So we have our Wonder Woman, played by Israeli Fast & Furious alum Gal Gadot, and Steve Trevor in Star Trek’s Chris Pine. We also have our director, Patty Jenkins (Monster). To fan-cast this movie is a little bit difficult since there are quite a bit of characters connected to WW and we don’t know how many have already been cast. I’m trying to stick with primary/known villains and allies (especially those on Themyscira), and especially characters rumored for the movie.
A sequel has been confirmed for December 2019! Production and casting should begin next year.
*UPDATE – WW cast officially announced!*
*UPDATE* Robin Wright has been confirmed for the role.
Included in the fan-cast was Charlize Theron, Diane Kruger, Jessica Chastain, Joely Richardson, Katheryn Winnick, Lena Heady, Milla Jovovich, Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman, and Rosamund Pike with Charlize at #1.
*UPDATE – Ann Wolfe is confirmed as Artemis.
The poll included – Alexandra Daddario, Alyssa Sutherland, Amanda Righetti, Gaia Weiss, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Jessica Chastain, Missy Peregrym, Olga Kurylenko, Olivia Wilde, Rachel Nichols, Riley Keough, and Rosamund Pike – with Rosamund Pike at #1.
CASSANDRA “Cassie” SANDSMARK (Wonder Girl)
I’m not sure we’ll see both versions of “Wonder Girl,” but we could still see Cassandra as another fellow Amazon on Themyscira.
*UPDATE – Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways. Skyler Samuels removed due to casting in The Gifted.*
DONNA TROY (Wonder Girl)
Out of the two Wonder Girls, Donna is more likely to appear in the DC Universe. Not sure what her exact role would be, if she’ll ever take the “Wonder Girl” mantle, etc. But perhaps she’ll at least be on Themyscira (becoming the new “Diana”?).
*UPDATE* Lucy Davis is Etta Candy.
The poll included: Carey Mulligan, Charlotte Sullivan, Elizabeth Banks, Emilia Clarke, Jenna Coleman, Michelle Williams / Alexandra Metz, Jurnee Smollett, Kerry Washington, Marsha Thomason, Naomie Harris, Yaya DaCosta – with Elizabeth Banks at #1.
Lyla would be a cool easter egg for the DC universe in general so to have her on Themyscira would be a neat introduction for the potential dangers coming to their world(s)…
*UPDATE – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Elizabeth Debicki removed due to casting in GOTG Vol. 2. Virginia Gardner removed due to casting in Marvel’s Runaways.*
I really don’t know the likeliness of being introduced to new Amazons in future WW films since many were established in the first film already…But just in case, why not have Mala pop up?
*UPDATE – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Skyler Samuels removed due to casting in The Gifted.*
I didn’t really know what age range Nu’Bia should be, so it’s pretty wide. I’m going to assume she would be around Gal’s age, or slightly older. I also don’t know the probability of her character being in the DCCU. She may even be played by a relatively unknown actress. We’ll see I guess!
*UPDATE* Ann Ogbomo will be Philippus!
The poll included: Angela Bassett, Dominique Tipper, Gabrielle Union, Gina Torres, Jurnee Smollett, Kerry Washington, Naomi Campbell, Taraji P Henson – with Angela Basset at #1.
*UPDATE* Connie Nielsen will officially play Diana’s mother, Queen Hippolyta!
The poll included: Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Connelly, Joely Richardson, Kate Winslet, Lena Heady, Lynda Carter, Rachel Weisz – with Charlize at #1.
*UPDATE* Steve Trevor will officially be played by Chris Pine!
The poll included: Alan Ritchson, Armie Hammer, Cam Gigandet, Eddie Redmayne, Freddie Stroma, Garrett Hedlund, Jeremy Sumpter, Justin Bruening, Mike Vogel, Ryan Gosling – with Ryan at #1.
*UPDATE* David Thewlis has been confirmed as Ares.
The fan-cast included Aidan Turner, Craig Parker, Damian Lewis, Daniel Day Lewis, Edgar Ramirez, Eric Bana, Gerald Butler, Jason Isaacs, Joseph Fiennes, Kevin McKidd, Luke Evans, Luke Goss, Richard Armitage, Rufus Sewell, Timothy Olyphant, Zach McGowan – with Gerald Butler at #1.
CHEETAH (Barbara Minerva)
*UPDATE! Patty Jenkins confirmed Kristen Wiig for the role of Cheetah in the sequel.
The poll included Alicia Vikander, Camilla Belle, Charlize Theron, Dominique Tipper, Evan Rachel Wood, Gemma Arterton, Gugue Mbatha-Raw, Jana Kramer, Kate Beckinsale, Lynn Collins, Meagan Tandy, Missy Peregrym, Moran Atias, Natalie Dormer, Olivia Wilde, Paula Patton, Rhona Mitra, Roselyn Sanchez – with Olivia at #1.
I think including Circe in the current universe will be a bit difficult to pull off but I’m waiting for some creative way for them to do so. She’s arguably one of WW’s greatest enemies and if done right, can prove so on the big screen.
*UPDATE – Bridget Regan removed due to casting in Agent Carter. Elizabeth Debicki removed due to casting in GOTG Vol.2. Jessica Chastain removed due to casting in X-Men Dark Phoenix.*
DOCTOR PSYCHO (Edgar Cizko)
It was really hard not to pick Peter Dinklage, but given that he’s Trask in X-Men and has a possible role in Avengers Infinity War, I decided to stay away from picking him. It also was hard casting this character due to the fact that I am not familiar with him at all. If I left an actor out let me know!
GIGANTA (Doris Zuel)
Okay, Giganta was probably the toughest to find actresses for. When not using her powers, Doris is 6’6″. I haven’t found an actress that’s actually that tall. All of these actresses are close to 6’…. They’ll have to do something creative in the films…
*UPDATE – Elizabeth Debicki removed due to casting in GotG Vol. 2. Lauren Cohan removed due to casting as Martha Wayne in Batman v Superman. Amber Heard removed due to casting in Justice League and Aquaman as Mera.
Seriously, why do they have to be so tall! Anyways, here’s some ideas for Clea, although I don’t even know if she’ll ever be in the DC films-verse… I guess time will tell.
*UPDATE – Elizabeth Debicki removed due to casting in GOTG Vol. 2. Kristen Hager removed due to casting in Gotham. Serinda Swan removed due to casting in Inhumans. Milla Jovovich removed due to casting in Hellboy reboot. Alice Eve removed due to casting in Marvel’s Iron Fist.*
I think there’s maybe 3 people who took the alias Silver Swan. I don’t know which version they’d go with (if this character would ever be seen on the big screen) so this is just a fan-cast for all 3 in one…Which is the direction I think they should go anyway.
*Update – Amber Heard removed due to casting as Mera in Justice League and Aquaman. Jessica Chastain removed due to casting in X-Men Dark Phoenix. Alice Eve removed due to casting in Marvel’s Iron Fist. *
I am the American success story, Kimberly, I am rags-to-riches, I am everything the Wonder Woman pretends to be. And the difference is that I earned all of it. Through my blood, sweat and tears, I earned it. I made myself who I am. If there is a Wonder Woman in this world, and I stress if… it’s me.
Veronica, or as some call her, Wonder Woman’s Lex Luthor. Fun fact, Elizabeth was picked to play Veronica in the WW CW show (before it got cancelled). Again, don’t know if she’ll be in the DCEU, I think it’d be interesting if she was and met up with Lex Luthor…(mwahhahaha…I’ll stop now). Anyways, let me know who you would pick!
*UPDATE – Kristen Hager removed due to casting in Gotham. Nicole Kidman removed due to casting in Aquaman. Jessica Chastain removed due to casting in X-Men Dark Phoenix. Alice Eve removed due to casting in Marvel’s Iron Fist.*
The Amazons so far:
So that’s the end of my Wonder Woman fan cast! Below you’ll see the top-voted picks:
