Justice League isn’t happening, Superman is getting a darker reboot and Batman is expected to make a third outing…so where does that leave Wonder Woman? Well producer Leonard Goldberg, who has been trying to make a Wonder Woman movie since the 70’s, gave an update to Splash Page:
“We’re waiting for the script to come in,” says producer Leonard Goldberg (”Charlie’s Angels”), who’s working on the film alongside Joel Silver.
One rumored possibility: the Wachowski brothers (”The Matrix,” “Speed Racer”). “At one time, Joel [Silver] said they might have an idea. But they got diverted to another project [and] never followed through,” he said, before adding, “There may come a time when they will be focused on ‘Wonder Woman’ and may come up with whatever their take on it was. They’re certainly very talented guys. Their vision for movies — whether they’re successful or not — is always singular.”
Goldberg claims he and Silver haven’t started discussing the lucky lass who’ll play the super-powered Amazon royal, but notes, “I would go with a right unknown. People are not, in my opinion, going to come [to the theater] for the actress. They’re going to come for Wonder Woman.”
Actress Megan Gale had been cast as Wonder Woman in the now dead Justice League movie, and I think she would be a great choice. I expect we could get a Wonder Woman movie within the next 7 years, as Warner Bros are working their way towards a Justice League movie where we already know the characters, unlike their previous plan which was to throw them at us in one giant mess of a movie.
