Wonder Woman Movie Gaining Traction?

wonderwoman golden lasso Wonder Woman Movie Gaining Traction?

IESB is reporting that the live-action Wonder Woman movie (which has started and stalled over the course of the last few years) might finally have found some legs.

According to the report, Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures (as in super-producer Joel Silver) are trying to get the project moving ahead, searching for writers with a good script pitch and a director who can bring Wonder Woman to the big screen in blockbuster fashion.

While that all sounds well and good, you’ll forgive me if I remain a bit skeptical. We’ve been promised a Wonder Woman movie so many times before, and so far, nothing’s come of those promises. Will this time be any different?

However, I have to wonder just how much influence the direct-to-DVD Wonder Woman animated feature DC Universe released this month might have had on pushing the Wonder Woman live-action movie forward. The reviews of the animated Wonder Woman were pretty positive; in fact, I’d go so far as to say that the animated feature surprised many viewers. Who knew that a modern day Wonder Woman could be such an entertaining character?

(If you haven’t seen the animated feature, you really need to check it out. It’s a great blueprint for how the live-action film should be done.)

Of course all this talk about a live-action Wonder Woman film moving forward is just rumor and speculation at this point. No word yet on who would write or direct it, or what creative direction the studio is looking to go in.

But still, it would be nice to see WW finally getting an even shot at that the box office. And if they do the whole Steve Trevor origin story, they’ve got to give the role to Nathan Fillion (his voice work as Trevor in the animated feature was awesome!).

We’ll keep an eye out and let you know more details about the film as they come to light. In the meantime, is Wonder Woman a comic book movie you would like to so on the fast track?

  1. Wonder Woman needs to be a “Warrior Goddess!” The actress has to score high on: Beauty, Acting Ability, and Warrior Believabality.

    Lucy Lawless:
    Beauty: 7 – Face is too masculine.
    Acting: 8 – Great as Xena, but not for big-screen.
    Warrior: 9 – Experienced, but not very believable.
    Score: 24 of 30

    Linda Carter:
    Beauty: 8 – Yes, she was WW for years, but this is a new generation.
    Acting: 9 – She pulled it off back in the day…
    Warrior: 7 – Sadly, age takes its toll on all of us.

    Charisma Carpenter:
    Beauty: 9 – Beautiful face and hot bod.
    Acting: 7 – Subtle nuances aren’t her strong suit.
    Warrior: 5 – Hard to picture, based on acting history.
    Score: 21 of 30

    Olivia Munn:
    Beauty: 9 – Can’t argue with her hotness
    Acting: 6 – Just fine for TV, but movies?!?
    Warrior: 3 – Just not happening.
    Score: 18 of 30

    Julia Voth:
    Beauty: 10 – Face would be perfect as Wonder Woman. Almond eyes, perfectly angled jaw and chin, optimum combo of strength and sensuality.
    Acting: ? – Unknown. I’ll have to rent ‘b**** Slap’.
    Warrior: ? – Unknown. Bonus points for already starring in a warrior-babe movie, but since I haven’t seen it, I’m judging by this pic from the movie: http://www.bitchslapmovie.com/Wallpapers/7/BSWallpaper_1_1600x1200.jpg
    Based on face alone, she’d be awesome. If she could train and build up a touch more muscle (think Agelina Jolie for Tomb Raider, Jennifer Garner for Elektra) and could pull off the acting, this could be a breakthrough role for her.

  2. Bridget Regan, of Legend of the Seeker. She can act, she is beautiful, and she has the physical prowess to be extremely believable in combat. She is just a little shorter than Lynda Carter. As pretty as some of the folks above are, none of them have shown the whole balance of what is needed for the role. Bridget Regan is a fresh face with real talent, both physical and acting prowess.

  3. Other actresses I casted to play The Amazing Amazon are Karen Cliche, Keira Knightley, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Penelope Cruz. Karen Cliche from the FLASH GORDON series can make an awesome casting role as WONDER WOMAN. Because Alex Ross illustrated the first Wonder Woman comic book adaptation.

  4. Also, the actress from the FLASH GORDON series Karen Cliche who played “Baylin” she can make an awesome amazon. she does looks like Alex Ross's WONDER WOMAN. There's another actress Alexandra Daddario as The Amazon Warrior AnnaBeth Chase from PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF can also play Both amazon warrior Anna Beth Chase and Young Princess Diana in the WONDER WOMAN Movie. She is still in the Percy Jackson & The Olympians sequels. She is an amazon warrior. If DC Comics ask her permission.

    And also Cate Blanchett from Lord of the Rings Trlogy and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can make a great character playing Queen Hippolyte as Wonder Woman's mother (Ruler of Paradise Island). Everyone wanted Lynda Carter to play Queen Hippolyte I think Lynca Carter can make a cameo role in this movie instead of playing Wonder Woman's mother.

  6. Alexandria Dadario the young lady who played Annabeth in the film Percy Jackson and the lightning thief is perfect for the role of Wonder Woman.

    • I totally agree Alexandra Daddario is the perfect choice for wonder woman plus wonder woman needs to be young like in her early-mid 20′s because this movie will be an origin story for the amazon princess and we need someone young and warrior like just look at alexandra she is warrior like her eye make her fierce and she will be training for the movie if she cast so physical and agility is no problem

  7. The is a graet disjutice to one of our most popular comic around, to have a morden WW would help out those whom have lost hope with what the world has to offer today, the new WW will give insperation to others just as the Marvel/DC comic to big screen that have been done to date has, we need to keep hope and inmaginnation alive.

  8. If I was executive producer on a big screen wonderwoman movie. This is how I would approach it.

    1. I would go with a redsign version of the Bikini out that was going to
    use in NBC’s failed attempt to do wonderwoman serie’s.
    2. I would use one of the hawawii’s island as a stand in for Paradise
    Island.

    3. For the version of character Steve Trevor I would make him a Air
    Force Intelligent officer. Played by Terrence Howard-Iron man or
    Bradly Cooper from A-team.
    4. It would be her orgin story.

    5. That I would approach it the same way christoper Nolan and Richard
    donner do there superman and batman. As it having it’s own sense of reality to. and make it about character’s and only using CGI would it was necessary and help tell the story. And use real location’s to give it a sense of realism.

    5. first scence we would see of Diana prince would be when steve trevor crash land’s on Paradise island.

    6. We would daina prince competing in the touranmount and winning it. then seeing her be giving the bullet proof bracelet’s, lasso fo truth, and the wonderwoman outfit.

    7. And last hour and half of the movie would take place in washington D.C. with using real place’s in city itself.

    8. I would end the movie with steve trevor being saved by Wonderwoman and becoming his scetary.

    I think morena Baccarin from FireFly, serentiy, V would make good wonderwoman.
