Wonder Woman will be played by Charisma Carpenter [google.com] , aka Cordelia Chase on Buffy and Angel.

Well she's certainly someone who is every bit as attractive as a mature woman as back when she was a "girl", bit like Teri Hatcher or Alyssa Milano that way.

Noooo, she is too short and wimpy looking. I don't know if she can act, but Lucy Lawless (Xena) might be a good choice; at least she looks the part. Then again if the outfit is skimpy enough maybe the acting part is optional.

Political Correctness... like the mentality that drives sales of Maxim, Playboy, and Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball. I don't think we need to worry about her losing the skimpy suit, since the only people complaining about "decency in entertainment" are the conservatives who complain about politcal correctness.

On the good side, though, it's not being directed by Uwe Boll. So, uh... thumbs up on that one.

kebes (861706) | more than 9 years ago | (#11968054)

No matter what (self-proclaimed) nerds say, being a "nerd" does not involve loving *all* things nerdy. For every single one of us, there will be slashdot stories that will be outside our area of expertise (where "expertise" may be what you do at work, or what you do in your spare time). I think the point of "news for nerds" is that alot (though not all) will find the news to be of interest, whereas the rest may very well learn about something new closely related to other things they like. When a story pops up that really has nothing to do with you (and doesn't interest you), you can always skip it... what I find amazing is not the fact that 10% of stories are about things that I really don't care about... but the fact that 90% of stories are about things that I do care about. That's alot better that most news sources (for a person like me, that is).

Re:Really is "news for Nerds" (1)

SteelV (839704) | more than 9 years ago | (#11968073)

I'm not saying it's not "news for nerds." I'm saying that it *really* is!

The "nerd" stereotype of sitting alone in the cafeteria reading comic books before leaving school early to wait in line for the Star Trek convention.

It takes more than just a good director... (1)

kebes (861706) | more than 9 years ago | (#11967895)

I love(d) Buffy and Angel... but somehow firefly didn't have the same magic. My point? I think Joss is very talented, but you have to have the right mix of talent in all departments (actors, writers, director, cinematography, etc. etc.) for a project to really work. I don't know why firefly didn't mesh the way Buffy and Angel did (and indeed many people will probably disagree with me anyway), but I'm not confident this movie will be any different.

Re:It takes more than just a good director... (1)

the_weasel (323320) | more than 9 years ago | (#11967999)

yep, the success of a project like Buffy or Angel is very dependent on team. However, Firefly was in my own opinion far superior to either show.

So the fact is that in 3 out of 4 tv/film projects Whedon has been involved in (that I know of) there has been excellent work far exceeding my expectations.

Unfortunately, the bad project was also a film.

I disagree. :) I find both Angel and Buffy to be too cheesy, to the point of being painful to watch. I know a number of people who like both, but if either starts playing, I change the channel or leave the room. I thought Firefly, on the other hand, was very well done. The dialogue was much, much better and I thought the cast was quite talented. I guess it is all just a matter of preference.

Re:It takes more than just a good director... (1)

kvn299 (472563) | more than 9 years ago | (#11968022)

I think if you compare the first seasons of both Buffy and Angel to Firefly, I think you'll find that Firefly had a lot more potential. As it stands, it's still one of the best TV shows I've seen in a while.

hobit (253905) | more than 9 years ago | (#11968045)

I'd argue Firefly was outstanding, other than the writing. It was the land of plot flaws and science errors. But the acting was outstanding for the first season of any sci-fi show. The characters were great and the "writing in the small" was outstanding. Just the plot holes killed it.

Just the plot holes.

Re:No Cats, Please (1)

Mik3D (792355) | more than 9 years ago | (#11968013)

I am hoping that the choice of Joss to direct the film means that Hollywood studios have learned from their recent female-superhero flops (Electra, Catwoman, etc...) where more emphasis is placed on tight leather outfits and wire-rig stunts than character development, acting and plot.

One thing Joss was always good at was writing and directing female characters who had depth.

Wonderwoman was never that cool or popular like batman/superman/spiderman/x-men

Daredevil bombed because it used a realatively unpopular superhero.

The Incredible Hulk bombed because of gimmicky direction, bad acting and a bad story.

Its hard to make a good superhero flick. Doing something origional is pretty tough for the popular characters because so much has already been done in the comic books.

This will bomb, and I feel bad for whoever is cast as wonderwoman. I doubt their carrer will recover from such a stunning setback.

Alicia Silverstone would be a good fit for this role. Haven't you watched Batman?

Supposedly both Sarah Michelle Gellar and Charisma Carpenter are being pushed, one by Joss and one by the studio. Personally, I think Charisma can pull it off better, if only because she has the height. I don't picture Wonder Woman as 5-foot-and-change.

I say it should be Erica Durance, who plays Lois Lane in Smallville.

...but Jessica Simpson has the looks and the body most closely resembling Lynda Carter.

Most of the other choices I've seen suggested here are just not voluptuous enough to be Wonder Woman. It's not that they're not attractive, just not beautiful.

Way to go Whedon, and good luck. (1)

I think Whedon hasn't come up with a decent idea since Buffy, and even then he had been coasting for a long time leading up to the final season. In my opinion, Firefly was garbage, and Titan AE was an "Eh" so far as a potentially groundbreaking animated feature could have been. "Serenity" is going to be Whedon's attempt at an apology, but I doubt it'll amount to much.

Wonder Woman in my estimation is really a horrible, outdated character, and he'll have to re-invent her if he plans to get anywhere. John Byrne better be on the set if he wants to get any real insight into that character - he's the only one that really understands her.

Yes I am interested in hearing what he's doing, but laughing my ass off that he'll plan to take on Wonder Woman instead of X3, which is much more his speed. At any rate, good luck and hope it works out.
