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

What if Sarah Palin were to take off her glasses and put on a bathing suit, would you recognize her then?

Secret identity? How does that work? Does she wear a blonde wig? Running around in a bathing suit fighting villains makes it hard to keep a secret identity.
You're not really familiar with comics in general or Wonder Woman in particular, are you?

Last I heard, wonder woman didn't have a secret identity. Diana Prince can't take a dive in a swimming pool without revealing she is Wonder Woman. Did you ever think about that?

They should set it in the 30s.

She had one for her first forty years and off and on for the next thirty. No, I don't often waste time thinking about how Diana Prince can never go swimming. Because she's a comic book superhero, I'm willing to suspend disbelief in regards to "secret identities".

Because they're going the younger kid version route. So when 1941 rolls around in the show, she'll be the correct age when punching Nazis during WWII.

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

It was never actually said that Wonder Woman would be a "kid" in this. It just said "a young, budding superhero," a character at the start of her heroic career. (Again, the Smallville comparison was the reporter's interpretation, so we can't assume that's the actual plan.) That could be intepreted in a number of ways; "young" can mean young adult, someone in their 20s, not just a teenager. As I said before, the description could potentially fit the post-Crisis Perez reboot from the '80s, where Diana was an adult but still innocent and inexperienced with the world beyond Themyscira, having to learn her role as a superhero and celebrity as she went while trying to balance that with her mission as an ambassador for her people.

In any case, we don't know enough at this point to make any assumptions about how the show will actually be done.

If Thor can get his own successful movie, so can WW.
But everybody already expects Thor to smooch gals. Notice how Marvel Studios has yet to try a solo superheroine flick.

Hasn't stopped nine pages of speculation, though, has it?

I'd love to see that. I'm more interested in Wonder Woman's life than I am in non-stop crime fighting. When I saw the Wonder Woman pilot last year, the best stuff involved Diana, the CEO.

Whereas I liked it when Phil Jimenez and Greg Rucka, writing in the comics, focused on her work as the Themysciran ambassador, her advocacy and charity work, etc. In particular, Rucka's early issues brought a neat West Wing flavor to the embassy scenes.

Of course, it's a given that any live-action TV adaptation of a superhero is only going to devote a few minutes to action and fighting, since it would be too expensive to do otherwise. So there's zero chance that the show will be "non-stop crime fighting."
