Joss Whedon Discusses WONDER WOMAN; & Will ITEM 47 Stars Be In His S.H.I.E.L.D. Show?

Joss Whedon Discusses WONDER WOMAN; & Will ITEM 47 Stars Be In His S.H.I.E.L.D. Show?

At the Toronto International Film Festival, Joss Whedon was promoting his new Shakespearean take on Much Ado About Nothing and he chatted with Crave Online about Wonder Woman and his upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series.

In 2003 Joss Whedon had signed on to write and direct a live-action film for Wonder Woman. Warner Bros. of course didn't see eye-to-eye with Whedon's vision, which centered around the Amazonian Princess learning about humanity from an outsider's perspective. I'm assuming after The Avengers smashed box office records left and right that WB is kicking themselves for letting Whedon's talents go elsewhere. Since then WB teamed-up with David E. Kelley for an ill-fated Wonder Woman television series, and even more recently CW has expressed interest in making their own television series for Diana Prince.
They’re still trying to do Wonder Woman. Even David E. Kelley couldn’t get it aired on TV. Why don’t they know how to do that character?

I don’t think that was a match. I just don’t. I don’t think that he needs to write about superheroes. You need to need to write about superheroes to write about superheroes. If that’s not in your vernacular, you may bring something new and interesting to it, but at the end of the day, if you don’t have that burning desire to talk about these people who have these insane powers, then some other agenda is going to come forward and you might accidentally turn off the dark.





As for the new S.H.I.E.L.D. television series, Whedon has promised a new cast of characters, but some have been curious if Lizzy Kaplan and Jesse Bradford might find their way onto the show. The two star in the Marvel short film, Item 47, which accompanies the September 25 Blu-ray release of The Avengers.
We’re excited you’re doing another television series, let alone “S.H.I.E.L.D.” Will there be room for Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford on “S.H.I.E.L.D.” after they were in Item 47?

I honestly do not think they are available because I think she is on another show. We’re building it with a new group of people. They were great and that had a lot to do with why we are making the show, but we are starting fresh.
