Up until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman fans just haven’t been feeling the love from Warner Bros. Animation. But now, I believe it can safely be said that 2017 will be the year of the Amazon princess.
After years of patiently waiting Wonder Woman fans are finally going to get their day, or in this case, their year. We’ve known for quite some time now that the warrior princess would be appearing in two live-action films in 2017 — the solo Wonder Woman film scheduled to premiere next June and the Justice League crossover slated for November, with Gal Gadot reprising her role as Wonder Woman in both projects. And the character will also be the subject of a biopic/documentary of comic book creator William Moulton Marston and the two women who greatly inspired him in the creation of the Wonder Woman character.
And now, you can add a proposed animated feature to the list of Wonder Woman projects. It was announced at the New York Comic-Con last week by Warner Bros. Animation supervising producer James Tucker was asked a question regarding any future plans for a Wonder Woman standalone animated feature along with the live-action film. Tucker did indeed admit that something was on the table:
“We discussed with Warner video, and they have Wonder Woman on their radar in some form or fashion.”
Fans haven’t seen a solo animated movie since 2009’s Wonder Woman. But I think as long as these new Wonder Woman projects are well received and successful, and with the help of the popular of the Supergirl series over on The CW, we’ll be seeing more of the Amazon princess in the future. Hell, if Suicide Squad, a movie where known super-criminals are the heroes in the movie, can be successful at the box office, why can’t super-heroines? I see no reason as to why they can’t!
