These days, it seems like an actress can’t break into the action movie lane without her name being tossed around the Interwebs as a possible candidate to play Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ long-stalled movie based on the Amazon heroine. Following a big fan push earlier this year to see Haywire star Gina Carano take on the role, comes the suggestion that John Carter‘s Lynn Collins should be considered for the part. Wonder Woman’s star power (no pun) doesn’t end there, as there is also an upcoming documentary that will explore the character’s impact on the cultural zeitgeist.

Compared to all that press Batman seems like small potatoes, but there is a new promo image that supposedly showcases Christian Bale’s costume in the upcoming Dark Knight Rises.

Lynn Collins as Wonder Woman?

Lynn Collins has over a decade in the movie biz, and has been in Comic-Con-friendly projects like True Blood and X-Men Origins: Wolverine - so she’s not exactly an unknown face within the geek community. However, Collins will almost certainly make it onto the mainstream radar after John Carter hits theaters this week; in the film she plays Dejah Throis (see above), princess of the Martian city of Helium, who falls in love with the titular confederate soldier.

Aside from sporting costumes that reveal her chiseled physique, Collins (as Dejah) also showcase some serious combat skills in the film – much to the surprise of Mr. Carter and the rest of us drooling boys. Watch what the actress had to say in response to a direct suggestion about her being a good candidate for the Wonder Woman movie:

Now, Collins is in no way shape or form attached to any Wonder Woman project, but having seen her work in John Carter I can say it’s an interesting thought – though, it’s hard to surpass the physicality and athleticism of someone like Gina Carano, who is pretty much a real-life amazon to begin with…

Wonder Woman Documentary

For those of you who have love for Wonder Woman and what she represents as a cultural icon, you’ll definitely want to check out the documentary by filmmaker Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, entitled Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines. The documentary starts with a look at the Wonder Woman character, and then expands its scope to look at feminism in American society, as inspired by the amazonian superhero.

The documentary features appearances by icons like ’70s Wonder Woman TV show star Lynda Carter, and the original Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, to name a few. Check out a trailer, clip and poster for Wonder Women! below:

So far we haven’t seen anything to indicate that Batman is going to be getting (yet another) costume makeover in The Dark Knight Rises - but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. Below you’ll see a promo image that is supposedly modeled after Christian Bale’s look as Batman in TDKR:

  1. Everybody should recognized that is not going to be easy to choose an actress to play the charater of Wonder Woman, y would easely chose Lynda Carter because of her beauty and sex appeal, even though she is a little old for that part in the mine of the rest of the public. I would pay money to see the movie with a real Wonder Woman not a fake, character…

  2. Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman will always be preferred over any actress know because of her wonderful and unique acting ability to portray a positive and powerful character that should have been rewarded with an Emmy award before it went of the air.

    Any new project for a New Movie about the superhero Wonder Woman will take a very specialized and perfect scouting to come up with somebody that will be able to maintain the required profile to play the roll as Lynda Carter did.

    The director of the new movie should consider to have Lynda Carter in the movie to share the leading roll as the original Wonder Woman along with the new Wonder Woman which ultimately will be chosen when the best possible actress is found to follow as a new apprentice for the next generation,in which ,Wonder Woman would pass the torch , then this movie would have then obtained a higher probability of competing with other blockbuster movies.
    Hopefully the producers will consider these comments.

  3. I think Lynn Collins is a perfect candidate. After watching her as Deja Thoris – was like seeing Wonder Woman in her. She’s perfect. And HOT

    • lynn collins is way to old. we need a woman in her early twenties. Lynda Carter was only 23yrs old when she did the pilot. I think we shoild pick an unknown actress because write now everyone who is being named is to old.
      Let`s get Douglas Cramer in on the casting he understands the character much better than david kelly does.

      • Why does she need to be in her early twenties?
        Christian Bale was 31 when he debuted as Batman, RDJ was 43 when he debuted as Iron man, Hugh Jackman was 32 when he debuted as Wolverine.

      • Wonder Woman needs to be a little older, if only for the inevitable Justice League movie. She needs to show the resolve and maturity that will make veterans like Superman and Batman – and let’s face it, the writers, directors and producers as well – take her seriously. She can’t just be a flavor-of-the-week starlet in a sexy costume. Lynn Collins brings that to the part. She is not Wonder Girl, she is Wonder Woman. If you want someone younger, let it be Wonder Woman’s younger sister.
