Why 84?. Jenkins: "That era (1917) was the beginning of the modernized world. This is its entirely own 80s movie and its own thing reason why it really was mankind at its best and worst. We’re aware of some of the prices of our behavior nowadays but back then we weren't. Great music and elegant and incredible things of the 80s too but also revealing the worst of us. To have Wonder Woman visit a period of time as us at our most extreme."

What can you tell us about making this film? Momoa: I’ve said it before I have this rash right here (points to thigh) from James, wearing the harnesses all the time. We drowned Yaya.
Yaya: One of the challenges I thought I would have to face was having to swim. I can explain. I get the audition, I send in the tape and I get the call from my agent. I tell my agent this is great and everything but I can’t swim. I just did Baywatch and all these water movies but I can’t swim. So I secretly learned and taught myself how to swim
"They’re wet 20 oz denim (his pants), they’re not leather," Momoa said. "He’s like get into this cool stance, do it cooler, and I’m like James I’m bottoming out here!”

Yaya is a fan of Batman and the Joker, so he would like to see a team-up with the Joker, but that’s my own thing I’d like to see.
