No real news - heck, there's not even the confirmation of a title of the forthcoming film - but over at CBR there's a couple of quotes from Warner Bros. executive Greg Silverman concerning various rumours, specifically those saying that Wonder Woman would turn up in the new film:
“We have been doing a lot of thinking for years about how to best use all those characters and we love them. Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it’s a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero.”It's a shame that "thinking for years" is pretty much all they've been doing, to be honest, while Marvel gleefully romps away with the superhero film market neatly sewn up. That said, and if they're quick, Warner Bros (and DC by extension) could still pip Marvel to the post in being the first to bring a successful film with a central female superhero to the market.
Wonder Woman is perfect from the point of name and image recognition and - as the fan made trailer showed a couple of weeks ago - if she's treated with respect, imagination and like the mythical goddess-like character she can be, there's no end to the stories that could be told.
It's a shame any potential Wonder Woman movie could be launched from whatever Superman Vs Batman ends up being called rather than as a standalone, but it's better than nothing.
