Female Superhero Linky

Wonder Woman fan-made trailer. How can it be 2013 and still there’s never been a big film featuring a woman action hero kicking bad guys around like this? Or even a medium film? (Am I forgetting one?)

  1. Because I accidentally hit “publish” just before midnight instead of just after. I’m going to change it now just because.

  2. Aw, thanks for the link Morgue! I’ve been by and done a red-faced spell-check in your honour. Mis-spelled TARDIS? I’ll hand in my fanbadge now…

    The lack of a WW film is one of the great mysteries of modern movies. David E Kelley’s trashtastic tv pilot from a couple of years ago and Joss Whedon’s walking away to do Avengers may have been instrumental?

  3. I’ve had people mention Russ Meyer flicks, Tomb Raider, Elektra, Supergirl and Kill Bill as potential woman-action-hero films. For me, though, none of them feel like they fill the niche that a Wonder Woman film does. Maybe the reason is, 7-year-old girls could go and see Wonder Woman and come out with big grins on their faces? I dunno. But yeah, surely something has to happen for WW soon…

    I’m loving the activity at zeus blog right now!
