It certainly sounds like all those rumors of Wonder Woman showing up in more than just a bit part in Zack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman” may be true after all. Or not. Who knows at this point, given that Warner Bros. is still trying to catch up to Marvel and understand this whole newfangled interconnected movie universe thingy that all the crazy kids are wild for out there.

So, what about Wonder Woman?

Jaimie Alexander in Thor The Dark World (2013) Movie PosterWhile out promoting “Thor: The Dark World”, actress Jaimie Alexander, who plays Lady Sif in the film, has been talking up a chat she’s had with D.C. and Marvel about “Batman vs. Superman”. I’m not sure if this means something is actually happening, or if being the smarty pants that she is, Alexander is trying to gin up fanboy interest to convince the studio to do something with her. After all, if you’re not self-promoting in Hollywood, you’re just not doing your job as a celebrity.

Here’s what Alexander recently told Forbes, and you can decide for yourself:

I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her… Being in the comic book world, we know a lot of the same people at DC and Marvel, so we hear a lot of things, but it’s all speculation right now. But I would absolutely love that [Wonder Woman appearing in one of the upcoming films]. Thankfully and gratefully, I’m appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that’s been pretty amazing.

So yeah, I have no idea what’s going on there, if anything.

But I guess the idea of the actress who plays such a kickass role in “Thor” landing the Wonder Woman role in “Batman vs. Superman” (or wherever she ends up first at Warner) makes sense to a lot of people, and they just don’t see how the studios can’t see it, too.

I actually think it makes pretty good sense myself. She’s still relatively young at only 29, so she could carry a possible Wonder Woman franchise for a good decade. Anyways, the fact that she’s talking to D.C. and Marvel may mean that she’s trying to get permission to do a D.C. movie. It’s entirely possible Marvel might balk at that, but it’s not as if actors haven’t crossed over between comic book movie universes before. Ryan Reynolds has played both a Marvel character (Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) and the Green Lantern for D.C., though admittedly that was a Fox movie and not a Marvel Marvel movie.

So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

And oh yeah, Alexander confirms that there will be a third “Thor” movie. Given that “Thor: The Dark World” is already breaking box office records overseas, that seems like a no-brainer, no?

    Well she is already playing a similar role so why not? SHe’s not bad to look at, has the look, and is a decent actress. Bring it!

    She would make a great Wonder Woman! The duelling studios aspect may make it a bit difficult to hold onto both roles though. I love her as Sif but she is just a minor character in the Thor films. It would be a much better career choice it would seem to take the role of Wonder Woman for an interconnected D.C. film universe project. Maybe Marvel will write her a larger part in the next Thor film to persuade her to stay.

    Well I loved her as lady Sif so why not?
    Thor this weekend, yeah baby!

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    From wikipedia, yes not the best source, but still cited, ” Hemsworth stated that he is contracted for another Thor film and two more Avengers films but would be happy to keep going, if people want more”
    You see that RDJ! No “pay me 40 million or I’m not Iron Man no more” crap just good ole fashioned love and appreciation for the fans.

      LOL. I think he wants the money cause he doesn’t think the stories would be good for more solo IM films. Personally I’d like to see them continue on with RDJ as the brians, but Cheadle as the man in the suit, be it IM or WM. Just an idea on how to change things up. Have Tony have to save Rhodey at the end of an adventrue forcing him back into the armor.

        You said Brian, lol! You sound like that Brain in Igor.
        Off course bagging 40 million dollars for a few months work has absolutely nothing to do with it.
        You have any idea what you can do with that money here in South Africa?
