Wonder Woman: What consequences for the DCEU and the character of Diana?

Cinema 7 June, 2017

The Diana we follow in Wonder Woman is not the same as that seen in Batman V Superman. So what does his solo film teach us about his evolution?
Shield hanging on the back, sword in hand and hair in the wind, Wonder Woman has landed today on our screens to tell us his original story and his first steps as superhero . Except that in fact, this is obviously not the first time we pass the powerful Princess of the Amazons. Diana Prince unveiled in the eyes of Batman and Superman in the well-named Batman V Superman , almost stealing the spotlight when she jumped in the middle of the action to help them fight Doomsday. But it was not known by what trials the superheroin had passed, what struggles she had had to lead and how disillusionment had been numerous for her. For, remember, before taking action, Wonder Woman has long hesitated, Joining in the struggle against the monstrous creature of Lex Luthor only once convinced that it represented a threat far too great to be ignored. But why did the super-heroine, who is the same kindness and compassion, have so long appeared to be indifferent to what was going on around her ? The answer is obviously in the movie Wonder Woman and in its terrible context, namely the First World War and its millions of dead. Did she seem so long to lose interest in what was going on around her ?

Without you spoiler the film Patty Jenkins – it would still be a pity – the editing of melty must still draw your attention on one of its most important elements. When Diana leaves the island of Themiscyra where she grew up free from any conflict, she is motivated by a single desire: defeat Ares in order to free men from her influence and end all wars. Except that she will quickly realize one thing. Ares is not solely responsible for the massacres perpetrated in the world, and men are equally guilty of the sufferings they inflict on one another . And they do not really need a god of war to help them.
Only Wonder Woman, who grew up on his journey on the front and in contact with Steve Trevor, also succeeded in distinguishing the good from the human being, which manifests itself in all sorts of forms. Let’s say it’s in her nature. And even though it is capable of seeing the evil of which men are capable, it succeeds just as much in distinguishing what is good in them . That is what drives her to protect them. But then why do we hear him say, especially in the trailers: ” I wanted to save the world, but the closer we get to it, the more we see the darkness that inhabits it .”? And above all, why did she tell Bruce Wayne at the end of Batman V Superman: ” 100 years ago, I turned away from humanity “?
In fact, one can imagine that after saving the world once, Diana simply felt overwhelmed by the history and the multitude of conflicts . Maybe after the First World War, she hoped that she would not have to put on her armor to fight the worst horrors … before losing her illusions in every new war. And perhaps she simply thought that it was time for the world to learn from her mistakes and to save herself from herself, leaving her costume and mission out of spite. What would explain why its existence has remained secret for all these decades! And it would have been necessary to await the emergence of a non-human threat and devoted solely to destruction – aka Doomsday – to convince her to return to action . As for the death of Superman, which deeply affects Martha Kent and Loïs Lane, she may have served as a catalyst to decide to join the group that Bruce Wayne seeks to mount. Because this time in Justice League, which will necessarily establish connections with Wonder Woman and Batman V Superman , the danger will not come from man, it will come directly from the stars. And there, Diana will have no choice but to take up arms again! What do you think ? She may have served as a catalyst for her decision to join the band that Bruce Wayne wants to set up.
