Wonder Woman (2015)

Wonder Woman (2015)

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.

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?

Jaimie Alexander the new Wonder Woman?

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?

Release Date

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.

Interesting Fact

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.

Megan Fox as Wonder Woman

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.

    It’s nice to read everyone opinions on who should play the role of the iconic Princess, but here is my “two cents” on potential candidates.

    Wonder Woman is from Paradise Island, right? That being said, one would assume that she NOT of WHITE origin, but rather Caribbean or something exotic wouldn’t you think? I completely agree that Beyoncé is NOT the person for the role, and I’m black, but she just does not embody the characteristics of the Amazonian Princess.

    If I were to choose or potential women for the role, I would go with one of two women that are actual actors in their own right, and have the Island “exotic” look.

    Keep in mind the shoes that have to be filled, the one and only Lynda Carter. Miss World 1972, she’s European and Spanish/Mexican decent and 5’10.

    My first pick would be Miss World 1994 Aishwarya Rai & Miss India Runner-Up 1994 – She is just BEAUTIFUL, and has the exotic, Amazonian look that would be ideal for the part. Granted she’s not from a Caribbean Island, but she does embody the look. Yes, she is two and half inches shorter than Lynda Carter, but like Lynda Carter, she holds the same title and look how the that worked out!

    Second, I would go with Miss Universes 1993 Dayanara Torres. She might be a little height challenged at just 5’8, but again, she is exotic, and from the Island of Puerto Rico. Again, like Lynda Carter, she is pageant winner, and she is 100% Island woman.

    Both woman are great actresses in their own right, and shouldn’t be overlooked simply because they are NOT American actress.

    Your thoughts on my picks…

      Marvel Comic Fan – I’m not sure how you’ve jumped to the conclusion that Wonder Woman should be of Caribbean origin, but you’re dead wrong. She is an Amazon from Paradise Island. Amazons are of Greek origin and live on Themyscira (also called Paradise Island).

      All we know about its location is that it took many days and nights to find it once they set sail from Greece. So it could be anywhere… and it is mystically protected.

      Location aside… the Amazons are from Greece… not the Caribbean.

    I think that Kate Bekinsale would be a perfect candidate for the role of Wonder Woman she’s a very goo actress she’s shows that se can handle her own in all her movies like total recall an underworld but she doesn’t have the height :/ other than that I think she is perfect WB should really consider her and if they do make one please don’t mess this up like the last batman make sre her story line is right before it’s produced and her rival is always cheetah and her love is auppose to become batman not some random guy
