Joss Whedon on Wonder Woman
Source: ifMagazine.com
May 3, 2006
ifMagazine.com talked to Joss Whedon at the Saturn Awards on Tuesday and he gave an update on his Wonder Woman feature:
"It's sort of shifting under me," says Whedon. "I'm doing more rewriting on this than I am used to. Finding her was fun, and finding the structure of the film was incredibly difficult and fun. I am not bringing in any villains that anyone knows. I will not be bringing in any of the rogues gallery from the comic book. The villain is original to the film."


I'm really interested in hat he has planned, hopefully it won't turn into a whole disaster. I still believe he could've found some way to establish some of Wonder Woman's known villains from the comics, the big screen. If not, perhaps an extended cameo.
 
This is going to be an origin tale, correct?

Whats with DC movies and its fear of Rogues Galleries? At least the Schumacher had some balls to use the gallery unlike the other Superman films.

Yeah, I was really surprised when Whedon wanted to do his own villain too. While I don't question his creativity, how hard would it have been to adapt an existing villain?
 
This sucks. I was looking forward to see WW fight Aries or Cheetah. They better be in the sequal.(If there is one.)
 
I hope the villain is "Greek" in nature, like Medusa or something.
 
Who is in Wonder Woman's Rogue's Gallery?

Ares, Cheetah, Herakles...anyone else?
 
In previous interviews, Whedon has said that he will make his new villain using Greek mythology. I'm still wondering why he feels the need to do this when there's already Ares.
 
Yeah. Ares seems like a villain Whedon would write. Violent, maipulative, and self centered, but oddly human and caring at times aswell.

There is also Giganta, Dr. Psycho, Silver Swan and Dr. Poison.

Thanks Overlord. Don't know much about WW, outside of the old TV show, the Artemis-storyline, and JLU cartoon. I'm glad to know that she has a rogue's gallery that at least sounds like it might be deadly.
 
Dr. Psycho kicks ass, man. Basically, he's a chauvanistic rapist and serial killer with psychic powers. He violates the mind aswell as the body. One ****ed up individual. He goes after Wonder Woman because she represents feminism and woman power and all that stuff that Psycho despises.
 
Dr. Pyshco is the man your right, however Im not a fan of the whole female superhero thing. Women=Damsel in Distress!!!

Dr.Psycho and Black Manta = Two kick ass villians wasted on unimportant heroes!!!!

That is incredibly sexist. The whole point of Wonder Woman is that a woman can kick just as much ass as anyone else. In fact, that was the whole idea behind the Amazons of ancient times in the first place. And, it's also true.

So, you're knocking Aquaman too. Hell, Aquaman and Wonder Woman are the badasses of the Justice League. Batman seems that way, but he lacks any real ability to follow up on the badassery against the foes the League fights. Wonder Woman and Aquaman, however, are fully capable of laying the hurt on the likes of Despero and Mongul.
 
Well it may be sexist but it's true, no one other than pure fans of Wonder Woman or any other female hero truly give a damn!!!!! I stand by my statement!!

Still continuing the fight, huh? Needless to say, I disagree.

No, it's not.

Most people do give a damn.

You're telling me that Batman would actually stand a chance in a fight with Despero. That he could actually hurt Despero. The guy who took on Aquaman and Martian Manhunter at the same time. The guy who's nearly killed the entire league dozens of times over. My god. Do you have any idea how ridiculous that sounds?
 
Yes I two am mocking Aquaman......

How Aquaman recieves ANYTHING over The Flash and Green Lantern is beyond me!!!!!

What do you mean? What has he received "over" GL and Flash? All three have solo books, all three are usual members of the League, and all three have some great villains.

Not anymore ridiculous than Lex Luthor posing a threat to the entire League or Dr. Doom posing a threat to the entire Marvel Universe, including Galactus. And, yeah, I know you will say that there's no comparison between Batman and these two supervillains, but I say that they are at least (and that's being conservative) in the same field of capacity. But let's not get into the debate here...

I'm really rooting for WonderWoman to be an excellent film. It certainly has potential; I want all of The Big Three to have excellent films.

Please. Lets.


Lex and Doom are different. First off, Doom's never posed a threat to the entire Marvel Universe. Only groups of the Marvel Universe. And here's a little thing about Lex being a threat to the League. He had help. He brought together extremely powerful criminals to do the actual work for him. He just drew out the plans. That's very different from Batman taking on the likes of Despero and Mongul on his own.
 
Damn. I wanted to see Circe. Oh well. Let's hope the villain is a Nazi.
 
.....you know what, Grey? I'm sorry. I take this stuff way to seriously. Just ignore my last post.

Your statement is wrong and outdated, not to mention offensive and rude.

I would rather see Circe as a villian if the idea of having a sequel arises, after this one.

Agreed.
