After numerous failed attempts, Wonder Woman may still have her chance in the spotlight as Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have said that she is "one of their top three priorities".

Buffy creator Joss Whedon was working on a 2007 feature which was cancelled and that was followed by David E. Kelley's 2011 failed TV pilot.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, President of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson said: "We have to get her right, we have to. She is such an icon for both genders and all ages and for people who love the original TV show and people who read the comics now."

She also said: "What you do in TV has to be different than what you do in features. She has been, since I started, one of the top three priorities for DC and for Warner Bros. We are still trying right now, but she's tricky."

She added: "I think one of the biggest challenges at the company is getting that right on any size screen. The reasons why are probably pretty subjective - she doesn't have the single, clear, compelling story that everyone knows and recognises.

"There are lots of facets to Wonder Woman, and I think the key is, how do you get the right facet for that right medium?
