One of the great pop culture white whales of recent years has been Joss Whedon's mysterious Wonder Woman script. As audiences begged for the iconic superheroine to hit the big screen, and Whedon's take was rejected, that rejected script became a symbol of Everything That's Wrong with Hollywood. It became a symbol of an All Boys' Club trying to keep superhero movies For Men Only. Turns out? That script was just bad. And also hella sexist.
In late 2014, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Jason Fuchs, known for Pan and Ice Age: Continental Drift, was set to write the Wonder Woman movie with then-director Michelle MacLaren. Since then, of course, a lot has changed.
Even though we're pretty jaded when it comes to Wonder Woman film or television projects, we were hopeful at the prospect
of the CW making plans to produce a new series that would feature a young Princess Diana. Some new details about the show, titled Amazon
, have surfaced including casting details and the character description of its lead - Iris. Wait? Who? Yeah, they're calling Wonder Woman Iris.
If someone was thinking about making a Wonder Woman
show, you would want to know, right? No matter how many times we've been burned? No matter how early in the production it is? No matter if it's just a concept and not a script?
Yeah. I know. I'd want to know too.
