So what does this mean for the version of WONDER WOMAN that WB and Silver were developing with Whedon writing the script and directing? If Silver is to be believed, the acquisition of the script will have no impact on Whedon's planned WONDER WOMAN. For one, the spec script takes place in the 40s while Whedon's is modern day and Silver, apparently, has no interest in making a period piece. So why buy the script then?

Otherwise anyone could write a WONDER WOMAN script and have it picked up by Silver. Also telling is the word that Silver and WB execs were "impressed" by Jennison and Strickland's script. Perhaps they just wanted to buy the script and keep them aboard for future projects? Interesting. And as they say in the news world, developing...
