Torchwood's Amy Manson is in the running to play Wonder Woman in CW's Amazon

Jan. 16, 2013by: Niki Stephens

That girl in the photo above, that scorching piece of ace is currently a popular candidate to play Wonder Woman in the CW's AMAZON.

The girl in question that I am objectifying goes by the name of Amy Manson, and you may have seen her in TORCHWOOD and BEING HUMAN. The Scottish-born actress has had a lot of experience in television as well as a few straight to DVD movies. Sources say that Manson has been rather impressive in auditions leading her to get several callbacks for the role. If chosen, she would play a younger Diana during her early days on Themyscira.

Back in September, I ran a "Cast This" specifically for this part. The readers of the site who participated chose Gina Carano as their number one to take on the role of Wonder Woman. The second and third place winners were Lynn Collins and Odette Annable (formerly Yustman), respectively. If I had to chose from those three, I'd take Collins. While I am all for bringing more female comic superheroes to the forefront (thought I wish they would expand outside of the usually choices), I feel like Wonder Woman's moment died some time ago.

The CW is eager to get AMAZON going, and it's possible that she will do a crossover with ARROW. OOOOOOoooo. I don't care for ARROW. I thought it was terrible, sorry.

Do you think Manson would make a good Wonder Woman?

She is neither tall enough, nor has she the build to play wonder woman. Wonder Woman is an amazon, with the muscle tone required of an athlete! Maybe if she puts on some muscle tone and weight, she could pull it off. That is, if the director can ensure that she looks taller than 57.

There are a lot of good actors that are on and were on the CW. For instance Joshua Jackson, Jensen Ackles, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Rosenbaum, and Misha Collins.

meh...

I don't see it.
Hope they are moving on with a movie, because the character has the potential! I really like what Jaimie Alexander has to say about a possible movie and the character, so I would give her a shot. And a big hell no to Gina Carano, they need someone who can act...

I haven't seen Amy Manson in anything and I can't find her dimensions online so I can't tell if she'd be right for the role. I agree with The_Soloist that Jaimie Alexander would be amazing as Wonder Woman.

As for Lynn Collins, I've met her and she's dumber than a bag o' hammers. Odette Annable would be another great choice.

Interesting, I wouldn't think of Lynn Collins as dumb. What circumstances did you meet her under, if I may ask?

She has the look of Wonder Woman. I still think for a big budget film that Jaime Alexander would be perfect.

I will end up watching this show to see if it's any good and to see if the CW can pull off Wonder Woman. And by the way, I think Arrow is a cool show. Underrated superhero.
