Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing at Warner Bros, suggested that the
studio are hopeful of a Wonder Woman film after Justice League: “with
the right script”, she said, “that could be viable. The world is
ready for her.”
The new Wonder Woman film would be Warner Bros’ second attempt after a 2005
project with Buffy writer Josh Whedon behind the screenplay. It never
happened, for reasons
even Whedon wasn’t sure of.
Warner Bros have struggled to launch films based on DC Comics characters in
the past. In 2008 the studio scrapped a Justice League film. It was due to
star DJ Corona as Superman and Armie Hammer as Batman, but they, and other
actors striked along with the project’s writers. In 2011 the studio brought
out Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds, which flopped at the box office
and received poor reviews.
