Before he was recruited by Marvel Studios to bring The Avengers to the big screen, Joss Whedon wrote a Wonder Woman script for Warner Brothers in hopes of finally getting DC's bulkiest Amazon into theaters worldwide. Of course, this movie never materialized and audiences were left to stare at the horror of Green Lantern instead. However, Whedon recently went into detail about this failed project in an interview with Rookie, and it seems like he had a pretty solid grasp on the character.
"She was a little bit like Angelina Jolie [laughs]. She sort of traveled the world. She was very powerful and very naïve about people, and the fact that she was a goddess was how I eventually found my in to her humanity and vulnerability, because she would look at us and the way we kill each other and the way we let people starve and the way the world is run and she’d just be like, None of this makes sense to me. I can’t cope with it, I can’t understand, people are insane."
He continued to say, "And ultimately her romance with Steve was about him getting her to see what it’s like not to be a goddess, what it’s like when you are weak, when you do have all these forces controlling you and there’s nothing you can do about it. That was the sort of central concept of the thing. Him teaching her humanity and her saying, OK, great, but we can still do better."
Now this doesn't exactly sound like the most unique premise in the world, being that most superhero movies basically follow this "outsider" formula, but Wonder Woman would have been the only character to do all of this in a pair of booty shorts and a low-cut halter top. What do you think about Whedon's take on the bustiest member of DC's "Holy Trinity"?
