Three Actresses Test for Female Role in Batman vs. Superman
This weekend Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in Marvel Studio’s Thor films, spoke about having discussions with Warner Bros. about a new comic-related project. This lead many to believe that she might be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. Given Greg Silverman’s comments on the character, it’s not unreasonable to think that the character might appear in the Zack Snyder movie.
Now, Variety is reporting on three actresses that have gone in to test for a female role in the Man of Steel sequel, which they say might be either Wonder Woman or Bruce Wayne’s love interest. Among the names they list are Fast and Furious’s Gal Gadot, G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s Elodie Yung, and Quantum of Solace’s Olga Kurylenko (reported earlier today by Schmoes Know).
In addition, they note that a fourth actress may have gone in to read for the role, which is being described as “tall, brunette, athletic and exotic.” The site also notes that, due to her obligations with Marvel, it is unlikely that Jaimie Alexander will be cast in the role, be it for Diana or for another character.
