1.Joss Whedon is looking for someone young, and an actor that is not well known.

2.Someone who has an islandish look

3.Good in action scenes

4.Would look stunning in the WW coustume

5.would look so very hot in a WW costume(sorry that's my faut) and could pass for Amazonian

6. Can act very well, and could carry the movie with ease

If reading the top six statements at any time you thought of Summer Glau, then you are correct, and deserve a prize. I want SG to play wonder Woman so badly, that If she doesn't get the role I might not even see it. I hope Whedon is at least considering her for the film. The greatest female superhero of all time should be played by Summer Glau.

Ha! That's actually not a bad suggestion! But is she a bit too small?

When they first mentioned the role I thought of Gina. She's got that taller, more amazonish look to me.

She not really amazonian, though. Now Gina, she's amazonian. I would love to see Gina as Wonder Woman, but I'm sure there are those stupid purists who will raise an almighty uproar if Wonder Woman was black. Bah!
I've thought of Summer before, though. A few people have brought up Jessica Alba and my response to that has always been "If you're going to cast someone petite, cast Summer! At least she can move like an athlete!"
Morena has also been discussed.
You know who I really like, though is Erica Durance. She's got the body and the build for it, and can also kick some ass.
That's just me, though.

personally I would love to see Summer in the role, she was a real action hero in 'Serenity' and I think she could carry Wonder Woman with ease....

but I also think that Morena Baccarin has the right exotic look, with kind of an ageless goddess quality

but I also think that Gina Torres has the height and dignity and beauty for Wonder Woman

I hope that Joss can hire one of the actresses from Firefly/Serenity... but of course I'll go see it no matter who is in it!

Haha, I think I've just been blinded!! I agree with Summer playing Wonder Woman, she would be great, my only problem with it is that she doesn't seem to have quite the right manner about her, but maybe that's just because the only part I've seen her play is River, who is somewhat weak(well, except when she's kicking reaver butt!) Not exactly weak, but she breaks down...I hope everyone knows what I mean. I would rather see Gina play Wonder Woman, she already played a warrior woman I would like to see Summer in the role though, playing such a different character. Joss will get it right I'm sure.

Summer could pull it off. Pete Jackson made so many scale changes in LOTR, why not for Summer too.
GT would be a great Wonder Woman. Screw the color difference, she'd be great.
Okay, Linda Carter/wonder Woman was one of my first crushes as a child. Talk about goin' all squishy in the brainpan when Morena as Wonder Woman was mentioned.
Ummm, may have to go to my bunk for a bit.

While Summer might be great as Wonder Woman, there would be much ridicule for casting her. (And how much say will Joss have in the casting process anyway?)

So Summer's website says she's 5'8" tall. Not what I would call petite.

Reading that intrigued me, so I did a search on the height of the other actors. Here's what I found:

1. Summer 5'8" or alternatively one place listed her as 5' 5 1/2"
2. Morena: 5'7 3/4"
3. Gina: 5'10"
4. Jewel: 5' 5 1/2"
5. Nathan: 6'1/2"
6. Sean: 5'10"
7. Alan: 5'11"
8. Ron: 5'11"
9. Adam: 6'4"

Tall cast....

Ok, I take it back, then, she's not petite. Never mind. She'd be perfect.

I LOVE Summer as much as the next guy or girl,whatever the case may be, but the fact is she's too small to play Wonder Woman. I always imagined Wonder Woman as a 5'11'' or 6' woman with curves, Summer, though I love her so, just doesn't have the shape or height to play Wonder woman. if she were a few inches taller and a little rounder maybe. Perhaps Gina could play wonder woman, Who knew Summer was a quarter of an inch taller than Morena! I originally thought about Morena(playing Wonder Woman), but now realize she's not really tall enough.

Summer in superhero boots(slight lifts) could reach well over 6 feet. I still think she's perfect.

On a sad(and slightly different) note, I have already heard that Warner Brothers isn't liking the direction Whedon is taking Wonder Woman. WHAT THE HELL????
Does this guy have the worst luck with studios, and networks, or is it just me?

There is a thing called trust. If they would just look at his track record(reviews of his shows, sales of his shows on dvd) and leave him alone to do what he wants, they would realize they don't have to worry. They are probably spooked that Superman Returns didn't do that great, but they shouldn't take it out on Joss.

Well, they're the ones who messed up Superman Returns. They can hardly blame Joss for that!
I mean, come on, they had the whole setup going with Smallville, this whole backstory, and then they completely pre-emt it, do something out of left field that's a not only predictable but actually stupid plot... What did they expect?
Well, I've never credited WB with an overabundance of brains. They're all about the comercialism. Look what they did to Harry Potter

Summer is gorgeous and she's proven she can carry an action role. However she's not what I picture when I think AMAZON. Gina and Morena both are more "Amazonish" to me. Curves and a kick-assibility all rolled into one. I'm now drooling on my keyboard. One thing in Summer's favor IMO is she looks so young (youngest in our verse cast to me anyways) and from what I've heard it's going to be someone YOUNG. I'll probably be dreaming of our lovely sexy cast tonight. I don't think I've ever seen a group of more genetically blessed and talented individuals. I would love to see one of our Serenifly women get the part, no matter who it is.

The only other female cast member we haven't mentioned on this thread is Jewel. She name drops WonderWoman to Joss in her letter/blog whathaveyou :

Yeah, I still say she doesn't really look like an amazon. On the other hand, the more I picture it, the better it sounds. She would be a cute, smokin' hot Wonder Woman. She's got the face shape for it, too.

I think Summer would be okay but far from perfect, she's too young looking and too thin even though she is atheltic,tall,brunette,and gorram sexy.There's a rumor Morena Baccarin is going to play the part, she's even been put down on IMDB to play WW but is labeled as rumored,but Joss said he would use someone he's never worked with before.

I agree.

I think Summer would look great and could be up to all the action sequences but, she is not my image of Wonder Woman. Dark hair is a bottle of dye away for any actress and many have pretty good bodies.

I always thought Wonder Woman was supposed to be a bit like the goddess Athena. Classic grecian looks, a touch of maturity and wisdom and a truly statuesque form are important features that would be weaknesses for summer. I think Morena easily has two of the three and Hollywood can be pretty good at making actors a bit larger than life.

1. Summer is not short, she is of a good hight.

2. While I think she would make a good wonder woman I still hope she does not take the part, the reason for this is two fold, I don't like Wonder Woman and I don't want to see Summer pigeon holed into action roles.

Why does everyone think Summer is so short? 5'8" is not my idea of short. Besides, like I said with the Wonder Woman boots(slight lifts included) she would be over 6 feet tall.

The Amazon thing-OK, I agree she doesn't exactly fit the bill of Amazon, but then again neither do 98% of female actors out there.

Wonder Woman should be at least 6 feet tall, and she should have a regal disposition. Summer's too short for the part, and she does not come off as regal. She still looks too much like a teenager.

So you don't think Summer Glau should be Wonder Woman, point taken. Dou you have an idea of who should be cast as WW, or don't you care?

Oh Lord no, Wondergirl maybe but Wonder Woman? I don't think so.

And sorry to the Gina lovers (I'm one of them) but Wonder is from ancient Greece, Amazons. Greek. Maybe Moreena but I can't see her doing the whole superhero thing.

No, Joss should go with a total unknown like they did with Reeves who made Superman interesting. My two cents.
