Joss Whedon on Wonder Woman

Australia’s ABC Radio National talked to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel” and “Firefly” creator Joss Whedon about his upcoming film version of the latter, “Serenity”. He also talked about his next project, the Wonder Woman movie.

“We’ll meet a Wonder Woman who is similar to the one from the original comics and from the TV series to an extent,” said Whedon. “Neither of them are really a template. I’ve never loved the comics and I didn’t watch the television series, but I loved the character very much.”

He added that “she doesn’t really understand this world, she’s very strong but she’s also very naive. She’s not quite as little as the girls I’m used to writing, but she’s definitely one of them in the sense of she’ll undergo that kind of baptism of fire that used to be relegated to the male gender. She’ll have to come into the world and see how corrupt it is and learn to deal with it and with her own powers. She is kind of, in a way, the grandma of everything I’ve been writing my whole life, so it makes sense that we should meet.”

Wonder Woman will be produced by Joel Silver and Leonard Goldberg, and is based on the DC Comics character created by William Moulton Marston. The film will be released worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
