Maybe not so 'Wonder'ful? Wonder Woman is “such a mess”

By Beth McConnell Warner Bro’s have been having some problems, as of late. In addition to their most recent revisions of the DC Extended Universe not doing as well as expected, a former employee of the studio has exposed some harsh allegations towards the up-coming Wonder Woman movie. The former employee claims the production to be ‘a mess’, in an outspoken letter submitted to the website, Pajiba. The letter was posted under the name, Gracie Law, in reference to Kim Cattrall’s subordinate role in Big Trouble in Little China and supposedly been in existence since Man of Steel came out. Suicide Squad was the final nail in the coffin for the employee, so it was posted out.

The letter is harshly directed towards Warner Bros CEO, Kevin Tsujihara’s decision to lay off numerous workers in order to support filmmakers, and producer, Zack Snyder’s creative contribution.

“Zack Snyder is not delivering.”

She expresses,

“Zack Snyder is not delivering. Is he being punished? Assistants who were doing fantastic work certainly were. People in finance and in marketing and in IT. They had no say in a movie called Batman V Superman only having 8 minutes of Batman fighting Superman in it, that ends because their moms have the same name. Snyder is a producer on every DC Movie. He is still directing Justice League. He is being rewarded with more opportunity to get more people laid off. I’m assuming you yourself haven’t been financially affected in any real way. You and your studio are the biggest lesson about life one can learn: The top screws up and the bottom suffers. Peter Jackson phones it in and a marketing supervisor has to figure out a plan B for house payments.”

Hiding behind an awesome trailer? Hiding behind an awesome trailer?

In reference to most recent Suicide Squad, and San Diego Comic Con’s showing of Justice League and Wonder Woman trailers, she adds:

“What are you even doing? I wish to God you were forced to live out of a car until you made a #1 movie of the year. Maybe Wonder Woman wouldn’t be such a mess. Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over.”

Despite Suicide Squad being a financial hit at the box office, it’s critical acclaim and much hate from fans appears to be causing the stir from inside the studio.

Tsujihara acknowledges allegations surrounding laying off workers, and claims it was in the best interest for the films.

“At Warner Bros., we work with the world’s most extraordinary storytellers, and our focus has always been to provide the creative environment and financial resources they need to realize their vision. Our commitment to that won’t change. In fact, we’re investing more than ever in our film and television productions.”

Wonder Woman director, Patty Jenkins, has since hit back at the post via Twitter, claiming that the allegations are bogus, saying:

“Woah, just saw this press about WW having problems. Are they serious? This is some made up bs right here. Made up! Produce a source, anyone.”

“You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinfo.”
