So far, the reviews I've seen for Haywire, starring Gina Carano have been generally positive. This leads me to believe she can act, clearly has the requisite physical skills and, to me, could be considered a serious contender to be cast (finally) in the role of Diana ? Thoughts ?
Gina Carano as Wonder Woman
I continue to hold out hope even though hope is not a strategy. Movie studios (Time Warner?) need to take notice of Gina in the exact opposite way of how they didn't take notice of how Lucy Lawless could have played Diana. It's long past due for a Wonder Woman movie even though we'll see at least one more Superman movie and probably a Bat reboot in a few years....
@dondasch: Her performance isn't really the highlight of the movie, it's the action sequences. Then again, her character isn't really given a wide range of emotions in the film, so it's tough to make a judgement call on her acting capabilities based on Haywire.
She doesn't act well and I think doesn't look feminine enough to play Wonder Woman. The whole thing look-wise (and it is hard to find, obviously) is that she's tough but also beautiful. Gina Carano is tough and looks good but it's in a very different way.
It was a great movie, actually. I was surprised it was as good as it was, and I liked how she focused on realistic grappling stunts, many if not all, of which she performed herself to take down larger, heavier men. She has amazing legs, athleticism and can definitely pull off a swimsuit if necessary.
And she is 5'8, which is a good height for an actress playing Wonder Woman (it's hard to find 5'11-6'0 tall women with the necessary training and looks to pull of an Amazonian appearance).
I absolutely agree that Gina is a great choice for Wonder Woman, especially after i saw FF6. This girl has the physical presence and ability to play Diana and to do her justice, i think. I mean she's not a professionally trained actor but she's definitely capable and her acting could be improved upon in prep for the film, just like an actor would improve their physical prowess b4 shooting by bulking up or fight training etc, she could take some classes or sum thing?
Why they've chosen to forego Gina and cast Gal Gidot i don't know, i mean i think she's fab don't get me wrong, but just not for WW…its like so far from the character (she's super-skinny, she doesn't have blue eyes, she's not commanding in her presence etc).
I also thought Jessica Biel would've been perfect as WW….but i think she declined or something to that effect?
