San Diego Comic-Con is coming up next week, and Warner Bros. has at last revealed which screenwriters are actually credited on Patty Jenkins’ upcoming comic-book film. Jason Fuches (“Pan,” “Ice Age: Continental Drift”) was previously thought to have written the final draft, but Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns are now credited as having written it from a story by Zack Snyder and Heinberg. The studio has also revealed the film’s official synopsis (below).
“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.”
Johns serves as Chief Creative Officer for DC Comics, in whose pages Wonder Woman first appeared; Heinberg’s past credits include “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Sex and the City” and “The O.C.” “Wonder Woman,” which is set to be released on June 2 of next year, is his first film credit.
