It's Official: Joss Whedon to Write/Direct 'Wonder Woman'

Warner Bros. has announced a deal with Joss Whedon to write and direct a "Wonder Woman" film.

"Wonder Woman is the most iconic female heroine of our time, but in a way, no one has met her yet," Whedon says in the Warner Bros. press release. "What I love most about icons is finding out what's behind them, exploring the price of their power. When Joel [Silver, 'Wonder Woman' producer] and I began discussing the character, I realized there is a woman behind the legend who is very fascinating, very uncompromising, and in her own way, almost vulnerable. She's someone who doesn't belong in this world, and since everyone I know feels that way about themselves, the character clicked for me."

Whedon neglected to mention -- but it's certainly implied -- that Wonder Woman also boasts an invisible jet and a magic truth lasso, which are both pretty damn cool.

So now the focus shifts to the starring role. Sorry. Check that. The focus shifts to rumors about the starring role.
