My brother told me that Angelina Jolie (one of my favorite actresses) would have been perfect as Wonder Woman when she was younger, well i disagreed with him at first, but now I'm starting to think he might have been right. Angelina is very popular and was a great actress that preformed in a lot of action roles, like in Tomb Raider. Oh, and she's extremely hot!

So what do you guys think, would Angelina Jolie have been the perfect Wonder Woman?

i find it annoying that we need to stick on actors or actresses that have sufficient acting background just to portray comic characters. we need new, younger actor and actresses to deliver a different take on them

Nop, she's too old to play the Princess.

nowadays, but say Justice League was made in 2002, then I would be okay with it

10 years ago maybe. But not today.

Not now because the same reason everyone else has said, but maybe a while back that wouldn't have been a bad choice. She's not some great actress though, she's pretty meh imo.

I did mention that a "younger" Angelina would have been great, I do agree she is too old now.

Jolie is to old but she could play WW's mother.

Perhaps she could make a good Hippolyta today?

I think someone originating from a mediterranean country would be more suitable.

I thought so a long time ago...Then I saw Wanted. Jesus Christ, what a piece of tripe.

Still want Kelly Hu as WW.

She would have made an excellent Wonder Woman. It aggravates me though at how many people didn't bother to read the OP.

would have been perfect as Wonder Woman when she was younger

Ugh -- thank you. I was about to point out the same.

And I think Angelina would have been perfect. An "A" list actor (at the time being suggested) so a lot more attention would have been drawn to the film. Another actress who would have been awesome is Monica Bellucci. Oh well.

In the days of Tomb Raider, yeah I remember thinking it was a no-brainer.

my reply would still be the same. i don't feel angelina jolie being good enough for me to portary wonder woman even if she was younger. we need young bloods to deal a different take on it and there's a lot back then that can do that.

I wouldn't like have liked her as Diana back in the early nougties either.

That's one of the reasons I like Gal Gadot she has a great amazon look, and she's gorgeous.

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS CORRECT. ANYONE WHO DISAGREES MUCH BE ASSIMILATED!

But seriously, Wonder Woman isn't supposed to be this slender, model-perfect character. She needs to be at least a little bit buff.

I never thought she was that sexy, or a good actress really. Never was a big fan of Tomb Raider games, so I never was interested in the movie. Wanted was pretty lame. Salt? I fell asleep watching with my Gf at the time. Im drawing blanks right now but there's a few other movies I saw her in that we're decent I guess. She could work as WW about 10 or 12 years ago but like the previous comment said it takes a little bit more than what she had to offer to pull of a Comic Superhero accurately.

The only other movies I can think of are Gone in Sixty Seconds and Mr and Mrs Smith. I've never thought of her as that good an actress either.

I think the problem with Jolie at any point in her career is that all of her characters (that I've seen her as) are built around sex appeal. Wonder Woman, while sexy, is not all about sex, and I can't picture Jolie portraying that accurately. I know it's up to writers and director to make sure the story is done accurately, but at the same time when the actress is known for these roles it would have to be difficult not to put in bits that play to those strengths.

This, Even 5 years ago I could've seen her as WW but she's too old to play the role now

@mitran: Couldn't agree more. I've just never really been intised by female leads in action movies anyway though. Not to say a lady can't whoop someone's a** just as easy as a man could. It's just not as relatable. Which I don't feel a stand alone WW movie would be for me. But I'm getting off topic. There are plenty of young actress' today who could act circles around Jolie even in her prime imo.

@ccraft: Doubt she'd have been Wonder Woman but she'd have made a great Silver Swan! That bad girl has erotica villainess written all over her. She was going for "Alicia Silverstone" but the tattoo artist had dyslexia or something.

Dang, can't anyone read an OP? I said when she was younger she would have been great.
