This has actually been done before. There was a series of Justice League of America novels from Pocket Books about a decade ago, but all but one of them were solo books featuring Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Superman respectively. Only the last one was about the full team.
I only read a couple of them, but the solo ones I read still featured the team prominently. They only put the hero from the title in the most prominent role.

The final one is my favorite superhero novel and one of my favorite JL stories of all time. No relevance on the topic, just putting it out there.

its a shame, because the Wonder Woman animated film was one of the best DTV movies they produced.
But like they said, it comes down to sales. They do intend to make more Wonder Woman and solo-superhero animated movies, but they're sneaking them in under the Justice League banner because that's a proven seller. I'm happy with that. Sometimes you have to get creative with titles or presentation in order to appease the sales and marketing people so you can do what you wanted to do all along. What matters is that a WW movie gets made, regardless of what they call it.
The problem is, the ladies commenting on the article at <i>The Mary Sue</i> aren't satisfied and are accusing DC and Warners of not doing enough to sell Wonder Woman to everybody.:roll eyes:


Sometime, I wish that people would learn what business is by taking business classes, as Temis The Vorta once said.

Me too. In fact, I wonder why they haven't done so already. Maybe they're waiting until a Justice League movie can be done?

Re: Next Wonder Woman movie won't have her name in the title

While it is kind of crappy not to put her name in the title, at this point I'd just be happy to get any kind of movie focusing on Wonder Woman. I read the article but wasn't entirely clear on if it was WW centric Justice League movie, or if it would be a WW solo movie that was just put under a Justice League banner.

Well they also mentioned lesser known Heroes that also needed some exposure, so, I was thinking Justice League from Wonder Woman's perspective with Superman and Bat-Affleck tossed in. and then the lesser knowns.

Bat-Affleck? This is about the DC Universe Animated Original Movie series, and as far as I know they haven't announced any tie-ins to the current live action movies.

Tucker never actually says her name won't be in the title, despite the claim in the headline. At least, he didn't say that in the quoted portion -- he just said they'd be using Justice League as an "umbrella" for films about heroes who aren't Superman and Batman. Maybe it'd be like the Pocket novels I mentioned, where Justice League is a supertitle for the series and the individual installment is titled Wonder Woman: Something. Or maybe it'll be called Justice League: Wonder Woman.


I read the article but wasn't entirely clear on if it was WW centric Justice League movie, or if it would be a WW solo movie that was just put under a Justice League banner.
Tucker's exact words were "a Wonder Woman-centered Justice League movie." Probably like the way individual episodes of JL/JLU would focus on specific members of the team, and others would be present in the background but not carrying the story.

Oh, I must've read something wrong, I got the impression, they specifically weren't talking about Animated

^The interview is with James Tucker. He's the producer of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series, having taken over from Bruce Timm. If it had been about the live-action movies, the interview would've been with Zack Snyder or David Goyer or someone like that.
