Although the Lynda Carter series of the 1970s was a fan favorite, nobody has been able to bring the character back to life on the big screen or the small screen since then, except for some cartoons. Joss Whedon, the man responsible for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, had been linked for a while to a possible Wonder Woman motion picture, but that seems to be a dead project now that he is focusing all his attention on Marvel Entertainment's The Avengers.
Will the new series be faithful to the traditional story of Wonder Woman? Will we see her magic lasso of truth, her bulletproof bracelets, her invisible plane? Which costume will she wear -- the iconic star-spangled outfit that is most familiar with audiences around the world or a version similar to the controversial new design that is depicted in the current comics? Will it be a reboot that retells her origin like Smallville did for Superman or will Kelley stick with established storylines as a foundation?
Hopefully a television series will not preclude a movie version, but right now DC seems to be concentrating on its Batman, Superman, and Green Lantern franchises for movie theaters. If they are smart, though, they will not treat Wonder Woman as a second-class citizen. If done right, she can be a powerhouse in any medium.
