Constantine, yeah, that could be good. Get someone dark and broody played by an Ian Somerhalder look-alike, and that's right n the CW's wheelhouse.
Nah, you need a Gordon Sumner lookalike.

Why is Warners/DC is trying to copy everything Marvel does now?

First Avengers is a huge hit, Justice League is quickly annouced.

S.H.I.E.L.D is announced as tv show, now they are trying to rush a WW show onto the CW?

Well, the Justice League movie idea was out there before the Avengers film came out, but the effort failed. And as for TV, Arrow is about to premiere, which is long before the SHIELD is announced. Could it be said that Marvel is copying DC?

Besides, DC has long had a better record on the small screen, especially with live-action shows. I'm looking forward to the Wonder Woman idea and I hope the pilot gets the green light. The Smallville approach is fine with me, if it gets a Wonder Woman show on the air and brings in new viewers like Smallville did. Hopefully any new show won't shy away from Wonder Woman's comic roots and bring in many of her villains, etc.

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

After years of the electric company I was amazed that Spider-man could talk in the comics.

After years of watching Linda carter, i was amazed that Wonder Woman could fly in the comics.

If you give us a flying Wonder Woman this could be a very violent show.

"Now?" Come on -- Marvel and DC have been copying each other for generations.

Or to put it more fairly, they're competitors in the same industry, the two companies that have defined that industry for most of its history -- of course they're going to do similar things. What do you expect? That's like saying GM is copying Chrysler if they both introduce new car models with four wheels.

The idea of showing Diana's beginnings as Wonder Woman has potential, depending on how it's done. If, say, they followed the lead of George Perez's introduction of the post-Crisis WW, that could turn out nicely.

As for the concern that they'd follow the Smallville route of avoiding the costume, I'm reminding myself that by the last couple of seasons, there were plenty of costumed heroes on Smallville, and even Clark had a costume of sorts, though not the full Superman getup. By that point, the "no flights, no tights" rule was a relic of the beginnings of the series, dating from a time when networks were more wary about superheroes -- and, I gather, a matter of Welling's own preferences. Now we've got Arrow, which, while taking a more grounded, Nolanesque approach to Green Arrow, nonetheless does have him in a costume. It's a different era now than it was when Smallville began, an era where superheroes are a huge business and a TV show doesn't have to hide the fact that it's about one.

Maybe I'm just bitter that it took Warners/DC this long to finally get the Justice League thing going. Warners has owned DC for years now. They should have been schooling Marvel in the superhero movie department, a shared universe should have been so easy for them to do.

Also I still don't like how Batman and Superman focused they have been are at the expense of the less popular DC heroes.

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

To be fair though, DC / Warners, pretty much... well, they suck at Superhero movies...

As much as it pains me to admit it, they do...

Aside from the Batman Begins movies, I don't actually think there's been a solid superhero movie from DC / WB in the past 20 years...

lets have a quick rundown...

1995 Batman Forever - atrocious

1997 Batman & Robin - pathetic and laughable

1997 Steel - wtf lmao

2004 Catwoman - I won't even dignify that as being even remotely based on the character in question.

2005 Batman Begins - Ok, so they got one right lol

2005 Constantine - Aside from character names, there isn't even a single connection between the movie and the actual comics... characters are so different it's laughable that DC/WB could even comprehend them being 'based on' the comics.

2005 V for Vendetta - Just laughable

2006 Superman Returns - Wasn't overly terrible, but a far cry from what it could have been...

2008 The Dark Knight - reasonable... 6/10 I say...

2009 Watchmen - OK, best from DC / WB so far

2010 Jonah Hex - pft... lmao... not sure what was worse in this one, the script or the acting... pathetic...

2011 Green Lantern - So laughable, even long time Green Lantern fans avoided this one like the plague

2012 The Dark Knight Rises - 7/10... pretty decent for a Batman movie...

So in the past 20 years, DC/WB have managed to do 3, maybe 4, decent Superhero movies that actually stuck to the original characters and remained true to the writing... that's a pretty abysmal batting average for anyone, let alone a major company like DC/WB...
