Wonder Woman Rumored to Appear in ‘Batman Vs. Superman’? Is This The Beginning of a Female Super-Hero Renaissance?

Wonder Woman may be making a comeback. A Big Comeback.

There are rumors that Wonder Woman and other female superheroes might be showing up on the big screen.

Wonder Woman might join the fight against evil in director Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel, Batman vs. Superman. Warner Bros is considering featuring Wonder Woman in the upcoming Superman vs Batman movie.

Warner Bros. hasn’t confirmed or denied it. Maybe if we throw a golden lasso around them they will.

At Variety Magazine’s Entertainment and Tech Summit, Greg Silverman, President of creative development at Warner Bros, said "We have been doing a lot of thinking for years about how to best use all those characters and we love them. Wonder Woman is an amazing character. I think it's a great opportunity both for box office success, but also to have an amazingly powerful female superhero. We are taking it all very seriously and are trying to do a plan that's respectful to those characters and maximizes the stories as best they can. So everything that has been speculated are things that we've thought about."

When pressed, Greg Silverman, changed the subject to the always distracting talk about Ben Affleck’s role as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel.

Silverman said “We knew what the take of the movie was, we knew what the character was going to be. We don’t take these decisions lightly. We thought about everybody — brand new people, established people. Ben is the perfect guy to play this role.”

Wonder Woman might be waiting in the wings. Batman vs. Superman producers are playing it very close to the vest with the Man of Steel sequel. They’ve thrown up some footage of a Metropolis football game, but other than that, nothing. Well, except the Ben Affleck casting.

Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman on TV from 1975 until 1979, suggested that Warner Bros assign a female screenwriter to write for Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman has not made a live action appearance on screen since "Wonder Woman" was cancelled in 1979.

George Miller's "Justice League" has been trying to bring Wonder Woman and the rest of the DC Comics big names to the big screen to work in parallel with the "Dark Knight" films. Another attempt to bring Wonder Woman back to the small screen under "Ally McBeal" creator David Kelly fell through

Fans want to see Wonder Woman on TV. So does Joss Whedon. CW tried, but it didn’t work out.

Forgetting all about the seventies “Wonder Woman” series, Joss Whedon told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year “I don’t think she lends herself to television. I think she only works on an epic scale. I saw a bit of the David E. Kelley [pilot]. That was not a good marriage.”
