Wonder Woman and Batman will have “sexual tension” in Justice League

After the highly enjoyable Wonder Woman, we’re excited to see Gal Gadot don her tiara again in Justice League, but Ben Affleck is teasing something from the movie that we’re less than enthused about.

Zack Snyder’s film will apparently explore feelings of a romantic nature between Diana and Bruce Wayne.

Affleck told Entertainment Weekly that Justice League allowed him to explore Bruce’s relationship with other characters, to “play the dynamics, the sexual tension with Wonder Woman, the regular old tension with Flash”.

Wonder Woman’s romance with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) was one of the biggest issues with her movie. Can’t the Justice League‘s only female member be allowed to stand on her own rather than being paired off with the nearest available alpha male?

Affleck added: “You can’t be around Jason Momoa and not have sexual tension.” Batman and Aquaman would be a much more daring romance, but we can’t see any major studio ever having the guts to put that on the big screen.

Wonder Woman and Batman’s threatened romance is, admittedly, not a new phenomenon. Inevitably, when the comics haven’t been trying to pair her up with Superman or Steve, Bats has been a tertiary option.

In one such incident, Wonder Woman used the Martian Manhunter’s ‘Transconsciousness Articulator’ to realise that they should just be friends. Hopefully, Warner Bros will come to the same conclusion without the use of alien virtual reality technology.

Justice League will be released on November 17.
