Rumor: Is Jamie Alexander playing Wonder Woman in ‘Batman vs. Superman’?

Posted: November 4, 2013 in Movies

There’s a ton of superhero talk going on these days, especially with Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World releasing in the United States on Friday.  One of the film’s stars, Jamie Alexander – who plays the Asgardian warrior Sif – recently sat down with Forbes magazine during Stan Lee’s Comickaze Expo over the weekend to talk shop.

Alexander began discussing The Dark World and it’s surprising overseas box office numbers (newsflash, it’s a hit) and stated that Marvel definitely has plans for a third Thor film – depending on this sequel’s success.  The conversation then turned to potential Marvel/DC crossover appearances in which Alexander stated that she’s had thoughts about it.

The interviewer then asked what Alexander thought about Ben Affleck playing Batman in Batman vs. Superman in 2015, to which she responded that she thinks he’s perfect for the role because she “kind of knows the story line for that movie.”   Hmm.  How does she know the story for that film?  Rumors have been flying lately that Wonder Woman is going to be in the Man of Steel sequel.  Could Warner Bros. have been talking to Alexander about playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming film?  Did she read the script?  So many questions…

The interview probed some more into her comments, to which she responded;

“I would love for DC to put Wonder Woman in one of their upcoming flicks, either in her own movie or Batman vs. Superman, or just something even to introduce her. … Being in the comic book world, we know a lot of the same people at DC and Marvel, so we hear a lot of things, but it’s all speculation right now. But I would absolutely love that [Wonder Woman appearing in one of the upcoming films]. Thankfully and gratefully, I’m appreciative to the people who ask my opinion of the character, and that’s been pretty amazing.”

Alexander really is the perfect actress for the role.
