Would a Wonder Woman movie really outdo Man of Steel?

That's what Motley Fool seems to think, as they talk about the possibilities that WB will make a movie based on WW:
In Time Warner's (NYSE: TWX ) pantheon of DC Comics characters, none stand so tall as Superman and Batman. But what about Wonder Woman? The Amazon princess could out-earn Man of Steel if given a real chance by Warner executives, says Fool contributor Tim Beyers in the following video.

The right story would take advantage of the viewing public's fascination not only with Greek mythology but also powerful women. Look at The Hunger Games. Jennifer Lawrence's appeal as bow-wielding heroine Katniss Everdeen earned nearly $700 million at the worldwide box office for Lions Gate [...]
It's hard to say if a WW film would become the blockbuster we'd hope it could be. As I suggested before, it depends mainly on how well executed the story is, and how much audiences are interested in and up to going. Only that way will studios even be encouraged to keep trying to make these kind of adventure films with female leads.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
