Will Gail Simone write the new Wonder Woman story?

When James Gunn replied to a fan that he agrees that Wonder Woman is a rich character and how her inclusion in movies as a supporting character adds depth to the plot. The Co-CEO tweeted “Agreed. Working on it.” And in another tweet, Gunn clarified that DC Studios is working on an animated series because there is not enough content for The Goddess of Truth.

Even though nothing is announced about an animated series, it is possible that Gail Simone might work in the animated series because she is known for work in renowned DC Comics such as Birds of Prey, Batgirl, and many more and she is the longest-running female writer of Wonder Woman. The artist expressed her interest to work in the series after she replied to James Gunn’s tweet, asking him to call her.


Simone would be a great choice for the animated series because she has worked on the character for a significant duration and her approach to the character is perfect which gives her life. Moreover, it would be appropriate to give her an important role in the series because of her passion and love for the character, and she knows what makes The Princess of Themyscira so special.
