Wonder Woman is an adaptation of the popular comic book character in the DC Universe, and is soon to be a major motion picture. The Wonder Woman Movie is still a ways off, so there are few details at present. The film has gone through more writers and directors than Gigli. In some ways, the character should be easy to make into a film, but with how iconic she’s become, it may prove difficult for a movie studio to appropriately adapt the comic for the screen.
Wonder Woman Trailer
Nope, but I’m tempted to throw in a Linda Carter moment in here just to throw you off. Ah heck, I just can’t help myself now. I’m sure the Wonder Woman 2015 Movie will be better than this, or can it be? How can you top this moment in time?
A New Wonder Woman Movie?
Joss Whedon was attached a few years ago to write and direct the film, but he left in 2007 due to creative differences with the studio. As of now, it looks like Matthew Jennison has been charged with writing the screenplay, although who knows if his script will make it to the screen. Various actresses have been rumored for the role, such as Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock, and Beyonce. It cannot be Beyonce. I will freak out. I have nothing against her, and I’m not some racist ass, but she is not right for the role. This shouldn’t be about making a politcal statement. It’s a comic book film. Just make it good.
Rumor has it, they are hoping for a 2015 release with Megan Fox in the lead to get the role of Wonder Woman. Now, it was just reported that Actress Jaimie Alexander, best known for her role as the warrior goddess Sif in Marvel’s Thor movies is in talks to play Wonder Woman in 2015. Alexander may be the perfect choice to be honest, she’s hot… she can act…she’s hot…
However, this isn’t really the most thought out choice for Wonder Woman. We can just imagine the studio execs sitting around a huge table, talking to Jaimie…
“Oh, you played a dark-haired woman who fights in that superhero movie, then you can play one here too.”
That’s the same thinking that lead to Bryan Singer directing a Superman movie simply because he had success with the X-Men. How’d that work out for you DC/Warner? Who do you want to see playing Wonder Woman?
Wonder Woman will be hitting the theaters 2015.
Who’s In It?
No Confirmed Casting yet although Jaimie Alexander is in talks to be Wonder Woman.
There are various back-stories for Wonder Woman, but the one I’m most familiar with named her mother Hippolyta, who was killed by Hercules in an ancient myth, then he stole her belt.
What’s Good About It?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you get a good director with a good script, most comic book characters can be adapted for the big screen. Oh, if Wonder Woman looks like this, I’m all for it.
What’s Bad About It?
I see Wonder Woman being especially hard for Hollywood to make, as they’ll see her as a model for feminism or some such nonsense, when she isn’t. The best possible storyline for the film will actually serve to undercut the principles of militant feminists. For example, Wonder Woman, the Ambassador of the Amazons who has been told her entire life that men are bad, visits with the rest of the world and learns that men aren’t so bad, she falls in love (with a dude no less) and fights a villain who is most likely female. So a chick will be the bad guy, and she’ll learn to love a man. Not exactly the man-hating storyline that many are looking for.
Our Clever Prediction
I’m thinking this one may be even further away than 2015. I think the studio will wait for the sequel to The Dark Knight and probably even the next Superman film before giving this the green light. DC hasn’t had the same success as Marvel, so they’ll more than likely be more careful before throwing $100 million into this project.
Wonder Woman is going to be something terrible, you can count on it.
