INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Everyone wants to know what Max Landis would do with established superheroes. The writer of the found-footage super-power movie Chronicle impressed a lot of people with the story of three teenage friends who deal with their newfound telekinetic powers.
Landis, who recently revealed his idea for a DC Comics project that never materialized, was asked on Reddit about other comic characters he’d like to work on, and replied: “[I’d like to do] either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me using the goth/punk seen and Kyle Rayner, or Wonder Woman, using a pitch that I intend to make to WB.”
So, what does all this mean? Honestly, not too much. There’s probably a small army of screenwriters with varying levels of clout trying to pitch Warner Bros. on its best-known superheroine. Hopefully, this potential plethora of pitches will help give the studio plenty of solid options to pick from, and we’ll eventually get a killer Wonder Woman movie.
