It’s no secret that Gemma Arterton’s filmography so far has been less than stellar, critically if not financially. But while the films she’s appeared in may have been aiming low, nobody seems to have informed her of that. The most recent example being her role as the titular sister in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013).
Arterton has, so far, made a career out of elevating scripts with strong performances aided by her not-unpleasant looks. But if given a solid character to play – like, say, Wonder Woman, we have no doubt she’d convincingly sell the role. Or at the very least, welcome the challenge.
Since the biggest drawbacks to casting established actresses with mass appeal (Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale) in the role is the difficulty in suspending disbelief, Arterton is the best of both worlds. She’s stood out in problematic blockbusters already, but lacks a role that has come to define her – yet.
