Warner Bros. chief on expanding the DC TV Universe and bringing Wonder Woman to the screen
Sunday, 6 October 2013
The studio made steps in the right direction this year with Man of Steel, but as the announcement of 2015's Batman vs. Superman has shown, WB appears reluctant to commit to any projects outside of their World's Finest comfort zone. Well, on the big screen at least - turning to television and we've seen several projects announced these past couple of months in the planned Arrow spin-off The Flash, the Jim Gordon-centred Gotham and the return of Hellblazer in Constantine.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Chief Executive Officer Kevin Tsujihara admitted that it's been a "missed opportunity" by the studio when it comes to making use of its DC characters to launch movie franchises beyond The Dark Knight and Man of Steel, although he went on to reveal that WB has "huge plans for a number of other DC properties on TV." And it seems that a certain Amazon Princess is a priority for the studio, with Tsujihara adding that, "We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV."
