Megan Fox: ‘Wonder Woman Is A Lame Superhero’

wonder woman megan fox Megan Fox: Wonder Woman Is A Lame Superhero

The Wonder Woman movie is a project that has been in-development for years and years now. It has been off and on since way back in 2005 (at least), until earlier this year when it was reported that Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures were trying to get the project moved along (finally), looking for a good spec script and the “right” director to bring the female superhero to the big-screen.

Hollywood hottie-of-the-minute Megan Fox has ben rumored to play Wonder Woman in the movie version, and this was only further sparked when a fan-made image of her in the outfit made its way online (shown above and below). However, like the rumors of her taking over from Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, Fox has denied speculation that she would play Wonder Woman.

But if you’re thinking she might want to do it if asked… not only does she deny she’s been approached, but she flat-out disses the character and the idea of a movie featuring her:

“Wonder Woman is a lame superhero… She flies around in her invisible jet and her weaponry is a lasso that makes you tell the truth. I just don’t get it. Somebody has a big challenge on their hands whoever takes that role but I don’t want to do it.”

Megan Fox as Wonder Woman

Wow, Fox certainly doesn’t shy away from saying what she thinks. Not only does it appear that she doesn’t like the character, but that she doesn’t “get” her…. Having said that, I have to say I’m kind of in agreement with her. I won’t go as far to say the character is “lame,” but as superheroes go, I don’t think she’d be the first one I’d set up as my next tentpole movie project (although, perhaps that isn’t fair to say since this has been a project in-development for years, even before other superhero movies were made).

Also, I’m not sure if a Wonder Woman movie would do all that well at the box office. It certainly wouldn’t tank, but I don’t think it would be the smash success that films like The Dark Knight and Iron Man were (I think more along the lines of The Incredible Hulk). On the other hand we ARE talking about Megan Fox in a low cut top and short skirt, bounding about and flying through the air…

Sadly, as it has been for a while now, there is no official news yet as to which creative direction the Wonder Woman movie will go – with neither a writer nor director in tow – but at least we know now who most likely will not be donning that outfit.

What do you think of Megan Fox’s comments about Wonder Woman? Since she most likely won’t play the character, who do you think should play her instead?

  1. i guess all i need to say is “Shut up, meg.”

  2. I haven’t read all the comments, however, if I had to choose an actress to play Wonder Woman I would choose an entirely different Megan – Megan Gale. Not saying that Fox wouldn’t look fantastic, but Gale is more what I would envision Wonder Woman as. More ‘Amazonian’ ;)

    • Eh, many actors/actresses don’t know a part before they are approached/sign up for said part. I don’t think her not knowing the character should disqualify her from playing the part. Who’s to say Angelina Jolie knew what Lara Croft was about when she accepted the part? And that’s just one of several dozens of examples. That being said, she’s clearly not interested in taking the part, and whatever her reasons may be for that, that’s how things stand. If this movie ever gets made (and I for one hope it does), I pray it will the character justice. Let’s face it, Wonder Woman is fanboy/girl material and anyone that doesn’t know her doesn’t give a rat’s ass about it. That’s the audience they should be focusing on and the best way to please said audience is to stick close to the original material. When there are more then rumors flying around, we’ll be able to better speculate on the subject at hand.
      Personally, I’m glad Megan Fox is unlikely to play her, but that’s just a personal opinion that doesn’t make any difference to anyone but me. It’s not like any of us have any real say over who it’ll be. If anyone.

  3. I just think that WW should be made and without fail. The whole iconic tale should be told with a very good, modern grounded script as the audience of today is far more sophisticated than even 10 years ago. My take on the whole ethos of WW:

    Obviously bring the story up to date with a slightly re-imagined origin story that would begin in WW’s home world. A crisis of some sort with a fierce enemy that is hellbent on destroying her world and the world of men. After almost decimating her world with its minions, she vows revenge to destroy the enemy as she follows it to the world of modern men. As a princess she has powers but these are given to her so that she can carry out her mission to destroy the enemy and its minions. The powers are:
    flight, strength, ultra fast reflexes(deflecting bullets and other weapons), unique fighting style that is as good as any current martial arts and a fierce determination with a zero tolerance for baddies and bullies. Her uniform would also be less flamboyant and more in the style of Greek military garb. She also has a sword which she has a focused power that is sourced from within her. This is her most powerful weapon.
    To play her I would like to see Monica Bollucci, Lena Headley or Erica Durance. She has to be unskinny with a good height(5’8+). Thats all I have to say..

  4. I think that Megan Fox would be one of the best woman to play the character Wonder Woman, she has it all to play the role as Wonder Woman, she would make that movie the best, she should take the part because one she is perfect to be Wonder Woman, two she will get payed to be the charter, even if she don’t want to do it she should for all her fans, and she will get paid for it done deal we get what we want and she gets the money for the part. Well I really hope she will take the role as Wonder Woman I would definitely watch that movie.

  5. Megan may look like Wonder Woman, but I don’t see her as a warrior princess.
    To me the role should go to OLIVIA WILDE!

  6. Rachel Weisz would be an amazing Wonderwoman :)

  7. y should megan fox be wonder woman? if she doesnt want to do but she takes it anyway she wouldnt do a very good job in acting it out. but i do agree with the oliva wilde thing. i also agree with megan gale and lena heade.y

  8. I think wonder woman is a prettty cool super hero for a girl.I also think dat shes better then bat girl.So my reason is dat megan fox should play the role as a formal super hero female,it would be most thrilling too see megan fox as a super hero than a evil person who feeds off boys(jennifer body)…

  9. I don’t wanna piss off the Wonder Woman fans out there but if she doesn’t want the role because she thinks the character is lame, that’s her prerogative. Fox is gorgeous & might B perfect 4 the part but if she isn’t feeling the character she might do more harm than good. I’m sure Wonder Woman has lots of powers but they come off making her kinda lame. A boomerang tiara? The lasso of truth? What about those ricochet bracelet bullet deflector thingys? Oh & lets not 4get the invisible plane. C’mon, really? Though she does have super strength that matches superman. Now we’re talking. They should have given her the power of flight but then U might as well call her Supergirl. I feel bad because there is potential there but when they try 2 upgrade her abilities she comes out looking like another hero. I grew up having 2 watch the 70′s series because there was only 1 t.v. in the house & my sisters would beat me up so I can appreciate this woman but since I was going through puberty, I thought more of being stuck on the island with all the Amazon woman. Who knows? A Wonder Woman movie might come out awesome with the right actress. Look @ Captain America. I grew up watching the Spiderman cartoons & never liked Captain America. I’ve got 2 admit, the Captain America movie was done extremely well! What a great movie. The Wonder Woman might go the same route…

    • For someone that grew up in the seventies and should be forty years old at least you have terrible spelling. I expect someone that is thirty years my senior to not use chat speak.

  10. Rly? Megan fox as wonder woman! .. um, no. I understand theyre trying to make megan fox the new angelina jolie, the ‘kickass female icon who just happened to be sexy as hell while doing it,’ but out of all the women they could have chosen to play wonder woman they chose megan fox. No offense to the “big shot producers” this one is a bad choice guys.

  11. Give the fans what they want!. oh well. She could play a whore.. no wait she did that. aaah a role she understood.

  12. What about Ali Landry. Miss USA

  13. Well I think Megan Fox would have made a great wonder woman. But I would like to tell her she sucks for saying that. As a little girl, wonder woman was my hero. My mother used to draw me pictures of her. But if I had to guess who should play her…I would say the sucubus, Bo on Lost Girl. Also, there are things that could be changed about the character of Wonder Woman to make her more marketable. SHE SHOULD’VE BEEN INCLUDED ON THE AVENGERS that’s about to come out. That would’ve been a great way to break the New Womder Woman out for all the little girls of the world.

    • Sorry Wonder Woman is from DC not Marvel.

    • …..Wonder Woman in the Avengers? I…am pretty sure that DC wouldn’t want one of their characters hanging out in the Marvel Universe….but maybe I’m wrong.

  14. Oh or the chick on Underworld would make a great Wonder Woman

    • kate beckensale would make a good wonder woman. she can act has maturity and has a few hit movies under her belt…..and shes hot good call mandeidavis i didnt even think of her a wonder woman til u mentioned it.

  15. With all these super hero movies I started to think who would be a great Wonder Woman?? So far I think Gina Carano as warrior Princess of the Amazons. Not Megan Fox!! “Distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to a world torn by the hatred of men.” And she can kick ass!! But I think she needs to be introduced through another super hero movie, then maybe her own movie.

  16. Or Michelle Rodriguez

  17. OLIVIA WILDE, she got those mysterious eyes.

  18. Kathrine McPhee would be my choice for wonder woman. When you realize this I want a commission for the referral! Make this happen already! I’m tired of waiting!

  19. i think megan fox is one of those actresses who is to big for her bridges. the only hit shes been in was transformers (correct me if im wrong im honestly not sure.) and that role she acts like shes better then some roles. no i agree with the guy who wrote this article wonder woman isnt the best superhero but most people grew up with the show being on the air and nostalgia brings people to the movie theater. i havent seen megan fox in anything recently so i cant imagine shes super book but yet she still runs her mouth. yes shes hot but i think with this attitude she has she will fade away quickly and come back when shes like 40 playing the mom role on the third remake of 90210. sometimes i need more then T&A when seeing a hot girl act theres alot of hot girls in movies she can be replaced.

  20. With the right minds put together i think they could make a kick a** wonder woman movie. To bad Megan Fox dont think so. She would be the perfect selection.

  21. She does have a point, ww is the lamest super heroine there is. I mean c’mon the lasso of truth lol this ain’t the 40′s anymore. Dc give us a flash movie :)

  22. If Megan Fox doesn’t wanna play the role then she just shouldn’t and people should not even expect her to since she thinks WW is lame. So in my suggestion i also think that Megan Gale has the PERFECT body and FACE to play the role of Wonder Women. I cant wait until they finally start working on the movie and they better get the right girl cuz WW is unique in every way!! And i mean it!

  23. Imagination dumb but, kids love that! I’m 17 and I love comics, and I love the Old 70′s show of Wonder woman with Lynda carter

  24. I think Cobie Smulders could play Wonder Woman. She is well known around the world because of her show “How I met your mother”, and also known for The Avengers as “Maria Hill”. Her eyes are like Wonder Woman’s eyes, her hair long as Wonder Woman’s and her body is perfect, she is in the 10 top list of the people who should play WW for the Director Michael Goldenberg and writer Joss Whedon, also David E. Kelly ” Michele PfeIffer” Husband is also going to be writing the script with Joss Wheldon. Adrianne Palicki will NOT play WW. If you need more details got to the DC or Warner Brothers page. Thank you.

  25. I’m glad that Megan will not be the newest Wonder Woman. She’s not Wonder Woman material..
    I don’t know who would be good for it but someone who represents who Wonder Woman is should be found. Also i hope they find a good writer and director who could actually make the movie good

  26. Megan Gale

  27. Wow

  28. Nice
