wow, ww fans complaining they want her story to be character driven? no wonder i can´t be bothered with this site any more. by the way the same people would be complaining if they made it action-driven.for my 3-pence the fact that it is clear these guys don´t get the character in the first place is why i don´t really take any of this seriously anyway. hopefully a good movie comes out of this cluster-fuck, but doubt it. the person who said batman begins was character driven - man of steel not I applaud you. coz we all know which was the more well-recieved movie.

Well Man of Steel fared considerably better than Batman Begins at the box office so there's that. Also Man of Steel was for the most part a character-driven film with lots of expensive CGI in it and the reason it didn't resonate with critics and die-hard comic book fans was because Snyder dropped the ball on the storytelling. The sumptuous visuals were the movie's saving grace actually.

Well I think that´s fairly easy to explain isn´t it. Batman´s Begins was the first movie that set this whole superhero movie boom in place. Obviously it wasn´t going to do as well as Man Of Steel. In fact Man Of Steel did that well simply because it was the same team behind the Batman movies. As for Man Of Steel being character-driven, the sad thing is I think you´re right. They were trying to make it character-driven, which just demonstates either how piss poor a director Snyder is, or more likely, how little he gets the Superman character. Just a bad bad bad movie.

The fact he has anything to do with WW who is a very difficult character an even more difficult character to get right than Superman, doesn´t fill me with hope. Honestly I know this is a horrible thing to say, I just hope Batman Vs Superman fails badly and he gets fired. I have no doubt in my mind from what I saw of that trailer that the film is very likely to suck. I just hope if it does people will see the problem isn´t the characters it´s Snyder.

Snyder is a visual genius whose best talent would lay in just straight up adapting classic graphic novels to screen, he should never ever be anything to do with developing a story. Quite frankly he sucks at it and has no idea. Howver if they just got him to straight up direct something like Red Son, or The Dark Knight Returns, I think he make a great movie. Just my opinion, just to show I´m not just hating on the guy.

WW is a cultural icon only because she is a women. A good Flash or GL movie would be better.

Why wouln't a good WW movie be better?. And she isn't iconic for being just a woman. That is like saying Superman is an icon only because he is the first male hero. WW is the standard for female heros. She has influenced the creation of a lot of female characters including big ones such as Xena and Sailor Moon.

That is exactly why he is iconic.

hercules and achilles, may disagree. you mean superhero. and no superman would only have gone so far if he didn´t have certain other iconic elements that captued the imagination. ww is the same. she appealed to women a lot more than other female heroes in the 40s for some reason.

I also don't agree she can play Hippolyta. Hippolyta needs to be at most in her early 50's. She needs to look like she could crack some heads even at her age, but at the same time like a leader and beautiful

I think casting Lucy Lawless as Hippolyta would be a perfect choice, she still looks badass. But casting Lynda Carter would pay homage to the original WW and resonate well with the audience IMO.

I should think people would want a serious actress to play her. No offense to Carter. She was goodat what she did, but it´s time for a new wonder woman. she could play a cameo. I think as some kind of politician against ww would be great. she´s got a look for that. Hippolyta should be 38-42 in my opinion.

@sodamyat: That sounds like the article is saying it´s bad for ww which I would agree with. I´m interested in hearing her take. I just wish they didn´t need these films to fit in with eachother. I don´t really see why WEB/DC are blocking themselves in like this. ww is already difficult to adapt now someone has to stick to what zack snyder has decided to come up with in his "dude. Yeah bro. cool. explosion. explosion. massive setpiece. pow. blam explosion. dude more explosions. shaky cam. whoah, that was so cool, like superman totally punched something explosion, yeah dude." Vision of the DC universe. Any way I´m out, until someone proves why they took one of the most talented directors off this project, i´m done, with B v S.-

@saren: Wow a talking tiger, Maybe I spoke to soon ;) Yeah that would be annoying considering that´s Captain Marvel´s thing. But surely they didn´part ways over a talking tiger. Plus WW could talk to animals. Why can´t anyone seem to get it right?

@nybreezy: I think this is the problem with putting her in batman v superman. the only director they will get now is one there for the paycheck. they won´t want directors with strong vision. they´ll want ones who will be subervient to the bottom line. They should´ve allowed this woman what ever she wants. if she wanted a seperate universe so what. WW deserves her own movie with a director with strong vision. can´t stand the way DC has gone about there movie universe, especially starting with abomination MOS.
