A list of people that I've heard as rumors or suggestions to be cast as Wonder Woman; all of which, are horrible picks that strike my heart with terror! Deimos himself could not conjure up such a frightening list of casting possibilities....
 
In no particular order of atrociousness...

- Megan Fox 
- Beyonce
- Jessica Alba
- Kim Kardashian
- Angelina Jolie
- Sandra Bullock
- Olivia Munn (Big fan of hers, but doesn't look like WW)
- Jessica Biel
- Mischa Barton
- Kristen Kreuk (Again big fan, but not as WW...or Chun-Li, but that's a different subject)
- Vanessa Hudgens
- Eliza Dushku 
- Katie Holmes
- Salma Hayek 
- Julia Roberts
- Eva Longoria
- Katherine Heigl 
- Jennifer Garner
 
So there it is. The people who are absurdly laughable picks, yet are constantly being suggested as possibilities. 
 
I know there are more that have been rumored or suggested, so who would you hate to see as the Amazon Princess?

Okay I can understand all these choices (Eliza Dushku I can't understand why that is a bad choice though) with Wonder Woman an unknown is the right way to go.

In situations with iconic characters like these, it always seems best to go with an unknown. 

#14 Edited by CosmicSpiral (5471 posts) - - Show Bio

Michael Moore 
 
EDIT: Elisha Dushku was good in Dollhouse. She's too young and lithe to play Wonder Woman though. I would have nominated Jennifer Connelly before she turned into the Human Popsicle. 

#15 Posted by JediXMan (29524 posts) - - Show Bio
Natalie Portman. She's not a bad actress, but she doesn't look the part or have the voice that fits Wonder Woman.

What about Jennifer Connelly? I think she could pull it off?

#17 Edited by CosmicSpiral (5471 posts) - - Show Bio
@jimmyziogas: She could if she ate more and work out intensely. She has the gravitas to avoid self-parody.  
 
EDIT: I just realized she would be perfect as Zatanna.

I partially agree, but Wonder Woman is 6'.

Beyonce shouldn't be Wonder Woman under any conditions for the same reason Jessica Alba should never have been Sue Storm: They don't look anything like the character.

what about Laura Vandervoort or Erica Durance or Charlotte Sullivan.
#36 Posted by Archetype (731 posts) - - Show Bio

What about Jill Wagner?I think she's gorgeous but I don't know if she should be Wonder Woman however she was supposedly considered when Joss Whedon was writing the script.

She could actually fill WW's bra actually but the booty will be a distraction for the villains , and an R rating would be appropriate 
 
If you want to max out on that you could always use Denise Milani

@WW-Fan:
Thank you for adding Jennifer Love Hewwit to the list of not to play Wonder Woman. She has been tried to say why she wants the part and it's for all the wrong reasons.

Couldn't agree more! This is such a simple, yet constantly overlooked concept when they cast these movies!
 
When I saw Fantastic Four, I kept thinking, "Hm, so this is what Latina, not convincingly blond haired, 10 years too young looking for Reed Richards, Sue Storm looks like."

I'm sorry but Eliza Dushku and Jessica Alba are on the list for a reason. Without going into too much detail, basically:
 
They're both too short. 
Neither one's face, or body for that matter, looks like Wonder Woman's. 
Neither one's voice is right for an Amazon Warrior.
They're both too famous to convincingly be the face of WW for most fans of the character, especially Alba.
 
The point is that when you look at the list, yes some choices are worse than others, but the bottom line is that they're all wrong for the part. There might not be a unanimous choice for the perfect actress to play WW, but most fans would agree that there are a thousand women out there better suited for the role than Dushku or Alba. They're not going to satisfy everyone perfectly, but they can come close if they choose someone objectively, based on WW's actual physical and personal attributes.

ehm no! they can't really can't and they dont look like her at all! and also too short

No matter who they pick, I'm sure a lot of the body issues will be "fixed" in editing, whether we like it or not, lol. 
 
Plus, I don't think we can hope too much for a lady who looks exactly like Wonder Woman. Just look at all the people who played Batman. None of them look even remotely similar, so which one looks most like the one from the comics? (Also sometimes characters don't even look exactly alike between comics). 
 
As long as the movie is good, nobody will care about the inconsitensies. Who here complained that Ras Al Ghul wasn't an immortal kept alive with magic goo pits in Batman Begins? Or that Two-Face hatched one minor evil scheme and died? We probably wouldn't have cared about changes in any of the meh comic book movies (Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four, ect.) if they were just better. 
 
And I disagree, Jackson would be an awesome Wonder Woman, and I'd gladly buy a ticket to see it.

I disagree with the idea that nobody cares about inconsistencies as long as a comics movie is good. Batman Begins and Dark Knight were both really good movies, but for many fans there were still several things they could have easily done better. The difference between a good movie and a great movie is all in the details. Fans of any character with a vast history want movie adaptations to be great, not just good. 
 
In the case of Wonder Woman, casting is not just some small detail, but rather a crucial part of making the film come to life for the fans. If whoever they choose does not even have the most basic attributes, like height, fitness, convincing Greek Accent, etc, then fans are not going to like the film as much.

@Super Average Guy:

Well, yes casting isn't a small detail, but that's only because good casting is key to a good movie, along with music, directing, writing, ect.  I think the specifications you've said wouldn't be too hard to get, but we are probably going to have to accept some compromises. Comic fans and non-comic fans have different ideas about what makes a great movie.  
 
I'd just be happy if they made a Wonder Woman movie at all. Unless it turned out bad...

She should be played by someone who can act. That's all that really matters.
