A lot of people see Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as the DC triumvirate. Three popular superheroes that have endured for years and, whenever DC does a crossover, the three of them are almost always at the head of things.
Over the years, Batman and Superman have gotten lots of movie iterations. Batman has gotten ten movies, and Superman has gotten seven (eleven and eight, if you count Justice League). But Wonder Woman? Not so much. She was first introduced in 1941, but she didn’t get a live-action, big-budget movie until 2017. Granted, said movie was well received and made a lot of money at the box-office, but still. The movie’s sequel wasn’t anywhere near as much of a success, but that’s besides the point.
So…why didn’t Wonder Woman get a movie for so long? According to Wikipedia, people were trying to get a Wonder Woman movie off the ground in the 1990s, but what about before that? Superman: The Movie came out in 1978, and Adam West’s Batman movie was released in 1966. So…what was the hitch with Wonder Woman?
