USA Today created an article about tough chicks
and the upcoming movies that feature these types of roles. The films included
Four [Alba], Domino
[Knightley], Aeon Flux
[Theron], and finally Whedon's latest project announcement-- Wonder
Woman [nobody picked yet].
Wonder Woman Talk
I am impressed with the amount of draw that has
been created to this once - thought - deceased franchise after Whedon announced
he would go forward with a Wonder Woman movie. Every time Joss
Whedon steps up to speak, people want to hear any developments on the film
of course], with the first question always being 'who will play Wonder Woman?'.
Today, in their article about films that carry tough chicks,
has Whedon speaking a little more on Wonder Woman and his current
plan of action for this unique project. First off, Whedon is the type of
guy who will make sure to throw every ounce of love into his project, especially
for a film such as Wonder Woman, so don't expect him to be rushing
Here is a snippet of Whedon on Wonder Woman [in the best sense]:
"I said yes, because in the process of
trying to say no, I thought about her character and fell in love with her,"
says Whedon, who will direct and is currently writing the adventure based
on the lone female equal to Batman and Superman in the DC Comics universe.
"She is a warrior in a world of complicity and compromise who will never
lay down her sword."
But not to worry, Whedon says. There is no rush
"As Joel said, she's been around for 60 years," he says. "She's not going anywhere. It's always a good time for Wonder Woman."
Sure that may be a bummer to some who want to see
Wonder Woman in action by 2006, but, as we learned from Christopher
Nolan with Batman
Begins, any comic adaptation worth doing is worth doing
right. Read the whole report at USA
