Feature Detail

The Wonder Woman movie is coming to us soon and it really has been a long time coming. Compared to Batman, Superman and even much lesser known male heroes, Wonder Woman hasn’t appeared in very many adaptations. She’s only had one show focused solely on her and sadly hasn't even gotten an animated series to call her own. However, she’s appeared in several ensemble series as a major character and even with such scant media appearances, she’s made a huge impact on pop culture.

So let’s take a look at all the tv show and movie adaptations of Wonder Woman so far and rank them from worst to best. To keep things simple, we’re going to limit these to shows and movies where Wonder Woman has played a starring role at least briefly (as in she’d had episodes or extended sequences where she could qualify as a “main” character), so bits like her cameos in Young Justice or The Lego Movie don’t count. Video games have also been kept out of the mix because things would just get too lengthy and confusing.

What did these adaptations do wrong and what did they do right? We’ll discuss this as we go through the list and hope that the upcoming movie learns the right lessons and ends up high on the list!
