While promoting Thor: The Dark World at Comikaze over the weekend, Jaimie Alexander made some comments to Forbes that heavily suggest she might be Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman. Also I spent my entire morning writing about Courtney Stodden, so now it’s comic book time, AND YOU’LL LIKE IT:
Then, things got even more interesting when Alexander answered a question about her reactions to the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman for Batman vs. Superman. She explained her respect for Affleck’s acting talent and how suitable she thinks he is for the role, asking that fans not be so quick to criticize the actor and instead to remember the misplaced skepticism regarding Michael Keaton’s casting as Batman nearly 25 years ago. The rest of the panel agreed with her assessment, by the way, as did the vast majority of fans in attendance when the panelists asked for a show of hands from the audience. Alexander went on to say followed that up by saying her confidence in Affleck’s casting is bolstered by the fact he is so suited for the particular Batman portrayal in the film — and her reason for that certainty is, as she put it, she “kind of knows the story line for that movie.”
So, by the end of the panel, we’d heard that Jaimie Alexander had had conversations with both Marvel and WB regarding their superhero movies, and that she knows things about the Batman vs. Superman film. What might that mean, exactly? Well, the obvious speculation is that she was approached for some sort of role in the WB super-team film, and the role that immediately comes to everyone’s mind is Wonder Woman. After all, Alexander demonstrated how perfect she’d be as the world’s most famous female superhero when she took on the role of Sif in the Thor franchise. She has the acting chops, she’s got the right look, and she has the personality, and we’ve seen her in armor swinging a sword to cut a path through an army of villains. Could it be that WB approached her about the role?
On top of that, Jaimie Alexander also retweeted the following fan-made poster during a time when she should probably be promoting the shit out of Thor:

So basically Warner Bros. watched the Thor movies and went, “Hey, look, Wonder Woman’s already in these. Let’s just buy her,” then hunted the homeless with helicopters because cocaine said it’d be awesome. Did I capture all that Hollywood magic right? Because I specifically left out the child hookers. These people know where I live.
