She is Greek, but she seems to always be portrayed with an American accent.
Does Wonder Woman have an accent?
well if it makes you feel better generally every single American created science fiction character either has some sort of American accent, or a brtish accent
@cattlebattle said:@Captain13: She doesn't come from Greece though, she comes from Themyscara
That doesn't explain the depiction of her having an American accent though...
It actually makes sense that she has an American accent, considering what her costume looks like. If her outfit is about wearing the colors of her host nation, what's to say that she wouldn't speak as they speak as well? Not sure if the costume meaning has been reconned but there is an explanation if you need one.
Well it's not like she has spent most of her life in the US of A, she was raised in Themsicyra and I would think she should have an accent to vary up the voices of the Justice League. That being said I do think Diana has had some great voice actors in both Justice League and Young Justice, so I really don't especially mind the American accent.
@Captain13 & htb106 & Shutdown & Others:
What you guys fail to realize is that Wonder Woman has studied & MASTERED ALL languages while growing up on PARADISE ISLAND (not "Themyscira"). Thus...she didn't need to grow up in the USA to put on any accent she wants!!
But her default accent & speech pattern is very fluid and is only SLIGHT. And it sounds like a MIX of things. Becuz remember...she knows EVERY language.
Here is both an excerpt from my WW dossier, and a link to my Review of past WW productions where I critique the voice:
Voice----------------------Ranges from Mezzo-Soprano, to Alto/Contralto ...a very nurturing, sultry, pleasing tone ...hers is full of loving emotion; the opposite of monotone, nasty, and scary-like.
Speech patterns-------The key word here is 'fluid' ...Slight unidentifiable accent (which decreases with time in MW), sounds like an amalgam of Middle Eastern, Greek, Asian & Polynesian dialects ...Varied tempo, from quick to slow ...Fluid pronunciations, much like native Hawaiian speakers ...Uses proper English (her first years in MW), but creatively & expressively, then uses some slang (later on).
In the New 52 She can learn new languages on the fly. Maybe that includes learning the language including the accent from the first place she learned the language. Maybe she can change her accents depending on where she is and if she wants the accents to change.
She was created by an American, for an American comic company, and even dawns a costume that draws from the American flag..
I think you get the picture.... I'm not so sure unless someone could show me current WW speaking with an accent, cause as far as I'm concerned, she speaks with an American accent English wise. Other languages, I'm not so sure.
