It just makes sense that they would be Greek, Themyscira was established during ancient Greek times, so I don't see why they would have American accents, they wouldn't even interact with Americans, until Steve Trevor crashes on the island. For a film, it wouldn't make sense for her to speak Greek, long scenes of subtitles would get annoying. Have her speak english obviously, but with a slight greek accent. But I wouldn't mind an American accent, that's how she's portrayed in animation. A British accent would make more sense than an American one though. Themyscira is supposed to be ancient, and the English accent is a lot older than the American one. Plus a Wonder Woman film would be pretty fantasy, and every American knows...English accent=fantasy.

I think Wonder Woman's costume was originally supposed to represent America, but in modern incarnations, her costume was armor from Themyscira. And I see Wonder Woman as a worldly character, she shouldn't just be limited to America, or have to represent it.
