She looks fantastic! I stated in another post that I dont think Wonder Woman would succeed in her own movie. It's never the hero that sells a movie but the villain. Wonder Woman doe not have a great villain that would transfer well to the big screen.

Fake but really really convincing. I think DC needs to look at these pics and use these ideas.

I'm a Hollywood exec, I have never heard of Wonder Woman, never read a comic book in my life and somebody tells me I should make a movie about some Xena clone based on those pictures ???

you realize of course that Xena first appeared in the 1990s where as Wonder Woman in 1941, correct?

Also, not to be mean, but if you have never read a comic book in your life, why are you on Comic Vine? I'm just curious...

@kapitein_zeppos: You're a member of a comic website but you've never read a comic book?... Um, why is that?

@The Poet@divingfalcon713: I don't think he is really saying that he is an exec but saying it in a way to put you inside an execs head. 
Never the less being I find it ridicules that someone hasn't heard of Wonder Woman just because they haven't read a comic book before. She isn't just some random character.

A Xena clone? it's quite the opposite if you ask me ... WW came out in 1941, Xena in the 1990s and yet you refer her to a clone? LOL. Hollywood exuctive huh, well i don't believe it for starters and if you were a hollywood exec you would have heard of WW. And don't attempt to make a WW movie, we don't need another "Clone" in the failed relaunch of WW in 2011.

Folks, I was talking figuratively, but when I see all those redesigns, I keep seeing a kind of brightly painted Xena and stuff like that makes it much harder to sell to Hollywood as they would just assume it's a clone, they don't give a crap about who was first or whatever, they may know Xena had a big tv presence a decade ago and at best may be vaguely aware there was a series back in the dark ages involving Wonder Woman. But since both Xena and WW were heavily camped up, you're facing a major uphill struggle. Ask any random person on the street about Wonder Woman and they will probably be able to condense here into a kind of Xena meets superman, wears a bathing suit and ... erm ... erm ... I bet most people can't even give you one WW villain whereas everybody heard of Joker or Lex Luthor.

Most of the people here are comic book fans and have lots more knowledge of the subject than the average Joe or Betty. But you may as well ask the name of any of the Marshals of Napoleon, they are famous to everybody except the general public. See the recent John Carter film, the books are the cornerstone of modern Science Fiction and Fantasy stories, everybody borrowed from these stories and while John Carter and Dejah Thoris are legendary among fans of the genre, the general public collectively went "huh ?" and figured it was just a big Attack of the Clones ripoff.

BTW, here a very nice cosplay of the photos above, gives you an idea what it may look like on screen. (And it STILL looks better than the failed pilot's costume) http://superherophotography.co.uk/wonder-woman/

You should just do some research on the charaters if he or she peaks your interest,thats the only suggestion I could give you,based on the facts that you don't have any comic book knowledge. That being being said you can always wiki a character such as Wonder Woman to get a quick run of her history.

Wonder Woman does have good villains. The god of war himself, Ares. If you think that doesn't translate well to a big screen then have a look at the movie Thor.

I'm not saying it's an easy task but if we're talking about the camp issue then in the sixties and afterwards all the way to the late 80's Batman's image was tied to the Adam West tv-series. Then Burton's Batman came along and changed the public concensus. Christopher Nolan changed it again with Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. The campness should not be an issue especially after Thor.

The fact Wonder Woman is known one way or the other is a huge plus on her side. Practically everyone knows her visual image! It should be easy to market in a movie! Nobody outside of comics knew who Thor or Iron Man were before their movies came along. If people think the movie is a Xena clone...well Xena was good so they'll go see it! Then when people have seen it they know Wonder Woman and if the movie was good you got a new franchise right there. You got an already iconic character possibly even getting another golden age in terms of public knowledge and popularity.

Everybody's heard of Wonder Woman's main villain (they just don't connect him to WW). It's Ares! You don't get more perfect villain. The concept is already a part of pop culture and being a god of war sets the stakes high and tells everything we need to know about the character. At least for movie execs.

It's funny, people don't know enough about Wonder Woman to realize they DO KNOW quite a lot about Wonder Woman because it's HEAVILY BASED on Greek Mythology. Clash/Wrath of the Titans, Immortals, 300 etc. show that there's a market for those kinds of mythic tales.

If the problem is the fact there will be a female lead (box office poison) then (try) hire Angelina Jolie. While not my WW canditate she can at least pull off the look and the action. If you're still not convinced or can't get Angelina Jolie then take a look at the Twilight films and Hunger Games (the fact there's a female lead and the box office). Again, I'm thinking this the way movie execs would think, not what would actually make a good movie. :D
