'Wonder Woman' Show In Trouble

Like THAT'S a surprise....

Is The Wonder Woman TV Show In Trouble?

Apparently NBC's take on the Amazonian princess is not looking to good for air time. Click for the details..
It seems that this story originated in the LA Times, but I picked up the info from this vid over at IGN, in which they reveal that certain upcoming TV show's futures may be looking grim, including Locke & Key and Wonder Woman..

The LA Times is reporting that NBC's Wonder Woman is unlikely to get picked up, which lets face it, is probably for the better.

Or for the best even. Would anyone be surprised if this show wasn't picked up? I mean, some of the newer set pics looked ok. I certainly thought the changes they made to Adrian Palicki's costume were a solid improvement and she did look the part more or less. But from what we heard of the story , it was pretty much face palm time. Anyway, I'm still trying to find out some more about this. Will the pilot air at least? More info as we have it.

They should've just stuck with the original FILM idea by Joss Whedon. Funny how MARVEL now has him for THE AVENGERS & it's being 'fast-tracked' as we speak! DC's loss, Marvel's gain? To be honest, I don't know a lot about Whedon but I believe Marvel pretty much must know something to hire him for an epic film like Avengers. But isn't that what Marvel does? They 'grab the bull by the horns' so to speak. They seize their destiny.

WB/DC, OTOH, sit around 'twiddling their thumbs'. And doing stuff like the proposed WW TV series. Marvel aggressively pursues their projects. It may be 'hit & miss' at times but at least they TRY. WB/DC, OTOH, allow themselves to be 'held hostage' by, most notably, Christopher Nolan, & probably even their own insecurities. Meanwhile Marvel marches on & I believe THOR will be their latest triumph. Sure, I know WB/DC have GREEN LANTERN coming out shortly, as well as the next Bat-film & the Superman reboot, but to be honest, I just can't have the most 'faith' in their approach(es).

What would've been so wrong with the WW film anyway.? Didn't they even have that Joel Silver or whatever his name is working on it at one time? Obviously if they do a JLA film then Wonder Woman will need to be present but also impressive.

Maybe it's time to put the film back on track?! Rolling Eyes

Just to let you guys know and not to burst anybody's bubbles or anything but this has already been discuss on the "Wonder Woman's return to TV" thread. But then again a topic like this deserve it's own thread I guess so it's cool!

And speaking of which, it's like non_amos pointed out... They should of just stick to making a freaking film out of the damn thing just as they originally planned and should of stick to doing in the first place aleast they'll have a hefty budget to use and all they need from there is a qualified director and writers that can write a script that could lead the film to being epic!

Seriously is that so hard to do?

I'd be lying if I said I've been dreaming of a Joss Whedon Avengers film my entire life. But, as far as directors are concerned, Marvel has yet to let me down.

As to why his version of Wonder Woman got shit-canned, I firmly believe there was a time when WB was serious about more aggressively developing their superhero properties. But then Singerman came along. Before then, you were hearing all sorts of rumors about Flash, WW and other movies. And then either the rumors dried up or, in the case of Whedon's WW, they were outright canceled. As far as sinking ships are concerned, basically Singerman took a lot of other projects down. But there were other superhero projects too far along in the pipeline to recall, particularly Watchmen and TDK. So I suspect WB let those ride rather than cutting their losses. TDK... well, everybody knows what happened there.

I think the combination of Singerman and TDK has given WB a strange neurosis. They're dragging their feet about developing the superhero properties since their films tend to be either drastic successes or drastic failures. I can't immediately think of a superhero film they've developed lately (apart from Batman Begins) that did decent box office; usually it's one extreme or the other.

WB/DC, OTOH, sit around 'twiddling their thumbs'. And doing stuff like the proposed WW TV series. Marvel aggressively pursues their projects. It may be 'hit & miss' at times but at least they TRY. WB/DC, OTOH, allow themselves to be 'held hostage' by, most notably, Christopher Nolan, & probably even their own insecurities. Meanwhile Marvel marches on & I believe THOR will be their latest triumph. Sure, I know WB/DC have GREEN LANTERN coming out shortly, as well as the next Bat-film & the Superman reboot, but to be honest, I just can't have the most 'faith' in their approach(es).
Are you just saying that because the Justice League of America film has a completely idiotic concept of being divorced from the other film universes?

Maybe it's time to put the film back on track?! Rolling Eyes
Until/unless WB tells Chris Nolan to stick his thumb up his ass and combines the movie franchises into a JLA film, I won't have any confidence in their ability to develop jackshit.

Superman, as a property, is in serious trouble. Unless something radical happens soon, WB will lose him... and for as pissed off as I get about the damage that will surely inflict on the character (seriously, he will never recover from that), part of me thinks WB deserves for it being such ass-clowns about their comic book properties.

I know this ain't a Superman thread but to comment on that specific point, I hope some 'last-minute deal' is worked out between WB/DC & duh heirs. In other words, to allow Superman to continue to be a part of pop culture. It sucks the big one if they don't! Sure, duh heirs are greedy and hurt and being 'manipulated' by Toberoff, but let's face it, as screwed up as WB/DC are, they stand the best chance of continuing the various media franchises. Duh heirs? Let's see them put out a line of Superman comics or a film and/or TV franchise! Let's see Toberoff do it too! No, they'd just sink the character once & for all & we really will have 'the death of Superman'! As for them selling to MARVEL? Sure, Marvel know what they're doing for the most part, but we wouldn't have the true Superman. We'd have a Marvelized Superman because Marvel wouldn't have the rights to most of the mythos, so what do we end up with? POWERMAN?! Incidentally I liked the Powerman character back in the day who even had Superman-like strength but for Superman? I want, simply, SUPERMAN! The real deal!

Speaking of which, I'm sure most of the general public would want this also, especially if the Superman reboot is a smash hit & Cavill wins people over. Why nip that in the bud because of all of this legal crapola?! Evil or Very Mad

We already know that NBC passed on the Wonder Woman pilot. I just thought it'd be interesting to post this for anyone who has the time to read all of this:

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=77584

I didn't read all of this but I read enough that the only place I saw the WW pilot mentioned was in the comments section! It was very noticeably absent from the main text. Not really news, I know. Just rubbing more 'salt in the wound' I guess. Smile
