Greg Rucka, writer of the Wonder Woman comics confirmed that DC’s beloved character Wonder Woman is indeed sexually fluid. This confirmation comes as no surprise to fans who have long suspected of the superhero being more than straight. She has long been a feminist icon and a positive role model for young girls and women as well as men.
Wonder Woman will finally be seen on film in DCEU’s movie of the same name. Gal Gadot, the actress who plays the titular character has already been widely accepted positively by fans after her appearance in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Now speculations have arisen that Wonder Woman’s sexual preference will also be reflected on the silver screen. In an interview with Variety, Gadot talked in length about Wonder Woman, her sexuality and what that might entail to the film.
“It’s not something we’ve explored [in the film]. It never came to the table, but when you talk theoretically about all the women on Themyscira and how many years she was there, then what he said makes sense. In this movie she does not experience any bisexual relationships. But it’s not about that. She’s a woman who loves people for who they are. She can be bisexual. She loves people for their hearts.”
“For her it was very important to not just portray her as a goddess, but to tell a very simple story of someone who believes in good and believes that people should be happy and lead safe, happy lives. We cared a lot about simplifying Wonder Woman’s agenda, because it is simple. It was her heart that we cared about, not her being this warrior. When you tell a story from the heart, all of us can relate, because all of us want to live in a safe, quiet, and peaceful world.”
