Wonder Woman's No Man's Land Scene Was Almost Cut

It's probably safe to say that superhero fans are breathing a sigh of relief knowing how much positive buzz is surrounding Wonder Woman at the moment (you can read our review here).

Of course, this begs a few questions: what kind of movie will the sequel turn out to be?

Leading up to the film's June 2 debut, critics have been raving about the first female-led super hero flick directed by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot. Most importantly, it follows Diana's journey as she learns both the good and bad things about the wider world and has to decide what her mission truly is.

In an interview with Cinema Blend, Roven said they were trying to focus on this Wonder Woman for the time being. "But it's definitely right in the pocket of what you're talking about". So just what in Hera's name is going on? The new movie explores her origins, but we've already seen her help Batman and Superman save the world (in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). The possibilities are endless. The film has its failings - it falls into a few bland narrative stretches, fumbles over its cardboard villains, and ends with the usual boring clash of titans - but the very existence of "Wonder Woman" makes a much-needed feminist statement in the crowded superhero space. Then came the trailers for WONDER WOMAN. It's the first time that Gadot's Diana really experiences and sees the violence of war up close and personal for herself, as she tries to just make it through No Man's Land to save a town of innocent civilians, who are being occupied by armed forces, on the other side. Painstakingly deciding to sacrifice her own life for those of her teammates, Diana individually defeats and dispatches Batman, Superman, and the rest of the team so she so that she can fight the evil alone as a Justice League of one, sparing her fiends. However, the film's success would seem to have solidified Wonder Woman's future in the DC Cinematic Universe making a Wonder Woman sequel a very safe bet.
