Robin Wright, who plays Antiope, Wonder Woman’s aunt and mentor, said it was “really, really empowering” being on an estrogen-filled set surrounded by amazing, strong women.
“And we were strong. We didn’t just feel strong. We were strong,” Wright said of their rigorous exercise regimen. “All of us -- we trained every day, horseback riding, martial arts training, weight lifting and 2,000 to 3,000 calories a day.”
Director Patty Jenkins said she’s a “huge believer in the story of becoming a hero” and hopes everyone who sees the film feels inspired.
“I hope they have a great time and I hope they love it and I hope they laugh, but I also hope they feel inspired to be a hero in their own life,” she said. “And learn love and thoughtfulness as well as strength.”
