Who Should Be Wonder Woman In Wonder Woman The Movie?
Another movie that has had so many inquiries is Wonder Woman the movie? Will DC Comics and Time/Warner ever get this iconic comic character on the big screen? After all, she is one of the most popular and iconic female superhero characters ever in the world of comic books.
Even though a Wonder Woman movie is most likely quite a bit away from happening, it's fun to think about who should be Wonder Woman? There's a lot of beautiful actresses that can look the part and play the role, no doubt.
Just like many other comic geeks, I do fancy certain actresses whom I think could step into the boots of the gorgeous Amazonian princess if Wonder Woman the movie should ever get seriously into development. I know there's quite a bit of debate about it, and rightly so!
Wonder Woman is an icon after all, and there's one factor that makes choosing the right Wonder Woman hard that's summed up in two words - Linda Carter! Yes, she is, forever, known as Wonder Woman for her portrayal of the character in the early TV show.
Actually, when one thinks of the character Wonder Woman, Linda Carter often comes to mind. For anyone my age or near my generation, getting around the image of her is a super task all in itself. Not just anyone can pull off that get-up so amazingly well as she did, you know?
Nevertheless, like I said, there's quite a few actresses I think who can pull off Wonder Woman in a movie. You may not agree or have others in mind and that's just fine too. Be sure to share if you do!
So here's my list of those Hollywood beauties who should be Wonder Woman. They resemble her physically and have already proven they can kick mucho butt on screen.
Also these actresses haven't expressed disdain to the idea like Megan Fox has, in which she said in an interview, "Wonder Woman is lame." So because of her comment, Megan Fox is scratched off the potential candidates list.
Of course, and as always, you can cast your vote on who you think would make a better Wonder Woman out of this list at the poll below. It's all in good fun so why not?
She's one of our favorite female vampires in the Underworld movie franchise, and we were all sure that she's no newcomer to pulling off action flicks. Okay, pulling off action flicks is an understatement. She can carry an action movie to huge blockbuster success!
Nonetheless, she looks the part with black hair as well. Okay, her eyes are brown, but, hey, she can always reuse the same blue contacts she used to play Selene in Underworld, right?
Kate Beckinsale would look like a more modern age Wonder Woman, and her accent just may fit in with the whole Amazonian exotic feel. After all, do we really know if Amazonian women speak with American accents? Not really!
Oh, Carla, Carla, Carla! A wonderful specimen of beauty and fine actress as well. To me, she would represent a more classic look of Wonder Woman like Linda Carter. I'm not saying she looks like Linda Carter, just more towards the silver and bronze age Wonder Woman in the comics like Linda Carter.
Many on this list would lean more towards the modern Wonder Woman comic look. However, back to Carla Gugino! No doubt is she is no stranger when it comes to playing in comic book movies.
She stunned audiences with her sexiness in Sin City. Then she made our pulses rise in her role of Sally Jupiter, the original Silk Spectre, in the movie Watchmen!
I can see her as an amazing Wonder Woman! She's got the looks and the acting chops. Is there even a doubt?
Ah, Angelina Jolie is no doubt a perfect candidate to step into the costume and role of Wonder Woman if a Wonder Woman the movie should ever happen. Just darken her locks a bit more and got one sexy Wonder Woman.
She's already proven herself in various action films like Tomb Raider, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, as well as Wanted. We know she's more than capable of kicking butt and looking damn sexy while doing it. Even Joss Whedon, The Avengers director, wants her to play the role!
I think the folks at DC/Warner probably have her for consideration already. If not, I think they should seriously start considering Angelina for the role.
The real question is would she play Wonder Woman? You never know!
We already seen Sienna Miller as the raven-haired beauty, The Baroness, in the first G.I. Joe film Rise of the Cobra. We already know she can pull off those action scenes pretty well and look ubber hot doing it!
So, yeah, she's absolutely on this list of who should be Wonder Woman. With the dark tresses, she resembles the iconic Amazonian, and we all know she's experienced in intense action sequences.
Just slap on the costume, die the hair again, and there you go! A modern age looking Wonder Woman ready to hit the silver screen!
The Wonder Of It All
Although a Wonder Woman the movie is most likely far off from happening - if it ever happens with those cuckoo heads at DC/Warner - it's still fun to think about who would be best to play that coveted role.
This is my relatively short list of potential candidates to play the iconic DC comic character. Like I mentioned before, it's a pretty huge role to fill in. I would be nervous if I were them and DC/Warner came a calling to play the role.
Then again, they could be like Megan Fox and express absolutely no desire at all to play one of the most popular female superhero characters of all time. Sorry guys, no Megan Fox on this list, and no Jennifer Love Hewitt either, although she's been fighting to get the role.
Sorry, Jennifer, I just don't see you as a possible Wonder Woman.
So out of this list of who should be Wonder Woman, whom do you think would be best in the role? Be sure to let your voice be heard and vote at the poll below.
Of course, if you have other suggestions please don't be shy! Be sure to comment!
