In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Wonder Woman producer Charles Roven talked about what comic book storylines inspired the film.
“I love the Perez – it’s my favorite run, personally. But really, we took things from or used all different versions of the comic throughout history for inspiration.
From the stunt team who actually look at the panels to help compose shots to her costume, and our villains, the characters. The source material is the source material. Really, the inspiration for Themyscira, if you go back to the original comics, it was more about just this ideal sort of paradise. At the time Greek inspiration felt very appropriate, but what Patty was trying to do was just say, “All right, what would that be for contemporary time?” When that part of the world isn’t quite so mysterious as it once was, what would our version of paradise island be?”
