Much denial, much backtracking, never said it, out of context, blah blah blah.
But now, we hear the same thing from Bruce Timm, when asked by Think McFly Think about possible sequels to any of the animated DC DVDs. They were planning to do a sequel to Wonder Woman, but...
Wonder Woman’s sales started out extremely slow and then over time were eventually able to catch up to probably Justice League Frontier. The Exec’s decided because it wasn’t able to sell quickly right away, where as Justice League was, that there wouldn’t be any more female super hero films right now. We were developing and hoping to get started on a Batgirl film based on Year One, but because of Wonder Woman’s slow sales start, that won’t be happening now.
Wow. "There won't be any more female super hero films right now." Wow.
Expect much denial, much backtracking, etc.
But I doubt Bruce Timm would make that up. And that makes twice in two years that someone at Warners has declared they don't want to make movies, or cartoons, or DVDs starring women.
Way to go, jackasses. Wake me up when you get to the 20th century. I have a feeling the 21st century is out of your reach right now...
