Whedon's Wonder Woman

Script not cast comes first, no big bad.

Joss Whedon, writer and director of the Wonder Woman movie, told Now Playing magazine that neither him nor Warner Brothers have decided on a lead actress for the project.

"[Casting] is the last thing on my mind, and I'm happy to say it's the last thing on Warner Brothers' and [producer] Joel [Silver's] mind, too," Whedon said. "We've talked about whether it should be someone famous or an unknown. Ultimately there are advantages to both, so nobody's thinking about that. ... Except everybody."

Of the script, Whedon confirmed that the film would be set in the present day, but that Diana Prince would not be of this time.

Whedon told us not to expect a larger-than-life camp villain in the film:

"She doesn't have a villain as recognizable as [a Lex Luthor]. In fact, she doesn't have a lot of things as recognizable as a lot of the other heroes have. But that's not a problem, simply because she's basically based on Greek mythology, which opens up a world of interesting possibilities."
