For fans wanting to see a live-action version of Wonder Woman, the prospects have almost become a punchline these days. But DC’s lady warrior apparently has one big proponent who might have the pull to finally make it happen.
From aborted TV series, to Joss Whedon’s failed attempt at a movie before signing his Marvel deal, Wonder Woman has been close to becoming real a few times. But no luck yet on pulling it all together.
Well, it turns out Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara knows the company has let the superhero genre at large become a “missed opportunity” for the company’s deal with DC — but he wants to remedy that, and Wonder Woman seems to be at the top of the list.
His comment to The Hollywood Reporter:
“We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”
Simple and to the point — and it definitely has us intrigued. Aside from Batman and Superman, the company has pretty much bombed when it comes to caped heroes (see: Green Lantern), but Marvel has proven a deep roster can work if it's executed correctly.
Hopefully Tsujihara has some more irons in the fire, because we’d love to finally see this one happen. What do you think? Should Wonder Woman come to TV, or the big screen?
