While on the set of Takashi Shimizu’s upcoming airplane based horror film 7500, I got to sit down with a few other journalists and Leslie Bibb. We’ll have the full set report closer to the film’s release date, but today we have a little scoop on her upcoming role as Wonder Woman. Seriously. Kinda. Bibb plays the superhero in a segment of Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s comedy anthology Movie 43. Her short features Jason Sudekis as Batman, Bobby Cannavale (The Other Guys) as a “jacked-up” Batman, Kristen Bell as Supergirl, and John Hodgman as Penguin. Hit the jump to see what Bibb had to say about her stint as Wonder Woman and the segment as a whole (which also stars Justin Long and Uma Thurman), and to watch the original short that inspired their version called Robin’s Big Date.
Bibb: The Farrelly Brothers did this compilation of these shorts and there’s a whole slew of us. Hugh Jackman did one, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet. Mine is, me and Jason Sudeikis and Justin Long and Bobby Cannavale and um…John Hodgman is the Penguin. And Bobby Cannavale is a jacked up Superman who smokes. And we all are like these fucked up superheroes. Like, I’m sleeping with Batman [Sudeikis]. He won’t call me back. I’m kind of crazy. And we’re at this dating mixer. Uma Thurman is, I think is Supergirl and Kristen Bell is Supergirl and Uma Thurman is Lois Lane or something. And we’re all just dysfunctional superheroes, like superheroes who just can’t get a date. So we’re all at this speed dating thing. So, I’m Wonder Woman and I have on this amazing wig and the whole getup, which was pretty fantastic. And I’m crazier than bat shit. Like, she is really crazy, so it was really fun because I know Jason and he won’t call me back and I love him and he just doesn’t care about me. And so it proved to be a good time.
Here’s the original short that inspired the new version:
