“In the extensive interview amongst other things Snyder teased that Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman wouldn’t just be a cameo and that her role would be more important than everybody thinks:
“She plays a super-important part. In a lot of ways, she’s the gateway drug to the rest of the Justice League.”
Considering we already know that Dawn of Justice is the lead-in to the long awaited Justice League movie – and other solo DC superhero flicks – then this little piece of information shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise. Still it’s nice to hear it from Snyder anyway. The “gateway drug” comment seems to suggest what a lot of rumours have suggested that Wonder Woman is what brings the two heroes – and eventually the JLA – together.
Snyder also spoke about the backlash to Man of Steel and during the interview segment basically confirmed a future villain for the Justice League:
“I was surprised because that’s the thesis of Superman for me, that you can’t just have superheroes knock around and have there be no consequences…There are other superhero movies where they joke about how basically no one’s getting hurt. That’s not us. What is that message? That’s it’s okay that there’s this massive destruction with zero consequence for anyone…?”
