Next year’s live-action “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League” could only be the beginning of the plans for DC Comics’ iconic superheroine.
Responding to a question from the audience today at New York Comic Con, Warner Bros. Animation supervising producer James Tucker revealed another Wonder Woman animated project may be on the horizon.
“We discussed with Warner video, and they have ‘Wonder Woman’ on their radar in some form or fashion,” he said at the first-look screening of the animated “Justice League Dark.”
It’s no surprise that the superheroine would be on Warner Home Entertainment’s radar, given her rising prominence in the DC Films universe. Gal Gadot was introduced as Wonder Woman this year in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” where her performance was widely singled out amid otherwise-mixed to negative reviews. She’ll reprise the role in 2017 in a solo film, directed by Patty Jenkins, and in the ensemble “Justice League,” from Zack Snyder.
The character’s last animated solo outing was in the 2009 direct-to-DVD film “Wonder Woman,” loosely based on the 1987 comic book arc “Gods and Monsters” by George Perez, Greg Potter and Len Wein. The movie starred Keri Russell as Wonder Woman and Nathan Fillion as Steve Trevor, with Alfred Molina as Ares, Rosario Dawson as Artemis, Marg Helbenberger as Hera, Oliver Platt as Ares and Virginia Madsen as Hippolyta.
