Earlier today, we reported that Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion) was rumored to have screen-tested for the role of Wonder Woman. Now, we’re getting some additional reports that say the same, but also include Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) and Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) in the mix. It’s important to note that this trio has or will test for the female lead in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman. While some are quick to jump to the conclusion that the role is that of Diana Prince / Wonder Woman, it’s equally possible that it will end up being the love interest for Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), not that those two characters must be mutually exclusive. Hit the jump for more.
Variety is reporting that Kurylenko, Gadot and Yung are vying for the female lead of Batman vs. Superman. The casting description of “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic” certainly fits the image of each of the hopefuls, as well as the Amazonian princess, but it could also just be billionaire Wayne’s particular taste in women. Complicating matters is another news source citing slightly different information:
Since the cat seems to out of the bag…here’s what I heard: Wonder Woman will not be in Supes vs Batman. But a certain Diana may show up.
And I’m pretty confident these tests are not for WW, who will have a minor minor role. This is Supes vs Bats. Not Supes vs Bats vs WW.
There was an additional rumor that had Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World) meeting with Warner Bros. for the Wonder Woman role. This particular route should qualify as the longest shot as Alexander is already signed on to star in Marvel films, making the switch over to a DC property rather unlikely, yet not impossible. We’ll be sure to bring you confirmation of both the role and the woman who eventually lands it, but until then keep in mind that these are still rumors and an unknown or unreported talent could still swoop in.
