Joss Whedon, the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “Firefly” is set to write and direct a feature film version of Wonder Woman, quite the daunting task. The role of Wonder Woman has yet to be cast… Why? Because as Joss tells Now Playing Magazine, “Let’s write the part! Then we’ll have a better idea of who’s good for it.” Sounds smart to me.
Whedon talked a lot more about the film with Now Playing, here is a snippet of what he had to say, to check out the rest click the link below:
“It goes back to World War II,” he says of the source material. “This will be in the modern day, but Wonder Woman herself will never be in the modern day.”
“She doesn’t have a villain as recognizable as [a Lex Luthor],” he explains. “In fact, she doesn’t have a lot of things as recognizable as a lot of the other heroes have, but that’s not a problem simply because she’s basically based on Greek mythology, which opens up a world of interesting possibilities. She’s very different from anybody who might have been bitten by a spider or had his parents killed in an alley.”
