After the recent debacle that was David E. Kelly’s leaked Wonder Woman pilot (to call it toxic would be polite), it looks like the bigwigs at Warner Bros. are eager to give Princess Diana another shot.
While speaking at the USC Gould School of Law, WB Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara briefly touched upon his belief that the company should make more television shows and films based on DC Comics’ properties. Specifically, the CEO went on to say “We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”
Wonder Woman is not only part of DC Comics’ “Trinity” (the other two members being Superman and Batman), but is the most recognizable heroine in all of comics. Brian Azzarelo’s current run remains one of the brighter and better selling spots of the “New 52.” Wonder Woman has more heat behind her than she has had in years, so it only makes sense that Warner Bros. would try to capitalize on the increased interest. Still, it is wise to remain skeptical. The mixed fan reactions to the CW’s Arrow and Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel show that while Warner Bros. is willing, its ability to bring DC’s superheroes to both the big and small screens successfully is spotty at best.
Would Wonder Woman make a good cinematic film? Should she stick to TV or even just comic books? Sound off below!
