So, Charisma Carpenter is after the role bad. More interesting, in a recent TV Guide interview, she alluded that she and Whedon have talked to Warner Bros. about it as well.

I'm not a fan of her for the role, but I may have to get myself to a place of acceptance.

TVGuide.com: Is it with Joss Whedon, and you're holding a golden lasso? [Carpenter's name often comes up in discussions about the Buffy creator's in-the-works Wonder Woman feature film.]

Carpenter: We're working on that [Carpenter possibly playing Wonder Woman]. I'm working on it, I'm working on it...

If not dearest Monica, then Carpenter will do fine.

Whedon is out which is sort of disappointing. According to AICN, Warner Bros. has now commissioned a script that takes place during WWII.

I'm a little disappointed that Whedon got yanked, but I still have hope that they don't completely fuck up the project.

SATIN TIGHTS NO LONGER. Joss will not be fighting for our rights after all.

You (hopefully) heard it here first: I'm no longer slated to make Wonder Woman. What? But how? My chest... so tight! Okay, stay calm and I'll explain as best I can. It's pretty complicated, so bear with me. I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked. Hey, not that complicated.

Let me stress first that everybody at the studio and Silver Pictures were cool and professional. We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that's never gonna work. Non-sympatico. It happens all the time. I don't think any of us expected it to this time, but it did. Everybody knows how long I was taking, what a struggle that script was, and though I felt good about what I was coming up with, it was never gonna be a simple slam-dunk. I like to think it rolled around the rim a little bit, but others may have differing views.

The worst thing that can happen in this scenario is that the studio just keeps hammering out changes and the writer falls into a horrible limbo of development. These guys had the clarity and grace to skip that part. So I'm a free man.

Well, sorta. There is that "Goners" movie I can finally finish polishing, and plenty of other things in the hopper I've wanted to pursue. I'm as relieved as I am disappointed, and both of those things lead to drink, so that's a plus. Truly, you may be hearing some interesting things brewing in the coming months. But all potential jets therein will be visible.

But most importantly, I never have to answer THAT question again!!!! And you don't have to link to every rumor site! Finally and forever: I never had an actress picked out, or even a consistant front-runner. I didn't have time to waste on casting when I was so busy air-balling on the script. (No! Rim! There was rim!) That's the greatest relief of all. I can do interviews again!

Thanks for your time. You are the people who make the world go 'round. Or, no, science does that.

Yes, Cass- Initialy, I agreed with you....  I am still a Linda loyalist.  She IS and always will be the original, the classic....
 I have the whole collection( along with other collectibles)!  (Born during Ford, ugh)- As a little girl, I even ran around with my WW undies, Linda Carter doll, & lunchbox...

Of course, I never thought there could be another African American Catwoman besides Eartha Kitt - She had the "purrrrfect" voice!  Yet, everything old is new again.  With the resurgence of comic-book movies, I had been pondering when someone would tackle Wonder Woman.  As times change, so have the concepts of heroes/heroines. Even from season 1 to season 2 of the original TV series - the setting changed from one era to another.

Since she (WW) will appear in a live action Justice League movie... it was only a matter of time before a feature was made.
Beyonce (though not set in stone) is intriguing.  At least her facial structure seems to fit and perhaps she could pull it off, though I am not sure she has enough charisma>

The other interesting thing is if there is a DC as well as Marvel crossover conceptualization, then we will see two versions (like the Batman & Hulk movies).  Warner Brothers did an amazing job with Dark Knight (Marvel), though the former version (DC) was classic.  So there is no telling...  I am sure there will be many more incarnations in the future!

Yeah. She's hot.

Does Alan Tudyk try to drunkenly pose with every single woman in Hollywood, or are they related in some way?

You see? You thought you understood the depths of how awful it could be. Then you were forced deeper.
