While discussing their new deal with J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara also stated that he still intends to adapt some of their DC properties. When talking about the future of DC he stated that they have got “huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV.” and that they need to get either a Wonder Woman movie on the big screen or create a TV show.
As much as I want Wonder Woman to make an appearance, I don’t see her making it to the big screen until after the Justice League movie. I do, however find a TV series to be much more plausible. There have already been attempts by the CW to make a Wonder Woman origin series called Amazon in an effort to build on the success of Arrow (which will air it’s Season 2 premiere on Wednesday night). Unfortunately, that show has been put “on pause” for the time being in order to focus on a Flash series after apparently being less than thrilled with Amazon’s pilot script. This isn’t exactly the first time they’ve had trouble to get a Wonder Woman property off the ground. Recent failures have included an unfinished Wonder Woman movie script from Joss Whedon and an 2011 pilot from NBC that was so horrible it has never been officially aired (and for good reason).
While I understand both Warner Bros. and CW’s hesitation to put Wonder Woman on the screen (I’m certainly in no mood for a repeat of the NBC pilot), I constantly find myself asking why the heck it’s so hard to begin with. As far as I’m concerned if they really want to know how to do a Wonder Woman movie right, they don’t need to look any farther than the 2009 DC animated movie. It managed to go through her origin story, had good character development, and entertaining fight scenes. If you haven’t seen it yet I highly recommend you check it out.
Do you think Wonder Woman should get her own movie? Would you watch Amazon? Who do you think should play Wonder Woman? Why don’t you let us know your thoughts in the comment section below?

I would like to like to see Wonder Woman make an appearance but I don’t see a TV series being very successful right now. I will probably watch Amazon once it is available to see how I feel. I hope they don’t get someone like Jessica Alba or Jennifer Garner to play the part but somehow I think they will.
I figure for the Justice League movie they’ll take the same route as with Superman and cast an unknown. I can see them going with a Jennifer Garner type but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Daredevil may have sucked but she was hardly the reason for that.
