Fans of DC and the character have wondered for years when we might see a Wonder Woman movie. After decades of only Batman and Superman films, the tide seemed as though it was ready to change, with Green Lantern and The Flash getting big screen projects into development. The bad news is that it looks as though we won't be getting a Wonder Woman movie. The good news is that we will be getting a new Wonder Woman TV show. THR is reporting that Warner Bros. Television and David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, The Practice) are developing a new, live-action Wonder Woman television show. One of the most notable incarnations of the character beyond comic books was the television series with Lynda Carter that aired from 1975-79.
It's a shame that Joss Whedon won't be the one to bring Wonder Woman to television, but considering the fallout that occurred when he was tasked with making a film version in 2005, it's hardly surprising. Now the only question is whether people will watch it. No Ordinary Family had great numbers in its early week and people loved the first season of Heroes, but, as THR points out, Bionic Woman was a bomb, as was the series Birds Of Prey. If they can get this one off the ground, let's just hope they do it right.
