You don't need to wrangle us with a Lasso of Truth to get us to admit there's plenty of potential in a Wonder Woman video game. Couple the 83 years of her comic book history with Monolith Productions' development prowess, and Wonder Woman could be a video game for the ages - emphasis on the could

Announced back in 2021, the proposed open-world Wonder Woman game would see multiple iterations of Diana Prince take on a new threat. Presumably exploring the backdrop of Themyscira, we know Monolith's infamous Nemesis System will play a big part, but to be honest, that's about it for Wonder Woman info.

Wonder Woman reportedly in a 'troubled state'

Speaking on the Kinda Funny Gamescast, Greg Miller warns that Wonder Woman is in a "troubled state," suggesting we won't be seeing the game in the near future. Although Miller doesn't pitch himself as an industry insider, his knowledge of gaming has us worried about Wonder Woman. 

Miller said, "Here you go, you want it? You want the exclusive? I'll give you my Jeff Grubb information. In the past year – cause I'll leave it ambiguous – I have talked to an insider, who was like, 'This game's troubled.' That's it, that’s all I'll say. I don't hold out hope that it’s in a place to show something."

As Blessing Adeoye Jr. points out, the June 8 Summer Game Fest would be the perfect time for WB head David Zaslav to show "signs of life," and with it being three years since we first saw the game's trailer, Wonder Woman is in danger of being left in the dust. Of course, Warner Bros. has bigger fish to fry right now.

While Warner Bros. Interactive has had great success with Hogwarts Legacy, its superhero slate has been less fruitful. After the disappointment of Gotham Knights as something of a spiritual successor to Rocksteady's Arkham games, we then had a full-blown Arkhamverse continuation in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Much like we saw the DC Extended Universe crumble on the silver screen, it seems Warner Bros. is struggling to nail its video game output. Similar to how the DCEU tried to capitalise on the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems WB can't recapture the magic of Insomniac's Spider-Man

Kill the Justice League reportedly led to a $200 million hit in WB revenue, so you can understand why it's important to get Wonder Woman right. Like Diana Prince's cinematic future remains unclear, don't expect her to be polishing her golden armour anytime soon.
