Wanna Know Who Stars In DC’s WONDER WOMAN DVD Movie??

I am – Hercules!!
On the “Batman: Gotham Knight” DVD due in two weeks, there’s a 10-minute featurette on the upcoming animated Wonder Woman DVD movie directed by Lauren Montgomery (“Superman Doomsday”) and based on the 1987 George Perez relaunch that pitted the Amazon princess against god of war Ares. It’s been known for a few months (but not widely publicized) who landed the roles of Diana of Themyscira and Steve Trevor, but the featurette fills us in on three more key roles: Keri Russell: Princess Diana Nathan Fillion: Steve Trevor Alfred Molina: Ares Virginia Madsen: Hippolyta Rosario Dawson: Artemis Fans of the old Lynda Carter show know Steve is Diana’s flyboy love interest; Hippolyta is queen of the Amazons and Diana’s mom. Artemis is the Amazon who threatens to castrate Steve if he comes “within five yards” of Diana. The featurette also reveals that the project’s writer is Michael Jelenic, whose credits include “The Batman” and “Legion of Super Heroes” Saturday-morning TV shows.

    Where's Teen Titans?

    by Chaosinabox

    What happened to "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract"? Wasn't that supposed to come after "Batman: Gotham Knight"?

    THats a good cast...but this doesnt excite me

    by mmaddox3

    They need to stop dicking around with the big 3 over at dc and start introducing the general public to other heroes...i mean how badass would an animated verision of green lantern rebirth or sinestro corps be. i know for a fact it would be cooler than a wonder woman toon.

  • June 25, 2008, 1:11 p.m. CST

    Basing it on Perez' relaunch is a great idea

    by SpyGuy

    Those first six issues (collected in the WW: GODS AND MORTALS trade paperback) would make a solid WONDER WOMAN movie as well. And the WW: CHALLENGE OF THE GODS trade would make a great sequel. <p>I hope you're paying attention, Joel Silver! Have your people call my people if you want a screenplay draft...</p>

    Chaosinabox: According to Marv Wolfman, JUDAS CONTRACT is...

    by SpyGuy backburnered because Warner Home Video thinks there's not a big enough audience for something that awesome. <p>And yes, the guys at WHV are obviously a bunch of inbred douchebags.</p>

    No Lyle Waggoner, No Peace

    by Aquatarkusman

    Know Lyle Waggoner, Know Peace. He was the first centerfold for Playgirl, for shit's sake, and a finalist for the 60s Batman role before young upstart Adam West beat him out!

    where the woman has to save the dude

    by frankenfickle

    woman has to save dude = not compelling. to anyone. it's biological.

  • June 25, 2008, 1:43 p.m. CST

    Sounds interesting. Know I'll watch it.

    by Yeti

    Keri Russell would make an excellant Wonder Woman for the live version - DC are you listening?

  • June 25, 2008, 1:50 p.m. CST

    Add my voice to the others.

    Put that cast in front of the cameras, thanks!

    Superman Doomsday

    by Heckles

    Was a turd nugget. Seeing that after Ultimate Avengers 2 doesn't make me all to happy in the pants to see any more animated comic movies. How was the Iron Man or Dr. Strange animated flicks?

  • June 25, 2008, 2:06 p.m. CST

    To increase sales...

    by snowpuff

    ...Keri Russell read her lines while completely naked.<br>

    Haven't we known Keri was in this since Jan?

    Judas Contract

    by dihay

    got put on the backburner because Superman's Doomsday, as well as the Brainiac feature before it, is a failure according to sales. Warners' outlook is that completely original stories are the way to go, ala Gotham Knight. Not sure how well New Frontier has done. I believe Warners was confused about the premise of Judas Contract also as it is much different than the recent Teen Titans animated show.

  • June 25, 2008, 3:06 p.m. CST

    Sounds like Nolan has hit it out of the park

    by performingmonkey

    Well, that's what we were expecting, but you never know how the end result could turn out. Not that I'm spoiled but I'm pretty sure that Rachel HAS to die in order for Dent to completely lose it. Her death would be the ideal event to cement the two characters of Bruce Wayne and Harvey Dent together.

  • June 25, 2008, 3:07 p.m. CST

    So how are they going to "manga up"...

    by Kid Z

    ...and ruin the Wonder Woman costume like how they turned Batman into Aardvarkman (or something... weird, weird variation on the Batsuit) in Gotham Knight?

    by Zarles

    That RS review gives me the willies. Can't wait!

    Keri Russell as a live version?

    by Antz

    No way. Get real she is only 5'4". You'd have to have hobbits play the rest of the roles.

  • June 25, 2008, 3:22 p.m. CST


    by Kid Z

    ...what about Ripley? Exception to your "rule"?

  • June 25, 2008, 3:41 p.m. CST

    Why isn't Nathan Fillion Green Lantern?

    by tk 421

    Because he's a shitty actor.

  • June 25, 2008, 3:43 p.m. CST

    Good chemistry in Waitress

    Should work again.

    by Alkeoholic77

    How was Ironman and Dr. Strange? You know the Holocaust? Yeah worse than that.

  • June 25, 2008, 4 p.m. CST

    With the exception of Russell...

    by RenoNevada2000

    With the exception of Russell, this would be a good live action cast.

  • June 25, 2008, 4:04 p.m. CST

    Anyone really like Wonder Woman?

    by fiester

    Other than eye-candy?

  • June 25, 2008, 4:13 p.m. CST

    Nathan Fillion should be Hal Jordan...

    by Wonderboys a live-action movie. A Wonder Woman movie based on the Perez relaunch would be cool too.

  • June 25, 2008, 4:17 p.m. CST

    No I don't want to know

    by smackfu

    Because correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't wonder woman an amazon princess that deflects bullets with her bracelets, flies an invisible plane and lassos people? DC readers are suckers.

  • June 25, 2008, 4:27 p.m. CST

    Justice League: The New Frontier

    by nyj_et

    Was awesome. Superman/Doomsday sucked. Gotham Knight looks good.

  • June 25, 2008, 4:56 p.m. CST

    Doomsday was shitty

    by Judge Briggs

    Turned it off 10 mins into it.

  • June 25, 2008, 4:57 p.m. CST

    Keri Russel is a good choice

    by Hikaru Ichijo

    Great voice and vocal inflection. I'll watch this with my niece and nephew.

  • June 25, 2008, 5:41 p.m. CST

    Sweet Keri

    by Lance4431

    I looooove Keri Russell. I think she'll have still have a decent career twenty years from now. The girl can act...Felicity was kind of silly but she was really magnetic. She sparkled in Waitress. Fillion and everyone else quirked it up in that movie but Keri blew them all away by giving us a character that was grounded and real.

  • June 25, 2008, 6:48 p.m. CST

    Answer: No

    Is this a Kevin Conroy batman movie?

    by punto

    if so, awesome

    I'd rather watch Lynda Carter's jumblies bounce around in reruns!

    Here's hoping DC/WB got their shit together after DOOMSDAY sucke

    by Monkey_King

    Keep the films faithful to their comics origins and you will make tons of money. Promise!

  • June 25, 2008, 8:14 p.m. CST

    I liked Waitress

    by INWOsuxRED

    therefore I will like this cartoon about Wonder Woman!

    The breast plate would hurt

    by mothandrust

    I reckon that eagle head in the middle of her breast plate would dig in to her cleavage and hurt like hell should she do forward somersaults. I know she has wonder skin but it's always bugged me. She'd look good standing next to captain America. They could swap clothes, laugh and swap back again. It'd be a fun five minutes in a crossover special.

  • June 26, 2008, 8:21 a.m. CST

    The most important question:

    Who will play Etta Candy?!?

    Captain Tightpants as Steve Trevor

    by oisin5199

    Would love to see him in the live version. If only WB had used Joss' script. Damn you, Joel Silver!!!

  • June 26, 2008, 3:03 p.m. CST

    Sounds like trouble!

    by Redbox

    From the people who directed “Superman Doomsday” and wrote “The Batman” and “Legion of Super Heroes”? Superman Doomsday was awful. The New Frontier was half brilliant and then half truncated into nothing. Superman Brainac was for 4 year olds. Some of "the batman" and some of the Legion were ok.. What happened to JLU? I'm hoping this Batman Anime is good, because DC Animated is sucking alomst as much as Marvel's Animated movies. Although Spectacular Spider-man is spectacular!!!

  • June 26, 2008, 3:52 p.m. CST


    by Bat185

    Superman/Doomsday wasn't as bad as most people are making it out to be. It was a poor rendition of the "Death of Superman" comics storyline, sure, but on its own it was a good story. There is so much going on in that comics storyline that it would be tough to make a faithful adaptation in a 75min. movie.

  • June 27, 2008, 12:47 p.m. CST

    The Batman/Superman/JLU universe is officially dead.

    by Deathpool

    Just letting you know, Redbox. The last remnant of it was a Justice League Unlimited comic, which just had its final issue a week or two ago. RIP.

  • June 27, 2008, 12:50 p.m. CST


    by tjrmusic

    YES! Anybody who watched Superman/Doomsday thinking it would be a page by page adaptation of the comic is no being realistic. both Superman/Doomsday and New Frontier where cool animated adaptations so long as you have realistic expectations as to what can be adapted in 75 minute film

    Why do a dvd for Wonder Woman?

    by Rufferto

    she's not popular or interesting enough.

  • June 27, 2008, 5:52 p.m. CST

    Bruce Timm said these would be special

    by Rufferto

    so far he lied. The Batman one might be good but I suspect it will be because of Conroy. Timm said over and over again there wouldn't be the same actors from the animated series but that's what works. This whole concept of trying to remove himself from the BTAS world is dumb dumb dumb! He can't remove himself from it. If he makes the character designs it's always going to have that feel.

  • June 27, 2008, 6:21 p.m. CST

    What I would like to see if something DARK

    by Rufferto

    twisted and R rated. Adapt the Killing Joke or Death in the family. Grow some balls! <p>The complete neutering and bastardization of icons like Bats and Spider-man for the kiddies in recent years on the WB and CNW has killed quality 2d animated programs for years to come.</p> <p>I don't watch these new stylized cartoons with their disproportional characters that lack tons of detail. Stuff like that new Transformers shit. </p> <p>If Bruce Timm has to design the characters he should take that leap forward and ad some more detail to them. Not less. Make something adult. Then I will be interested.</p> <p>It's straight to DVD. That gives you a lot of freedom I think to tells stories that the BTAS couldn't even though. Even though it was always remained very intelligent and never talked down to its audience.</p> <p>Get someone who can write! Someone who can manage decent dialog (especially for teenage characters) without trying to talk down to you with childish hip talk like "emo" or any of that bull shit.</p> <p>Also these take forever to come out. I don't know how anyone can stay interested and wait that long.</p>
