    Before I actually read this article, I just want one question answered. Why the fu@& do we need a Wonder Woman movie like our fu@&!ng lives depend on it? WHY?!
    Over on the DC Wonder Board there are at least 4 or 5 threads on the front page about casting the movie, dead-end leads on news and people giving their two cents on how they want the movie to look EVERY DAY. I honestly can't stand it and I feel it feeds into the view that Hollywood has of comics as being ready-made story boards with no regard whatsoever for the content or characters involved. Nevermind that more often than not comic book movies are big giant stinkers and colossal wastes of time and money. Only in the last 5 years or so has the quality improved somewhat, but that doesn't excuse all the previous bombs. Why have moveis become the be-all end-all for media and comics especially? Does a comic not have a legitimate existance as a piece of art or entertainment unless there's a fu@&!ng movie in the works? Seriously people, I'd like to know what everyone thinks on this.

    Honestly? Because live-action media are FANN.

    The answer that first comes to mind, is that movies have become the media that reaches the largest audience. This does not make other forms less artistic or meaningful. But movies have firmly established themselves as the number one entertainment of choice for the entire planet.

    Peolple read less and less, the music industry once the most important in terms of reaching young people is dying, a successful comic sells about 100,000 copies tops, even video games once thought to be the new thing has seen sales decrease.

    But movies still facinate people the world over. Of course, even that industry has to adapt to survive changing socio-economic turmoil.

    But what you might be failing to take into consideration is that the interest and respect being shown the comic world by the movie industry is fairly new, dating back to the first Blade film in 98. Before that Hollywood made campy, silly versions of comic fare and thought they were for children.

    So for most comic fans, this is fairly new and they would like to see their own favorite character on the screen before this popularity fades.

    Is it too soon to start speculating about the WW reboot movie that will come out 4-5 years after this WW movie finally sees the light of day?

    I'm gonna sit in a corner with my fingers jammed in my ears until this blows over. I've had enough of the Sandra Bullocks and Whedons of the world thinking they can do such a bang up job and making asses of themselves. Sick of it.

    You must also accept that the only way Wonder Woman is going to get more series is if the sales increase. And despite having top quality writing and art, that is not happening now. So by cross-promoting the character in other media, you might bring in new readers.

    If WW were to appear in films, an animated tv series and say some videogames, you increase her visibility. Throw in some merchandising and before you know it kids are talking about her and asking their parents about her. Books start to sell.

    They should have put out a WW movie in the late 80's early 90's when the Superman and Batman movies were huge.
