The 5 Wonder Woman Movie Actresses We Deserved

3 comments
We're still waiting on seeing some moving picture footage of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Her casting announcement and subsequent image as Wonder Woman have been met with mixed reactions. While this article is not going to delve into whether or not I think she'll do a good job, I will state that I think your opinion is valid, whatever it is. If you think she'll do great, I hope you're right! If you think she'll be horrible, I hope you're pleasantly surprised. In the Internet, land of extreme opinions, I thought I'd at least start out with a call for rationality.

Regardless of whether or not you think she's a good casting choice, it's at least worth getting excited about the fact that Wonder Woman will finally be making her big screen debut. A Wonder Woman movie has been rumored for years. On the live action front, we've seen some television, but nothing official since Lynda Carter hung up the satin tights. Adrianne Palicki starred in a TV pilot that wasn't picked up. That has subsequently been leaked and many have seen it. We even talked about it on episode 150 of the podcast. The closest we appear to have gotten to seeing her on the big screen was a Justice League movie where Megan Gale was cast as Wonder Woman back in 2008. That project fell apart. I look forward to someday seeing test shots and hearing more about that project. I suspect someone is putting together a Kickstarter now as they do for all these dead comic book movies.

Comic fans have been playing "casting agent" for years. And it used to be a pretty harmless game because until around 2000, none of our movies got made. Now the movies are getting made and sometimes we're not happy with the choice because it doesn't match our perception of the character we've been reading on the four-colored page for 20 years. Again, that's okay. At least, I hope it is, because I've been playing casting agent for years myself. And specifically, I've been casting Wonder Woman almost all my life.

Here are five actresses that I wish had been given the opportunity to play Wonder Woman on the big screen...
