This Might Be Wonder Woman In ‘Batman Vs. Superman’
There's been a lot of rumors that Wonder Woman will make her first appearance in Warner Bro.'s DC universe in Batman vs. Superman as they desperately try to copy Marvel's big screen strategy, but now comes the bad news. Variety reports:
Sources tell Variety that “Fast and Furious” actress Gal Gadot, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” thesp Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko have or will test for the female lead, which appears to be the role of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman. Sources stress there’s still a possibility this role could be Bruce Wayne’s love interest, but the casting description of “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic” also matches that of the Wonder Woman character in the comics. WB had no comment. Schmoes Know reported earlier in the week that Kurylenko had auditioned, and sources add there is a possibility a fourth actress could be added to the list. Recent reports suggested “Thor” thesp Jaimie Alexander would be up for the part but Alexander’s obligation to future Marvel pics takes her out of the running since it’s a DC comics property. The Wonder Woman rumor has been kicking around for some time, and insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo.
Olga. The woman who might play the most iconic picture of female badassery in the history of American art is named Olga. I hope the first scene is Bruce Wayne giving her a loan so she can get implants.
