Re: I'd Pay to See Kathryn Bigelow Direct Wonder Woman - Would You?
Wonder Woman's mythos presents many problems, but the basic hook to the character, particularly in her first appearance, is really not that hard. Diana's a newcomer, who has long dreamed of exploring the wider world, which she's been sent to save. She believes in peace, justice, all that stuff -- not really that different from other superheroes.
Part of the problem could be that the basic hook is a little too similar to Superman
