Would people watch it or would it be "invisible"?

I think it might work better as a live action series. Something kinda like Smallville. Hot girls in togas and armor, yes please.

I loved the Wonder Woman animated movie. Sadly it didnt do so hot. So I cant see a WW animated series going over real big.

If they could present her in the same way she was in that movie, I'd absolutely watch it. Not enough people realize just how badass Diana actually is, despite all of her animated appearance show her kicking ass and taking names.

Yeah I like the way she was portrayed in the movie.

You can make an animated series out of anything if you do it right....

I would watch it. But what I think they should do to make it a good show is first present her rogue's gallery in a good way. Make her enemies look fearsome. Another is to make sure her character is done right and by that i mean don't make her dark and gritty because that would be terrible. Her character is one who has love for all and is pretty much the female version of Superman in terms of personality. Then her supporting cast should be presented well. Her origin should also be explained it in. I think that the show should be done in a way that people who don't really know anything about Wonder Woman or aren't into Wonder Woman will gain more interest in her and help them get a really good idea of who she is... and get more people to start reading Wonder Woman comics.

If it was Wonder Woman in her classic costume with her '87 origin I would definitely watch it. The problem with her though is the love interest thing. That might not fly with her so they'd have to find alternate subplots.

If "static shock" can have a amimated series, and it runs 4 seasons than i think wonder woman could work.

Its a blasphemy that Wonder Woman hasn't had one yet, even Bruce Timm says so
 
And Bruce Timm>Any other producer

I would love to see an animated series and even another animated movie. I know they said the animated movie didn't do well enough but when I look at the sales on wikipedia, I think it did pretty well and was in the upper middle of the released animated movies.

I've come to realize, that the only way to get the Wonder Woman from the comics on to any television screen is by giving her an animated show. The live-action series looks terrible (Although I will be watching it and will probably love it just because I get to see Wonder Woman) I'm the animated verison they could add much more of her mytical villians and mix it in with some normal villians. With the new live action series we are getting her fighting a buisness woman.... I guess we'll see how this turns out.

It would be cool if they did a mature Wonder Woman animated series that was heavy on the Amazon way of life. Kind of like the Spartacus TV show...

@jointron33: They can barely get a Wonder Woman comic book to sell. I think they need to fix DCU diana before branching her off into an animated series.

I think it would like a combination of Superman the animated series and Disney's Hercules

Yes, but she would need a good supporting cast. It would be awesome if it were centred on Greek mythology.

Guys, guys.

Think for a minute.

If you tied in a good amount of the Greek mythology, the gods and amazing fighting scenes, it would be amazing popular.

How do I know this?

It would be like an updated Xena. Except if Xena had superpowers and a bikini.

I'd watch it, but I'd want Bruce Timm behind it. Diana is WELL over due for her own show. I'd actually like to see one done with her dealing mythological stuff, and not just Greek. I'd like to see her tackle Norse, Egyptian, and even Mayan mythologies. Also, it'd be a good way to utilize DC's other magical heroes like Shazam(I spend years telling people his name isn't Shazam and now it is), Zatanna, Dr. Fate, or even Swamp Thing

DC almost always puts out good animated stuff. I'd love a WW series.
