Wonder Woman Movie Moving Forward With Green Lantern Screenwriter
Buried, somewhat, beneath the noisy buzz surrounding news that Warner Bros. plans to move forward with a Justice League movie is the news item that a script is being commissioned for a Wonder Woman film, with a Green Lantern scribe hard at work and trying to deliver in a timely fashion.
That makes sense. Of the Leagueís ďBig ThreeĒ (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman), only Diana of Themyscira has yet to receive a proper big-screen adaptation. Now it sounds like itís closer than we might have thought. Variety, in reporting on the JLA movie, says that Green Lantern co-writer Michael Goldenberg has been hired to write a Wonder Woman script. And thatís all weíre told. No mention on when he was hired, or when itís supposed to be delivered. But with news that Justice League is moving forward, and plans to reboot Superman (with Man of Steel) and possibly bring Green Lantern back for a sequel, it appears that the DC Comics universe isnít as far behind Marvel as we assume.
In the same story, Variety says that Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green are hard at work on a Flash screenplay for Greg Berlanti to possibly direct. And while Christopher Nolan is bringing his Batman trilogy to a close, wouldnít it be amazing if he and Christian Bale took a victory lap through comic-book fandom by bringing their Dark Knight to the Justice League movie, with Nolan directing?
OK, that might be too much to hope for. But in the wake of The Avengers lighting up the box-office charts, Warner had to make a move, and it seems like they are moving their pieces around. We might see a Wonder Woman movie in theaters in the next few years. At the very least, itís encouraging to hear that a script is in the works. Letís see how it plays out.
