Although last year’s Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad, both received extended cuts when they arrived on Blu-Ray and DVD, DC fans will possibly be disappointed to learn Wonder Woman will not follow suit.
During a press-junket for the film, director Patty Jenkins shot down the possibility of an alternate version of the film, saying:
“You know, it’s not like a long journey didn’t happen but what amazes me is how little has actually changed from the first cut other than tightening. Little changes to the final battle, that was really it. I think that what I ended up finding about the final battle was I was hitting emotional points for Diana that I really wanted to hit but I felt a craving for some other kinds of emotional gratification and engagement that we tried to accentuate even more. I think what you learn is rhythm, tone, humor, where the jokes are happening but in our case, I just now can finally say all this. We didn’t cut one scene in this movie nor did we change the order of one scene in this movie from the script that we went in shooting with.”
Early social media reactions have hugely praised Wonder Woman, one critic calling it “the best DC movie since The Dark Knight.” However, a false rumor circulated the internet, claiming critics were calling the film a “mess,” prompting Jenkins to respond:
“That was actually the most frustrating thing when somebody made up the rumor that it was a mess and I was like, “Really? A mess? It’s the opposite, it’s so steady, it’s been so even keel and steady.” It’s been such an opposite experience… The rumor mill of these movies has been quite something to behold. I tried to learn to tune it out but the one thing I want to say to readers because it truly was stunning to me to watch is you truly can’t believe how absolutely false certain things are until you’re on the inside of these things. You’re like there’s not even kind of where there’s smoke, there’s fire. There is absolute lies.”
