Wonder Woman is a member of an all-female tribe of Amazons (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and was created by Marston as a "distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to 'a world torn by the hatred of men.'"[2] Her powers include super-strength, super-speed, super-stamina, super-agility, and flight. .She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare.^ She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare.

In March 2005, Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures announced that Joss Whedon would write and direct the film adaptation of Wonder Woman.[47] Whedon's salary was reported to be between $2 to $3 million.[48] Since Whedon was directing Serenity at the time, and required time to research Wonder Woman's background, he did not begin the screenplay until late 2005.[49] According to Joel Silver, the script would cover Wonder Woman's origin and include Steve Trevor: "Trevor crashes on the island and they go back to Man's World."[50] Silver wanted to film Wonder Woman in Australia once the script was completed.[51] .While Whedon stated in May 2005 that he would not cast Wonder Woman until he finished the script,[52] Charisma Carpenter[53] and Morena Baccarin[54] expressed interest in the role.^ Interesting that they may hire an Indian woman to do her role.

Translations


Simple English

Wonder Woman is a superheroine, who appears in DC Comics. She is the one of the first and most famous female superheros. William Moulton Marston created her in 1941. He was a psychologist who believed that women could be as strong and powerful as men. Many people think Marston was helped by his wife and based Wonder Woman on his mistress.

Story

In the comic book, Wonder Woman's real name is Princess Diana and is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, ruler of the Amazons (a race of female warriors from Greek mythology). She is found by Steve Trevor, a US Air Force pilot, and taken to the United States, where she becomes the superhero Wonder Woman. She has a magic lasso and unbreakable bracelets, both of which help in fighting villains. She can run very fast, is very strong, and she can fly.

In Other media

Wonder Woman had also appeared in animated cartoons and in a live-action television program in the 1970s with actress Lynda Carter. The series made the character very famous.

In January 2001, producer Joel Silver asked Todd Alcott to write a Wonder Woman screenplay.[1] Early rumors listed actresses such as Mariah Carey, Sandra Bullock, and Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the role of Wonder Woman.[2] Leonard Goldberg, speaking in a May 2001 interview, named Sandra Bullock as a strong candidate for the project.[3] Bullock said that she was asked to play the role. Lucy Lawless and Chyna both were interested in it. The screenplay then went through many versions written by many different writers.[4] By August 2003, Levens was replaced by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis.[5]

In March 2005, Warner Bros. said that Joss Whedon would write and direct the movie version of Wonder Woman.[6] Because Whedon was directing Serenity at the time, and needed time to learn Wonder Woman's background, he did not start writing until late 2005.[7] Silver wanted to movie Wonder Woman in Australia once the script was finished.[8] In May 2005, Whedon said that he would not cast Wonder Woman until he finished the script.[9] Charisma Carpenter[10] and Morena Baccarin[11] said they were interested in the role.

In February 2007, Whedon left the project. He said there were problems with differences about the script between the studio and himself.[12] Whedon said that since he was not doing the Wonder Woman project, he would focus on making his film Goners.[12]
