Sure puts things into perspective, huh?
I’ve seen way too many posts like this, so I’m going to settle this once and for all
DC isn’t going to make a Wonder Woman for this single reason, right here:
Nobody knows enough about her
When people think of famous superheroes, they can usually name some villains along with them. [….] Who is her arch-nemesis? Who could betray her at youth? Who would be a real threat to her? You don’t know, I don’t know, nobody knows! [….]
Wonder Woman isn’t popular, and that is why she isn’t going to get a movie. And before anyone says ‘a movie could make her popular’, there would need to be an audience to see that movie.
Dude they are making an ANT MAN MOVIE
Yep. They are. Hey, you know what other superhero wasn’t well known to the general public before 2008?
I’m totally serious. He was a B-list character at best. And so what did Marvel do? They created demand. They hired an A-list actor and treated that movie like a goddamn event.
DC, on the other hand, is thinking like you are. Trying to guess what the audience wants, follow their expectations. Remind me, between Marvel and DC, which one of them is breaking box office records with their approach, again?
Nobody knows who Wonder Woman’s villains are? This is a total nonissue. You know who she fights? She fights bad guys. There. Done.
Wonder Woman isn’t popular? Then why are people clamoring for her to have her own movie? (They are. Oh, yes they are. And you know it, otherwise, what exactly are you responding to with your post?)
Who knows about Wonder Woman? Everyone. Seriously, go stand out on a street corner and ask people who walk by if they can name one female superhero. Just one. And they will. And it will be goddamn Wonder Woman.
