With DC dropping the news of a Superman-Batman team-up movie at Comic-Con last weekend, some of us have begun to ask if Warner Bros. have yet figured out a way to bring the Amazonian princess to the big-screen.
Although we haven't had an official announcement, you can bet your bottom dollar that if DC want to mimic Marvel's path to glory then we'll certainly be hearing something soon... Which raises another subject for speculation: Who could play Wonder Woman?
Well, we've heard rumors about Gina Carano, Olivia Wilde, and Jaimie Alexander all wanting the role. There's also a rather small group of fans who want The Newsroom star to get on board. However, when Munn spoke to the Boston Herald recently, she revealed her fears that she'll never land her dream role as Wonder Woman because of her Chinese background:
It would be great, though, if the producers could make Wonder Woman an Asian-American, but that's probably not what they would do... I don't know a lot of Asian-American women who are getting great opportunities yet, and the other actresses (vying for the role) are probably really famous and Hollywood tends to go for the girls who are already in the big movies.
Olivia Munn already has Wonder Woman's body type, so she's probably a better fit to play her than a lot of other candidates. Plus, if DC are worried casting Munn would outrage the fanbase, well, that is the precise fanbase that is already in love with Munn's self-identified comic book nerdiness.
What do you think, could Munn play Wonder Woman? If not, who would you like to see in the role? Throw me your thoughts below!
