WONDER WOMAN REPORT
This report has been many years in the making. My frustration with the absence of Wonder Woman on screen led me to it’s creation. I wanted to chart Wonder Womanʼs history in all forms of media and prove just how far her influence reaches. Contained in the report is a brief summary of her storyline, the history of Wonder Womanʼs film development, the various other mediums in which she has appeared, and a chart outlining the history of superhero stories on screen, as well as the budgets and grosses of these films. Over two years in the making, I chose April 15th, 2013 as the date for this reportʼs release because it is the same day as the release of Kristy Guevara-Flanaganʼs documentary Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines on PBS. As this film demonstrates, I am not alone in my frustration for more female role models in the media.
To help bring people together, we have set up a Facebook page where people can post their thoughts on what they would like to see in the film and their personal experiences with Wonder Woman. You can find and like the page here to show your support.
Additionally, we have set up a petition that people can sign to demand a Wonder Woman film NOW. The petition can be found here
