Diana Prince, Vampire Slayer

Hold onto your bullets and bracelets, fanboys and fangirls.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon just inked a pact to write and direct the new Wonder Woman film for Warner Bros. I can't envision a better man for the job.

But wouldn't it be cool to see the world's greatest heroine brought to the silver screen by a female director? I'd bet Kari Skogland (Liberty Stands Still), Mimi Leder (The Peacemaker, Deep Impact), or Kathryn Bigelow (Near Dark, Blue Steel) would do a bang-up job.

Oh, who am I kidding? This whole post is just an excuse to show off this gorgeous pinup of everyone's favorite Amazon, stylishly rendered by Brazilian artist Alex Miranda.

I'll predict now that the first guy in line to design the movie poster will be Eisner Award-winning cover artist Adam Hughes, who probably draws the sweetest Diana this side of Paradise Island. You heard it from your Uncle Swan first.
