With the successes of the Spiderman trilogy and the new Batman films, comic book movies are being taken very seriously now, much to the delight of some of us geeks. But there's been a lack of big-budget female superhero movies (we're not counting that piece of crap Elektra ). It would make sense that a Wonder Woman movie be made, and it was in the works for a while, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon set to pen the script. But Whedon departed from the project because there was no female lead ever attached to the film. The closest thing we have right now is this straight-to-DVD animated movie, which comes out January 2009, with Kerri Russell providing the voice for Wonder Woman. Trailer above.
