Anyway, 10 pages into I dig it. It's Indiana Jones meets Clash of the Titans.

Cool. I'd go see it in film form.

Supposedly, Wonder Woman has been cast. Sorry if this is old news.

I'm not familiar with her work, so I don't know if she's right for the part. She looks ok.

In this season of testosterone-fueled superhero movies ("The Dark Knight," "Ironman," and "Hancock") and strong female leads (in "Sex and the City" and "Mamma Mia!"), you'd think Hollywood would do the math and put out a superhero flick starring a woman. A Wonder Woman.

You evidently agree, since searches have spiked in the last week for "wonder woman" and "wonder woman movie." Additionally, interest in "wonder woman movie 2009" spiked 9,600% in the month of June and the very specific "who will be cast as wonder woman" surged an astonishing 129,600%.

Lynda Carter, who brought the comic book character to life in the 1970s TV show, recently celebrated her 57th birthday, sparking sentimental searches for "lynda carter wonder woman," "how old was lynda carter on wonder woman," and "lynda carter as wonder woman images."

It's a reminder that it's time for a new star to step into those red, leather boots and indestructible bracelets. Not to mention the golden tiara that doubled as a deadly weapon. But with nothing on the horizon for live action, fans of the Amazon Princess will have to make do with cartoons. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The Comic-Con teased a new straight-to-DVD animated version featuring the voice of Keri Russell. DC creator Bruce Timm politely called Wonder Woman "… in the very top tier of DC characters that we haven't over-explored yet in animation…"

Or anywhere else of late, we might add. The live-action movie has yet to cast the leading role and is currently in "development hell." Plus "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" creator Joss Whedon reportedly quit the project citing "creative differences," according to IMDb.

But if the live-action movie's casting directors looked to search for inspiration, they'd be considering "Jessica Biel," "Teresa Palmer," "Rachel Bilson" and "Megan Fox." Each actress has the Search following to bring in big bucks at the box office.
Hey, all we ask is that they consider someone. How hard can this be? Apparently, harder than it looks. We hope this female superhero hasn't hit a super glass ceiling.

The latest rumor from MTV:
But what’s up with Wonder Woman?

“We’re waiting for the script to come in,” says producer Leonard Goldberg (”Charlie’s Angels”), who’s working on the film alongside Joel Silver.

And Hera help them, indeed: Goldberg has been trying to get a “Wonder Woman” film to take flight since the ’70s when he and then-business partner Aaron Spelling tried to lasso in Raquel Welch for the lead.

More recently, writer-director Joss Whedon (”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), who never delivered a finished script, quit the project after Silver purchased a rival, WWII-centered script drafted by unknowns Matthew Jennison and Matt Strickland. (Whedon ultimately cited a difference in vision as the sticking point — but before he departed, he spoke with MTV about his vision for the project.)

“We’ve tried that route. We’ve had a writer-director work on it,” said Goldberg, who declined to comment specifically on the Whedon dustup. “But I’m old school. When we have a script to present to directors, we’ll sit down with them and see who has a take that blows us away.”

One rumored possibility: the Wachowski brothers (”The Matrix,” “Speed Racer”). “At one time, Joel [Silver] said they might have an idea. But they got diverted to another project [and] never followed through,” he said, before adding, “There may come a time when they will be focused on ‘Wonder Woman’ and may come up with whatever their take on it was. They’re certainly very talented guys. Their vision for movies — whether they’re successful or not — is always singular.”

For the time-being, Goldberg won’t go into details about the notes he and Silver gave to the Jennison/Strickland brain trust for “Wonder Woman’s” second draft — but he will discuss his broad expectations. “I can only speak for myself.… I would like it to be more current,” said Goldberg. “I hope that we don’t finally wind up doing the same story again: Steve Trevor flying, and his plane crashes onto the island [of Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s matriarchal homeland]. He’s supposed to be executed, and she saves his life. Perhaps we’ll do that in a very abbreviated fashion up front, and then come up with a story that no one has seen yet.”

And don’t expect this fetching heroine to be overtly sexed up, either: “Originally, a friend of mine sent me the initial copy of Ms. Magazine. On the cover was Wonder Woman, which got me to thinking about what an iconic figure she was for women,” he recalled. “So I don’t see any reason to do it. That separates her from Catwoman.”

Goldberg claims he and Silver haven’t started discussing the lucky lass who’ll play the super-powered Amazon royal, but notes, “I would go with a right unknown. People are not, in my opinion, going to come [to the theater] for the actress. They’re going to come for Wonder Woman.”

I'm not sure why he's so opposed to the idea of the whole backstory of Steve Trevor somehow winding up in Themyscirialassadla and getting rescued by Wonder Woman... he makes it sound like it's familiar territory, but I don't know what that's supposed to mean in this context... certainly not this specific story, since I don't think it's been portrayed anywhere outside of the comics.

I actually think Beyonce would be better suited to Barbarella. She could do the whole hot clueless thing in a farcey movie easier than actually being a compelling hero in something serious-ish. Unless McG's Wonder Woman is intended to be a spoof like this Green Hornet movie is shaping up to be.

Well, Fillion is being seen by more than 10 million people a week on TV currently. Campbell wishes that many people saw his last film or watched his TV show. And I say that as a huge Campbell fan! And I don't even watch Castle!

Castle? That's like one of these non-cop, but can solve mysteries rip-off shows, like Lie To Me or The Mentalist, or Shark or House. That show will not have the popular culture relevance that the Evil Dead movies have had for the last 28 years and beyond. I can concede that he's the Bill Bixby of our generation.

My point was that more people are likely to know (and like) Fillion now than Bruce Campbell, who only has a cult following at best. Fillion has the cult and popular appeal currently. I'm not saying he's the new Tom Selleck or anything, but I'm sure his Q-rating is on the rise.

Re: Wonder Woman

PostPosted: Sun Mar 29, 2009 1:24 pm
by Retardo_Montalban
I guess that's where I became confused. Nathan Fillion is very popular at the moment, but aside from Firefly, I haven't seen him do anything that could resonate through the generations. Bruce Campbell was never movie star popular, but his Evil Dead movies are cult classics that have had a steady following for 3 decades. I don't think its blasphemy to compare Fillion to Campbell or anything. I just thought it was an odd comparison to make. Now that I think about it, Fillion is closer to William Shatner than anyone. He's Canadian, played the captain of a starship, moved on to a popular, generic T.V. show where he solves mysteries and did a movie based on his genre T.V. show.

They have been doing all kinds of test marketing, and as stupid as this sounds, teen boys and young adult men want nothing to do with the character. Further, kids unfamiliar with Wonder Woman say they won't see a movie with WOMAN in the title. I got so mad when he told me all this.

Which ever way you look at it, it sounds completely ALF. It's a hot woman, in a skimpy outfit, whats's wrong with that?

Dumbledore men would want to be here, and Men and Dumbledore women would want to fuck her....I see no problem. How on earth are they pitching this to these people? Is this Bush's new job because I think he's the only man that if he tried to give AIDS drugs to Africa, they'd reject it.

I've never really watched Nathan Fillion or enjoyed his work, but I happened to have the TV on when that Castle show came on last night, and I sort of planned to change the channel, but I couldn't stop watching. He has great chemistry with the female lead of that show, and he's pretty charming. That's a great character for him.

All that to say... I hope they do cast him, becuase he's pretty enjoyable.

Wonder Woman. Sheesh. The main audience for comic book movies is teenage boys. The character in this movie is a woman with incredible strength and superpowers who would eat teenage boys for breakfast. They can't relate to her - they fear her.

Superman? They relate to him. Male superheroes are beings they can relate to. Female superheroes terrify teenage boys.

I don't have any statistical data for that, but I'm putting it out there anyway.

Alan Alda clearly wants to be led around on all fours on a leash by Christina Aguilara, or maybe Pia Zadora.
