    Well she's certainly got the endowments^_- Visually I like Maria Menuous more but I hear she can't act her way out of a paper bag.

    I thought Whedon left the project a while ago? Last I heard this flick was indefinitely stuck in development hell.

    Bring on the invisible jet!!! I'd love to see Jennifer Love Hewitt copping a squat in mid-air.

    Sandra Bullock?! Uh...yeah...no thanks. Megan Fox would probably make a decent Wonder Woman, I suppose. She's already got black hair, anyway...

    Hair is not a problem; it can be dyed, anyway.

    I think Jessica Biel, with her physique, can be a credible Wonder Woman.

    LOL live action invisible jet. I seriously can't picture that in my mind without laughing.

    Hewitt would be alright I suppose, but I don't even think the movie's started production yet. Has it?

    May as well be. WB has a proven propensity for not really giving a crap about any DC hero who doesn't operate out of either Gotham City or Metropolis (this is purportedly one of the reasons why a lot of their planned animated DVD projects were shelved recently). Heck, we have to sit through another Batman-centric animated series every week just to be able to revisit guys like Green Arrow, Aquaman, Jonah Hex, etc., and the past couple years "Smallville" has been shoehorning into Clark's life pretty much everything in the DCU EXCEPT the cape and tights, which they're only just now starting to lead to since the show is supposed to be wrapping up soon.

    IMO there's a lot riding on "Green Lantern" as far as the chance of any other DC character outside of Batman and Superman getting a movie - if it fails, don't hold your breath waiting for Wonder Woman or the Flash or anyone else in the classic DC stable to grace the big screen.

    Personally I'd like to see Gina Torres (Zoe from Firefly) as wonder woman - I think a black amazon would work and she can kick ass.

    Megan Fox as Wonder Woman?! :puke: 


    I can't think of an actress that commands enough screen presence to play her, other than maybe Angelina Jolie. None of these stick figure tiny ass girls are big enough or buff enough to play Wonder Woman. Though not as pretty as younger actresses, Lucy Lawless would give the toughness the role needs. I don't wanna see some pretty girl Wonder Woman. Jessica Biel has the body, but she doesn't have a commanding voice. Beyonce?! :puke: 

    Sandra Bullock.... :(  I think she's a good enough actress, just not Wonder Woman material.

    I wouldn't mind give Laura Vandervoort a shot. She'd need to tan and dye her hair, but she's played a hero and isn't an established star. Gina Torres could work, but I doubt studio heads will ok that.

    YES. I've been saying this for years. She fits a Mediterranean look, can act, can kick ass, and is gorgeous.

    I had that pic pulled up but, sadly no full body shot. That is why I chose the Leia pic, much sexier!

    Sad part is, I think she works, but I'm afraid they will only cast Wonder Woman on sex appeal of a certain demographic. She would bring the presence and acting skills to make it a serious movie, but I believe they will build the movie (if it gets made) on a young caucasian actress of high sex appeal AND MAYBE competent acting skills.

    For the record, Jennifer Love Hewitt is sexy, but nothing about her or any of her roles says that she could play Wonder Woman.

    Wonder Woman should be an unknown. Like Christopher Reeve before he became Superman. But JLH just does not fit that role imo.

    Wonder Woman had depth. Sure, she looks good, but she can also stand alongside guys like Superman and Batman and not be eclipsed. If it were Megan Fox or JLH, she would just be a sexual icon - nothing more and nothing less. She should be portrayed by somebody who can give her depth and dimension, as well as look stunning.

    Gina Torres would be my pick. Although I do think Morena Baccarin could play Wonder Woman too, but she would need to "buff up" a bit.

    Oh, so THIS!

    Whomever they choose has to be able to sell this sort of stuff:
    [​IMG]

    - and not make the audience roll its eyes at the twig-girl.

    Diana is a warrior. She has been trained in the arts of war for centuries, yet is an envoy of peace. She is strong and fearsome, yet can be gentle and compassionate. Whomever they choose, that actress has to sell that.

    I found this concept online but I have no idea of its origins. Pity. I really like it, and the model in it actually looks the part.
