Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

The cities of ancient Greece thought of themselves as countries and the greater Greece was just something that came into play when the dirty foreigners started kicking over dominoes... The limits of Greece were more accurately the language barrier than any geographical constraints.

What language do the Amazons speak when they're by themselves?

However, DC has always portrayed them with a Greco/Roman image. There really hasn't been any serious attempt to portray them otherwise.
Hence the confusion.

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

A breakdown of the character has been released revealing some new details, one of the most interesting of which I have bolded:

According to the breakdown I’ve obtained, her name is Iris (not Diana). “She comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She’s delighted *and just as often horrified * by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling *to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times. She’s bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you’re lying to her. And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see *and things to learn *and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic *and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere.”
Deadline

I haven't read any of her comics, so how true to the character is this (other than the name, obviously)?

About as close to the literature as Halle Berry's Catwoman movie was. Possibly less so!

Re: Another "Wonder Woman" show now in early development

That sounds like Ziva during her first few seasons of NCIS.

Although seriously, where in the world do you have to live to have never had ice cream?

The Italians invented it in the 17th century.

Frakk,

They're calling her Iris because she's seeing the world through a fresh set of eyes.

I am going to send the same email to the CW every day. This is not what we want to see!
Simply pathetic that we keep getting reports about these horrible attempts to bring bastardized versions of classic superfolk to the small screen. It shouldnt be that hard to do......sigh.....ok I feel better now.

So if this show is being made, does this mean the WW movie is now dead?

Any Warners execs who aren't idiots are kicking themselves about not letting Whedon go his own way with WW, now that he's directed one of the most successful movies of all time - a superhero film.

You can if you download it.

The WW pilot done by Kelley was leaked online a while back.

They saw the words "female" and "superhero" together and got absolutely terrified of doing the movie.
