Default 1941-2016: 75 Years of Wonder Woman

As DC has unveiled their plans to celebrate Batman's 75 years of his remarkable legacy (with Superman's 75th year celebrated in 2013), I wanted to start a discussion on what we hope to see for the 75th Anniversary of WONDER WOMAN in 2016!!

-December 1941 marked the first comic book appearance of Wonder Woman in the issue of All Star Comics #8 (then appearing on the cover of Sensation Comics #1 in January 1942).

-75 years later on May 6, 2016 we will see Wonder Woman in her first feature film incarnation played by Gal Gadot in the Man of Steel sequel.


How do you think DC Comics and Warner Brothers Entertainment will mark this iconic milestone?

Looking at the plans they have for Batman, I would assume there will be a similar approach for Wonder Woman. Here are the areas you can share your thoughts and ideas:

LOGO ideas
?Share your creative manip ideas here

DC Comics
?All-Star Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman day
?Comic retailers offering fans a free special edition Wonder Woman comic book

Interactive Gaming
?Injustice: Gods Among Us 2
?A game produced by Rocksteady Studios

Home Video
?The original series starring Lynda Carter released on blu-ray

Animation
?Will the in-continuity Justice League animated movie feature a story line about the Amazon Princess

Television
?An 'Arrow' appearance (if the show is part of the cinematic universe)
?Commercials

Feature Film
?Gal Gadot...nuff said!!!

Consumer Products
?From collectible toys to t-shirts

Wonder Woman is the first lady of comics and the most recognizable superheroine on the planet!!

I can't believe it took 75 years for Wonder Woman to appear in a movie.

And Aquaman is no where to be found

Seriously, what is with WB?

"I can't take a risk on these properties because of films we made that were bad with hired guns instead of strong independent minds."

"But what about Nolan?"

"We made a mistake. A good one. Let's hope we make the same one for Justice League."

"Nah, let's not make that kind of mistake. Liebsman for Justice League."

Well it is very possible that DC and WB will celebrate Aquaman's 75 years as well in 2016 (he premiered in More Fun Comics #73 in November 1941). In 2015 we have both the first appearances of Green Lantern (All-American Comics #16 in July 1940) and Flash (Flash Comics #1 in January 1940) marking their 75 years...go DC!!

It really seems like a missed opportunity for BVS to not be a Justice League film.

Then during production they could release images of Batman/Green Lantern/Flash on their anniversarry and the film comes out for Aquaman and Wonder Woman's.

You seem to overlook the fact that WW was set to appear in George Miller's Justice League Mortal, before the entire project was scrapped as Nolan and Singer both were not in favor of a shared universe, they wanted solo movies for Batman and Superman.

After that WB had hired none other than Joss Whedon who was set to write and direct a WW movie years ago..he took two years and produced a script that did not go well with WB execs and DC.



Then they hired David E. Kelley for a WW TV series, but his pilot episode was not good, so the network did not order it.

Wonder Woman: Greatest Super-Heroine Ever?

Quote:
At the same time, though, there’s something a little depressing about the extent to which that love seems unearned. Whatever you think of the original Wonder Woman stories (and, again, I like them a lot more than Hanley does), at this point she isn’t much more than a corporate marketing icon and, perhaps, a nostalgia-tinged memory of a mediocre television show. “She isn’t a great character despite her contradictions, but because of them,” Hanley declares in his conclusion — but the vast bulk of his book actually suggests that she isn’t an especially great character at all, if “great character” means appearing in worthwhile stories or even appealing to large numbers of people. Love can elevate pop culture detritus, but it seems like the bland logic of marketing and pop culture legacy memes can wash out passion as well. ”Wonder Woman Unbound” demonstrates how much an engaged author can do with indifferent material. But it also made me wish that we’d demand more from the icons to which we grant our affection.
I have to agree with this article, Wonder Woman strikes me as being an icon on the basis that she's an icon. I don't actually get the love for the character, where she is implied as the ultimate of female superheroines. It's some sort of travesty that WB has not yet done a WW movie (they've actually already done supergirl and catwoman). I do see art for WW in all sorts of places though. I walked into a hipster paintstore a while back, and there was a Wonder Woman painting for $300. In a bar I frequent, the men's room has a painting of Lex Luthor, and the ladies' room a painting of Wonder Woman. My cousin dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween ... so I guess the public cares.

Just from American comic books, I'd be more interested in seeing movies for the Supergirl and Hawkgirl. Diana wasn't interesting in JLU, then again neither were Clark or Bruce... admittedly the rule of thumb for the JL cartoons is that the most famous characters were the least interesting... "The Question" was the most fun character on the show. Aside from that, I'm more excited for Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch than I am for Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, in spite of being a DC fan.

Growing up in the 1980s and 1990s, Buffy Summers, Alex Mack, and Sailor Moon were the most interesting female heroines on TV. I expect that none of them will ever get a movie.

Honestly... Yeah. Wonder Woman is pop art iconography these days. And that's it. People recognize her. That's it. I guarantee 999/1000 people could not tell you her origin if you asked.

Even weirder is most writers/artists that have worked on her in the last 74 years really didn't even get the character and what William Marston was doing. So they just sanitized her into a female Superman. Even worse is what she's become now to differentiate her again. It must say something about our culture these days when a character that in her inception was this ambassador for love and compassion and alternative sexuality (oh my god how scary for so many people here) has now become the GOD OF WAR.

The general public's knowledge of the character will be updated in 2016 though. It's really on Zack Snyder to decide how he will represent the character for most people in the world. I hope he does his research thoroughly. But I'm willing to bet we'll get a sword-swinging, killing Xena (which strangely enough will please alot of feminists here).

It's important to note this is the truth of pretty much every superhero save for Superman, Batman and Spider Man, maybe another one or two there.

Her caretakers have repeatedly lost sight of what made the character so popular in the first place. Now, she's a Xena wanabe who's constantly getting revamped in the comics.

Like Superman, she's done a complete 180 from her original characterization, and is suffering for it. Contrast this with Batman, who deep down is still the character Bill Finger and Bob Kane created, and is more popular than ever.

Fortunately, Grant Morrison is trying to modernize the original Marston concept in his Wonder Woman: Earth One book.

Holy crap, man, that is one profound analysis. I love how you contextualize the current characterization of Wonder Woman with the contemporary glorification of the military (at least that's how I interpret your argument).

You're probably right. Honestly, I expect the portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 2016 film to echo her characterization in Justice League: War. That is, she will be Generic Badass Warrior Woman -- since that is both the most marketable interpretation, the most obvious for male screenwriters, and the one that will demand the least from a relatively unseasoned actress like Gadot.

I don't expect much. A new comic book written by a good writer would be great.

DC Comics
Well I mean maybe Scott Snyder could do something. He's doing Eternal for Batman and did Unchained for Superman.

Animation
Probably a Justice League centered Wonder Woman film like how Flashpoint was centered around Flash

That's all I got. Wonder why they are doing for Dick Grayson's 75th which is next year. It's also Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, and Two-Face's 75th next year.

Hopefully a solo WW is secretly in development for release later in 2016 (December?) It would make so much sense if WB was filming a bunch of their DC movies at the same time. A man can hope at least.

I would really hope that WB/DC would have plans for a solo WONDER WOMAN animated program. I think all the DCU Trinity would be due a new solo show by 2016, especially Superman and Wonder Woman.

I'd like to see all of your list OP. But this is WB/DC we are more likely to see another Cat Woman movie. I find it incredible that Cat woman has had much more exposure on the silver screen.

In terms of Wonder Woman's celebration in 2016, I hope to see DC/WB capitalizing on her mass universal appeal:

LOGO DESIGN:



TELEVISION ANIMATION:
How about a series based on the style and look of the Golden Age of Wonder Woman.



EXHIBITS:
Museum exhibit and tour focusing on the growing importance of superheroes in modern times.


A wax figure in their 'Heroes: Icons and Legends' section.

(Image is from my own personal WW collection)


COLLECTIBLES:
Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys producing statues/figures with Gal Gadot's likeness and the 'new' look of Wonder Woman
Man of Steel 2: Wonder Woman 1:6 scale figure


Man of Steel 2: Wonder Woman 21" premiere format statue



FASHION:
Inspiring collections by designers celebrating fashion and fearlessness. Wonder Woman is polished, refined, bad ass and a role model to top designers such as DVF (Diane von Furstenberg), Balenciaga and Tom Ford would turn to her in 2016 for the right look for their Fall collection.




COSMETICS
MAC Cosmetics releasing a 2nd line of make-up to accent female empowerment.



JEWELRY
A jewelry line for the modern superheroine!
