We've seen almost every notable comic book figure made into a big budget popcorn movie, but alas, our invisible jet-traveling, lasso-wielding sexy heroine has never made it to the silver screen.


What woman (and a few men) hasn't put on the boots, the wig, padded their bra and dressed up as WW for Halloween? At 70, she's a strong, independent woman, so why hasn’t the character translated to the big screen?
