Could be. Just figured I might as well share it just the same. I hope it turns out to be true though.

It won't be Wonder Women.

#6 Posted by JLDoom (2310 posts) - - Show Bio

God, I hope it's not Wonder Woman. I mean I love Diana as much as the next guy but this movie has enough stuff to deal with introducing Batman and most likely Lex Luthor as well.

@jldoom: Dude, it's Snyder. That guy is utterly undaunted by things that other filmmakers won't even touch in fear of failure.

They´ll f**k it up. I hope it´s not true. I don´t want Goyer/snyder anywhere near wonder woman.

Supergirl makes no sense, she's a supporting character. Wonder Woman is an icon. She has the gravitas to stand with Superman and Batman and complete the Trinity.

^I don't know why. But I always find myself disagreeing with most of the things that woman says.

@jphulk26: Clever job swearing at a mod. Especially one that has a limited 3 strikes and you're out policy on serious offences. But you do have a record of not so site friendly behaviour.

I hope its not WW, she needs to appear in her own movie first.

@jphulk26: You realize I can see the original unedited post in my inbox, right? Final warning.

@rustyroy: A cameo would get the audience interested and by the time she gets her own movie or appears in the JL one, people would have a better idea of who she is. Shes iconic, not popular, so you need get her some exposure before you reveal her.

@toplel: I think she's too big a name for a cameo appearance, I'd rather have a MM cameo. Maybe a mention of the Amazons would be cool like how they showed the Wayne Enterprise logo in MoS.

@rustyroy: Not really. People know Wonder Woman, but they don't really know her. Have her make a kickass cameo and people will start asking questions and by the time the next movie comes out they'll be hyped.

suuuure. martian manhunter and snapper carr is gonna be in it too. along with darkseid.

@toplel: Well I don't agree, she's far more popular than Iron Man was before her movie, Batman and Superman never needed a cameo in someone else's movies, a cameo won't do her justice.

@rustyroy: Well, RDJ had star power. A dude in a cool looking robotic suit with lasers and sh*t is probably more appealing to someone who doesn't read comics. Most people know WW as a woman in a star spangled one piece. A mystical character isn't more interesting than a sci-fi character to most people, so they have to try harder with Diana than Marvel had to with Iron Man. A lot of people went gaga over Faora from MoS because she looked good and kicked a little ass. They can do so much more with WW. A simple yet effective cameo will make people curious and only serve to bring her into the spotlight more gradually.

@toplel: What about Thor, Hemsworth didn't have star power and Thor isn't as popular as WW, even Norse mythology aren't as popular as Greek Myrhology, it still did great. I don't want a big character like WW's debut to be a cameo, that's all, just like I don't like the idea of Flash debuting in Arrow, I don't mind lesser known characters to make a cameo in movies and TV series though.

#29 Posted by toplel (917 posts) - - Show Bio

@rustyroy: Compared to Iron Man, Thor didn't do as well in terms of money and popularity. And WW isn't as big as you think she is, though she could be, if WB plays their cards right. I get your point though, and a hint at Amazons or her in particular would be pretty cool too.

@toplel:she is popular,more popular than any other female character in comic and many males,and she has had successful runs like perez,ruka and simone,she has had a hit live action show,and a hit animated movie,so with more exposure properly made she can return to be as successful as she was and even more.

@gokuwarrior: How many people on the street actually know who Perez, Rucka or Simone are? How many of them do you think read comics and even if you were to force them to pick one up, do you think they would actually pick her over Batman or Iron Man? The TV series is over 30 years old and the animated film, though great, wasn't really that big. Like I said, iconic, but not popular.

This little strip explains my point pretty clearly.

#33 Posted by TAneT62 (1060 posts) - - Show Bio

She's both, everyone knows who she is, and she didn't need the exposure of Superman and Batman to achieve that.

She deserves more than a small cameo, she needs her own film before they even decide to make a JL film.

oh yes she is popular,yes many people know perez,ruka and simone,yes her animated film was successful,comparing her to batman and iron-man doesn't mean she is not popular,batman and ironman sell more than most characters,but it doesn't mean other characters are flops,madonna has sold 340 m records and mariah carey 208 m,so you would say she isn't popular because she has sold less than madonna?,no it doesn't work like that,yes batman and ironman are more popular,but it doesn't mean she ins't popular too,she is,she is still the best selling female comic character of all time,like it or not.

@gokuwarrior: Really? Batgirl is selling more than WW right now, and that title is pretty craptastic compared to Azz's WW. I just don't want what happened to GL happening to WW so I'd rather WB be careful on how they introduce her.

really?,well glad that there is a whole market outside the US,because batgirl isn't outselling WW,and as i said,comparing her to other characters that sell more doesn't mean she isn't popular,it only means she isn't as popular as them,there is a different,batman is the best seller in comic,he sells more than everyone else,doesn't mean the others aren't popular,they just aren't as popular as he is.

and about movies,don't get high expections,action movies and TV series with females in the lead role have a bad track record,dark angel,birds of prey,elektra,catwoman,super girl,etc,etc,only successful action profects with females are resident evil,kill bill,alien,and on TV buffy,xena and well wonder woman with her 70s show,this is the ultimate proof that hollywood doesn't know how to work with females as the main characters,we only have few exceptions that confirm the rule.

@gokuwarrior: Batgirl is outselling WW, actually. And your last point is why I'm hesitant about WB making a WW movie. They need to do it right because if they repeat the GL mess, shes done for a long time. A cameo near the end could work to get people talking about her in time for her actual appearance in whatever the next movie is.

A cameo doesn't mean much, especially if it's a Wonder Woman cameo.

if it is for Wonder Woman then I wouldn't expect much beyond an after credits scene or a slight cameo

what do you want it to mean? I'm not sure how I can be much more clear but I'll try....I'm saying that I doubt that she would have any major role in the film, it is Batman vs Superman and not Batman vs. Superman vs. Wonder Woman after all....I wouldn't expect much beyond an after credits scene or a slight cameo

Curious about? They don't need curiosity, they'll get more than enough in her own film. The only thing that a cameo will do is give her a slight push, after time, it'll mean nothing.

@tanet62: I'm getting the feeling you're assuming I just want her making a cameo instead of her own movie. A cameo will have people look up what Wonder Woman's deal is and by the time the movie comes out they'll be somewhat familiar with who she is. And she needs all the push she can get.

WW is ouselling batgirl worldwide.

Are you referring to their books or merchandize? If its books, then that is good news.

I'm not assuming, I'm just fed up that a cameo is all she's going to get, she may not even get a cameo or a solo film.

Thor made 450 mils, like only 100 mil less than IM, WW could do much more than Thor. Greek movies tend to do very well in BO, and yeah a hint of Amazons would be nice, I just think WW should appear in her own movie before appearing in someone else's movie, I can see why Batman doesn't need an origin movie and can be already established as a seasoned hero but WW needs an origin movie.
