When talking about Warner Bros. plans for DC properties, Kevin Tusjihara says, 'We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.'
Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tusjihara has dropped a hint on the studio's next possible tentpole project. He gave the scoop during a lunchtime keynote interview at a recent entertainment law conference, expressing his keen interest in making a new take on Wonder Woman.
Calling the lack of DC superhero movies other than Batman and Superman franchise "a missed opportinuty," Tusjihara revealed the studio had "huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV." He dished, "We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."
Marvel is currently planning a female superhero flick as well. "Thor" star Natalie Portman recently said, "There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming - I have heard is coming."
While waiting for the female-centric films to come to fruition, moviegoers can catch "Thor: The Dark World" on November 8 this year and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on April 4, 2014. The next DC film "Man of Steel 2" that will feature the first encounter of Batman and Superman, however, will not be ready until July 17, 2015.
