    How about Nicolas Winding Refn, who has shown interest in directing a Wonder Woman movie?

    I think a lot would depend on how Peter Jackson views a superhero movie. I don't know, but I'd like to hear his response to being offered it.

    Yeah, realism from the guy who made a movie about people invading other people's dreams and planting ideas in their minds, all of this orchestrated by "Architects".

    If a Wonder Woman movie is made it needs to be very realistic and take place in the real world, since the modern audience prefers their heroes to be realistic as opposed to unreal and fantastic.

    The number of fantasy films like Harry Potter show fantasy can be entertaining.

    This would be my choice. He's a great director and also actually likes the character and wants to make a WW movie.

    I honestly think Peter Jackson is getting worse with each movie he makes. I haven't seen the Hobbit yet so he might surprise me, but the last few Peter Jackson movies I watched were very disappointing.

    I hope the excesses of the Perez Era (ie; War Of The Gods) and the artistic bankruptcy (Circe stories) that followed it is behind us. I don't want to see the Wonder Woman comic standing in for a Harryhausen film or pretensions to high literature, again. Thee, thou, tho...

    Snore.

    I'm not sure Peter Jackson is the guy to keep Wonder Woman out of the rafters.

    But really, shouldn't it be realistic? I think it should be realistic since realistically speaking, a realistic modern audience would prefer realism as opposed to unrealistic unrealism.

    Some say realistic I say unimaginative that don't like some escapism.

    Agreed. Drive blew me away, although I later learned it was kind of derivative of Travis Bickle's Taxi Driver. Bronson is great too. I think he's also vaguely done mythology stuff in Valhalla Rising, but haven't seen it.

    That's the biggest load of crap I've heard for a while.


    EDIT: Why should realism in a story make it unimaginative? Please do explain this, I want a laugh.

    EDIT II: Does this extend to beyond superhero stories? What about sci-fi? Is the hard sci-fi work of guys like Asimov and Clarke unimaginative in comparison to Star Wars?

    The biggest load of crap I've heard is wanting a Wonder Woman film to be realistic so whatever.

    What? I don't see that. Although I do agree that Drive was a great movie. One definite sign of the Oscars not being quality is that it wasn't nominated for best picture (while junk like "the Help" was), and Albert Brooks wasn't nominated for best supporting, while Jonah Hill got a nod for his boring performance in "Moneyball." Trying to go for the young audience, I think.
