Scooped on Sunday, July 11, 2010
The rumors panned out. Today it was announced by Warner Bros. that Joss Whedon has signed a deal to write and direct the Wonder Woman movie. Joel Silver and Leonard Goldberg will produce the film.
"There's no one better than Joss to adapt the legendary Wonder Woman comic book character created in the 1940s into a dynamic feature film for 21st century audiences," producer Joel Silver said in a company issued statement. "Wonder Woman was the first great female superhero to emerge from comic books and later inspire millions of fans in her television incarnation, but unlike her counterparts Batman and Superman, this groundbreaking heroine has yet to be reinvented for the feature film arena."
"Wonder Woman is the most iconic female heroine of our time, but in a way, no one has met her yet," said Whedon. "What I love most about icons is finding out what's behind them, exploring the price of their power. When Joel and I began discussing the character, I realized there is a woman behind the legend who is very fascinating, very uncompromising, and in her own way, almost vulnerable. She's someone who doesn't belong in this world, and since everyone I know feels that way about themselves, the character clicked for me."
"We are excited about working with Joss," added Warner Bros. Pictures' President of Production Jeff Robinov. "He brings great energy and creativity to the process. His work on Buffy makes him uniquely qualified to handle the Wonder Woman character."
Now the speculation begins as to which actress will play the Amazonian princess...
