I didn't read the whole series, but I did read some of them. Yes, the original TV series was a bit campy. That's why I'm hoping Hollywood does this
justice. I wanna watch a super hero movie that leaves me wanting more for a change.
I myself never started as a fan of Wonder Woman. At the time I was more into the X-men with respect to comic books but George Perez and Dick Giordano
with their wonderful cover artwork finally rooked me into following the storyline. As for the original series I will say only this:
Had SUCH a crush on Lynda Carter back in the day and despite the storyline NEVER liked Robert Conrad in the male lead role. He always bugged me to no
"Knock it off my shoulder...I DARE you!"
That said I hope they will stay true to the original story. Hollywood had demonstrated that "reboots" really only appeal to a younger audience and not
the "diehard fans" for lack of a better description. the original appeal of such remakes always loses something in the "translation".
Exactly. Although I suspect they will need a good actress, and a few really good stunt women built similar to her. Too bad I'm not a
billionaire. I'd just pull together a team of diehard fans, writers, etc. and do it myself. Hey, that could be fun.
Nothing wrong with that but I personally would rather see a complete unknown cast in the lead role than the "usual suspects" that H-wood always seems
to saddle the movie-goers with. Time for some new blood.
That would probably be Beckinsale. She's good at playing the kick ass female role. As in Underworld series. But Kate could never play WW. Not
tall enough, or busty enough. She also doesn't have the personality, imo.
We are on the same page...again. Kate is good in the "strong female lead" roles she chooses but at 5' 6"-ish something-or-other" she is ANYTHING but
Amazonian in dimensions. They'd have to hire a VERY short cast to pass her off as 6' anything. That said, I am not even sure Gina Carano can pull
something like that off...a bit too "butchy" for my tastes.
-Peace be with you sir-
