    There was a time when he was going to be collaborating with Bill Sienkiewicz on a Wonder Woman project, which would've delved into the bondage element of her character https://www.cbr.com/wonder-woman-fra...ewicz-bondage/
    But unfortunately it didn't eventuate. It would have been a fascinating reading experience. It would be cool to see them collaborate on a Wonder Woman Year One that perhaps touched on this subject, not sure if it will ever happen though. But he did say that Diana will appear in that World War 2 project (along with Superman and Sgt Rock) he's doing with Andy Kubert. Looking forward to that!
    That's all I need to make me say hell no. Just because you can write a strong female character that doesn't mean you can write Wonder Woman. She's completely atypical, as well as the most iconic. She requires proper care and thoughtfulness I can't see him providing.

    Even some of Miller's "strong female characters" have a great deal of dodgy to outright ugly elements to them like Elektra who is less of a character and more like an amalgamation of tropes that Miller finds appealing (a ninja femme fatale in a skimpy outfit) and Miho is the one-dimensional Asian martial artists stereotype people think Cassandra Cain is.
