DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..." -Nerdbastards.com

CW Developing Wonder Woman TV Show “Amazon”

Warner Bros. is going to take another stab at a Wonder Woman television show according to Vulture. The network is developing a script thatwill focus on an early Wonder Woman before she becomes a full fledged hero. Yes, that does sound like Smallville. 

Leading the creative charge is Allan Heinberg who was once head writer on Wonder Woman and did a soft reboot on the character spinning out of Infinite Crisis. That brought back many of the pre-Crisis and TV show facets of the character such as the Diana Prince secret identity. 

In 2011 Warner Bros. attempted a TV show with a pilot script written by David E. Kelley. That did not make the NBC fall schedule. That attempt at Wonder Woman drew criticism for turning the character into a Ally McWonder like character. Plus it sucked (believe me).

I was not a fan of Heinberg’s run on Wonder Woman but do like his work at Marvel on Young Avengers where he wrote younger heroes. At least he is familiar with the character something Kelley clearly was not.

Will this mean no Wonder Woman movie? I doubt it. That script is under development and I’m sure Wonder Woman will at minimum be part of the Justice League movie. So we may get two projects in two mediums with the character. That is a good thing.
