The world needs a Wonder Woman movie and “iZombie” and “Veronica Mars” co-writer and co-producer Diane Ruggiero-Wright wants to bring it to us. In a recent San Diego Comic Con interview with Comic Book Resource, Ruggiero-Wright expressed a desire to write a film for the super heroine.
“All I want to do in the world is Wonder Woman,” she said in the interview. Ruggiero-Wright is constantly bringing it up to DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, trying to pitch him ideas in hopes that he’ll give her the project. “I staple him to things and I’m like, ‘Let me pitch you Wonder Woman.’ And he’s like, ‘You know it’s already happening. They’re filming it right now,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, but…'”
Though Ruggiero-Wright might not be able to pen the first film, there’s hope for her involvement in a sequel. Personally, I think she’d be a brilliant choice for the franchise. Wonder Woman is about as strong of a female character as you can get and if there’s anyone who can give us that, it’s Ruggiero-Wright. “iZombie” and “Veronica Mars” are just proof of what she can do and it would be nice to see a female writer behind the project, rather than Jason Fuchs whose only real claims to fame are “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” “Pan,” and “Flipper.” Not exactly female centric films. It’s exciting to see Wonder Woman’s film finally being worked on for a 2017 release, but having Ruggiero-Wright behind it would make it so much cooler.
While she might not be writing the film, Ruggiero-Wright is working on a Wonder Woman digital comic which will most likely be part of DC’s digital series “Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman.” Only time will tell if Ruggiero-Wright gets more of the Amazon work she craves and the world deserves.
