If you haven't read my Possible Wonder Women! you should. Anyway, I want to give some possible casting and storylines along with that to make a [Wonder Woman](movie:45787) movie. I'll point out some characters stories too because they vary within the DC multiverse.
Anyway, let's get to some people who are in the cast of the DCCU. Tao Okamoto is in the cast and some are speculating that she would be Mercy Graves.
Honestly, I can't see her as Mercy, but you never how good an actor can make their role given to them could be until you see it. I think she can be someone else. I can see her in 3 roles: Tatsu Toro (Katana), Sofia Constantinas from Themyscira, or Cassandra Cain (Batgirl or Black Bat.)
Actually, now thinking about.... It would be REALLY interesting to see Tao as Batgirl. She is asian (clearly) and I think she has the look for Black Bat. Now, she could be Sofia which would give more of the Amazons we know little about more shine and who knows, maybe they can expand on her character in a WW comic. Katana is basically the Cassandra argument.
As for Mercy Graves... For now the only one actress I can see as Mercy is Tabrett Bethell.
Not saying that other actresses can't, but after watching Legend of the Seeker, I think Bethell can pull of Graves and has the looks for it (to me at least.) Some stories, Mercy Graves is said to be related to the Amazons and I think it would be good to utilize these types of stories to really boost some of the female characters.
Now let's move on to Philippus, the royal guard of Hippolyta herself.
Remember in my last article on this topic when I said Gina Carano can play the role? Well, maybe we should stick with diversity. One of my picks is Zoe Saldana.
I know, she's in [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073), but there are actors who played both DC and Marvel roles. Anyway, I think she can pull off Philippus. Also, can't really think of another actress for the role, so if you can, comment below.
Now, another Amazon that hasn't had a story expansion is Mala. I think Katheryn Winnick looks good for the part. Now, I have to say I have not watched all the show and movies these actresses have been apart of, so these are mainly just looks for now.
Okay... for now, let's stop it right here. Some of these casting may seem odd to others, but I cast people based on how I think they can pull off the role, not just looks alone. Okay, yes I haven't seen Katheryn Winnick in Vikings, but I try to make of for it by casting people based on the environment they worked in (and yeah Winnick was basically looks lol.) Just because the actor looks good for the role, it doesn't mean they are. By the way, WW was the first strong female lead hero and paved the way for others (that includes Marvel heroines) so when I say Wonder Women, I mean all heroines.
Tell me other actresses you think should be involved in the WW project. Topic might go to a part 4! I will include Donna Troy, Cassandra Sandsmark, Circe, Cheetah and more! Here is Possible Wonder Woman pt.3.
