Ali Larter as Wonder Woman

#1 Posted by mrjoshua (76 posts) - - Show Bio

Personally I think if they ever do a Wonder Woman movie they should go the Superman route and find someone noone has heard of before. Go to some Mid Western town and find some corn and milk fed girl to play the part. Some girl who has been raising barns and milking cows her whole life. But doesn't look like a body bulider and still has a very feminie quality to her. I have had problems where Wonder Woman is depicted as man with long hair and boobs.  
 
However if a celebrity is what people are looking for, I suggest ali Larter from Heroes. I recently saw her in the movue Resident Evil and I thought she had a reasonable build and athletic movement to carry herself as WW. And don't let the blonde hair get in the way, she can easily dye it.  I think she has amutiry to pull off the role as Amazon Princess and also a layed back quality where she wouldn't make the portrayal overly serious. She has also been apart of the Sueprhero world so she would already understand the imporatnace of getting the character right.  
 
I'm sure there are other women who could easily fit the role. This is one of my suggestions. I'm interested in reading what other people think. Thank you.

A bad choice for WW but a good choice for Cheetah.

Picture would be nice

#11 Posted by mrjoshua (76 posts) - - Show Bio

I would like to know why people think she is a bad choice. I do agree she might be a good Cheetah. However she always plays a bad character or someone with some sort of problem. I liked to see her do something else. I'm basing my opinion from her in the movie Resident Evil 3 and on the show Heroes. If you aren't familiar with her work I don't think a picture is going to do it for you. I'm not saying she's the perfect choice but from the other actresses I've heard mentioned I don't feel strongly about them. You can;t go with just looks alone. There has to be a strong presence to their character. And they have to look convincing in a fight scene. I've seen her in a fight scene and I think she looks like she can kick ass.

She's a bad choice because she's a terrible actress.

Ali Larter would be a great choice for a few other characters but not Wonder Woman. Reason: Totally has the wrong look & build for Wonder Woman plus she doesn't put off any majestic or regal vibes that makes you think Wonder Woman in my opinon.

I believe it was the story that didn't work...
 but then again I happened to like the movie and don't see what people are fussing over...
 
Sorry, personal rant.

Yeah the storyline for Superman Returns was crap. Brandon Routh wasn't bad as Superman. The costume design however was bad, especially giving him that small kiddie style "S" insignia. Better script &  better costume design would have helped out Routh in a big way.  Okay back to Larter-Wonder Woman talk now....

Thank you to those who gave reasons why she's not a good choice. Like I said I don't think she is the perfect choice but I wanted to throw it out there and see what people thought. As far as her acting ability, that's a matter of opinion. I don't think she's great but I like her on Heroes. I do agree she might actually make a good Cheetah. So if she were picked for Cheetah, who do think would fit against her as Wonder Woman? I think who ever plays the superhero should match the person playing the supervillain and vice versa. 
 
Also  I was referring to when they picked Christopher Reeve as Superman. He was an unknown theater actor at the time. I think he made a great Superman. Brandon Routh was picked mainly cause he resembled him.  Brandon wasn't a bad Superman. That movie was wrong on so many levels. Please don't  get me started.  Lex Luthor seducing an old lady for her money? As if he would need to.

Ali Larter is pretty but she has not the the "right" body. Catherine Zeta-Jones? Nah. She's tool old and not very friendly. What about Jessica Stroup?

I don't know about her acting, but I think she would look fine for it if she died her hair. But since so many people say she's a bad actress, I'm inclined to believe them, and I'll also pass. 

I think there's a good unknown out there somewhere.

oh come on you want 45 year old actress to play Wonder woman?
#36 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not a fan of Sandra Bullock at all. Maybe that chick from NCIS. She looks the part.

Ali Larter is awesome, but not Wonder Woman unfortunately. :/  
I've always seen Ali as Ms Marvel to be honest.

@AngelFrost:  Agree with you, as WW is a bad choice, she's a great actress but she doesn't look like to her...
