Give Wonder Woman an Animated Series

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


A Wonder Woman animated series is long overdue.

In her 75+ years of existence, Wonder Woman has become a feminist cultural icon and an advocate of social equity, equality and justice (yes, she punches Nazis, too). Furthermore, her inherent message of sisterhood inspires an intersectional feminist perspective—including the representation of LGBTQ women and women of color—that provides the potential for a powerful commentary in such an iconic mythology. But despite her cultural relevance, Wonder Woman has only been offered minimal opportunities on solo platforms in many forms of media. 

This becomes more apparent through a comparative analysis on the amount of live-action films, video games, animated features (films and shows) and live-action TV shows between Batman, Superman and Woman Woman. But for the sake of this petition, let's solely focus on animated features:

(Superman has also benefited from a heavy live-action TV presence, including the 4-season Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and the 10 season Smallville series,) 

***WONDER WOMAN***

Animated Shows: 

  • 0

Animated Films: 

  • 2009: Wonder Woman

(Wonder Woman has also never received a solo video game on any main console.) 

The disparities are clear and inarguable. Wonder Woman has been short-handed and has been perpetually overlooked by DC and Warner Brothers, to the extent that she's only received one animated film and not a single animated series. And digging more deeply, most of her stories have been told from the point of view of men.

This petition is not only to encourage DC to give Wonder Woman her own animated series (and hopefully other means of visibility in different media), but also to demand the intersectional representation of women both behind the scenes and on the show itself. This means that both queer women and women of color should have a clear voice on this show, which should be reflected in the series through the inclusion of characters like Nubia, Phillipus, and the bisexuality of Diana

If you believe that Wonder Woman should have her own animated series, share the hashtag #WonderWomanTAS and sign this petition. Maybe, just maybe, DC might listen.
