5'2 is just too short it has nothing to do with some imaginary height issue you think i have

WW is an amazon warrior

it is the equivalent of casting a 5'5 superman or Thor

you can have all the acting in the world but you have to resemble the respective character's physical attributes

it is as simple as that

I like a lot of Whedon's stuff I'd even say I'm a fan but a lot of his ideas for WW were just not good at all. I'm actually really glad that his WW project never took off.

He had no intentions of keeping her iconic look in any way and wanted her to be catty towards Steve Trevor at first and give him **** all over the place. Like a lot of other cliche "ooh he was such a jerk but now I think I love him" romances seen on screen before. There is a greater appeal to Diana falling in love with the guy pretty damn instantaneously like in the books IMO.

He wanted her to not really have any understanding and compassion towards humanity at all. She has to learn that through Steve which is just a giant WTF. Instead of learning how to deflect projectiles with the bracelets on Themiscyra he thought it'd be more interesting if she took some bullets to the chest and then pulled them back out. Ares? Circe? nope he had no interest in her rogues gallery at all either. He wanted to create brand new villains just because.

I'll give him this much; he at least wanted her to arrive to man's world as an ambassador of Themiscyra. Still overall a lot of his ideas were just not good when you look at it from the perspective of a fan of the comics. Much better could be done with more fidelity to the source material. To his credit he has admitted that he just doesn't get DC characters much at all like he does with the Marvel ones. I'd definitely agree with that.

Yeah those don't sound that good. If I remember correctly Nicolas Winding Refn wants to make his own villains too.

I'm sure that if WB/DC gave him more direcion most of those problems would have been fixed but he's said before that their faith in the project was lackluster at best. DC needs to take it's properties more seriously. Chis Nolans don't fall out of the sky every day.

Well DC does as proven by them doing what had to be done to bring relevance to their non-Batman or Green Lantern icons with the New 52 recently. WB on the other hand is a different story and it's not like DC could do anything about it cause at the end of the day they need their parent companies wallet to get any adaptations off the ground in the first place.

If they were to use Ares for a WW film, how would you like for him to be written?

I fear if they ever try and put him on screen fans will be disappointed.

They'll either "Smallville" it with some guy in a business suit and dead eyes like the comics or do a bad job making a manageable version of the Perez armor that an actor can actually move in for a fight. And his helmet will be off for most of the battle so we can see the actor's face.

The way I always pictured Ares was like Darth Vader, or Sauron when he is shown in the flashback. Big demonic character in armor who's face is never seen.

Yeah, kind of like of his look in Hercules The Legendary Journeys. (The late and great) Kevin Smith played him in human form, but there was an episode where he turned out to be this huge giant shadowy, armoured, firey creature.

I dont really care how often Ares would wear his helmet as stuff. He can keep it on for a bit and get it knocked off in battle

Yeah that wouldn't bother me. The excellent animated movie had an Ares that was similar to his later non-armored comic look and still worked just fine cause he effectively worked as the antithesis to WW (war vs. love) as he should.

He's one of her most iconic rogues going all the way back to the golden age; so I wouldn't exactly bet against them ever using him in a WW film.

Ares is her father now? I thought Zeus was? Is Donna Troy in DCnU?

Yeah Zeus is. Ares would actually be her sibling now but he hasn't even been reintroduced in the new continuity yet. No Donna is not in the DCnU.

The dynamic is too good to pass up though. WW fighting against her brother, the God of War.

But I bet people will start comparing to Thor, the whole sibling rivalry thing.
