Joel Silver, who was producing the now-stalled Wonder Woman movie, told reporters that the project has been placed on the back burner in light of another impending superhero film. “They’re going to make the Justice League movie, and we’re kind of pausing on Wonder Woman now,” Silver said in a news conference while promoting Fred Claus. “Let them go ahead and do that picture [first].”
The Amazon superhero from the DC Comics series will be a major part of the upcoming JLA. “And if that comes together, Wonder Woman will be a part of that story,” Silver said. “And then we’ll see where we go from there. But we struggled with it for a while. I hope that we can solve it and make it one day.”
Wonder Woman was originally to be written and directed by Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon. But he dropped out of the project because of creative differences with Silver and the studio. Since then, the movie has been moribund.
