EW: There are a lot of female superheroines in comics, but why so few on film? Joss, you tried to make a Wonder Woman movie for several years, right?
WHEDON: Studios will tell you: A woman cannot headline an action movie. After ‘The Hunger Games’ they might stop telling you that a little bit. Watever you think of the movie, it’s done a great service.
JOHANSSON: A lot of female-superhero movies just suck really badly.
WHEDON: The suck factor is not small.
JOHANSSON: There are a couple that have worked-ish, don’t you think?
HEMSWORTH: Angelina Jolie tends to do it pretty well, as a dominant female.
JACKSON: They got to get ‘The Pro’ to the screen! I love that book!
JOHANSSON: What’s The Pro?
JACKSON: It’s a comic book about a hooker who gets superpowers!
JOHANSSON: That is exactly the problem right there!
JACKSON: It’s a really dope book, though.
JOHANSSON: I’d have to wear pasties to greenlight any of these movies.

There could have been a Whedon Wonder Woman movie, y’all. Meditate on that for a minute.
Yep. I think about that from time to time.
Joss, who gave us Buffy, wanted to do Wonder Woman. He gets it. Studio said no.
Now he’s a Marvel.
…Wonder Woman is never going to make it to the big screen. And that hurts my heart.
