Wonder Woman as a TV show? Sounds like a good idea to me – although David Kelley’s involvement leads me to worry that it’ll end up being more 1960s Batman than Smallville meets Xena, as camp as the latter may sound. But here’s the obvious question: Who should play Diana?
In case you missed Friday’s surprise news: Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are planning a Wonder Woman series not in the movies, but on television, with Ally McBeal and Boston Legal‘s David E. Kelley in the running for showrunner; the project is apparently close to being shopped to networks.
This one isn’t even a poll, because I’ll admit: My mind is blank. Who fits the bill for Wonder Woman? Who is young, beautiful and kick-ass enough to take on such an iconic role, and cheap enough to do it on a weekly basis for network television? My natural inclination is to suggest an unknown, but I’m sure you can all go better than that, so take it to the comments and take me to school: Who is perfect for the new small screen Amazon Princess?
