In terms of secondary characters who could be added to the upcoming (untitled) Superman Vs Batman movie, it doesn’t get much bigger than Wonder Woman and Dick Grayson. In some rumors we’ve heard as of late, those are the two characters currently being cast!

NBC passed on the opportunity to bring a Wonder Woman television series to its lineup, so Lynda Carter’s performance remains the last live-action incarnation for the Amazonian, with producers unwilling (or unable) to bring about a new series nor a new movie in the past 34 years.

Given that Warner Bros has admittedly been working on setting up a Justice League film to rival Marvel’s AVENGERS success, the character is undoubtedly hitting screens in the next 10 years, and this Superman Vs Batman film is a great place to start with a cameo or a small introductory role.

Reliable sources inside the world of comic book movies have identified two actresses as the top contenders for the role of Wonder Woman:

Olga Kurylenko

You might be familiar with Olga from her performance in the Bond film Quantum of Solace. She’s said to have already met with people from Warner Bros and had something of an audition for the role.

Jaimie Alexander

If you’ve seen either of the first two Thor films, you might recognize Jaimie as the beautiful Norse warrior Sif. Not only is Ms Alexander rumored to be in talks for the role, but she has publicly stated that she’d like to play Wonder Woman. FirstShowing has a few pieces of information that gives credibility to her being linked to the role.

As seen above with the fan adaptation/transformation photoshopped still-frame, you might consider Jaimie Alexander to be the popular choice.

Other ladies we’d love to see as Wonder Woman:

  • Adrianne Palicki (Wonder Woman Pilot, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS)
  • Gemma Arterton (HANSEL & GRETEL, RUNNER RUNNER)
  • Morena Baccarin (HOMELAND, FIREFLY)
  • Gina Carano (HAYWIRE)
