Rumor About WONDER WOMAN Appearing In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Gains A Little Traction
For the past few weeks there have been rumors and rumblings that Batman vs. Superman may include an appearance or cameo from Wonder Woman. Jaimie Alexander mentioned that she had spoken with Warner Bros. about the film, leading many to believe Lady Sif may become Princess Diana of Themyscira. Then yesterday a rumor about Oblivion actress Olga Kurylenko hit that said she may be testing for the role. Well tonight a few more names have emerged.
Variety is reporting that the role that people think is Wonder Woman, which has only been described as a “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic” woman that may be a love interest for Bruce Wayne, has two more actress vying for it. Kurylenko was confirmed, but Variety says Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot and G.I. Joe: Retaliation actress Elodie Yung are on the shortlist. While a fourth actress may emerge, the site says Jaimie Alexander is out of the running since she’s a Marvel girl. While that role may just be for Bruce Wayne‘s love interest after all, or even if it actually is Wonder Woman, Variety drops one interesting tidbit about other characters popping up in the already packed Batman vs. Superman:
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.
So it may turn into Batman vs. Superman vs. Nighwing vs. Flash vs. Lex Luthor. While rumors are running rampant for the film, only time will tell what turns out to be true. With Batman vs. Superman supposedly laying the groundwork for the connected DC cinematic universe though, it would not be surprising if a few other heroes pop in for a quick cameo. What do you think about the shortlist of actresses who may or may not be Wonder Woman?
