Speaking about her character, the director of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Zack Snyder revealed how he wanted the character to be.
During an interview with Wired, Zack Snyder revealed that he did not want the character to be “naive”. Moreover, he also revealed that there is a line in the Wonder Woman movie that was written by him. He said:
“When I started it, I wanted a Wonder Woman that was not necessarily naive. Not necessarily, like, a virgin. Actually, there’s one line in the Wonder Woman movie that I originally wrote. When they’re on the boat and talking about, like, the treatises on sexual pleasure, she says [to Steve Trevor], ‘You wouldn’t like it because it concludes that men, though important for reproduction, are not necessary for pleasure.’ That was my contribution.”
