‘Thor 2′ Star Jaimie Alexander in Talks For ‘Batman vs. Superman’? Could She Be the New Wonder Woman?
by Britt Hayes November 3, 2013 1:15 PM

One of the best parts of the ‘Thor‘ movies is Jaimie Alexander’s Sif, one of Thor’s female fighting companions who’s just as badass as her male counterparts. And while we wait for Marvel to pull the trigger on a female-centric superhero movie, Alexander herself has hinted that she’s been talking to Warner Bros. about joining up with their superhero team as well. Could Alexander be Wonder Woman, perhaps?

The desire for a Wonder Woman movie seems to have hit a fever pitch this year, with Marvel teasing plans for a female-led superhero film and DC and Warner Bros. planning on a ‘Justice League‘ film in the near future — the reality of which became all the more possible thanks to Ben Affleck‘s casting as Batman in ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ But who could fill the shoes of Wonder Woman? ‘Thor: The Dark World‘ star Jaimie Alexander, maybe!

The actress recently spoke at a panel, detailed by Forbes magazine, in which she hinted that she’s been meeting with Warner Bros. and knows quite a bit about the upcoming ‘Batman vs. Superman’ movie:

Alexander went on to say followed that up by saying her confidence in Affleck’s casting is bolstered by the fact he is so suited for the particular Batman portrayal in the film — and her reason for that certainty is, as she put it, she “kind of knows the story line for that movie.”

So, by the end of the panel, we’d heard that Jaimie Alexander had had conversations with both Marvel and WB regarding their superhero movies, and that she knows things about the Batman vs. Superman film.
Of course, there’s no script for a Wonder Woman film, so any speculation right now is completely premature, but the idea of Alexander as Wonder Woman is a pretty great one, and she’s certainly proved she’s got the chops to pull off a strong female hero. Might we see Alexander in ‘Batman vs. Superman’? Her comments certainly seem to hint at some sort of involvement, and we can’t wait to learn more.

Hey, the fact that he likes his women looking like 12 year old boys dressed in drag DOESN'T say ANYTHING about him psychologically!

Rumor Patrol: Olga Kurylenko Testing For ‘Wonder Woman’ in ‘Batman vs. Superman’
Published 11 hours ago by Andrew Dyce , Updated November 7th, 2013 at 8:39 am,

More information on the production of Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman may be just days away, but a brand new rumor is already looking to set fan discussion ablaze like only word of a Wonder Woman casting could.

To this point all involved with the film have kept their lips sealed at just how far the sequel to Man of Steel would go in laying the groundwork for a Justice League team-up. The latest report claims that not only will Wonder Woman most definitely be appearing in the anticipated sequel, but that Ukrainian-born actress Olga Kurylenko is already screen-testing for the part.

The rumor comes courtesy of SchmoesKnow, so given the website’s recent streak of insider leaks, this one is bound to gather serious attention. According to the site, the word comes from a “very reliable source,” but it’s important to emphasize that even if Kurylenko is being tested by Snyder and executive producer Christopher Nolan, that can simply mean she is being strongly considered.

Kurylenko may be familiar to movie fans due to her appearances in some ill-received films – Max Payne, Hitman and Quantum of Solace among them – but has drawn more positive buzz in recent years thanks to the likes of Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion and Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder (in which she played love interest to Ben Affleck).

Of course, whether or not Kurylenko is atop the studio’s shortlist, this rumor confirms that Wonder Woman will likely be appearing (in either large or small part) alongside the titular heroes of Batman vs. Superman. To this point WB executives have dodged questions about the Amazonian Princess altogether, beyond simply claiming they hoped to see her on either TV or the big screen soon. Sooner than they may have thought, it seems.

The timing of this report, and Kurylenko’s apparent lead in the casting process comes as particularly interesting given that it comes just days after Thor: The Dark World‘s Jaimie Alexander confirmed she was in talks with Warner Bros. concerning Batman vs. Superman. That admission led many to believe that she was discussing a future role as Wonder Woman, given that she has gone on record about her passion for the character, and is a frontrunner in many lists of actresses capable of pulling off the role (including ours).

If that is the case (as it seems to be), then this rumor can be taken as yet another sign that Warner Bros. is absolutely on the hunt for a Wonder Woman, with both Alexander and Kurylenko being given special attention. Going by previous performances, Alexander would seem to have the edge; then again, Kurylenko has exhibited some serious range over the course of her career. It will be interesting to see how fans react to her name being tossed into the discussion.

However, we’ve also spoken at length about the many possibilities for other supporting female roles in Batman vs. Superman already – Sasha Bordeaux and Kara Zor-El, for instance. Keeping that in mind, it’s still possible that Kurylenko, or Alexander for that matter, are being considered by Warner Bros. for completely different roles. The previous reports of an open casting call for Wonder Woman were eventually dispelled, but Kurylenko is certainly an actress that would be sought after.

We’ll keep you updated when and if more news arrives, or even an official confirmation of whether Wonder Woman will be present in Batman vs. Superman at all. For now, what do you think about Kurylenko rising to the top of Snyder’s list? Have you seen enough of her work to be intrigued, or are you sticking with your current favorites? Sound off in the comments.

Batman vs. Superman will be in theaters on July 17, 2015.

Gal Gadot And Elodie Yung Testing For WONDER WOMAN (?) Role In BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN

Following rumours that Olga Kurylenko is in talks to play Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman, Variety have now backed that up by adding that Gal Gadot and Elodie Young are also being tested! However, it's expected that she won't be the only Justice League member featured in the movie...
By Josh Wilding - 11/7/2013



According to Variety, Fast and Furious actress Gal Gadot and G.I. Joe: Retaliation's Elodie Yung have joined Oblivion's Olga Kurylenko on Warner Bros.' short list of actresses who are testing for the lead female role in Batman Vs. Superman. While many still believe that the "tall, brunette, athletic and exotic" woman is in fact Bruce Wayne's love interest, speculation is running rampant that it is in fact Wonder Woman. This is made all the more likely by the fact that the site adds, "insiders believe the plan is to not just have Batman appear in the film, in addition to Superman, but several members of the Justice League as well. It’s unclear which members but Wonder Woman and The Flash are said to be locks to make an appearance in some fashion, whether that’s a significant role or a cameo." Exciting news, eh? Sound off with your thoughts below!

The chick on the far left there looks like she could be cosplaying as Elektra (except for the katana swords rather than sai, I mean).

So is this going to be WF? Or are they trying to sneak in a Trinity movie? I'm okay with Batman and Superman teaming up but they should leave something for the future...
