Can't say that I am not disappointed. Just start to think she's got the look and interest in comics.

Hmmm not my first choice but she would have been acceptable.

Jaimie was never confirmed for the role in the place -.-

there's no point in listening to rumors, it could literally be ANYONE

just wait until the studio, actress or director announces it.

I'm a fan of hers but she was wrong for the part.

Agreed.

And these are just rumors, nobody thought Affleck was going to be Batman, everyone who were rumored to play the role turned out to be false.

Nah she's not. She has the wrong natural charisma/presence and does not fit the body type. She does not project natural strength, imposing, or wise figure. She comes off as acted instead of being natural.

Now I'm not trying to be harsh when I say this just honest. It also doesn't speak of a person's true character ones you get to know them or what's on this inside. It's just something people superficially project without having to do with what they actually are or behave.

If she entered a group with no leader I wouldn't automatically look to her for leadership or wisdom. If she threatened me I most likely feel the urge to laugh in her face despite out threatening she might be. Sure some acting can help, camera, directing can fake it but you can't escape what you have. Though major body reconstruction can help some people. Lets not forget she doesn't the physique for the role. I would be afraid to push her too hard or she'll get hurt.

Now I'm not saying Gina Garano should get the roll. She falls short in other areas but she's got the believable physique that projects that strength. (I really wouldn't want to mess with her) Not sure if her charisma/presence projects that also because I only saw her in two movies.

Jamie Alexander at best might be able to fake an agile fighter but not the type of power fighter Wonder Woman is.

Now of course you have your opinion but this one is mine.

Megan Fox with the big boobies for the win!

im sorry but shes more believable than the other 3 rumored choices. wonder woman isnt this sexy eye candy hero. shes a bad ass amazon and imo jamie is the only one who can fit that role. have you even seen the other 3 rumored names? there super models

Even if it were true saying she is more believable than the other three rumored choices doesn't help her much considering how short they fall in suitability.

wonder woman isnt this sexy eye candy hero shes a bad ass amazon.

That we both agree with. That's why I want someone who projects that in both physicality and in presence.

imo jamie is the only one who can fit that role.

That's where our opinions differ. I don't believe she does.

have you even seen the other 3 rumored names? there super models

Yes and I'm disappointed with each one of them. I'd rather they keep looking than settle for what may or may not be the best of the bunch.

@allstarsuperman: Wonder woman is not her boobs. If boobs are all you want, watch something else.

@dernman: I'm not scared of Ben Affleck yet he's Batman... You're point doesn't really make sense. Why should the actress playing WW intimidate you to be able to play an intimidating character?

My point make perfect sense. Perhaps it's just you. You saying that about Affleck doesn't make sense though.just because someone was cast in a role doesn't mean that are right for the part. Not saying he is or isn't right.

Because if they're not intimidating then they can't fully play an intimidating character. Acting is only half the job of fitting a character or they could choose any actress who can act to play any role. Part if it is natural projection. Someone can be a great actor but no matter what they do can't be a certain type because no matter how good they are because they are limited by themselves and their own qualities. It could be physical or something else.

Take a young Billy Murry for example. Now I'm not saying he is some great actor but say he was. There is no way I would ever buy him in the role of Conan the Barbarian even if he bulked up. There is no way I would buy Bobcat Goldthwait (again not saying he's a good actor) as some lothario who can seduce the hottest woman in the world just by walking into the room.

People have a presence about them. Thats both physical and natural charisma. Now acting can bring them to many different places but it can't bring them too all.

I don't have to try. They are both characters that don't fit the roles because of their own natural self. One might be greater than the other but that was purposely done provide you with an obvious and undeniable example so you can understand my point since you're having such a hard time getting it. Nice attempt in trying invalidate what I said though. :p

@dernman: So in your opinion the same actress who plays Sif the Asgardian warrior in Thor is not the right person to play the Amazon princess Wonder Woman?

Yes but then again I was also of the opinion that she wasn't right for Sif either. Don't get me wrong. She was entertaining and fun to watch I just didn't buy her as an Asgardian Warrior. She's a twig with no muscles. Beautiful though as she is she's not much different than those actresses Tazz was talking about and the reasons they are bad. She might be easier to fake being an quick/agile warrior but not one who immediately looks like she has strength/power in her from the first moment you see her without doing anything.

You sound like you think the person who played Thor would be good for playing Superman.

What's wrong with supermodels? When did it become cool to like ugly chicks?

I was told Marvel wouldn't allow Jamie to play as WW. I was really hoping they would cast her, but I can see the conflict between being in Thor AND DC's Wonder Woman.

Im really glad she didnt get it, she was always one of my least favourite options.
