Just caught this news tidbit tonight, and had to post.
One of the most anticipated upcoming comic book movies was the new adaptation of Wonder Woman, which was being written by Joss Whedon. Whedon is a cult favorite for shows like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and the more recent western/sci-fi series “Firefly” and the following movie “Serenity“.
As Joss Whedon reported on his own blog, Whedonesque:
“You (hopefully) heard it here first: I’m no longer slated to make Wonder Woman,” Whedon wrote. “What? But how? It’s pretty complicated, so bear with me. I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked. Hey, not that complicated.”
It’s surprising news, especially given the initial optimism that Whedon would be able to take Wonder Woman to production, after a number of failed attempts. He also made comments to the effect that he had never established an idea for a lead actress, likely the number one challenge with a character like Wonder Woman.
