Joss Whedon talks about his Wonder Woman…

April 13th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Speaking with Total Film, Joss Whedon was asked to comment on whether the massive success of Marvel’s The Avengers has left him feeling bitter about past projects that never panned out.

After your movie goes on to gross over $1.5 billion worldwide, that sort of gives you the right to say I told you so.The magazine specifically asked him about his failed Wonder Woman pitch to Warner Bros.

He replied: “You know, part of the process of dealing with the success of The Avengers has been discovering a vein of anger that I didn’t even know existed in me. You do begin to think about when they let you do it, and you get it right, and then you think back to all of the times they didn’t let you do it.

“But I am my own worst enemy. I’m not really good at selling myself or standing up for myself and I have a pathological fear of confrontation, which is not really useful in this industry. There are plenty of times when I could have controlled my own career more than I did.

“All of these frustrations, and all of these setbacks, definitely surfaced again after The Avengers. So, yeah, you know what? Now I’m really pissed [laughs]. It used to just be my life and my living, and that was fine, but now I feel a bit… See? You see? But I know you can’t live your life like that. You have to stay positive.”

Gina Carano in a separate interview with Total Film, was asked whether she was still interested in bringing Wonder Woman to life on the big screen.

She replied: “Absolutely. Actually, I think that would be fascinating if done correctly, if they did it more in a way where they’re humanizing her. She comes from an all-female planet – something the world hasn’t seen. I just think there’s so much story there.”

What do guys think? Will we ever see Wonder Woman on the big screen? Can she pull it off?
