A Trio of Lovely Ladies Have Tested for Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman

Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman

According to sources (i.e. what I’ve read online via this Variety article), Wonder Woman won’t actually make an appearance in Zack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman”, but her human alter ego, Diana, will.

Or not.

The trade doesn’t exactly know what role “Fast and Furious'” Gal Gadot, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s” Elodie Yung and former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko recently tested for, just that they recently did their thing for Zack Snyder, and the role they’re competing for will either be that of Diana (aka Wonder Woman) or Bruce Wayne’s girlfriend.

Gal Gadot is ready for some Bat action.

Gal Gadot is ready for some Bat action.

Given that all three women have a history of playing kick-ass heroines in the past, I’m gonna go out on a limb that they don’t need someone who can kick Bruce Wayne’s ass to play his girlfriend. There are a few gazillion leggy models who can do that job that doesn’t require actually auditioning.

This sounds very much like Wonder Woman or bust here, especially given the description of the character as “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic”.

Elodie Yung

You want a Wonder Woman with legs? Elodie Yung has legs.

Gadot, Yung, and Kurylenko certainly fit all three criteria, with Yung being the shortest at 5’7″. Both Gadot and Kurylenko are listed at 5’9″ to 5’10”. Makes sense for Wonder Woman to have the height, since Affleck and Cavill are both over six feet tall, so it’s not like whoever wins this role will be acting across Tom Cruise.

Zack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman” is already shooting, but won’t open until July 17, 2015.

Yes, if you’re keeping track at home, 2015 means “The Avengers 2″, “Star Wars: Episode 7″, and “Batman vs. Superman”. Man, if you love comic book movies, this is sure a hell of a good time to be alive, kids.

Olga Kurylenko

Olga Kurylenko is daydreaming of a Wonder Woman role.

    Interesting. All are super hot but none are particularly spectacular actresses.

      I also noticed that they’re all non-English speakers, and all have obvious accents. It gives you an idea of what they’re thinking about with Wonder Woman, which is apparently an “exotic foreigner” type.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        I was also thinking that there’s nothing in comic book lore to suggest WW speaks with an eastern European accent.

  • Abel Quesada

    And what about Lynn Collins? she was pretty awesome in John Carter.

    • ErickKwon

      She would be pretty cool. Recall her Dejah Thoris was pretty badass.

  • Fuckyouzacksnyder

    First Ben Affleck and now an actress who is practically skin and bones
    Wonder Woman has to be played by a talented actress not just a pretty face
    this movie already sucks

    • Aegon the Conqueror

      Just give the plane a chance to emerge from the hangar before trying to shoot it down. Sheesh! Its not like michael bay is directing and megan fox is playing WW.

        I know it could be worse, but it should be better

  • ErickKwon

    It’s a shame Antje Traue already played Faora. For all intents and purposes, Faora was a preview of what a good Wonder Woman actress should be: intense, actioney, beautiful, and makes a ridiculous costume work. Gadot, Yung and Kurylenko are certainly beautiful, but Gadot and Kurylenko tend to look fragile and super-modelish onscreen, and even though I’m Asian myself, I think Wonder Woman should be white

    The only woman who could hold the power and agility, the finesse and strength the moment she appeared on screen as Wonder Woman would be MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ!

    Nope, nope, nope.

    Keep trying.

    I was hoping for Stana Katic. If Nightwing is in the movie I’d want someone like Adam Gregory.
