Sheena Queen of the Jungle Reboot in the Works

There is a Sheena Queen of the Jungle Reboot in the works through Millenium Pictures. The movie is based on the comic of the same name and the character created by Will Eisner and ‎Jerry Iger. Sheena first appeared in 1937 in British comic magazine Wags, but her real claim to fame came state side when in 1942 Sheena became the first female comic book character to have her own titled series in Fiction Comics. Just months before Wonder Woman would debut with her own title.

Sheena has been a TV series in the 50s, a film in the 80s and was rebooted again in 2000 in another series starring Gena Lee Nolin. And on August 16, the comic got a reboot through imprint Dynamite Comics with DC Comics Bombshells’ writer Marguerite Bennett, Christina Trujillo and artist Moritat.

Thank God Bennet et, al. are updating the story. In the original, Sheena was raised in the jungle, could talk to animals, had superior fighting skills and was fearless but promptly reverted to a damsel in distress the moment she met a white man for the first time. Because 1947.

So what do you think? Have you read the comic? Can Millenium take Sheena and make her into as big of a blockbuster hit as Wonder Woman? Sheena Queen of the Jungle is set to release in the summer of 2018.
