Why Joss Whedon & Scarlett Johansson Should Do Wonder Woman Next

[CinemaBlend.com] There is no disputing that Marvel's 'The Avengers' directed by Joss Whedon, who I will forever love for creating Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and recently, Firefly, offers 5 reasons why Joss Whedon and Scarlett Johansson should do Wonder Woman next.

Now, back in 2005, Joss Whedon, had the chance to make a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Brothers. But the project was dropped in 2007. Joss's Wonder Woman was more like Tomb Raider's Lara Croft and that the film would explore the romance between Diana and Steve Trevor.

Whedon's recent updated sketches for Wonder Woman's costume were even reminiscent of David E. Kelley's costume.  Also, keep in mind, these updated sketches were long before DC unveiled their updated look.

The success of the Avenger's not only showed an ensemble superhero movie is possible but moviegoers will watch a strong female lead like Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, kick some serious butt and stand toe-to-toe with her male leads.  And why not even sweeten the deal and cast Scarlett Johansson as Wonder Woman? 

Give Joss Whedon the chance to make Wonder Woman.  Need someone to write a strong female lead like Wonder Woman, I would vote for Joss in a heartbeat.  I mean, just look at his resume of strong female leads: Buffy Summers, Eliza Dushku as anti-Buffy slayer, Faith, Christina Hendricksas Saffron, Zoe in Firefly, now Scarlett as Black Widow...I think he has what it takes to make an amazing Wonder Woman, and not just a pin-up, sexy model.

Marvel is kicking DC's ass in the movie department. Thor, The Avengers, Iron Man -- all huge successes but DC is still lingering on male superheroes to bring in the big bucks: Batman, Superman, why not complete the trio and give us Wonder Woman? If not in a starring role, she can be featured in a 'Justice League' movie and if the fans like her, give Wonder Woman her own movie.

You get the right writer, cast the perfect Wonder Woman, don't screw up the origin story and don't piss of the fans by ruining the costume and a Wonder Woman movie or TV show is possible.

End of rant.
