Wonder Woman will be more "optimistic" than Batman v Superman

Critics of the DCEU seem to have taken issue with the rather dour tone which permeated BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and SUICIDE SQUAD, even suggesting that they borrow a little Marvel-style humour. I don't necessarily share that viewpoint, I'm glad the DC flicks carve out their own path, but I would like to see future DCEU movies shift up the tone from time to time. According to DCEU producer Deborah Snyder as she spoke with Variety, Patty Jenkins' upcoming WONDER WOMAN will wind up being very different in tone than previous DC films.

Wonder Woman is very different in tone and style than Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. We pick directors who have their own points of view, so that each of our films will have their own personality.

President of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson added that "there’s a misconception that DC or [parent studio] Warner Bros. has made a conscious decision for all our movies to be darker or edgier. That’s not the case. Fans of the DC universe know that there are characters, like Batman, who are darker, but there are others like Wonder Woman, who are hopeful, optimistic leaders, and the tone of this film represents that. Patty brought a beauty and a sense of lightness or humor, and a little romance to it, it’s a very aspirational movie." WONDER WOMAN director Patty Jenkins said that her inspiration for the film is Richard Donner's SUPERMAN; doesn't get much more optimistic than that.

Superman’ was all about you. It was about you watching and realizing what it would feel like to have great powers and do great things. It was full of love and emotion.

Of all the upcoming DCEU movies, I think I'm actually looking forward to WONDER WOMAN the most. Fingers crossed that they can actually pull it off. 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.

WONDER WOMAN will hit theaters on June 2, 2017.

The tone was not the problem

Why do people keep saying that. The problem was the terrible script, the bad acting and the high school film class directions. The tone was the least of BVS problems. If Hack Snyder would of tried making a decent quality film instead of a cash grab BVS would not have been slammed so hard.

Tone! WB and Hack wish that was the only problem

Exactly. It seems like WB attached itself most to the least legitimate criticism by far, unfortunately.

As a fan of DC and Marvel, I see nothing wrong with the tone of the DC films. Is it darker? Perhaps. Batman is the Dark Knight so...it fits. I mean, it's not like Captain America is running around in bright blue, his costume is also darker tone like Supermans. You can't make people like a movie that already hate everything about it. Personally, I'm looking forward to Wonder Woman and I enjoyed BvS and most of MOS. Yeah, I can like both DC and Marvel. I'm loving these movies right now. Civil

I think the tone has been just fine throughout all three films, and people just need to accept the difference in tone from Marvel and their films.

Let me state the obvious. It is Snyder and Nelson's mutual job to say "Oh yeah, everything is fixed now." Earlier this year, Gal Gadot assured fans and critics that Wonder Woman will maintain the same tone as Dawn of Justice. She indicated that Wonder Woman was kind of a superhero-war movie.

I shall more readily believe that the DCEU is a cheerier place once others have seen the Wonder Woman movie. I will believe that Wonder Woman is a good movie once non-WB parties tell me that it is. And,

I shall more readily believe that the DCEU is a cheerier place once others have seen the Wonder Woman movie. I will believe that Wonder Woman is a good movie once non-WB parties tell me that it is. And, I hope tremendously that the 2017 film is a lot of fun and the movie of the summer. I do not like everything that Disney does with Marvel mythos. The MCU could use some competition and a possible comeuppance.
