Wonder Woman has had a successful TV show, one that got cancelled before the pilot, one that is in the works and various failed attempts at a movie. She deserves a successful film. Many different ideas have been thrown around now you're about to hear mine. These are 10 things i wanna see in WW movie.
1) The Female Hercules
You might not know what I mean by female Hercules. I want her to be one of those heroes from the old Greek myths. I want her to go on adventures and face multiple challenges on the way until she gets to the final battle. Wonder Woman IS a female Hercules. Another things I want to see is the involvement of a some of the characters from ancient Greek mythology. Like the new 52 run, What I they should be involved in the story. I also want to a strong willed character that can take care of herself. She shouldn't take crap from anyone and should always be ready for a fight. One thing I don't wanna see is a misandrist (hater of men) Wonder Woman. Same with the rest of the Amazons. They shouldn't hate them, but feel that they don't need them. WW should start off as a girl not ready for a fight, but trying to start one. When that fight does come along she does everything to eat her opponent(s), but doesn't pay attention to her surroundings. She would be a great fighter if there was no one or thing around her other than her opponent, but if she's in a crowded place she would endanger a lot of lives. That could be one reason why Hippolyta doesn't want her to leave Themyscira. Over the course of the movie she would grow into a better warrior. Lastly Wonder Woman should just be a fun character. She likes to have fun. Her idea of fun might be to beat someone to a pulp, but she still likes to have fun.
2) The Costume
This is something that comes up EVERY time a WW movie is discussed. Some people argue that her comic book outfit is to slutty, but when you add pants people say it doesn't look like classic Wonder Woman. What I like about this outfit is that it's armor like, it has a ancient Greco-roman look and feel to it. It's armor like, it's not too revealing, but still gives us something to look at and it just looks really cool. Only thing I would change is the straps. I really don't like those. Some people might say that the panties look could work. I agree it could work, but one thing that usually comes with the panties is the thing I hate the most about WW. The stars meant to be like the american flag. I have nothing wrong with a character representing America (the country I was born and raised in), but when you think about it why would WW rep the american flag stuff anyway. She's from Themyscira a island full of only women. A island full of people that feel that men are useless in everything other than reproduction. They feel that men aren't needed in life and that females are the dominant species. America being a country that has always and continues to lift men higher than women. Since this movie would showcase her first time going to america she wouldn't know of the flag anyway. This costume wouldn't be to her a costume. It would be Themyscira battle armor. If they don't go with this costume I would like to see the New 52 version. Pants or no pants I don't care. Maybe in a scene where she's just walking around in the city with Steve Trevor or something she could were something like this.
3) A Director Who Can Deliver
Themyscira needs to be visually stunning. It is also called paradise island so it needs to look like a paradise. This film needs a director that can give us that. This director also needs to know how to bring that same beauty to a modern american city. I have 2 directors in mind. Peter Jackson and David Yates. Peter Jackson for all of his movies that take place in middle earth and David Yates for the 5 Harry Potter films that he did. I chose Peter Jackson for his way of creating hole worlds. I want what he brought to middle earth brought to Themyscira, Olympus and even the Underworld. The one doubt I have is that I have yet to see him do a film that took place in modern day. That transition from ancient Greece to modern america is big and I don't want the quality of stunning visuals to fall once that transition happens. I also liked him for his ability to make a movie look bright, but have a tone that's dark. My other choice David Yates is because he has the ability to make the transfer between the modern world and a fantasy world. The problem I have with him is that I don't know if he could be as visually stunning as Peter Jackson, but I guess he would be enough for a WW film.
4) The Origin, My Take!
One thing also mentioned a lot when discussing the WW movie is whether or not to use the new 52 origin or the pre flashpoint origin. Most fans have said pre flashpoint. I like both origins, but I feel that The one pf (pre flashpoint) origin would not work on film. I love the new 52 version for making WW a demi-god which she should be. The new 52 one also made it easier to introduce more gods in the storyline since her father is the king of them all. But since fans love their classic origin I have come up with an origin that combines the 2. Here it goes:
Hippolyta the Queen of the Amazons always wanted a daughter, but she was unable to bare children. Her only hope was that a god could give her one. She then began an affair with Zeus. Yet, she still couldn’t even bare the child of a God. Zeus felt sympathy and answered her prayers. Zeus asked all of the gods to help bless a baby girl, for Hippolyta. Hippolyta was told to form the baby out of clay and then come back the next day. The gods who agreed each blessed her
Demeter: With Strength, Invulnerability/Durability,
Hermes: With Speed, Flight, Healing factor
Athena: Divine Wisdom
Aphrodite: Great Beauty
Artemis: Enhanced Senses
The next day Hippolyta came back to find a beautiful baby girl. She named her Diana…
5) An Over Arcing Plot
Wonder Woman 1 Plot: Steve Trevor is sent on a mission by the U.S government to find something strange in the ocean that has recently been found. Trevor goes and lands on the island of Themyscira. He is taken prisoner by the Amazons, a race of Woman who live their without men. He is taken in for questioning and he tells them all about his mission. The queen of the Amazons Hippolyta holds a contest to see who would take Trevor back to were he came from. Hippolyta forbids Diana from participating. Diana secretly enters the competition. She wins and convinces her mother to send her out into the world with Trevor. When she gets back to America and tells the government about Themyscira the U.S declares war on Themyscira. Diana feels that something is wrong and she tries to figure out what is happening. She concludes that Ares was behind the war. He wanted revenge on the Amazons for defeating him years before. Wonder Woman goes on a quest to find Ares and to stop him. Trevor tags along. She fights various monsters and people until she reaches and Ares and has a final battle. She defeats him and he goes back to Olympus. Wonder Woman returns to Themyscira which is now filled with U.S soldiers fighting the Amazons. Wonder Woman tries to break up the fight on both ends, but they don't stop. Wonder Woman angry eventually sides with the Amazons and leaves Trevor. She along with many other Amazons kill a lot of U.S soldiers. The U.S Soldiers retreat. The Amazons celebrate their victory until Hippolyta stops the celebration and makes her way to Diana. Hippolyta blames all of the war on her. She says that if she had not told the U.S about Themyscira then none of this would've happened. Hippolyta banishes Diana from Themyscira. Meanwhile in Olympus, Ares meets with Hera and she says that she is disappointed in Ares. It is revealed to the audience that she was behind everything. She wanted to kill Diana because she is made that she was only created because of the affair between Hippolyta and Hera's husband Zeus.
This plot opens up to many sequels were Hera is the villain unknown to everyone, except her and the people she sends to kill Diana. The second film I feel should follow the storyline of Brian Azzarello's run on WW in the new 52.
6) Wonder Woman...More Like Warrior Woman
"One badass thing about Wonder Woman is that she kills, that’s the thing that sets her apart from the rest of The League, except the fact she is a woman… Anyway, Wonder Woman is a killer she isn’t looking for truth and justice she is looking to clean the streets and the way she does it, is kill. Gods trained Wonder Woman; she has been trained as though every situation is war. She kills for the greater good. She doesn’t battle criminals to bring them to justice, she battles them and kills them, and she is a killing machine." What you just read was written buy a user on comicbookmovie.com named Khan.

7) Don't Pick Gina Carano!!!!!
Gina Carano is probably casted as WW more than anyone else on the internet. Yeah she's...cute kinda, yeah she can do MMA and yeah she's been in a movie, but that doesn't make her Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman needs to be played by someone who can play a strong female character. Carano I feel doesn't have enough acting experience and ability to take on the role of one of the most iconic comic book characters to ever be created. I think that Adrianne Palicki DESERVES to be WW. She's HOT AS HELL, she is a decent actor and still looks sexy while opening a can of whoop-@$$ on you. All I could think about during G. I Joe Retaliation was how much I wanted to see her as WW. If you watch the cancelled pilot for the WW show which is available for free online you'll see how she could play a strong character. The writing might be way off for the character as far as source material, but Palicki did amazing with what she was given.
8) NO FREAKING INVISIBLE PLANE!!!! NO!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!! GOD NO!!!! PLEASE NO!!!!! IF ANYTHING NOT THAT!!!! PLEASE NO!!! I BEG YOU NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
If only one of these would make it in a WW film and I chose which one made it it would be this one. The invisible plane is pointless! Whoever created that should've just given her the power to fly. Even when artist gave her the power to fly she still used the invisible plane. If she could fly she would save so much time and energy. What even fuels that? How we she find it? With flying she just simply takes off. The invisible plane's only benefit would be for sneak attacks from the air, but WONDER WOMAN IS STILL SEEN WHY'LL IN THE SHIP WHICH MAKES NO SENSE!!!! I've never seen a valid argument on why she would need this when she could fly. One argument I've seen is What if she didn't want to fly alone? IF SHE WANTS TO FLY WITH SOMEONE THEN SHE COULD HOLD THEIR HAND LIKE SUPERMAN DOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!u
9) Weapons and Stuff
One thing I want to be shown in a WW film is that Wonder Woman is a warrior. She is a skilled hand to hand combatant, she is a skilled sword fighter, a skilled archer, a skilled lasso...person, a skilled javelin thrower, she's skilled at a lot of things. Wonder Woman is known for her unique objects. Her lasso of truth, her bracelets, her tiara. Here's what those things can do in this film.
Bracelets: The bracelets are made out of special material only found on Themyscira. They are bullet proof. These bracelets are also enchanted. With this enchantment a shield can magically form on the left bracelet and a sword can form out of the right one.
Tiara: The tiara is a simple Tiara. It is made out of the same material the bracelets are made out of though so if she hit you with it, it would hurt.
Lasso of Truth: The lasso of truth didn't really change. But it works on everyone not just men. It can extend to any length the user wants it to, as long as the user has the energy to do so.
I'd really just like WW to kick some but in this movie. Whether she's shooting arrows or deflecting them. All of these would be given to her along with her armor.
10) Don't Make Her Stupid! Just a Little Naive
The picture to the left is of a page in the first Story arc of the Justice League comic. Wonder Woman had just gotten outside of Themyscira and into the U.S. When I read this i stood in awe at how much I hated this page. It makes WW seem so Stupid. Yeah she might not know what Ice cream is, but this seen is pointless and stupid. I've seen a lot of interpretations of WW that make her seem like a stupid and clueless little girl that speaks old English. WW could be a little naive and curious since shes in a new world, but making her like how they did on this page to the left is something i don't want to see happen!
Thanks for reading! If you want to see me do these with any other heroes or even villains pm or tell me in the comments. Share with your 10 things that you wan to see in a WW movie. Do you agree or disagree? Let me know. DEUCES!
