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.

"... 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

Joss Whedon Reveals Response of Warner Bros. to His Wonder Woman Script

Long before Joss Whedon gave Marvel the biggest grossing superhero film of all time, he was hired to deliver another superhero movie based on Wonder Woman.

Whedon has talked a few times about the failed project. And he did again last night with Deadline.

DEADLINE: You’ve had a history with DC. Do you think anyone will ever pull offWonder Woman?
WHEDON: It’s not easy. It’s not a simple trick. The Marvel properties with the exception of Batman who has often been described as the Marvel character in the DC universe are much easier to translate to a modern audience. Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern are so far above us and their powers are amorphous and that makes it 10 times harder. Even when you’re doing a fight, it’s harder to write a fight for Thor than it is for Captain America because he’s that much stronger. I loved what I was doing on Wonder Woman. Clearly I was an excited party of one. I wrote the movie, I felt good about the characters, the structure needed work, I did another outline, they read it and were done. There wasn’t even a phone call.

Well, we know how Warner Bros. has made such smart decisions about their superhero IP over the years.

UK’s the Guardian takes a look today at the current state of Warner Bros. pulling a Marvel and isn’t that optimistic. Or offering a single idea that hasn’t been discussed before, to be honest. But they spice it up with dumb comments like this: 

The problem is that Warner doesn’t really seem to have thought this through (yet). Justice League is supposedly due in just two years’ time, and we still don’t have the standalone Wonder Woman movie required to bring that rather hokey old character into the burgeoning “darker” Nolanesque take on the DC universe.

And this in reference to that Wonder Woman fan film that made the rounds last week:

Perhaps that’s why we’re starting to see the emergence of fan films offering up a moody take on the other Princess Diana … (though don’t ask me where the Nazis come from).

Yes, fan films with Wonder Woman mean there will be darker take on the character. Right. Totally. Oh and they apparently they know nothing about the history of Wonder Woman or lack access to Wikipedia.

As I’ve said before, I have put seeing Wonder Woman on the big screen as my new bucket list item since the Red Sox finally won the World Series after 86 years. Let’s see, Wonder Woman was created in 1941 and has yet to have a movie. If I use the Red Sox as a bench mark I only have 14 more years until Wonder Woman hits the big screen! 

See I told you I would try and be positive today!

    It’s hard to imagine any A-list directors who would do a better job with a Wonder Woman movie. But since Whedon is not...
