Director JOSS WHEDON jumped at the chance to make the new WONDER WOMAN
movie, because he's convinced no-one has done the Amazonian Princess justice
A leading lady has yet to sign to slip into the iconic heroine's lycra
catsuit, but a number of names - including SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR, MICHELLE
RODRIGUEZ, JESSICA BIEL, KIM BASINGER, SANDRA BULLOCK and CHARISMA CARPENTER -
have been linked to
the lead role.
Whedon tells website MOVIEHOLE.NET, confirming gossip linking him with the
project, "Wonder Woman is the most iconic female heroine of our time, but in a
way, no one has met her yet.
"What I love most about icons is finding out what's behind them, exploring
the price of their power...
"I realised there is a woman behind the legend who is very fascinating,
very uncompromising and in her own way almost vulnerable. She's someone who
doesn't belong in this world, and since everyone I know feels that way about
character clicked for me."
