Movieline EXCLUSIVE: Nicolas Winding Refn Explains His Wonder Woman Movie

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn created something of a fanboy stir last month when he dropped hints about wanting to adapt Wonder Woman for the screen. Nevertheless, Refn does have his eye on the D.C. heroine whose route to the screen has been troubled, to say the least. He shared a few insights into his approach to the story, why it can rival Batman, and what kind of villain it really needs.


See the first official clip of Batman: Under the Red Hood, as Batman faces down a vicious new vigilante. Due out July 27, 2010.

Let's we've already had a Superman and Batman movie. Green Lantern is coming out next year, Flash and Wonder Woman are in the works. Aquaman probably isn't too far behind, considering that they already tried a TV pilot out on him. So which original JLA'er does that leave left? Should I even dream that big or just accept the inevitable disappointment now instead of later?

Yep. Martian Manhunter fans: The Cubs Fans of the Comic Book World.

Oh, and LOVED that golf cart...
