Wonder Woman headed to TV with David E. Kelley

“I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ And I also think that Christina Hendricks would be the perfect Wonder Woman, but Warner Bros haven’t called yet. But I’m getting closer with ‘Logan’s Run.’ I think someone said to me in a meeting that if I get ‘Logan’s Run’ right, then I’ll get ‘Wonder Woman.’”

it's not just boobs.
it's CHRISTINA HENDRICKS' boobs.
Jennifer Vineyard wrote:Nicolas is a big fan of yours as well. He really wants you for Wonder Woman. Would you do it?
Sure! I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you're exposed. [Giggles.] And Nicolas said, when we were on set, "I want you to be Wonder Woman." And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.
Funny enough, when Joss Whedon was going to direct Wonder Woman, you were one of the people he was considering ... so you've got two directors who think you're right for the role.
I'd like to think that Joss would have cast me! I also loved working with Joss [on Firefly]. I'm excited to see what he does with The Avengers. Hopefully the stars would align [for Wonder Woman]. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn't it? I'd get to kick ass.
The original Wonder Woman comics were all about sexual metaphors, because William Moulton Marston, the guy who created her, was trying to make Wonder Woman a combo of his wife and his lover, and the lasso representing their BDSM and whatnot.
Ah! Right. That makes sense now.
Would you want your Wonder Woman to be that kind of dark, sexually liberated character? Bring back the bondage?
Well, I would certainly do what Nicolas wanted to do, and I can only guess what his version would be, but as I grew up with and am now married to a comic book fan, I think it's important to be true to the original comic books, because I know that the fans love every detail and it's very important to them. So I think it would be cool to do that. I look forward to learning more about it, actually. I should probably start reading them, so that if someone were to ask me [to be in the movie], I would be fully prepared. [Grins.]
Gabe Toro wrote:Once again Refn said he was “born” to make “Wonder Woman.”
Even though Warner Bros. hasn’t been able to put together a “Wonder Woman” movie (aside from commissioning and then dropping a script penned by Joss Whedon), Refn has lobbied hard for the job, despite not even reading the comics. “I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman,’ ” Refn declares enthusiastically. “I would be the best at making ‘Wonder Woman.’ I was born to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ To do a movie about a universe where women are more powerful then men—this appeals to me very much.” When asked about the rumors about Christina Hendricks being his number one choice, Refn chooses his words a bit more carefully, paused and then said, “I don’t know if I want her per se, but I think she’s the perfect type.”
Jonathan Handel wrote:Also on the subject of franchises, Tsujihara said that the lack of superhero movies other than the Superman and Batman franchises had been a “missed opportunity,” but added that the studio had “huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV.” Perhaps one hint in that direction: “We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”

Gadot, an Israeli-born actress who was seen in Fast and Furious 6, joins Henry Cavill, who is reprising his role as Superman and Ben Affleck, who is playing Batman.
TheButcher wrote:Gal Gadot Reveals The Length, Cost of Her Wonder Woman Role
The future Wonder Woman talked about her fee for the follow-up to "Man of Steel," as well as how many movies she's signed on for, on Israeli talk show.
Given the tradition for secrecy around such matters, it's refreshing to see Gadot dish the details --
Andrew Dyce wrote:The actress seemed pleased to hear that anyone was getting the chance to don the tiara and lasso on film, but with the suit revealed, Access Hollywood asked for her initial reaction to Diana’s new duds:“Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say… I don’t know. I haven’t seen it yet, so I really can’t comment. Maybe there’s a lot more color in it than what we saw in the picture.”
Eager to point out the more important issue, Carter went on to explain that Gadot and her colleagues have bigger challenges than what message is sent by their character’s costume:“It’s almost impossible to play a superhero anyway. You can’t. You just have to play a character that happens to do these amazing things. That’s the only way you can do it. And the costumes all take care of themselves.”
“I’ll have to wait and see. I hate to comment on something that I haven’t seen and I’m very supportive of Gal Gadot. I’m very supportive of them doing Wonder Woman, putting her in any capacity. I think she needs to be out there. … It’s high time somebody took a chance and did it and so I’m really happy about that.”
