As Warner Bros. and DC Comics continue to play catch-up in the comic book movie arena, one of the most confounding questions in the minds of fans is this: Why haven't they made a Wonder Woman film yet?
DC brought Batman and Superman to the screen, which makes sense since those are two of its biggest characters. Wonder Woman is third on the popularity chart, yet we've seen Green Lantern get his own film before everyone's beloved Amazon. How can this be? We don't have definitive answers, but Warner Bros. is at least aware of the issue.
Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara recently discussed the issue and his answer should give fans of Wonder Woman at least a glimmer of hope.
Speaking on the topic, Tsujihara acknowledged that they "need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV," while adding that they have big plans for other DC properties beyond Superman and Batman.
What's interesting here is that Warner Bros. still seems unsure if it wants to give the character her own film series or relegate her to television only (with possible supporting roles in films like Batman vs. Superman and Justice League). Given that the last attempt to launch a Wonder Woman series failed miserably, it feels like Warners is still struggling with how to transfer the character from the page to the screen. Our advice -- get the casting right and everything else should fall into place.
Personally, my preference is for Wonder Woman to get her own film franchise. I'm not the biggest fan of the character, but as the third banana at DC, she's certainly earned the chance to get a crack at her own big-screen series. TV could work, but it's bound to be a smaller and more intimate show -- and doesn't seem likely to really play up to the strengths of Wonder Woman. What do you guys think? Do you want to see Diana get her own feature film, or would you rather turn in for a series of weekly adventures? Let us know below.
