It's official: After lengthy negotiations, Joss Whedon has signed on to write and direct Warner Bros.' live-action film adaptation of Wonder Woman. "Wonder Woman is the most iconic heroine of our time," Whedon says, "but in a way, no one has met her yet." Au contraire. I met her last week on the Gilmore Girls set, although she was assuming her secret identity, Lauren Graham. "I think it's a great idea," Graham told me of her possible casting. "Did you see my stunt in The Pacifier? I'm clearly made to be a superhero." And she's self-deprecating, too! What more could you want?
