[Movies] Warner Bros. CEO: 'We Need to Get Wonder Woman on Film or TV'

Kevin Tsujihara says that DC has been a missed opportunity...
It sounds like we may be getting a Wonder Woman movie or series after all. Warner Bros. and DC, as you may know, have been trying to get a film or television series starring the iconic DC superheroine off the ground for years no to no avail. One film project with Joss Whedon at the helm fell through several years back; a deeply unfortunate David E. Kelly TV pilot was passed on by NBC in 2011 and a series at the CW titled Amazon stalled and wasn't picked up this past season. When asked about it this summer, DC president Diane Nelson said "We are still trying right now, but she's tricky."
That may change, though. THR reports that Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara was part of a lunchtime keynote interview at the USC Gould School of Law on Saturday and discussed the DC Comics properties as potential films and series.
While on the subject, Tsujihara said that the lack of superhero movies at Warner Bros. (other than Superman and Batman) had been a "missed opportunity" and said that they have "huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV." He specifically noted, "We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."
There was a rumor late last month that Wonder Woman may appear in Man of Steel 2, but still no confirmation on that. Amazon is also still in development at the CW.
