Yesterday, Warner Bros. revealed the official itinerary for its Hall H panel on Saturday, July 23 at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. The panel will include Wonder Woman movie stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Connie Nelson, along with director Patty Jenkins, but the announcement also revealed that the film's screenplay was written by DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg.
Johns and Heinberg both have a history writing Wonder Woman for DC Comics. Johns has written the Amazon princess in the pages of Justice League and in several major DC Comics events, including infinite Crisis and Blackest Night. Allan Heinberg wrote the five-issue "Who is Wonder Woman?" story in the pages of Wonder Woman following the Infinite Crisis event. Johns and Heinberg also worked together on the "Crisis of Conscience" arc of JLA.
Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Joining Gadot in the international cast are Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui. Jenkins directs the film from a screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, story by Zack Snyder & Allan Heinberg, based on characters from DC Entertainment. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston. The film is produced by Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Rebecca Roven, Stephen Jones, Wesley Coller and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, Wonder Woman.
