With an incredible negative turn-out yesterday on the art debuted presenting a vastly different looking Wonder Woman
, I thought that it might be interesting to look at some of the women who could potentially play the Amazonian woman on film. You might not agree with the three here and have your own personal choice, but hey... if you HAD to pick from these three, I don't think that you'd be on the losing side of anything either.
I think the thing that keeps most people from being able to choose a suitable Wonder Woman from the long list of beautiful women in Hollywood is that a lot of us still identify with Linda Carter and the tall brunette with the light eyes and busty body as being the ideal. Then again, I know there are die-hards of the comic who think only the illustrated Wonder Woman will do. If we're looking for the right chick who can make us compare her in a favorable light looks-wise to Carter, it has to be "Lost" hottie, Evangeline Lilly. Gorgeous without having to try too hard and having proven that she's athletic enough to do stunts, she might be a little short on the stature for the role, but hell... Ryan Reynolds has the best male body in Hollywood and they're still CGIing the Green Hornet costume on him.
The greatest thing about Summer Glau is that she's actually quite a petite thing, having been a ballet dancer in her younger years. But you really don't ever get the impression that she's someone who you could push over with a feather. Instead, she gives off the aura that she could kick your ass while making waffles and then sit down and eat her breakfast and kick your ass some more before you recovered. She's got the brawn, but does she have the right look for Diana?
I fell in love with this chick in about 5 seconds a couple of summers ago, when she appeared on screen with Edward Norton in THE INCREDIBLE HULK and I have never forgotten her since. Considering that Nascimento is a Brazilian model, I'm going to wager a guess that she's tall enough to pull it off. She's more certainly got the body required to fill the (better, original) costume. And while she might not be able to speak English all that clearly (if at all) it's not like that ever stopped Salma or Monica from getting roles.
Which is your fave Wonder Hottie?
