A little modern history of the cinematic Diana Prince

Lynda Carter (and producer Douglas Cramer) showed that success on the screen for the golden age superheroine was possible, but it took awhile to make it happen after Carter's series stopped in 1979.

An earlier Wonder Woman effort was made in the 1960s when Batman TV Show producer William Dozier tinkered with the idea of a WW Show in the light-humor style of the Adam West TV program, but Dozier's short WW pilot was primitive and steered away from the comics character essentials (it can be found on youtube), and the proposed show wasn't developed further.

In 1974 there was a Cathy Lee Crosby starring version with a Wonder Woman TV Movie set in themodern era and without the classic stars-and eagle-tights costume. This did no take the character any further but was the seedbed (with fundamental changes) for the Lynda Carter show that followed in 1975.

1996, in the wake of the Batman films from Tim Burton (and the high-grossing sequels), Ivan Reitman (he produced the original Ghostbusters film) was developing a Wonder Woman project which eventually morphed into an effort by producer Jon Cohen (he later co-wrote Spielberg's 2001 Minority Report) but Cohen's version did not get beyond preliminaries either.

By 2001, Sandra Bullock was the most mentioned name on the incubating Wonder Woman movie project led by producer Joel Silver. Other actresses were also tagged as being vaguely connected (Rachel Bilson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lucy Lawless, Mariah Care, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles, Megan Fox), either because they themselves wanted to be candidates, or had been approached by Silver's Silver Pictures production company, or because the gossip industry had tossed their names into the WW vat.

Scriptwriting churned along in the usual Hollywood fashion, and by 2005 the whole original premise and potential actress roster had changed with Joss Whedon now involved (actress names associated with him were Morena Baccarin and Priyanka Chopra), but his outline of what he wanted to do was rejected by the powers that be when he showed it to them, and by 2007 the Wonder Woman movie had changed again, with Whedon gone and a new script bought by Silver depicting Diana Prince's first contact with "man's world" taking place circa World War II. In 2008 this was junked and the scriptwriters (Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland) were penning a modern day reversion of their ideas for Silver.

In 2009 DC /Warners brought out an animated Wonder Woman film featuring Keri Russell doing the voice work, and the film was well-liked by the fan-base, and was based primarily on George Perez's 1987 version of the character from his "Gods and Mortals" series of stories. Bruce Timm was one of the producers.

In 2011, the Adrianne Palicki TV series was begun for NBC, but failed to get backing and went no further than the pilot. In 2012 Warners was trying to get another Wonder Woman TV series off the ground to be titled Amazon, but it did not come to fruition either.
