There is a lot of talk about the possible Wonder Woman TV show on the CW. And while it's exciting and popping... I rather have a film.
We need a WW movie! Hands down! She is one of the big DC 3! Superman has had 6 films and Batman has had 8 films. Diana has had none, I'm not counting the Cathy Lee Crosby version, because that was a TV pilot.
WB should do everything in their power to make WW happen. Diana has a rich history and plenty of material to make a fascinating movie. Even if they struggled with some of her story lines, they could still draw from the 70 years of stuff! I mean, look at the possibilities:
- Her issues with her mother
- Coming to the new world
- Rogue amazons
- Steve Trevor or Trevor
- Aresia - from the JL cartoon
- The tournament
I really don't want a Smallville-lite series. And I don't want some starlet in the role as Diana. In fact, let's not do the series; just do the movie, just do the movie. Find a great director, writer and actress and make this happen! Please WB, look at the draw of The Avengers and the Man of Steel, Wonder Woman can create the same kind of draw and excitement!
Just give the movie a chance! Hell, give Wonder Woman a frakking chance!
