There are a whole host of Batman vs Superman rumors running around at the moment, especially with the recent leaked photos of the heavily armored Batmobile suggesting that this movie could take another page out of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

But with all the rumors, we haven't heard much about Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, apart from the tired and unlikely story that she, like Superman, will be a Krypton.

Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman: Themyscira or Krypton?

According to the rumor, a female ancestor of Superman's explored the earth hundreds of years before the [Man of Steel](movie:15593) and gave began an ancient race of women, who were known to the ancient Greeks as the Amazons.

Wonder Woman is an Amazon, but could she also be a Krypton?

This is an origin story that has been given to Diana Prince before, but has not generally proved popular, as it essentially turns Wonder Woman into an knock-off Superman, or Supergirl.

It would also prove difficult for [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870), as the movie is expected to introduce not only Batman and Wonder Woman, but other members of the Justice League such as Aquaman, and potentially even Green Lantern and The Flash.

If we are supposed to only accept Wonder Woman's superpowers on the basis that she is a distant relative of Superman, does that mean [Aquaman](movie:264237) & co will also have be Krytonians?

Diana Prince Undercover at LexCorp?

The other, more plausible rumor for Wonder Woman's involvement in Batman vs Superman, is that she is working undercover at Lex Luthor's organization LexCorp, potentially looking for some artifact Lex Luthor has got hold of, wanting to return it to her homeland of Themyscira.

Filming of scenes set in Themyscira have already taken place in Morocco, according to reports, and the homeland of Gal Gadot's character may have some part to play in the creation of the villain that unites the Justice League.

But what do you think? Should Wonder Woman be from Krypton? How to you imagine the origins of Diana Prince? Write in with your own theories below the line!
