It's uncertain if many DC books will be adapted to live action

This short article on Entertainment Weekly says that the new take on Wonder Woman in live action for TV has been shelved again, just like the proposals to turn the Amazonian princess into a movie. The networks don't seem to want it, mostly because of the potential costs.

I was about to suggest selling it in syndication; it worked well for Star Trek's spinoffs back in the day. But then I thought, why bother at all? It won't help the fact that the source material is being destroyed even as I write about this, and since all these movie and television licensing deals is about the only thing Time Warner, as owner of DC, seems interested in these days, it only makes me feel discouraged even from movie and TV adaptations.

And even if this and other DC series are finally adapted to live action, who knows if it'll be successfully in terms of story quality? That's surely the main problem with these showbiz projects.

Why live-action? Why not animation?

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.
