Sorry that comic is kinda bad. Its your typical tired "Marvel did that but DC cant". for WW movie the problem is not that. guess what Marvel also didnt make standalone movies for any their big popular female super girls.

The only hero movie with female lead to be a hit was The Hunger games. But that was not a comic book movie and aimed for comic fans old 20 to 40 somthing men. a cbm with female lead even a gigantic name like WW with best actress avalable will still be risky big time.

The issue is not DC but the target viewers for these type of movies.

I really hope that Gadot has it in her to lead a film like Lawrence does with the Hunger Games. I think those films are an example of how popular a solo WW film could be if carried out right. It can't just be a Wrath of the Titans shlocky action fest.

^ That was just an example. Clearly it needs good writing and can't be some T&A fest.

Sure, but it is simply false to imply that WB is somehow more reticent than Marvel in making female-driven superhero movies.

WB did one; Marvel hasn't.

Sometimes the fanboy Marvel > WB stuff is absurd.

I agree with that. People think they're clever with that whole "WB won't make a WW movie and Marvel made one about a talking raccoon" thing, but then ignore the fact that Marvel made a talking raccoon movie before making ANY female led superhero movies besides Electra, which was a ****y spin-off.

Wouldn't that make DC-Marvel 1-for-1 then? Catwoman and Electra. Both just as bad. No wonder the suits at both companies are scared to do another female superhero.

I hope we get a solo WW outing before a Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) flick.

It bothers me how no one said anything when Whedon said a solo Hulk movie is tricky, and Feige basically denied a Black Widow solo movie.

Meanwhile, anything DC says gets picked apart to death.

These would be my (current) preferable choices to star alongside Gal in her own Solo Film:

1. Ryan Golsing as "Steve Trevor"



2. Monica Bellucci OR Cate Blanchett as "Queen Hippolyta"




3. Mark Strong as "Ares"




4. Matt Damon as "Maxwell Lord"




5. Lynn Collins as "Cheetah"

^ I love the Gosling for Steve idea! Normally I get tired of seeing him fan-cast so often, but I don't remember anyone suggesting him for Steve. That would be interesting.

Agreed. I've thought that Gosling would be ideal for the role of "Steve Trevor" for awhile now. And plus, realistically speaking, it would probably be easier to convince him to take on a role like that where he doesn't have to be the titular hero who has to wear some sort of suit, which I think is one of the reasons why he wouldn't want to be in a superhero film.

Plus, he'd probably only to have to appear like in 2 films or so.....which wouldn't be that much of a burden I think.

Honestly, I think in a case like this... Gal is going to need one hell of a major supporting cast in order to help this film work, well that among other things.

I mean it's the same thing like how when Donner first selected his cast for his superman film, which was considered to be a huge risk at that time, especially when CR was a virtual unknown to the film world.

Honestly I hope both companies do their best. The more female superheroes onscreen the better! (and yeah no T&A)
Sorry, can't agree... my super-heroine requirements list just the right amount of T and A. Otherwise we're just watching dudes in tights all over again.

I can smell the weekend coming? is that a nice way of saying Detroit stinks?
I know Mark Twight her trainer said that he was going to have to get "industrial" and "armed" to stay there.

^LOL, the cast and crew will be staying in the suburbs, plus, the business/retail/sporting events area of Detroit is just fine, it's the outskirts that gets dicey........just like most cities.

No need to be "armed" in the wealthy suburbs, like Rochester, where Gadot checked in at, that's a good 45 minute drive from Detroit.....

And besides. It's good for method acting. Portraying a scary city like Gotham? Go film in a real world scary city like Detroit.
