Justice League does land in theatres, Wonder Woman is up there with the rest of the League kicking ass just like she did in her solo movie.
