Director Patty Jenkins On The Reasoning Behind Wonder Woman’s Wwi Setting

31 May 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In fiction, World War II tends to be the more popular choice when it comes to 20th century conflicts. Spanning six years and five continents, the Second World War was one of historic invasions (the Normandy landings), fearsome weaponry (the Fat Man and Little Boy atomic bombs that reduced parts of Japan to dust), and power-mongering dictators bordering on the caricature (see: Adolf Hitler).

WWII is therefore considered to be inherently more cinematic than, say, The Great War of the early 1900s, which was notorious for its complex politics, trench warfare, and rudimentary arsenal.

And though she was initially wary of the pitch, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins recently recalled the “genius” behind the film’s period setting while speaking with Entertainment Weekly. Those familiar with the source material will know that Diana Prince initially burst onto the scene circa World War II, but here, Jenkins outlines her reasoning behind Wonder Woman‘s time period. »
