Ah Wonder Woman, the most inconic superheroine around with countless of stories and reinventations to the charcter that have had in some ways helped the charcter evole but in other ways completly failing to capture what made Wonder Woman great in the first place. It's time i look at this Amazon and how she could work in a TV Show or even her own Movie:

NUMBER 1: THE COSTUME

Yes i love Wonder Woman but if there is one thing i cannot stand about her..it's the costume.. the outfit is ridiculous. The outfit is just not good for live action just like Wolverine's yellow masked comic suit..no one is going to take you very seriously looking like that..

In my opinon the best revenitation of a popular costume to the big screen was in Captiain Amercia: The First Avengers




God that costume was perfect The Man of Steel costume is also a great example of this because the classic superman outfit just doesn't work for the big screen anymore.. For the live action movie they basically needs to do that but with Wonder Woman, here is a great example of the Wonder Woman costume done right:



This is a fan-made artwork if she were to actually exist in our real world. This is a much better improvement that the outfit that she wears in the comics. This costume still keeps the iconic feel but also making it realstic for modern audiences.This outfit keeps her sex appeal, her badass feel & most of all she can be taken seriously..this is how to do a wonder woman for the big screen.I freaking lov

e it and i really hope they go with something similar when they reinvent her for the big screen

NUMBER TWO: HER ORIGIN STORY



In my personal opinion i think they need to keep as close as possible on the original origin of Wonder Woman but still add in some new changes to keep it fresh and unique..for example Batman in Batman Begins and Superman in Man of Steel.I do not think they should keep Diana as the daughter of Zeus but as instead the daughter of Hades ( Who had sex with Hippolyta in a flashback). This could be a lot more interesting and would really work for some inner conflict between her demon side ( Hades is basically a Demon in a form of a good) and her Amazon side. This in my opinion would be the best choice for Wonder Woman's origin.

NUMBER 3: THE VILLAINS



I will say it right now..the best choice for the villain in the Wonder Woman movie would honestly be Hades. I would love to see the relationship between the main hero and the main villain especially because they are father and daughter. Hades could be a fantastic villain but personally i think Hades should be CGI..as for who they could get to voice him in the movie..well i would love to see S. Scott Bullock use his Hades voice in Kid Icures Uprising for the Wonder Woman movie..i know it won't happen but it's just a suggestion

NUMBER 4: WHO SHOULD BE WONDER WOMAN?


.
Personally i feel that Lynn Collins from John Carter..that would be freaking amazing..She would be a fantastic choice of Wonder Woman in my personal opinion

I don't care too much about the costume design that you posted, but the article I agree with. I am not sure about Lynn Collins yet, because I have only seen her in one movie as a very emotional character who had lost her husband. So sometime I'm gonna see John Carter, and make my decision then!

Definitely need a new costume design. It is way past time. I actually think that is the hardest part of presenting the character.

I have to disagree about the origin story. I think they need to run away from the Greek mythology aspect of the character. They need to get her out of that world which in my opinion holds back Wonder Woman. In addition, I think it is wrong to make Wonder Woman a child of tragedy (i.e. her mother was raped, she is a bastard child, Amazons are men hating killers). I find it more than interesting that Batman and Superman always have very moral parents or caregivers and a stable upbringing from people who are great scientists, doctors, or billionaires. It should be the same for Wonder Woman. Hippolyta should be a wise and great Queen who is a role model for Wonder Woman.

Finally, at 36 Lynn Collins is 1) approaching the older side of a character hopefully expected to anchor a trilogy and also be part of a justice league franchise which could last a decade; and 2) is already associated with a Marvel character (Silver Fox) which breaks the unwritten rule of one superhero per actor.

This is a great read, but I have strong doubts that Lynn Collins would do a CW show at this point in her career. I am extremely grateful that the Arrow and SHIELD shows exist and I hope the Amazon show moves forward midseason or next fall(2014).

Play Injustice: Gods Among Us The take on her costume is great. It's sort of her classic costume but imporved.

@ KryptonianAbominationClone

I get that...but it isn't even a part of the Greek myth about her. So where does it come from?

My point is that whenever women are portrayed in comics...there are often times victims or associated with sexual crimes. (Catwoman was a prostitute etc..) Is there a story of a male comic book character being raped or prostituting himself?

I'll put it this way...try to imagine a story where Superman is the bastard child of a Kryptonian king who raped his mother. It kind of puts a different spin on him doesn't it?

Writer Gail Simone complained about similar things citing a list of "major female characters that had been killed, mutilated, and depowered" and portrayed as victims.

So my point was to create a setting in which Wonder Woman is not associated with victim hood whether to herself or from her parentage.
