Retro-Blog: Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman

Now that Marvel Comics has shown that superheroes can be done right with the X-Men and Spiderman movies, DC has hopefully finally learned their lesson and has enlisted some serious talent to make some serious comic book films. First of all, Christopher Nolan (Memento) wrote and directed Batman Begins (opening June 17). Second, Bryan Singer (X-Men) has been hired to do Superman Returns (slated for June 30, 2006). And finally, announced the day before yesterday (though rumors had been flying long before that), we find out that Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will be writing and directing Wonder Woman.

Ever since X-Men came out in 2000, I've been wondering when DC was going to turn around their Batman failings and come up with something good. Well, it appears to be on the horizon.
