New report hints at the long history of Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice

The more we hear about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the more we get a sense of the portrayal of the two main characters. We're getting the gruff, worn, always-ready-for-battle Batman, and the Superman whose powers have placed him in a kind of idealistic tug of war among humanity. It feels like we know these guys before we even see them, but Wonder Woman is a different story. Her appearance in the film is a big development for the DC Cinematic Universe, and fans everywhere are still wondering if the Diana we see in the film will be the Diana we love. Now it seems we know at least a little bit more.

Now, I don't personally consider this a huge spoiler, but there's always the chance some of you might, so I'll go ahead and say there are SPOILERS AHEAD!



Still here? OK then. This report comes courtesy of Umberto Gonzalez, who recently left Latino Review to launch his own venture, Heroic Hollywood. Here's his Wonder Woman scoop:

In #BatmanvSuperman, Wonder Woman is old. Very old. How old? In the movie there are pictures of her that date HUNDREDS OF YEARS!

So it seems Warner Bros. is not shying from Wonder Woman's immortality, and they're finding a way to fit it into Dawn of Justice even if Diana doesn't get that much screen time in the film. This could tie in to the rumors we heard last year that Wonder Woman's first solo film could turn out to be a period piece, set decades before Dawn of Justice. Of course, pictures of Diana could put the whole isolation on Themyscira angle of Wonder Woman's origin at risk, but it's hard to tell exactly how all this will come together at the moment. Personally, I dig the idea of Diana being this mysterious figure who's been in the background of human history for ages, until the Justice League comes along.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016.
