Joss Whedon’s ‘Wonder Woman’ Designs Revealed?

Last week, DC unveiled a new costume for Wonder Woman designed by superstar artist Jim Lee for the upcoming creative team of J. Michael Straczynski and artist Don Kramer.

Although the early fan response has been largely negative, the costume seems to resemble versions of her costume that could have been used in Joss Whedon’s “Wonder Woman” live-action adaptation.

Shawna Trpcic — a designer who has previously worked with Whedon on “Angel,” “Firefly,” “Serenity” and “Dollhouse” — recently posted four designs for her interpretation of Wonder Woman. While, none of her designs appear to have directly influenced the new costume by Lee, it’s worth noting that three of Trpcic’s designs would also have put Diana in pants.

“Tell DC this is what [you] want Wonder Woman to look like,” added Trpcic.

Back in 2005, Whedon was announced as the writer and director of a “Wonder Woman” feature film, which ultimately failed to escape development. Two years later, Whedon departed the project citing creative differences.

“I would go back in a heartbeat if I believed that anybody believed in what I was doing,” Whedon told the AV Club. “The lack of enthusiasm was overwhelming. It was almost staggering, and that was kind of from the beginning. I just don’t think my take on ‘Wonder Woman’ was ever to their liking. I wasn’t getting them to feel what they wanted to feel. They couldn’t describe what that was to me.”

Whedon is heavily rumored to be directing “The Avengers,” which will hit theaters in 2012.
