Here's the Teaser Poster for the 'Wonder Woman' Movie Joss Whedon Never Got to Make

Jan 21, 2015

These days Joss Whedon is known as the guy who delivered a game changer for the superhero genre in Marvel's The Avengers, and has since gone on to help spearhead the studio's big cinematic universe, in addition to directing the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron, due May 1. But before he got the gig with Marvel, Whedon was wooed by DC to direct a Wonder Woman movie... except it never happened. The movie was eventually scrapped due to creative differences, and the rest is history.

Now, as part of eBay auction to benefit artist Clydene Lee, the 2005 Comic-Con teaser poster for Whedon's canceled Wonder Woman movie has been revealed. Check it out below (via Bleeding Cool):


Artist Adam Hughes' original sketch (seen below) is also part of the auction...


Here's how Whedon described his version of Wonder Woman in an interview with Rookie Magazine...

“[Wonder Woman] was a little bit like Angelina Jolie [Laughs]. She sort of traveled the world. She was very powerful and very naïve about people, and the fact that she was a goddess was how I eventually found my in to her humanity and vulnerability, because she would look at us and the way we kill each other and the way we let people starve and the way the world is run and she’d just be like, ‘None of this makes sense to me. I can’t cope with it, I can’t understand, people are insane.’ And ultimately her romance with [classic Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor] was about him getting her to see what it’s like not to be a goddess, what it’s like when you are weak, when you do have all these forces controlling you and there’s nothing you can do about it. That was the sort of central concept of the thing. Him teaching her humanity and her saying, OK, great, but we can still do better.”

Of course Wonder Woman is now closer than she's ever been to appearing on the big screen, with Gal Gadot portraying her (pictured above) in a new set of DC movies that begin with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, due on March 25, 2016.

It's still fun to imagine what Whedon's movie would've looked like, and if his ideas would've helped fuel DC's own superhero universe long before Marvel arrived on the scene.
