Back in the early 2000s, comic book movies required a lot of adaptation and reimagining for the big screen. While a lot of things worked pretty well in panels and in cartoon form, most filmmakers and studios didn’t see everything carrying over to the big screen. You need look no further than 2000’s X-Men to see evidence of that. No way audiences could take those outfits seriously, right? Better to coat our leads in Matrix-inspired leather outfits, because nothing says cool more than leather outfits.
Yes, I mock some of those decisions, but in all honesty, I can see where some of those decisions are coming from. Some things work a lot better drawn than they do in reality. In recent years, however, filmmakers have taken great pains to adapt many of those things to the big screen in a surprisingly faithful fashion. You need look no further than some of the recent films being put out by Marvel Studios, Fox, and Warner Bros. to see what I mean. However, there are some things that perhaps shouldn’t be adapted to the big screen. One bogusly impractical thing? Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. But even that may not be immune to a big screen appearance (or non-appearance).

“The invisible jet is very important and ultimately we have to have the invisible jet. That’s a very big part of Wonder Woman.”
Of course, it’s still too early to count our chickens. While Wonder Woman is doing surprisingly well in its critical reception (it’s currently at a 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), we still don’t know if that’ll translate to a bountiful box office. Furthermore, even of everything DOES fall into place, there is still no guarantee that Patty Jenkins will be involved, and if she was, she may very well change her mind. So don’t get too attached to the idea just yet, but this mention from Jenkins at least makes it clear that it’s something she’s considered, and may very well execute down the line.
But we must ask ourselves if an invisible jet would be worth having in a world like this? If handled right, it could make for a pretty interesting piece of technology. If handled poorly, it could be quite the laughingstock.
