Given Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's lukewarm (at best) reception, DC and Warner Bros. have a lot riding on the next two DC cinematic universe films. One of those is this year's Suicide Squad, while the other is Wonder Woman, which won't land in theaters until 2017.

The Amazon warrior's solo film needs to knock it out of the park. After all, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was one of the few positive aspects of Zack Snyder's otherwise grim and joy-free Batman v Superman. It's with that in mind that special interest has been given to exactly who is responsible for penning the story and script for the upcoming film. Long shrouded in mystery, those details have now been revealed ahead of San Diego Comic-Con.

Wonder Woman's script was co-written by DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns and Allan Heinberg, based off a story by Snyder and Heinberg. Below is the film's official description.

"Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers ... and her true destiny."

Knowing that Johns was involved in writing the film will likely come as a relief to some worried fans, though those same fans may be equally troubled to know that the film's story was at least partially developed by Snyder. Though the director proved to do Wonder Woman justice in the brief few moments she appeared in Batman v Superman, the movie's overall negative reception casts anything Snyder touches in a questionable light.

Just how much of an influence Synder, or Johns, for that matter, actually had on the film remains to be seen, but so far, the film's description and various photos seem to indicate Wonder Woman will be a faithful version of the character's classic origin story. That's definitely good news for fans, as Johns knows Wonder Woman's roots like the back of his hand. Fingers crossed that translates into a Wonder Woman film fans have always wanted.
