Wonder Woman shortlist revealed, and it does not include Jaimie Alexander (ha)


When Jaimie Alexander flashed her beav on the Thor 2 red carpet several nights ago, that beav came with a price. The price was “believe that this beav could be the next Wonder Woman.” Jaimie timed her red carpet exhibitionism just right, because she had just planted the seeds of casting rumors for the “Wonder Woman” role in Batman versus Superman, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. The problem? Variety reports that there are three women auditioning for Wonder Woman. And none of them are named “Jaimie Alexander”.

Is Warner Bros. closer to finding the woman who could play Wonder Woman in the untitled “Batman-Superman” pic?

Sources tell Variety that “Fast and Furious” actress Gal Gadot, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” thesp Elodie Yung and Olga Kurylenko have or will test for the female lead, which appears to be the role of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman. Sources stress there’s still a possibility this role could be Bruce Wayne’s love interest, but the casting description of “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic” also matches that of the Wonder Woman character in the comics.

WB had no comment.

Schmoes Know reported earlier in the week that Kurylenko had auditioned, and sources add there is a possibility a fourth actress could be added to the list. Recent reports suggested “Thor” thesp Jaimie Alexander would be up for the part but Alexander’s obligation to future Marvel pics takes her out of the running since it’s a DC comics property.

The Wonder Woman rumor has been kicking around for some time, and insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the film but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members, but Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) and the Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo.

Being directed by “Man of Steel” filmmaker Zack Snyder, the Batman-Superman feature opens worldwide on July 17, 2015, with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill co-starring.

So, that’s a “haha, you flashed your beav for NOTHING!” at Jaimie because this is DC Comics’ way of patting her on the head and saying, “Nice try, Marvel girl.” As for the other ladies being mentioned… the only woman I knew off the top of my head was Olga Kurylenko, because she was a Bond Girl and because she’s dating Danny Houston, who is much, much older than her. I think Olga is really beautiful, but she’s really thin and I’m not sure I would believe her as an ass-kicking superwoman. Let’s see about the other girls…

Here’s a photo of Elodie Yung. She’s French and pretty. I believe that Wonder Woman should be cast with an authentic brunette, and Elodie fills that requirement. She’s also studied martial arts and such. But I don’t know… a Frenchwoman as Diana Prince? No.


And here’s Gal Gadot. She is Israeli and she’s very cute. Look at that face! She’s adorable. I’m not sure she has the curves of who I would want for Wonder Woman either.


You know what? Now that Olga’s name has been mentioned and it got me thinking of Bond Girls, you know who they should audition? Gemma Arterton! She’s curvy, beautiful, talented and cool. I would love to see her in the Wonder Woman ensemble.

    NONE of these women make a convincing Wonder Woman! I actually thought Jaimie had the look, but alas she f–ked it up! I’m not too excited about this movie at all. The whole Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne bit is just the worst of things. It sounds like casting for this film is sucking hairy old man balls!

  2. St says:

    Gemma Arterton has no presence, no good acting skills and looks the same basically in every movie she is in.

    From those three I think they should go with Olga. Because she is known actress, has name recognition, face recognition, is very pretty, already did action movies like Bond one, Oblivion, she was also in Centurion with Michael Fassbenber, Was playing some crazy bad ass chick who wanted to kill Fassy.

    I like Olga. I would be fine even if she would be cast as love interest for Bruce Wayne. It’s a big movie. Good PR for her career. Even this rumor helps her career. Because this news today in on every movie and gossip site. Great job from that person who leaked that information to Variety. No one would remember those other two tomorrow. But now Olga would always be “the one who almost got Wonder Woman role in Batman and Superman movie”. Even if she won’t be cast anywhere.

    Also Olga already played love interest of Ben in To The Wonder. They looked good together,.

    Any actress can get into the shape need for the movie. Look at the transformation of Henry Cavill! Anyhow, none of these chicks seem that great. I think they should attempt to get a good actress. The height is important obviously. I was thinking maybe Charlize Theron. She has the height and the beauty, as well as the acting chops. Some hair dye and training with Mark Twight and I think she could pull it off.

    • Maureen says:

      It is very, very special to be able to embody the strength and femininity in one person that is required of Wonder Woman. She is strong — and physically big, such that by her height she is meant to literally look a man in the eye — morally and physically and integrally. She’s also highly intelligent and possesses wisdom and good judgement. But she’s also very soft and gentle. Charlize Theron can’t pull that off. Not with everything she could muster. Soft has NEVER been anything she’s good at. The closest I can think of right now is Jennifer Lawrence, but her height could be an issue. I really feel this movie needs an unknown actress. Someone who hasn’t been found yet, but I doubt that would happen. Hollywood loves “names”.

    Tall, great presence, kick-a$$. Get a wig on her and we’re in business.

  5. stinky says:

    no one is saying Katy Perry ??
    (if there was one role that shrew should play, its Wonder Woman)

  6. Dorky says:

    It would make me really happy if they would cast Gina Carano. She was EXCELLENT in haywire – those action scenes were SO kickass. If you see that movie, you will totally understand, she is perfect for Wonder Woman. The look, the illegitimate toughness. She does her own stunts and is not at all stick thin. Nice and muscular yet feminine.

    However, I still would have a hard time watching it, because: Ben Affleck. Lol

    And speaking of: that makes me thnk of Jennifer Garner. She could totally do he role; has the wholesome thing down, and of course we all know she can totally kill it on an action scene. Blue contacts for either of these babes. Why not?

    That said, my dream would be for Lynda Carter to do it. She’s still hot as hell, tall, etc. Do it, Hollywood!!!

  7. Miss M says:

    I like Gemma. What about Ashley Scott? She played the daughter of Catwoman with Batman on tv.

  8. V says:

    I hope none of those women are up for WW because I just can’t see it. I also (probably due to Lynda Carter) can’t see a really young woman in the role either. In my house, the WW contenders (by looks alone) are: Daniela Ruah, Adrianne Palicki, Andrea Parker, Milla Jovovich and (my mom’s fave) Bridget Moynahan

  9. Angelduster says:

    Kat Dennings from 2 Broke Girls would be perfect as Wonder woman.
    She seems like the type who could kick your ass and she is gorgeous.

    Pity she us a tv actress

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      She plays Darcy in the Thor franchise butttttt DC hasn’t had a problem with signing Marvel stars. However I don’t think Marvel would let her out of her contract which is a bummer. Kat could be a good contender and I hadn’t even thought about her.

  10. Jen says:

    Ooooh, Gemma Arterton! I absolutely LOVE that idea!

  11. Wondergirl says:

    Poor Jaime….showing her entire crotch didn’t seem to get her anywhere.

  12. Flower says:

    Did you know that Gemma Aterton and Prince Harry were hot and heavy for a quick minute, but she started blabbing about the intimate details to friends and got the boot PDQ.

  13. inkomation says:

    Gemma Arterton.. I love it I can wait for this.. I loved the Wonder Woman series and the theme song was bananerz…

  14. Mandy says:

    What about Cote Del Pablo? Ziva from NCIS

    • St says:

      Cote Del Pablo went to “where are they now” category the next moment after she quit NCIS for no reason. We will never hear about her again. She may resurface few times as guest star in some CSI or other tv show. But that is it. She will be extremely lucky if she will ever score supporting role in some new tv show that will have low ratings and then will be canceled. It was very stupid for her to leave that cash cow NCIS. She had job. She won’t have any now.

  15. Harley says:

    No one will ever top Lynda, IMO. That said, I could’ve seen Gabrielle Reece in this role a few years back. She looks like she could go toe to toe with Supes.

  16. George says:

    Stana Katic from Castle, tall, beautiful,brunette and strong looking. Or Daniela Ruah from Ncis Los Angeles would be a convincing/believable ww also. I thought Jaime would’ve been good too.
