C'MON HOLLYWOOD: We need more female superheroes!

Jul. 12, 2011by: Stephanie Cooke

At this point in time, weve seen just about every comic book to ever be created, come to life. If youre trying to figure out what has been done over the years, I suggest you go ahead and make a list of films that havent been done instead it would be much shorter. I love comic book movies. I can guarantee that if there is a comic book movie coming out, there is about a 99% chance that I want to see it. Im almost always disappointed with how it turns out, but lately, comic book movies have been getting better.

With that being said, there are virtually no female comic book heroes being put on the big screen. I mean, we had Elektra, but she was a joke, right? I mean seriously now, Jennifer Garner as the saucy superhero Elektra? She was terrible in both Daredevil and her very own self-titled spin-off. So terrible that Im going to stop talking about it and try to forget that Elektra ever happened. With Elektra out of the way (and hopefully soon out of my mind), that leaves pretty well one female superhero left: Wonder Woman. WW is the first female superhero that pretty well comes to everybodys mind. I mean, we have Catwoman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, but theyre all characters coming from Batman. Wonder Woman is pretty well the only hero who has stood as her own and been a constant icon for women. Shes been around since December of 1941, and I must say, she looks damn good for her age.

I know that theres Supergirl and all, but in my opinion, I dont think she does as good of a job of standing alone as a superhero as Wonder Woman does.

How many years have we been hearing about a Wonder Woman movie in the works? They just never get the green light, which is seriously disappointing. I know that the Lynda Carter was hokey, but the movie doesnt have to be. I mean, even freaking Batman was hokey back then, but he got another chance - SEVERAL other chances, as a matter of fact. So why not Wonder Woman? Why does the Batman deserve another chance, while Wonder Woman has to fight to get the praise that she deserves?

I dont want to get all girl-power on you all here, but the ladies need an icon too. Sure, we have empowered women like Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin, but if politics or shooting bears and moose isnt your thing, then who do you turn to? Earlier this year, it was announced that a new Wonder Woman show would be happening. Fans immediately got into a frenzy discussing what the costume would be, who would play Wonder Woman and how the show would do. Obviously, many fans debated these topics, but the one thing that everyone could agree on was that Wonder Woman needed a modern touch, she needed an awesome job, a sexy social life and a just a whole new modern personality. It needed a fantastic team of writers and above all, a strong, classy female lead. A lead that women could look up to, I mean, Wonder Woman is an AMAZON people - that doesnt imply a size zero, anorexic supermodel to play the part. Think Lucy Lawless as Xena, only more Monica Bellucci-ish.

What fans got was the scrawny Adrianne Palicki. And the costume? Well, fans got gypped on that too. Last year, Wonder Woman got a rebooted costume for the comics. It took a while for me and other fans to get used to, most of us came around agreeing that it was time for a change and enjoying the modern look that the artists had given her. I think that the Wonder Woman writers were trying to base Palickis costume off of that, but it just came out freaking awful. Then they tried to fix it and it was even worse. Then, while the show was being filmed, the studio killed it and another Wonder Woman project went down the drain. Although, I must say that this one mightve been for the best.

Why is it such a horrible thing to want a movie centered on a strong female figure instead of getting stuck with damsels in distress or five freaking Twilight movies starring Kristen Stewart? Is Bella Swan really the female icon we want our young children to model themselves after? The girl who does nothing but cry in her room for months on end, has panic attacks and gets mildly suicidal when her sparkling-vampire boyfriend leaves her? And THEN proceeds to shack up with a werewolf in the absence of said sparkling vampire? The female film buffs of the world need this Hollywood. We need YOU to go forth and find a director, a writer(s) and an all-star cast to lead a smart, witty, clever and enjoyable movie featuring an icon that woman can look up to and boys can ogle at without shame.

Hollywood just won't gamble..

While I agree that Hollywood needs more female hero movies...The numbers don't justify the case with the studios.

Supergirl - Budget $35 - Gross $14
Ultraviolet - Budget $30 - Gross $18
Aeon Flux - Budget $62 - Gross $25
Catwoman - Budget $100 - Gross $40
Elektra - Budget $43 - Gross $24
Red Sonja - Budget $15 - Gross $7
Barb Wire - Budget $23 - Gross $3

DropDeadFred is right. Somehow female superheroes/comic book-based movies just don't perform well. Also, Tank Girl literally tanked and Barb Wire was a flop. However, good action movies with female lead like The Long Kiss Good Night and Salt performed quite well.

How about Reboot the Crow

with a female lead, a new character. It would be powerful and instead of retelling a classic movie we reignite a dead franchise with fresh material.

I'd be totally down for this, especially a Wonder Woman movie done right, or the introduction of Barbara Gordon/Oracle into the Bats universe. My biggest problem with the big female superheroes is how lazy the characters names appear to be. Batgirl? Let's make a female Batman! Supergirl? Boom, his female cousin! Spiderwoman, Batwoman, etc... Most of them were forced into existence because of equality, but they just tried to capitalize on an already established superhero and make it more

How about instead of pushing for "girl power" they get a great female character written.. then surround that project with talented, passionate people and we'll have a great female superhero movie.

Like TarantinoDork said, it's not about the sex it's about the character. We all love Ellen Ripley/Connor/Lara Croft/all of the female X-men.. hell, Underworld keeps going and Resident Evil is onto it's 5th movie with TWO female ass kicking leads! Quality>Sex... people are craving for a superheroine movie that's GREAT.. we just haven't gotten it yet.

This is basically what I've been preaching all this time. Batgirls and Supergirls aren't empowering, they're dimnishing because they're always the "worser" pick between the two. Women need more original characters like Wonder Woman and I'm glad Jim acknowledged her so much in this article.

The second thing I've been saying is that they need to do a superpowered woman. 'Batgirls' would be tough to do, because it would be hard to explain their success without a proper actress. I'm sorry but if

I'm sorry but if they don't have a Cynthia Rothrock, Linda Hamilton, Lucy Lawless or a Gina Carano type I'm not buying it... ever. Sorry, but there's no way a Zoe Saldana or a Angelina Jolie could take my ass and I can't even fight. Just don't get skinny supermodels

meh

The fact is, most guys don't care to see a female lead, unless she is hot and most women just don't care to see superhero movies. Kinda sucks to for you fan-girls but that's how it is. Only way that's going to change is if someone makes an absolutely outstanding movie, with a female superhero.

It is kinda sad thet the biggest female hero doesn't have her own movie. It can't be that hard to make a good Wonder Woman movie and do the character justice...

Well, maybe Nicolas Winding Refn will get his shot at trying a Wonder Woman film. With Wonder Woman's comic also starting with Brian Azzarello as the writer soon, perhaps the story or stories he writes will provide a good basis for a feature film.

It certainly is a tough sell, which is a shame. The closest we've seen to a profitable female hero was probably Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, which weren't very good, and that was a video game with a fanbase more interested in the characters

Personally, I say let Paul Dini write a Zatanna movie or TV show.

I blame Hollywood period. They instinctively despise the idea of leading actresses having any fun with their roles. Actresses are pressured into two stereotyped career 'tracks' if they want leading roles... serious sober dramatic work, or self-gratifying romantic comedies. You can either be Meryl Streep or Sandra Bullock. Its why we, as fanboys, love those actresses who buck that trend and mix it up with roles where they can be just as varied, complex, and fun as male counterparts. Rosario

Rosario Dawson, Heather Graham, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz. Marisa Tomei is one of the greatest actresses in Hollywood, but because she won an Oscar for playing a tough, funny as hell sexkitten...the Hollywood whisper campaign took over and created the zombie lie that she was overrated.

All it takes is one good movie

and this wouldn't even be an issue anymore. A +1 to anyone who wished the Joss Whedon Wonder Woman movie would have come together; that would have been a great fit and Whedon knows how to create an action heroine. Perhaps get the guys who wrote the script for the Warner Premiere animated Wonder Woman film on the case?

Couldn't agree more

This is one topic I'm very passionate about. WW is one of the all-time greatest, most iconic superheroes and it's embarrassing that we don't have a movie yet.
If you can't envision a WW movie working, you don't have an imagination, and if DC/WB can't, they're in the wrong business.

There's been a Witchblade movie in development for ages. She's my favorite female comic character, so I can't help but be optimistic about it. Done wrong, though, and we'll have another Bloodrayne or Catwoman on our hands.

I was just thinking about this last night. Going through female superheroes off the top of my head, it's hard finding anyone more popular and well known than WW.

Most of the well known ones are part of teams like X-Men or Fantastic 4. Though I wouldn't mind seeing a Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix movie. Have the X-Men play second fiddle to Ms. Grey.

I wouldn't mind seeing adventurous filmmakers taking a smaller, side character and making a whole film centered around her. It just has to be way

needs to be original

none of the female characters work bc most of them are female versions of a male character, catwoman, supergirl, batgirl they are just to catch the other half, they dont have any original stories or origins. Need more Long Kiss Goodnight or like Alias (as a movie). Hit girl could be cool now after the first, but i doubt we will ever see a really good woman superhero flick anytime soon.

thats bc there can and never will be a good version of wonder woman. You cant make truth lassos and invisible airplanes cool and the fact she doesnt actually have any powers or even an interesting origin story, same for all other female lead comics. Maybe they should do a sex and the city comic and then make a movie out of it bc those sucks now anyways.

I'd agree that DC/WB need to get their act together with a Wonder Woman movie. She's an important character in the DC Universe and they need to represent her effectively. A Wonder Woman movie handled well can kick as much ass as any superhero flick. Think of it like the action of 300 with the time-spanning sagas of something like Thor or Captain America, and you can see this character has a heap of potential. If they focus on an action-packed narative and avoid the camp elements, like the

I would like to see one also but I hate to say it, but I can't really think of any female leads right now that could hold an entire movie plus have the box office drawl that would be required for a studio to push the idea.

Sure we can have roles picked out for "X" actress and she could be perfect in it but still can't see the majority of the population (male and female) lining up at the box office.

Having a good movie would help. As someone listed below, superheroine flicks have been lousy as fuck, so nobody's going to line up.

I don't think the fact that it's a woman would affect whether people would line up or not.

Give us an ORIGINAL female super hero. The ones that exist (with the exception of the batman antiheros/villains that are women) are all lame caricatures based on old ideas about women.

They'll never do it, because they would never even make an original male superhero movie. But one can hope.

Stephanie, you're not a comic book fan are you. The first few sentences of your opening paragraph proves that. I could rattle off probably over a thousand titles that have never been made to a movie, and most likely never will. I understand the angle you were going with, but c'mon, to say that they've pretty much ALL been made into movies...that's just ridiculous.

I'm all for it BUT

the past has proven that women have a good amount of trouble leading an action movie believably. Very few women out there (who get the chance at least) manage to actually pull it off. It's always been that way, still continues to be that way and will probably stay that way - unfortunately.

So in that sense no, this is a bad idea - but if all the pieces fall into place, it coudl be a great idea. The only problem is the vast majority of women-lead action/adventure/etc. pictures fail and end up
