There’s been a lot of talk about how they are going to be messing with origin stories in the DC film universe. While we still don’t know if the horrible rumors about what they plan to do with Martian Manhunter are true, we do have the skinny on Wonder Woman’s origin.
Here’s what one of the film’s producers, Charles Roven, had to say to Badass digest:
The Amazons were created by the gods using the souls of all the women murdered by men. There was, when it was all said and done, one soul remaining, the soul of the unborn daughter of the first woman to ever be murdered by a man. That woman was Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, and she molded a figure of clay and gave to it the soul of that unborn girl. The clay was animated and became Diana, who was gifted abilities from the gods.
