Apos: As appealing as the thought of a bustier-clad Erica Durance is...
Coelacanth: You know what I'd like to see?Steve Trevor dies and WW goes rogue because he was the only control the US ever had over her. She was an artificial (although magical) being who's mission was to destroy the Axis, the Nazis in particular. Now that Steve is gone and WW is able to sorta kinda think for herself, she goes after the Nazis here on American soil, ripping them apart like ready-to-eat roast chickens from your supermarket deli. But these days, there are so many groups and individuals running loose that qualify as Nazis, a fairly large portion of the American public are in danger.Imagine WW playing Terminator.
Contents Under Pressure: Mugato: Morena Baccarin, the girl from Firefly would work well.[www2.pictures.zimbio.com image 431x594]Indeed. David E Kelly is the wrong man for the job. Let's get Joss Whedon in on it. He knows how to treat female characters, keeping them interesting, three dimensional, and yet allowing the male viewers some eye candy without pissing off the female viewers.
KatjaMouse: Wonder Woman can work. I feel if they actually went straight back to its roots, almost like the Thor movie or the original Superman, and introduced the audience to this concept of otherness and exceptionalism then we could accept a divine heroine to walk among us. Allow her to have a fabulous warrior get up on the Island, hang out with Amazons in a spectacularly rendered backdrop and then she finds herself down in the dirt with humans and all that nice sheen has been rubbed off. She fights in jeans and a leather jacket, only breaks out the lasso on special occasions. Maybe a gay boyfriend makes her the 70s Wonder Woman costume (joke for the audience) and she's all "Aww hell naw". Ease the audience into this world of supernatural villains and heroes. Don't jump straight into having a single female lawyer donning the star spangled panties and fighting crime. Bring out the Greek style armor for the season finale.
Karac: psychicdeath99: There can only be one.[i13.photobucket.com image 850x674]Wow!I don't know, the lead chick from Bones did a decent job of pulling off the getup.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 850x705]Any remake of Wonder Woman should be done by HBO to really play up the bondage theme central to the character.
PonceAlyosha: Good. I love Wonder Woman, especially Greg Rucka's Wonder West Wing run and the current New 52 stuff, but Wonder Woman does not translate into a television serialized drama. One, her backstory and secondary characters are hugely expensive to cast and depict. Of those secondary characters, ninety percent of them are nameless Amazons, no e who are it allowed to leave, thus can not interact with any outside plots unless you set the episodes on Themyscira.Two, her foes are primarily mythological beasts, not criminals, making things more expensive.If you want a reasonable DC property to adapt besides Green Arrow for live action, look at something like Gotham Central, Manhunter or the Secret Six or Orstrander era Suicide Squad.
psychicdeath99: There can only be one.Wow!
