Wonder Woman Movie: Who Do You Want For The Leotard and Lasso?
There's rumours of a possible movie adaptation on the radar at the moment for DC's biggest heroine - so who would be your Wonder Woman?
Following Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy and the recent Superman epic 'Man Of Steel', there seems to be one obvious direction to go in next for DC Comics with their film franchises: a Wonder Woman movie, of course. The Amazonian knockout was first portrayed successfully by Lynda Carter in the TV series between 1975 and 1979, and it hasn't yet been put to cinema neither as a solo project for the character nor as a Justice League of America set-up. There have been all sorts of rumours flying about recently with Jaimie Alexander talking a lot about the supposed upcoming Wonder Woman movie and we've got pretty excited discussing who might be considered for the role.
So, who do we think would do the Wonder Woman costume 'justice'?
Jaimie Alexander: The 'Thor' actress has set tongues wagging as she gushed about the character in an interview with Forbes. 'I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her', she said. Batman vs. Superman, hmm? Does she know something we don't? On the suggestion that she could be the one to play her, she insisted, 'I'm appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that's been pretty amazing.' Jaimie would be perfect for the role given her portrayal of Asgardian strong-woman Sif in the 'Thor' movies, and she even bears an interesting resemblance to Lucy Lawless as 90s TV hero Xena, Warrior Princess.
Gina Carano: Former MMA fighter Carano is another one definitely being rumoured to play the role and it's not hard to see why people would see she's made for it. She's certainly beautiful, but more importantly she's built like a comic star having been in the Women's Middleweight division while practising Muay Thai in her sporting career. She's relatively new to acting, but she impressed critics in the lead role of Steven Soderbergh's action movie 'Haywire' and showed a real badass side in 'Fast & Furious 6' while fighting Michelle Rodriguez. Given her feminine but strong presence, Carano wouldn't struggle getting into the mind of someone like Wonder Woman.
