    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"?

    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.

    What do you mean? I'm right here.
    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.

    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?

    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.
