Screenwriter Jason Fuchs has been reported to be writing Warner Bros.'s Wonder Woman, and although neither the he nor the studio have yet confirmed that, he isn't shy to talk about the character and DC's film slate. In an interview with Collder, Fuchs spoke about his reverence for Wonder Woman as a character, and his history with the DC Universe.
“This is what I would say. When you work for DC, it’s sort of like working for the CIA. You have a vow of silence,” Fuchs said, explaining his inability to comment further on his potential position in the writer’s room. “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.”
While this would seem to indicate Fuchs does indeed have some connection to some project in the DC Cinematic Universe – or at least its shepherd, Zack Snyder – it’s no confirmation. The writer/actor did offer further thoughts on the state of DC’s film universe, however.
”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 v 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.”
Wonder Woman is scheduled for a June 23, 2017 release.
