‘Wonder Woman’ screenwriter comments on the dark DC Extended Universe (video)

Collider caught up with Wonder Woman screenwriter Jason Fuchs this week and he talked about his experience working with Warner Bros. on a big DC Comics movie. Apparently they’re so secretive that Fuchs wouldn’t even admit that he’s writing Wonder Woman, despite it being widely reported online. But he did open up and admit he’s been a huge fan of DC Comics ever since he was a kid, and he talked a bit about how the DCEU will differ from Marvel and Fox’s superhero universes.

“This is what I would say. When you work for DC, it’s sort of like working for the CIA. You have a vow of silence. I think, as we speak, Zack Snyder’s gonna come in here and put a muzzle on me. The trouble with these things is that you really can’t say much. So I’m excited about everything that’s going on in that universe. And I’ve certainly read the same reports you’ve read about my involvement and what that might be, but I can only speak to it as a fan. I can tell you, I am someone who from a very young age was a huge fan of DC Comics. A huge fan of that key troika in the Justice League of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as all the other characters.

“So I am very, very happy that that DC Cinematic Universe is finally being fleshed out. I don’t think it’s any secret that people who have seen the Batman v Superman trailer, the Suicide Squad trailer can see that this is a very different cinematic universe than the one that Marvel has constructed over at Disney, or the one that Simon Kinberg and company have constructed with X-Men over at Fox. It’s a really specific, grand, slightly darker, slightly grittier place. As a fan of those comic books, a fan of those movies, I’m excited to see where it goes next.”
