Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Marti Noxon would love a shot to write for WW. In an interview with FEAR.net, she talks about her wish:
You've always had a penchant for strong female characters. Do you have a dream project? Do you want to, like, create the next female action hero?
I would love to. To be honest - as scary as it is - part of me wishes I could take a crack at Wonder Woman. There was a moment where it looked like I might get involved in the TV version. She is one of the few in the canon that hasn't been exploited. There are reasons for that; there is stuff in her mythology that are really silly. The costume - she's in a star-spangled bathing suit! And she uses a "lasso of truth" and rides around in an invisible plane. But they don't have to be that way. I definitely have a point of view about that. If I could do it, and nobody could "yell at me"... if the internet wasn't poised to explode in hate, no matter what you did, I would be out there, really pushing for it.
I would more faith in Marti than David E. Kelley anyday.
