Oh, Wonder Woman. Will we ever see you and your tiara and truth-telling lasso on the big screen? Ever? Maybe. The latest comic book movie rumor has Katie Holmes hoping to slip on the tiara and bullet-deflecting bracelets. According to sources, Katie Holmes recently flew back to Los Angeles from German (where she was watching hubby Tom Cruise shoot “Valkyrie”, we presume) to talk to her people about winning the role of Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, an Amazonian Princess who left her island to see the world of men. How she ends up walking around in her undies is just way too complicated to discuss here.
“The movie’s only at the discussion state, but Katie feels this role as a kick-ass superhero will put her back in the public eye,” the source says. “She wants to show her stuff, and she wants to prove that she can stand on her own two feet without Tom’s help. Tom, at times, feels compelled to oversee Katie’s career, but Katie is bent on doing this alone. She actually scheduled the meeting when she knew Tom wasn’t going to be able to be there.” Cruise has been filming the WWII themed Valkyrie in Berlin since July.
The long-gestating project has gone through numerous hands (Joss Whedon tried to bring it to the big screen, but gave up), and it’s still anyone’s guess if it’ll ever get made. And Katie Holmes isn’t exactly an in-demand actress right about now.
Also, it’s a wonder if any studio is willing to put up with Katie and her “Cruise baggage”…
