Loved her in BSG, I'm excited to see what she can bring to the table.

Interesting. Can't wait to hear who she's playing.

Y'know what I'd really get a kick out of? Pam Anderson making a cameo as a character who doesn't get named (maybe just "Agent Jones") but we all know who she's supposed to be.

Booo. She needs to be an Amazon. Booo. Marvel better realize how lucky they are.

Maybe she will be Angela lol.

I say either Monica Rappaccini or Superia

Still not enough to get me watching this show again.

Posted by DrellAssassin

@loki2u: You should really give it another shot, the second half of that season (especially the final 6 episodes) were fantastic.

I could see her play Contessa, but then Nick Fury would have to be in the show regularly. Maybe Madame Hydra.

Not necessarily. All they need are a couple of lines referencing a past history.

Well if the reveal about Skye is that she is an Inhuman created as a result of Kree experimentation(the blue alien they found) on humans then maybe she could be Medusa or Crystal

@mercy_: Basically I suspect the main Cinematic universe will introduce Inhumans maybe without the mists, they can just be triggered by exposure to radiation etc. This would mean that they can introduce any number of characters(specifically minor villains) without lengthy explanation.

I wanted her as Hippolyta myself...

Posted by Protoflash

I'd say she'll either be carol danvers or medusa. Based entirely on her look alone. Also I really hope they don't make skye carol danvers like it looks like right now.. god she's a bad actress….

Batman of course when it's posted in a coupe of weeks.

And just read the great Squidder

Hail squid!

Why cant we just have a new Xena series?

Posted by Perfect 10

Maybe she will be Monica Chang since she is S.H.I.E.L.D.'s agent in charge of dealing with A.I. stuff and Age of Ultron is coming up in Avengers 2.

Carol Danvers

That was my thought too. The entire Wonder Woman forum probably feels the same way.

Let's hope she is Carol Danvers. She would kick so much ass!!

Posted by WheatStalker

Obviously Lucy Lawless will play the role of Skye's human mother, a former SHIELD agent herself.

Edited by Winter_Kills

I hope that she plays the Contessa or even Madame HYDRA. But, I agree she would also make a great Asgardian- & since we have Lorelei, maybe she could be Amora? She's sexy enough & that would be awesome as well.

I can see the latter, definitely:

@winter_kills: If she's going Asgardian, I'd like to see her take on the role of Valkyrie.

@winter_kills: If she's going Asgardian, I'd like to see her take on the role of Valkyrie.

I can agree with that. I can see that, too. She could pull of Valkyrie, definitely. She'd be awesome & hot in either role! Now the Thor fan in me is really hoping for her to be an Asgardian...

yes i agree with you, marvel is so lucky, she should be Hyppolita.

Posted by The_Titan_Lord

Nice.

Posted by Crimsonlord53

At 46 I don't see her playing the rough and tumble character's anymore so I doubt carol danvers or one of the asgardian.

She's what I call "aged to perfection". She can do it.
