Joss Whedon talks failed WONDER WOMAN movie
Joss Whedon recently did an interview for his highly anticipated film The Avengers. In the interview he also talked about his upcoming film Much Ado About Nothing and his failed Wonder Woman film project.
Here is an interview thanks to Blastr (via Vulture):
She was a little bit like Angelina Jolie [laughs]. She sort of traveled the world. She was very powerful and very naïve about people, and the fact that she was a goddess was how I eventually found my in to her humanity and vulnerability, because she would look at us and the way we kill each other and the way we let people starve and the way the world is run and she'd just be like, None of this makes sense to me. I can't cope with it, I can't understand, people are insane. And ultimately her romance with Steve was about him getting her to see what it's like not to be a goddess, what it's like when you are weak, when you do have all these forces controlling you and there's nothing you can do about it. That was the sort of central concept of the thing. Him teaching her humanity and her saying, OK, great, but we can still do better.
Whedon first signed on to write and direct the Warner Bros. project in 2003, but it met it's demise in 2007, when both Whedon and the studio had different views on the story. The project may still have some life in it's lasso thanks to Drive's Nicolas Winding Refn. The Logan's Run director is very interested in directing his take on the Amazon princess. There is a definite possibility that this project could get back into action if Man of Steel does as well as expected for WB.
What are your thoughts on the chance of a Wonder Woman movie?
