Last year we heard rumours that Jason Fuchs would be writing the Wonder Woman movie, only for Warner and DC to stay silent on the matter. While Fuchs still won’t go as far as to confirm his involvement, his reaction to a question direct by Collider was that, "Warners has been very kind to me, I have to say".
"When you work for DC, it’s sort of like working for the CIA. You have a vow of silence," continues Fuchs. "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 Vs 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."
Nice to see Fuchs making room for a subtle dig at the MCU there. That feud looks alive and well! Wonder Woman is set to open on June 23 2017.
