Recently, studios have tried to reboot the Wonder Woman television series with little success. NBC was the last cable network to pass on the newly revamped show. Generally, studios have passed because the networks would be responsible for paying a hefty licensing fee. So if major networks like NBC or CBS pass, cable networks probably will pass as well.
But director Nicholas Winding Refn has said in a recent interview that he would love to direct a big screen adaptation. And Refn already has Christina Hendricks in mind for the role.
Hendricks actually wanted to play the part of an Amazonian princess for this failed TV pilot. Hendricks said on the Rachel Ray Show that: “I’ve been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life! I’d love to. That would be such fun! Let’s put it out there.”
But it’s a good thing she didn’t because Wonder Woman is too big of a character for the small screen. She deserves a chance to have a summer blockbuster or a huge flop like her Justice League colleagues Superman and Batman.
