On an all-female island, Greg Rucka remarked, the concept of “being gay” does not exist.
Wonder Woman’s writer has admitted that the superhero character has “clearly” been in love with other women.
During a recent interview with Comicosity, Greg Rucka discussed the warrior queen’s sexuality when questioned about her life on the all-female island of Themyscira.
“When you consider giving Themyscira its due, the first question that comes to mind is, ‘How can they not all be in same-sex relationships?’ “Is that correct?” he inquired. “It doesn’t make any sense otherwise.”
On the imaginary island, “being gay” is not a concept, according to Rucka. “An Amazon doesn’t say, ‘You’re queer,’ to another Amazon. They don’t have any. He stated, “The concept does not exist.” “Are we now implying that Diana has had connections with other women?” “Of course, the answer is yes.”
Many Wonder Woman fans will be unsurprised by this news, considering her mother, Queen Hippolyta, is frequently associated with Philippus. However, until recently, no mention of the popular DC Comics character being queer has been made.
Gal Gadot’s Reaction to Wonder Woman’s Bisexuality
The world of DC comics has just gotten a whole lot more diverse. Gal Gadot addressed the latest news that Wonder Woman was intended to be bisexual in an interview with Variety.
(Many comic book readers were not startled, as they had always known about the asskicking warrior.) Gadot does not have any female romances in the 2017 film Wonder Woman, although she did acknowledge that the superhero can be bisexual.
She remarked of the character’s sexuality, “It’s not something we’ve explored.” “It was never brought up, but when you think of all the ladies in Themyscira and how long she was there, what [Greg Rucka, a longtime Wonder Woman comics writer] said makes sense.
She does not have any bisexual relationships in this film. But it isn’t the point. She is a woman who appreciates others for who they are. She has the potential to be bisexual. She is enamored with people because of their hearts.”
Rucka gave an in-depth explanation of the structure behind the character’s sexuality in his interview with Comicosity. Her love choices aren’t only based on the fact that she is surrounded by women; she has had relationships with both men and women throughout the series.
“It’s meant to be a dream come true. You should be able to live happily ever after. You’re expected to be able to have a meaningful, passionate, and sexual connection in a context where one may live happily, and part of what an individual needs for that happiness is to have a partner.
And women are the only ones who can help. An Amazon, on the other hand, does not look at another Amazon and declare, “You’re queer.” They don’t have any. There is no such thing as a concept “Rucka said.
“Are we now implying that Diana has had connections with other women? The answer is certainly yes, as Nicola and I approach it.” The public’s reaction to Gadot’s acceptance of her character’s sexuality has been overwhelmingly positive.
Fans believe Wonder Woman is gay or bisexual because of a Wonder Woman poster
You’ve come to the right place, mate, if you’re looking for conjecture that Wonder Woman is lesbian or bisexual in the forthcoming DC film based on little-to-no proof.
Before we go any further, here’s some backstory and critical context: Diana Prince is bisexual in DC’s Wonder Woman comic books. Greg Rucka, the creator of the comics, has confirmed this.
“[Wonder Woman] is queer, to be sure. However, I believe it is more complicated.” In 2016, he told Comicosity about it “Are we now implying that Diana has had relationships with other women? The answer is certainly yes, as Nicola and I approach it.”
All of this is to imply that Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Diana as a lesbian in the upcoming sequel Wonder Woman 1984 is only just and proper. Am I correct? In any case, this is old news. The latest development is that filmmaker Patty Jenkins has just published an image from the next film, which has sent LGBT Twitter into a frenzy.
Twittering, “You’ve probably heard that WB will not be attending Hall H this year. We’ll be sorely missing you there! And we’re waiting until December to launch our official #WW84 campaign in its entirety— But the truth is, we can scarcely wait…” accompanied by a picture from the film
Wonder Woman is also posed in front of a massive freaking rainbow (with some very obvious bisexual pride colours going on in the background – pink, purple and blue, FYI). AND it’ll be released in June 2020, which is Pride Month. Is there anything more blatantly gay than that?
Here’s the Tweet by Patty Jenkins
Gal Gadot also shared the image on Instagram, and understandably, many are wondering if DC will beat Marvel to the punch by having a main character that is openly homosexual.

And some even speculated on what Diana Prince would be up to in 1984…
Others took advantage of the occasion to mention Captain Marvel, whom we all hope will have a same-sex relationship in future Marvel films.
LGBTQ+ fans have been clamoring for Marvel to make Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, clearly queer ever since Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, tweeted a fan who uploaded some art shipping her and Tessa Thompson’s character Valkyrie (who is bisexual in the comics), did.
Give the people what they want, we say to Marvel and DC.
