Linda Carter Needs A Cameo In The Whedonverse.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel/Firefly creator Joss Whedon is writing a movie script for Wonder Woman.

"I'm probably going to turn it in in a few days," Whedon said of his Wonder Woman script. "It's coming along. ... There will be all of the expected stuff. Of course there will be the bracelets; there will be the invisible jet, the lasso, all of that.

"Whedon likened the character to another one of his creations, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, adding: "It's about girls maturing, a rite of passage, that kind of thing."

Ummm...superhero movies are hit or miss. You get great ones (Superman, Batman, X-Men, Spiderman, Batman Begins), decent ones (X-Men 2, DareDevil), and those that suck (Incredible Hulk, Supergirl, Electra, Catwoman, The Punisher [both of them]). Notice all the female hero movies suck so far. They sucked because of horrible scripts. However if someone can write a good script for a female superhero movie it is Joss Wheedon [see Buffy].

No casting news yet, but who could play Wonder Woman? Depending on how old WW is supposed to be in the movie Buffy alums Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan might be too old. Summer Glau in Serenity proved she can kick ass, but I have difficulty seeing her in the costume. You could always go with an unknown like they did for Batman Begins.
