Augie has thoughts on some of the C2E2 news from last weekend, a theory on why lighting should play a role in judging Wonder Woman's costume, some adventures in comics marketing and more digital comics mayhem.
The veteran actor will star opposite Adrianne Palicki in David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman, playing the CEO of Themyscira Industries who oversees the day-to-day operations while Diana fights crime. He also could become a potential love interest for the superheroine.
Tracie Thoms has been cast as personal assistant Etta Candy and Pedro Pascal as police officer Ed Indelicato in David E. Kelley's TV revival of Wonder Woman. They join Adrianne Palicki and Elizabeth Hurley.
The model and actress has announced she'll play "the evil villain" -- presumably, that's Veronica Cale -- in NBC's Wonder Woman revival, starring opposite Adrianne Palicki, who was cast last month.
The actress, who famously played Wonder Woman for three seasons from 1975 to 1979, says it's time for a revival: "I think the story needs to be retold. It needs to have a fresh look at it."
Friday Night Lights director Jeffrey Reiner is wrapping up a deal to helm the NBC pilot for David E. Kelley's new Wonder Woman television series.
McG, director of Termination Salvation and the two Charlie's Angels movies, is reportedly the odds-on favorite to helm the pilot of David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman revival at NBC.
Despite experiencing a setback last week when his planned Wonder Woman revival failed to find a buyer, David E. Kelley insists that he's "optimistic" audiences will see the series next year: "The bottom line is, I had a lot of fun writing it and we're still optimistic that we're gonna do it. We have a script that Warners and DC are very excited about."
In another setback for the franchise, Warner Bros. Television has postponed plans for a Wonder Woman reboot after David E. Kelley's pilot script failed to land a deal with a network.
The creator of The Practice and Ally McBeal has revealed that "there's no real deal in place yet" for him to adapt DC's Wonder Woman for live-action television, but that he intends "to take a stab at it": "I'm at the point where I'm trying to figure out if I can make the franchise work for me."
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?
