Until we find out the kid is Zeus, the king of the gods.
I'm not sure all of the gods even have to show up for this flick, ..since most of the action would revolve around Wondy defending Zola from Strife and the forces of Hera. I think, for a feature film, you've got to keep it simple -who the badguys are and why she's fighting them should be kept clear.

From the Golden Age of comics, the film short they don't want you to see... WONDER BOY LIVES!
The basic plot of protecting a young girl from powerful forces works for me. But I don't think I'd care to see her actual origin laid out. Referenced to would work for me. And all the gods were really remove it from the real world into Wrath of the Titans type a little too much. I can see why there's such a problem with bringing the character to film. There's too much extemes with the character. If she's works in our world she loses her mythical aspects but those are so big it completely negates it being in our world.
They don't have to explain her origins or they can just reference it throughout the film.Orgins movies really get me frustrated because they move the film so slowly... If they were gonna explain her origins, they should have it like this. A 8 year old Diana plays with the other amazons, they do amazing feats like run faster than a deer and pick up tree branches without any effort.They make fun of diana by calling her clay, she gets mad and frustrated. Fast forward to her teenage years, she's 16 years old. She likes to fight and wants to enter a contest on paradise island to see who is the best fighter.She loses her practice match against the other amazons. WW still has months for the contest so she trains really hard for it. When the time comes, WW dominates everybody while showcasing her amazing percision and dexterity. She becomes number 1 and earns the mantle of wonder woman. We get another time skip about 7 years. We continuing telling stories about WW. Her origins will at least take 50 minutes to explain.
I'm watching Drive right now and i remembered that its director, Nicolas Refn wanted to do a WW movie. Now i dont know if he can do action, but holy crap Drive is amazing. The cinematography, the music, the direction, the whole thing... it's so good! If Refn can do action i'd get him to do this. Have some DC guys guide him a little bit to make sure he gets WW, and it will be excellent.

First, you'd have to convince me there are any "DC guys" who get Diana -- but why start all that again? Case in point -- would you trust DiDio, Lee or Johns? They're the creative heads -- and Johns supposedly had his hands all over the Green Lantern movie. What do you think he would do with a Wonder Woman film? I'd say you can tell from Justice League -- it wouldn't be Azzarello riding herd on this, or as much as Refn would allow before he quit.
Executive meddling from Warners is a guarantee on any DC film project.

Some days a girl wants to ride ponies. Some days a girl wants to punch tanks. Today ... is a tank day.
That's a fair point. But after all there's bound to be some control anyway. For example they must have refused a million batman pitches like Aranovski's and in the end settled with Nolan's for Begins. What i mean is that there's always some control, so it would be nice if DC looks after this and keeps it straight, not allowing some director to indulge himself the way it's been going on with Batman. Keep it straight like Marvel has, especially since they're planning a DC movieverse.
As for GL, Johns did a lot of good work if i'm not mistaken. The movie originally didnt look anything like the GL mythos (the guardians were monsters, Sinestro looked like Ming, etc) and the story was way off the comics. Johns brought it back. The problem was the crappy CGI, the silly cloud villain, and the majority of the film taking place on earth. And of course the script was bad. In other words the backbone of the movie was Secret Origins which in itself is great, but the execution was horrible.
