David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman As Bad As Expected

Bleeding Cool has a limited script review. Very limited. And yes it’s Ally McBeal with superpowers Between the ice cream sleepovers and the pining for Steve Rogers and Beyonce flavored action scenes, this will set back Wonder Woman to the 50’s.

Remember the girl power scene in the awful reboot of Bionic Woman. This sounds every bit as awkward. There’s even a “You go girl” mixed in there. It’s less about superheroes, more like another excuse for David E. Kelley to create a hideously dysfunctional female character who’s going to spend a lot of time being uncomfortable.

I don’t see a law firm or any obvious issue exploration, but I’m confident it’s there. It can’t not be, in a David E. Kelley project. If he can’t have people screaming at each over a current issue, then what would he write about. Do monkeys have souls? Is it ethical to buy products made by underpaid workers? Can an invisible plane be used to violate civil rights. All this and more.

    And the worst part will be the Joss Whedon fluffers who are sure to dance on the ashes of this show, braying and beating their chests that he would have made a superawesome version of Wonder Woman.

    Bet on it.

    I think they should collaborate on a show together. I really want to see a script full of their trademark dialogue. It would tear a hole through the time space cutesiness continuum.

    The end result of that would be a James Cameron show.

    I’ll pass. Or dispose of said show with a device that begins with the phrase, “Commence Primary Ignition.” 🙂

    Now you’re making me imagine Avatar as scripted by Whedon.
