Joss Whedon, recently announced as writer and director of the Wonder Woman film, said that making a movie is more different from television than he envisioned.

Whedon, the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was at a Wizard World L.A. panel with cast members of Serenity, his upcoming movie based on the Firefly television series.

"In television, the structure is very simple," Whedon said. "It has the act breaks. I know exactly the dance, where to pause and when to shout.

"A movie is so much more fluid that everytime I go to it, I learn something else ... it's been an education."

The panel featured the usual Whedon hijinks and it was in that tone he described getting the Wonder Woman gig.

"I had a meeting with (producer) Joel Silver and he said, 'You should do Wonder Woman,' and I said, 'No, I don't think so,'" Whedon said.

"So I sent him a memo saying, 'I know I told you I'm not doing this, but if I did, this is sort of what I'd be thinking about. Maybe you should think about this, maybe you should do this, and this would be cool and if she did this...'

"So I sent him the memo and he called me and it's like, 'Oh, please.' and 'You like her.' (laughs)

"And I said, 'Yeah, I really do.' So I really am. So I'm going to make Wonder Woman."

Whedon joked with the cast of Serenity about Wonder Wonder, and then cast an eye at Morena Baccarin. "Where will I find a dark-haired, olive-skinned beauty?" he said.
