For the sake of more hot babes in costume, please make a Wonder Woman movie
Whenever a comic book movie opens, I'm intrigued by the fans in costumes. Superhero movies, such as Iron Man 2, are great. Opening night is like Comic Con. The best eye candies are women dressed up as superheroes. Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Black Cat, Supergirl, etc.
That's fine by me. Hot babes want to be seen in their sexy superhero costume. And guys just want to see hot babes.
Of the top echelon female superheroes, Wonder Woman is the one who stands out in my book. Why? Because burned in my head is an image of Lynda Carter in her Wonder Woman costume.
A real life super sexy babe in a comic book superhero outfit. Someone as hot as Lynda Carter in Wonder Woman costume fulfills the fantasies of many pre-pubescent boys.
But then again, just eyeing the fanbase of a comic book convention, any sexy babe in a women's superhero costume also fulfills the fantasy of adult males.

Which comes to the point of this hub. Please, someone make a Wonder
Woman movie already! There are so many comic book movies being made.
And so many TV series from the 70s, 80s, and 90s that are being adapted
to the big screen. Wonder Woman is both.
Comic book fans love her. And moviegoers want to see her.
Wonder Woman fanbase has been teased every year. Rumors and bad news are all we have so far. The best information available is a targetted Wonder Woman movie release for 2011. DC/Warner and Silver Pictures are in charge.
Which actress should play Wonder Woman?
Among the most fevered speculation are the actresses. Who should play Wonder Woman?
Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia
Chase in Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series) and Jaime King (Goldie in Sin City) have had their names in
rumorville. The same goes for Morena Baccarin (Anna from V).
And recently, Bridget Regan (Kahlan Amnell from Legend
of the Seeker) was the frontrunner from a MTV online poll.
Not a bad selection, but we still do not have a Wonder Woman.
Of course, there was the big one. Geek-favorite TV/movie producer, Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse) was slated to direct at one time. But the Joss Wheadon project on Wonder Woman is no longer in the works. Quite a downer.
With the success of Iron Man, Batman, and Spider-Man as theatrical series, perhaps DC / Warner will find a way to give us a Wonder Woman movie.
Adrianne Palicki is the new Wonder Woman
UPDATE -- February 2011
A new Wonder Woman has been cast for a TV series. Princess Diana will be played by Adrianne Palicki for David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman. I remember seeing Adrianne Pallicki in Legion and Supernatural. She's also starred in Friday Night Lights and Lone Star. Best of all, she voiced Padme Amidala in one ofRobot Chicken's Star Wars parody. Ms. Palicki is not a complete unknown, but definitely upcoming. Great break for her. Let's wish her luck.
This Wonder Woman project is spear-headed by David E. Kelley. Known for exec producing Ally McBeal, The Practice, and other shows, David Kelley has several Emmy awards under his belt. So I'm not worried about this show from the production end.
I think the weak link is in this project is NBC. As of late, they managed to screw up remakes of past classics such as Bionic Woman and Knight Rider. They also botched potentially long running series such as Heroes. They may have another loser in the making with The Cape. I stopped watching this show after the third week because it is uninteresting. The Event looks ok but not mind-blowing likeHeroes Season 1. And oh yeah, there's the Jay Leno / Conan O'Brien fiasco.
So for Wonder Woman, I'm still crossing my fingers.
