‘Wonder Woman’ Producer Charles Roven on Making the First Female Led Superhero Movie

     June 3, 2017

With Wonder Woman now playing around the world, I can finally post my interview with producer Charles Roven. I wanted to post it right after I sat down with him, but since we discussed some slight spoilers, I decided I needed to wait until you had the opportunity to see the film.

During the interview, Roven talked about the development of the script, the tone, how director Patty Jenkins’ vision changed the film, the lack of deleted scenes, how the reshoots only involved small bits here and there, if there was any trepidation about having Wonder Woman kill after the backlash over making Superman a killer in Man of Steel, the stigma surrounding reshoots and long productions, future projects like Justice League, Triple Frontier and a lot more.
