Warner Bros. CEO Reiterates They Have Plans For WONDER WOMAN
DC has been announcing a number of new TV projects the past few weeks. We know that Flash may run off and do his own show if things go well in season 2 of Arrow, a young Jim Gordon series has been ordered by Fox, and it was announced last week that a Constantine project for NBC was in the early stages of development with Man of Steel scribe David Goyer on hand as a producer. Today at an entertainment law conference, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirms that there are plans in place for other DC characters to take over television and they really want to get Wonder Woman on screen.
The Hollywood Reporter had a rundown of Tsujihara‘s comments. After touching on J.K. Rowling‘s new movie deal to make some Harry Potter universe spinoff movies, he talked a little bit about WB’s plans for DC. Tsujihara said that they have “huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV.” So besides the ones already mentioned, it sounds like we can expect several more announcements before long. One thing WB is hoping to announce soon is a Wonder Woman project. The company’s top man said “we need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”
Many fans have been waiting to hear something about Wonder Woman. There have been a lot of negative comments online about WB not having anything on the books for the Amazonian warrior. If Marvel can put a talking tree and a gun-totting raccoon on screen, as some people have said, why can’t WB get a Wonder Woman film to work? WB and some screen writers keep insisting that the character is a hard one to nail down and get correct. It seems like they may finally have a few ideas how to do it, though it sounds like they’re not sure whether it will be a movie or TV show. We’ve heard similar comments before, but this makes it seem like things are more solidified than in the past. Does this put a damper on those Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman rumors we were hearing? What do you think about WB‘s continued instance that they’re eying a Wonder Woman project?
