Although I haven’t confirmed this yet myself since my new Entertainment Weekly issue hasn’t yet arrived, the mobile version of the January 18 issue included a new quote from director Gavin Hood about Ender Wiggin.
Ender grows into a powerful (but deeply conflicted) leader whose every action is monitored. “He is a victim of adult manipulation,” says director Gavin Hood, “but also a victim of his own ego.”
Sounds like Gavin Hood has a really great grasp of the depth of character of Ender. Let’s hope he’s able to take his interpretations of the character and translate them accurately on screen!
