There’s no need to keep searching for the right actress, Warner Bros.; Gina Carano is Wonder Woman. While you might think I’m joking around….I’m not. That’s because after watching director Steven Soderbergh’s awesome spy-action pic Haywire twice, I really believe Carano is who you’re looking for. After everyone gets the chance to see her kick ass next week (the pic opens January 20), I’m extremely confident that fandom will agree with me. Hire a new writer to craft a script with Carano in mind; they’ll be inspired. I think one of the reasons Wonder Woman hasn’t come together is you didn’t know who to cast. Thankfully, the search is over.
Being serious, after watching Haywire the second time, I kept thinking Carano would be great as Wonder Woman and it was on my mind when I sat down to talk to her a few days ago. While I usually start with my karaoke question, I decided to ask what she thought of Wonder Woman and if anyone had asked her to play the part yet. Watch what she had to say after the jump.
Look for my full interview with Carano soon. Also, below the video are a few images of her in Haywire and here’s a few clips of Carano in action.
