1. I agree with the guys at Redlettermedia that the tendency to do half-origin/half-adversary for the hero's first film makes them sort of unfocused. So I'd either go
a - (In media res) Start off the film with Carol as Ms. Marvel and find some way to explain the origin via nostalgic dialogue. (I HATE flashbacks)
b - To tell the whole story BernieB just wrote (a pipe dream, but it would be awesome), I think you'd have to go LOTR and make 3 films at once with fairly quick releases.
c - To really do her story justice, it would require a mini-series.
As for the costume, it is too iconic. The only change I think you could really compromise on is to make the lower half of her costume jumpsuit instead of thighhighs.
For example, about the failed WW show, that costume was complete crap. If you try to make the image of the icon current or trendy, it is no longer an icon. Picture Jesus in a business suit or Martin L. King dressed as a rapper. Does it work? No.
They should have gone Greek myrmidion skirt and greaves for the WW outfit. That would have been fine. Worked for Xena, she had several seasons.
Oh, and that stuff about WW being a businesswoman? Jesus hollywood, just make up a new superhero and dress them the way you want.
