Thor's Jaimie Alexander addresses the idea of playing Wonder Woman
My casting suggestion for WONDER WOMAN has been Jaimie Alexander. However, I do know how tricky that might be seeing as though she plays Sif in the THOR franchise. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks the actress would be a good fit for the Amazonian princess.
IGN spoke with Alexander and asked her if she was aware of the fan interest in her playing the role:
You know, Im very aware of that, and yeah, it is extremely flattering, because I really did love that character growing up. I think that if there was the right script and the right timing, like Ive said before in interviews, itd be nice to see Wonder Woman done sort of like The Bourne Identity or something a little bit more masculine and a bit more tough, because really all weve seen thus far is her running around in hot pants and big, huge boobs and not really doing much. And Im talking about film and television, Im not talking about the comic books, because actually in the comic books -- especially Allan Heinbergs version -- shes pretty badass! She works for the CIA, shes incredible. But, you know, if something was done a little bit more classy and it had a lot more strength to it, I would consider it. Theres nothing I wouldnt consider. Of course, I am Lady Sif in a Marvel franchise, and that may not work out, for me to play Wonder Woman, but I am absolutely flattered that people want me to play her because Ive always loved her since I was a kid.
I'm sure you are all wondering what she meant with the BOURNE IDENTITY connection. The version of WONDER WOMAN we've been exposed to outside of animation is Lynda Carter in the 1975 series. With that we didn't get much real life action. The character would benefit from some hardcore, stylized fighting. However, I just don't see this happening with her being attached to a Marvel franchise. You guys have suggested Gina Carano, but who else?
