Christina Hendricks - Christina Hendricks 'Perfect Choice' For Wonder Woman

Christina Hendricks is director Nicolas Winding Refn's first choice to play the role of Wonder Woman.

The 'Mad Men' star is the ideal person to star as the iconic DC comic superheroine in the forthcoming big screen adaptation, according to the director, as she will appeal to both the male and female audience.

He said: "First of all, she's an awesome actress. Second, she's so beautiful and so sexy and such a powerhouse of a woman that Liv, my wife, said that's the prototype of a real woman. She has everything a guy would want. And yet she's everything a girl thinks is the right way to look. So for me, she's the perfect choice."

"And she's mature, which I think Wonder Woman has to be, because it's a very complex character. You know, the whole Wonder Woman concept is 'What if women were more powerful than men?'"

Nicolas also wants Christina for the movie because he believes the curvy model has the perfect physical attributes to wear the character's skimpy outfit.

He added to New York Magazine: "And I certainly can't come up with a more ideal choice to play that, both consciously because she's very smart but also because of her sensibility and her physicality ... so for me, she's the perfect choice because she has so much sensibility and sexuality, but it's true sexuality. And she has a body to die for. I certainly don't know anybody of both sexes who doesn't find her extremely attractive."

Christina, 36, has previously revealed she would jump at the chance to take part.

She said: "I heard that rumour too - I don't know where it got started but I love it! I've been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life! I'd love to do it. That would be such fun! Let's put it out there!"
