In Batman vs Superman we are shown photos of Wonder Women in a photo that was taken in 1918:

"Belgium November 1918"

And she still looks the exact same as she did nearly 100 years ago.

So how old is Wonder Women?

I would prefer answers related to the movie Batman Vs Superman in or out of universe.

    I do think this question should be postponed until her solo film premieres. – Gallifreyan Mar 26 '17 at 13:59

According to the March 2016 issue of Empire Magazine Wonder Woman is over 5000 years old. According to actress Gal Gadot (who portrays Wonder Woman) this un-agingness forms a key part of her back story and explains her absence for the past hundred years, that 'man's inhumanity to man' and more specifically the sight of mechanised warfare have emotionally overwhelmed her, to the point that she simply withdrew from the superhero biz for a few generations.

Using Greek mythology as the backbone to her backstory, she was born Princess Diana of Themyscira, an Amazonian warrior with superhuman strength and athleticism, and a golden lasso. In some comic-book strands she is the daughter of Zeus.How all this will be recalibrated for the realitydetermined context set up in Man Of Steel remains elusive, though Gadot confirms that when it comes to inborn talent, her metahuman heals quickly, jumps to heights where she is almost flying and can really pack a punch.

She is also over 5,000 years old. “Because she’s seen it all,” says Gadot, “she has seen what humans can do, so it was very hard for her to come back and fight.”

    @KyloRen - I'm still trying to track down a direct quote. I hate it when magazine interviewers do this. Paraphrase something that they could just as easily have transcribed. – Valorum Mar 26 '17 at 15:47
  • I am satisfied with the answer, but anything extra will be appreciated. – KyloRen Mar 26 '17 at 15:50
  • @KyloRen there is better elaborated answer on the sister site movies.stackexchange.com/a/74365/1190 but answer about her age will be disappointing – Steve Harrington Jun 6 '17 at 15:04
