Both DC Entertainment President Geoff Johns and Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins have randomly decided to follow Arnold Schwarzenegger on Twitter. Whether this is coincidental or not is up to readers, but generally when these things happen the end result pans out. For some perspective, Johns recently followed Matt Reeves, and shortly after the man got the job directing The Batman.
Given that the film has already been shot, the most likely scenario is that Schwarzenegger will be called in to do some voice work or motion capture regarding a probable monstrous physical transformation on the film’s primary villain, which is reportedly Ares.
Arnold does of course have previous DC experience, having played Mr. Freeze in 1997’s Batman & Robin. He will next be seen in the Darren Aronofsky-produced Aftermath [watch the trailer here], and has also been shooting the fantasy adventure Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask with Jackie Chan [see the two action icons together here].
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.
Wonder Woman will hit cinemas on June 2nd, 2017 with a cast that includes Gal Gadot (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Chris Pine (Star Trek), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator), Robin Wright (House of Cards), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), Said Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Force Majeure) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).
