Warner Bros. Wants a ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie or TV Show

Warner Bros.' Kevin Tsujihara wants a Wonder Woman movie or TV show Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara attended a Beverly Hills entertainment law conference over the weekend, where he talked more about the studio's superhero movie plans. Aside from The Dark Knight and Man of Steel franchises, the CEO revealed that their lack of other superhero franchises has been a "missed opportunity." He also teased one particular project that he wants to see moving forward.

"We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."

The studio's Wonder Woman project has been in development for several years. However, we also reported last month that a casting call for Batman Vs. Superman may indicate that Diana of Themyscira has a role in this highly-anticipated sequel. The CW Network is also developing a Wonder Woman series entitled Amazon, although we reported in July that project has been put on hold.

Kevin Tsujihara also teased that they are working on more TV adaptations of DC Comics properties.

"(There are) huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV."

The DC universe is already represented on the small screen with The CW's Arrow, which returns for Season 2 Wednesday, October 9. We reported in July that the series may spawn a spin-off centering on The Flash. We reported last month that Grant Gustin is playing the speedy Dr. Barry Allen, who will appear in three Season 2 episodes, including the back-door pilot.

Wonder Woman comes to theaters June 23rd, 2017.

      @undeadslayer4 - Well sometimes patience can make for a better experience. And Marvel's Agents of Sheild is a side story that is attached to the universe but it is not an integral part of the film series. Wonder woman is integral to Justice LEague and if they are making a MOVIE universe then they should probably make a MOVIE about Wonder Woman.

          @undeadslayer4 - If they are trying to set up a successful movie universe then they should focus on films instead of TV shows.

            Olivia Wilde should be WW. Several people think so, so do the InnerSpace cast and several others in the Industry.

              @rjh094@instead8909 I completely agree with both of you. There needs to be a Wonder Woman already! But, they probably still need to find the right actress for the role for the movie.

                As of this project it needs to be a Feature film and I grew up on Linda Charter's version and loved it. Any other form I would reject, certain heroes need to be on TV, Wonder Woman had it's time on TV and it's time to bring it to the big screen.

                  @undeadslayer4 have you seen Castle, NYPD Blue or other cop shows. Imagine a cop drama set in Gotham with a young Jim Gorden, no superheroes, no supervillians. Dent would be very young, set way before he was Two -Face.

                  A 12 or 14 year old Bruce Wayne, we might see his parents before they die. All it is a cop show, not Shield, just a lot of normal seedy humans. Imagine seeing all of Batman's the super villains before they were turned.

                  Now with that said I personally have been reading a screenplay for a short of which I've submitted to. It's not the character I submitted to but once they see what I can do, they might change their minds. I was given a choice go into Toronto or make an E- pitch, I took the e-pitch.

                    Wonder Woman is probably the only female that can really hold her own movie right now. DC needs to take advantage of this. It's only a matter of time before Marvel decides to bring out one their leading females.

                        @undeadslayer4 There was an old tv series already based on Wonder Woman. From the 70's I think. It was pretty campy....it was bad. But I know that for its time it was well received.

                        I would be ok with a tv version if the character is done justice. WW is such a complex character that she could easily fit into a well written action/drama.

                        But I would much rather see a super flashy big budget version in theaters.

                          @instead8909 that sucks for gary but i wonder if its gonna focus more on bruce or is it gonna be like Marvel's Agents of sheild

                            @undeadslayer4 Gary might not return, the show it self is just another cop series but based in Gotham. They have to be careful at what they do, but showing a young Bruce Wayne (14 years old) might be needed.

                            It's going to be Mob heavy, some low life criminals and they can't show any of Batman's villains.

                                    they have been saying this for a long time now. Less talk more action.
