Well, not a rumor so much as someone wanting the role. Personally, I think she's a good match:

I saw a note the other day where a Warner exec said that WW was still in 'development' (which I guess means scripting) and it was still on the agenda, but no dates for releasing funds and starting production had been defined.

Given what we heard earlier, its gated on getting a script that the execs like. Obviously, Whedon didn't make the cut (doesn't mean it was a bad script, just not the one they wanted) and new guys are hard at work on it.

My theory is that if Bionic Woman and Smallville make it this fall (establish commercial viability for superheroine roles), then the execs will be more willing to invest. For them, its simple: only fund projects that are likely to make them money.

Fortunately, cultural evolution is in our favor right now. The Why Not generation is ripe for this kind of role, but only if the script is written to appeal to them. But that's not a very wide window of opportunity. Those kids are in their late teens/very early twenties. Give it a few years and the next group of kids might be into something different.

hmmmm
not sure that that is a good match

now if they got ye oulde bottle of black hair dye out for the actress who played jessica/niki.....now then I'd give it a 60/40 chance

otherwise

I really can't see a 'Heroes' Lass getting it

then again

I also told all my mates that Bruce Willis was making a mistake leaving Moonlighting and trying to be an action hero with his new movie 'Die Hard' ....how wrong was I?

Well, if they wanted someone a little more buff (outside of FBB and Jessica Biel), I think Missy would be a good candidate. Cannot really tell from the pic but she is (or at least WAS) pretty statuesque and tight. If you ever saw "Stick It" (no jokes, please), she played a gymnast and was fairly buff in it. I LOVE Ali Larter and think she'd be a great candidate as well, though a little more waifish than an Amazon. But if Biel could bulk up like she did for Blade 3, I guess Ali could.....

There is so much strange BS news flying around out this that I wouldn't be surprised if the thing is either 100% dead or there will be some huge announcement that they have a script and actress committed to the project...

Well.....IESB.net (or something like that) is reporting the casting is locked and will be announced soon! Rumors also swirling that Megan Gale will play the Amazonia Princess who will have a smack down with Superman during the film at some juncture.

Keep in mind that IESB is the same outfit that announced that Tom Weiling was gonna be SM in the movie, which has been debunked since....

Hopefully, an announcement this week. As for Megan Gale as WW, they could do a lot worse! :)

I seems as if they've finally cast WW... Megan Gale from Australia. She looks like she has the right heroic specifications for a Greek goddess.

I found a few more picts...

First one is NSFW... the rest are fine for the office:

I like the fact they've cast someone tall, but for personal preference I hope she bulks up for the role, I just don't see Wonder Woman as being that skinny. I must admit i'm in two minds about this movie, Wonder Woman is probably my favorite comic book character (closely followed by Supergirl of course) so I would love to see a film featuring her, but some of the rumours circulating about how she will be portrayed in this film do not sound good. I just hope thats all they are, rumours.

I know they rejected Josh Whedon's script, but he had portrayed her as a teenage girl. (By his own admission, he can't make any movie or show without a teenage girl with superpowers).

So presumably the studio wanted WW to be older than Josh.

I haven't seen any other G2 regarding her character... what have you come across that discourages you?

As far as I know the Wonder Woman movie is in limbo, I think this actress has been cast for the Justice league of America movie and thats the movie i'm a bit dubious about

Supposedley some of the script have been leaked and I've attached a link to the article.

movieblog.ugo.com/index.php/movieblog/mo...ue_of_america_movie/

This ties up with another rumour I read on a different blog (I know I surf the web to much I need to get a life) stating Wonder Woman would be portrayed as a villain in the movie. With her history with Maxwell Lord in the Infinity Crisis comics, I can see this as a possibility.

I think that would be a good play (WW as a villain). The Amazons have definite ideas about what they'd like to do with the ''World of Men' (given its such a mess).

It would be good-hearted meddling, but we humans don't much care for any kind of meddling in our lives.

On the other hand, the villain concept of the movie may go a lot deeper. That would be a problem if WW wasn't portrayed as trying to go good (even if misguilded).
