Joss Whedon Says Wonder Woman Is Better Suited For The Big Screen
Warner Brothers is currently trying to decide what they are going to do with one of their Big Three. And since Batman and Superman will be appearing in a movie together in the Summer of 2015, that only leaves Wonder Woman as the odd woman out with no concrete plans in place. There have been a couple attempts to get a TV show going for her again, with David E. Kelley even shooting a pilot staring Adrianne Palicki as The Amazon Princess, as well as The CW looking at doing a show based on Diana before she leaves Themyscira for “Mans World.”
However, Avengers director Joss Whedon, who wrote a movie script for Wonder Woman that was rejected by WB, doesn’t feel like that is the best route for Warner Brothers to take with one of their flagship characters. He concedes the fact that the show worked in the 70s with Lynda Carter, but this day in age she deserves to be shown on the big screen. “She’s a tough nut to crack. I know she’s famous as a television show, but I don’t think she lends herself to television. I think she only works on an epic scale. I saw a bit of the David E. Kelley [NBC pilot]. That was not a good marriage,” he explained.
The Wonder Woman show at The CW is still a possibility, but has been put on hold due to script issues. In the past both Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment heads have continued to say that Wonder Woman is a priority for them. A smart move would be to get a feature based on her to beat out Marvel for the first female centric superhero movie, but only time will tell if they can accomplish the feat.
