"Wonder Woman" movie in active development
After Marvel Studios stole some of its "Dark Knight" thunder, Warner Bros. has made updating and empowering its' DC Entertainment division a priority. The studio is already in production on a new "Green Lantern" movie set for release next summer and has announced release dates for a third Chris Nolan "Batman" film (July 20, 2012) and, baring any legal difficulties, a new Nolan produced "Superman" for Christmas 2012. Speaking to investors on Thursday, CEO Barry Meyer announced that not only is a "Flash" movie close to being greenlit, but films featuring "Wonderman" and "Acquaman" are in active development.
This is intriguing news considering "Wonder Woman" has been stuck in development hell since the mid-90s. At one time Joss Whedon was on board to write and possibly direct (he's now unofficially directing "The Avengers" for Marvel) and studio producer Joel Silver tried a number of different takes on the Amazon princess. In recent interviews, Silver seemed unsure if he was still even involved with the property (we don't know either).
Needless to say, this is one project to keep an eye on.
