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

ToonZone spoke with James Tucker, supervising producer of Warner Bros’ DC animated features recently while promoting their latest release, Justice League: War. The interviewer brought up Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara’s recent comments about a live-action Wonder Woman project, wondering if those ideas had trickled down to animation. Tucker, who’s never met or directly dealt with the CEO, replied with:

They’d have to have a movie out and it’d have to do really, really, really, really REALLY well for them to go back to that. You just never know. It hasn’t happened yet. But I would be all for it. As far as what we’re doing, we’ll probably do a Wonder Woman-centered Justice League movie. We’ll use the Justice League as an umbrella to focus on characters who might not be able to support DVDs of their own. That’s not my judgment, that’s based on sales. But yeah, we’ll handle Wonder Woman in our own way, regardless of whether they’ll do a movie or not. I like her as a character and want to feature her as much as we can. But it will probably be in the context of a Justice League movie.

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

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.

There's already a an Episode of Doctor Who called "Let's kill Hitler" but surely a Wonder Woman movie called Lets kill Hitler would sell gangbusters?

I'd really like to see another WW animated movie, regardless of how they have to get it done. I thought the first one was really good.

I'm just trying to imagine Keri in a live action version of Wonder Woman.

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Well, it's not like it's unprecedented. We had a Batman movie called "The Dark Knight" and a Superman called "Man of Steel".

"Amazing Amazon"? "The Amazon Princess"?

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

No silly.

They mean that the name of the movie will be taken from an ensemble or an event that is happening to the DCU rather than calling her movie something vaguely Amazony, no matter even if Wonder Woman is technically the lead in some Justice or Trinity Movie.

Although isn't that against the letter of her contract with the Marsden estate?

IIRC, DC owns WW lock, stock and barrel now.

Well, they did say that the movie would be released under the Justice League banner. Since that's a proven seller, the plan is to do solo movies for heroes who are members of the JL, and use that as an excuse to put the JL label on them.

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.
