Another day, another chance to toss out an unsubstantiated casting and/or plot guess about an upcoming blockbuster with no real concrete evidence whatsoever. Today’s target: Batman Vs. Superman, and possibility of Wonder Woman being in it (because we’re just gonna say she is, ok?).
After already reporting that the internet had decided that Jaimie Alexander had been cast as Wonder Woman because the Great and Powerful Internet had deemed it so (hey, she does apparently have access to the Batman Vs. Superman script, and is in talks with Warner Bros. over some form of casting), it seems that Warner Bros. is defying us, The Internet, and is testing other actresses for a role that Variety reports is either Bruce Wayne’s girlfriend… or Wonder Woman.
Apparently Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Gal Gadot (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), and Elodie Yung have all read for a role described as “tall, brunette, athletic, and exotic.” Of course, that makes no mention of an invisible airplane or a lasso that makes people tell the truth, so what kind of “facts” are we supposed to make out of that?!?
Batman Vs. Superman is set for a July 17, 2015 release date.
What do you think of the casting news?
