'Green Lantern' Scribe Michael Goldenberg To Pen 'Wonder Woman'

There has been a lot of talk around "Wonder Woman" for the past year or so, but not much action. On the television side, NBC tried to kickstart a series with Adrianne Palicki in the lead, but it was met with terrible reviews and was denied the stamp of fanboy approval, as that crucial segment criticized nearly every aspect of the production. And through the "Drive" press rounds, Nicolas Winding Refn continued talking up his desire to make a feature film, but there is nothing formal in place. The director hinted that if he did a good job with "Logan's Run," Warner Bros. might give him the keys to the DC Comics character, but there hasn't been much heard on that sci-fi reboot either in a while. However, it does seem the movie is continuing to brew at the studio.

There has been a lot of talk around "Wonder Woman" for the past year or so, but not much action. On the television side, NBC tried to kickstart a series with Adrianne Palicki in the lead, but it was met with terrible reviews and was denied the stamp of fanboy approval, as that crucial segment criticized nearly every aspect of the production. And through the "Drive" press rounds, Nicolas Winding Refn continued talking up his desire to make a feature film, but there is nothing formal in place. The director hinted that if he did a good job with "Logan's Run," Warner Bros. might give him the keys to the DC Comics character, but there hasn't been much heard on that sci-fi reboot either in a while. However, it does seem the movie is continuing to brew at the studio.

Also mentioned in Variety's report about "Gangster Squad" writer Will Beall being hired to pen the script for "Justice League," is a little nugget that Michael Goldenberg has been hired to pen "Wonder Woman." Goldenberg does have a history at WB, penning "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and perhaps most crucially, the awful "Green Lantern." At one point, Goldenberg was hired to write "Green Lantern 2" but that was before the movie came out, and we presume plans for a sequel have long been scrapped.

No word exactly on when we'll see these various DC properties on the big screen -- it could be few years off -- but clearly WB are making sure they have lots of options to choose from. And with Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel" being their only comic movie on the horizon after this summer's "The Dark Knight Rises," we presume at least one of these efforts (or maybe even "The Flash" which has also been developing) will be pushed further up the development queue.
