I was looking at some actresses for who i thought could play Thundra if she ever decided to show up in a live action movie (which i doubt lol) (but it never hurts to dream right?) but anyway i realized that this actress in particular to me looks almost exactly like thundra. Her name is rachelle lefevre, unfortunately she is known for being in the films series known as twilight :(. but i really dont care now after realizing this. I'll show a comparison between the two. Do you think she could play a good thundra? i think she could if she could pack on some muscle for the role. If you think im wrong then who do you think could play a good Thundra?
 

 you gotta admit, she looks quite similar.

first off, got to compliment you on your love of our Lady Of Femizonia.
great taste in characters! second, im not familiar with Mr.Lefevre,
but she has good credentials for acting, and you definatly picked
a perfect look. question: how are her action skills?

@CATMANEXE: 
Thank you, i really appreciate that. I like the character quite a bit obviously cause i pretty much post about her whenever i can, and i think its cause i see some seriously awesome potential in her character that i wish marvel could see.Well the closest thing she's been in that's related to action is the twilight series, but she also appeared in a short lived tv show known as the summit that sounds kind of actiony. Though everyone has to start somewhere with learning action so even if she doesn't have the most experience with action, i'm sure she could learn fast judging by her credentials.

Here's my nominee:


Her name is Amanda Righetti and she's in The Mentalist. She's already pretty buff.

@Jotham: 
That's a good choice too. she could be a good thundra, 
 
But there's something about lefevre's face and hair that screams Thundra to me.

@TheJuggernautpunch:   yeah, i was surfing the web last night and i found her on the internet, her name is Rachelle Lefevre and it hit me that she would make a perfect Thundra. it'd be interesting to see where a Thundra film would go don't you think?

@TheJuggernautpunch: 
That would make sense considering in her reality they are at war. she would probably need an intimidating male villain though. should i start a new thread for this? i think i should
#10 Edited by TheJuggernautpunch (6135 posts) - - Show Bio
@moviegeek17: Nah . There's not too many Thundra fans around here . And I just don't who could be that villain , considering that the male tribes don't have such a leader like Thundra in sisterhood .
#11 Posted by moviegeek17 (1474 posts) - - Show Bio
@TheJuggernautpunch: 
good point. but anyway here's my idea for the movie. say the male tribes unite with a really badass leader who does systematic attacks on her society and challenges her to a one on one fight. ( i'm thinking they'll get into more than one fight but im talking about the final fight). Anyways they fight and she wins of course and maybe kills him. but that only pisses off the tribes more. so she realizes that the only way to stop them is to go into the past and fight the a man who is stronger than the one who she killed. which set up a crossover with the fantastic four. thats my idea for it anyway

@moviegeek17: Not bad , only I don't see how going into the past would stop the tribes , and what the stronger man has to do with the tribes ?

@TheJuggernautpunch: 
i kinda stole that part from the comics lol. but if that doesnt work for the movies then another ending could be something along the lines of mass chaos in her world with men rioting everywhere. and more villains (for her world anyway) showing up, kind of like the escalation theory at the end of batman begins

Well she has used wire-work and performed back-flips and things with them in New Moon She looked awesome and she has an athletic-style body, so I'm sure she'll have no problem in an action role.

@AngelFrost: thats about what i was looking for, thanks. because the look is dead on for sure. and she can act and bring presence, something i always profess that i think comes before even look for a character, as they have to be 3-dimensional and believable. but action is heavily important to Thundra, as she is a highly skilled warrior and alot of her time is spent outclassing and beating down pretty much everyone who makes the mistake of getting in her path (and alot of chain swinging, think Gogo from Kill Bill). yep, then im sold that Rachelle is the woman for job. now the next question is who plays the rest of the cast? (outside of the obvious one for Hulk who is Ferrigno's voice mixed w/CGI).
#21 Posted by AngelFrost (2833 posts) - - Show Bio
@CATMANEXE:  Definately, screen pressence is everything, and Rachelle can mystify with just a look, it's really great.  I have full confidence in Rachelle.  [:  & Ferrigno, definately as Hulks voice.    As for She Hulk ...
 
Kristanna Loken - stared in action films like  Terminator 3 and BloodRayne. Plus, she's super tall (5'11)  perfect for She Hulk.


#22 Posted by DevilmanEX (617 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know........these girls look fit but none of them look like an Amazon or Femizon for that matter.  They are too skinny.   Based on how she is drawn in Hulk and Fall of Hulks she looks almost as muscular as She Hulk.  Marvel lists Thundra at 7'2"  350Lbs.  I'm not saying you have to get someone THAT tall but definitely someone at least 6' who regularly works out.  I don't mean working out to stay trim I mean serious body building.  If I saw a Thundra movie I want to believe she could fight the Hulk or at least kick my ass lol  She'd have to be built like Gina Carano but taller.  With the added height she'd definitely weigh more too but Gina Carano has the mass for Thundra if they were same height.  There has to be some body builder chic who is cute and can act

#23 Posted by AngelFrost (2833 posts) - - Show Bio
@DevilmanEX:  Do you know how many women are 6 foot?   - not many. Overmuscular women just look disgusting, they may look pretty in comics, but it wouldnt translate well in real life.  Rachelle is only 5'7' but she does have a killer figure. It's not over muscular but not super thin, Hair is important also, and Rachelle's hair is beautiful.    Kristanna Loken is 5'11,  so she's really tall for a woman and she is super athletic,   You see her in Terminator?  - or kick ass in BloodRayne? - she hass definately got the balls.
 
BodyBuilder chicks aren't generally cute either ...
#24 Posted by DevilmanEX (617 posts) - - Show Bio
@AngelFrost:   I agree and disagree.  6' tall chics aren't AS common as women 5'5''  but thats why casting has to do their job.  In LA, Miami, and NYC tall women are abundant.  Most runway models are 6' or taller.  I agree that she shouldn't be over muscular.  I didn't mean like a female heavy weight body builder but as a personal trainer who works in a gym I see women who are muscular all the time.  Some women over do it but most I see don't.  I just think she can't have like twig arms then I be able to suspend enough belief that she can beat a big dude up.  Thundra doesn't do crazy martial arts she's just crazy strong.  I feel her presence when she comes on the scene in comics is dominating, almost frightening.  I don't feel a girl who is just fit and not muscular would make me fear her the way Thundra does.  The woman fights the Hulk for christs sake lol just my opinion....I'm gonna see if I can get a pic so you can see how muscular I mean
#25 Edited by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio

I think potential characters need just to kick off her origin and introduction
(noting like any comic movie continuity can be tweeked to accommodate)

Thundras future timeline

enemy arch = Mahkizmo
enemy = The Android Champion
warring faction (generic barbarians) = Machus
potential enemy = Arkon

Thundra also had a ward in her timeline, basically her chief science officer and best friend.

(who seems to have never been named, only refereed to as sister, like most Femizonians we're)
and countless generic unnamed United Sisterhood members (we're i a writer i would develop these characters, give Thundra more relations. I would actually play out the whole thing prior to timetravel and meeting 616 characters even, its more elegant like that i think)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
in 616 the present

a brief Hulk appearance and costars the F4 are obligatory
 
The Frightful 4
Wizard, Trapster, Medusa, Sandman, (and of course Thundra herself)

possibly work The Grapplers into this for effect?
 
ends with a final confrontation with Mahkizmo in present day.
 
questionable whether one would bring her daughter Lyra into this, as that constitutes a whole different and latter story, and the two only associated once by accident? really the above events lead to Lyra ever happening.
 
those are my thoughts on it anyways. Thundra would really work as a movie if done right. maybe a slight chance of being an F4 part 3 as it would introduce both the Frightful 4 and The Inhumans, i dunno.
 
@DevilmanEX:
Hollywood magic compensates for those factors, it always does.
height is almost always faked in film using a variety of tricks. putting
on muscle isnt hard for anyone to do quick either, nor learn to fight.
Wesley Snipes is a prime example of that.
#26 Posted by DevilmanEX (617 posts) - - Show Bio
@CATMANEXE: lol yea hollywood magic added 10lbs on every actor in 300 and drew on definition.  Hollywood magic also made the Hulk really look Hulking.  I'd go with your choice of actress but they would have to give her some type of 300 treatment for me to believe.  And I don't just mean special effects to have her lift and throw stuff a la Terminator 3.  I want to see a menacing presence cuz Thundra def isn't as charismatic as Jennifer Walters who I wouldn't mind going with more fit, less muscular but definitely tall actress.   Bottom line I just feel whichever actresses would play either needs to look like she can take the average joe in an arm wrestling match lol and pretty enough to be out of his league..........Go strong women!
#27 Posted by CATMANEXE (17052 posts) - - Show Bio
@DevilmanEX: agreed. to much. i think Rachelle has the experience to pull that, looking at her experiences at imdb anyways. personally im voting She-Hulk out since she doesnt have alot of relevance to THundras initial story and they wont meet untill much later (though an eventual Lady Liberators film would be right on). thats just me. but like i said size just isnt an issue. thats never what it really is in films.

@AngelFrost:  I saw new moon but not twilight, i didn't really pay attention to it though. but now that i realize that she is in it ill give it another look. Cause she is straight up awesome and i'll pretty much think of her as a vampire thundra lol
#29 Posted by AngelFrost (2833 posts) - - Show Bio
@DevilmanEX:  There aren't many 6' foot tall actresses in Hollywood,  and the ones that are 6 feet tall, are well, old (Brooke Shields & Jane Lynch for example) - And I'm taking into consideration acting ability aswell.   It's not impossible for actors and actresses to gain muscle or weight for their roles, they do it all the time. I bet Kristanna was at the gym several times a week to train for her role in Terminator.  I know what you mean, lol,  I'm just saying that it's not at all easy as what your saying,  Sometimes certain aspects have to be neglected from Comic to Screen,  & factors like muscles are changeable and height can be added by heels etc ...    Tom Cruise is about 5 foot 7, which is considered quite small for a man, but thats easily deceivable in his movies.
#30 Posted by AngelFrost (2833 posts) - - Show Bio
@moviegeek17:  Rachelle isn't featured that much in Twilight and New Moon,  but she definately makes an impression.  She's the crazy, red haired vampire who does all the backflips and runs from the Wolves in New Moon.   - She has an even shorter role in Twilight, but you get to hear her voice which just sends shivers down my spine!
#31 Posted by moviegeek17 (1474 posts) - - Show Bio

first off its awesome to finally see some thundra fans, i've been looking around forever for this! lol But seriously i've got a few things that i definitely want in a thudra film otherwise whats the point of it if it sucks right?
 
1.) Rachelle Lefevre must be Thundra!!! look at her she is beautiful! and i think she is more than up for kicking the marvel u's ass (just saying) 


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. the first movie should be about her going up the ranks of the sisterhood to become the strongest woman warrior there is.
3.) set up some new thundra villains (cause to be honest she needs a couple more that appply to her world.
4.) by the end of the first film or maybe the second film she must realize that the only way to win her war is to travel back in time and defeat the world's strongest man.
5.) Thundra must be a badass. i dont want hollywood making her out to be a wimp. i dont mind there being character development like doubt or anything. but when push comes to shove she must be able to woop lot of ass in as badass of a way possible.
6.) make it about her. worry about the hulk and the rest of the marvel u later. we need to see what someone like her is capable of before we get the cool fanboy moments.
7.) get someone who likes the character to make the movie and it will be hard to go wrong with it
 
what do you guys think? oh and sorry about ranting lol

@AngelFrost:  hmm...I just realized I was being very sexist.  Actors gain and lose weight all the time.  Christian Bale (supposedly) went from 170lb in Equilibrium to 120lb in The Machinist to 230lb in Batman Begins (prep work he cut down to like 200lb before shooting).  Taking that into consideration an actress can do it just as much.  I do want to point out though 93% of actors/ actresses are unemployed.  So I'm sure there are some tall women who can actually act but just aren't in public eye.  
 

@CATMANEXE:

I definitely agree that looks aren't everything.  But in movies its the director's job to harness the talent of the actors and get the desired result for the character.  Its the happy medium between looks and ability.  In movies looks usually, not always, but usually gets people cast.  When you send your head shots to an agency they pretty much look to see if they need your look 'type'.  In theater ability has a little more to do with it.  
 
But hey I understand both you guys just really want the actress to know what shes doing on camera.   That's 100% understandable lol  OOO remember though Christopher Reeves was pretty green when he was in Supes I

1.)First off awesome job with the manipulation i dig it :)
2.)  thanks for the site
3.) Awesome is her voice like badass mixed with authoritative?
4.) thanks. i've had these thoughts on a movie for her for some time now as you can tell lol. 
5.) there is a slight tweak that i want to add to my idea though. i want thundra to straight out beat the thing in her 2nd or 3rd  movie(i think the 3rd movie would be best). Cause the one thing that always pissed me off about their fights was that she pretty much won all the times they fight but then they would pull something at the end that would be like she won but not officially, that always bothered so i think it should be changed lol.

She's too buff. in my opinion, Thundra has to be both strong and sexy, but overly buff chicks are kind of. well not thundra lol. look at how she is drawn in the red hulk lately strong but still feminine, they have got to maintain that if they want to cast thundra correctly and thats why Rachelle Lefevre in my opinion would the perfect thundra for a movie.

 But your right, it's ashame that tall women aren't recognised more.  I'm pretty tall myself,  Infact, I'm the tallest among my girl- friends, and I hate it. :/  - So I guess it's a confidence thing when it comes to famous tall women, and the fact that Hollywood aim at the 'smaller' actresses for television and movie roles ... all in a sexist attempt to make the male look more dominant, I believe.

@AngelFrost: I couldn't agree with you more.  Most male television and movie actors aren't that tall.  You do have some models who convert to acting and thats another story but for the most part they aren't.  So how do you make em look big?  You cast a smaller cast around them.  In theater its actually closer to the other way around because you strive for the stage presence so you want tall folk. I know all this because I'm in that 93% I told you about lol Half the employees I work with in the gym are unemployed actors.  But nonetheless you go girl for being tall!  Most confident guys I know like tall chics.  Now I'm gonna find my Thundra at that link

@DevilmanEX:  Yeah. Women are getting taller and men are getting shorter, lol.    Famke Janssen, Karolina Kurkova, Rebecca Romijn and Kristanna Loken (all 5 foot 11) have all been famous Supermodels and converted to acting. [:   (Famke and Rebecca in X-Men, Karolina in GI Joe Movie and Kristanna in Terminator/BloodRayne)     Thankfully, I'm a Media Student,  so I know most of the tricks they use.  Tom Cruise always demands that most of his camera angles are low-angle, so that he appears to look taller than he actually is,  and smaller cast-members are also hired aswell.   Go Guy! - I'm sure you'll find an acting job soon. ^_^   and they do? - I've dated a few guys who have been smaller than me, the men seem to be short where i am from.

I'm not suggesting Beth is a good actress just that she has the right physical build.She's only playing Thundra...she doesn't have to say much. If she's going to be fighting She-Hulk I bet she could make it look more believable than Rachelle..

It's not very hard to make someone look taller.They do it with Wrestlers all the time.It's all about the camera.
