Slumdog Millionaire chick? I don't see it physique-wise, though I suppose she could bulk up. In terms of the face, yeah I can kinda see it.

if she bulks up and lightens her skintone a bit she could probably pull it off. I think they can do better though.

I think her skin color is perfect for WW but that's about the extent of any similarities.

Looked her up. Don't think she's too dark - in my opinion, comics WW should be darker due to growing up on an island. Pinto has a WW look too. If she has the acting ability, I say give her the part.

@ostyo: @joygirl: @jphulk26: @jointron33: You should have posted a pic...

Personally, I wouldn't use the term "too dark" she is a little frail though. Very cute. She looks like Diana.

how about Priyanka Chopra:

well they've had a full on black man play the king pin and a norse God so i don't think that's really a Big deal.

But yes, she's way darker than wonder woman is portrayed in the comics, and Wonder woman's eyes are blue.

So personally i would say i would want a woman who was more the same tone as Diana to play her, this woman is also too frail, and not attractive enough to be wonder Woman.

But before anyone says this is racist because the words "too dark" are used I wouldn't want a Scandinavian or Irish girl playing Wonder Woman either, They'd be too pale!

Considering Wonder Women is suppose to be an Amazonian, I'm going to be slightly upset if they go with a pasty white actress to play her.

Morena Baccarin anyone? (Firefly, V, Homeland)

It's not that she's to dark, it's that she's not athletic/physically outstanding enough.

No, she's not a good actress and she's too frail. Gemma Arterton would be great or cast someone new entirely.

how about Priyanka Chopra:

She seems nice.

I don't know about an Indian actress to play her, I'd prefer her to be played by a Mediterranean looking woman. I'm all for more roles going to non-white people in Hollywood, but Diana's character is so tied to Greek myth, it wouldn't make sense to have her played my anyone who can't look the part.
