Years before he wrote and directed ‘The Avengers’, Joss Whedon was tasked with penning a Wonder Woman script for DC and Warner Bros. The movie never got made, but certainly fans wonder what could’ve been with Whedon’s take on Princess Diana.
In 2005, San Diego Comic-Con featured a promotional poster for the film by Adam Hughes (‘Wonder Woman’, ‘Catwoman’). The poster and Hughes’ original drawing was up for sale on eBay as a benefit auction for Clydene Nee, the coordinator of the Artist Alley at San Diego Comic-Con. Nee has kidney failure, and the funds from the sale will aid with health care costs. The winning bid was a whopping $2,225.00.
Here’s a description of the items:
This auction is for one (1) Wonder Woman artwork set by renowned comic book artist Adam Hughes, who has done work for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and many other top tier companies. It features a color print that was created as a promo for a potential, and sadly defunct, Joss Whedon Wonder Woman movie and was available at San Diego Comic Con 2005. Also included is the ORIGINAL and signed pencil and pen sketch of the finished product. Amazing and one of a kind art pieces, a must for any Wonder Woman fan!
This and other art pieces I have for sale now are part of a benefit auction for Clydene Nee, who is suffering from kidney failure. The money will go to help support her healthcare and living expenses. Clydene has worked in the comic book industry and is a long time and loved member of the art community.
Take a look below:
With the instant success Whedon had with Marvel, I’m sure Warner Bros and DC are kicking themselves for shelving the project. From the look of the poster, the costume is the much more similar to the Lynda Carter outfit which many fans seems to prefer over what Gal Gadot will be wearing.
What do you think? Based on the poster, would you have loved to see Whedon’s version of Wonder Woman?
