The cast for Wonder Woman's latest animated movie Wonder Woman: Bloodlines has reportedly been revealed and actress Rosario Dawson appears to have the starring role. Wonder Woman: Bloodlines will be the fourth animated movie that DC plans to release this year. The first film, Reign of the Supermen, which continued the storyline of Death of Superman, has already been released, and a Batman: Hush movie (set in the same universe as Reign) is upcoming. Meanwhile, an unrelated, in terms of continuity, Justice League vs. The Fatal Five is in the works which is being overseen by Batman: The Animated Series' Bruce Timm and it sports a similar visual style.
While there are few confirmed details about Wonder Woman: Bloodlines, the casting news seems to suggest it will belong to the former framework of DC animated films. Rosario Dawson has been the official voice of Diana since 2015's Justice League: The Throne of Atlantis. Dawson replaced Michelle Monaghan from 2015's Justice League: War but has continued the character work done for Wonder Woman since that movie. Bloodlines should be Dawson's biggest Wonder Woman spotlight yet; even though there is no obvious comic book source for the film, unlike DC's recent animated features.
The reported voice cast for Wonder Woman: Bloodlines comes courtesy of Revenge of the Fans. The online publication claims to have received the entire main cast for Wonder Woman: Bloodlines. None of the actors including Dawson have had their roles revealed just yet. Some educated guesses can be made based on their history of voice acting and the potential plot for Bloodlines. The cast is as follows:
- Rosario Dawson (Marvel's Daredevil)
- Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)
- Adrienne C. Moore (Orange is The New Black)
- Constance Zimmer (House of Cards)
- Courtenay Taylor (Skylanders Academy)
- Cree Summer (Guardians of The Galaxy TV series)
- Kimberley Brooks (DC Super Hero Girls)
- Marie Avgeropoulos (The 100)
- Michael Dorn (Justice League Action)
- Mozhan Marno (The Black List)
- Ray Chase (Voltron)
As mentioned there's no Wonder Woman storyline that readily relates to the subtitle of Bloodlines. However Revenge of the Fans also uncovered that the codename of the movie was "Swan Song." While this could be a red herring or meaningless, Swan Song is a phrase with an actual Wonder Woman tie-in. "Swan Song" is the name of a comic storyline from 2018 where Diana's old friend and current nemesis The Silver Swan returned to attack her. The Silver Swan has a complicated history in DC Comics but her most simplified backstory is that she used be Wonder Woman's adopted little sister Vanessa Kapatelis. Vanessa loved Diana but she was manipulated and experimented on by Wonder Woman's enemies. This turned her into the tech-assisted supervillain Silver Swan.
This is pure speculation but Wonder Woman: Bloodlines adapting the Silver Swan's story would make sense, especially with some members of the cast. Vanessa and her mother Julia, who shelters Wonder Woman when she first comes to America, are both of Greek descent. Actresses Nia Vardalos and Marie Avgeropoulos also come from Greek families. It doesn't seem like too much of a stretch to assume that the pair will voice Julia and her daughter Vanessa. From her work on The 100, Avgeropoulos definitely has experience playing a young girl who is twisted into a warrior by circumstance.
As for the rest of the cast, there's not a whole lot more to go on to guess at the film's plot or whom the cast will be playing. With a name like Bloodlines, it would be reasonable for the film to at least feature a flashback appearance by Wonder Woman's mother Queen Hippolyta or perhaps even her father Zeus. Neither has appeared in the continuity of animated DC movies that began with Justice League: War. Unfortunately none of the actors' previous voice work hints at them playing Hippolyta, Zeus or any other character in Wonder Woman canon.
Wonder Woman: Bloodlines does not yet have a release date but is expected to come out in 2019.
