Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Transparent creator has discussed her hopes for the fantasy film, describing Red Sonja as “a very different kind of superhero” and comparing her take to The Dark Knight and Deadpool.
“I can really have so much fun with Red Sonja,” said Soloway. “I see her a little bit more like the first kind of bad girl superhero. Sort of like the Batman of The Dark Knight or Deadpool, you know? The world is changing so much right now for superheroes, that I just really look forward to not only going to the edge of what I’ve ever written and directed before, but to the edge of the genre as well.
