Is Warner Bros. looking for Wonder Woman with their casting call for Batman vs Superman?

09.26.2013

Some casting calls are very specific like "Hey, we need an actor to play so-and-so." Other casting calls are a little less open about who the part is for, and you have to read between the lines a little bit.

Bleeding Cool has some news on a casting call from Warner Bros. for BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, and while the character description is vague, the site seems to think it's for Wonder Woman.

I can tell you that she’ll be somewhere between twenty five and thirty three – or at least leave the impression of a woman in that age range, whatever that might be. I can tell you that she needs to be physically strong. They’re specific about that. And I can tell you that the discussion in some agencies who have been submitting actors for this role is that they’re sending up candidates for the role of Wonder Woman. They don’t know that it’s her, it’s just become their expectation, or at least a rumor that’s colored their conception.

Warner Bros. won't confirm they're searching for Wonder Woman, but they haven't denied it either. The casting call could be for a different character, but if that's the case why is Warner Bros. being so tight-lipped about the role? It could be for a female character that doesn't have super powers but who, especially where they're specifically looking for someone who is physically strong? Let's see how this rumor plays out...

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, and directed by Zack Snyder will be in theaters July 17, 2015.

I think they could combine those speculations about Supergirl that everyone had after Man of Steel and create their own Wonder Woman. In this movie universe it would make sense for Wonder Woman to be an amalgam of Supergirl and Wonder WOman - basically she would have the appearance, name and powers of Diana and only the origin of Kara. That way it would fit the established world and you wouldn't need to explain the existence of mythological gods

Could even be for a final scene to lead into Justice League with cameos by the other members.
Remember Jor-el's line from Man of Steel about others joining Superman in the sun.
Imagine a scene after Batman and Supes have made peace, we hear the lines again as the other members come into the shot.
Done correctly you wouldn't even need to have the parts cast for the Justice League film yet.

I think if it was Wonder Woman they would have dropped that bomb at comic con the same time they did with batman. I could see it being Lex's bodyguard Mercy.

It would be a cool way of introducing the character. Let's be honest, Warner/DC has had some big troubles with launching a film franchise around Wonder Woman, but this could work.

I have absolutely no idea how this could work on screen. The only way I can think of is that there is a subplot in the movie which brings Clark and Bruce together, something like Bruce Wayne is representing WayneTech at some conference to discuss the global energy situation and Clark is assigned to cover the

There is a planned meeting of the minds and Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor are expected to meet with other top business and political leaders. One of the political leaders is Princess Diana of Themyscira, a fleeting appearance. And then in the after credits sequence (which is all too common in Superhero films now), we see a clip of Diana returning to her private jet to go home. Her and her assistant are discussing the events of Superman/Batman and what this might mean for them. Diana says something to the effect of returning on her own to find out. With that, she steps into her jet and as it takes off it becomes invisible.

Of all the times I have seen people try to post their ideas for movie plots in the comment section. This is probably the only one that didn't make me scratch my head. Nice work .

Superman gets into trouble so one of his allies like his mom or Lois has to reach out to Wonder Woman for help.

What about Mercy?

I hope its not Wonder Woman because it will take so much away from the Superman sequel, which this is. I think this casting might be for Mercy Graves, Lex's assistant. Mercy fits the age range and needs to be athletic as she's also Lex's body guard. Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to the JL movie, but they shouldn't ruin the MOS franchise by trying to squeeze every other hero in MOS2.

Make this happen Warner Bros.

Justice League:

Superman - Henry Cavil
Batman - Ben Affleck
Wonder Woman - Eva Green
Flash - Garrett Hedlund
Green Lantern - Luke Evans
Aquaman - Charlie Hunnam
Maxwell Lords - Daniel Craig (Bennedict Cumberbatch is too easy of a choice)
Darkseid - Ron Perlman

That's a great cast. I just don't like your pick for Wonder Woman or Flash all that much.

Hope this is true but for a small role in the film. It would have been nice if after Batman vs Superman they did a Trinity film and then the JLA. Also pleeease comic gods get the casting right for Wonder Woman.

I think if they wanted a Wonder Woman, they should've jumped to a Trinity movie. I think that moving forward, there's a story to tell about her being a newcomer to man's world, and being kind of shown the ropes by Batman and Superman who have been established as a team for a while. That, and her role as an ambassador, something of a fish out of water story with this warrior woman. For this film, a post-credits stinger scene set on Themyscira would definitely be a treat, but it would also be

We've seen how "nice" Marvel and DC are when actors jump from one side of the pond to the other (Bryan Singer, Halle Berry, James Marsden). Yeah, studio execs really don't like that when you jump to a competing franchise, and while directors often have that freedom (J.J. Abrams) many actors contracts specifically prohibit them from doing that, and with how specific Marvel is with her contracts, I wouldn't be surprised if theirs contained a similar clause.

My picks: Eva Green, Olivia Wilde,

My picks: Eva Green, Olivia Wilde, Olivia Thirlby (i.e. an actress who not only looks the part, but can act too)

I think anyone who is looking to an established star for Wonder Woman is missing the mark, I suspect Warner/DC will try to find a less-established actress who doesn't come with a high price tag, which rules out Wilde and Green. Jaime Alexander is already signed to Marvel so she's out as well. Olivia Thirlby has the chops but she's way short - 5'3". Besides, she doesn't look exotic enough for Wonder Woman.

About bloody time

they got something going with Wonder Woman. They should use the script from that animated DC movie they released a few years back - that was an excellent origins story.

As for casting, I'd suggest Odette Annable (née Yustman). She has the look, the height, the athleticism and the acting chops.

Fucking horrible idea to include her in the Batman/superman movie, but ill completely understand why they would do it. If the character's popular is will get a spin off and be a huge success....like Elektra was.

Extra tidbit: I'd say a cameo role, at best, which would lead the way for more members of Justice League to show up.
