Maybe Lightning'll Strike Twice?

Like Mizzelle, I'm still processing this.
Wonder Woman is heading back to the screen but instead of flying to movie theatres, the Amazon princess is returning to television.

Warner Bros. Television is developing a modern-day reboot of the classic DC comic book heroine and is lassoing an unlikely talent to potentially write and produce the superhero project: David E. Kelley, the showrunner behind legal dramas such as “Ally McBeal,” "Boston Legal" and "The Practice."

The development comes after nearly a decade of attempts by Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver to launch a big-screen version. Actresses ranging from Angelina Jolie to Beyonce Knowles to Megan Fox have thrown their hat in the ring for the starring role at one time or another.

It'll be damned hard to recapture the charm of Lynda Carter and Kelley's responsible for the Ally MacBeal atrocity, but... Wonder Woman TV Show. The horrible deaging and new costume are probably to set the stage for this, but... Wonder Woman TV Show. They're probably going to screw up the casting, but... Wonder Woman TV Show. They're almost guaranteed to screw up her religion, but... Wonder Woman TV Show.

It could be the Smallville of the Wonder Woman mythos, but it's a Wonder Woman TV Show. I'm there.


  1. Hey, Ally McBeal was pretty good for about a year there... it was just a Dawson's Creek-ish, "I only have one season's worth of ideas but a long-term contract" thing.

  2. They need to cast Bridget Regan. She is perfect for Wonder Woman.

  3. Now if they could just get JMS to write it... and give the comic back to someone who knows how to write Wonder Woman.

  4. It would be awesome if Shatner made a guest appearance.

  5. Alessandra Toressani (the First Cylcon Caprica actress) is supposed to be hoping for this role.

  6. Hey, I like Smallville. I would be HAPPY with a Wonder Woman version of Smallville.
