Despite many attempts, Warner Bros. has yet to get a 'Wonder Woman' movie made. Marvel has made a movie featuring a talking raccoon with a machine gun before Warner Bros. has been able to figure out how to get 'Wonder Woman' - their third most well-known superhero property - made. It's something that hasn't been lost of comic fans and now Warner Bros. is admitting publicly the lack of a 'Wonder Woman' movie has been a "missed opportunity" and that they "need" to adapt 'Wonder Woman' as soon as possible.
While Warner Bros. can't seem to get a 'Wonder Woman' movie off the ground (despite a script once written by current Marvel godfather Joss Whedon, himself), some fans have taken matters into their own hands. Sam Balcomb spent the majority of 2013 creating this 'Wonder Woman' fan trailer, hoping to show Hollywood that it can, and should, be done.
Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, even the Guardians of the Galaxy -- all of these superheroes have gotten their own films, but where is Wonder Woman? A character arguably just as iconic as her male peers, Wonder Woman has seemingly been left in the dust. How is it that we live in a world where a superhero movie with an animated, talking, gun-firing raccoon is more believable and relatable than a female superhero? What is wrong with everyone?
With the arrival of 'Man of Steel' in theaters this weekend comes the next major superhero franchise, as well as the first legitimate step toward an eventual 'Justice League' movie. So are we soon going to see different DC Comics characters make their way to the big screen? Indications are yes, but how soon?
While The CW has begun setting its fall schedule and issuing trailers for its 2013-14 offerings, many were left wondering whatever became of the network's Wonder Woman reboot pilot 'Amazon,' which last we heard had begun casting and working on the script. CW executives assure that the pilot remains in development for a future season, but could prove one of the "trickiest" properties they've had to work with. Find out about Wonder Woman's TV future inside!

Once it became apparent that The CW's 'Arrow' would prove a big success for the network, DC comics fans were excited to hear that The CW might look to capitalize on the good will by developing a unique Wonder Woman TV series titled 'Amazon,' focusing on the younger days of titular hero Princess Diana. The CW brass seemed optimistic that the project would move forward, but now the drama has been left off the network's list of pilot pick-ups for the season. Is 'Amazon' dead in the water?
Justice League, assemble! Well, it has... allegedly. While a report came out not too long ago revealing which comic book heroes would be joining the team for its big-screen debut, a new more up-to-date one has come out naming the key players who will go up against 'The Avengers 2' for box office dominance. And one new name has been added into the mix, as well!
Though we've yet to hear very much concrete information, even after an update from The CW at their TCA press tour panel, 'Amazon' remains a hot-button pilot of which fanboys are eager to hear. Following the success of The CW's 'Arrow,' the network has continued developing their 'Smallville'-meets-Wonder Woman pilot, most importantly casting the iconic Amazonian princess, but who could take the role? Does The CW have an early frontrunner in 'Being Human' star Amy Manson?
