Paradise Lost Series With Wonder Woman Announced

Paradise Lost Brings Wonder Woman Roots Back To DC Slate

James Gunn and Peter Safran have revealed that Paradise Lost will be released in the first part of the new DC slate of content, which is being referred to as, Chapter 1 Gods and Monsters.

Deadline has posted the initial plans from DC Studios’ co-CEOs, and, at the same time, Gunn himself posted a 6-minute video on his Twitter account in which he revealed the line-up for his DC Universe.

The new live-action series will be released on HBO Max, and it’s set in the birthplace of Wonder Woman, Paradise Island.

The very place where Diana grew up is nothing but pure natural beauty. In the two Wonder Woman films, audiences became witness to the strong, unified front the Amazons have for their society.

They adhere to traditions and customs untainted by modern frivolities. Paradise Lost will bring the spotlight to the society of the Amazons.

Gunn and Safran likened the new live-action series to HBO’s groundbreaking Game of Thrones. Safran said:

It’s going to be a Games of Thrones-ish story about Themyscira, the home of the Amazons and the birthplace of Wonder Woman. This drama is really about the political intrigue behind the society of all women. How did that come about?

Gunn added to the feel of the upcoming series, saying:

What’s the beautiful truths and the ugly truths behind all of that and what’s the scheming like between all the power players in that society?
