Wonder Woman Lassoing Her Way to Television

Wonder Woman is heading to television sets around the world thanks to Ally McBeal’s David E. Kelley. Yeah, the most majestic heroine in DC Comics is getting a television show by the guy that used to make a show about some anorexic, goofy-ass lawyer. Here’s the word from E!:

Wonder Woman is back in the news, and this time she’s getting — the Ally McBeal treatment?! Ally creator David E. Kelley is the latest Hollywood bigwig to take a stab at resurrecting the Wonder Woman franchise. But unlike those who’ve ventured into the abyss before him (we’re looking at you, Joss Whedon), Kelley has secured a deal with Warner Bros. to bring the princess to the small screen.

I realize that some people still think of Wonder Woman as Lynda Carter or that chick in Super Friends that did nothing but fly around with Aquaman in an invisible jet, but I appreciate her role as one of the three pillars of the DC Universe. I love the “preach peace, practice violence” contradiction of her character. I think it’s great that the entire DCU has a crush on her, but she’s also matronly, an ambassador, a diplomat, and warrior. I haven’t watched Kelley’s other shows, but I’m absolutely terrified of him making a Wonder Woman show.

What do you think of this news? Do you have any casting ideas for Wonder Woman?

  1. *crap*

    i meant are they going to make wear pants, like DC Comics has decided to do?

    *stupid brain* now i know how Jay Cutler felt like at halftime.

  2. I never got the whole Wonder Woman thing honestly. Mind you, I feel that same way about 80% of DC comics.

  3. @nightshade

    i agree, idk what's up with Wonder Woman. she's one of my least favorite DCU characters.

  4. I really only ever got in to Spider-Man, so I can't say a whole lot about this other than I probably won't watch it unless someone tells me it is really good.

    i wish i could but none of the story arcs with her do it for me. Then they decide to give her pants, it's like really??? you think after 60 plus years that adding pants to wonder woman is going to increase her popularity.

  6. I like the pics.

    I think Wonder Woman needs to be a woman with huge assets.

    I’m sure I won’t watch the show though.

  7. Lynda Carter is the only Wonder Woman in my mind. I liked the old 70's (or was it 80's?) TV series when I was a kid.

    it is but so is fighting with tights, capes and masks. they're comics people over think them with too much logic at times.

  9. @tokz_21 Tights make total sense! Wrestlers wear tights! Masks are necessary for concealing identity. Capes…well, I have a similar opinion of them as Edna Mode.

    Ha! I love the incredibles mention. Ok masks fine but theres only a few dc characters that use them. Tights i guess are okay but i dont like how sometimes artists feel the need to detail certain areas especially on the male characters. Im glad to see that we agree on capes though.
