"Wonder Woman"… As A Feminist Rom-Com?

Appearing at an event for the Blu-ray/DVD release of "The Heat," that film's director Paul Feig revealed that he is one of several filmmakers who've recently pitched to Warner Bros. Pictures and idea for a "Wonder Woman" movie.

He tells IGN that his version wasn't a superhero epic. Instead, it's described as a light action-comedy where Diana of Themyscira "keeps hitting the glass ceiling" of the superhero world.

Batman and Superman are portrayed as chauvinistic jerks. While it sounds like an outright parody, Feig says the tone is akin to the first "Iron Man" film, and compared his take on the character to suffragist playwright Cicely Hamilton.

He readily admits though that his concept didn't fly because "fans can be quite protective of their characters and any changes that are made to them".
