For months now, there has been talk how Zack Snyder will explain the origins of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. How would fans accept her supernatural powers, without an origin story? Would her powers be tied into those of Superman?

Now, after months and months, we have an answer:

Wonder Woman is NOT a Kryptonian

Much of the speculation about Wonder Woman’s origins focused on one particular Easter Egg in Man of Steel. As Superman entered the fortress of Solitude for the first time and found the corpses of his fellow Kryptonians in their cryogenic pods, there was one open pod.

The theory which followed from this, which has its origins in the Man of Steel prequel comic, was that Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) had gotten free thousands of years before Superman’s arrival on earth, and set up a colony of powerful women on the island of Themyscira. These women became known to the Greeks as the Amazons, and Gal Gadot’s character was to be descended from Supergirl, making her a distant cousin of Superman.

Now, though, a producer of Batman vs Superman has come and spoken out about Wonder Woman’s backstory. Charles Roven said:

Well Wonder Woman’s in it, we know that. She has powers, she’s a goddess. She’s half… she’s a demigod. Her father was Zeus.

In the New 52 comics, Wonder Woman is the offspring of Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons & Zeus, king of the Gods. A result of this union, however, is to endanger the young Diana Prince (Wonder Woman), as Zeus’ wife Hera wants to track down and kill the young Amazon girl.

This origin will introduce a whole host of other characters, too, such as Circe and Ares, which we will presumably see in the Wonder Woman standalone movie.

The reason why Zack Snyder has opted for this origin for Wonder Woman is clear. Although it might have been convenient at first to tie the origins of the two characters with supernatural powers in Batman vs Superman together, it does not make sense when you consider that we are expecting to see Dawn of Justice introduce, at least, Cyborg, Aquaman, Green Lantern & The Flash, if not others, too.

However, confirmation of this origin for Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman does raise one interesting possibility. Themyscira, the home of the Amazons, could play a big part in the story of one potential Justice League villain: Doomsday!

Doomsday Coming to Batman vs Superman!?

The Amazons of Themyscira guard over a gateway to another realm of dark and deadly creatures known as Doom’s Doorway. We already know that Gal Gadot & co have travelled to Morocco to film scenes set in Themyscira, and that Doomsday is speculated to be the villain powerful enough to unite the Justice League.
