Thor's Jaimie Alexander addresses the idea of playing Wonder Woman

04.26.2013

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, I’m 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 I’ve said before in interviews, it’d 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 we’ve seen thus far is her running around in hot pants and big, huge boobs and not really doing much. And I’m talking about film and television, I’m not talking about the comic books, because actually in the comic books -- especially Allan Heinberg’s version -- she’s pretty badass! She works for the CIA, she’s 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. There’s nothing I wouldn’t 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 I’ve 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?

Doesn't matter....

...that she is playing a Marvel character. Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool then went on to headlining Green Lantern so it's entirely plausible for her to make the same switch. The biggest problem is going to be getting a good script and for the studio to have faith in the project. There is still a big hang up with studio execs afraid of backing a female led action/super hero film despite all the evidence to the contrary. I think she would make a good Wonder Woman I just wonder if anyone will even

tough call

acting wise it's tough to say. but physically daddario or carano would be perfect. whoever they choose has to fill out the outfit! can't be a skinny wonder woman.

If Ryan Reynolds can jump from Green Lantern to Deadpool, and JJ Abrams can jump from Star Trek to fucking STAR WARS (!!!), Jaimie can jump from a minor Marvel character to Wonder Woman.

There is only ONE choice

Gina Carrano. She is the only actresd out there right now with the PROPER physicality. Not this olivia wilde bs where shes thin as a stick with a pretty face dressed up as tough.

Olivia Wilde

She's the right age, right look, I have no doubt she'd be able to pull of the physicality of the role, and is at the right level of fame where it'd make sense to give her a leading role but the studio would still be able to get her for pretty cheap. Oh yeah, and she actually has a fair amount of talent too.

Don't do it, she's too badass to play Wonder Woman in what will inevitably a shitty film. She's just too good for this kind of role.

Handy Man > Wonder Woman
The character doesn't interest me in the least. I'd consider Jordana Brewster, but she'd need to stuff that bra a bit.

Except for Sif and Wonder Woman aren't both Marvel properties. Sif is owned by Marvel and Wonder Woman is D.C., hence the issue. A couple of actors have gotten studios seriously ticked off at them (James Marsden and Halle Berry to name a couple) when they tried to play both fields.

Hello?? Ryan Reynolds Anyone??

Didnt Ryan Reynolds Play Deadpool (Marvel Character) and then Green Lantern ( DC Character ) ? then why cant Jamie Alexander Play Wonder Woman? its not like they plan on doing some DC meets Marvel where Wonder Woman runs into Sif !!
She can Play Wonder Woman... her being in THOR does not affect this at all.
And Whats this crap about Gemma Arterton playing Wonder Woman??? she does NOT fit the bill, She has an accent and Freckles, and does not at all embody who Wonder Woman is......That's

Wonder Woman works best with a Natural Jet Black haired woman.

There's also Halle Berry, who's played Catwoman (though we'd rather forget that) and Storm (apparently a good number of schmoes would also like to forget that).

Alexandra Daddario. She's played a woman warrior in the Percy Jackson series and was a kick ass heroine in both Bereavement and Chainsaw 3D. She's got the look and still young enough to carry a Franchise!

She's definitely a good choice but in my opinion, not the best. Wonder Woman is suppose to be one of the most beautiful women in the world and while Jaime Alexander is definitely good-looking, I think there are better choices.

You know what? Fuck it, cast her! I took another moment to think about, looked at the picture in the article, and decided that yes, she would be a GREAT choice. Do it!

Odette Yustman also has the look, and she's a decent actress. Lizzy Caplan also has solid acting chops. If you want to go really exotic, Rosario Dawson.

Jaime Alexander would be my first pick for Wonder Woman, but if not her then I like Gemma Arterton for the role.

With Emily Blunt, Evangeline Lilly, or Michelle Monaghan as possible dark horses.

Only because Cole never worked to look like a Wonder Woman type, yet.

I'm sure Jaimie Alexander is normally a Skinny Minnie too. But with working out, costume, and camerawork, we all buy into her having a warrior's physique without much of a problem. So it's arguable Cole couldn't do it too.

Eh, I would rather they not go with the Agent Diana Prince storyline, at least not for the first film anyway. The Photoshopped thumbnail image of Alexander in character as Wonder Woman does look great.

Lynn Collins

I dunno if Lynn Collins' role as Wolverine's girlfriend causes the same problems as it would for Jaimie Alexander, but she did a pretty good job as a warrior-princess in John Carter, and she's been doing martial arts since she was live five years old. She's weighed in on playing Wonder Woman as well: [link]
