What We Think: For a long time the golden age-era Wonder Woman comic book character was often considered a third-rate superhero. C'mon, be honest: if you were picking your soccer players from the members of the Justice League... More »

After scooping us the news that Winnipeg-based Frantic Films had won the job to create pre-visual animatics for X-Men 2, the same individual also mentioned that rumors had been floating around that the company has been commissioned to do some work on Wonder Woman.

It might be bad news, people. According to Ms. Bullock herself (as quoted in Liz Smith's April 4 edition of her Page Six column), the actress may has moved past starring in Wonder Woman. While talking to Bullock about a recent costume party where people arrived as their favorite heroes, she quipped "Unfortunately, the idea of my doing Wonder Woman also bit the dust." Uh, did Sandra mean her costume for the night or starring in the movie itself?- The anonymous faxer strikes again! Comment on this Scoop (0)

We've now had two people send us emails saying that E! News reported two days ago that Sandra Bullock had officially signed to star in the Wonder Woman movie. The news has been picked up by the Z News and Moviehole websites.
We've seen nothing from the trades that indicate Bullock's signed to play the Amazonian superheroine. Time to put a phone call into Silver Pictures and see if there's any truth to this rumor.- Reports sent in by Paul Heath and Clint Morris. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Here's an interesting new twist in the casting of Wonder Woman: while speaking with TV Week magazine, Jennifer Aniston said if she were to do a superhero movie, she would love to play Wonder Woman. Aniston also said that if someone were to remake The Bionic Woman into a feature film, she'd also love to play that character.- Moviehole was first to report of it online; originally appeared in TV Week.

The almighty Stax of IGN FilmForce has posted his review of Todd Alcott's Wonder Woman screenplay -- and the Stax-man was worried about what he saw.
"This Wonder Woman recycles signature elements from other super-heroes rather than establishing anything unique of her own. The first ten pages feature Diana Prince as a sort of cross between Superman and James Bond, a secret agent who can fly at the speed of sound (yes, that's one of Wonder Woman's powers here). She even soars down to retrieve a falling child like Superman did in the Niagra Falls rescue scene fromSuperman II," writes Stax.
"I suppose if I was a die-hard Wonder Woman fan I might have been mortified by this 're-imagining.' Instead, I was just left with a greater ambivalence about the project. This story recycled already overdone genre elements that recalled far too many (better) comic book and adventure movies."- IGN FilmForce. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Comics2Film reports good things about the completed screenplay for Wonder Woman. According to that site, the word on the street is that Todd Alcott's dramatic-oriented script has gathered praise from industry types. There's no comic book adversary for the amazonian princess to square off against, but C2F said there's still a lot of "high-octane action" happening between the two covers.- Originally appeared on Comics2Film.

While it's nothing new to report, it is a quote from the WW producer Leonard Goldberg on which actress is interested in playing the Amazonian princess: Sandra Bullock. "Sandy's interested, and we've met with her,'' Goldberg told Variety's Michael Fleming. "It all depends on the script and director, of course, but she hasn't done anything this physical in a long time, and she'd like to. We'd love to have her."- Scooped by 'gnomesis'; originally appeared in Variety Comment on this Scoop (0)

We've just received another Wonder Woman update from one of our scoopers. In the midst of all the Mariah Carey as Wonder Woman buzz, apparently producer Joel Silver recently had his sights set on Sandra Bullock for the title role but his interest seemed to fade as Bullock's box office appeal has done somewhat the same. Our scooper confirms that Carey is on the list but not at the top of it as other actresses such as Courtney Cox, Carrie Anne Moss, and Sharon Stone are also listed. Our scooper who claims to be close to the production itself, reveals there is talk of taking Wonder Woman down a road similar to Batman instead of the film being too campy. Apparently, there is a wait and see attitude with the upcoming Charlie's Angels film to measure the success of Cameron Diaz as a possible candidate as well. That sounds wonder-ful.
Meanwhile, the ever resourceful Comics2Film reports on Mariah Carey story that apparently first originated in the UK's Daily Star. Wonder Woman fans shouldn't get too carried away with the Mariah Carey rumors. Here's the latest prognosis from Comics2Film:
"Rumors began circulating yesterday that singing star Mariah Carey was set to launch her acting career and had been offered the lead role in the upcoming Wonder Woman movie. Fans who were upset by this horrendous miscasting can breath a little easier...Our source-in-the-know claims that he's heard nothing of the kind from his end of the project. However, he did caution us that there are many hands on this project and it's possible that talks with Carey have happened with other involved parties."- Reported by Reg. Comment on this Scoop (0)

With Halloween justa round the corner, a scary Wonder Woman rumor has popped up over at IMDb today: singer-turned-actress Mariah Carey is reported to have been offered the role of Wonder Woman. No, really, we're not pulling your leg.
According to a mysterious "friend" quoted by the IMDb, "Mariah is so excited about her film career, and especially with the Wonder Woman role. She has a great sense of humour and is a brilliant actress."
No, you're not dreaming, and we're sorry.- Grason and anonymous were the first people to shatter our hearts with this news; originally appeared on The Internet Movie Database. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Can you imagine Penthouse Pet and Heavy Metal 2000 star Julie Strain as Wonder Woman? She can -- and so can a lot of guys.
"Last night at 8pm on Yahoo! Chat and sponsored by BigStar.com, B-Movie queen Julie Strain was the special guest for an hour long Q & A session with online chatters, of which I took part. At 6'1", I don't think anyone can argue that Ms. Strain would be one of the best choices to play Wonder Woman in the upcoming Joel Silver production (despite the fact she is 38) and it's unfortunate that the frontrunner at this point seems to be Sandra Bullock. During last night's chat, I was fortunate enough to have Julie answer my question which was as follows:
'Have you ever been approached to play Wonder Woman in the upcoming film? As you may know, Sandra Bullock is the frontrunner, which is a ridiculous choice.'
Julie's response was:
"I auditioned for that Wonder Woman movie and I know I'm the best Wonder Woman, but I found out that Sandra Bullock is playing that part.
"It's ridiculous - - you want to see someone with long legs in that part.
"But I'm the Wonder Woman Year 2000; I know it and everyone else knows it.
"I'll wear stars and stripes and a g-string to the movie premiere, and I'll show everyone who the real Wonder Woman is."
"So, at least we know she had an opportunity to audition and I wouldn't necessarily say she is out of the running because despite her statement about Sandra Bullock getting the part, I don't think that has been confirmed. I don't think it's official yet. Perhaps Julie didn't get the part because of her age, which is 38, but last night she had no qualms about saying that she still looks 25, and there's really no argument there. Thank you."- Scott Hargraves thinks Julie's worth the climb. Comment on this Scoop (0)

What's this we hear? American Pie's Shannon Elizabeth as Wonder Woman? Lynda Carter, TV's Wonder Woman from the 70's, as the Amazonian goddess Hippolyta? Some people inside Warner Bros. are talking about this as a possibility for the WW movie? We're told from our buddy that it's no joke!- Our pal LD ain't laughing about it. Comment on this Scoop (0)
