Warner Bros. CEO Says ‘We Need To Get Wonder Woman On The Big Screen Or TV’

Fans who are clamoring for a Wonder Woman movie just gained a pretty big ally in the form of Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara.

Speaking at an entertainment law conference this weekend, Tsujihara told the gathered crowd that the studio’s lack of superhero movies outside of the Superman and Batman franchises was a “missed opportunity,” and expressed his desire to focus on developing a Wonder Woman project, saying “We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.”

Quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, Tsujihara assured those in attendance that the studio has “huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV.” We’ve seen evidence to support this, as television series based on both the Flash and John Constantine have recently been announced, with the former spinning out of the CW’s Arrow, the second season of which begins on Wednesday.

But the big takeaway from this conference, for many, will be Tsujihara’s desire to produce a Wonder Woman project, as it would appear he’s disappointed that has yet to happen. Recent attempts to bring the DC Comics hero to other media have mostly failed. While the direct to DVD Wonder Woman animated feature was one of the more critically celebrated in that current line, the David E. Kelly helmed Wonder Woman television pilot was turned down by NBC, and the The CW passed on the proposed Amazon television series, which was being produced by Allan Heinberg.
