President of DC Comics gives insight into future movies
Diane Nelson, who is the current president of DC COMIC has done a lot for the comic book company in recent years.
Thus far she has revitalized the brand and made the company once more a competitive rival to market leader Marvel comics.
In a new interview with Hollywood Reporter Nelson discussed a few key issues such as plans for future movies as well as the reason why we haven’t seen a Wonder Woman movie.
When it comes to discussing some her personal picks for potential movies Nelson revealed some surprising choices.
“Sandman is right on top. I think it could be as rich as the Harry Potter universe,” Nelson said. “Fables. Metal Men. Justice League. And yes, I’m going to say it: Aquaman.”
When asked about asked about DC’s difficulty in developing a live-action Wonder Woman franchise in the wake of previous fumbles with a Joss Whedon-led movie and the terrible David E. Kelly TV pilot. Nelson was refreshingly straight forward.
“The reasons why are probably pretty subjective: She doesn’t have the single, clear, compelling story that everyone knows and recognizes,” Nelson explains, echoing comments Whedon said when he was developing a Wonder Woman screenplay. “There are lots of facets to Wonder Woman, and I think the key is, how do you get the right facet for that right medium? What you do in TV has to be different than what you do in features.”
Nelson went on to reveal that the development of Wonder Woman for a live-action role, either TV or in film, has been “one of the top three priorities” for DC and Warner Bros. since she took over at DC.
