With all these superhero movies and sequels coming out, it will be no surprise if Wonder Woman makes its way to the big screen next.

DC Entertainment's president Diane Nelson told the August issue of The Hollywood Reporter that since she took over the company in 2009, a Wonder Woman project has been "one of the top three priorities for DC and for Warner Bros."

When asked if Wonder Woman is priority at the moment, Nelson replied, "We are still trying right now, but she's tricky."

The hard part about making Wonder Women a hit is figuring out how she is relatable to audiences.

"We have to get her right, we have to.... She doesn't have the single, clear, compelling story that everyone knows and recognizes," Nelson explained. "There are lots of facets to Wonder Woman, and I think the key is, how do you get the right facet for that right medium?"

The CW might beat DC Entertainment by bringing Wonder Woman back to the small screen in 2014. A pilot titled Amazon is still in works as the idea is being "redeveloped," according to The Huffington Post.

The TV series starring Lynda Carter as the original Wonder Woman ended after three seasons in 1979. Fast forward a couple years, Joss Whedon attempted to make it a feature film, but planning stopped in 2007.

"We never [wanted] to make the same movie...And it was a waste of [Warner Bros.] time because I had a lot of trouble writing - not just writing that, but writing at all," Whedon said in a 2007 interview with Entertainment Weekly. "Part of it had to do with having just finished [sci-fi film] Serenity."

After Whedon's film got cancelled, NBC tried to bring Wonder Woman to the small screen in 2011. Directed by David E. Kelley, the TV pilot also got canceled and would have starred Adrianne Palicki as the main character.

"I do wish it would have gone to series but everything happens for a reason," Palicki told CraveOnline last year. "Looking at it as a positive, I got to work with some amazing actors, [an] amazing writer and I got to wear the outfit."

The August issue of The Hollywood Reporter hits newsstands July 26.
