As such, he has been working on this analysis of the film as a reflection of the times that it was created in. While initially a bit unwieldy, Brian has pared down his thoughts into a length that’s much more manageable*. Enjoy his look at the unintentional timeliness of this film…

My good friend Ethan, of Extremist Movie Debate, asked me to fill in for his regular movie-sparring partner Joe last week. We went head-to-head over the recent release of Justice League. If you’re unfamiliar with the format of their series, they flip a coin to decide which stance that they have to take on their chosen movie (love or hate) and then must argue their point through a series of questions and discussions. I’ll let the video show where I came down. Regardless, this was an incredibly difficult film to to get passionate about. There are plenty of movies and shows that I’ve loved or hated and enjoyed fiercely debating but Justice League is so incredibly, inoffensively average that it took every ounce of my amazing acting talent to muster even the slight enthusiasm I have here.

Wonder Woman (2011 unaired pilot)

Why is Wonder Woman seemingly so hard to adapt? She’s one of DC’s trinity of main characters (alongside Superman and Batman) but is the only one to not have a live-action film franchise, let alone multiple which the other 2/3’s have. In fact, the last truly successful depiction of the character in expanded media (that didn’t share billing with some other hero) was way back in the 70’s with Linda Carter in the lead. Since then, there have been attempts at brining her to the big screen with Joss Whedon’s failure in 2005-06 being the most notable. A live-action television series based on the Wonder Woman comic suffered the same fate of constant re-writes and non-starts until 2010 when David E. Kelly got a pilot commissioned at NBC.
